Breaking News: Activity Trumps Stillness

The biorhythms of individuals differ, and the way we function daily is driven by a variety of factors. Yet for everyone, it goes without saying that a good diet and exercise is critical to our overall health.

Maintaining a balanced lifestyle is a recipe for success, with health and wealth a perfect unity. Healthy, active employees take fewer sick days and bring more energy to the workplace, however it is the struggle of integrating regular exercise into a restrictive work environment that poses the ultimate challenge. Like trying to catch a butterfly, achieving the perfect balance can be impossible, but by making the right decisions, it could just land on your shoulder.

When reflecting on your own office, what percentage of staff can you truly say has struck this harmonious chord? Who receives a heady rush of daily endorphins? Whilst it is a personal struggle it can be facilitated by the employer through various techniques; Providing shower facilities, promoting the cycle to work scheme, allowing employees to exercise throughout the day, all these practices allow the individual to take exercise into their own hands. This is a beneficial practice as employees return to work refreshed and focused, and after all, it is exercise that gives your imagination wings!

When we exercise the body releases chemicals called endorphins, which interact with the receptors in our brain, and a recant study done at the University of British Columbia found that regular aerobic exercise boosts the area of the brain involved with memory. In addition to this exercise improves mood and sleep, and reduces anxiety and stress, which are all factors that contribute to cognitive impairment.

The health benefits of an active lifestyle, from every perspective, lie bare before our eyes, with positive impacts on work, and mental health. From employee to employer everyone must take up the baton in encouraging this basic human need. Movement melts stress, and its time we all got a bit more comfortable with being uncomfortable. As Baz Luhrmann aptly said, ‘The race is long, and in the end, its only with yourself’.

Stretch,

And enjoy your body, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

Obscurities of the modern diet – #work #life #balance

The temperatures are rising and the UK is threatening to show signs of summer, albeit intermingled with heavy rain and dense clouds. Whilst 12% of gym subscriptions are made in January, now is the time where panic strikes and the gym becomes crammed with those trying to rid themselves of that winter coat that should have gone by now, but has outstayed its welcome.

No doubt a ‘healthy lifestyle’ is a phenomenon that has reared its head in recent years, certainly a positive, but it seems that simplicity by way of approaching it has gone out the window, and like all trends, has been exploited. A simple diet and exercise is no longer the answer, but superfoods and substitutions are charging forwards, monopolising the snack market. Last year popcorns sector outperformed the entire market, and rose by 40%, with brand such as Walkers taking a hit of nearly 5% in relation to previous years.

It is undeniable that we are all warriors of food faddism to some degree, and even the sanest of us are willing to pay £4 for a green juice from Pret-A-Manger in a hope it will ‘detoxify’ us on a Monday morning, after a heavier-than-intended weekend. Yet it seems that in London, a microcosm of the worlds cuisine, the diet fads have moved on from the Atkins pure protein hype and taken a turn for bizarre and obscure, a juxtaposition to the burger craze that has also taken London by storm, is there perhaps a link?

Juicing certainly comes up top, with the laymen abusing their small morning orange juice and substituting a medley of juiced fruit and veg for their meals. Lo and behold they begin gaining weight due to the high sugar content, and a vicious cycle is created.

Hippeas is an example of the obscure, a brand with a unifying slogan ‘Power to the PEAple’, they are a snack with a chickpea base, allegedly good for you, with all the buzzwords: Gluten Free, Organic and Vegan, and moreover supposedly ‘Good for the Earth’ (I might highlight that broccoli is also good for the Earth, and doesn’t require an excess of energy for packaging amongst other things).

An example that enters into the bizarre is the Detox Tea fad, perpetuated by brands such as TeaTox and BooTea. These are essentially overpriced laxatives, with diuretic qualities due to the high level of caffeine which in turn causes dehydration and ensures the onset of side effects that are usually likened to a virus.

Whilst competition is key to a growing economy and healthy alternatives can only be a step in the right direction I would implore you to consider what you are buying. Trying to maintain a balanced diet? What happened to a good old banana to satisfy your afternoon slump? Whilst some foods can be healthy alternatives, the majority of these snacks are pumped with sugar and salt, and hiding behind a veil of gluten free and suitable for vegans. The myth that no one wants us to know is that the human body is perfectly capable of detoxing itself and does not require the burden of help. On occasions if you crave that unhealthy snack, just eat the mars bar, moderation is everything.
