When we get stuck, it helps to have someone with a whistle and clipboard urging us on. The most accomplished athletes in the world still rely on their coaches—not because they don’t understand their sport, but because they may not fully understand themselves. I’ve found that there are certain things that help my clients maintain motivation when moving toward a goal or seeking to make a change in an aspect of their life. Here are 7 steps to help you become a champion.

As creatures that evolved in an environment that obligated constant movement the notion of sitting at a desk for 8-12 hours a day is totally unhealthy and foreign.  Unfortunately, the last time I checked no one is really excited to pay me to go on monster hikes and epic bike rides 5 days a week.  So I spend a fair amount of time in front of a computer just like most of you.  However, being in front of a computer does not mean that you do not have to move at all, you can engineer sneaky ways to move even in the modern work space. 



Our Culinary Team produces amazing meals all day every day for our guests, but do you ever wonder how the kitchen works?  What happens in the back of the kitchen is usually a mystery to most, but not anymore! This video gives you glance at how our amazing chefs work flawlessly through a dinner service here at Miraval. Enjoy!
