I often get questions from my clients about fitness and physical activity; they get stressed out because they don’t have time to do all that fitness work that you are supposed to. At least if you listen to all the other people they feel there is a lot of “have to do” or “must do”, and they feel guilty because they don’t. Also they might not even like the fitness work. Doing things because you “have to” is not a good driving force.

It would become something you avoid for as long as possible, it becomes like a chore and it won’t benefit you. At this point you have to find ways that spark your interest and motivate you. Also if you understand what’s going on then it’s much easier to do things that you don’t really like because you feel it’s a bore but you can cope with it because you know it’s good for you. .

And they ask me if it’s even possible to lose weight without doing this specific type of dieting and I tell them, yes it is, but first we have to look at:

I asked my clients what is your biggest hurdle in your work life?

Most of them answered with exactly the same thing and that is that there is just so much to do!

This problem is most definitely in everyone’s top three hurdles.

Not only did they tell me that there was so much to do but also that there is so little time. They said “imagine if I had the right amount of tasks for the time that is given. That would be great life, but that’s not what it looks like.”

And when I heard that I have just wished I could be a magician and fix more time for people.

But as you know now that’s not possible, time is a fixed thing and we all have the same amount and we have to organize our life in the different ways instead.

However, there are other ways to get around this problem……

Three Tips to Get Enough Quality Sleep

Being a business leader means needing to be productive and being productive means that you need to make sure you’re getting enough sleep. I’m sure you’ve struggled in the past with getting a full night’s sleep. And even if you think you’re getting a full night’s sleep, your brain might still be switched on.

Time. Our most valuable resource. Something that ticks away day after day. But unlike money or materialistic items, we can’t buy more time.

If you think you’ve got a bad or unhealthy lifestyle, let me tell you that you’re not alone.

Not just right here in this moment, but winding the clocks back.

The other day I came across an 18th century article written by a medical doctor called Abraham Back. He was friends with the world famous Swedish Botanist; Carl Linnaeus, the guy who systematised the whole plant ecosystem. I’m sure you’ve read about him in school.

Anyway…
