To tell a story is one thing, but to have the reader understand is another. These stories are written in a variety of different styles, to appeal to all levels of readers, because what resonates to one, will not be as powerful to another person.

Once someone has an ‘a-ha’ moment they have more success to change and get results.

The style of these articles include – True Stories of ‘pain to recovery’ and matter of fact information (that’s collated from latest research) to health hacks in a step by step manner for nutrition, movement, sleep and stress.

The articles are provided to help educate people about the truth and separate these from the myths that are out there in our interwebs… to learn what ‘healthy’ really is, through intelligent nutrition, smart training/movement, important sleep hacks and always a ‘work-in-progress’ stress reducing protocol.

To be honest I try to write my blog on a regular basis, but ‘life’ gets in the way at times, so I post them whenever I can.

I live by what I preach and do not want to put pressure on myself to get blogs out everyday (or for me at least two a month). I deliver important information as soon as I can.

I hope you enjoy the stories and I’m always happy for you to connect with me with any questions you may have.
