Wellbeing in the Workplace
A new year is here and everyone seems to be on the January bandwagon - Veganuary, no-meat Monday's and of course, the gyms are raking it in with new membership sign-ups! This is a great opportunity for us and will make a huge difference in people's personal wellbeing, making them feel better both physically and mentally for so many reasons. But alongside healthier cooking at home and all those miles on the treadmill, we still really need to consider our wellbeing in the workplace.

How do I become a gym bunny?
It has recently occurred to me that, although I am yet to turn 25, my body and I are not getting any younger. It’s time to start taking care of myself, and said body, for real this time. And by take care of myself, I don’t mean treat myself to whatever I want food or clothing wise, or to have a pamper night with (insert last months masks) once a week - because I do that anyway.

A Vegan Diet can Improve Your Sex Life?!

Here’s another reason why switching to a plant-based diet can benefit you… and your partner!

By now we have all heard that swapping to a vegan diet can positively impact our environment and our own health. There are plenty reasons why people stop eating meat and diary, whether that be for ethical reasons or simply not liking the taste. However, there may be a less obvious reason you might want to consider eating a plant-based diet or solely just eating more fruit and veg. An idea for Veganuary, maybe?

Eating more plants can do us a world of good but did you know that eating more of the healthy stuff could improve your activities in the bedroom? Well, many plant-based foods can improve circulation to the brain and other parts of the body. Increased blood circulation means that there is a better physical response… a longer response. Foods which have this effect on our body include fruits, cayenne pepper, leafy greens, dark chocolate, sunflower seeds and beetroots. Plant-based foods are known to be great source of Zinc and Vitamin B which are able to improve libido. So by eating more chickpeas, avocados and bananas it could give you the boost you need! Do we need another excuse to eat more avocado on toast?

In 2006 there was even a study conducted which found that people eating more plant-based foods smelled a lot better than those who ate meat. Some people even suggested that men who ate more fruit and veg had sweeter tasting semen. Nice! While, specifically, pineapple can make vaginas taste better. Now, evidence on that part is inconclusive however there’s nothing to lose by trying it out.

It has been found that the cholesterol and saturated fats found in animal products are more likely to clog our arteries and therefore slow down the flow of blood. Yes, that includes the reduced flow of blood to those vital organs down below. Thus leading to impotence in men which isn’t great news for anyone. But fear not, it has been found that by consuming more plant-based meals it can reverse the effects caused by eating animal products.

So on your next date night try suggesting that new vegan restaurant in town to make sure your night ends just as well as it started.
