Thoughts on… Part II: Fitness for Life, Busyness and Sticking with It

So you started working out and might feel like you just don’t have time for it in your busy schedule. The truth is that most of the times when starting a new habit something else might have to give in order to fit something else in. We as human beings have a habit of cramming our life’s full of “stuff” and usually something has to give. And it won’t necessarily be easy to give up.

Align Your Goals with Your Values

It’s crucial to base your fitness goals in the values that mean something to you. Finding your “why” is important when setting up goals but it is as important (if not more importarter – I can say that, it’s my blog) to discover or revisit your values before just putting empty words on a piece of paper. When you base your goals on what the society, your family, your friends, co-workers or SpongeBob (imagine walking around wearing square pants because he said…

Bedtime Ritual – Better Sleep Better EVERYTHING (Step by Step Guide)

In the past I’ve written about the importance of having a morning routine to set you up for the day ahead. Think of yourself as an athlete going to a big match, instead that your match is the big business meeting that’ll happen at 10.30am.

Thoughts on Habits, Road and The Destination

Thoughts on Habits, Road and The Destination

It’s a no secret that I like to emphasize clients to work on a one habit at a time to eventually get them to their goals. Sometimes the habit might seem trivial but it’s all about focusing on each step and building a list of successful habits overtime that will align with where you want to get to. It’s all about knowing your destination and adjusting the road as you travel to get there.

Get Better Results by Focusing on the Positive

Get Better Results by Focusing on the Positive

  It’s a funny little thing, being positive. People with positive attitude have the best outlook on life no matter what the situation they’re in. We all know some of these people. I can think of one right know and I can’t think of a single moment I’ve seen them upset, always smile on their face. I like to think myself as some-what positive but I wish I could be like them. However, it must be the Finnish in me that stops me from achieving…
