Welcome to this week's Life Performance Blog. Each week I will share with you health articles, podcasts, workouts and the latest research when it comes to living a healthy life.
My aim is to help people become better informed, take action and move towards better health, a stronger body and mind, and take control back of their health and wellbeing.
This Week's Health Article: Looking Good vs Feeling Good. What Is More Important To You?
We are currently living in a world where we are encouraged to look a certain way. There are countless videos and images on social media promoting a specific look or image and how to best achieve the so called perfect looking body. But is health and fitness more than just how we look? What about how we feel?
This Weeks Health Podcast: Tips To Minimise The Negative Effects Of Alcohol
This week's podcast is from Whoop hosted by Kristen Holmes & Emily Capodilupo.
They break down all things alcohol by discussing what we know about alcohol’s impact on the body, how alcohol leads to poor sleep, how alcohol deters muscle development and hinders the results of a workout, healthy behaviours to offset hangovers and alcohol consumption and tricks to improve recovery if you know you will be drinking.
This Week’s Health Research: Effects Of Sleep Extension On Weight
Getting more sleep might help you eat less without even trying, according to new research from the University of Chicago.
Besides eating less, the participants told the researchers they felt more alert, with a better mood and higher energy level.
Those are benefits that can translate to making wise food choices, having fewer cravings, and getting in more daily movement. Win-win-win.
This Week's Workout Recommendation:
Each week I will recommend a workout that, if performed multiple times through the week, will help you increase strength, cardio fitness, mobility and mental confidence. Depending on your access to equipment, change the exercises to suit but keep the workout protocol the same.
