Is Fear Holding You Back?

Last week I was on holidays with my family and we ended up at this amazing playground at Holkham Estate in Northfolk.

If you are ever in that neck of the words, check it out it is really cool.
At this playground they had a zip wire.

It was a huge wire set up from one platform with an improvised seat and the kids could zoom from one side to the other.

My daughter, Mia, look at this thing and was really keen to have a go as all of the other kids seemed to be having so much fun.

But she was really hesitant.

She was not too sure.

The thing that was holding her back...fear!

She was scared.

She was scared of falling off.

She was scared of not being able to do it.

But, with lots of encouragement, helping her on to the zip wire, holding on to her in the initial go, she did it.

And do you know what, she loved it!!

She was off. After every go she would run around to the back of the cue and waiting excitedly to go again, and again, and again.

And the favourite thing about the holiday...the zip wire!

She loved it.

But unless she got over her initial fear, she would never have gotten to that point.

It was only by concurring this fear, that she got to the pure enjoyment.

This is the same as starting any form of exercise.

The fear of starting always puts people off.

The fear of 'what if it is too hard?', 'what if I can't do it?', 'what will others say?', 'what if I fail?'.

It is this fear that stops people from even starting.

It is this fear that stops people getting to the good part. The enjoyment of moving better, looking better and feeling better about themselves.

So stop being fearful and start.

Btw, this is what the Yummy Tummies Blueprint can help you with.

It starts with baby steps and lots of gentle encouragement.

Because I know that, like the zip wire, once you get going you will love the experience.

And it all starts next week, click here to be one of the first on the waiting list.

Remember bravery is doing something which is scary to you, but doing it anyway.

Take care,

Are you Aware?

If you are not aware of something, then how can you change it?

Most clients come to me wanting to change. Whether that be wanting to change their fitness, change their posture or change their physical appearance in some way.

For change to take place you always need a clear picture of where you are currently at and where you want to get to. Personally, I think my job is simple. I just make people aware of where they are at, find out where they want to get to, then make a plan in order for them to get there.

In my opinion the most important part of that process is creating awareness. I help people become more aware of their body and their health. It is through this awareness that people can begin to make real and substantial change.

Let’s put this in perspective. Let’s say that someone wanted to change their posture. Even if they were to train every day for one hour at a time, that’s really only seven hours per week. If that same person then went to work and sat at their desk in a slumped over position for up to ten hours a day. That fifty hours of bad positioning compared to seven hours of good positioning. I wonder which would win.

But imagine if that same person was to be aware of their sitting position at work and was to really focus on changing their posture for most of those ten hours? Then you would start to see change take place.

It is the same with nutrition. Some people are not aware of just how much junk they are putting in their bodies. They might think they have something a little bit bad every now and then, but when they actually take the time to write down everything they put in their mouths….

If you want to change your nutrition do this simple thing today, keep a food diary. Some studies have shown that people who actually keep a food diary are 30% more likely to be successful with any weight loss programme. If this is one of your goals, try it. It will make a difference.

Awareness is quite a simple thing. But without it there can be no change.

Take the first step to change today, become aware.

Take care,
