Exercise & Self Care

Too many of us make excuses as to why we can't exercise. Fact is, exercise helps make us happy on so many levels. Try to get a mix of cardio and also slower paced toning exercise like yoga/ pilates each week. Those who do the recommended amount of regular exercise are likely to be more happy with their bodies. Find what works for you- whether that is exercise alone or with company. Smoking is a no-no if you want to age well and to optimize your health. Be sensible in the sun if you want to slow down the signs of ageing (and help stay healthy). A regular massage or facial can be very beneficial for your well-being.

You don't need to give up the things you love but instead use the word 'balance' and 'moderation'. Make sure you eat lots of healthy foods, covering the recommend food groups e.g carbs / proteins etc and drink plenty of water to give your body (and skin) the best chance to serve you well. Cut down on the alcohol, processed foods, high-sugar intake and the Sat Fats. Help yourself and the planet by going Fair-trade for sustainability, organic to also help the environment (and for extra feel-good factor try going Vegan). Visit this website for more info:

Mindfulness / Spirituality

Start taking time to pause from the chaos of life- properly. Put social media and your emails on hold. Ensure you have time when you are 'disconnected' from the constant interruptions by technology. You can find contentment and peace from within which could radically alter your life going forward (in a good way!). You can even learn to love yourself 'flaws' and all! Mindfullness can even happen when you are exercising through a gentle jog, while weeding in the garden or through say Yoga. Visit this website for more info:
