Official Workout at Work Day Sparkle Tip ~ Play a Sport.

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Shanks for the memories.

I attended Tom Shanklin’s testimonial launch last night at Cardiff City Stadium. His latest knee injury has meant he has accepted that he is now officially retired from the game he loves. In his words “there is more to do in Life than just playing rugby”. His testimonial evening marked the start of his new media career and events being organised throughout the year support Wooden Spoon The children’s charity of rugby

This was my second visit since Steve Hall cycled his way into Cardiff City Football Stadium this time last year, all the way from Hereford FC. Day 93 Cardiff City, Day 94 Cowbridge FC and Day 96 Swansea City.

Both Bjorn and Steve’s cycling efforts in raising awareness of the 45 million refugees can be summed up by this powerful image: Here’s what the Shirt looks like today. Unbelievable. It takes TWO cranes to lift it.

Playing a sport for a town, a city or your country takes on the team building process and spirit we see in business and it’s no surprise that many successful business owners and entrepreneurs are sporting champions or ex military, as I found to my surprise last night. A night to remember listening to the legendary Gareth Edwards talk about the chances Wales have in winning the World Rugby Cup 2011. Q&A presented so professionally by the young Cardiff player, Rhys Williams. The most important component being the passion and skill professionally cascaded down through generations. It was heart warming to see so many mums and dads supporting their sons last night.

It’s very easy to get lost in busy work. You may spend much time in your office, in-box or filing and organizing things. Participating in or coaching a sport has so many ongoing rewards for the future. Working together for a better tomorrow. .

What activity, exercise, or sport helps you become more productive and more relaxed?.

Workout at Work Day Sparkle Tip ~ Taking your power back from others

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011


Va Va VOOM.

Taking your power back from others

One of the most ticked boxes from my Fitness Goal Planner is ‘How can I have more energy?’

Here’s six tips. How about adding some of yours? smile

1Wake up, sleepy head!
Unsurprisingly, lack of sleep is the most common cause of low energy, so try and get between seven and eight hours sleep a night. Dim lights at night. You can help yourself get a good night’s sleep by keeping to a pattern of going to sleep and waking up at the same time, whether you’re tired or not and making sure your bedroom is the right temperature and not too noisy. A good sleep is should be like a good meal, leaving you satisfied and happy with just enough room for a little bit more.

2Dr. Das wrote Thin people don’t skip Breakfast Raise glucose metabolism Energise to exercise!
Breakfast recharges your batteries and kick-starts your body and mind for the day ahead, then people wonder why they feel so sluggish when they miss it. If you don’t feel like eating first thing in the morning, have a glass of energy-boosting fresh fruit juice. Too rushed to eat? Try munching on fruit, oatcakes or cereal bars.For those of you trying to lose weight effectively eat regular meals starting with a ‘Power’ breakfast.

3. Move it!
Put a spring in your step. Just 15 minutes of exercise can make a huge difference to your energy levels. Too busy to exercise? Try walking that extra stop to the bus, taking the stairs instead of the lift or going for a brisk walk during your lunch break.

4Power Breathe
Feel like you are rushing around with no time to breathe? Stop panting and take a deep breath of fresh air. By not taking in enough oxygen, energy levels drop dramatically and this can even cause slight dizziness. Stop what you are doing and take five deep breaths. Breathe in through one nostril to the count of three and then exhale for six. Change nostril and repeat. Do this daily for an energy lift.

Take your power break!

5Dynamic Stretching ~ Stretch while you hydrate – Drink regular glasses of water!
Feeling creaky? Stretching is one of the easiest ways to release tension and boost energy. Stretching for two to three minutes will loosen your muscles, ease joints and allow blood to flow more easily around your body. Whether you’re at your Pc desk, at home or stuck in traffic, stretching as many parts of your body as possible will give you more energy and help relax you at the same time. Never take your neck and back for granted. Sit on a Chi Ball to ease your spine or curl up on the floor ‘like a ball’ holding the inner thighs close to your chests, as you relax the head and neck!

6. Take a walk on the wild side and have some fun!.

Sept 8th Workout at Work Day sees staff being encouraged to get active during their workday.

  • Moving during work breaks helps your posture and is good for being social offline!

Every day until next Thursday I will feature a Workout Tip at Work Day to celebrate this CPS initiative. .

Q&A
One of the questions often asked by business people, especially busy mums and dads is:

Q ~ “How do I get more energy?”

A ~ Good hydration is one of the biggest contribution to energy

A 2 ~ Good quality sleep and relaxation.

Drinking water at body temperature on waking is a great way to start your day.  We all dehydrate after 6 hours sleep. If you work in air conditioned offices you dehydrate more. Remember to have your bottled water and glass at your work desk and a lovely green plant nearby helps.

What is your question?

Any Company ( big or small ) wanting to know how to implement this CSP WOWD initiative, please contact me: carolyn@lifestyle-online.co.uk
