Hot Fitness Tip of the week

Menopause brings with it a wide range of changes to a woman's body. Without doubt, exercise is the menopausal woman's best friend in a way that it allows to control your body and emotions by using your internal resources.

Each time that you take exercise, your adrenal glands are stimulated to convert the male hormone androstenedione into oestrogen. A minimum of four 30-minute exercise sessions each week will help to keep your body producing a little oestrogen. Long-term exercise also means that you will have stronger bones and a lower risk of osteoporosis than non-exercisers.

 
Words of Inspiration

Hold an optimistic outlook

 

Many people tend to assume that they will spend much of their lives either unhappy or at least not really happy. However we have all seen those people who do seem to be genuinely happy with their lives. They smile frequently, laugh often, and seem to be in good humor most of the time. Yet this is not because they are richer or more successful. Sometimes these people were just born with the good fortune to have an optimistic outlook that life has not yet knocked out of them, but often these people have simply chosen that they will be happy and they recognize that there is always something about their lives that makes them happy. You know this is true of yourself as well.

 

Concentrate on the areas of your life that give you happiness whenever you feel unhappiness seeping in and no matter what assume that you will be, you can be, a happy person.

 

Don't simply sit at home waiting for happiness to come knocking on your door. Go out and live life. Think about what currently makes you happy and spend time in those activities and think about what might make you happy and spend time experimenting. The more time you spend actively living your life then the more likely that you will also lead a happy life.

Article of the Week

Rediscovering that Perfect Body

 

The image of the body beautiful is constantly with us, whether in the media, with new looks of the rich and famous or in adverts for new and miraculous supplements or exercise fads.

What is a perfect body image?

Well it tends to have toned hips and legs with a pert bottom, a strong stomach and an open chest. Only the genetically gifted or determined fitness freaks seem to embody this ideal, and yet this is in fact how everyone is designed. We all have bigger muscles in our legs than our arms because nature intended us to use our legs as our means of transport. Around our middles are muscles in a similar shape to a girdle that hold our internal organs in the right place. Along our spines are muscles similar to struts that can hold the spine long. In the middle of our body we have a big hinge, the hips, surrounded and protected by big muscles (thighs, buttocks, hamstrings), which help us move around it.

 

So if we move using our hips as a hinge and our legs as support they will be fitter and toned. If we then hold ourselves upright using our "girdle" and maintain a long spine with our "struts" we will then not tend to let our stomachs bulge and our shoulders collapse.
