Record-breaking adventurer Sean Conway encourages us all to 'Live life a little differently', and tells us how to get started...

Apart from his fabulous ginger beard, Sean Conway is best know for his record breaking triathlon around the UK, where he ran, cycled and swam the length of Britain - an epic 4,000 mile journey which was recently featured on Discovery UK.

Completing the challenge Sean also became the first person to swim the length of Great Britain.

How does he do it? Thanks to his new spicy cheese sponsor Mexicana, and in the interests of helping the nation add a little adventure to their everyday lives, he's set out a few tips and shot a short video with inspiring thinking learnt on his numerous extreme adventures.

It's definitely worth checking out - if only to see how the wildest hair in adventure is getting on...


Sean's hacks for adventurous living ...

Be inquisitive

Think outside the box. Not every adventure needs to be epic, simply do something you've never done before or go somewhere you've never been and see what happens.


Forget your fear

I once decided to swim the length of Britain, 900 miles up the west coast, having never swum more than three miles in one go. Find your challenge and say yes to it - forget your fear and push yourself even harder. 


Spice up the everyday

Start small; take up a new hobby or sport, or learn to cook something new and exciting. You'll be surprised where new skills take you and I guarantee everything you learn will come in useful at some point along the way.


Always be prepared, and be prepared to be resourceful

Nowhere to stay? I sometimes sleep in my car. No shower? Swim in a river. But most of all, always carry a pack with essential items for that spontaneous adventure. 


Make the most of every moment

Whether you have a month, week, day or even an hour, go off and find something new. A map is your best friend - find somewhere you've never been before and go exploring!
