Life on the river: hygge for rowers

Award-winning blogger and journalist, Patricia Carswell, shares her latest rowing adventures in her exclusive British Rowing blog – Life on the river

The clocks have changed, it’s blowing a hooley, the rowing club and leisure centre are closed again and the river’s flowing too fast to swim. Small wonder life feels a little dark.

This winter promises to be a challenging one, so I’ve decided that if I’m to get through it in one piece, I’m going to have to take active steps to keep my head above water. Instead of waiting around for despair to set in, I’m putting strategies in place to inject a little light into my life.
