Hello friends. Happy Friday! Here are 5 things I'd like to share with you today:
This week I started the F45 Challenge. It's a fitness and nutrition programme designed to help you lose body fat and increase lean muscle over 8 weeks. It started on Monday all across the world, and I'm taking part in my local F45 gym on Townsend street. I'll admit that my overall diet and fitness levels have been pretty poor over the last few years. It can be tough to find the time to exercise and eat well when you run your own business. But I'm not letting that be an excuse anymore! Looking forward to seeing how I get on over the next 8 weeks and I'm hoping to see some big changes. One week nearly down and it's been tough. It gets easier though, right?
On Wednesday we celebrated World Mental Health Day in the office. We did meditation, rooftop dancing, Mario Kart tournaments, fluffy dog visits and a whole heap of things that really brought our community together and instilled a positive vibe across everyone's day. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to celebrate with!

Stop cancelling or rescheduling things. I'm guilty of doing it sometimes, but it's so important that we respect both our own and other people's time. We should commit only if we're going to follow through, and it's ok to think things over and not respond immediately. In this article, Whitney Johnson explains why we really should stop doing it and gives a few tips on how to go about it. Read it here.

I've been meaning to check out Atypical for a while now, and I'm glad I did. It's a coming-of-age Netflix show that focuses on the life of Sam Gardner, an 18-year-old high school student who is on the autism spectrum. It's a really funny, heartwarming show that has the right measure of both silly and serious in it. It focuses on a topic that's really important to me (I've got a tattoo to prove it!) and I'm glad to see further autism awareness has happened because of it.
