GABRIELLE WEISS

Founder

Health and fitness has always been in my life, as I’ve grown older and more self-aware I’ve seen how influential exercising, eating well and building a resilient mindset has contributed to my career success, and living a purpose driven life. I created Dear Future Self to share this with you so you can step up and find your best self.

“I believe combining performance psychology, nutrition and exercise is a powerful combination that will enable you to lead a healthy lifestyle that’s sustainable, and ultimately you’ll be able to achieve way more then you thought was possible. Good luck on your journey to find your future self!”

Our client’s lives have changed

  • "I struggle to eat well, with two small businesses and a toddler I'm often time poor and find myself making the wrong food choices - generally grabbing whatever is quick and easy.   I don't have time to sit down and read articles so the Master of Yourself program is great! I love listening to the podcasts, I can listen while I'm driving to work or getting dinner ready.   And I love the yummy breakfast recipes. After two weeks on the program my eating habits have improved and I feel more knowledgeable about nutrition choices I'm making for me and my family."

  • "I lacked motivation, I had all these ideas and plans in my head but putting them into practice was where I was falling short. I kept falling into the trap of 'there is always tomorrow'.   I'm two weeks into the Master of Yourself program and I'm really enjoying the mindfulness section. The practical tips ensure I keep this up on an ongoing basis. For example I downloaded the Headspace app and tried meditation for beginners, I've found it clears my head before bed and I have a great nights sleep."

  • "As a mother of 3 children under 5, I wasn't getting enough sleep, I was eating on the run, never exercised, procrastinated, felt stressed and found it hard to stay motivated. I was unable to create goals and felt stuck. The short podcasts in The Master of Yourself Program have given me practical advice that's easy to follow and implement in my life. After only two weeks, I noticed the activities made me think about what matters to me and puts everything into perspective. This has reduced my stress levels and highlighted the vision I have for my future and the direction I need to head."

  • I joined Dear Future Self because I was over thinking all things to do with my well-being which lead to feeling overwhelmed! The Master of Yourself program is so easy to use. The content is informative, the speakers are very knowledgeable. And the practical activities are also easy to understand and implement weekly so you gradually build on what you learn each week rather than trying to make big changes all at once.

  • I've had an epiphany about mindfulness! This program has taught me about the importance of taking time out for myself to get my head space right so everything else can start falling into place. My motivation and organisation has increased and I've lost 1kg so far!
