Key Takeaways

  • The menstrual period is a good time for training and cold exposure
  • The anticipation of the cold is much worse than the actual event
  • Ice baths create a sympathetic response in the body leading to adaptation
  • With a full experience, the body and metabolism will reap the rewards for at least 24 to 36 hours afterwards
  • Let your body do the work to get the maximum benefit
  • Thinking about doing the work actually results in better work, it’s about getting better because you are riding the edge
  • Putting the stressor into the muscle means it adapts and you get tighter, stronger and leaner
  • Write down every day something that is positive and something that is beautiful about yourself
  • We spend a lot of time obsessing over how we look but we only have this moment, and this day every day
  • Women are so hard on themselves but all women are  incredible, amazing and beautiful
  • with  many special gifts that no one else has
  • Small consistencies every day are what get us to the long-term goal
  • Your cells are listening when you are talking to yourself and it impacts on how you are showing up in the world
  • Being outside and grounding is a simple but very powerful tool
  • If you understand your body you can take control
  • Looking at your body as a whole and understanding the mechanics means you can optimise and live your best life 

Best Moments
