Low-impact exercise – Cycling puts little pressure on your knees, ankles, hips and joints, which in turn prevents knee and joint injuries.

It’s hard to get exercise when you are holding down a full time office job and are tied down to your desk for eight hours a day. Many office workers, due to the hectic nature of their jobs, may lack the time to fit in a regular exercise regime into their hard day at work.

But sitting down for eight hours or more can lead to a myriad of health issues, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

So then, here are some quick tips on how you can work out and be more active whilst in the office.

1) Use the stairs

Instead of the lift, take the stairs instead to get to the floor where your office is located.

Doing so will help to give you a bit of a workout and burn calories at the same time. In fact, climbing stairs burns five times as many calories as taking the lift.

2) Take stretching breaks

For every hour that you spend sitting, take five minutes off to stretch yourself. This will help to reduce stress and improve your posture and in turn, your productivity, at the same time.

3) Walk

Try to incorporate some form of walking into your day in the office. For example instead of simply eating at the office cafeteria, why not walk over to the cafe or coffee shop at the next block and get your lunch from there instead?

Or else if you drive to work, why not park at the lot furthest away so that you can get in a short walk?

Alternatively for those taking public transport, get off the bus or train one stop away from your office, and walk the rest of the way?

It will help too if you get a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps per day.

4) Swap your desk chair for an exercise ball

Why not swap your comfortable desk chair with a bouncy exercise ball occasionally?

Doing this will improve your posture and strengthen your core muscles at the same time.

5) “Circuit Training”

Try and come up with a “circuit training” regime that you can do easily in the office.

For example, you can aim to do 10 squats every hour, or target 10 lunges each time you get up to go to the restroom. This will keep you active.

My first overseas marathon was the Gold Coast Airport Marathon. I learnt a lot from the experience of running overseas. Based on what I went through, I would like to share some simple tips with you.

Check the weather

Find out what the weather conditions including temperature are like, in the country that you are going to run in. This will help you to pack appropriately, for example, to decide if you need to bring additional jackets or thermal wear.

Pack your own gels and nutrition

Do not rely on the gels and race nutrition provided in the race, especially if you have a sensitive stomach and the brand of gels is something that you have never eaten before. Instead, it is safest to pack your own, as you will be familiar with how the gels react to your body. This will help you to run a good timing too.

Sightsee after the race

It can be very tempting to book tours and sightsee the city upon arriving, but try and hold these off until after the race. This is because being on your feet all day, exploring and looking around, can have an impact on you when you run the race. Don’t risk making yourself more fatigue and in turn affect your race timing.

Do a shakeout run

Shaking out your legs with a run soon after you arrive at the destination is usually good. This is because it is a great way to help you to adapt to the weather and know what it would feel like when you are running the race. This will help you to make last minute changes to your race strategy accordingly.

Run with your essentials

You never know what will happen during a long race such as a marathon: You might get injured or your body may act up causing you to pull out of the race. So, make sure that you have your essentials on you, such as your credit card, cash and your mobile phone. You may need these if something goes wrong.

That’s it, some fine-tuning tips for running in a race overseas. Having said these, racing overseas is still an enjoyable experience which I would highly encourage everyone to experience at least once. Till my next post, keep training!

10 minutes or less?? No problems!

Here is how to fix your face in 10 minutes if you are pressed for time, especially for us working moms!

1) Always cleanse and moisturise.

2) Use a skincare serum for a smooth base. My preferred serum Astarism is available online at www.astavita.sg.

3) Use a light foundation or bb cushion for some coverage and to even out the skin tone.

4) Never skip this step which is to conceal, especially your under eyes. It immediately brightens up your face .

5) Fill your brows lightly.

6) Skip the eyeshadow but definitely DO NOT skip the mascara. Layer a coat or 2 onto those lashes.

7) Blush away with a coral or pink hue to add some colour and warmth.

8) Finally a lip gloss or lip tint for a a natural pucker.

To save time , skip the brushes and use your fingers for application. It also gives a more natural polished finish.

Till next time!

Wonder why our hair looks dry, dull and even thinning for no reason?

Here are my tips that I have been following recently and have found a difference in the quality of my hair. Hope it helps.

  • Wash your hair every one to two days especially if you have oily hair like me. Bear in mind though that washing your hair too often is not advisable as it strips the natural oils of the hair, causing it to be dry and frizzy.
  • Another trick I swear by is to comb your hair in the shower before shampooing. I found that it helps with fall outs. Also, important to use your fingertips and massage the scalp as it stimulates blood flow which is beneficial for your roots.
  • Moisturise your hair enough as hair loses moisture quickly. I used to avoid conditioner as I thought it would cause my hair to be even more oily. Using the right for your hair type is important. Use a balm and rub it in your hair avoiding the scalp area and same thing with a hair mask
  • This one is my favourite new discovery! Instead of towel drying my wet hair, I blot it with a cotton-t or cloth. Towels are rough and damages your hair follicles.
  • Diet plays a huge role in the way our hair looks. Always include protein plant /animal protein into your diet. Zinc is another mineral to include which can be found in eggs, avocado and nuts or seeds for healthy shiny hair.

These are my current tips and tricks. Try it out and let me know if you notice a difference in the quality of your hair.

Till next time,

Mona Gill

It is the season to be merry and jolly but it can also get very overwhelming and stressful with Christmas around the corner. For many of us, that can send our stress levels through the roofs.

Year end is always an overwhelming time for me and many people I know. As busy as I am, I find that taking care of myself is the most important, so I can be a better mother, daughter and friend.

Here are some tips to ease the holiday stress so we can stay calm, energised, full of love and gratitude this jolly season.

1) Start your day with 20 minutes of moving your body. Instead of rushing through a high intensity workout, do some easy asanas or take a yin yoga class just to slow down and breathe and set the tone for the day.

2) Do some downward facing dogs when you can. This mini inversion relieves stress and encourages blood flow and calms the nervous system. Hold this pose for at least five breaths each time.

3) Lie on your back with your legs up against a wall. One of my favourite positions to keep calm, cool and collected. Stay in this position for about five minutes or even ten minutes and keep your eyes closed . It is important to breathe naturally and keep the lengths of the breaths similar and remember to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

4) Meditation. This sounds too easy but trust me it is so difficult to do without getting distracted. I recommend starting with ten minutes. The focus should be once again on your breath. Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position or lotus position, palms on your knees facing up, close your eyes and focus on your breathing and try to clear your mind.

5) Tree pose for balancing. Whenever I do this pose it really reminds me to stay grounded during stressful times. We tend to not be balanced when stressed out so this balancing pose is a great reminder and if you fall out just get back into it. The idea is to gain stability and breathe and hold for as long as you can.

Anything that involves conscious breathing as I have mentioned above triggers the parasympathetic nervous system. This conscious trigger helps relax and boost energy. I hope these tips helps you ease some holiday stress so that you can have more fun and enjoy with your loved ones this season.

Namaste
