Hello again. We are now in a new month and the weather is somewhat warmer. I'm not sure how many of you are still following your New Years Resolutions. The new year is always that time where we look forward to change and then somewhere towards the end of January the joy goes out of that decision. One of the main things people focus on is to start to exercise and to get in shape. But this decision is often short lived.
I exercise regularly. It's a coping mechanism that has supported me physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally throughout my life. Especially when life gets challenging or it simply balances me out and helps me maintain and manage life.
I do a variety of exercises from running, to light weights and Yoga. Here is a link to some of the benefits of exercise:
So on that note, I would like to share a link with you about Yoga. I started Yoga about four years ago and sometimes it has some of the most challenging movements, however the benefits are a discipline of the mind and the body - a wonderful two in one process. It's a gentle way to get the body into shape, to stretch, to gain flexibility and to burn fat (that's if you do the HIIT Yoga which is a faster moving type of Yoga.) The benefits are physiological as well and it's incredible for ones brain.
I've often wondered why we don't look after our bodies as best as we can. I have a tendency to push through at times and not rest enough - that's my achilles - knowing when to stop and relax. However, I am mindful that my body is a gift and as such I try to eat well, exercise, meditate, pray and go for a sauna as much as possible.
On that note I'd like to recommend the below program, where you can achieve the most amazing results and with a guided tutor. Many times there are things we can do to support our health and well-being, I would encourage you to find what works for you. Nothing in life comes easy, but at the end, everything is worth it.
On that note, I'm wishing you a Happy March and hope the sunshine brings more joy and focus into your life.

Ken Hermes British barber who lost his Dad to suicide is now saving lives one cut at a time
Then a very poignant interview with Nick about men's mental health and the importance of creating a space for men to talk. Following comments from the Duke of Cambridge that there is still "a long way to go" on mental health in the UK, I wanted to introduce you to Ken Hermes (pictured below), an inspirational British barber who actually met Prince William in London on Thursday after becoming an official ambassador for the Lions Barber Collective mental health charity.
Ken, from Essex, lost his dad to suicide ten years ago and now wants to use his newly found job as a barber to help save lives and get more men to open up and talk about their personal issues. The latest figures show that suicide is still the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.

Wishing you all a very pleasant weekend and may you continue to stand and walk in your truth.
Blessings to all
