Congratulations to our administration assistant Sammy and her new husband Ashley on their wedding day. The wedding was held on the 28th July at the Barns at Hunsbury Hill, and they jetted off to the Dominican Republic for a two week hooneymoon. Sammy is now back to reality and back to work, updating you guys on our Facebook page. (Cambridgeshire Wellbeing Clinics) 😉
It is so important for your health that you keep moving as much as you can if you have a desk based work environment. Experts described inactivity as "one of the biggest" challenges in health. Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancers and poor mental health have all been linked to sedentary behaviour. Research shows that adults who sit down for eight hours a day were 59 per cent more likely to die within a 20 year period than those who were sedentary for four hours or less. However, (not to scare you all) this risk was almost eliminated if at least 60 to 75 minutes exercise was completed a day. – and two hours a day would be the the ideal amount. Below are a few ideas of ways to incorporate exercise into your work day;
Here are also a few exercises and stretches you can do from your chair, that will help keep you a little bit more comfortable.
Sara and Matt spent the weekend attending the incredible Little People UK 6th Annual Convention. This is now the fifth time we have attended and each year we are encouraged and moved by the kindness, determination and strength of spirit that everyone in the group displays.
Sara joined the panel of medical experts from around the country to answer questions and concerns raised by attendees. She also ran a workshop on managing spinal lordosis through specific exercises and, along with the rest of the medical panel, held clinics over the weekend to assist those with specific concerns.
Matt ran a mindfulness meditation session too.
The highlight was the Saturday evening banquet - great company entertainment and an inspiring awards ceremony.
Thanks to the LPUK team for your hard work, and to all the wonderful friends we have made.
Hotel was busy with sports teams too. Met some of the Bath Rugby Club Squad and Windies Cricket team staying at the Leicester Marriott Hotel.
Though we liked our old website, it was getting a bit long in the tooth.
There is some work to do on this new site but we are really happy with the overall concept.
Let us know if there is any particular section that you would like to see on the info and advice pages - maybe advice for a specific sport or rehab advice for a certain injury.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Counsellor, mindfulness coach, hypnotherapist and co-owner of the clinics.
