Include fun workouts in your healthy living drive
With exercise probably being the main aspect of healthy living that many individuals give up when the going gets tough, it might be worth getting stuck in to the latest fitness trends so that you’ll be motivated by how much fun it is to work out.
According to Mary Comber, editor of Health & Fitness magazine, the biggest trend in exercise at the moment is for functional workouts that mimic the moves we do in everyday life.
"After all, what’s the use of having beautifully toned arms if you can’t run for a bus or lift a heavy suitcase with ease? The goal has shifted from simply looking good to getting fit for your daily life," she explained.
She explained that many gyms are now focusing on providing exercise programmes that promote core strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance, and some are even removing their fixed static weights machines and replacing them with freestyle training zones where fitness fans can do floor exercise on Yoga mats.
Ms Comber also noted that the rising popularity of smartphones is having a big impact on the world of fitness, because people can access instant workouts, exercise advice and motivation through their fingertips.
"Exercisers are realising it’s not just about going to the gym - they can find something they like and can do at time that suits them, all at the touch of a button," she said.
"Gadgets including timers, GPS trackers and calorie counters are also great for keeping people motivated and excited about their workouts."
With this in mind, many individuals are quitting their gym membership and trying out lower-cost workouts that they can do in the comfort of their own home or round the local area. Lots of people are taking up running because all you need is a pair of decent trainers, while others are investing in workout DVDs or magazines so they can get fit in their living room.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
