So here we are at my last post…. How emosh! If you’ve been reading since the start you might remember me mentioning how by improving our lifestyle we will save the NHS’ ass (If you’ve only just joined, better late than never huh!). So that’s what this post is going to be about! Just a little round up of the past 7 weeks and how helpful it can be…

|LIFESTYLE| Head first… Mental Health & Stress

This week’s blog is about something which everyone deals with on some level… Stress, strain and bad mental health days. This affects our whole lifestyle hugely and is something that needs to be taken care of and nurtured just as much as our diet and activity levels.
