How would we live life differently if we could hear life ticking by?
If the passing of your life was measured by the ticking of a clock hanging from your waistband and you could hear it what would you do differently? Hmm my wonderful week-end of basketball has finished and I sit here wondering how would I behave moment by moment if I could audibly hear the moments slipping relentlessly by.
Today I have a bullet-proof coffee. Let’s have a chat.
In my 51 years and my 34 years involved in fitness, these are my top keys not only to fitness but being fit for life.
Prepare your food yourself – enjoy the experience
Do push ups daily
Keep your hips open, mobile, and stable
Encourage and maintain a long, healthy mobile spine
Make your fitness sustainable

I decided… after thought to do one more in the series so now there are six in the series. I just felt there was more to say….Having balance is always about being authentic to your true self and that needs to be said.
My friends establish and be who you are against the mainstream of what others think you are or what they want you to be.
Sometimes it is just about being happy in the topsy-turvy of life. Go and pour yourself a cup of tea and lets chat.

Part 4 of Five How to find balance in the mayhem – Union of mind body spirit
Mind body and soul; balance these three helps you ensure happiness
Home work notes:
Do you get to that point sometimes when you wonder what is the point? What is the point of even trying to relax when life can seem so hectic? The point is that every moment we are in the moment is a moment of awareness and an authentic moment of life.
What is the connection between your physical, mindful and spiritual self? Discuss
Do you currently have balance between these areas in your life? Discuss

What do you do each day to affirm each part of yourself; your physical, your mindful and your spiritual self?
Brainstorm 3 actions that you do each day to honor each part of yourself

What is one small thing you could change today to bring more balance to your life?
Stay tuned for the final episode in this five day course tomorrow 🙂
Today we explore the relationship between choice and stress. The more we want, wish, and desire the less we feel balance. Now where is my cup of tea….
Barry Schwartz in his book The Paradox of Choice.
Increased choice can bring us sadness because choice often brings regret, remorse, resentment, self-blame and the possibility of missing possible opportunities. Increased choice also increases desire, wanting searching and longing.
What is choice?
How does having choice affect your life?
What does choice mean to you?
What areas of your life feel cluttered due to choice?
Do you think that having choices add to meaning in your life?
What are some areas of your selections you can simplify?
Do you find yourself using words such as wish, should, and want?
Do these terms help you think happy thoughts?
How does a state of wishing bring you balance or more importantly happiness?
What does desire mean to you?
