Updated February 3rd, 2022, from Auckland, New Zealand.


The book I co-wrote with best selling author and Psychology Coach Charles Donoghue, Light Your Own Fire is published. Charles and I spent 12 months putting this together from the best of both of our writing. Alison Rowe wrote a fantastic endorsement for us.

Just read two amazing books that changed my mind on trees and New Zealand history. Well worth your time.

The Overstory: A Novel by Richard Powers
Tupaia: The Remarkable Story Of Captain Cook’s Polynesian Navigator by Joan Druett.

Reading Atomic Habits by James Clear. Worth the read.


100 Hindu Squats a day for 100 days – Day #375
This is a great way to get some exercise in. Break it down into sets of 20 or 25 at a time when you start. I do these at night for best results for me.

5 Hindu Pushups a day – Day #295
I do five normal Hindu Pushups and then 3-4 reverse Hindu Pushups. Where I do a normal one and reverse back the same way.
Update: now at either 5 and 5 or 10 and 5.

1 Minute Plank a day for 30 Days – Day #247 – Nick Gray’s Whatapp Group

Walking with a pack
I do this by playing Disc Golf at either Woodhill or Bethels once or twice a week.

Added: Oct 3rd 2022 Push up Ladders 3 x per week
I usually combine this with the Hindu Squats by doing 10 squats between each pushup round.

1 30 sec – 10 Hindu Squats
2 30 sec – 10 Hindu Squats
3 30 sec and so on. Stop when your form fails but keep going to 100 or more Hindu Squats.
