We all know that Ibiza has a reputation for being a party island but it’s also a beautiful place to relax and boost your health and fitness.
Ten years ago I had a car accident which sent me down a path of holistic health to discover yoga through rehabilitation.
If you are not the type of person who wants to do aerobic work-outs to burn those stubborn calories whilst you’re on holiday, and fancy a more holistic approach, then this week’s blog post is for you …

Our nation’s waist line is clearly expanding, simultaneously there’s an influx of dieticians, personal trainers, fitness regimes, new fitness classes, special boot camps, wellness centres and the list continues. In a recent article Beyonce revealed she gained 57lbs during her pregnancy and lost that weight through a vegan eating lifestyle. As the article continued to discuss her weight loss journey it took me to a link to what apparently is the 14 Best Diets for this year. When I saw the list I knew it was something I had to share with you all – Weight Watchers is surprisingly NOT number 1. So, here we go…
The way to break this link is by doing the very thing so many find hard to do – sharing and communicating.
The best route is through therapy and/or counselling, as this will not only help you deal with physical concerns but also provide you with advice on how to deal with your obesity, abuse as a child, or frustrations in your weight-loss efforts. Start by speaking with your GP and be open about your experience, the impact it has had on you and/or your loved ones – tell your GP that you are now seeking help with this matter. A good GP will offer various ways, contact names & numbers and point you in the right direction. That’s the easy part – the hard part is for you to make the connection.
The 18 minute rule – I was told many years ago by a wise PT that it takes the body 18 minutes to adapt to a workout. When doing a cardio workout haven’t you noticed that the first 15 minutes are at times tortuous, you breathing like a stuck pig and on the verge of quitting but when you continue for another few you find yourself almost (dare I say it)…cruising.
Do you shop with a list? I do. It ensures that I buy the healthy foods that I want for the week and won’t blow my budget on impulse purchases. Supermarkets use principles of Applied Psychology to make you stay longer and spend more.
