Extreme Athletes Hillary Biscay & Rich Roll On Mental Strength

Hi guys, I mean I love MindBodyGreen, and even more since they started doing little video advice pieces. 

This time founder Jason Wachob talks to extreme athletes Hillary Biscay and Rich Roll about mental strength.

One bit that stood out was both athletes agreeing that you cannot think your way out of stressful / painful / difficult situations, you can only act your way out! More goodness below!

From A Girl's Perspective - 2016 Edition

Hi lovers, I have resurrected one of the most popular post genres on this blog! Yes interviews – of course people are tired of reading about my life all the time, so they love hearing some other input. Of course I cater to the needs of my (3) readers. Always! 

What’s the first thing that attracts you to a guy?
The smile and shoulders has to be fit!

How do you know someone fancies you?
Easy! Body language which makes is super easy/natural to know for example: shoulder inclination, natural personal space, whether he finds excuses to touch you … 

When do you feel most like yourself?
While singing in the shower, getting dressed every morning or at the gym.

What life advice would you give to your 16-year-old self?
To do only what you feel like doing, cuz it is better to regret what you've done than regretting what you did not get to do. Experiences is what life is made of ;)

What’s the main difference between boys and girls?
Selfishness levels!

Why is this love game so hard?
Cuz we believe that in a game can only be one winner: But most of us forget that the game is not made of results only but of the 90 minutes!

What makes you fall for a guy?
I can only fall for a guy who can make me priority one in his life, cuz only then I know it’s worth it.

Do you believe in ‘moments’?

Do you believe in timing?

What things put you off a guy most? What’s a deal-breaker? 
He’s in a relationship with the mum and/or family

What makes the perfect date?
A good kiss

Beauty or Brains?
Sweet heart but of course brains! Cheesy but beauty fades brains is something I wish to have, but sweetness is a must.

Style or Substance?

Blonde or Brunette?

Husband or Hottie?

Linda's Killer Workout Tunes

Right lovers, today I will embrace the fear and will attend my first personal training session ever. Wah!

My trainer is a fierce beast, I am a little scared to be completely honest, but I am also looking forward to it immensely! What can I say - I love sweating. Some tunes make me go mental, keep me going, accelerate me to that next level. Here they are - the best workout songs according to me! Just imagine me skipping rope to any of the following - you get the idea!

"Labrinth - Earthquake (All Stars Remix)"
(feat. Kano, Wretch 32, Busta Rhymes and Tinie Tempah)

"Swappi - Bucket"

"DJ Khaled - All I Do Is Win"
(feat. Ludacris, T-Pain, Rick Ross and Snoop Dog)

"Fort Minor - Remember The Name"

Grime Jams 2016

Hi lovers, I know I look like a cute indie fairy (at least this is what people tell me) but music-wise that couldn't be further from the truth. I love all things black music and recently I have become a little obsessed with grime. It's raw. It's brutal. I love it. Kano might have something to do with that too.  


So here are some tunes that are totally doing it for me right now. 

Yungen - Punk

Ghetts x Rude Kid - One Take

Konan - Last Night in LA

Taking that control back!

Hi lovers, it’s been a while since I wrote a non-music related post. So you are lucky because today’s the day for some real talk.

Feeling feelings is life. Be grateful you can feel feelings, not everybody can. Celebrate every little minutiae of emotion because it’s beautiful. You are alive and feeling feelings! Fuck yes. YOLO.

There is so much strength in weakness. There is so much going on inside and you should never be afraid to show the outside world that vulnerability, that rawness and that beauty. 

Your surroundings are direct reflections of you. Messy house, messy mind. 

Be upset, grieve, be angry and realise that at the end you can get over it and take that fucking control back. You cannot control anybody or anything – but you know what you can control? Yourself! That is the beauty!

I say it once and always: Actions speak louder than words. Don’t be lured by the words, be lured by the work he does for you.

If you know what you want, you just have to find someone who wants that too. Finding someone is not the challenge, finding someone fitting is.

Don’t adapt your hopes and dreams to anybody, adapt them to you!

It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt so I plead with you - be real! Confrontation is always the hardest, but constant harmony is for pussies anyway.

Speak your mind. Respectfully.

I love you lovers! Keep on being good people! X
