I have spent the past couple of months feeling less than under the weather. In November we were all struck down with the dreaded Noro virus and the past couple of weeks the flu has been doing the rounds. It’s not just the fact that I’m coughing up my guts (which isn’t very pleasant) but that I just don’t have the motivation to do much more than stroll to the fridge and back to bed again.
The new year for me is a time for new beginnings, possibilities and wonder. I want to do all the things, go to all the places and just live life to the full but I know I have to be in tip top condition to achieve that so top of my list for 2017 is health!
Now hold your horses, I’m not about to join a gym or anything extravagant like that! One step at a time. I am going to make some small changes to my daily habits as I think this is achievable and thanks to lights by TENA, I am already off to a good start.
By downloading the My Pff app onto my phone, which is available in both google play and the apple store, it means that I never forget to do those all important pelvic floor exercises. Improving your pelvic floor tone reduces your chances of experiencing little leaks and can, in time, entirely eliminate these little oooops moments from your life.
The my pff application explains and guides you through the exercises, ensuring you are doing everything correctly and in the most effective way. It allows you to track your progress and receive daily reminders to do your exercises at a time that suits you and fits in with your routine. The thing with pelvic floor exercises is that they can be done anywhere and at anytime so in between a flick through Twitter and a game of Candy Crush I can click a button and get a set completed in a few minutes…nobody even knows that I’ve done them! The exercises are quite different to when I do them myself as I don’t tend to hold for so long so the app definitely feels like a proper workout, also I love that it reminds you to breathe because actually you can forget!
A few other changes I would like to make is to drink more water and eat a more colourful range of foods. I would also like to spend more time practicing some form of yoga and meditation because I think it is just as important to keep a clear healthy mind as well as body.
I was sent a new year workout kit from TENA to get me on my way and I will be making my own kit for one lucky reader to get their new year off to a healthy start too so look out for that over on my twitter page!
What new year resolutions do you have?
