Hero Blog Post Whole Food Plant Based Vs Vegan Diet

Whole-Food Plant Based Vs Vegan Diet

You may remember that I wrote an article a few weeks back sharing my reasons for eating a whole-food plant based diet. The response was pretty positive, and the article was featured on the Teen VGN Blog, so thanks for that! One thing you may have noticed in that article, and in others, is that I usually refrain from using the term ‘vegan diet’. In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t really matter, but I thought I would just clear things up. Yes, the diet I eat is vegan, but I thought I’d explain today why I lean towards describing it

Modern Day Samurai warrior

9 Ways to Become a Modern Day Samurai Warrior

The Samurai were the renowned warrior class of pre-modern Japan, remembered for their fierce fighting style and strict discipline. The Samurai embodied the warrior spirit, and are still revered even to this day. Here’s the thing: You may not be able to get away with wielding sharp swords in public. Wearing a full suit of armour to work probably won’t go down too well either… But the good news is that there are lots of other ways in which you can emulate the Samurai, and use their lessons to become a better version of yourself. So let’s get to it and

Hero Blog Post You Are Not Your Past

You Are Not Your Past

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” Buddha Starting from a young age, we are pretty good at forming ideas in our heads about who we are, what we can and can’t do, what we are capable of achieving. Some ideas are planted by others; perhaps family, friends, strangers, the media. Many we grow ourselves. As we get older, we often live our lives according to these beliefs, misconceptions, and false ideas.

Hero Blog Post Zen Children Regain Childlike State Mindfulness

Zen Children: 20 Ways to Regain Your Childlike State and Live in the Present Moment

Last week I sat down with my lovely girlfriend and watched a home video of my 3rd Birthday. Being the lucky boy that I was, I had a house full of family, a Flintstones themed cake and a load of Duplo to play with. What more can you ask for? I learnt a few things from watching my younger self: I apparently loved pretending to be a rhino, and roaring like a lion. I was partial to dancing to some Lionel Richie. I liked fighting my older cousin – the martial arts started pretty early. I was brainwashed into being a

Hero Blog Post Non Resistance Sport Life

Non-Resistance: In Sport and Life

Non-resistance. You might have heard it as “go with the flow”, or “let it be”.   It can be described and interpreted in a whole load of different ways. Non-resistance is a principle that has been promoted by many great spiritual leaders and philosophers in one form or another; and something we could all perhaps learn from and keep in mind, during both sport and life in general. Socrates expressed non-resistance on his deathbed, using it to demonstrate that his immortal message was more important that his mortal being. Lao Tzu described the principle of Wu-Wei in the Taoist script

Hero Blog Post Zone 2 Training Cardiovascular Fitness

ZONE 2 TRAINING: The Missing Link in Your Cardiovascular Fitness

Give this a share Zone 2 training might not seem like the most exciting way to develop your aerobic endurance. Plodding your way through a zone 2 cardio workout without breathing heavy doesn’t sound as hardcore as blasting a high intensity Tabata session and finishing in a pool of your own blood, sweat and tears… But as the old parable goes: “The wise man built his house upon the rock”.  One of my underlying goals here at Hero Movement is to explore and share training methods and habits that are sustainable.    Alongside mobility training and other restorative practices, that’s

Hero Blog Post Satori in Sport BJJ Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Satori In Sport: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

SATORI ‘Satori’ is a term derived from Japanese Buddhism. It is sometimes used inter-changeably with the word ‘Kensho’, or the Chinese concept of ‘Wu’. These terms refer to the moment in time where we experience a ‘glimpse of awakening’. We may experience Satori many times in our lives, but often we fail to recognise it. This calm state occurs when we reside purely in the present moment. It is a state of emptiness, during which you begin to see into your true nature. Experiencing and recognising Satori is thought to be a step towards enlightenment or nirvana. Traditionally, the use of meditation
