Ryan talks about the importance of sleep. We're halfway through the 4 Week Challenge and I hope you have been able to make a positive change to your lifestyle. In my health talk earlier this month I discussed a few topics including eating habits, foods to eat, training and sleep. A good night's sleep is so important and I suggested 6-8 hours is ideal and to refrain from the electronics in your room. A few podcasts that you can listen to, to help find the right sleep routine for you can be found here.



New year new you, as 2019 has already begun, most people would have set new year resolutions and goals, but if you are like most people, you’ll make them only to break them, within a few months. In 2018, the two most common resolutions, where eating healthier and doing more exercise. Here are some tips to stay on track as the year progress. 1. Make a meal plan It's much easier to eat well if you have all the ingredients at hand. Make a meal plan for the week and do it as a family, so everyone feels involved. Then do one big shop (or shop online if you're pushed); this saves time during the week and solves that 'what do we eat tonight?' decision each day. 2. Stick it out One Wellness report done in 2009, says on average it took participants 66 days on average to form a new habit. So, what’s important is setting a long-term goal to help you curb your impulses as well as keep from getting discouraged. 3. Get a training partner The best aspect of training with someone is that your partner provides instant accountability. We’ve all been in a situation where we know we need to work out, but one of several excuses has got the better of us and we've skipped the gym. Making plans with a training partner makes it much harder to cancel a workout as you know you’ll be messing up their plans too. Imagine all the extra progress you would have made just over the course of the past 12 months if you'd never missed a workout!
