Still Struggling With Motivation?

During a recent podcast with Gina, we talked about getting back into an exercise routine and going back to the gym. It was something that I’m very¬†familiar with, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to give you a quick progress update.

I’ve now been going back to the gym for 3 weeks, 4-5 times a week. I’ve discovered that if I just go to the gym 2-3 times a week my days off become too tempting for me to have “just another” day off. Always promising myself “I’ll go tomorrow!”, which of course I ended up repeating the next day, until every shred of motivation had been stripped away.

Body Wisdom

Our bodies influence how we think and feel in a way that goes beyond “gut instinct”. There is much wisdom in our physical being, yet we often remain oblivious to it, or even worse, railroad over it regardless. So what does it cost us to ignore the messages that millions of our own cells are giving us?

Today, I’ve been out-of-sorts (or crabbit, as they call it up here!) all day, feeling lethargic and even a bit nauseous… not to mention having trouble concentrating. Why? Largely because I chose to ignore what my body was telling me during the last 24hrs. Continue reading

Creating your own Boilerplate for life

Recently I joined a local business networking group. It’s a good way to get to know other local businesses and exchange a few referrals. It’s also a really good support group for developing your own business strategy. One of the things we all do at this group is give a 60 second review of our business. Some people call this an elevator speech. Previously I would normally make up my 60 seconds on the fly, as I’m quite happy to ad lib and sometimes the pressure results in a few amusing points that wouldn’t have come out in a totally prepared speech.

Get refreshed with a break of routine

It’s rather easy to fall into a trap of repeating the mundane, day after day. Whether that’s in your time at the gym, your commute to work or any other standard routine in your daily life, it can be easy to lose your spark and decrease motivation. However, as Chris and Paul discuss in this podcast, a little change can break the routine and quickly give you a fresh perspective, a new boost of motivation.
