The success diet

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”

Why giving 110% is not helping you succeed.

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.”

Get a head start on your resolutions

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”

Talking practically The sun (in moderation, and with adequateContinue reading “Walk in the shade or run in the sun”

A tip to make time stand still

As I have found out and discussed before, time is such a precious commodity. But I’ve discovered a way to look at it which will give you more (I think…) Units of measurement Typically we’d measure time in seconds, minutes and hours. I’m not going to worry looking up who invented that, probably the Greeks,Continue reading “A tip to make time stand still”

To live, follow or chase your dreams.

At some point in our lives we have probably uttered the words “living the dream” with a slight hint of sarcasm when asked as to how we are doing or the progress of our days. I’m a big fan of sarcasm in general, but when applied to positive thinking, this sadly devalues the currency ofContinue reading “To live, follow or chase your dreams.”
