8 Important Life Lessons

1. You only have this moment so live in the “now”.

2. Life is over quickly so fight for what matters – your values and beliefs … hopes and dreams … and those you love.

3. If you make the sacrifice, you will reap the benefits.

4. Procrastination keeps you tied to yesterday. For what you do today will determine your tomorrow.

5. See failure as lesson, and a bridge to success. We all fail at times – it’s the way we grow and learn.

6. The most important relationship you have in this the life is the relationship that you have with yourself. So value, affirm and believe in yourself.

7. What we do – not what we say – reveals our true character.

8. Remember to be kind for everyone is fighting a hard battle.

6 Steps in Learning to Love Yourself

1. See the good in your past. There will always be things that we wish had never happened; there will always be bad memories and things that we regret. But they are part of who you are – so accept that they have happened and celebrate the person they’ve allowed you to become.

2. Invest time in the things that bring you happiness. It’s important to identify the things that you enjoy, and that make you come alive, and are all a part of “you”. Spending time on those things will help to raise your self-esteem, as you’re valuing yourself when you pursue happiness.

3. Forgive yourself for your mistakes. We all make mistakes - and when we think of them we cringe. But that doesn’t make you any worse than other people. Just try and learn what you can, and then move on with your life.

4. Stop criticising yourself. So often we’re really our own worst enemy. We look for our flaws, and we put ourselves down – instead of being understanding of our own limitations. It’s time to change that behaviour – so start loving yourself.

5. Listen to your instincts and intuitions. If you want to love yourself, you must listen to yourself. Pay attention to those instincts and your instant gut reaction – and trust that you are right when you hear that inner voice.

6. Appreciate your life. Of course there are things that you wish that you could change. But some things are good, and are worth appreciating. So, focus on, appreciate, and make lots of your strengths.

Hi I was squatting and I missed the hook for the bar and fell back with the weights. Any ideas for gentle workouts while I'm recovering?

Shit, hope you will get better soon!

My advice would be to stop exercises that focus a lot on your lower back, such as: deadlift, squats, hyperextension..

Come back progressively with light weights and I’m sure everything will be all right.
