how to safely download torrents

I use hidemyass as my vpn. I notice that sometimes when I'm trying to download a torrent while connected to the vpn it won't download. I then do the following:

I exit from hidemyass thereby exposing my address
I wait a minute or 2 and usually the torrent starts to download
Immediately after the torrent starts downloading I exit QBtorrent
I then restart hidemyass and then restart QBtorrent
this usually seems to work. 2 questions: 1) is this safe and 2) is there a better way?
