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 🙏💛

Coping with stress is something many of us have to manage on a daily basis, as we are thrown in to situations that can be challenging or difficult to cope with.
So what are some of the best ways of coping with stress.?
Balance– having a good work/life balance is essential, make sure you get enough time for you.
Exercise– stressful situations can create excess energy, which can then be discharged healthily and in a positive way through exercise. By doing this you are making these situations work to your benefit.
Relaxation/Mediation– having a daily practice of relaxation and meditation can help you perform well under pressure, as having a calm mindstate that will come more naturally to you.
Explore other ways and options and find what way works best for you. Stress can work positively for us as well as negatively and it’s important to make it work for you. Following strategies that can make all the difference and ultimately put you in charge of the situation.
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.
So often in our busy lives we can be caught up by where we have been, or where we have to be, rather than simply being.
This has become such a way of life for many that it’s important to learn to be fully present once again, so how can we practice presence.?
Practicing presence first has to be realised as important for our health and wellbeing, more important than any past or future moment and truth is, this moment is really the only moment there ever is, and why it is most important. For if we miss it we are missing out on life.
The greatest way to train ourselves to be more immersed again in the now and practice presence fully, is through our senses.
Our senses are interacting with the world around us in the now and the more we become in touch with the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and sensations all around us the more present we can become.
Make it a daily practice to become absorbed in one or more of your senses on a daily basis as a mindful meditation and observe how it can help you to become more constantly present.
In training what is better fast or slow movement..? Largely it is relative to your purpose and outcome, therefore neither is better, only dependent on what you want to achieve. For most goals however you can achieve the same result with either tempo.
For example for weight loss, training at a slower pace can be a great way to achieve your goals and build your fitness at a rate that is safer. Training at a slower pace is also better for building and maintaining correct movement patterns. It can also be more meditative and help you to focus.
So what are the benefits of a faster speed training?
Depending on your goals, faster speeds can help to exert excess energy or stress and boost cardio levels, it can also help to boost your reaction time.
However the two can and do crossover you can get benefits from both types of training and both will help you improve fitness and lose weight/maintain a healthy weight.
Most importantly is to always listen to your body and be in touch with the needs of your own body and mind, and as always of course, enjoy your training 🙂🙏💫
