In this series, I write about life changing health and wellness tips for the family.
The One Minute Workout
Three 20-second bursts is all it takes to significantly improve your health. One minute.
The catch? You must simply make it a very intense minute. A McMaster University study was published in April 2016 and shows that one minute of high intensity exercise (HIIT or Maximum Intensity Training Interval aka MITI) can have the same benefits of exercising for 45 minutes. And seriously, who can’t do something, anything for one minute a day? Do a YouTube search for one minute workouts or simply do three, 20-second sprints to get your daily dose.
I recently read Tim Ferris’ new book, Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.
This is definitely going to be my most gifted book, it’s that good. Not just a good book, but more of a reference guide to life or “ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools”. It’s huge – full of interviews with some heavy duty, world-class performers, from athletes to billionaires to Special Operations Commanders, who share how they excel in life.
This book covers topics from money to health to happiness and offers a ton of useful, inspiring and practical tips that are more than worthy of taking up precious desk space.
What?! A Non-Invasive, Affordable Cure for Cellulite
This is huge on Instagram but new to me. Apparently many, many women are getting rid of their cellulite, in their own privacy, using a simple massage-like tool. The theory, stated by sports performance trainer Ashley Black Guru, is that cellulite is not a fat issue, but caused by distortions in your connective tissue or fascia. She created the FasciaBlaster – basically a plastic rod with claw-like things attached to it that you briskly rub on your skin, to breeak up bad fascia, restore good fascia and reduce cellulite. Really, there are so many more benefits to this process. This story is not over – I’m intrigued so stay tuned for the follow up 🙂 In the meantime, if you’re as intrigued as I was, check out the FasciaBlaster YouTube videos.
