ARNICA

Arnica is a genus with about 30 perennial, herbaceous species, belonging to the sunflower family. The genus name Arnica may be derived from the Greek arna, “lamb”, in reference to the soft, hairy leaves.

Several species, such as Arnica montana and A. chamissonis, contain helenalin, a sesquiterpene lactone that is a major ingredient in anti-inflammatory preparations (used mostly for bruises). Arnica has been used by people for hundreds of years, even going back to the 1500’s to relieve pain and heal injuries.

Arnica is also known by the names Mountain Tobacco and, somewhat confusingly, Leopard’s bane and Wolfsbane—two names

ECHINACEA

Several species of the echinacea plant are used to make medicine from its leaves, flower, and root.

Sometimes people apply echinacea to their skin to treat boils, abscesses, skin wounds, ulcers, burns, eczema, psoriasis, UV radiation skin damage, herpes simplex, bee stings, and hemorrhoids.

Helpful Tips

STAY MINDFUL

From Facebook notifications, emails and Insta tags, distractions come from all angels and it’s all too east to get distracted from what’s truly important. We’ve all heard again and again that meditation will help us relax and “be present.”. Staying in the present moment takes practice, but a few minutes each day is all that’s needed to establish your mindfulness practice. There are no reminders to be mindful unless you create them. The responsibility is in your hands. Staying in the present moment can dramatically reduce stress, increase your happiness, and give you bursts of insight that might change your life.

FLIP YOUR FOCUS

Forget counting calories this year, and instead make it your goal to eat fresh, high-quality foods. You’ll instantly dump the biggest flat-belly troublemakers like all things highly process, boxed, and full of synthetic hormones, pesticides, and genetically-modified ingredients. You don’t have to go vegan, low-carb, or even Paleo—just eat fresh and watch those kilos melt away.

WARM UP’S

Keep it dynamic

Include exercises such as the forward lunge, lateral squat or arm circles into your warmup.

Turn up the volume

Warm up is to music is a great way to place your mind on the right “track” for the workout ahead.

Jump around

Doing a few jumping jacks will help get your blood pumping. Warm–ups are not intended to be part of the workouts. Break a brief sweat but don’t work so hard that you build up lactic acid; save your energy for the actual workout. Your tempo should be quick and to the point

Perfect Medicine For Your Warm-Up

You’ve seen the medicine balls lying around the gym right? Well the are great for warming up. Grab them!

WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

There isn’t much you can do for your body that is better than getting in shape, staying in shape, and working out. It lowers all of the bad things (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc) and heightens all of the good things (muscles, stamina, etc). Owning an Android device won’t do these things for you but there are plenty of apps that can help you along the way. Mobile apps are ideal assistants for health, fitness, and weight-loss because they are always with us, and they’re quite personal. Maintaining fitness requires daily habits and lifestyle changes, and a few little nudges in the right direction from your mobile phone might make all the difference. Whatever you want to achieve in life, one thing for sure is that someone’s made an app for it which can help you make most things in life a heck of a lot easier.

STRETCH IT OUT

Throwing a leg on a bench and reaching for your toes is not a great warm-up. If you’re getting ready to run or bike, try firing up your muscles and boosting your heart rate and blood flow with some dynamic stretching: Pull one knee to your chest while standing, then alternate for a few reps on each side. Next kick each leg back and forth one at a time, slowly increasing speed to improve your range of motion, which will make the activity easier. One of the best things you can do to prevent muscle soreness is to warm-up and then exercises on the muscles you are focusing on during your workout session.

WORKOUT BETTER.

SLEEP EARLIER.

Aim to finish your workout at least three hours before turning in to ensure smooth sailing into dreamland. Breaking a sweat too close to bedtime might sabotage your sleep because cardio boosts blood flow, which can energize you and make it harder for your body to relax and doze off. Try to exercise no later than the early evening to give your body enough time to cool down and, well, get sleepy.

BENEFITS OF HIIT

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training as it’s name suggests is a workout / training technique where you go all-out. It’s one hundred percent of effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods ensuring you get maximum benefit from your workout. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns tons of calories in a short period of time. Benefits include, boosting your metabolism, help you lose fat and not muscle, it’s good for your heart health and is cost efficient because you need zero equipment. HIIT workouts offer new challenges and if you’re a beginner, it’s a quicker way to see results because you’re constantly pushing yourself out of your comfort zone which means you can never get bored with your workout!

GROUP TRAINING

Bored with the same old, same old at your gym? Yes, it’s a fantastic way to get fit, but it’s not the only way. You can enjoy a variety of workouts at home or outside that will give you the same great results and put a smile on your face at the same time!
Find a friend or two and maybe some work colleagues who have similar fitness goals, such as weight loss or who enjoy activities such as cross fit or the powering through the warrior race. Working out with your buddies will help you stay on track and hold you accountable to your exercise routine.

PLAY IT SAFE

You’ve finally made the commitment to get in shape or maybe to take your fitness to the next level. Eager to start seeing results, you jump into your new routine feet-first. And the next sound you hear is “ouch” as an unexpected injury stops you in your tracks! One of the best ways to avoid injuries is to know your body’s limitations. Always check in with your doctor before starting a new fitness program, stay hydrated and warm up properly. If you think your technique needs a little help, don’t be afraid to ask someone. Remember R.I.C.E method should injury occur.
