Our focus and mindset affect much of our lives and in all aspects, having a can-do mind can make all the difference.
So what exactly is a can-do mind..
and how can we make sure we have this Mindset..?
To have a can do mind is to have a positive and open mindset for what is possible to do and to achieve.
The alternative is to live within limits, often set within a negative frame.
A negative framing allows for only seeing negative possibilities or outcomes and sometimes none at all, setting this as a limit and therefore restricting potential.
With a can-do mind things look very different, the world is seen as one full of potential and possibility and we are open to just going with it and seeing where it takes us.. sounds far more fun doesn’t it 🙂
This can be done by simply taking a step towards something, even when it feels unfamiliar or scary and not allowing others limited perceptions to restrict you either.
Always stay open to the possibilities, they exist in abundance and can all be within your reach. Take that first step and just see where it takes you. Most of all enjoy it 😊
Everyday brings new opportunity for growth and change. Staying adaptable allows us to be present and open for each opportunity that comes our way.
Schedules and routines are important in training but not to stay the same for too long, only as long as needed. Then we can break the pattern as new opportunities for greater growth are presented to us.
Keep an open mind and heart always, there are many opportunities just waiting for you.
See the opportunities
See the possibilities,
Let your focus be this
Enjoy the way
And before you know it
You’ll be right there 🙏💛

Enjoy a week filled with blessed opportunities 🙏 💫
One of the most fundamental benefits of a movement practice, is the ability for it to be an avenue for self expression.
Although our movement practices may be similar once we have our foundational movement patterns we can begin to express ourselves individually from the most deepest level.
So often when doing so, we can then also discover new movement patterns that we may not have done or even thought to have done previously.
This way of expression in movement can bring the most beautiful sense of freedom just as in any form of art. You can combine it with music and bring all your creativity and passion forward into it. If you haven’t already done so, give it a try. It’s a great way to play and experiment also.
To achieve your exercise goals, consistency is key. Here are my 5 top tips to help you exercise consistently so you can be sure to see and feel the difference.
1.Be clear on you outcomes, both short and long term– rather than goals set intentions for outcomes as to how it will help you and remain focused on the short term first as the long term will come along with these.
2. Set Daily plans – schedule in your workouts as a regular pattern, make it as consistent as any other regular daily routine.
3. Prioritise – For your exercise to become and remain consistent it has to be a priority, stick to it like any other important commitment or appointment.
4. Focus on the feel good factor– Almost immediately your energy and mood will lift from exercising. Focus on this to keep your motivation levels high.
5.Connect– whether it be with others, your goal, motivation or however you choose to stay consistent, stay connected to it and maintain your focus, joy and enthusiasm. 😊
Stay consistent, enjoy the process and feel the difference 🙏💛💫
During the winter months maintaining positive habits can be difficult, however all the more important.
Keeping fit and healthy during the winter will help you to stay mobile and maintain good health, where you may otherwise be more likely to get under the weather.
Sometimes the weather may seem off-putting, when you have to make your way to the gym for example. However remind yourself always of how important it is and how good you will feel afterwards. Stay positive and keep up with your positive habits.
Exercise after a prolonged illness/injury can be a bit scary for some. Not knowing the right things to do or worring that it may make things worse can be some of the main concerns.
From personal and professional experience I have found the following to be most helpful;
Have a firm faith and vision for your recovery- see how you want to be and work your way towards it step by step.
Listen to your body and stay empowered-work with your body and what’s within your control and measure your outcomes from there.
Support your exercise plan with adequate nutrition- just as important and sometimes more so is your diet, its essential that you get the right nutrients for your recovery. Do your research and get advice as needed.
Overall you must believe you can improve, believe you can and you will. This will empower you to take all the actions you need and maintain it.
Empower yourself within and results will come without 🙏💫
A lot of people before they start exercise feel they don’t have enough time. Here are 3 top reasons of how and why to find the time.
Make it a priority- Once it’s a priority you’ll find the time, book it in your diary like any other important appointments.
You’ll have more energy and more time – with regular exercise you’ll find you have more energy and be more efficient with your time.
Without health there’s not time for much else– it can sound a harsh truth but without our health we will struggle to do much else. Make it a priority before it has to be and reap all the benefits from doing so. Your health is 100% worthy of your time and effort.
What we value most we will always find the time for, therefore it makes the most sense to value something of such importance and then you’ll always find the time.
