Fuel

Fuel.

Put the wrong fuel in your car and it’s not going to work.

We know this and we are careful not to do it as we know the costs of repair are high and we risk permanently damaging the car…

Yet every day, we put the wrong fuel in our –

Mind and Body

Everyday (Excluding you health nuts of course)

WE feed our brains advertisements, toxic news, gossip, negativity (Most likely from the news)

We feed our bodies poison and junk

And we wonder why we are run down and stressed…

The cost of getting your car fixed is one thing…

The cost of fueling your body is far far more expensive.

Fuel Up Properly.

Your head is not an island

Your head is not an island

Have you ever just thought ‘my head is fucked’

Like thoughts all over the place, stressing for no reason and just being pure negative

Then you start thinking what the hell is wrong with me, why am I like this.

You start blaming the fact that you have a negative mindset and that your head is fucked.

But you fail to notice when your Blaming your head the way your lifestyle has been lately

You’ve not been eating properly, you stopped exercising and your not even walking as much,

You’ve been stressed at work, your not getting meaningful connections out of your relationships because your too distracted

All this adds up

Your head is not an island, everything you do has an effect on how you think and feel, the things you do internally and externally

Your not broken and your head is not fucked everything you do is connected.

Take a step back, have a think about all the things that can be causing these feelings and make a plan to get back to reality

We’re not the same

On a world map Greenland and Africa look the same,

But in reality Africa is 14x bigger than Greenland…

From a far we look very similar to other people, but reality is that we’re all very very different.

We all have different skills, personalities, ambitions, problems

We’re all different but a common trend is people following trends trying to look, be, do the same as others

But the world doesn’t need you to be like everyone else

In needs you to be different

It needs you to be you

Embrace your differences, be unique where you can, if you have a unique skill then work on it

Just stop trying to be the same

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Ok this isn’t entirely true, if you go to Rome you’ll see ancient history blended into modern-day living and it makes one beautiful city (I think I’ve never been) Old and new clearly can live together there.

However…

When it comes to me and you

Old cannot live with the New.

The old way of doing things and a new way of thinking that is.

You want to achieve that big goal. That requires a new way of thinking.

But thinking alone can’t change anything…

So you have to change the way you do things too,

You can’t want to lose weight, but still, do the things that made you gain the weight in the first place.

You can’t get rich by doing the stuff that got you broke…

Do you want change?

The old way has to be evicted.

Take A Walk

We ought to take outdoor walks, to refresh and raise our spirits by deep breathing in the open air. – Seneca

If there is one solution for many things…

It’s walking, The same was true for the philosophers 2000 years ago (Like Seneca) as it is today…

When we’re stressed, overwhelmed – take a walk.

Stuck on a problem – Go for a walk

Want some space and time to think – Go for a walk

Want to be active…take a walk…

Fancy a walk… go for a walk

In our busy day to day lives, walking gives the time to think, get some open air, away from all the noise, generate new thoughts and relax.

We don’t often get that in our office blocks and busy cities.

Turn your phone off &

Take a walk
