Light breaks the dark
Heart races
Mind constructs imagery
Wits heighten
Imagination runs a mock
What awaits
What hastens our way
Is it for us
Dread takes over
Heart pounds



There are many obsticles put in the way of a healthier “You”. The hectic pace of life,family,work,illness,disability and many more. Health is ranked as one of the top priorities in many polls and debates on what people want and priorities of the majority.
  Who stops us from doing anything ? , I believe it’s down to self motivation and drive. This can be destroyed or diminished if we listen to others in society and take heed of press and the norm within social networks.
    Why do we allow this to happen to ourselves ? , too me it’s like self harm in that the bullying nature of demoralisation and pigeon holing sections of society and condemning  thier abilities. Then the press’s unrealistic image based formation of normalities preasures being told that these levels of society are this and that.
    ” WHAT are You going to do too change your lives ?” .
  With the correct information and a small amount of research great changes can be made. These are not global or government changing. But if enough of us were too start the revolution of change would gather momentum.
First steps: This is the hardest but most important, it won’t happen over night or over a few months. And yes you will fall of the path but take note and get back on track. It is not a race or compitition with others.
   Changing your mind set and misconceptions around food,meal times,portion size , what nutrients we need, healthy against unhealthy and what we see and how others perceive us. As I said above this is the hardest and it is a case of many small steps slowly building momentum and confidance with every small victory.
   While not making a big deal of any mistake or error in our path. Rewarding yourself for keeping on track and keeping track of the factors leading up to any blip so those cases can be flipped round or avoided.
  Surround yourself with like minded individuals, motivators,I can do’s,supportive networks. Ridding as best we can the sooth sayers,bullies,demotivational people,press,misinformed,lazy and haters.
  This giving Us the best mental building blocks to improve and continue the journey.

Second step: Small informed changes in diet and associations towards food and eating. Cutting down on the incorrect processes,food types,nutritional information,timings and social acceptability .
  By changing portion size, utilising informed choices, fueling the body correctly,correct fluid intake,time, and conception.
  Things like low salt, low sugar , low fat , utilising leaner meats,fish,chicken, pulses,seeds and fruit and veg. Changing preferances in pasta,breads and rice, wholemeal,wholegrain,egg proteins and freshly cooked instead of processed. These are just a few examples of the type of changes.

Third step: Increase in physical exercise, walk further than normal at normal pace. Once that becomes easier increase distance or pace and progress the same every time. For those that are able introduce short periods of jogging into this and increase as you did with the walking. In no time at all you will be able to rum the distance and longer.
  Swimming uses every muscle group in the body so burns more calories and tones more muscles. It is easier on us physically as no matter disability or weight the water supports our weight and allows for greater range of motion.
  Things like knee raises using the resistance of the water,wall hold leg kicks,dead leg arm pull lengths ect will improve general mobility ,flexibility, pain relief and recovery.
Cycling is another great low impact exercise that burns plenty of calories, to develop or progress add hills, increase speed or duration.

No matter your age,ability or ailment there is always something you can do.
What will all this do for me I hear asked!!
Here are a few for you, improved heart rate,respetory imput,lower stroke risk,better calorie conversion,lower Bmi,improved dietary process,less infections,happier,motivated,higher self esteem, lower stress and greater self awareness. Which will help and improve employment,personal,social and relationships of any kind but most of all a far better self and informed society.

“Embrace change and follow your heart do  not accept the perceptions of normality make your own mark on the world”
