1. What is your Philosophy?
Effort. I believe in putting in the effort to control the outcome and not leaving things to chance. With effort comes reward. Tenacity!
2. What is your ‘get through anything’ tip?
I analyse, plan and then try to be as competent as possible. Coco Chanel used to say “Less is more” so I try never to over talk or reveal too much. It’s important to look good, sound good and say smart things. Smile!
3. What is your ultimate health/fitness tip?
I do what I can, when I can – but I always try to do something. My ultimate health tip is to really switch off when I go to bed – I breathe deeply, and stop worrying. Worrying is like a rocking chair. You rock and rock but go nowhere! And you can always return to worrying tomorrow. Relax!
