The end of a career 

"Theres a time to persevere, and a time to let go. Your ability to know the difference will be your greatest source of strength."  Why is the idea of quitting something such a bad thing? It's vilified as one of the worst things you can do. It's perceived as a mark of failure, shame and weakness - especially in sports. The reality is that making the decision to leave a sport is never a...

GUIDE TO SELF-WORTH 

"I feel that becoming a more self-confident person with a goal of higher self-worth is something we all desire to achieve. Telling you exactly how to do it though, is not easy. There isn’t just one answer." Thoughts: I’m only 20, and already in my teenage and young adult life, social media use for my generation has skyrocketed. I must admit, for an introvert like myself, having a social media page allows me to feel connected...

Its been a while! So if anyone here follows my instagram (@leahwillfitness) you'll know that I took a little break from the whole social media thing. Like I said in a post a while back, I think that mental health is extremely important. With my schooling situation and everything moving 1000 miles a minute I decided to take a break from my fitness account and social medias and just focus on school and myself for a few months.

Embracing Change | Nursing, Curling & the Future

Competitive athletes spend most of their young life dedicating themselves fully to their sport and absolutely everything revolves around it. Countless hours were spent in the gym, on the ice and in curling clubs trying to take my game to the next level. I became a part of something bigger. I was a piece to a team. But being in university and curling so much all the time is hard.  ​For those who don't know, this upcoming...

Fuelling your own fire | Motivation

“Having a strong reason to act or accomplish something”.  A short and sweet definition, but finding it within yourself often seems like the biggest challenge in the world. Motivation for each person is different, but I think its crucial to have that desire and drive within you to keep you going in life, no matter what it throws at you.  I feel like motivation comes and goes. There are days where I feel like I'm on...
