Blind dates, Tinder or Bumble matches, however you meet your potential partner, it’s important that you plan a first date that keeps you safe. But labelling a date as ‘safe’ isn’t exactly going to get the spark going is it? Never have I been excited for a date because of the prospect of how safe it is. We want fun, chemistry, and a smidge of romance, but also the chance to make an escape if we feel like we need to, or if the date is just going so horrible you would rather stick pins in your eyes. It's ok, we’ve all been there. Jokes aside though, it is really important when you’re meeting someone new for the first time that you take some precautions – you are meeting a complete stranger after all.
Over the past year, as I’ve been on a personal development and health journey, I’ve noticed a set of rules (commandments, life mottos, whatever you want to call them) that successful people seem to be living by and that are, essentially, the foundation to their success. These rules can be applied to any aspect of your life if you want to achieve success; whatever shape success takes in your life: career, relationships, working out etc.
Too often we complicate things—adding activities into our day-to-day lives that aren’t actually sustainable. Sure, the first day or two is fine because you’re super motivated but I don’t think any of us are strangers to that one week motivation slump. You’re trying to maintain relationships, be sociable, look after your family, clean your house, go grocery shopping (we all know that’s a whole day gone), the list goes on and on. Sometimes, we just don’t have time for exercising. I get it, exercising won’t always be your highest priority, so here’s some other healthy habits you can add into your life that won’t take up too much time and will get you on a healthier path. And remember, health isn’t just about fitness, it’s about your relationships—with yourself and the people around you, your mental wellbeing and your lifestyle. You can be a healthier person without ever stepping foot in a gym.
Holy smokes, hot yoga is something else. Now, I may be a bit dramatic, but I nearly died—or pass out, but hey, I'm dramatic. I actually enjoyed it though, after my body got used to feeling like it was on fire..
