Event: #DDHike 3

I love hiking so much this year I decided to include my readers in the process. 6  months ago I hosted the first DDHike it went so well I knew it had to be a regular thing. I’ve since hosted 2 more hikes and this was the last one for 2017. Check out the fun we had.

The one thing blogging made me realise is that it takes a village not only to raise a child but for personal development of an adult, for growth. If you want to learn a new skill or better yourself whether physically or mentally or emotionally, you need a community. A community can motivate you when you down ; a community can help you with tasks when you have too much on your hands. So don't be an island, grow your village, learn to delegate task and learn to ask for help. It's needed for growth. And help your fellow person.

5 YouTube channels I use for my home workouts

I’ve been working out from home consistently for the last 2 years and I’ve lasted this long because of a few great resources.Honestly will power is not enough, there has to be other driving elements. I get asked all the time what I use and while I have a few workout plans on paper I find videos work best for me, having someone cheer you on when you work out is always great even if its through the TV. Below is my top 5 fitness channels.
