Tips to live a healthier life
We all know that exercise can improve our mood and our health. That is why most of us go to a particular gym or sign up for a class like Pilates, Spinning, Box fit, you name it. Mine is swimming, I love to disconnect from everything and spend an hour swimming non-stop to quiet my mind. Yes, 90 times out of a 100 I do it more for my mental health that for my physical health.
I like the gym, and going is a great way to recharge the batteries especially if your job is to do something for a few hours in front of a computer. But since I started running a few years ago, I discovered the joys of just walking/jogging/running outdoors or even better in nature.
For those of you who are thinking about starting a treatment or have been already through one, it is very important to start with the right mindset and thinking about ways to better cope with a process that is already quite overwhelming for most people.

Hi friends,Hormones are very well known by all of us. As a woman, you get to hear it at around the time of your period, as far as we…
I am back talking about Endometriosis, yes with a capital letter as this is not just any illness. Those of you that have endometriosis, or know someone that has endometriosis know this well, that this illness is defined and treated differently depending on the doctor that sees you. As nobody knows why this illness appears, why some women have worst symptoms, and it has not been determined scientifically why some women develop it and why some others don’t , many doctors decide to simply ignore it as a contestant for what it may be happening to you.
These last two weeks have been a mix of many things and I am still doing this challenge and learning more things about how I understand food.
One of the things I am noticing after 4 weeks doing this challenge is that the ‘crazy need for really rich foods’ is fading away. By this, I don’t mean that I don’t ever think about it but that I don’t have it in my mind 24/7 and that it is becoming increasingly easier to just say NO. I read a book a long time ago about the power of habit and I guess this has a lot to do with it. I have also realized how big is the role of stress in any diet.
It’s been two weeks since I joined Weight Watchers and it has been a complete roller coaster! I decided to register because I wanted to loose a few kilos and I thought that the weekly monitoring would motivate me to lose more and faster. I was entirely sure that I had the nutrition factor completely handled and that I just needed some group motivation. But the first week I even put weight on!! It turns out that I actually learned a few things about some of the foods I was having and this has been quite the revelation! This is going to be an ongoing series where I will share my progress through the program and the lessons I learned along the way. Stay tuned!
This is the time when the days are getting colder and the nights are getting longer. It seems like it does not matter what we do as we tend to feel extremely tired every year around this time. Wouldn’t it be great if we got to this time of the year and we got more energetic? or we wanted to get out all the time? and had lots of energy all day?
Many of us wonder about this and I have noticed that there are certain things that we can, and we should do to get more energetic in these winter months. A few small changes here and there in the habits will completely improve our energy levels, so let’s get on with it!.
