A few recurring recommendations were cognitive behavioural therapy, meditation and mindfulness. I’ve practiced meditation and mindfulness in the past, and while meditation helped, I didn’t really understand mindfulness and how to use […]

    I followed a deadlift program in order to improve my personal best and failed!

    A little background to my deadlift journey… Around three or four years ago, I entered my first competition at my local CrossFit box.

    Sometimes you need to move backwards in order to move forward

    Starting at the beginning I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, but I was waiting for the right time. When I first started as a website developer, I landed my first job, which I expected to be a junior role. It was at a junior salary, but they were looking for someone […]

    Things are opening up here in the UK

    From tomorrow, we’ll be able to go back to the gym. Since the beginning of this lockdown, I haven’t been able to do many workouts. People say it’s easier to workout from home but to me it isn’t the same. My wife can see that I begin to withdraw from myself and become more depressed […]
