As we creep into the thick of winter whilst living in restrictive circumstances due to COVID, it's more important than ever to explore the theme of mindfulness in your every day life.
It’s been a really tough year for so many people and as we head into the darker, longer nights of winter, whilst also being in the midst of Lockdown 2.0, naturally some of us might be concerned how this might affect our mental health or those around us.
During lockdown, lots - and we mean LOTS - of people took up running as well as home workouts and other at-home fitness activities.
During times of isolation, the upheaval to your everyday routines can play havoc on your mental health. Humans are social creatures and when we don't have frequent social interactions (and are stuck inside for most of the day), mental health can begin a steady spiral downwards.
If you, like us, were loving your workout routine pre-Covid19, this lockdown may have taken the wind out of your sails. Whether your 2020 goal was toning, weight-loss, muscle-build, or just to increase your fitness and stamina, you might be thinking you'll have to apply the brakes to those goals now.
When you’ve got your fitness routine nailed and have finally figured out what motivates you to workout, being put under lockdown can be a bit troublesome... especially if you find it hard to motivate yourself to workout at home.
Getting fit and healthy are the top new year resolutions for us all. A brand new year calls for a revamp of the body and mind, especially after the gluttony of Christmas. But did you know that out of the 4 million who joined the gym in January, 60% of hopefuls have canceled their gym membership by May?
Did you know that there are currently 1.3 million fewer women than men meeting the target of 150 minutes of physical activity per week?
