Why your hairdresser is right…….

Standard

Have ever looked in a magazine, seen a pic of someone and thought to yourself:

He/she looks cool, I LOVE their hair…….I want that hairstyle……

You book your appointment and strut into the salon all ready & fired up for your new look, and after your discussing it, your hairdresser tells you……………

It’s not for you!

Gutted!

This is often because your professional stylist knows that you simply cannot reproduce the same look yourself.

It’s perhaps just not a manageable style for you to have to deal with on a daily basis.

So if you did go for this new style, you’d maybe look great for that day (with the help of your stylist) but what would you do when left to style/maintain it yourself?

>Would you end up in a worse position in terms of your lovely locks?

The same logic applies to your health & fitness goals:

I pretty confident I could get you to do A LOT more than you may currently be doing in the gym in terms of intensity, and you would definitely step out your comfort zone, however:

If you can’t consistently reproduce this yourself, what’s the point?

>Anyone can train hard once.

BUT:

>Nobody got in great shape by doing just one intense workout.

If the intensity cannot be matched/reproduced, I’d suggest you’d be better scaling it down to a more manageable level.

You need a find a level of intensity that challenges you but also allows you to build a foundation of progression.

Your hairdresser and I have your best interests in mind, and we are both thinking about your long term happiness and success.

If you need a hand in establishing a routine that you CAN stick to, give me a shout.

That’s all for today, until the next time,

Before you go to bed tonight, try this……………..

Standard

Facebook is a bit of a double edged sword isn’t it?

I mean, don’t get me wrong, its an amazing tool for keeping in touch with old friends & for sharing some valuable information, whilst having a bit of giggle at times…..

Plus, some of you maybe reading this via Facebook, so it can serve a purpose to spread some occasional positivity…

However, unfortunately, like most things, it’s often down to people and how they use it, am I right?

This is where things can get potentially negative, argumentative, bitchy, jealous & competitive.

I try to remain in the essence of Facebook and seek the positive, most of the time……

Anyway, my point today is that I came across a mindful exercise which I’m going to try out tonight before I go to sleep, proving that Facebook can offer some positivity:

All you have to do is simply write down 5 ‘wins’ you had today.

No matter how small, just 5 things that made you feel good.

That’s it.

Easy, right?

I’m doing this (and inviting you to also do so) to re-frame my day….

It’s so easy to get bogged down in all the negativity and worry of life…and we forget about the positives, we forget what we do have, we forget what we have got…..

We all do this, myself included.

So I invite you to take 5 minutes of your day, later on tonight, before bed, to re-evaluate your day…

What you thought was maybe a crappy day, may turn out different…if you can re-evaluate today and re-frame what it meant to you, maybe tomorrow will be that little bit easier?

Try it, let me know how you get on….

Until the next time,

Tristan ‘5 things’ Buttle

P.S: if you did this every day, that would be 150 wins/positives in a month

P.P.S – that’s also the equivalent of 1850 wins/positives a year.
