Why should I be more present during exercise?

Why should I be more present during exercise? Arnold Schwarzenegger is known for many things. He’s been The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, he was an early addition to a growing list of men that have been pregnant (not in reality of course), and he’s been the Governor of California. But initially he found fame as the most successful bodybuilder of his era […]

Why Do We Need To Find Acceptance?

About White Line Coaching

Why Do We Need To Find Acceptance? Allow me to tell you two true stories that have played out in my life. They link together in a funny sort of way which I’ll explain as I go, and beg the question – why do we need to find acceptance? The first happened in 2016. This is a period of my life […]

30 Day Challenge- Parts Work

30 Day Challenge- Parts Work How many days completed- 28 I’m always doing 30-day challenges. I’m not sure why 30 days. I’ve seen other people do it I suppose, and 30 days is a month, give or take. Earlier this year, I did a 30-day cold-water immersion challenge where I dunked myself into the small river that runs alongside […]

The Unnatural Human Amnesia

The Unnatural Human Amnesia Today I went for a walk with my family at my favourite local countryside spot.

If you desire to lift yourself up from that point, you can make a deep assessment of exactly where you went wrong. Even if you haven’t […]

Can you win, AND be happy!

Can you win, AND be happy? A few weeks ago, I posted a blog about my past mental health struggles and how I believe they could have manifested themselves through a faulty approach to life that began for me as a youngster entering elite sport. In short, I believe a desire to overcome internal issues like low self-esteem (of which […]

There’s No I In External

There’s No I In External  It is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK at the time of writing. I’ve noticed many people posting bravely on social media about their struggles. I have mixed feelings about what I see. Sometimes I read with admiration at what is being revealed, and sometimes I judge people as attention seekers or as […]

Coming Back To Yourself


Coming Back To Yourself  More so than any other creature on the planet, Human Beings are expert at not being experts on themselves. Very often, the person we are being or the state we find ourselves in is something we desire to move immediately away from. From what I can make out, birds don’t delude themselves about their […]
