It’s a common adage that carrots are good for your eyes – but is that really true? Here are ten foods that, in addition to other health benefits, will boost your eye health and help you protect them against eye disease.
I recently read an essay titled ‘No diet, no detox: how to re-learn the art of eating’ which included the assertion that ‘the art of eating …is a question of psychology as much as nutrition. We have to find a way to want to eat what’s good for us.’
The same could be said for fitness. Those who live sedentary lifestyles and baulk at the concept of physical activity cannot be forced to adopt exercise as a regular lifestyle habit. We have to find a way to make them want to do it.
More and more leaders in the fitness industry are embracing the idea that, for long term results, the body needs to follow where the mind leads it – not just where a personal trainer leads it for an hour or two each week. Empowering clients to take control of their own wellbeing by wanting to move more and eat well is the key to lasting success.
