Have you got a personal trainer in your life?  
 
I have. It's tough .. They are always there with their beady eye watching what you are up to, challenging behaviour and actions that don't fit with your plan for success.  
 
They challenge you out of your comfort zone, help you rid yourselves of those limiting beliefs you've maybe had since you were rubbish at games at school ( you know nearly always picked last for the team!) but mainly they hold you to account for the actions you have chosen to take. 
 
 
Well actually no it isn't really. 
 
Experts have declared ‘sitting is the new smoking’ and whilst you may think this is a bit extreme, there is now science behind the truth that prolonged sitting is dangerous to our health. 
 
The average Brit spends 8.9 hours a day sitting down. More of us are working in jobs which see us spending our entire work days sitting down, even those of us who have our own businesses – but sedentary behaviour is often linked to obesity, Type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer and even premature death. 
If you’ve boarded an aeroplane to fly away on holiday, then you’ve heard the flight attendant’s safety chat. 
 
You know the one – where the exits are, that your life jacket is under your seat and how to put it on, inflate it and blow the whistle and if the cabin pressure drops then the oxygen masks will drop from above your head and you need to use them. 
 
Just pondering on that last bit though .. don’t they always tell you to put yours on first before helping children and those struggling around you? 
 
As children we are taught to be polite to other people and offer our sweeties first to others. In fact, if you think back it was almost as if everyone else should come first and it was very rude to just think of yourself. That of course would be selfish! 
 
So why when we are flying on a plane should we do exactly the opposite then? 
 
No I don’t actually mean the plumbing in your house … I mean those you spend your time with! 
 
Maybe it's time to refelct on your plumbing as you rea this ... 
 
You know the sorts .. the ones who are always miserable, see the worst in every situation, don’t want you to do very well because they aren’t. They suck your energy. They are DRAINS. 
 
The other sorts are the folks around who are always inspiring you, they may challenge your negative thinking, seeing the positive in every situation and just make you feel good. They lift you up. They are RADIATORS.
