So this idea came into my head as I walked home after a morning run. I haven’t run properly in months and months. Whilst lockdowns lifting was exactly what I needed mentally, from a time point of view it hasn’t helped with my exercise routine. A quick Google says I’m not the only person toContinue reading “Positive thought dominance”
I don’t think my blog had any die hard fans, but if you are out there and have been pining for some mildly comedic, philosophical and rambling musings on life from me, I apologise as I certainly haven’t offered much in the way of that in recent months. I’m not dead, the virus hasn’t gotContinue reading “Plant seeds and they will grow”
This morning I woke up after a reasonable nights sleep, took a peep behind the curtain and was pleased to see a hint of blue in the sky and a frost free pavement. This is when it all went wrong. I started thinking! I checked the Met Office who told me with the windchill itContinue reading “My fear almost won…”
So I have had reasonable success when it comes to weight loss in the past few years. Helped and encouraged very much by my wife who works for a famous wellness brand. What’s my point? Throughout my weight loss journey and even today when I weigh myself weekly, I keep an eye on what theContinue reading “The success diet”
You must have heard this, if not succumbed to the cliche and muttered the phrase “giving 110%” at some point in the past. The thing is, it is unrealistic, in fact mathematically impossible so, it needs to stop to allow for your success to happen. We’re gonna need some metaphors for this discussion, and youContinue reading “Why giving 110% is not helping you succeed.”
With an ever changing situation in the world, businesses being forced to close and our economy on the rocks, now is definitely a good time to consider your back up plan. What are you going to do if it all goes wrong? Presuming you are still lucky enough to be employed/ working in the firstContinue reading “Build a back up plan now”
What have meatloaf and my Mum got in common? They both made me question my personal limits when it comes to accepting an instruction or an idea. Meatloaf famously sang “I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that.” I’ll save you a google; he wasn’t prepared to “forget the way you feelContinue reading “The Threshold of Acceptance”
Regardless of your chosen resolution for the impending new year, why not utilise the next few days to transition into the ‘new you’. Make some mistakes before 2021 even happens, and try to adopt any alternative behaviours or diets so that when the clock chimes and the calendar flips over you are ready. I wentContinue reading “Get a head start on your resolutions”
Sorry I’m gonna waffle on about podcasts again. But unlike previously when I have sung the praises of specific episodes for getting my head into gear, I’m gonna talk about the guests who join my hosts of choice. One of the issues with having spent a few hundred hours listening to podcasts this year, isContinue reading “Listen to the people you don’t know!”
Where is life taking you next? Are you wandering in hope of inspiration, or have you got a journey planned out? I first heard the bus metaphor for life over twenty years ago. People get on and off your bus as you travel through the day, weeks, months and years of your existence. But that’sContinue reading “There’s room on my bus, jump aboard!”
