High Intensity Interval Training

23 Feb 2017

High Intensity Interval Training is a strategy that involves alternating short periods of intense exercise with less intense recovery periods.

The idea is that we do short periods of all-out work, followed by short periods of active rest to make the body work harder than it does during steady cardio exercise. An example might be 45 …

Listening attentively

22 Feb 2017

We just listen to what we want to hear. If what we’re being told doesn’t concur with our own thoughts, beliefs or how we see our lives, we tend to shut off. When it comes to others, the same principle may apply, if they’re that way inclined.

We listen to reply, because it would be rude not to, but we don’t listen to think or understand. We tend to work off our own understanding instead. If we’re struggling, or it’s something we want …

What we see & what we get

20 Feb 2017

In a world that has become more divisive we should be unique, open and honest what we see isn’t always what we get. We also must speak our truth, but do it in a way that others will listen, but not be dictated to.

What you see with me is what you get. I’m not one way in my blogs and another way in my personal life, but as we go about our daily lives we expect others to behave in the same way we do and …

Doing things to spite

19 Feb 2017

We can choose to do things to spite, or we can choose to do things in spite. There is a big difference. It takes a certain type of character to do things to spite, one that maliciously sets out to hurt, one who holds a grudge.

Although, it’s never easy having people in our lives who are and think it’s okay to be spiteful, it’s important we don’t just let it happen. Being on the receiving end means we’re not only dealing with abuse …

Something inspirational:

“On some dimension or other, every event in life can be causing only one of two things: either it is good for you, or it is bringing up what you need to look at in order to create good for you.

Our stories

17 Feb 2017

I feel fortunate to have created a platform, where I can use my experiences to talk about my story and that of my experiences. Our stories are our stories, the way we see our lives and that of our experiences.

Unfortunately, as it can sometimes go, other people’s recollections of our story may not agree with ours, but that shouldn’t matter because our story is our story. If someone else were to tell their version …

A healthier lifestyle

16 Feb 2017

For us to continue to maintain a healthier lifestyle, sometimes we need to make conscious mindful decisions. Not to means we’ll continue to rely on our unconscious already formed habits.

Unfortunately, the things we need to look out for are generally the things we tend to ignore. We become dependent on smoking or alcohol, which can affect our health. Perhaps we need to think …

Why we slip back

15 Feb 2017

I believe the reason we slip back into old patterns is because we’re not always in a good head space, period. We consciously tell ourselves we want a different life, but that’s where the similarities end.

We tell ourselves we’re going to make amends; that things are going to be different; that we’re going to get our act together; that we’re going to move forward; but the reality is that until …
