How many times have you decided to make a major change to your life, only to be scuppered almost instantly by your old habits? It’s not really your fault. Habits are formed over time and are incredibly difficult to break. The very nature of a habit ensures you find yourself doing it before consciously thinking…

Contributed by Angela Bates, Registered NHS Dietician Losing weight can be hard work.  If it was easy, no one would be overweight. In theory it seems so simple: eat less, move more = weight loss.  However, we are human beings with thoughts and feelings.  We are often trying to juggle family, friends, work commitments and…

Sometimes we’re not where we need or want to be. This fake-positivity has come,…

A lot of the PT profession spends more time trying to impress you with their knowledge, than getting you results. I’m not anti-science, not by a LONG shot. But you have to realise that most people do not care about their valgus knees, their inactive medial glute and their kyphotic tendencies. As a PT, yes,…

Suggest to people that keeping an eye on their bank balance might be a good idea, and no-one bats an eyelid. You know; just make sure enough is coming in to match everything going out. Check your balance once a week or so. We all know if we don’t pay attention, we spend more than…
