Why Consistency Works

We can of course change our habits an behaviours, initially this requires an intently act. For example, let’s say you want to get fitter. You buy a pair of running shoes and you go out for a run.

So this is where consistency comes in, if you then continue to run three times each week, running becomes a part of your routine, it becomes a habit.

Confidence & Self Love.

Last week I was invited by Urban Decay cosmetics to deliver a talk about confidence & self love. Here’s what I had to say… CONFIDENCE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE BORN WITH OR WITHOUT. I believe that confidence is not something that you are born with or with out. It is not a personality trait. Often people mistake the behaviours of outgoing people, it’s easy to assume the if someone is extroverted then they must be confident. However this is not the case. In fact, you can be either an extroverted person or an introverted person, but you can still be confident in yourself, your own abilities and your unique talents.

My Travel Checklist

Whether I’m going away for one night or one week, I have a travel checklist at the back of my notebook that I always use. Life’s busy and often I don’t have a lot of time to pack, so having this list already written out, makes it mega easy. I’m currently sitting on the Eurostar train on my way home from Paris. I was only there for one night and we had a busy schedule but of course I still had to get out for a run this morning. Space saving tips for your fit kit – Even if I’m only going for one or two days, I always pack my trainers. I roll up a sports bra and put it into one of my trainers, I then roll up my shorts and put them in the other shoe.
