Is it really that hard to wake up early?

I like waking up early because it gives me a real boost knowing that I can accomplish my objectives whilst the rest of the world is still sleeping.

I know it’s not easy getting out of bed first thing in the morning, especially when it’s still cold and dark outside. So here’s two really simple things that you can do to combat morning fatigue and have more energy each day.

End of Day 2: Introduction to Life Coaching

My 2 day ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ with The Coaching Academy is now all done and I literally feel like my mind has opened up to a brand new way of thinking, living and being.

The Coaching Academy

The day was split into two parts. During the first half of the day we looked at personal beliefs and what effect they have on our behaviour. In general, beliefs can be categorised in two ways: they either prevent from taking action or they empower us to take action. Most astonishingly, for many of the beliefs that we hold, we aren’t even aware that we have them as they are so deep-rooted and ingrained in us; in short, they are subconscious beliefs that have never (or rarely) been challenged during our lifetime.

End of day 1: Introduction to Life Coaching

Simply put, today was absolutely amazing. I finished Day 1 of my ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ and I feel extremely inspired and super, super excited for the future.

The seminar was run by The Coaching Academy who offer various programmes to train people to become life coaches within a specific field e.g. coaching for the youth, small business coaching or coaching within the corporate world.

I didn’t have many expectations prior to today. I came to the seminar with an open mind, hoping to gain some new techniques that could facilitate my own personal development and boost my motivation; and I definitely wasn’t expecting the day to be half as engaging or inspiring as it was.

‘Crush it: Why Now Is The Time To Cash In On Your Passion’ by Gary Vaynerchuk

I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Crush It’, which only took me a matter of hours, because the style is very honest, engaging and to the point.

Gary Vaynerchuk is a social media entrepreneur, wine connoisseur and CEO based in the USA. He has successfully utilised various social media platforms to promote his business Wine Library, eventually becoming a sought-after expert on entrepreneurship and social media marketing. He’s also established himself as a great businessman and investor, all the while continuing to grow his enormous online following.

Living the dream

I had ordered about 20+ prospectuses from different UK universities to find a degree course that was right for me. I was 17 years old and in my last year of school. I thought what I really wanted to study was Maths and Econometrics – as if I even knew what that meant anyway. I had also considered French, Politics, Drama, Arabic, Economics, Spanish and various combinations of all of the above.

Greece, hold tight!

Great news! I’m going to Greece in September and I cannot wait. Woohoo!

This will be my first solo trip in about a year so I’m super, super, super excited to explore, meet new people, discover a new country and enjoy my own company.

I’ll be in Greece for about 11 days in total which should be enough time to discover Athens and perhaps one or two islands – I have yet to decide which.

I expect this trip will be a good balance between cultural activities, adventures and catching some sunshine on the beach – this chocolate is definitely ready to melt!

From doing a bit of research online I hear that there are a few impressive hiking trails to discover, which I know is going to be an unforgettable and absolutely beautiful experience.

Only 8 weeks to go!

 

Lessons from a first year uni student

My first year of drama school finished about two weeks ago (yay me!) and I was just reflecting on the year. Overall, it was filled with so many new experiences and faces, challenges, laughter, really good banta, a few hurdles, a little bit of stress – good stress, albeit – and, of course, some important lessons on how to act. My degree is in acting after all!
