Simple tricks to exercising more
The summer holidays are fast approaching and for those of you looking to get away, now is a crucial time to stick to a healthy living plan, so that you look and feel your best while away.
With not much time left, a drastic change to your exercise or eating habits may not be the healthiest way to get in shape, meaning exercising little and often could be a lot better for you.
But how can you incorporate more exercise into your daily routine?
If you’re already used to doing cardiovascular exercise, then you could try complementing it with yoga.
All you need is a yoga mat and a little bit of space and it could help you to tone up and wind down after exercising.
It is also recommended for improving flexibility and muscle strength, according to fitness guru, Laura Williams.
Ms Williams suggests that "literally from the moment you wake up think about it, including small exercises and activities throughout the course of the day, every day".
This helps extra movements fit into your daily routine and can be anything from squatting while brushing your teeth or walking circuits around the kitchen while you wait for the microwave to ping or the TV ad break to finish.
The more space you have, the more adventurous you can be, doing a few push ups, tricep dips or even skipping when you get a spare moment.
Don’t take the easy option
The main thing to take away from adding more exercise into your normal routine is not taking the easy option.
If you want to achieve results you need to be switched on to this, meaning that rather than taking the lift you walk up and down the stairs and instead of using public transport you walk where possible.
Ms Williams advises that you could even "ditch the trolley at the supermarket and take two baskets around" instead, helping to work your biceps as you wander round the aisles.

- 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
