Are you finding it hard to get back into work-life after the holidays?
Have you let your health go over the festive season? You’re not alone!
Many of us struggle to find the motivation to deal with the extra weight that creeps on over Christmas.

How to Survive Christmas Party Season
Dreaming of getting a good night’s sleep? You are not alone. It is estimated that over 1.2 million of us struggle to get good rest and that can make your life difficult. Sleep is as important to your health as diet and exercise. If you don’t get the sleep you need, you don’t restore and refresh your body and your brain and as a result you don’t function as well as you could. You can’t focus or concentrate—and in addition, sleep problems increase the risk factors for a whole lot of medical issues including heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Slim Down Naturally
Party season is officially upon us. Late nights and dinners of canapés, crisps and champagne are about to take your social calendar by storm. But don’t panic. You can still enjoy the festive season without losing all of the health and fitness you’ve worked so hard to gain.

There’s plenty to love about standing. It reduces your rate of heart disease, lowers you blood sugars and cholesterol and helps with weight loss. Sitting too much raises your risks of death even if you exercise regularly, say the experts. But standing all day is not good for you either. It can compress the spine and lead to lower back problems. It’s the combination of sitting and standing that maximises the health benefits. So, are you following the correct rules when it comes to using your stand-up desk?
