My top 10 Healthy Habits that will change your world

Rolleston_1116_005.jpg

It’s all about me, when I realised this my world changed for the better.

Some call it being selfish but is it really? How the heck is looking after your own health first so that you can take care of others selfish?

And, when we do this it give other people the permission to do the same.

And the result of that?

A healthier community.

Damn straight!

I believe 100% that when we start take accountability for our own wellness, the wellness of our tribe, community improves and that has got to be a good thing.

Another thing I believe is that we make ‘life’ to hard for ourselves by over thinking and analysing. Trying to understand why all the time when sometimes we should just let go.

Seriously, just because you can’t see something does it mean it’s not there?

You can feel it, maybe even hear it, so why continue to discount it because your eyes do not physically see it.

I’ve taken accountability for my own wellness by simplifying my life, removing habits that hold me back and putting in place healthy habits.  Here are a few healthy habits I would like to share with you.

  1. Put yourself first (you didn’t think you would get away with not doing this did you?) it’s easier than you think.  Start off with small steps like making sure you have breakfast first before you do anything else for anyone else. and before you complain about time, I have four kids! I know all about time. No more excuses, you just have to do it!
  2. Practice courage – try stretching your com for zone each day by doing something small.  It helps to build confidence.
  3. Get connected – with things, people, places that light you up.
  4. Have an attitude of gratitude. I used to think the whole gratitude thing was a waste of time but it does help when you have those blah days.  It shows you all the greatness that surrounds you and actually helps to clear out negative space in your head.
  5. Have some goals! If you don’t know where you are going how on earth are you going to get there? This is probably the biggest key in making sure you live life with intent and not getting caught up bobbing along on the tides of life like a piece of driftwood.
  6. Create some mantra’s – these are my favourite things to do and I use them religiously in my training and day-to-day life.  I’ve gone as far as printing them out on a poster and putting next to my bed, to doing printed tees!
  7. Breathe – focus in on your breath, is it fast or slow? Most often than not when you are a wee bit stressed or tensed your breathing will be rapid. Bring yourself back into your body with some nice deep slow breathes all the way in and all the way out.
  8. Refuel – when we start to feel blah it is sometimes because we are burning the candle at both ends and not taking time to refuel. You either need to eat, or hydrate but make sure it is once healthy food.  Don’t wait till you are super tired and reach for the sugary foods, this will only make you feel worse.
  9. Shred the mind chatter – we have become to concerned with thinking and shifted away from all our other senses and parts that make us a whole. We are more than just our minds. Practice trying to catch yourself ‘thinking’ and what you are saying in your mind.  Listen for the language that is being used. And the emotions it starts to bring up for you.  Being aware of your mind chatter is an incredible strength to have and brine you a step closer to what it is you are inevitable searching for in life.  e.g. when you are training and you are starting to tire, your mind starts to wander, or say things like “I can’t do this” listen, watch and then decide if you will listen, or lean back and let it go. You will be surprised at what starts to happen for you with this practice.
  10. Journal – this healthy habit has really helped change my life for the better. And its intentional , not a dear diary style like when you were a kid. I use a journal in business and also in my training. It helps me to process my thoughts and make space in my head. It also helps me to ensure I stay in the flow with my intuition meaning I stick to what works for me first.

Incase you have forgotten what I do;

I am your PT for the mind! I believe when you take accountability for your own wellness it improves the wellness of the whole community. I help you to actually ‘do’ the do by shredding any habits that hold you back and replacing them with good habits and routines.

At the mercy of the elements – a lesson in courage

image

In my element, nek minnit

That’s me in the rudderless canoe, bright PFD in front.

I chose to do rudderless knowing what I was in for.

32km coast run of side wind, with a small 1m swell running in to the beach.

I never entered to be competitive.

I accepted it would be a challenge with myself more than anything, and that’s what I was up for.

I’m still in recovery from my achilies tendon rupture and one year back from having my baby.

My start was fabulous and I made good ground very quickly, darting in out of the rocks and making the most of the backwash, reverb of rocks.

Once I hit the open water and the side wind it was on!

I snuck in close to the beach to try and get on any bumps I could knowing that if I followed the pack out wide I’d get stuck in the wind.

About half way along (15kms) I got cramp in my injured foot, which transferred right up my leg to my hip.

I figured I had come this far and I wasn’t about to give up.

There were moments of OMG what the heck am I doing,

To pep talks of “make every stroke count” when I could actually get a stroke in.

I looked to my left where all the ruddered canoes had gone and figured they would be having it tough too (those who are new to surfing) in these conditions so carry on.

I managed to find some relief in moments of runs where I was able to connect a few glides here and there until I got pushed in to the beach.

Also got escorted by a few friendly blokes in grey suits which made me ensure I stayed upright!

Finally I saw the finish line about 5km out and I tell you it felt like the longest blimmin 5kms ever!

I came in and felt not too bad. Like I had plenty more to give.

Although it was tough, mentally I enjoyed the learning I got from it and am stoked at my mental toughness to persevere and hold focus.
I realised that I had a choice, to moan about the conditions and canoe in my head, or get on with it and make every stroke count (as much as possible).

I now head forward with even more determination, confidence and courage.

If there is a situation you have hit and are struggling with, you need have a choice.

Make the decision and just do it! Think about it too long and you will always talk yourself out of it, trust me, I know.
