I will happily debate this every minute of every day –
If your health and fitness routine is making your career suffer – you’re doing it wrong.
Be creative – it doesn’t need to be at the gym and yes it can be cumulative. A 5 minute stretching break from the computer, 20 squats at the kitchen bench, taking the stairs to work or going on a meandering stroll on your lunch break.
I will challenge anybody with a real life demonstration on how 2 x 1 hours a week of meal prep that creates eating healthy food in well balanced proportions actually MAKES you more time by improving energy levels, clarity of mind and cutting down wasting time going to line up and buy food (not to mention the time it took to make that money in the first place)
Nourish your starving body, stoke your sluggish metabolism, heal your leaky gut and enjoy the benefits of a clean vessel, efficient digestive system and a level of health that radiates from the inside out.
Unplug from the myopic cyber cubicle, grab a dose of fresh air and vitamin D and notice the incredible stress relief you can experience right at the core of your cell vitality.
Eating fast mindlessly is the recipe for over eating and poor digestion, if you’re like me and you just LOVE food – take the time to savour every morsel and allow your body time to recognise it has actually eaten. You’ll notice your portion sizes correct themselves naturally.
If you invest time, effort and care into these habits, not only your career, but your entire life will reach a brand new level of success that you had never dreamed possible.
Nurturing the connection between your head, heart and gut is the key to being more productive, having more energy, more clarity of mind, loving more passionately and joyfully and enjoying every facet of your life.
My career suffers if I am using time investing in my health and fitness as a means to escape my career or to somehow punish myself because I see myself as ‘SHOULD’ being able to fit it all in. Plus if I pursue health and fitness activities such as HIIT, running, bootcamps and crossfit style workouts that are not right for me but I do them as a way to punish myself no one is gonna benefit from this.
However, if I am investing time into my health and fitness for aligned reasons and in the best ways for my body (for me yoga, swimming and weight training vs. HIIT, running, bootcamps, crossfit style workouts) then everything benefits because in order to do this I do it out of love for myself and because I genuinely enjoy it and don’t see it as a means to punish myself.
Hear hear Rachel : Love your work!
After suffering a fairly serious breakdown I was unable to cope with life in general. My body felt broke, old and frail – I didn’t just feel middle aged, I felt half dead. I hadn’t realised that my body was self destructing and I was doing it to myself, working long hours, too much alcohol, lots of bad food and absolutely no exercise.
After six months of working with Bianca, I no longer need my blood pressure medication, anti depressants and my cholesterol is in a safe zone. I have lost 2 dress sizes and more than 26 kilos. I now have a life outside of our business and can see a happy, healthy future for our family. I hope the person I became never comes back as I like this girl so much better.
I had heard of Bianca through some magazines – it was an investment but I had tried and failed so many times but in six short months, 20 kilos melted off me and it had a massive and unexpected effect on our styling business. While working with Bianca we secured a national gig, increased our prices to a level we previously thought no one would pay, AND we were booked out weeks in advance.
The majority of this 20 kilo weight loss has only been 5% diet and exercise, the rest has been an emotional journey. Bianca confronted me and called me on my BS and challenged some of my most deeply help beliefs about who I am. And the results are undeniable. I haven’t completely quit drinking, I still get to eat chocolate, I’ve had the best year in my business EVER – and perhaps the most important thing is how differently I react to things emotionally.
Who knew that taking it slowly and being kind to yourself could get you the results that yelling at yourself couldn’t.
Before working with Bianca I was super stressed and I thought it was too hard and I didn’t have the time to be slim AND successful. But I was surprised at how easy it was to implement Bianca’s system – I haven’t counted calories and I still pig out on foods I love. It’s been no coincidence to me that as a result of the new clarity of mind I’ve actually doubled my business at the same time I’ve made these changes to my body.
