Procrastination & Motivation

Procrastination & Motivation

Putting off starting exercise and finding motivation to continue exercising are two problems that go hand in hand normally. Our mind will throw up a list of excuses why exercise can be skipped or not started. Sometimes these excuses come out as I haven’t got time, or I’m too tired…

Fear

Fear

Fear of failure, fear of being laughed at, fear of not being able to do it, fear of not being good enough, not confident enough. There are many reasons people use to not exercise. These are just some. Fear is a huge mind challenge.

I’m Too Tired!

I’m Too Tired!

I'm Too Tired! I'm Too Tired! I get it. Life is exhausting! Work, home, hobbies, social life, they all take their toll on how tired we feel. Add to that lack of sleep, cold bugs, aches and pains, the general stress that we encounter throughout the day and you could be...

I Don’t Have Time!

I Don’t Have Time!

This is a good one! In this day and age we all have multiple calls on our time. A combination of work, spouse, children, home chores, social activities all make demands on our time.

Inspiration & Fear

Inspiration & Fear

Many of us live our lives doing what we were brought up as children to do. Following the norm, doing what is expected of us as we grow up. You know the stuff…

The Southey Way

“Get a 6 pack in 6 weeks”
“Lose 2 stone in 2 weeks”
“Detox your body with this shake”

Arghhhhhh!!
I am so tired and frustrated of seeing these so called quick fixes and miracle products being advertised. And then picking up the pieces with discouraged disillusioned clients who think THEY have failed and not the products. It takes advantage of people’s weaknesses in order to make a quid or several hundred!

Here’s where I come from:

Looking after your health is number one priority. We have one body, one mind and one soul. Bugger it up and life is harder.

Buying in to quick fixes for mucho money can seem like a great idea but ask yourself these questions before you click the BUY button.

1. It it fact? Do the claims they make have scientific evidence based research behind them. Who did the research? Are there biases involved?

2. Are you sure you will complete the course/diet? What is involved to get the results they promise? Are you ready to make those commitments or are you buying into the idea instead of the actual?

3. What will happen once you finish the 6 weeks/2 weeks/7days? Will you default back to your previous behaviour and habits? Will you have increased your knowledge of how your body and mind works? What is your plan to keep the gains/losses you could make?

4. Is it sustainable? How will it work in your life? With your work and home life? How will celebrations/holidays, down and up times affect your results?

You owe it to yourself to ask these questions before buying any of these solutions. Find out what you are getting in to. Ask the questions and then decide.

Don’t just react. Make a conscious choice!

If in doubt, just give me a shout!

I’ve been very quiet on the SM front over summer. Much needed family time and some injury and illness have meant a step away. But I’m back and committing to living my real! First stop is sorting my nutrition out to help me fire on all cylinders both physically and mentally. Day one was awesome 😎
