Living a healthy lifestyle can come at a cost, but we need to think of it more as an investment into our current and future self. We need to invest our time and money into keeping ourselves healthy starting now. Don’t wait until it’s too late to start trying to make a difference.
Not all the investments need to be costly though. Investing in your health could be making sure you get a good night sleep each night, getting outside and going for a walk to de stress and exercise, or making healthier foo
We seem to get hung up on the idea that we need a good chunk of time set aside to exercise, or an intense fitness class booked in the diary. Whilst this would be ideal, it’s not always possible and we need to remind ourselves that this is ok.
The good news is that setting aside as little as 10minutes each day can benefit out health and wellbeing. It will help reduce our stress levels, get our heart rate up and motivate us to make healthier nutritional choices.

But the good news is quite a few gyms/personal trainers are offering free classes or training programmes on Instagram or Youtube! There is something for everyone - and most don’t need any equipment - so no excuses not to give it a go!
Exercising is not only important for your physical wellbeing - but also for your mental health. During these uncertain times, it’s easy to feel more stressed and anxious. Exercise can help you destress and get you focused on keeping fit and healthy.
If you weren't following a training programme before the lockdown- now is the perfect opportunity to get started. Trying getting the whole family involved!
Another year come and gone in the blink of an eye and what a year 2017 has been! Now is an important time to sit back and reflect on the passed year. Think about all the things you have achieved and all the people (and animals for me) that have made an impact on your life this year and the impact to you have made on theirs.
