This weekend I had the pleasure of spending it on @beatmyaddictions workshop! With Chris Hill ..
The information and what I have learnt is mind blowing! No one really talks about their addictions or depression or their anxiety and stress – if you’re a man or a woman we all suffer the same. This course I have studied all weekend is information you can’t get from a doctor or a scientist or a therapist etc.. if you have drug, drink, nicotine, sugar, food, gambling, eating disorders or any addiction that effects your life and you want to change your life then this is the course for you! Mine was held @carbonbootcamp but Chris does help in all areas.. Some will prob want to know why I did the course its more for my diet and fitness and focus and drive on my work as I love being a business woman and more information is never enough! What I have learnt will always stay with me and I’d love to help others.. It was lovely to meet all the lovely people there we all have different goals and journeys .. good luck ???
