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.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
