BLOG: Make Time for Yourself

I support many people in their health issues and a very common issue is that a lot of people have these days, have a lack of time they spend on themselves. Many mental health disorders such depression are much more common with people who don’t seek and hobbies and interests. When a person lacks these activities they often lose out in elements of friendships, support, conversation and socialisation and it makes it even harder to recover their state of mental health.

People who knows me, know that i work a lot of hours, but yet I still make time to fit leisure activities in my diary every week to ensure that my mind, body and spirit is well look after. My schedule includes running/HIT training daily, weights training, Music lesson, Yoga, Snowboarding, having my acupuncture session and massage for myself, and of course going for walks with my dog Inuki.

If you make the time there will be time to do things. Seriously no excuses please, if you value your health work on enjoyable things (not including TV…lol)

BLOG: Garden Project

Well this month I’ve been focusing on the garden project. Gardening is a wonderful way to de-stress and work the physical body.  Putting together another space such as the garden can help you enjoy the seasons for all its colour and transitions. I am building most of it myself so its expected to to take some time.

BLOG: Keeping Fit and Setting Goals

It is always good to stay fit and often setting goals is a good way to achieve it.  This month i switched my regular Insanity DVD workouts for marathon training.  My last half marathon i ran during the end of 2015 and I completed the race 2:25mins. This time i was determined to be under 2hours.

2016-05-04 19.27.10

Race day was amazing, the sun was out and the energy was lively and it was such a nice day out. I had carbed up the night before and was well hydrated on the morning. I made a custom phone holder with a sock as I had lost my last armband phone holder. It worked a treat! what ill do without YouTube lol.

The race itself was good but I was half questioning the route they chose as it wasn’t very scenic. The start was a bit chaotic, as the half marathon runners were all mixed in with the full marathon runners. I don’t think that was intentional. After 1-2 miles into the run quite a lot of people ran off to urinate in the bushes, both male and female. It didn’t half plant that thought in my head about needing to go myself. But i blocked it all out and just kept running. I noshed on a few jelly babies at the half way point and was doing well for hydration. I started speeding up on the last 2 miles to hopefully make my time. When the stadiums was in sight I started to sprint, thinking that the finish line was just inside. When I got into the stadium I was disappoint to find that I still needed do a lap around the pitch to the finish line. At that point I didn’t really have much steam left in me to sprint, so I just jogged to the finish line and claimed my shinny medal. It was great to make just make it under 2hours. So next time I think ill try the full marathon, keep you posted!

Keep Your Brain Young

2016-05-04 17.45.20Taking on new skills continually throughout life the brain builds new neurons and neuro-pathways and reduces the occurrences and development of brain degeneration. Simply put learning new skills every so often can help reduce disease like Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. So if you want to keep your brain young and sharp think about what new hobbies and skills you want to take on. I found that learning music is a great way to challenge the mind. Simply learning to read music engages the mind as its like a new language. The motion of playing an instrument promoted hand eye coordination and it’s very relaxing and rewarding on the body when you are achieving new skills.

BLOG: New Ways of Living 2016

I’ve just got back after a week of snowboarding in Arinsal-Andorra. The slopes in Arinsal and Pal were amazing plenty of lovely snow for skiing and boarding. The views from the top are amazing and breathtaking to say the least. It’s a great place to just be at peace with yourself but at the same time challenge oneself to perfect something.

2016-03-05 18.25.42

Starting from the end of last year I’ve really made it my mission to diversify my lifestyle incorporating structured breaks, holidays, fitness routine, and leisure/sports activities. I’m so glad that so far the year has transpired well.

This is what has happened so far and we are only in March:
-Started the year with a trip in Iceland
-Have been doing insanity DVDs daily for since I got back from Iceland.
-Started weekly session with a personal trainer.
-Had a new conservatory built and the clinic retiled.
-Had more body art “that’s leisure in a twisted way”
-Had a week out snowboarding.

So for the rest of the year my plans are:

-Take on monthly snowboarding development classes at Xscape
-Run another half marathon in May
-Triathlon in September
-Continue daily insanity DVDs
-Complete the tattoo project
-Do Masters qualification (sept)
-Break in Wales
-Summer BBQ open house
-Holiday in New Zealand or Australia (Nov)

Wow when you list out the things you plan to do in a year it sounds so much. But it just goes to show that if you set you mind to things, you do accomplish a lot. But rest assured I am still working in the clinic 5/6 days a week 10am-10pm, maximising all the time slots to fit as many clients in as possible.

Disruption and Sound Disturbance

Apologies to my clients as the treatments this week will be hindered by the sound of workmen in my garden. I’m currently having a conservatory built in my back of the house which might double up as a waiting area for the clinic in the future.2016-02-14 13.33.41

My plans are to completely redo my garden after the conservatory is built, and create a idyllic space to look into from the conservatory. The plan is to have some herbal tea in the side for those that have arrived early for their treatment. So let’s see if I can pull this off.

If you need some motivation to achieve your fitness goals you can find Lynn’s details on my contacts page.
