What’s Your Excuse?

His LordshipHealth, Wellbeing & Fitness0 Comments

Like millions of people around the world, I did some gym work today. Leg extensions and squats, to be precise. My gym is a bit different to most, however, as it is outside. Now, if you live in California or Barbados or some other gloriously warm, hot and dry climate, this would not be any kind of deal. In fact, … Read More

Feeling S.A.D.?

Now the clocks have gone back, tens of thousands of people in the UK will start the downhill trek toward Seasonal Affective Disorder, or S.A.D. – as apt an acronym as I have ever heard. I hate to use the word “suffer” – it makes me feel like a victim – but I do experience S.A.D. Over the years, it … Read More

Time Travelling

Do you ever time travel? I do. I’ve done it all my life. Of course, I am not talking about time travel in the sci-fi sense, but the time travelling that I suspect most of us do – or at least have done – to our detriment. Let me explain. I first time travelled as a child when the school … Read More

MOT For Your Body

MOT For The Body

The Range Rover had an MoT* today. It failed. Sodding emissions. Most likely the cat just needs a bit of a clear out, which a blast up the motorway could fix but, of course, there is the worse-case-scenario where new cats are involved. I hate MoTs. Stress + Money x Time = MoT. This got me thinking. It is a … Read More

A Different Kind Of Strength

I love Yoga. There, I said it. I wasn’t expecting to and the whole reason I started to do it was because I was slowly becoming a living statue. In fact, to make sure I didn’t back down from starting, I spent a bunch of cash on some of the paraphernalia to invest myself in it. From the very first, … Read More

Yoga Lesson One

Yoga Lesson 1

I tried Yoga today for the first time. Being blessed with very short, tight tendons, I am not a flexible nor bendy person. Think C-3PO. As I’m getting older, I am becoming more and more aware of a decrease in what little flexibility I do have along with an increase in aches and pains. Quite a crap combination. For a … Read More

Give Me A Moment

Life is made up of moments: indefinable parcels of time in which an event is captured. A moment isn’t bound by the constraints of seconds, minutes or hours – it is it’s own thing. And a lot can happen in a moment. Life-changing events. You can fall in love, break an arm, break a promise…discover gold! Moments are important. We … Read More

Is Your Food Killing You?

Is Your Food Killing You?

What do processed meats have in common with tobacco smoke, asbestos and plutonium? Give up? Quite unbelievably, they are classified as a Group 1 Carcinogenic. As someone who, up until 18 months ago, was a regular consumer of processed meats (mainly in the form of ham, turkey rashers and packet chicken) I find this pretty shocking. Of course, I am … Read More

Three Supplements To Relieve Stress & Anxiety

Having a somewhat uncooperative brain, I have spent many years investigating various supplements that may help to alter my mood or aleviate various symptoms of my mental illness. Like many that suffer with depression, a large contributory factor to it is stress and anxiety. In recent years – and with the help of Vikki – I have discovered the three … Read More
