    You’ve lost the weight, toned up and as a result, you feel fantastic. But the 50-million dollar question is – how do you keep the weight off? 

    One of the best methods I use is keeping a food diary. I plan my meals every weekend so I know what I am eating in the week and then write down every little thing that passes my lips. It’s all to easy to forget what you’ve eaten and how much, which is how those sneaky calories add up and result in weight gain.

    The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure but to avoid pain” - Aristotle

    Pain is everywhere, from birth to the grave we feel pain.  It is part of the sensation of life, it warns us, teaches us and it can destroy us.

    It's that time of year again and this is your year! You're going to lose that excess weight that’s been hanging around for like, forever. You're going to go to the gym every single day, no excuses...and eat nothing but lean meat, green vegetables and almonds. Great, that sounds good, but I'm sorry to say that's not the way to do it!

    “I can resist everything except temptation” - Oscar Wilde

    Life is a journey and as we move through it we have plans to progress and improve.  From the moment we open our eyes we are working on improving our lot.  We try hard to crawl then walk.  We insist on feeding ourselves and then learning to speak gabbling incoherently until eventually we are understood.

  • Stress and Burnout

    “Aaah that’s it I can't go on.  I’m angry, tired and cannot sleep. My sides ache, I fantasise about running away, leaving it all behind.  Hate meeting new people and the only way I can relax is with at least half a bottle of wine.  I need plenty of coffee to wake up and don’t feel hungry at meal times but I do love a bag of crisps down the pub.  And a kebab on the way home. 

  • Stress and Burnout

    Matthew Powell

    by Matthew Powell

    A Body Aware Specialist

    The link between stress and burnout is a linear one - stress can exist without burnout but burnout cannot exist without stress. Stress therefore, is the precursor, the forerunner if you will.

    When we are stressed our body is, in effect, on high alert and our senses over-engaged. It results in us becoming tunnel visioned and our ability to deal with multiple tasks is lost. This is a manageable, almost a symptomatic byproduct of our day and age, but if there is never any break to this stress, if it is prolonged and incessant, it will lead to burnout.

    By the time we have reached the month of March, we are all completely submerged in our busy lives with schedules, commitments, deadlines, dramas and our personal evolution; not to MENTION those quarterly bills looming somewhere in the background. Some of us may already be feeling overwhelmed, stressed and burnt out?  The first thing I want to say and remind you about is simple, please '"Take the time to: BREATHE - Consciously and deeply as you can". For something that we can live for only a few seconds without, we can do it so badly and this sustenance is totally free and available to us 24/7!  When we are anxious we can literally 'hold our breath', and how much better do you feel instantly after just a couple of 'deep breaths', note how your body responds immediately.

  • The Benefits of Weightlifting for Women

    Weightlifting Women at the gym and it's benefits


    Think of “weightlifting” and you picture muscle-bound strongmen straining under heavily- loaded barbells. As such, many women are put off lifting weights because they assume it'll make them bulky; the fact is that regular resistance exercises will create definition and strength, but stronger doesn't equal bigger for us females. Building and gaining muscle takes a great deal of dedication and it's actually very hard for women to bulk up - we simply don't have high enough testosterone levels.
