Set yourself up for success and achieve all your goals
Have you set yourself some big goals this year but are unsure how you are going to achieve your goals? Don’t worry, I’ve been there. I am SO excited to be finally bringing you my very own health and fitness podcast! One of my big goals for the last 3 years!
In this first episode I dive deep into small tips and habits you can implement to make your biggest goals a reality. While the podcast is mostly focused around health goals, you can absolutely use these tips to help you with other aspects of your life.I know how it feels to have goals for years but never actually achieving them, never mind putting steps in to starting but when I started implementing these tips into my goal setting, I started achieving my goals in a time period I was happy with.
Quitting negative self talk and improving your self worth
I’m definitely generalising here but I’d take a guess at saying you have at some point had some negative self-talk. We all have an inner critic which is vital to help us realise where in life we could have done better, helping us improve. So many of us though, allow that critical voice to enter our headspace far too often and it becomes more of an inner bully than an inner critic. In this episode we dive into some tools and techniques you can use to stop the inner critic from making your constant thought patterns into negative ones, especially when it comes to the ways we talk about our bodies. Tune in to uncover my top tips to start loving your body and start working with it, not against it.
Why negative self talk will lead you on a downward spiral in most areas of your life
Tips to improve your relationship with your body
Ways to overcome negative self talk in order to improve your life
Self care rituals I swear by
Today’s episode is all about self care and little rituals I love to have in place which help me fill up my cup, allowing me to be more present for those in my life. As women we tend to put our own needs to the bottom of the priority list which can lead to us feeling pretty run down and deflated. Hopefully implementing my tips will help you to feel your best self and show up happier for those around you.

There are only benefits to exercise so you’re taking amazing steps towards bettering all aspects of your physical and mental health.

Staying motivated, even when you don’t want to
Let’s be honest, we can’t stay motivated ALL THE TIME. Being consistent with workout routines takes some real commitment and sometimes we really just CBA. In this episode I give you my top tips for showing up for yourself on those days where you really just don’t feel like it. Personally I haven’t been feeling it at all this month, however I have stil been showing up and being as consistent as I can. The time is going to pass regardless so you have to ask yourself; what will you gain from being consistent with your workouts and what will you benefit from not.
