Going vegan is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 

While a vegan lifestyle make me happier knowing that I am  doing less harm in the world, I need to explore other options to deal with my negative thinking patterns and feelings of inexplicable misery coming from my injury knowing that I won’t be able to race in triathlon this year. 

But practicing mindfulness, and the attention it requires, also  lead me to bridge the gap between the beauty in the world and my own internal darkness, letting in a glimmer of light.

Vegan lifestyle, as well as a rewarding my new career. I’m passionate about my love for Yorkshire, that I decided to go with it, as a test, for a Tour de Yorkshire 2018 race in 6 weeks and support Marie Curie Hospice.  The rewards of these small, mindful gestures can transform my emotions and improve my well-being.

Getting better nutrition allows me to train harder, which makes me a stronger athlete. I also have a much better relationship with food - I eat a lot and I don’t have to worry about eating the wrong things. I monitor my blood work, take my B12 and continue to educate myself.

Food preparation and eating don’t have to be tasks to complete. They can be meaningful experiences themselves. And these experiences add up to a happy life.

Try not to judge it. Just become aware of what you’re seeing and how it makes you feel, and go from there. And think How can you be more mindful in your everyday life and  began living more in line with my values ?
