Goals Are So Last Century. Try This Instead.

I read a blog this week that really got me thinking. This one, by James Clear. Seems like a pretty cool idea, I thought. Because who does that? Who takes the time to step out of their life for a couple of hours, look at their values and what’s really important to them, and rate […]

You Can’t Build A House – Or A Human – Out Of Gingerbread

Tis soon to be the season to be jolly. In other words, tis soon to be the season of Quality Street, Miniature Heroes and drinking alcohol earlier in the day than is seemly. For me personally, my standard rule of “cake is not a breakfast food” gets summarily broken. At Christmas, everything is a breakfast […]

The Stepping Stone Method Of Health Improvement (infographic)

Do you usually take an All or Nothing approach to getting healthier, trying to improve everything all at once and giving up when you don’t succeed? This is for you. If you’re viewing this on a mobile, chances are you’re seeing a squashed up image you can’t make heads nor tails of. If that’s the […]

That’s The Least I Expect From Me

When I used to work in Local Government (yes, I did – for years. I know. I can barely believe it either), I once worked on a project to set some minimum standards for…erm…something.  Working with Community Safety Partnerships I think.  It was kind of dull, so I’ve clearly wiped it out of my memory […]

What Could You Live With?

We all know the effects of “bad” food.  I’m not talking about the gradual ones, gaining weight or ill health.  I mean the immediate ones – the indigestion, wind, bloating, feeling sick, headaches etc.  The ones that tell us that even though eating 3 creme eggs in a row might seem like a great idea, […]

The Most Important Thing You’re (Probably) Not Doing.

You work hard. I know you do. You have a lot going on; a lot of pressure on your shoulders. Work is busy, life is busy, you’re needed. You’re valued for what you bring to the world and as such, you’re in demand. Maybe you train hard too. You put pressure on yourself to do […]

Life – A Huge, Inconvenient Opportunity To Practice

When we’re working on something that’s challenging and takes a lot of mental and physical energy – like body change – we can find ourselves wishing that we didn’t have to do everything else as well – that the washing would do itself, the kids would take care of themselves, work would be cancelled for […]

Is Willpower Bulls**t?

It gets a bad rap, willpower. A lot of people think it’s rubbish, but I disagree. The only reason why it comes over as rubbish is because we put the whole of our efforts to lose weight and get fit on its shoulders alone. Let’s get one thing straight. Willpower is self control and self […]

You Can’t Have Willpower Without Self-Trust

If you have ears, then I’m pretty sure that you’ll have heard about the Marshmallow kids. The experiment that was done in the 1960s to study self control, using a bunch of preschoolers and the choice of either one marshmallow now, or two marshmallows following an unchaperoned wait. You know the one? Very much like […]

The Real Reason You Eat Chocolate

I gave a speech yesterday and one of the lines that most sticks out in my mind is: “Never take chocolate away from a stressed out adult. They might bite you.” It was a bit of a throwaway line that jumped into my mind when talking about the “see-food” diet – you know the one; […]
