At this time and more than ever, people are searching for a deeper meaning to their life. At the same time, more and more people are becoming sick, anxious, struggling to cope with daily life which, directly affects the quality of their mental health. With that in mind, have you considered the last time you gave yourself permission to stop, step out of the rat race
There will always be times in our lives when we have a lot on our plate and for a few months we can cope, and channel that time into producing something worthwhile. However, continued lengths of time without addressing the balance can have catastrophic consequences to our state of health, especially, our capacity to think clearly and generate great work. That directly affects our relationships, working environment and family unit and our own ability to function.or a while, take a breath, assess or contemplate, on practically anything.
Our emotions are our inner guide, and when paid attention to and understood can bring a wealth of information to our lives so that we know how to take much better care of ourselves.
The Working Mind Meditation- “Lamrin” the tools from Tibeten Buddhist meditation training help us pay attention to the purpose of our feelings and how to take control of them. If we track the root cause to those feelings which frighten us and hold us back we can reduce our anxiety, reduce everyday stress, increase inner happiness and develop our intuition and improve our focus.
Here are some of what one can learn in meditation
Many individuals who survive stroke need to re habilitate and regain as much confidence as possible and reclaim as much of themselves as soon as possible. It’s a daunting experience but with stroke people find themselves really worrying how they are going to manage with everyday tasks.
It is also a very traumatic time for the family and wondering how you are all going to manage and cope can be a very worrying time, but help is at hand especially if you feel that you are out of resources. If that’s how you feel and don’t know where to turn, don’t panic you are in the right place. However, we need to gain as much of you back as possible and it takes some work on your part. So what happens in the sessions?

“My GP told me to lose weight & I am also going deaf in both ears, I was struggling. I was trying my best to lose weight but it wasn’t working. I was becoming more and more frustrated. I phoned Jane & explained what was happening to me and after a chat I agreed to undertake a consultation and she assessed my health and my approach.
It was the first time I felt heard
One of those tests showed me just how dehydrated my body had become which has a direct correlation to my fat stores. She explained what I needed to focus so that the weight loss was the reward. For the first time in my life it all made sense and guess what 10 days later I was already down a notch on my belt. Why did my GP not tell me that?
Dehydration has a direct correlation to holding onto body fat- fact!
It can be terrifying if someone you love has began to show signs of reduced cognitive function. The feeling of helplessness, of being out of control, and the pain of seeing someone you love slowly disappearing, can leave you wondering how you will cope – and whether you are up to it.!!!
Here are just a few signs to look out for:
Reduced general confidence and confusion, displays of emotional turmoil, argumentative and irritable, lucidity, confusion between day and night,less able to recognise the faces they know or less engaging and unable to follow the thread of a conversation.
An ability to identify that something is wrong but unable to communicate what.
If you are worried about some one’s memory, you don’t have to suffer in silence there are things you can do about it and blue print is available to you here at https//www.justcallmereg.com in digital download or in print.
Are you playing to the best of your ability?
Do you need to loosen up to improve your golf swing technique and your game?
Well did you know that mobility exercises and stretching are key in developing your game as is being able to focus. It’s not how much time you spend practising that improves the game it’s the quality of the practice situation when you are there that counts.
Practising a good warm up preparing your muscles for what they are about to undertake is a good place to start.
Being able to put your mind in the right place is also relevant to the point that you can practise as if it were a tournament and deliver like a winner as you start to raise your own bar.
Shoulder flexibility, upper and lower back mobility, being able to rotate and move your torso independently from your hips will all improve your game.
Like any other great sportsman or woman these exercises are to be practised before going onto the driving range and fall part of the process.Learn More
Virtual Health launches Skype Personal Training Service.
Virtual Health was initially for those individuals who are embarrassed to go to the gym and who were time poor. However, after much nurturing and managing the highs and lows of business, this week I have launched a new personal training concept “Personal Training” through Skype.
Some of our old clients have been in touch this week and live outside the UK or are not in our area and wondered how I could help them as we have previous training history and they didn’t want to train with anyone else or was unable to find the suitable trainer.
Skype seems to be our solution to staying in touch on scheduled training and keeping my valued clients in good shape.
So when you have a moment take a look at our re branded site at http://www.virtual-healthclub.com and or drop me a line on email: email@example.comLearn More
If your pelvic floor muscles are weak you will be unable to respond when your body performs dynamic exercises.
Most of us have heard of the pelvic floor muscles but few practise them as much as 3 times a week.
They are there to protect the pelvic organs and embarrassing leakages.
