I am happy to finally be able to say that I am launching my project.
Primary goal of this website is to CONNECT & EDUCATE.
How does it work?
So what does this project of mine actually entail?
I see Triple Threat as a platform which connects, teaches and inspires anyone who stumbles upon it. Each of you can help someone get closer to their dreams, surpass the dificulties they come across, offer valuable (life) lessons and show support.
Why the name?
Triple threat is actually a position in basketball where you hold a ball in a shoulder-widght-low stance in front of your chest and you are ready to do any of the main basketball movements: drive, shoot & pass. If you’re asking yourself whether this website is gonna be about basketball, the answer is NO. I took this analogy because basketball is my first love, sport I once thrived in and the introduction to active lifestyle. Today I count three major passions which I greatly identify with and those are: psychology, sports & nutrition. These are three topics I personally want to delve in, but the website is meant to GROW and with that expand to other topics which are gonna be chosen by YOU …read more
Being backed up with university degree of psychology gives me more of an edge than in other two passions of mine. Yet, it’s the topic I find hardest to describe briefly.
Consider one thing… You book appointments with the doctor, physiotherapist, nutritionist, hairdresser (!!), etc. and happily leave 20+ Euros (tarifa Balkan :P) in order to receive help. But when it comes to your mind processes and behaviour, psychologists are the last ones to cross your mind?? Of course, first comes your mum, friend, neighbours, fruit vendors, people at the bar, mothers in law; all but psychologists! Funny. Until it stops being funny… Take mental health seriously like any of the aforementioned topics that we seek specialists for. Speak about it. Turn the page and do yourself a favour by referring to a professional if necessary. It is like going to medical check-ups where they draw your blood. Psychologists can work on the prevention part equally well. And it doesn’t end only at that. Let me state this once and for all: you do NOT need to suffer or have a problem to reach out for a psychologist.read more
Some people joke that I was born with a basketball in my hands. 😂 With the ball or not, being active is installed in me and engaging in physical activity has been a habit of mine ever since I was a kid. Numerous benefits of an active lifestyle are widely known and many of the sources report different levels of exercise to maintain a balanced active lifestyle. Instead of getting lost in recommendations many of us choose to give it a try and figure it out ourselves.
All of the pros can backfire if the intensity and frequency of physical activity are not adequate. Little secret behind the ‘know hows’ of this part is listening to your body. As with any language, to understand what your body is saying, you will need a lot of practice which naturally requires time. During the process you will attune better to the subtle cues your body gives away and will learn how to act accordingly.read more
I won’t go deep into this, I’ll just leave you with selection of food porn from my extensive ñam ñam album.
Although I have no formal background on the topic (yet!!!), countless hours in the kitchen, reading about food related topics and learning from people who share their knowledge have awaken the foodie in me.
If having doubts and/or when going through problematic times concerning nutrition, don’t hesitate to reach out to professionals or alike who may offer you some valuable advice. We’re all here to help each other
