We would all like to feel like a superhero, you know all powerful and able to conquer the world and by increasing your intake of purple foods you can actually give your wellbeing a serious boost.
We’re two weeks into the New year so life should be settling back down into routine, and ( I hope) you now have time to think about your health and wellbeing. Making changes to one’s health and wellbeing can seem daunting if it has been a while, or indeed if you feel you’ve tried everything and it’s just not working and that’s where I come in. I want to help you be THE BEST YOU CAN BE so join me and let’s take this journey together.
Have you ever put the word 'Pilates' into google images and viewed what comes up? You'll be presented with endless photos of beautiful young women doing all kinds of gymnastic and acrobatic Pilates movements which is amazing to see but that's NOT what the originator, Joseph Pilates created it for. No, he was convinced way back in the 1940's that we were moving into an increasingly stressful world and that we all needed to devote far more attention to our fitness and wellbeing no matter what our age. And let's face it, we are all going to spend a lot more time being older rather than younger! Youth is fleeting and once we get past our thirties the wear and tear of an ageing body begins to take it's toll. And that's nothing to get worried about, it's just life, so what can we do?
This is the time of year when our thoughts turn to changing old habits and getting fitter and healthier. Inevitably, post the Christmas excesses I see an influx of new clients eager to lose weight, shape up and get fit for the New Year, and equally within 6-10 weeks many of them will have slipped back into old habits; missing classes or sessions because of work, children, not feeling well and generally feeling they don't have the time needed to do it. Why does this happen year on year I wonder? I think it's because we set our expectations way too high and when we don't reach those impossible heights, we simply give up.
