Active Living Starts with you!

A healthy diet is THE place to start when making improvements to your health and lifestyle, but a healthy body needs exercise too.

Guidelines around the world differ, but at least 150 minutes a week (5x30mins) of moderate exercise, or 60 minutes of vigorous exercise, are the MINIMUM for healthy living and the prevention of many diseases.

As we age, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass (1% per year after the age of 40) and bone density, but we can offset this natural decline and build a body which lasts into older age by combining different forms of exercise with the correct diet.

Unhealthy eating habits – particularly in the western world – have led to increases in a range of diseases from heart disease to cancer, to diabetes. But an active lifestyle, alongside healthy eating habits, is proven to reduce your risk of many diseases. It doesn’t matter which activity you enjoy; it is about active living. This can include hiking, brisk walking, cycling, running or swimming. You just need to find one you will enjoy so that it remains part of your lifestyle. Sharing is caring, grab a friend and go for a walk or a run, this is much more enjoyable.

A healthy diet, combined with an active lifestyle, give you the best chance of a long and healthy life. There’s no one size fits all in fitness, find an exercise you enjoy to reach your goals.

I have always been active but find it best to join in with friends, much more fun this way. I have even made friends with the peacerunner, https://www.thepeacefulrunner.com/  from one of my favorite sports, running.”
