Lenise Collimore

Am happy to present Lenise Collimore, one of our lovely Get in Touch Network Partners, who once has given an inspiring talk to tour Get in Touch Group (see pics in this blogpost).

She then told us about her own personal ‘journey in life’, coming from somewhere else in the world, via via landed in Eindhoven, and how she managed to get herself rooted again.

Her initiative to start her own blog ‘Eindhoven in Motion’ has been a great support for herself, but also for a lot of followers, especially internationals who are searching around for useful and relevant information about sports in general, sports events, specific sports, sport experiences .. in English!

Lenise provides for that in her appealing personal way in her blog ‘Eindhoven in Motion’.  Below she has written a post for our own Get in Touch Blog about how motivation and ‘getting in motion’ are closely linked to each other … enjoy and thx Lenise !

MOTIVATION – HOW TO FIND IT WHEN WE LOSE IT?

Some days I just don’t have it. I get snowballed with work and family life. And I can procrastinate with the best of them. “I don’t have time”, I say. “I will do it tomorrow”, I tell myself, unconvincingly. And the more I do this, the less motivation I have. And the less motivation I have, the more I put things off. And the more I put things off, the worse I feel. It can affect my sleep, my mood, my concentration, and my choices.

For me, exercise and motivation are tightly linked. If I don’t get a good dose of movement in my day, I can’t quite keep up with anything. But what happens when I don’t have the motivation to exercise? How do I find it again?

Both are passionate about the broad variety of sports any member might enjoy in the beautifully equipped  center, each day of the week.

Recently, our Get in Touch group has enjoyed a wonderful guided tour, which was awesome en informative. We’ll keep being involved as partner in this appealing project. Therefore I would love to give floor to Susan and her captivating story. Enjoy!

THE TRIBE OF PLAY

Ding-dong. [Door opens]. “Hey! Can you come out and play?”

This was the slogan of my childhood. Growing up in the Mojave Desert suburbs of Los Angeles in the ‘90’s, the kids on bicycles, skateboards and light-up sneakers ruled the streets.

Once in a while we make GiT Secondhand & Vintage Shop Tours, and sometimes it’s included in other GiT Tours like last Friday in our GiT Woensel West Side Tour.

Good and useful stuff for small prices .. recycling products for a good cause .. interesting and worthwhile to try and check out, I guess.

Below I’d like to present some of these venues and stores in Eindhoven.
