What can you expect from Plant Based and Positive in 2018? What are we working on? What are we doing and what are we planning?
Firstly, I've been writing an eBook. It is a collection of everything that helped and inspired me to go from where I was in 2013 to where I am now. Long story short, in 2013 I hit the wall with my mental and physical health. I had very bad anxiety, I was having panic attacks, my diet was increasingly unhealthy and I was not exercising in any way. As a result I was gaining weight and experiencing various physical ailments because of all the stress and tension I was holding in my body. As you can imagine, this downward spiral left me feeling depressed with very little energy and confidence.
Today I'm healthier, happier and fitter than I've ever been. This eBook outlines the tools I used to make this journey. I include everything from videos I watched and books I read to mindset changes and practical everyday tips and techniques.
I like to think of it as an 'Inspiration for Change' Toolkit. My reason for creating this collection is simply to put out there as many things as I can remember that helped me, in the hope that one or two of these things will help someone else out there to reach a more positive place in their life.
Secondly, we are moving on to Vietnam at the end of this month and we may be doing some bike touring up the coastline. This will be a new mental and physical challenge for me and as such I hope to document it as best I can through blogging, videos and social media.
Speaking of mental and physical challenges, I hope to continue taking on or embracing new mental challenges that come my way. Last year there was our London to Paris ride, this year so far there has been my aim of achieving a sub hour time on Doi Suthep, (the mountain in Chiang Mai). My current time is 1 hour, 2 minutes so we're nearly there! Next there may be bike touring in Vietnam and if we're back in the UK this summer I have some ideas of things I'd like to take on over there so we'll see what comes up.
The overall aim of Plant Based and Positive has always been to share my thoughts, my lifestyle tips and what I've learnt so that others that are struggling might find hope, help and inspiration to start taking steps towards a healthier, happier mind and body.
These are my thoughts right now, we're only in February, who knows what will have happened by December. In the short term, I'll keep you posted on my eBook, links to the website and social media are below. I'm going to try and be a little more consistent in uploading content on these so please follow along on whatever platforms suit you.
