Every week I write a Monday Morning Motivation post. These are posts to inspire and motivate you! They include content sourced from around the world.

These are some of my favourite posts to write. I keep a blogging notebook and jot down details of anything that I see that has inspired me. Many of my posts include videos.

If you see something that has inspired you to keep fit and healthy, please send me a link!
