What is the easiest thing I can do to eat more healthily?

People often ask, ‘Should I be eating this food, or that food?’ or ‘What is the best thing I can do to eat more healthily?’   This is our opinion…

Every living organism on this planet can somehow get everything it needs and be fit and healthy enough to fight for its very survival, by eating a diet made up of whole, natural, unprocessed food.

  • Cheetahs can run faster than anything on the planet by eating whole, natural, unprocessed foods.
  • Gorillas grow immensely big and strong by eating whole, natural, unprocessed foods.
  • Wildebeest migrate huge distances by eating whole, natural, unprocessed foods.
  • Humans…have increasingly chronic medical challenges including obesity, higher blood pressure, heart disease, greater risk of diabetes and stroke (to name a few) by eating less whole, natural, unprocessed foods and lots more processed, manufactured junk.

A very simple lesson to learn from nature to eat more healthily is: 

“If it looks like it has come straight from a farm, it’s probably good for you. 

If it looks like it has come straight out of a factory, it’s probably not good for you”.

Eating less processed, manufactured junk food reduces the amount of excess, nutrient-low calories and salt, sugar, bad fats and additives you have.

Eating more whole, natural and unprocessed foods means you will be getting all the necessary energy and nutrients you need to fuel your body and thrive. For example eating more

  • Fruit and veg
  • Nuts and pulses
  • Meat and fish

A simple rule to follow to improve your healthy eating is to make sure the bulk of every meal/snack is made of whole, unprocessed, natural food that looks like it has come straight from a farm…and you won’t go far wrong.

Lockdown Relay Challenge Aftermath

A huge thank you to everyone who get involved with the Lockdown Relay Challenge yesterday! In the end, we had over 50 people taking part, doing a physical challenge and cheering each other along.

I know it was really great watching all the pics and comments coming into the Peer Support group through the day. And you can see them by clicking on this Facebook link here.

Above all else, I think it showed what a great bunch of people we have here. Willing to get stuck in and do something to make both their own lives and the lives of others, that little bit better…

Thank you to you all!

Lockdown Relay Challenge Schedule

So it is time for the Lockdown Relay!  If you haven’t already signed up, go here and do it now!  

How it’s going to work

We have all the times that you registered to do something tomorrow, but to be honest, because we are all a bit relaxed and nice people, if you are a bit early/late or do it twice or 3 times, we don’t mind…the key is that you bloody do it! 🙂

We will start the ball rolling at 10:45am with a Movement not Miracles stretch session on the Eat, Move, Be Happy Facebook group and round it all off with a Get Moving session at 5pm on the Get Moving Facebook Group.  Anyone can join in with us with these, and it will be great to see you all there and you can be as rude as you want to us in the comments 🙂

Passing the baton

The “passing” of the baton will be a virtual one, of course.  Using the Eat, Move, Be Happy Facebook group, feel free to:

  • Post any and all pics and vids of you doing your leg of the relay
  • Comment on everyone else’s efforts to cheer them on
  • Tag the next person in the schedule to let them know they need to get ready
  • Use the hashtag #LockDownRelayChallenge for everything so we can all find them!

And you will get bonus Brownie points if your pics and vids actually include your own, homemade baton (time to channel your inner Blue Peter).

You can see the schedule below…

Lockdown Relay Challenge

One of the things we have noticed during this period of Lockdown is the community spirit and creativity from the different people and groups we continue to work with and support with health and wellbeing. And there is a common theme – doing things together is better than doing them alone!

So, Rees Fitness is running a Lockdown Relay Challenge!

When is it?

Sunday 10th May between 11am and 5pm.

Who can take part?

Open to people from the Get Moving Group, Eat, Move, Be Happy Peer Support Group and Rees Fitness clients, whatever ability and fitness level.

What is it?

The aim is to complete 6 hours of activity as a relay challenge, starting with a group Movement not Miracles stretch session Live on Facebook and finishing with a Facebook Live Get Moving session. 

Each person can register their own 15 minute time slot to involve at least 5 minutes of activity. To get your time slot complete the form below.  If you are feeling energetic – and brave, you can register more than one time slot by submitting multiple times. And as this is a challenge it would be great if your activity has an element of personal challenge. 

Each time slot will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so choose yours now before it goes!

The aim is to fill each hour with different people completing their challenges. Depending on numbers, there may be more than one person completing their challenge in any time slot. Let’s hope we have lots of people so this happens!!

We will publish the activity schedule so you know who is passing the baton to you and who you are passing the baton on to. And we will keep the Eat, Move, Be Happy Facebook Group updated with progress throughout the day.

You choose your activity challenge, then when you have finished, rest! But don’t forget to send your photos, during or after your activity, to the Eat, Move, Be Happy Facebook Group.  We want to make a nice big gallery.

For those creative people amongst you please feel free to make your own baton to show off in the pics. There may be a prize for the most ingenious baton passing idea. Enjoy the challenge!
