Consistency is Key

Consistency is key in anything we wish to achieve.

Consistently leads to habits which then create our overall productivity and performance whether this be at work, home or in the gym, we need consistency in those things that are most important to us.

To be consistent it helps to have passion or some drive for what you are working on and for this to know your why.

Honour your progress

It’s important always to honour your progress and all you’ve put it in to your training.

There are several ways you can do this;

  1. Keep a record of your progressions.
  2. Reward yourself when you achieve milestones.
  3. Adapt as progress, enjoying the process.

The journey is where the joy is as well as keeping track of your milestones along the way, this is important, so you can really see how far you’ve come.

Enjoy the process and progress 🙏💛😊

3 Ways to Overcome Plateaus

Hitting plateaus in training is inevitable and a regular occurrence when training consistently and regularly. Even where we are gradually progressing with techniques and rep range these can still occur. However there is always a way to overcome.

Here are 3 steps to help you overcome them.

  1. The first thing is to recognise them and address them as quickly as possible, before becoming stagnant or bored. Then believe in your mind you can and will overcome this plateau, not allowing it to defeat you.
  2. Then break the mould of your training and diversify a little, this is as important for your mind as well as your body as its important to feel free and joyful in your training.
  3. Then listen to your body, feel what’s working and what isn’t and add or takeaway what you need. This also will apply to your diet as that can contribute significantly.

I hope you find these tips helpful and are able to apply where you need. Remember there is always a way. 💫

Most of all enjoy your training, stay happy and free 🙏🙂

There are no limits only plateaus and you must not stay there you must go beyond them

Constant Evolution

Finding the balance between learning new things and refining what we already know is a process of constant evolution, but one we’ll worth doing.

If we stay on the same thing for too long we may become very good at it but we can slowly become very stagnant and limited in this way.

When doing something new however it’s completely out of our comfort zone and for a while maybe difficult, yet if we enjoy it, worth all the effort put in and progress we see.

I have found the best approach is to have a balance of the two, that way you never become too limited or stagnant yet are always fulfilled in your growth as well as learning new things to constantly evolve.

Always enjoying the process.

Happy training 🙏😊💫

Diet & Training

A common challenge with any health and fitness goal is the balance of diet and training.

Both of these are important and equally help each other, no matter what your goals are.

When setting out on a goal it happens often that people are more motivated to eat healthier once training begins.

So first of all get your training routine set and started.

Then fit your diet accordingly. Do your best to eat and train at set times so your body gets used to the pattern and routine helps your metabolism to adjust accordingly.

Use common sense as well as intuition for what your body needs and follow any advice given.

Eating mindfully helps a lot as most of us will eat more than we need. Where this is not the case, eating little and often can be very helpful for resetting your metabolism and building up.

Principles in diet and training are similar and at the same time we are all unique,this is why it is so important to listen to your body as well as follow guidelines.

Most of all, remember to enjoy the journey. 🙏💫

Discovery

Each new day provides new beauty and insight,

As soon as we open our eyes, when we set our mind to see all the new and beautiful things,

Then each day can be filled with discovery and be a beautiful way of living,

A way filled with openness where every moment you will feel the newness,

Life is always changing

Nothing stays the same

In this is great beauty;

Let your every day be one of discovery 🙏💗

3 Ways of Mindfulness Practice

Practicing Mindfulness allows us to bring awareness and presence to the daily activities and make the daily things we do naturally more beautiful and enriching.

The main practices I have learnt and practice are;

  1. Mindful eating; being completely present whilst preparing and eating food. Offering gratitude and being mindful about all the effort that has gone in to the food and where it has come from.
  2. Mindful walking; being completely present with each footstep, feeling each foot as it touches the earth.
  3. Meditation; setting a time daily to focus purely on each in and out breath, allowing the breath to come and go naturally. Affirmations can also be used to help focus the mind.

Practiced Daily these Mindfulness practices are transformative and are the main ones recommended by @plumvillage teachings.

Give them a try and see the difference it can make to your life to experience each moment deeply. 🙏💗

Inner Guidance

Along our Journey in life and training we may have many guides, yet more often it’s the guide within us, that knows the best way.

The only thing stopping us is learning to listen and trust in it. This too is part of our journey and other guides in our lives can help bring us to this point.

If you look back in your life there will be moments where you have had this inner guidance, guiding you to go somewhere or not go somewhere and when looking back it is always correct.

Those times we listen we know we made the right choice and the times we didn’t we may wish that we did. Yet this is a skill never too late to learn, some people call this guidance, our intuition or God within the heart.

It is our highest self and so always seeks to guide us to what is our highest and best yet the smaller thinking mind can get in the way with old conditioning, fears or bad habits. This is the small self that becomes quiet through spiritual practice and mediation. We then learn to listen deeper and trust in the true self within.

Some helpful ways to connect more with the higher self are;

  1. Meditation– when we clear the mind chatter, intuition naturally comes.
  2. Learn to trust in it and act upon it.
  3. Filter out external distractions and old conditioning by dropping what we don’t need. Less is more.

Trusting in our inner guide is a practice and process, until it becomes natural. Once we connect more however, we can be far surer we are on the right path 🙏

To your highest self,

Miranda 💗

Maintaining Balance

Seek balance in daily life

Finding balance in our lives is a constant re-adjustment. As we are always changing and life is always changing, how much we need to give or recieve in certain areas is always adjusting.

With this, our mindset has to readjust also and sometimes we may experience a lag. We may perceive that we need more than we do based on past experiences or give more than we need to for the same reason, or to strive for something that is not necessary for our lives.

In finding balance our bodies and minds are the best signal, if we are out of balance and giving too much in a certain area we will be certain to feel the symptoms, such as fatigue or stress and if left too long this can worsen.

The first step to finding or refinding our balance then is to listen to ourselves and the feedback our body is giving and then make the adjustments accordingly.

We may need to either reduce or increase certain activities to find our balance again.

Another helpful practice can be to sit down and reevaluate our goals and see what still fits with where we are now and where we want to be. As we grow and change our goals will naturally change and/or we can find a different path.

Lastly trust your inner self, your intuition above all, it will always guide you to what is right for you and the correct balance in your life.

Enjoy the search, the growth and the process,

We are all a part of nature

And nature always seeks to find balance

Miranda 🙏💛
