6 TIPS TO KEEP MOTIVATED ON YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY

6 TIPS TO KEEP MOTIVATED ON YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY

If you’ve started a new workout and fitness regimen, you will need to find a way to stay motivated. Many people give up their fitness habits as motivation fades, and holding onto that original level of commitment can be very tough. Here is a quick post sharing six tips to keep motivated on your fitness journey.  SIX TIPS TO KEEP MOTIVATED ON YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY Set goals and be specific. Specific objectives are much easier to aim for, as you can properly track your progress. For example, instead of aiming to ‘run more’, set a goal to run a certain distance or train for a race. Aim to complete a certain number of pullups, or lift a certain weight. Keep your goals achievable, but a challenge. An unrealistic goal can lower motivation as much as one that is too easy.

WINTER DIETARY TIPS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

WINTER DIETARY TIPS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

When the temperature drops and the days become shorter, it gets harder to maintain a healthy weight and stay generally healthy. The struggle is because our serotonin levels drop and our bodies start to crave it from food instead of getting it from sunlight. You can overcome this dynamic by getting serotonin from exercise instead and eating light herby food to support your system. Below are some winter dietary tips to help you through.  EAT ONE MEAL-SIZED SALAD PER WEEK In the winter there is not the same variety of fruits and vegetables available in the shops. You have two options. You can switch your vegetable intake to root vegetables or work a bit harder to get the same nutrients.  When you eat one meal-sized salad per week, you win on both counts. It means you guarantee the rarer vegetable nutrients and eat them regularly enough to feel their benefits.  MAKE A VEGGIE-RICH SOUP ONCE PER WEEK Staying Healthy in winter is as much about eating at the right times as it is about eating the right things. You can create the perfect healthy diet plan by thinking ahead and preparing your meals.  If you make a large veggie-rich soup… View Post
HOW DOES OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM (ACTUALLY) WORK?*

HOW DOES OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM (ACTUALLY) WORK?*

The public healthcare system in the UK, known as the NHS, is widely considered one of the world’s best. However, the flaws are becoming increasingly evident. Let’s stress; this is not because of the incredible people working for the NHS. They work long, long hours, and do an amazing service for our country. It’s the system itself that has flaws. The waiting lists are extensive, and patient demand is far too high concerning resources and the number of doctors and nurses available. Because of this, an increasing number of people are turning towards international health insurance instead. So, how does our healthcare system actually work? WAITING TIMES The NHS waiting lists are astronomical at present. You may find yourself waiting weeks, and even months for the treatment you require, primarily if it is not related to COVID. Many people are even opting to have a private COVID test because of the speed associated with this. Patients find themselves waiting weeks for a scan, and then they have to wait weeks for the results, and then they must wait weeks again for the necessary treatment. It makes the whole process extremely lengthy, which means that individuals can be worried and in a… View Post

Millions of Americans – and indeed, people worldwide – have been ordered by their employers to work from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Is there anything you can do and what should your employer be doing to ensure that you are safe at work? Here, we look at some of the things that your boss should and could be doing to keep you safe at work during the pandemic. GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK REMOTELY This is an ideal solution. Obviously, this is not possible in all workplaces or all jobs, but if there is a way that you can work remotely, even for some of the time, your boss must allow you to. Not only does this stop you from mixing with other people in the workplace, but it also reduces the number of people using the subway, buses, trains, and other forms of public transport – all places where the virus can spread easily.
