Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

CARiFiT: Fun, Safe and Effective At-Home Post-Natal Fitness

As a new parent, juggling a young baby and trying to find time for yourself is incredibly challenging and often enough, this is the time when a lot of parents sacrifice their own needs in favour of caring for their little one. However, this is the time when you need energy and positivity the most, and exercise is proven to increase energy levels, improve sleep and boost your mood. An energized and happy parent will mean a happier baby too!

CARiFiT online workouts are done whilst wearing the baby, offering new mothers the chance to get back into shape and bond with their baby at the same time. Making exercise fun and accessible, the latest CARiFiT4ALL is a free and safe way to exercise at home. Signposted by the Royal College of GPs in their clinical lifestyle toolkit and supported by GP’s throughout the UK, this fun yet informative introduction to CARiFiT is packed full of information and advice from professionals within the fields of physiotherapy, midwifery and babywearing. It is the ideal way to ease back into exercise and arm yourself with the right tools and knowledge to do this safely.

CARiFiT devotees in 21 countries and counting are regularly posting about their amazing body changing results after as little as 12 minutes per day! These workouts have been carefully and purposefully designed to be highly effective, yet safe and the results are quickly apparent.

The name CARiFiT stems from the structure and design of the workouts, yet it also cleverly encompasses the babywearing element. Put simply, the letters represent the following:

 

C – Cardio
A – And
R – Resistance
I – Intervals

 

Each of the workouts offers a mixture of low impact cardio and resistance interval training techniques, all designed to engage the core, improve the posture and increase all-round fitness. There’s something for everyone to try during the most exciting, but exhausting time of being a new parent!

The emphasis is always on providing a safe, yet effective workout that has been accessible and guilt-free; The babies take centre stage during the workouts, removing any potential separation anxiety. For the ladies that are used to high-intensity pre-choreographed workouts, they will feel a reassuring sense of familiarity throughout the workouts. To those new to working out, CARiFiT offers an easy to follow, yet constantly challenging routine that will leave you energised and exhilarated.

All the workouts go through the same process – once the moves have been fine-tuned, they are tested whilst babywearing and then observed by fellow professionals in both the medical and fitness fields. They then structure the sequence of exercises to offer a safe and thorough post-natal specific full-body workout.

Many will be surprised to learn that CARiFiT is the brainchild of Vern Hill, an ante and postnatal fitness expert who is also a father of two! He is supported by a team of industry-leading fitness professionals, as well as top doctors, midwives, physios and babywearing experts…nothing is left to chance.

 

The CARiFiT online membership was created to offer new mothers everywhere the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the workouts, wherever they are in the world, at any time of the day or night. There are also exclusive benefits for members in the subscription-only members portal, including discounts and personalized offers.

 

The flexible membership options start from just £20 per month and provide numerous workouts to vary the routines regularly. There is also plenty of lifestyle and nutritional advice to help make the right or necessary changes and every online member receives full support via email from their own post-natal fitness expert.
