Happiness hunting in Bali.

The past month, I have been travelling around Bali, immersing myself into different cultures to discover, what is it that makes other countries who seem to have ‘less’ than us, ‘happier’, and what is that secret ingredient?

Have we put that much pressure on ourselves in Western society to perform and become ‘successful’, that we’ve forgotten the true meaning of success – to be happy, healthy, with values and surrounded by people who matter.

This is Kedek. She is 84 years old and sells juice at the side of the road each day and has done for the past 30 years. Her posture is better than mine, she had a beaming smile on her face from the moment I met her and she simply exudes joy.

Her secret? She set herself a target each day to hit. And when she did?

She didn’t strive for more and more, she went home and spent the day with her family and was content.

I’m not saying this is right or wrong but it’s interesting to see the different values.

If you are a CEO, yet unhappy and not getting to experience life how you would like, would it not serve you better lose the label… but feel better?

Do you identify who you are by what you do? And what would happen once that title is taken away from you?

Would you still be ‘you’?

Next month I travel to India to live with Tibetan monks, to learn their mind mastery and discover any secrets they hold. Perhaps we can learn to tackle mental health issues through ancient methods and in fact look to prevention, rather than a cure.

I look forward to sharing many more life stories and experiences with you along the way and I hope to learn as much as possible.

What do you think the key to happiness is?

  • Thank you @nxtep_personal_training for helping me find balance over the last few weeks! 
I think this is probably the first time in my life I’ve pretty much eaten what I want and trained without feeling guilty and still managed to see results. I feel SO much happier and healthier within myself for finally getting the kick up my arse to train again. Thank you thank you thank you - you are THE best!! Can’t recommend @t_fozzy @jkmhackwell @Davi d_bell_1989 and the uber friendly and professional team enough x

  • “Your body will be around a lot longer than that expensive handbag. Invest in yourself”. Thank you my legendary PT and friend @jkmhackwell for another fab session this morning! I’ve found getting fit on my own so hard over the last year, trying to balance work and health so I decided to get some help and haven’t looked back! I’m still eating pretty much what I want and although I know that won’t create the ‘quickest’ results, I love how @nxtep_personal_training understand that the lettuce life is not sustainable or fun and I looove how much stronger and healthier I feel! 💪🏻🙌🏻🙋🏼‍♀️Thank you team!!
