Why we’re not meant to be happy all the time

Ola my friends!

I hope you’ve had a joyful week!

This week’s video is a day-in-the-life kind of vlog, where after spending some fun time with my family I have a fibro flare-up and get into a bit of a funk. We chat about fibromyalgia, resiliency and what they mean to me, and why we’re not meant to be happy all the time because each emotion serves a vital purpose.

How I Choose My Goals VLOG // My Fibro Recovery Story

Ola my friends!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic week!

In this week’s vlog, you join Pete and I at our first circuit training session! For the longest time, I avoided intense work-outs because I feared they’d send me into a fibro flare-up. After working on my recovery for the past 3 years, I finally feel strong enough to take my fitness to the next level.

This week’s VLOG: Pete loses his wedding ring! & Addressing all 3 goals

Ola my friends!

How has your week been? Mine’s been busy and enjoyable and as we get to the end of it, I’m welcoming the warm sunshine and some relaxation!

In this week’s Vlog, we do shots – not those kind of shots! – anti-inflammatory shots, filled with turmeric, ginger, lemon… the stuff that your body will thank and reward you for!

After downing our shots, we head to Riviera together, to address goals #healthy, #plenty and #wealthy. And… Pete loses his wedding ring. Shall we forgive him or no? πŸ™‚

Spend the day with us as we work on reducing inflammation and creating togetherness.

My Goals for 2019 VLOG // My first action-step, celebration & 2 healthy recipes

I’ve never considered myself a super “fun” person. Growing up, I was mostly serious and I’ve always opted for an evening in with my books than for any kind of goofing around! And though there’s no harm in preferring books to tomfoolery, it sometimes results in me experiencing more boredom and loneliness than I’d like.

This year, I’ve promised myself that I’ll celebrate more. By this, I mean that I want to create opportunities for more fun and more playfulness to enter my life!

Set Yourself Up For Success: The Life-Changing Magic of Visualisation

Hey Life-Designer!

Have you heard about the basketball experiment that proved you can vastly improve your chances for success by visualising the results you want? No?! Well, a psychologist named Alan Richardson split a group of basketball players into 3 groups:

  • The first group practiced free-throws for 20 minutes a day.
  • The second group visualised themselves making successful free-throws everyday, but didn’t physically practice.
  • The third group didn’t practice or visualise – they did NADA!

Richardson found that the visualisation group VASTLY improved in their free-throwing ability, and were almost as good as the group who practiced daily!
