stretch it

Fitness and food coach Diana of Bodybewell reminds us of the importance of stretching. Check out her tips here: How many times have you heard a trainer, fitness guru or your coach say, “You must stretch, you need to stretch, remember your stretches.” Sound familiar? Wether you are a walker, runner or a weight lifter, your muscles may be tightening due to the load placed on it during the activity you are performing. Muscle tightness can limit your range of motion and this may also cause a muscle imbalance. So think about a time you may have gone for a run and felt sore and stiff the next day. This is muscle tightness.

the journey to 24 bins of waste per year – or less…

Since becoming a certified carbon neutral company, we’ve had the chance to meet with Heidi Fog. As an experienced sustainability professional, she shares here with us her easy tips to reduce our ecological footprint. “Apart from saving money on buying packaging, which will eventually end in the waste bin, I also avoid having to put the bins out more than once a month. When a truck starts and stops it pollutes 48 time more than if it was going at a steady speed, which in theory means I avoid 48 trucks going past my house each week.

Photographer Becca Fitzgerald loves our carrot cheek and lip balms. She tells us why here… Makeup has played a large role in my career for many years. Previously having been a model I always needed a makeup kit that was compact, could travel and did not compromise my health. Now working behind the lens as a photographer, makeup plays an essential role as a tool to capture individual beauty. Equally my love of wellness and wellbeing has been a core value in creating a healthy and sustainable life, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to have found Ere Perez natural makeup.

travel light, travel bright

There is nothing worse that lugging a big suitcase around on holiday. We’ve all done it – stuffed that huge black bag to bursting and regretted it. Those who travel well, travel light. They are minimalist in their approach to packing and excessive in the rewards they reap. No dragging the heavy case up flights of steps, missing the train, battling on escalators and getting in and out of cabs. Hotel on the top of a hill? Not a problem at all! Mostly, we over-pack because we’re trying to control the uncontrollable. We want to account for every eventuation. An outfit for every occasion, every season, every moment – we don’t want to be caught short or not looking our best.
