Tip 1: Be Bored

Drink more water join the 7 day Get Gorgeous water challenge www.get-gorgeous.com/healthy-tools

Research has proven that being bored is good for your health.  Whilst waiting for a chai latte, or standing outside waiting for your favourite Pilates class cultivate that feeling of being bored. Cambridge University watched brain activity whilst participants were bored playing card games that they were familiar with.  Going slower and downing a gear is essential for your health and will allow your brain to fulfil vital functions. Being bored is good for you. Read more here: Being bored is good for your health

Tip 2:  Practice Pilates

Pilates is a mind-body technique it is wonderful to rebalance your mind and your body after a long hard day in the office.  Pilates has revolutionised the way exercise has been taught so much so that its principles have been incorporated into all exercise programmes. Good posture and abdominal strength benefit everyone. Find out more about Pilates

Tip 3: Drink more water

Push out your caffeine addiction by adding in a new water habit.  Drinking up to 8 glasses a day will help keep you hydrated, focused and reduce stress on your joints. Most of us don’t drink nearly enough water, aim to drink around 2 litres or 8 x 250ml glasses of water.  Let me help you, join my free water challenge and I will motivate you in my 10-day water challenge

Tip 4:  Give up perfectionism

Being right all the time, having an ordered life, a long to-do list and goal setting may make you reach your dreams but at what cost?  Micromanaging your office, career, family and even your friendship groups can detract from your enjoyment of the day and your life. It can be embedded so deep into the female characteristics that is is hard to observe and step back from. Do you forgive others but not yourself? Read more about recovering from perfectionism

Tip 5: Express yourself more and eat less 

Feel your emotions don’t eat over them! A frustration, hurt and pain are stored in your body as physical weights and can cause you physical discomfort or even pain.  Women are better at concealing their frustration than men which in turn buries that emotion inwards, damaging your health and your self-esteem. Louise Hay believes that physical symptoms are merely tangible evidence of what is going on in your subconscious mind and gives you an indication of what you are really feeling deep inside.   Read more about Giving yourself permission to feel emotions – don’t eat your sadness, express it

Tip 6:  Practice Relaxation

Relaxation and Pilates go hand in hand, the mind-body discipline allows you to remove yourself from everyday worries and concerns and the physical effort helps you to concentrate on your body.  Develop the focus to switch off your daily thoughts as your mind listens intuitively to your body.  Join me for the next Pilates and meditation workshop in Topsham, Devon.

Tip 7:  10,000 steps a day

A study by the University of Leicester found that self-proclaimed slow walkers—regardless of sex—were around twice as likely to die of a cardiovascular malfunction than participants who considered themselves ‘brisk’ walkers.  Knowing how far you can walk in a day will motivate you. How many calories will you burn if you walk 10,000 steps a day? For example, if you are aged 45 and weighing about 11 stone you can burn around 400 calories by walking 10,000 steps briskly (3-5mph). Walk fast and improve your life

Tip 8:  Get more sleep

If you know the answer to this then you are probably able to let go of that worry and concern especially when you realise that you may have been aiming for too much sleep.

Tip 9:  Tidy Up!

Have you ever explored how clutter will affect your morale and your energy levels? Have you considered how mess can affect your brain space?   “Clutter stress”  is making you stressed and gain weight.

Clutter is a nagging reminder that your work is never done.   It then reinforces your negative self-talk that you are lazy or a procrastinator.  It’s a constant “should” hanging over your head, burdening you with guilt. 5 tips to reduce clutter
