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
This was shared with me by a client’s husband this week who was experience chronic sciatic pain which I have managed to get under control.
He said and I quote;
“My wife and I were out shopping, we arrived home pleased with our efforts and shortly after my wife asked if we could turn the heating down”. The heating was not on she was in a raging heat, felt drained, really down and soaked right through to the point she needed a shower and changed her cloths.”
That got me thinking what do I know that may help you get an anchor on your raging heat post festive period. Its so draining to your life force contributing to low mood. Well as a 51-year-old woman and a health practitioner for many years I have learned just how much my own body resonates with eastern philosophy and treatments such as acupuncture and ancient cupping etc. The one ingredient sure to rage your body heat is refined sugar found in sweets, cakes and biscuits and all the wonderful treats at this festive time including the booze.
Here are two tips I want to share with you which I found worked for me.
1. Change from drinking cold water to room temperature water or even mildly warm boiled water. Why, because heat dissipates heat.
2. Time out and sit for a while with your feet in a bowl of hot water- a foot spa ( without scolding your feet ). The water needs to be about 3 inches up from your ankle bone. After about 5 minutes massage the inside of your shins along the meridian lines with a little oil and relax. Listen to a beautiful piece of music to help you unwind and chill.
Try these for a few weeks and see how you feel. They work for me and just might help you.Learn More
I used to love training when I was in international sport. I was fortunate to be able to train with some of the best trainers in the world. The physical training was never an issue for me, training after school and 8 hour days at weekends was great. But when my sport took on a whole new level I needed to up my game. A trainer in the USA took me under her wing and started to train me as they do in the US.
Six weeks I was there and man was I sore. I was exposed to working with some of the finest artistic athletes, learning to do what they did and how they achieved so much. That’s when I was taught about Mental Preparation Techniques. It is a training area rarely visited and understood in terms of its benefits, not only to sporting performances but to anything you are trying to achieve really.
“Once an athlete has mastered all the physical and technical qualities required to be successful on the international circuit, then success becomes 10% physical and 90% mental”
From personal experience I was shown in the USA the value of this technique and once you know how to train your mind to use it correctly. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish. It is a great tool to focus on when recovering from an injury too so that you don’t become over focused on the injury.
If you are not achieving the results you want from your current training regime, you may need to look at this because having the skills to accomplish a move and then drilled time and time over is one thing, but how can you be sure you will be able to pull that move out of the bag when it counts the most- in the performance arena, on the big day-

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
How would you feel if this happened to you?
If your loved one is showing sign of reduced brain function then if you want to keep them for longer obtain an early diagnosis.
Early diagnosis is crucial in preventing the escalation of the first signs of memory loss especially if it can be kept at bay for as long as possible. There is no known cure for dementia at this time so consider doing what is best by them.
Further information about what to do when you suspect a loved one showing signs of memory loss can be found here in the publication REG here at https://www.justcallmereg.com
It’s all about Alzheimer’s disease, solutions, support and information on the biggest curve ball you will ever be thrown in your life.

It can be terrifying, …if, someone you love has started to show signs of reduce cognitive function, memory loss in other words, or showing signs of the onset of dementia or even Alzheimer’s disease which is a form of dementia.
The feeling of helplessness, feeling 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, as it has a funny way of bringing about one’s own mortality.
Right at this moment, turn to the person you love. I want you to imagine what life would be like – your life, as your loved one gradually forgets everything about you, eventually not being able to remember who you are, your name even, and your shared life.
So, if you are reading this and it has struck a chord within you and you want to keep your loved one for longer then you will find the link to the Blue Print of what to do, where to go and what to ask in the latest publication written & inspired by a man named Reg….News information and solutions for those families affected by Alzheimer’s disease here.

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.
Shoulder surgery put me out of action with my 1 2 1 gym sessions for a while, but now with support and persistence from you my trainer I have recovered fully and gained the muscle tone back in my arm which had wasted.
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.
Talking to Jane helped me understand what was happening to my Dad. Jane helped me to feel more in control and a lot less useless.
I was out of resources and did not know who to turn to. I found Jane on the Internet. My wife has regained much of her confidence, can now go to the Gym and work out in Jane’s studio, regained some memory and improved her speech, meet up with the family and this year flew with me abroad – Can’t thank you enough such a wonderful support and friend.
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 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.
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.
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.
Your guidance and support has helped me understand that my sister and I are doing the right things for our Mum.
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
