January 19th 2020 is the day people are most likely to give up on their New Year’s resolutions according to new data insights from Strava, the world’s largest sports participation platform.

 

Quitter’s Day

Last year’s Quitter’s Day was January 17 2019, which is now honored as Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day.

Based on global athlete data from 2019 this year’s Quitter’s Day is January 19 2020.

 

Concluding from this global community data, Strava’s tips for extending the New Year’s resolution past Quitter’s Day include:

–  People keep people active: Find a friend or join a club to help keep you motivated. Cyclists going on group rides cover twice the distance of solo rides. One in three weekend activities in the UK is done with at least one other person.

–  Staying consistent: Athletes aiming for three activities a week instead of two tend to be more consistent, resulting in twice as many activities over the year.

–  Goal setting: Athletes who set goals in January are increasingly likely to remain active as the year goes on, and are still active.

 

So push past Quitter’s Day!

I love how these positive affirmations for the upcoming year are going viral.

It’s a creative play on words that also gives the new year a theme.

 

Last year we were invited to a Happy #20SHINETEEN.

 

This year we can look forward to a #20Plenty.

 

Of course a rather controversial outlook in times of extremely limited resources with the world population consuming as much as 1.7 planets Earth a year.

 

But also a really lovely idea: If there was plenty for everyone…

If all the rich people (Yes, that’s us, having the means to read this blog makes us part of the priviledged.) could give up just a little bit of their consumerism and convenience, learn to be more modest, actively making a change by supporting good causes such as refusing plastic and boycotting evil corporates, if just…

If just we could make the change happen that there is plenty for all.

 

Here’s to hoping for a better world in a new decade.

 

Happy #20PlentyForAll!

#GoBokkies! How amazing that the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup!

And they’re having such a blast ever since!

It started with Faf meeting Prince Harry in his underpants, well, his lucky speedo.

Hilarious jokes were played with Faf’s hair.

The Springboks’ bus parade was lined with men dressed in the “faf speedo”.

And now Faf is turning all this publicity into a good cause:

Faf is challenging men to be ballsy and take the #FafDeKlerkChallenge to create awareness around testicular cancer.

Faf himself is leading by example as he does not miss one opportunity to show off his lucky speedo:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In a fantastic initiative to create awareness about breast cancer and how to detect it, Know Your Lemons uses lemons to explain what breast cancer can look like:

Touch your lemons!


Cancer has no cure, so in order to combat it, early detection is key.

Generally women self-examining their boobs watch out for lumps, the most common sign of breast cancer.

But there are many other symptoms to watch out for as explained in the Know Your Lemons in 60 seconds video:

Learn how to examine your breasts.

Download this great free resource: ‘3 Steps to Early Detection‘.

Now that you know what to feel for, make sure you touch your boobies regularly, at least once a month in order to know how your breasts usually feel, so you notice if something abnormal crops up.

This applies for both, women and men.

I’m a big fan of the Cape Cultural Collective.

So when I saw they organised a community concert for Heritage Day I knew it would be great.

 

But it was so much more than that!

 

We were warmly welcomed at Bonteheuwel Civic Centre and stepped into the eclectic energy of community leaders from various backgrounds giving heartfelt speeches.

Abdu Ragmaan from the Cape Flats News offered a brief look at the history of the two communities in Langa and Bonteheuwel to understand the importance of this event.

“Bridge the Gap” can be taken literally, as there was a procession from Langa Guga S’thebe across the bridge over the M7 to the Bonteheuwel Civic Centre.

A symbolic step to bring together two neighbouring communities that usually live in fear of each other.

 

Bonteheuwel Civic Centre is packed:

 

In celebration of Heritage Day one of the traditional African music performances:

 

Kids are enjoying the programme:

 

Now that the community has led the way by bridging Langa and Bonteheuwel, the government and Cape Town City need to follow suit to help keep up the momentum going and deliver on long overdue responsibilities.

Happy Heritage Day!

The sun is out, it’s just a bit windy.

With Cape Town’s strong gusts it is no surprise that litter gets blown about and collects in the corners of our neighbourhood.

Every bin day I do a MOOP swoop and clean up our street.

But today I also did a quick cleanup, so we can all enjoy our hood for Braai Day.

It goes so quick, in only 10 minutes I collected more than one garbage bag, which, by the way, I also found amongst the litter.

If we all did this, our neighbourhood would always be clean.

Femicide rates in South Africa are “five times” the global average.

 

A woman is murdered every three hours in South Africa.

 

#EnoughIsEnough is Cape Town’s response as thousands take to the streets #RememberingUyinene:

The 19-year-old’s life came to a tragic end when she was raped and murdered at a post office.

 

Women and men alike are reacting in very emotional ways as they chant, sing and mourn:

 

Protesters are dressed in black in remembrance of the many lost lives:

 

Strong statements in reaction to the violence against women:

 

Typical: A peaceful protest is met with equally strong police force:

 

#SheIsMe  #WeWillNotBeNext  #WeAreTiredOfBeingScared  #Femicide  #OneEveryThreeHours  #WakeUpGovernment  #WomensMonthDisgrace

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
