Whether it’s smoking, drinking too much alcohol or fizzy drinks or even sneaking in too many sweets. Why not try dedicating the rest of this month to breaking a bad habit and see what impact it has on your health.
By taking a pause, not only do you improve your health but it also makes you aware of your ability to self discipline, helping to reduce temptations that may get in the way of your goals.
I personally want to put a pause on having a late night cup of tea so that I can sleep better and feel more refreshed in the morning. What will you try?
By performing exercise for up to 30 minutes 5 days a week you are helping to reduce your risk of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and musculoskeletal problems to name a few.
If you’re unsure where to start, taking a brisk walk whilst slowly increasing the distance is considered to be beneficial.
Try to incorporate muscle strengthening exercises such as light weights, lunges or squats as this keeps your muscles and bones strong and healthy.
We are fortunate to have access to free community gym machines with a world class view of the beach. So if you’re passing one by, give it a go. 💪
Take care and stay healthy 😘

Who felt happy that after leaving school or university you never had to ‘learn’ again?
I remember this exact feeling until I realised that in reality we never stop learning. From job experience, to self-directed study or even watching YouTube videos we are constantly absorbing information.
Continuing to learn throughout life has many benefits, such as improving your confidence, fighting boredom and keeping your brain active and sharp which has been shown to help reduce the risk of memory issues such as Dementia later in life.
