WELL-BEING



"It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."
(Mahatma Gandhi)





Well-being is for everyone. It is the state or condition of being in good physical,mental and emotional health. This year we intend to concentrate more on Well Being. Australia is gradually becoming a land, of a large percentage of over-weight citizens; and as we once were one of the healthier and fitter citizens in the world, it seems a shame. It is not that hard to maintain or become fitter. At times yes it is hard to lose weight, but with a new year ahead what a great time to start. We are not personal trainers, or fitness fanatics, but we will hope to put links to various sites concerned with health, weight or fitness apparel. Also have some suggestions on foods, correct eating, exercises, books you can purchase from the banners below, even exercise equipment.
So hopefully it will be an exciting year, as long as we can keep a positive mind. As we all know we all have choices in life, and at the beginning of a year what better time to make that choice to keep that little bit more healthier than last year.

So have a look at the information below and hopefully you will find something which can assist you on your way to health and happiness, which is what well-ness is all about.

7 EXERCISES YOU CAN DO AT HOME

Think you have no time for exercise? We've got a strength-training plan that will fit into your busy life, guaranteed! Just rotate through our 10-minute routines three times a week (one each day), and you'll feel stronger and slimmer in weeks. Perform these like a circuit: Do one set of each exercise with minimal rest in between. When you've done them all, grab some water and repeat twice more.

1 Chair Dips
Sit on the edge of a sturdy chair, with hands next to hips. Slide your bottom off the edge and bend elbows to 90 degrees. Be sure to keep your back close to the chair, then push back up. Do 10 to 12 repetitions.

2 Chair Squats
Stand in front of chair, feet hip-distance apart, toes forward. Lean chest slightly forward. Bend knees, tap (don't sit!) bottom on chair, then stand up. Keep your weight in your heels and keep knees over toes. Do 10 to 12 reps.
Get-Fit Tip #1- Keep a food log. I know, who has time to do even one more thing? But if you're serious about losing some weight, writing down what you eat is one of the best ways to help you stay on track. Even better, do it with a friend and then swap them nightly.

3 Butterfly Abs
Lie on back and place soles of feet together; relax knees out to the side. Place hands behind head, with elbows out. Tightening abs, lift chest and shoulders up, then release back down. Do 10 to 12 reps.
4 Modified Push-Ups
Get down on all fours, knees together. Walk hands out and lift feet; move hands slightly wider than chest. Head, neck, back and butt should be in alignment. Keeping your abs tight, bend elbows and lower chest toward the floor. Press back up. Do 10 to 12 reps.

5 Oblique Crunches
Lie on back, with knees bent. Cross left ankle over opposite knee. Place right hand behind head and lift right shoulder toward left knee. Release down. Do 10 to 12 reps, then switch sides.


6 Standing Hip Extension Stand with feet hip-distance apart. Shift weight to right foot, and extend left leg behind; lift and lower left foot, squeezing your butt. Use a chair for balance. Do 12 to 15 reps, then switch.

7 Step-Ups
Place entire right foot on a stair or a sturdy platform, and step up with left leg following. Step down with left leg, reaching back about 12 inches; follow with right. Do 12 times, keeping chest lifted, then switch sides and repeat. As you get stronger, try this move with weights.
