Unless you’re preferred method of moving your body is walking or running, and where you live happens to be nice and sunny most of the time, you’re probably feeling pretty limited on what you can do to stay active. Jumping jacks? Pace your house while you talk to Grandma? Whatever works, am I right? […]

Monthly Goal Intention – May is for Macros!

A big reason I started this practice of setting a monthly goal intention was to hold myself accountable to learning, growing and bettering myself all year long, not just at the beginning of the year for like 30 days or until I got distracted by a million other things that life throws at us. I […]

Breath of Life- Suggestions for Conscious Healthy Breathing

Correct breathing means you breathe in a way that is physiologically optimal for your body. It’s the way you were designed to breathe, only you were never taught how to. Over time, stress causes our muscles to tighten up and our respiration rate to quicken. Most of us become thoracic breathers, using only the middle and upper parts of the lungs. The path to better breathing is just a breath away. Luckily, changing your breathing habits isn’t all that complicated. All you have to do is adopt the following five simple principles, and you’ll be sure to make the most out of the 25,000 breaths you take every day:

Benefits of Going For A Long Walk Daily- How Far and How Long

How long should you walk, and how often?

So you’re convinced. It’s time to take up a daily walking routine. But how long should you walk and how often? It depends on what you want to achieve. To decrease health risks such as heart disease, you need to exercise at a moderate level for 30 minutes at least four days a week. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you need to get on the treadmill and stay there for 30 minutes. Researchers have found that it’s the total time spent exercising daily that matters, even if your 30 minutes is split up in 10-minute increments throughout the day. Walking is the perfect form of exercise to split up this way. If you live close enough, take a short walk to work. Walk over to a friend’s house instead of driving. Those small increments of walking add up.

Healthy Banana Oat Pancakes

t149

My go to ‘treat’ breakfast is pancakes, but since I’m on a journey of trying to reduce sugar intake as much as possible I really wanted to try and find a healthier alternative. Enter banana pancakes. I have to say I was slightly sceptical on how these would turn out, mainly around the texture. As it happens they are super delish, plus refined sugar free, dairy free and flour free.

Vitamin D, the Sunshine Vitamin

t138

Vitamin D is referred to as the sunshine vitamin because your body produces it naturally when your skin absorbs direct sunlight. Just 30 minutes per day of direct sunlight is enough to achieve this.
