The Biggest Question Of All: Why?

WHY? It’s a question that I think it completely undervalued, and it is a question that I try to ask myself on a regular basis. Why are you in your job? Why are you studying? Why do you want to achieve that goal? Why are you giving up sugar? Why do you feel the way you do? What is the reason you do what you do?

Pressure – Choke or Deal With It?

I thought this topic is quite timely to talk about, because at the time of writing this, I am mentally and physically recovering from a 6-2 loss to USA who we play again today.

Be Grateful

“When I’m worried and cannot sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep” Gratefulness is something that we are so often too busy for. How often do we actually stop and think, “wow, I’m so grateful for this opportunity” “I’m so grateful to have this delicious cup of coffee” It sounds super cheesy, but it can change your attitude in a few minutes if you remember to practise it.

Comfortable In Your Comfort Zone

I went on a leadership retreat in October last year. One conversation really stuck with me, which made me make a huge life change. They asked us, “what have you been putting off because you’re scared, or nervous, or think you’re not ready for?”

It’s All About Balance

It’s funny how I wrote the topic for this blog idea quite a while before I actually sat down and wrote it, where at this moment, I’m sitting here literally having launched a support programme called ‘All About Balance’ to help high performing young women at high school BALANCE their sport, life and school. *Note: Read to the end to learn more about my 6 week e-course for high school girls that I’ve launched and I am currently taking applications for, or if you don’t want to keep reading, click here to learn more and apply! (If I were you, I’d keep reading!)

Don’t Be Defined By Your Day Job

After the Olympics last year, I found myself in a bit of a rut. I knew I had to dedicate the next six months to rehabbing my knee, but while I was doing that, I needed to figure out what to do with my career.

WL Semi Finals

Hi from Belgium! So we are at the back end of the tournament… the business end! Tomorrow, we will take on the Netherlands in the Semi Final. The team is excited, these big games are the reason why we play hockey. The pressure, atmosphere, and quality of the game is always lifted in a semi, and it’s within our complete control to decide how we show up.

My Experience With Pain

Warning: Very emotional story to follow. I thought hard about sharing this. It’s a subject that is very personal to me, and I’m shit scared that other people are reading this. But if it can help others going through any type of pain, then it’s worth it.

Sports Nutrition With Olympian Sam Charlton

I sat down with my friend and team mate Sam Charlton, who has been to two Olympic Games, played almost 200 games for New Zealand and is also a qualified nutritionist! This girl is a go getter and I loved our conversation.

The Power Of Positive Thinking

Let’s get real. It’s winter. It’s cold. It’s dark. If you’re human, I’m sure you’ve caught yourself with some pretty negative thoughts lately. I know I’ve been having a fair few, especially last week. I’ve found myself complaining a whole lot more than normal, and I’ve noticed what a negative impact it’s had. So this week, I’m switching it around!
