We will be performing a Crossfit workout named Becky on the 12th of October. Anyone can participate and all donations will be greatly appreciated. If you do perform the workout, a video of your performance will also be greatly appreciated too, in order to help spread and raise awareness for mental health. You can use the hashtag #FitnessForMentalHealth on all your favourite social networks to help spread awareness.

I’m doing this because my wife and I have both suffered from severe mental health. I’ve had major anxieties due to work, to a point where I would throw up constantly if I took a day off work. My wife has had severe depression because of struggles within her life. We also know so many people who either suffer or have had suffered from mental health in one way or another.

I want to give something back to everyone who suffers through life and doesn’t want to wake up in the morning for work or to see friends. This is why I’m fundraising and all donations received will be going to Mind Charity because they do some amazing work for those that suffer from mental health.

A little background behind the Crossfit workout called Becky…

“Becky” Rebecca Sefscik, a coach at Crossfit The Tracks (Erlanger, KY) and US military veteran, created this workout herself in 2012. Becky Sefscik took her own life on August 31, 2015, after a battle with PTSD.

Her box’s website posted that the workout “was tough, just like Becky…She was one of our favourite trainers, best friends and she’s missed every day. She was not only an amazing coach, but she was one of the strongest people we all knew, mentally and physically.”

In 2015, starting with a CrossFit The Tracks fundraising event on September 7, over 100 gyms and thousands of CrossFitters worldwide did this WOD in a celebration of Becky’s life and supporting 22 Until Valhalla for veterans and families affected by suicide and PTSD.

My first ebook will be about creating your first ebook

UPDATE: The book is now on sale at PayHip

You heard right, the first ebook I will be creating will about how to write your first ebook. I’ve been thinking about how I would love to create an ebook, but I didn’t know what to write about. Researching how to create an ebook leads to people explaining you should use Canva, Google Docs or something completely different, but they don’t explain how or why.

Canva is an incredible design tool, but why would I use it for information? How would I add a table of contents to my Canva ebook? Google Docs is obviously an amazing document tool. However, the same questions can be asked here. You have to piece together each question to find the correct answers in order to get a definitive answer.

I thought I would save everyone the hassle of this and use the knowledge I gain to help others in creating their ebook(s). The ebook will cover getting started, from planning to the creation and then selling and marketing. Each chapter will be a complete step by step guide. By the end, you will have created your very own ebook to market and sell.

Motivational Posters

Purchase some motivational posters

I have opened up an online store with Woocommerce and Printful and will be selling motivational posters. If you would like to take a look, then head over to this page and see for yourself. If you would like to give feedback, then please feel free to contact me through comments, Twitter or Facebook. I will reply back to you and will take all suggestions on board.

I am also looking to see if you have any issues when going through the checkout process, so if you do decide to purchase, let me know how your experience went. I would love to hear from you.

What’s the story behind this?

I’m always struggling with trying to find motivation in doing things, and I love to create. What’s better than helping myself and others find motivation and being creative? I can’t find a lot of things that are better, so that is why. Whenever I find a motivational quote, I write it down and then find an image that’s just as inspiring and fits the topic. I then usually post it on my Instagram page and if I find it’s really inspiring and motivational, then I create a poster of that. I will try t-shirts and other apparel in the future and experiment to find what works and what doesn’t.

Hopefully, you guys like what I am trying to do and appreciate the work I’ve put into this. Please please please comment below if you support this and I would love to start a conversation with you guys.
