Learning New Stuff!

I have always liked drawing but I was never good at! As some of you may know I work in marketing and a big part of it is design, whether it be for a clients Facebook post, marketing collateral or initial creative for a new business pitch. I have always had an interest in it but never had the resources (Photoshop) to try it for myself. Luckily a colleague of mine gave it to me and since then I have become hooked!!!!

I’ m quickly finding out how useful it is and I am having great fun learning new aspects of the program too. It brought me onto think about how important it is to always be learning something new. I have a very addictive personality and I remember as a kid I’d pick things up quickly and never put them down for ages. Whether it was me learning how to Rollerblade or if it was learning the guitar (which i regrettably put down). Looking back on it now these moments were when I was at my happiest and most motivated. I’m a learner! I love the thrill of being rubbish at something and finally cracking it, it gives me such a buzz and it definitely boosts my confidence!

I have decided that I am going to go to a boxing gym and learn how to box. I have always had a fascination with the sport and loved the discipline and the honor associated with it.  I have never been the best specimen of an athlete in my life I’m of average height short arms and slightly on the chubby side but I think that because I have identified this it will help push me to go harder.

A big part of this for me and i’m sure you people is finding the time! I believe that it is strongly imperative that you brake your time down into these major categories to live a better life: work, social and you time. Even if you have to literally create an excel spreadsheet and divide your time up each week based on these categories I guarantee you will see a change in your overall mood.

    I have never done boxing, but I found skipping for 5-10 minutes a day helps with weight loss.
    Most top boxers practice skipping. (It’s part of their training).
    Good luck with the boxing gym!
