I am going to be planting trees.
Not me, personally, or will I be planting them in my garden. I am working with the charity, Trees for Life, who will be planting the trees within a conservation forest near Loch Ness.
For every person who signs up for one of my Personal Training packages or joins my Running Academy, I will plant a tree in their name.
Here’s why I’m going to be planting trees.
For the short answer, watch this video.
For the long answer, keep reading….
A new direction
I believe the lockdown presented us with a great opportunity to pause, reflect on where we’re going and create a better future. Over the last couple of years, I’ve worked with a number of people who found it hard to fit in exercising because of being too busy at work and with other commitments. This was unsustainable.
We now have the opportunity to do things differently, put ourselves first, feel more energised, happier and still get more done but in less time.
Forget ‘just’ getting fit, dream big, go after what you really want and get fit along the way!
We need to save the planet
The pandemic could also be a reminder that we need to take care of the planet, as well as ourselves and each other.
We can’t rely on governments to do this for us. This is something we can do for ourselves. Every little helps, as they say!
One of the best ways we can do this is by planting trees. By planting trees, we can help stabilise the climate, support wildlife and protect endangered species. If each of us plants a tree, we can make a massive difference.
When we help others, we help ourselves
Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than we help others do something they aren’t able to do by themselves. We get a buzz when we do something for ourselves but an even greater buzz when we help each other.
It doesn’t have to be big gestures either, something as simple as when we’re driving and someone lets us out at a junction and we do the same for another driver can make us smile.
The way this project works is that you could also plant a tree in the same grove, and do so for family, friends etc. They could also plant trees for their family and friends and so on.
Imagine if we all planted trees, and in a couple of months, we managed to plant 100 trees in the grove. How good would it feel, not only for the benefits to your own health and fitness but to know you’re helping make a difference to wildlife, communities and future generations?
