Finding that sense of optimism and positivity over the past year hasn't been easy, with people struggling with three lockdowns, being separated from their families, battling ill health and facing financial hardship. In that time Mr Motivator, real name Derrick Evans, has been working overtime to try and help people regain their positivity for life via his work as a health and wellbeing coach****.

Here, he gives his advice on how to stay grounded and find the joy in life.

He says: 'This pandemic has been a journey for all of us. So what have I learned over this last year?

There are only a few things that really matter.

  1. Your health, never take your health for granted. So you must do something active every day, to ensure that your health keeps pace with your life. If you work hard for 60 minutes then you need to do something for 6 minutes for your health.
  1. Love: who you love, that’s totally up to you. But whoever you love, look after them, treat them well. And if you don’t have someone to love in your life right now, look in the mirror and love yourself. Remember, loving yourself is the only way you can be assured that someone can love you
  1. Hugs: we’ve all missed them. I long for the day we can all hug again. It’s coming soon!
  1. Never take your life for granted. Remember you’re not given a good or bad life, you’re given one life and it’s up to you to make it good or bad.
  1. Look out for others. Say you’ll be there for others, you’ll be there for them at midnight if you need them. By looking out for them, the person who has cried for help hasn’t failed, it means they’re not alone.

At the end of the day, what’s more important than anything else? Count your blessings. All the things money can’t buy determine how rich you are. So from now on, look after yourself, you are the most important person in the world. Treat yourself so and be well!'
