I’ll be the first to put my hand up for that one, but here’s what I know.

A resolution means to RESOLVE something – to make a change for the better.

And unless you’re really vested in that change, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll go back to what you know is comfortable (which is definitely not the realm in which lasting change occurs).

Most people have no idea that their gut is their “second brain”.

It’s often referred to this way, because besides the brain itself – your gut really is the main organ that dictates your health and quality of life.

A healthy gut is one of the true secrets to your longevity and avoiding dis-ease. And yet, it’s often the most overlooked.

4 Lasting Secrets To Make Your Body Burn Fat

Man on couch grabbing his fat and wondering how to lose it

Over the years in running our ‘self care’ events with Cowboy Don, I’ve met many people who really struggle to keep their body weight down – at least to a level that they feel comfortable with.

There’s no doubt that biochemically things change as we get older, but I also think as time goes on, it’s easy to find more reasons to physically DO LESS…and this definitely compounds the problem.

There’s a steady stream of recent studies that show that people who stay active into their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, generally keep their metabolism strong, slow down the ageing process and help to prevent their bodies from piling on the pounds!

That part is not really rocket science…but beyond that, there are some powerful fundamentals that are valuable if you want to train your body to use FAT as fuel (rather than glucose, which is what most people spend their lives running their bodies on).

Keys To Keeping Fit As You Age

They say there’s only two things certain in life – Death and Taxes.

And I’m going to throw in another one here: AGEING.

It’s an unavoidable fact of life that we all age.

But I like to think of Age as just a number that symbolises our ‘experience’ rather than a reason to stop living life to the full.

For me, it’s all about perspective.

3 Ways to Overcome Self Doubt


The game of life is a journey that throws up inevitable challenges.

Our relationships, career, finances and health are all significant aspects that at various times can test our emotional self-worth.

Sometimes when things don’t go to plan, we arrive at forks in the road where we question our place in the world and/or our ability to shape a happy, positive future for ourselves.

I know, it’s happened to me at different stages where I’ve blamed myself for certain outcomes and doubted my ability to get through the challenge and to move on feeling empowered.

But over time, I’ve learned that overcoming these situations mostly comes down to a healthy mindset, positive self-talk and perspective i.e. my willingness to look for the ‘silver lining’ in every situation.

5 Ways To Boost Your Emotional Fitness

Emotional Fitness

The fast pace of modern day life can weigh you down if you don’t find ways to stay emotionally fit.

I know from first-hand experience, that finding the right balance between business, social, family and personal life can be tough if you don’t prioritise what truly matters and learn to master your emotions.

In my life, I’ve learned that things rarely go according to plan.

That’s why I believe resilience is one of the most powerful qualities we can develop. And why learning to embrace the good and the bad and living in a joyful state no matter what the circumstances is a ‘skill’ worth mastering.

It’s also so important to find happiness in the little things – like the smile on your kid’s face, the country we live in, the music you listen to and didn’t write, the internet you use but didn’t create, the sand on your feet etc.

These conscious little perspectives can be really powerful when you bring them to the fore of your mind regularly.

For what it’s worth to you, I’d like to share with you my 5 tips for staying emotionally fit that help me every day:
