Shirley’s Top 5 Health Rules for 2017:

  1. Eat More Veg… predictable? But there’s no getting away from these nutritional power-houses – research show filling up more on veg = eating less and feeling fuller 

  2. Get Moving – more of us now work in sedentary jobs when we’re sitting at computers for long periods.  Over time this can lead to slow digestion and low energy – help yourself by taking regular breaks from your desk to move around.  We need regular movement for food to move through the digestive tract

  3. Relax More – find a relaxing activity to do each day – even 10 minutes helps your body to calm down and function more efficiently.  Research confirms meditation and mindfulness are excellent ways to reduce anxiety and stress

  4. Drink Drink Drink – to sharpen up we need to top up our daily water intake to at least 1.5 litres – our brain contains 85% water…

  5. and finally… avoid eating at your desk or “on the run” – the digestive process begins in the brain when we see, smell, prepare or think about food, so take time eating and chew food thoroughly to aid digestion

I hope these rules are helpful – more bespoke advice is available through a private consultation / corporate workshop/seminar
