Exercise can shift fat. It changes the way our muscles behave. The exciting news is and fat can also have a beneficial effect on our bodies when we exercise.
Regular gym going really is the key. I signed up in my twenties and went sporadically according to how motivated I felt. Now as a more disciplined thirty-something I stick to a regular routine and the results pay off.
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.
the student stories look to be true.... my regret is that I didn't take more advantage of the sports available. It was all sold as the team games which aren't my style, but there was so much more. Oh well - making up for it now!
I cringe to remember what I ate at university. I lived on tinned tuna and pasta, and pretty much no other protein or veg. And beer.
I remember living on supernoodles and adding lots of vegetables to it. I thought I was being very healthy!!
'pot snacks and alcohol' - yep, there's always one who appears to survive on nothing else! (not me, I should add!). There is an urban legend of student scurvy due to this kind of diet.
oh yes, tell me about it with kids and sleep - I'm promised that you can't ever get teenagers out of bed, can't wait!!
Getting enough sleep is tricky when you've got a toddler. I just hope the negative health effects don't last long-term.
Learning new things and having new experiences is something I am definitely doing more of in my 40s. I think you just reach that age when you realise life is running away with you and you want to live it!
guilty as charged - my mates and I are shockers for meeting up and then just paying attention to our phones. This is ridiculous and I'm going to show them this article. We will change!
My little treat of chocolate has become a nightly habit. Though I do vary it with biscuits too. But I guess I should really make it once a week rather than once a day!!
I agree that 'cheat' is in the same category as the infantile 'naughty' when it comes to food, and fosters some bad attitudes. It is food. Eat it. Enjoy it. Not too much.
I still think cheat or treat day is encouraging a psychologically damaging attitude to food. You should really moderate everything and maybe have a treat every day but then not for a while, just come and go with your lifestyle and what you feel your body needs.
Drink lots of water and cut out sugar and bread - that makes all the difference.
hate to say it, but unusual levels of bloating that don't go with diet changes are a big health red flag. Women should never ignore this - the guidelines are to get to the doctor if it lasts longer than 3 weeks.
I like the attitude of treat not cheat. I also like the fact that our muscles need a treat too - what a great way of thinking!
it's the little things you do that can make a difference to your mental health. So making sure you get away from screens every lunchtime (depending on your job) and walking to work makes me feel much brighter.
I have found that making eating well and exercising a priority makes all the difference to my mental health. If I feel physically good, the mental good stuff follows more easily....
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.
