In our insta-world, life is a bombardment of messages about looks. That's a big risk for mental health. It's Mental Health Awareness Week. Time to #bebodykind
Body image and self-esteem are a big part of mental well-being. Mental Health Awareness Week has got us thinking about how to achieve a healthy life balance.
Never been on a retreat? There are many different types of retreat. The key is getting quiet time for yourself. Slowing down. Restoring mind, body and soul.
Makeup. Never leave the house without or never bother? Most women and some men are somewhere in between. Whatever, we need to look after our skin in the gym.
Sleep. Study. Stress. The life of a student is demanding. Try this instead: Sleep. Study. Hussle. So you can stay alert and ready to nail that dissertation.
Don’t settle for a handful of sugary cereal. Hussle so you can have a cheap, nutritious breakfast with minimum effort. And still have time for the gym
that's good re rice cakes, where I would PREFER to eat the packet! No problem avoiding those! I think there are some good cereals but it takes some seriousl label reading to avoid a coating of sugar.
If I saw someone wiping down equipment with disposable wipes I think I would go and offer them my towel to make it easier anyway (plus obvious environmental reasons!)
If you take up yoga you will become much more aware of your posture and this is enough to make you notice when you're slouching. It doesn't have to be yoga, maybe pilates or something similar might do the same thing, but I always notice if I'm slouching when using my phone and I think it's my awareness of good posture that does it.
My solution is to set a tracker to alert me to how much time I'm spending on my phone. The shock of that alone was enough to stop me picking it up to check things all the time.
part of the problem is that phones are getting bigger again! How we laughed at the 90s movies with people carrying 'carphones' the size of a brick; but if we're not careful we will be back there!
I think I've got some clingfilm in a drawer - but I now use the boxes and it is so much easier as well as less wasteful. I'm batch cooking about once a week now, makes a big difference after a long day when dinner is ready to reheat.
I've always had supper around 9pm throughout my life and never had any issues. I eat at 5pm with the kids so just get hungry again. I can't underestand how people can manage to last until 8pm for their evening meal after eating lunch at 1.
I agree it's much easier when they're younger. But I'm sure if we instill the habit in these early years and give them a love of activity, they 'll be more likely to enjoy them throughout their teenagehood too.
I would also say that we although plastic bag use has plummeted, we should really follow the example of other places such as New York which have officially banned all plastic bags. There is no need for it. If you forget to take a bag, you'll remember next time!
as Michael says - most of us won't want to give up our hard-earned trip to somewhere warm (especially given the weather today!). But I think these small changes do make a difference when 70 million people get behind these ideas. Plastic bag use has plummeted - we can do this!
I'm making the most of the primary years when there's no need to push them to get moving! We have an outdoor gym in our nearby park and weather permitting it is just the trick for all of us.
having older children now, I realise how simple it was back then to get them active by doing family things. When they gt to be 'tweenagers' it's not nearly so easy, as walks are 'boring' and most of the activities they want to do cost loads of money"
we should be avoiding wipes due to eco concerns; and certainly not flushing them, London's sewers are suffering! I imagine a mat is quite hard to sterilise, but I was always told the key thing is hand washing. Do that before eating or touching eyes/face and the bugs won't get in.
Whatever happens, I make sure I do on tabata-style workout each week. That covers for me, so I dont need to count minutes of anything else.
Still using up the last of clingfilm i bought last year. I shan't ever buy any more.
I have never seen anyone take any antiseptic wipes to the gym and I think over-sanitising the gym is an impossible and pinntlss task Saying that, I don''t want to sit in a pool of someone else's sweat, so definitely take a towel and do the decent thing if needed.
Blimey, I'd never realised there were so many germs! Saying that, they're probably every public area we go. And it does all coming down to washing your hands. Problem solved.
Most people find it easy to eat leftovers and use reuseable bags. But when it comes to flying less and driving less - things that really limit lives - I really don't think people are going to embrace this so much.
love it - eco ideas that really work without a lecture! I do enjoy a trip to the pound-shop style places (you know the ones, with all the containers outside on the pavement) so I'll be getting a few long-lasting bags and boxes.
Am I unusual in not even having a gym bag? I just carry a water bottle and take my headphone and phone in with me. That's all I need. I shower at home by the way, so maybe that makes a difference1
nothing wrong with a carrier bag - saves a lot of cash for more interesting stuff! Let's set a new fashion!
I'd never thought about the chocolate in the evening also containing caffeine. That's a good point and cnd considering I can eat a 100g bar of dark chocolate quite easily an a Saturday evening might be why I sometimes then struggle to get to sleep!
I just tend to keep it simple and spend 45 minutes at the gym each time I go, which leaves 15 minutes for prep/shower etc. I find this works very well for me regardless of the type of workout I'm doing.
