Be:Fit London Fitness Festival

Last weekend I attended my first ever fitness festival! It was called Be:Fit London and it consisted of fitness, health, talks and classes! I got to meet Clean Eating Alice and she gave some amazing fitness tips. We also listened to a talk by Rhiannon Lambert who spoke a lot of sense about how different diets work for different people!

How exercise can be therapy

As it's Mental Health Awareness Week, I wanted to share my own views on what I consider to help prevent mental health issues. I am not saying this will heal any current issues and I am by no means a Doctor, but I wanted to share my own experiences and why I think exercise can be a real mind booster for anyone suffering with their own mental health.

If I had a penny for every time I had tried to encourage someone to exercise for their health and well-being, I'd be very rich by now. I know people get fed up with me banging on about it, but getting into exercise and fitness was honestly one of the best things I've ever done. I'm happier, healthier and I tend to be able to let go of things a lot more; such as stress and sadness.

I have also learnt new things about my body. I know I can run a half marathon (never did I think I'd be capable of doing one!), I know that I get extremely tired when I haven't eaten at the right time, and I know my body loves carbs the day before I do cardio. I've also learnt that I'll always be pear shaped and I'll have cellulite no matter how much I work out. But I seem to care less now than ever before, and I think it's because I've learnt that our bodies are capable of so much more than we can ever imagine. So that bit of cellulite that used to bother me, suddenly doesn't because I'm grateful that my body lets me do incredible things.
