3 weeks!!

Clients, classes, creating programmes, setting up emails, holiday clothes shopping, packing, filming, accounts, marketing, photoshoot, Dad’s birthday celebrations, Tough Mudder training, Tough Mudder, bla bla blaaaaa….

Jeeeezo there’s ALOT to do before I go on holiday!!

Life can get pretty CRAZY sometimes.


How do YOU deal with it??

It’ soooo easy to grab whatever’s ‘on the go’, eat poorly, sleep less, become a stresshead, skip workouts and feel completely overwhelmed so by the time you actually go on holiday….you’re abit of a wreck.


Sound familiar??…


The best way (I’ve found) to deal with this is to make daily LISTS!!

I love a good list but the GREAT thing about a list is that you don’t have to think – you just need to get it done!

And how GOOD does it feel when you get to the end of that ‘to do’ list?!

STRESSING about stuff not only unnecessarily cranks up your FAT storage hormone cortisol but it actually doesn’t change ANYTHING.

All it does is steal your HAPPINESS and keeps you very busy doing sweet FA!

I understand it’s easier said than done not to get stressed but you can either be PRO-ACTIVE about your problems or WALLOW in them, I know which one I’d rather.


Here’s 10 Top Tips To Reduce Pre-holiday Stress:


1. Make time for a 10 min workout – you’ll feel AWESOME after and beachbody will thank you for it.

2. Clear your head with a walk at lunch time – even if it’s just 5 mins.

3. Delegate parts of your to-do list to others if possible.

4. Focus on what you’ve DONE – not still to do.

5. Plan quick, simple meals along with handy, healthy snacks and stock up your fridge / cupboards.

6. Drink plenty of water (aim for at least 2 litres per day).

7. No matter what set yourself a sensible bed time STICK to it.

8. Hug it out – it’s amazing how POWERFUL a hug can be.

9. Prioritize and make sure the most important things get done FIRST – don’t sweat the small stuff.

10. BREAATHE : )
