  • Orale, hablas español, yo entiendo muy poco el ingles, sin embargo me esfuerzo para entender la idea de tus vídeos, son muy buenos, gracias por compartir, saludos

  • Yeah but I constantly feel like I’m not doing enough so what’s the point. I know that’s stupid and I’ll never get anywhere with that mentality but I can’t help a feeling.

  • I came back to this video and rewatched it during the covid-19 outbreak and am using these tips and tweaking them towards social distancing and taking care of ourselves because although it’s nicer out than winter, we can still become depressed by being mandated to stay inside all the time. This has been helpful

  • I love Winter, myself. Summer is my disgusting season. I can’t stand the heat because I hate sweating and being rashy and covered in sunburn and pimples. I literally do as little as possible during the summer because it’s too hot to do anything other than sit in the AC and wait for fall weather.

  • this video is very interesting to me, especially because I struggle with motivation mostly during the summer. I don’t know, maybe I easily associate summer with vacation and therefore winter with work and productivity. Also, summer here gets extremely hot and sometimes unbearable, and I love the cold instead ahaha. So, to see someone else’s perspective on this season, which is completely different, is very interesting. Nice tips and love your videos!:)

  • I love this Kalyn! �� Thanks so much for sharing! I get the seasonal blues and I will definitely be using these tips. I feel newly inspired to read more feel-good books, keep up my fitness routine, make plans with friends, and create a dance routine I’ve been wanting to start with one of my pals ����

  • Throughout the day, stop and take notice of what you’re doing, eating, thinking, etc. Ask yourself what your life would look like if you did, ate, thought that thing 1000 times. If you’re eating unhealthy food, imagine your health and body after eating it 1000 more times. If you spend a day binge watching unproductive YouTube videos, what would your mental state be if you spent 1000 more days like this. Likewise, if you’re watching a video like this, imagine how motivated you’d feel if you watched 1000 just like it. Or exercised 1000 times. And so on.

  • Can you please activate the subtitles on your Koze Channel??
    English is not my mother language so I still have to read what you say to fully understand! Thanks a lot!!

  • I cried while watching. I just realized those videos used to motivate me but don’t anymore. I have absolutely no energy and a thousand things to do. Like how can I make it through winter? I’m so down right now… I’m sorry for being so disgustingly negative.

  • One thing is for me very important. Temperature!
    Find out what temperature is your comfort Zone!��️
    For me it’s 22°C.
    For example….Sometimes this is a little too cold. Than I now I haven’t nurish myself enough with the right food.
    When Im feeling uncomfortable…or even nervous Often the temperature is just a little to high for me.
    Im a very sensitive human so 1-2°C makes the very difference for me.

    Im sure you heard about it but have you try to sleep in cooler temperature?

    Another thing is humidity.
    Just google what is healthy!��

    Give it a try to really trust your body and let your mind fix it!

  • Why am I more motivated in the winter lol?
    I get seasonal depression in the summer ���� Fallwinter MY FAVES
    Personally I do my “spring cleanings” in December (before the new year) and in May when I’m done with school��

  • Midwest winter sucks. It gets dark at 4:30. Im from Indiana, but Im willing to bed Canadian winter sucks more. Always willing to take winter advice from a Canadian.

    I go tanning in the winter. The sun lamps don’t work for me. I’ve tried them.

  • As a dancer, I’d just like to say that you’ve totally nailed the essence of what dancing should be about.
    I’ve been feeling in a rut lately in my personal life and also in my dance career, and you’ve reminded me of the importance of enjoying this beautiful gift that moving our bodies is ❤️

  • My favourite water addition is lemon I start the day with hot lemon and keep adding to it all day even though I actually like just plain tap water!

  • Wow, Excellent video��. I feel motivated and inspired. What’s the name of the other speaker in the middle of this video?? The one who says; “build for the long term guys..”

  • in Australia we get the “summer blues”…. 3 weeks of mid 30 celcius temps after xmas have me cracking beers in the shed every arvo rather than going riding….beers bike beers bike…um beers again…

  • Wow I didnt realize I was already doing this. Im changing my whole life around at the moment. New job, going back to school to finally get my bachelors and working out and training. I knew it was going to to take awhile to complete my goals so my first goal for the first 6 months was just to create a good routine aka good habits. Hope I can stay on track.

  • I’ve always wanted go start working out but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I hate exercise in general, not just in the winter months. And even though I want to live a healthy lifestyle, something’s always stopping me from it.

  • Shout-out to Kalyn for not having up and moved to LA in her success so this Minnesotan has some relatable winter tips ❤️ stay dope, goddess

  • Winter is my favourite Season. Yeah, I don’t like that the days are shorter, but going out in the snow is so beautiful, everything is peaceful and quiet. I just feel so zen and calm.

  • I’ve definitely learnt to love Winter over the last few years, I used to hate it… Now I live in Marrakesh, and the weather is only just getting Autumnal (by comparison to French or English weather for instance)… We had two days of rain last week and I was ecstatic while when I lived in London, the rain could really be pain sometimes! It’s really a lot about perspective and learning to appreciate what we have right now rather than longing for what could be, or what is to come:) Life works in cycles, in seasons, and that is true for all areas of it! ��

  • love this video!!! one of my favorite quotes is this: “if you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snow.” love you kalyn <3

  • Day off tomorrow so I’m off to Plumpton in Sussex for an off road adventure! Cheers for the encouragement! 46 and just starting! ����

  • This is hands down my favorite video you have ever made! And I’ve been following you for YEARS! thanks for the inspiration as always! Lot of love from a fellow canadian! Xx

  • This video is exactly what people need now a days. I just posted my first video called ‘Show love’ just some more positive vibes. Everyone gotta stay up together. It’s up to you. Be optimistic about a new day and a new experience����

  • This video is about 33 minutes and on your corresponding podcast is 42 minutes long. Did you include 9 minutes of ads in your podcast? Honestly, that is kinda crazy I’m not going to listen to that! Get your coin but be realistic for Santas sake..

  • Yes, the reward system today though scientific, needs to be rethought about so as to check the anxiety and depression effects it comes along with as in a whole package!

  • I woke up early this Saturday morning and it was still dark out. But the sky was clear and I decided to go on a sunrise run with the podcast version of this in my headphones. It was wonderful, with a colourful sky reflecting in the snow on bare branches and frost on the grass, and I felt really, really happy. You’re right, winter can be lovely.

  • I got to see ur videos cuz I need them, but now I just continue to watch them because I like to even if I don’t need ���� xoxo ❤
