At what age did you feel fittest?
At what age were you when you felt your fittest? Perhaps you feel that, through healthy living, you might still have that age to look forward to. Or maybe it seems to be a long time ago these days!
The British Heart Foundation recently asked people about when their optimum age was when it came to being physically fit and found that 26 came out as the age that most popular choice.
Some 39 per cent of people felt that eating healthily was what made them feel at their peak, physically. Meanwhile, 29 per cent cited gym attendance as the reason for this.
Brits were also questioned about cycling and walking, and on average said they covered 16 miles each week doing these things.
For ten per cent of the sample, real exercise wasn't something they had seen for more than a decade, according to their answers.
People put the blame for falling levels of fitness on things like working for longer in their offices – with 41 per cent citing this reason.
According to Nancy Prior, head of events at BHF: “We are leading increasingly busy lives and it can be difficult at times to prioritise physical activity with family and work commitments getting in the way."
She added that more than one in three British people had said they rate good health as being the top attribute to have.
She said that people should find the time to do physical activity regularly, as this would help to maintain the health of their heart.
Recently, Spire Bristol Hospital research discovered that, on average British people feel completely healthy and fit for only 61 days in a year.
And on average it was discovered that people were feeling 'run down' for two or more days each week.
In a finding that feels appropriate, given many people's feelings about the day, Monday was discovered to be the worst of the weekdays when it came to not feeling great.
"It’s surprising to see just how little of the year people consider themselves fully fit," commented Rob Anderson of Spire Bristol Hospital.
"If someone is plagued by a repeated problem they should talk to a healthcare professional to identify if it might be a symptom of something more serious."

- 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
