Welcome To The 5am Club

5am club

I want to talk to you about something that has changed my life.

I don’t say it lightly when I say that.

This has literally changed the way I think about everything in life.

The way I speak to people, my outlook on life, my mood and my productivity.

I have been getting up at 5am every day, 7 days per week since the 1st April.

It wasn’t planned that I start on the 1st April ; it just seemed to turn out that way.

Now I’m sure many of you reading this are thinking, ” how can getting up at 5am every day be beneficial in any way, shape or form?”, never mind change my life.

Allow me to explain… Some of you may have heard of Robin Sharma, but many of you won’t have.

Robin Sharma is the author of 15 books, a leadership expert and motivational speaker from Toronto.

He is considered as a bit of a “guru” within the personal development world.

21 Things To Change Your Life

21 Things To Change your life

21 Things To Change Your Life

We are back from the USA now…

We had an amazing time and I learnt loads of great stuff, too much to go into detail so I thought I would summarise in brief.

Here are 21 ideas, suggestions and invaluable snippets of information that may or may not enhance your life going forward.

Feel free to use the bits that make sense and discard the rest. If you want to know more about any individual point then please drop me an email, I’m always happy to help.

1) The American’s love their food and the portions are just ridiculous in size (I’m not complaining)

2) Fasting on the plane really does reduce jet-lag

3) Alarmingly, recent studies have tested the umbilical cord of unborn babies for toxins and discovered over 250 chemicals present, many of which are now banned. This means the mothers are passing down these chemicals from pollution, the environment and from our food and water supply.

4) I love climbing mountains :)

5) Only 1% of our children meet the RDA levels of nutrients in their diet. RDA means recommended daily allowance. Optimal levels are MUCH higher.

6) 1 glass of red wine per day can really benefit your health. Fish oil is even better for your health.

7) Feed your mind as well as your body. Personal development/reading is absolutely key here.

15-30min every day or more to really get ahead in life. Personal development will pay you back 30 x your investment over your lifetime.

8) People tend to think more about weight loss than disease prevention. FACT.

9) There is greatness inside EVERY ONE of you reading this newsletter. Don’t forget that.

10) Dream big. Then dream BIGGER. If people don’t laugh at your goal then it’s not big enough!

11) If you haven’t seen a Tony Robbins seminar before then I recommend him 100%.

12) Gut health/digestion is more important that you realise. 100’s of ailments like tiredness, bloating, lack of energy, restless sleep, poor motivation, crappy moods and much more are all linked with gut health and digestion.

You need digestive enzymes, probiotics and to masticate as much as possible :)

13) 10min of meditation per day can do wonders for your health, stress levels and mental well-being.

Check out the “headspace” app on iTunes.

14) Be very grateful for what you have. Many of us work hard to achieve more and that is fine but don’t forget what you have currently and be happy with that. Many will never have a fraction of what we have and millions all over the world don’t even have clean water, food and shoes to wear on their feet.

15) Call your Mum and Dad more often (calling mine today)

16) Try not to criticise anyone or talk behind their back.

17) Your health really is your greatest wealth. Clichéd but true.

18) I ate a cheesecake two nights ago in the “Cheesecake factory” that contained 1330 calories per slice.

19) Proximity is POWER. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting like-minded people and achieve even more in your life. You are the sum of the five people you hang around the most.

20) Write your goals out today. Set weekly, monthly, 6 monthly and yearly goals. You also need your 5 and 10 year goals. If you don’t, you will end up working for someone who has.

21) Try to do 30 mins of some form of exercise every day of you life. This will keep you young, fit, healthy and prevent many man made degenerative diseases that so many of us are dying from today.

Here is a bonus point, as I want to finish on a positive…

22) Be the happiest person you know. You have a choice every day to be happy or sad. YOU decide!

Have a great Wednesday and an amazing rest of the week.




The Secret To Eternal Life

The Secret To Eternal Life

How’s your week so far?

Making it count?

A load of you clicked on the link for the journal on Monday which actually surprised me but in a good way…

I wonder how many of you bought it or will buy it?

Taking action is the key right?

At the weekend, apart from a going for a wicked Chinese meal on Saturday night, I managed to get a sprint session in the park.

Many of you will know that I am a big fan of sprinting for so many reasons.

Check out this blog on sprints ====> here

But this bout of sprinting reminded me of a sprint session that took place last summer…

Check it out.

I got to the park at about 7.15am.

The sun was up and the grass was wet with dew. It was a lovely morning. There was no one to be seen apart from a lone jogger with a small dog trotting behind.

I think it was a Yorkshire terrier but I couldn’t be sure. That is largely irrelevant to what I want to tell you…

Out the corner of my eye, an old lady approached me.

She must have been in her 80’s.

She had a white velour-jogging suit on which made me smile, I have to be honest but it’s what she did next that prompted this newsletter.

She started doing step-ups on the curb, side bends and various other stretches.

I moved a little close to her, as I was fascinated.

It was just after 7am in the morning and here was the old lady out in the park getting it done.

As I moved closer I could see she was Chinese or Japanese possibly, and it was then she moved from the step ups into a series of arm and leg movements which I can only assume was “Tai Chi”

Please note that this is not Shoreditch park and this is not the oriental lady that I saw in a white velour jogging suit.

I carried on with my sprints for another 20 mins and she was still there practicing this discipline.

A lot can be learnt from this woman.

She was mid 80’s at least yet had the energy and youthful vigor of many 60 year olds.

The old adage ” use it or you lose it” sprang to mind.

Many people when they reach a certain age stop exercising and stop moving around and this is a BIG mistake.

Our bodies were designed to move.

We function best when we move.

The less we move, the faster we age and decay.

Our muscles atrophy, our joints seize up and our brainpower deteriorates.

We get old VERY quickly.

The point I am making is very simple.

You have to keep exercising and eating well if you want to live as long as possible.

Many people make the mistake of assuming that old people just naturally get old.

What I mean by this is that many of the conditions we see in the elderly are from poor lifestyle choices, not just because they have aged.

I see many people in their 60’s hunched over, hobbling with a crutch just waiting to expire.

If you believe current research, experts suggest that the human body can last as long as 100-120yrs.

This of course, depends on many things.

Exercise, nutrition, supplementation and genetics to a certain extent.

We hear about the odd person living until 120 years old and when you look at their life the same things ring true.

Lots of exercise, going to bed early and rising early, lots fresh air and clean, natural food.

I personally want to live forever but I’m quite sure that won’t happen :)

I am determined to stretch out my years by the study of good nutrition and exercise.

I want to live for as long as my genetics allow and I invite you to do the same.

Think about what you are doing to your body.

In the words of Nutritionist and anti-ageing specialist Dr Michael Colgan PhD…

“If you don’t look after your body, where you gonna live”

Until next time…
