Instead of just wishing good vibes to a loved one at Christmas how about giving them a Vibroslim vibration machine.
A personal Vibration machine is the perfect way to gift the feel good vibes to people we love. We all know how hard it is to remain active around Christmas and we are really busy too.

The good thing about having personal exercise equipment at home is the opportunity
I love summer don’t you? During the warmer months of the year I feel lighter, happier and more energised. It feels like a holiday. Unfortunately, when the cooler, cloudy autumn and winter months start rolling in so do the blues.
Some of us start to feel a little down, a little depressed and bleak. For most people this is only a temporary thing but for others it can be more than that. Some of us can be prone to SAD, 'Seasonal Affective Disorder’. Can infrared heating at home help?
What is 'SAD' and why does it happen?
According to the National Sleep Foundation, and other exp

Today there is no doubt that stress is on the rise. Our bodies and minds are pushed to the limit with busy schedules, family life, work, social activities, running around, not to mention the impact of being online and needing to keep up with our profiles there as well. It's hard getting back into exercise.
Easy exercise at home after baby or any break from exercise..

After I had my first baby it was super tricky getting back into exercise. In fact, I couldn’t walk properly for three months, had abdominal separation and back pain.
I wanted to walk, but even going up the driveway was hard for so long!
Not only that, but the time I used to have for exercise was reduced by at least half or more. Realistically, getting in 10 minutes was a huge achievement of just some light bodyweight exercises.
Then it dawned on m
Most professionals agree that there are many health benefits with regular infrared sauna use. From muscle relief to heart health, from stress relief to looking feeling younger using an infrared sauna regularly can improve our quality of life. These days, however, as we are surrounded by many man made products that produce electromagnetic fields (EMF) we may need to think about lowering our exposure. Using a low EMF Infrared sauna can help keep our exposure to a minimum.
What is EMF?
EMF stands for electromagnetic force (or electromotive force). EMF is found in the natural world by sources such as the local build-up of electric charge in the atmosphere
Where did Pilates all begin?
Joseph Hubertus Pilates was born in Germany in 1883. As a child, Joe suffered many ailments including asthma so he turned to exercise and athletics to help. He studied various exercise routines and was transfixed with the idea of the classical Greek ideal of man with a balanced mind, body and spirit. Hence Pilates was born.
In 1912 Joe went to the U.K working as a defense instructor at Scotland Yard but at the outbreak of World War I he was interned as an “enemy alien”. Rather than wallow he refined his ideas by training other internees by rigging springs to hospital beds to enable patients to

Imagine being allowed to eat whatever you want to without feeling guilty. Well, guess what? You ARE allowed to and you always have been. When we were babies most of us were fed when we showed signs of being hungry and usually pretty quickly before we started screaming. Intuitive eating or mindful eating is just that, feeding on demand… for adults.
Over the years we have been programmed to believe that foods are either good or bad. If we eat the ‘bad’ foods we have then ‘failed’ and need to be punished. We punish ourselves by getting rid of the ‘bad food' and pursue eating
When my mum was battling cancer she would not eat. Nothing could tempt her. Not even her favourite foods. Not even Peking Duck which she loved beyond all reason. People would come with containers of curries, pastas, soups and more to fill up the freezer. Very kind of them, of course, but when we heard they were coming back we had to throw it away and pretend she had eaten it. Caused a few heated confrontations with relatives I can assure you.
I remember the one and only thing that she wanted was a ‘lemonade spider’, remember those? Basically just lemonade with a scoop of ice cream… easy, yes but not very nutritious. So that got me thinking.
The other day I was digging my way through the built up washing to find my teenage son's favourite t-shirt. Triumphantly I held it up and he told me I was ‘sick’. I wasn’t sure how to take it but apparently it’s a compliment. He rushed off happily and I returned to the leaning tower of washing. As I stared at it I got to thinking. I realised I was sick. I was tired. I was sick and tired. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. So I googled it.
Apparently, an amazing woman named Fannie Lou Hamer, a black human rights
When I turned 'a certain age' Facebook started sending me advertisements every day titled “how to lose those 5 kilos” or"how to remove stubborn belly fat". How did Facebook know? How did they know that I am five kilos overweight and not happy?
Now that I am 'a certain age' there might just be a light at the end of the tunnel I thought. I could lose the weight and finally be truly happy.
So, I tried the Atkins diet and I lost six kilos in two weeks, can you believe it? I was deliriously happy for an equivalent two weeks and then suddenly I wasn’t anymore. I hadn’t put the weight back on (yet) so where
