Thanks to Tom Metcalfe for making a donation to the push up challenge last night.
We’ve completed another week. Moving onto 24 push ups a day next week.
Raising awareness for PTSD and the Royal Marines who are suffering so they can get the counselling they need https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/intufitdad
HEALTH IS WEALTH
We all need to consciously build in time to rest. It is a scientific fact that the human brain and body can only take so much activity without deteriorating. Far too many people are overworked and stressed out, literally teetering on the brink of burnout.
It’s just not worth it. Don’t spend all your health gaining wealth only to have to spend all your wealth trying to regain your health.
Stress is hard on the body and the mind. Rest is absolutely essential to productivity. You need at least one day off each week to recuperate before tackling a busy new work week.
After resting, you can relax with your family playing “The Bible Game: Saints & Sinners!” 😜
Have fun and equip yourself with the word at the same time!
The Bible Game is available at leading stores including:

Too busy? Maybe the real question is not the reason behind our choice or no choice to be busy, perhaps we only need to remember there is more to life than being busy. And so business can be away to escape sad realization or away to feel important or away to escape unwanted reality. Busyness can be a defensive mechanism. What is behind this mask?
DON'T YOU KNOW HOW BUSY & IMPORTANT I AM. Song text-Tom Rosenthal
'I am enough.
I am full of sparkle and compassion.
I genuinely want to make the world a better place.
I love hard.
I practice kindness.
I'm not afraid of the truth.
I am loyal, adventurous, supportive and surprising.
I make mistakes but I own them and learn from them.
I am a woman.
I am enough'
- Molly Mahar ❤️

The @myndologie team will be back in Bali at the end of October! One of our favourite things to do is immerse ourselves in the healthy lifestyle that this paradise has to offer. One thing we’ll have to do is visit @kyndcommunity’s brand new home in Seminyak 🌸 #myndologie#itstimetobekynd#selflove
I have gotten very used to the smell of weed. Not intentionally though. It's just everywhere around me. There's a hotel right next to my house and on a very typical day, you could get high from the smell alone.
When I was still in YABATECH, between the hours of 5-6pm, there was a particular part of the Sports Complex where some guys would sit and "chew on the stuff". They would talk and laugh loudly, whistle at passing babes and if you came really close to them, you'd see how red and "unavailable" their eyes were. I always wondered actually, I still do; it doesn't even smell nice. What could it taste like to make people get so attached to it?
But I know how addictions are. I used to have a few of my own.
A friend of mine was sharing the story of a late friend of his who overdosed on Tramadol. He was standing in front of the Liberal Studies department of the college when he slumped and died. The autopsy said he died of a drug overdose.
See, I see some of these brothers and sisters of mine who have let themselves go to this poison that is called Drug Abuse, and I feel so sad and sorry for them. They look genuinely confused and helpless (if this offends anybody, I'm sorry. But some things need to be said). I feel sorry and I want to help them.
Massive shoutout to @davidjonesdavid and @cohmilillian for this one.
If I could describe this with two words, it'd be: brilliant and empathetic.
I have come across or heard of many people who have survived or are undergoing a psychiatric disorder (major affecting, minor affecting, bipolar, anxiety disorders etc.). I hardly understood how grave these issues are or how much attention such people require untill somebody from a close family developed such symptoms. It's not just the person who suffers (whose sufferings are of course beyond words) but the family under goes so much pain, they see the person suffering but are unable to help or to find out why the person is behaving a particular way and can do nothing but to wait helplessly to wait for the medicines or psychotherapy to work. The worst thing about such symptoms is that they develop only after consuming all your strength and a person who you thought was very strong all of a sudden. That's because when you saw the person's strength from outside the person's emotions we're already at war with him.
Everyone these days has stress about one thing or the other. We never know what a person is going through, so we should (at least try to be) polite to everyone around, possibility is that you are the only one who can bring a smile on that person's face or who has done so in days.
Be a reason in, what ever ways you can, for happiness of everyone around. And do not ignore if you see symptoms of stress or anxiety or any such thing in people you love, because the first thing that can save them is your love and counselling.
Named after the Lord #hunam , when took he giant leap to reach the Lord Ram in Lanka from India - shows his love and devotion towards Lord Ram - Don't hesitate to take such gaint leaps (not literally) for the people you love.
Views like this are one of the reasons I love my walking commute to the office 🌊I can also get in my daily 10,000 steps & clear my head while topping up my vitamin D - that’s some beneficial multitasking 🙌🏼🚶🏼♀️☀️
