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
it is easy to think 'it won't happen to me' - but it might. Anything that can reduce the risk has got to be worth the effort.
Dementia is very scary but it's so empowering to know that our lifestyle makes a difference. That's pretty incredible really. I really can't undersatnd why some people don't bother exercising. The benefits are continuously staggering.
SO much change in the fitness world. I can't imagine where we'll be in 2030/40/50...I reckon we'll all have immediate feedback on our body's chemicals and reactions to exercise so be able to tweak what we're doing to get the best results.
I haven't thought about working out from home via apps as being environmentally friendly before, but of course it's less travelling so should be encouraged.
using the power from the exercise bikes to power things is so obvious when you think about it! What a great concept.
Love the 'decade to save the planet' movement. Every business has a responsibility to make themselves as eco friendly as possible so hopefully more gyms will follow the eco example.
the ultra-central Covent Garden one isn't actually that pricey, so it is a shopping then spa day for me - love that bit of London at Christmas!
Sounds like a good suggestion for a Christmas present for myself!
some of these definitely come under the 'who knew?' category! I have to commute in between christmas and new year so will indeed be treating myself as a consolation.
I would say a good water bottle is worth spending extra on. But I'm gawping at the cost of that one!
Love the socks. You can tell you're getting older when you like getting socks for Christmas!
I definitely feel more tired and moody during my period so not so up for exercising. But because I know exercise makes me feel perky I do try and force myself to do something. but I don't feel so energetic.
I'm a bit surprised that it matters for those of us for whom periods are just an inconvenience (I realise that isn't everyone). I just carry on as normal with the usual, er, adjustments!
definitely, please, don't come to the gym if you are sneezing and coughing. The rest of us don't want your bug just so you can prove a point, thank you.
Hi Mark, that's very interesting. Neil Armstrong clearly had a strong 'life force' and I think that keeps you going just as well as exercise. Plus, that means my low heart rate will help me live longer so I am keen to agree with him. is there any scientific evidence for what he says, I wonder?
I've been reading Neil Armstrong's biography - he DID believe that we all get a limited number of heartbeats and wouldn't waste any on needless exercise! He lived to, what, 81...? (not that I recommend this but I did find it interesting!)
I am the proud owner of a low heart rate (58 bpm) and have been like this since I was a teenager. Do some people just have lower heart rates regardless of fitness?
The best solution is being a parent that enjoys physical activity. Then they inherit that tendency from you so you don't have to push them! if you don't like being active yourself you will just have to pretend you do to get them in the habit too.
right with you, Amber - I'm afraid school PE lessons can often be no fun at all for the non-competitive. Schools should now be moving away from traditional sport but boy is it taking time. All we can do is encourage out of school exercise so they know it can be fun.
it's all very well saying encourage them with PE, but when you have a child who hates sport but loves reading, it's very difficult!
Well that is very true Dan. I used to worry about my partner who wore headphones when cycling into work. Yes it was on cycle trails and the volume 'low' but I still felt it was risky somehow.
I would also say that whatever it is, don't block our your surroundings. I cycle on shared paths and runners who can't hear my 'excuse me' or 'hello' are a menace to both of us!
Those Aftershokz ones sound scary - conducting music through your bones?!! Shudder to think about it.
