Father's Day Gift Ideas & Giveaway

For the Health Conscious Dad

Fathers Day falls on June 18th in the UK and its a day to honour our dads. I don't know about you but I always struggle when it comes to buying for my dad because he is so hard to buy for so always end up just getting him a card - boring I know, but he always appreciates it and its always coupled with a hug & kiss and those are priceless right....

Many dads get inundated with either socks, ties or mugs on Fathers Day, so I've put together this gift guide for the health conscious dad in mind which I hope will inspire you.

I am OutRUN-ning MAY for Macmillan Cancer Support


I was approached by Macmillan Cancer Support to take part in OutRun May next month. This involves setting yourself a target of miles to run across the 31 days of May and get sponsored to reach your goals, one run at a time.

I am not a great fan of running and after much deliberation and getting the nudge from a colleague to do it, I decided why not it's for a good cause, so now I will be running a total of 30 miles (I hope to run more than 30 but we will see) which means 1 mile everyday across 31 days. Eeek! It doesn't sound so bad when you break it down.

Aloe Winter: Benefits of using Aloe Ferox in the Winter || Winter Series

Aloe Ferox 24-7 Beat the Winter Blues 

One good way to help maintain good health and fitness in winter is to protect the body against bacterial, viral and fungal infection and by this we need to maintain optimum nutrition. Aloe vera has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and immune enhancing properties and when taken internally may help the body to resist infections and provide means of fighting them off quicker should they occur. In winter we are more prone to colds/coughs & the dreaded stomach flu (norovirus) so using Aloe Ferox Vera can solve many of your winter woes - including dry skin, itchy scalp to dry hair.

Staying Hydrated in Winter || Beating the Winter Blues - Winter Series

Beat the Winter Blues

Staying hydrated throughout the cold months always seems hard, it's so much easier drinking water during the warmer climates. But it is important to stay hydrated as the air is much drier and this can have an affect on your health, making you feel sluggish and run down. If your struggling with your water intake, then try drinking it warm/hot and flavouring it with a slice of lemon/ginger, drink herbal teas or eat your water.
