Exploring the Effects of the Evolution of Great British Sports on Health and Fitness

With the recent conclusion of the biggest sporting event in the world (one which involves the most number of different sporting codes, that is), the Olympics never fail to bring into focus our relationship with the professional sportspersons we admire so. Whether your unrealised talent could perhaps have had you battling it out amongst all the athletes or indeed if you draw inspiration from the way in which the pros dedicated their time to sculpting and moulding their bodies into health and fitness machines, in one way or the other what professional athletes tend to do for a living touches all our lives.

You Are What You’ve EATEN

It’s perhaps turned into an in-built trait we generally have as the human race, that being wanting to take care of our problems once they’ve been clearly defined as problems and revealed themselves as opposed to proactively taking steps to prevent those problems from developing. It’s definitely something more of us need to take better control of, especially in the corporate world or whatever working environment we find ourselves in. One of the main areas of our lives in which we tend to want to take reactive measures in addressing a problem is in replenishing the energy reserves we require to get us through the day. You are indeed what you’ve eaten — what you’ve already eaten, which is why energy drinks and the likes are only effective as a short term solution, if at all. You need to take a more proactive approach and plan your diet for better energy well in advance, with the best such planning taking the form of incorporating finger snacks into your diet throughout the day. Citrix GoToMeeting has put together this great infographic discussing 15 snacks you can kick-start your day with for more energy, or you can fill-up on them throughout the day to give you an energy boost or maintain good levels of energy.

Navigating Through the Fitness Info-Overload

For all that the development of technologies such as search engines gives us, such as the ability to just instantly search for the best way of doing anything really, the sheer number of results available makes for somewhat of an information overload. This information overload works both ways though and doesn’t just apply to those of us searching for the information.

A Safer Way to Lose Weight and Keep it off

If this was a one-line post, it would simply deliver the following message to you: Losing weight safely and keeping it off entails programming your body to react naturally to a specific set of triggers, with that reaction being the burning of excess fat. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? If you were to try and actually implement it though, it would make for a bit of a challenge because it’s not that easy to find the specific triggers which tell the body to burn fat naturally. If you’re not enchanted by fad diets, crash-diets and miracle weight loss pills however, you’re on the right track. All you have to do now is go on a journey of personal discovery, with a biological twist. Get to know your body and you’ll be able to instruct it to start burning all the fat you need to work off – biologically that is; we’re not that guru-led, “power-over-thyself” type of party!

Why You Need to Take Magnesium

Magnesium is vital for your good health and wellbeing. Not only does magnesium regularize your blood pressure and help your heart maintain a steady rhythm, but it’s also essential to strengthen your bones and joints, along with various other benefits. So, while you can prevent certain damage to your tendons and joints by using powerstep insoles in your footwear, and making sure you warm up before working out, you can also help your body from the inside by taking magnesium supplements daily.