To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles you need to do the exercises three times a day and up to ten sets of ten second holds with also ten short strong contractions daily for about 12 weeks.
Pelvic floor problems are not age related some teenagers also suffer from bladder and bowel control as well. Teenagers, who are heavily into sports at school such as gymnastics for example tumbling, can also experience a weak pelvic floor due to the force on the pelvic floor when landing as does running.

Why it is important and what to expect.
Before embarking on any exercise program it is paramount that you undertake a health assessment whether you are on medication or not.In the world of personal training we are governed by a code of practice and have a “duty of care” to our clients in order to make sure you are safe and as free from risk as possibly.
The health assessment follows the initial consultation
What is a health assessment and what does it report?
A health assessment is a measurement of approx 10-12 key indicators of your personal state of health.
They range from blood pressure readings to a variety of tests including body fat measurements, flexibility just to name a few.
The benefit to you is that a health assessment can provide key information and can detect health issues that may prevent the onset of chronic disease such as a stroke.
So, if you are thinking of engaging with a personal trainer this is what you need to know from the health assessment before you start an exercise program.
Normal blood pressure for young people 120mmHg/80mmHg and changes with age to approx 140mmHg/90mmHg any higher than that there needs to be referral to the GP
It’s a known fact that exercise raises blood pressure and is linked to stroke. A responsible trainer will never compromise neither you nor them, but will insist on a health check before prescribing or embarking on any exercise program.
This involves blowing thru a tube for a reading three times and averaging for the score and again if the lung capacity is too low exercise may be impaired.
Measures waist and hips circumference. Too much weight around the waist can lead to health problems.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is the relationship between weight and height that is often associated with health risks.
Some sports specific individuals who have a higher ratio of muscle to fat such as Rugby players have a tendency to fall into the obese category of Body Mass Index scoring when being tested.
Hamstring flexibility or the lack of it, can affect one’s exercise capacity due to their short length so problems may arise with cardiovascular training. Training adaptations are required.
The core area is the area of the body which runs from the shoulders to the hips.
This assessment tests superficial stomach muscles “the one’s you can see- hopefully”
This test maybe inappropriate for some clients, especially those with reduced flexibility, back complaints or have hernia.
This assessment tests the strength of a variety of muscles in your upper body and core.
(If appropriate) means that if the trainer believes the test is going to impair the training the test can be bought in at a later date once you have acquired the skills for that test. However, much does depend on what you are trying to achieve from the program. The trainer will make a decision. The results of the assessment will give you a base line in terms of a starting place at that given time and date.
Remember, that without testing or measuring you will never know how much you are improving or what is changing in relation to body composition and your own personal health.
Our assessment will show you just that!
Exercise prescription also available on request and please don’t be offended if I send you to your GP for further testing should the results dictate.
An excellent series of small and easy to understand books with a clear incisive analysis on a vitally important topic of dementia, which raises public awareness from the carer point of view.
I never knew how much mental preparation could benefit until I trained with you. I now know that if I can do it in my head I can do it on the arena floor – with a lot of practise of course, Amazing
When I fell and hurt myself at work, you took care of me and I realised just how much you know about the body. I thought I had a problem with my knee which I found out later with you that the problem stemmed from by back- You are better than my doctor.
I am 88 years old, tried to move the sofa in my flat and hurt myself, thanks for gently manipulating me and putting me back together
You showed me how to do exercises correctly, now I can do them without causing myself endless appointments at the physiotherapist- you are the best.
Training my wife until Alzheimer’s disease really took hold of her, really helped her and supported me. Now I am 87 and 15 minutes gentle and appropriate exercise before my massage has helped me feel better. Has lifted my spirits and got the juices flowing. My back is better too now you have showed me what exercise to do at home to open up the joint.
Reg…. a wonderful series of useful information on memory loss. Jane has helped me understand what we need to be aware of, cope with and plan for as we enter old age. The best part of these books are that they fit in your pocket for easy reference, but, more importantly, the writing is big enough that I can see it.
I hit someone and in the moment hurt my shoulder. First appointment sorted even though I have exercises to do and a follow up appointment, Thanks for always finding a way to fit me in with my crazy work schedule.
At the time I was not in a very good place you helped me become a fighter, teaching me to zone out of what was going on around me and focus. I still do that today when I am faced with negativity. That day I performed my best a faultless routine a day and performance I shall never forget. The icing on the cake was winning and that I shall thank you forever.
Being clear in your instructions and your advice, which you deliver with compassion and honesty, has helped me feel confident and hopeful
