We often talk to ourselves in a way we wouldn’t dream of talking to anyone else, even people we don’t particularly like. One of the problems is we know ourselves too well, we know our strengths and our weaknesses. Why do we so often focus on our weaknesses and things we can’t do? If we make a simple mindset switch, if we focus on our strengths we can change our self talk and raise our self belief. Life isn’t easy, be kind to yourself. Start showing yourself the same respect you show to others.
Do you ever think life is just passing you by so who cares, why should I start something now?
Think about it. Five years or even 20 years will come and go.
One thing that won’t change – you getting older as the years pass by.
What can change? You! You can start today to change how you want to be, look, feel and how healthy you want to be in 5 or 20 years.
You have that power! You can do something about it. You can start to do something today and stick with it to be the person you can be: healthy, fit, vibrant and with a positive mindset.
Will it be easy? I never said starting will be easy. As the time goes on, you will have your mindset focused on the fact that you *can* and will do this for yourself.
Will it be worth it? Oh yes! Ask yourself in 5 or 20 years. The new ‘older’ you will thank you for starting today. ❤

When you’re feeling blue,
Here’s what you must do.
Go for a run.
It may not sound like fun.
But when your world is grey
It’ll help brighten your day.
So slip on your running shoes
And chase away the blues.
It will help turn that frown
Completely upside down.
Mother’s Day is a great day when you still have your mother in your life. But when she’s gone it just becomes a reminder of what you have lost. Yesterday was a tough day. My mum has been gone 21 years this year, but the pain of loss can still rear its head on special occasions. Like Mothers day. So I hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day. For everyone who has suffered that loss, I feel your pain.
I was feeling down yesterday until I went for a run. Five and a half miles. It did the trick. There’s something about exercise that boosts your mood. It must be the endorphins. Running can serve many purposes. It can help with weight loss. It can boost cardiovascular fitness. And sometimes running can just be plain ol’ therapy.
