On the 1st of May PayAsUGym changed name. Rebranding and renaming a business is a serious decision to make. Here are my thoughts on this long important process
When you Hussle your life is full of action and momentum. But as great as it feels to Hussle, don’t underestimate the importance of recovery days.
While exercise makes our bodies look great, there’s also a less obvious benefit: a beauty boost. How active you are directly affects your complexion and hair.

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.
I would say the best thing I have ever bought are my Apple earbuds. No leads, no hassle, feel comfy, great sound - I would recommend them to anyone.
I have always delighted in an unread book. E readers are fine, but proper pages just still have that 'something' - and are lower risk for reading in the bath, the ultimate in relaxation!
interested that 'The Martian' was mentioned; I discovered it late but I haven't read such an enthralling page turner in years. Books like that really do take you away from it all. Millions of miles away in this case!
the e-library is an absolute game changer for me, I can load up my ereader with books at any time and they never go overdue, they just disappear! When the kids are past the baby stage we'll be going to the real library, but in the meantime it is the only chance I get to borrow books.
I agree that reading can be the same as meditation in the way that it stops you thinking about things. But in the same way, escaping into a book enables you to avoid uncomfortable feelings that meditation can help you face. So I wouldn't say it's a good substitute. But good in its own right.
I love reading but have definitely found the internet has sapped my time for reading books. There's always so many things to 'check' and 'research' online. Nothing beats getting into a good book and the satisfaction of finishing something that's complete, rather than a random blog post.
A banana sandwich is the best thing you can have before a workout in my opinion. Simple and effective.
'appetite is the sauce', as grandpa used to say - nothing is tastier than the post workout snack!
This sort of article does encourage me to go swimming but it's just a shame we have to pay extra for it at my gym. I wish more gyms would include it in their membership
that's interesting that you need more carbs than protein after a high intensity workout. Why is that? I thought you would need moree protins to build all that muscle. And why fruit? Shows how little I know!
One of the most enjoyable things about working out is the feeling that you 'should' eat something within an hour - not something you are normally told!!
I completely agree with the mental break aspect of swimming. I put on waterproof earphones and really get away from it all.
Nothing beats cold water swimming when it's hot weather like today. The feel-good factor you get is amazing
I've noticed more people wearing sunhats nowadays which is great, especially when you have toddlers who refuse to wear one so you can point out all the other people who do!
Id never really thought about the importance of getting natural light during the day, I do get some, but maybe not enough, so definitely food for thought
I do the cold water at the end of a shower and it makes me feel good and freshens me up. I would also recommend doing a few moments of mindfulness meditation when you wake up.
I learnt to turn the phone off the hard way - people really do think nothing of texting at stupid o'clock, do they? Too much faff to put it on silent, so it stays in the living room and I spent a fiver on an alarm clock. Job done.
Another fan of apps here, though I would recommend Insight meditation which is free and just as good. Mindfulness is a definite stress reliever and seems to slow everything down.
I used the Headspace app last year and it starts you on just 10 minutes mindfulness a day. The reviews are amazing so you gotta be daft not to at least try it.
The best thing to do is learn mindfulness and then try as best you can to incorporate it into your everyday life so you are doing it when you do things like washing up and having a shower. So it takes no more time but has the same effect.
I tend to be very cynical about this kind of thing; but as the stuff to do piles up maybe it is time for a rethink. So I will give it a go!
