Roadmaps & Re-opening As today marks the move towards re-opening certain sectors of the sports and leisure industry, it is exciting to see society opening up. As we work through the current road map here at MOVE.Studio, we are looking at being able to start group sessions within the studio from 17th May and I'll be informing you nearer the time on the timetable as well the sessions available to book. MEANWHILE...

Have a wonderful Christmas break. Well, what a year of changes and pivoting it's been here! Back in March I really didn't expect to have spent so much time getting used to so much technology and to be seeing you all via zoom but it has worked! It's kept us connected, it's kept us moving and it's been the way in which we have had to come together for the much of 2020. I invested in equipment I hadn't expected to be purchasing as well as learning all about Facebook lives and getting the classes to as many of you as possible. I'm sure many of you had never expected to be hearing me in your living rooms or bedrooms so frequently either! NEW YEAR PLANS! From Monday 4th January we have a variety of 6 week online courses that are taking place via Zoom.

The answer is resounding YES! I've been enjoying bringing you November's self-care challenge through my Facebook page and we are only halfway through the month. I hope you've been gaining some insights into new habits that you can take away from it. Tailor it to what you need as I cover a wide range of challenges from diet and nutrition through to specific exercises that target a certain area of your body. alongside breathe work. So far we've covered some delicious smoothie offerings, essential foot care, taking time to rest effectively as well as my bi-weekly Facebook live bonus sessions within my Facebook page. If you haven't joined us already, you can access the page here. Lockdown 2.0 has brought it's fair share of stress and uncertainty to this month. As I type my local school has just closed its doors so that brings about its own challenges!! It's increasingly important to ensure we give ourselves time to nurture from the inside out, take that extra 20 minutes to do a breathing exercise to ensure you can be more grounded and able to deal with all that the day brings. I'd love to know what you are finding helpful within the challenge or anything you'd like me to cover in the next half of the month...

Sunday habits to prepare you for the week ahead If you are anything like me you will spend most of Sunday worrying about all the things you need to do in the week ahead rather than relaxing and enjoying your Sunday. Sunday is the perfect day to schedule and reset.  With that in mind, here are a few Sunday habits to help you prep for a new week with less stress. Write a to-do list for the week Think about what you have to do next week. Don’t worry about prioritising, just write. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with everything you need to do, this will give you a clear vision and prepare you for what’s to come. After you do that, you can start prioritising. Write down a schedule After you write your to-do list, write down your schedule, appointments, meetings and other things. This will make you feel more prepared to handle what’s to come. And aside from scheduling things you “have” to do, don’t forget to make room for fun things or even self-care activities, as well. Give meal prep a go Do you ever get home from a long day at work and struggle to decide what you’re making for dinner? Or maybe you actually decided but soon realised there’s a key ingredient missing.  Meal prepping will save you a lot of time and stress. Whether that is simply thinking about the meals you’re having in the upcoming week, or taking a step further and actually preparing things in advance. Plan your outfits for the week This is not only a habit...

Today is #StressAwarenessDay, the aim of which is to identify and reduce stress factors in your life. With the 2nd National lockdown starting tomorrow, most of us will be feeling high levels of stress and it can be damaging to our health. We all have stress in our lives, some stress is good for us, it helps us to respond to changes in life.   However, too much stress can cause harm to our health and relationships. Once we identify the cause of stress in our lives, we can begin to eliminate or reduce stress. Exercise helps us to let go of built-up anxiety. Eating a balanced diet fuels our bodies so we’re able to better cope with the stress. We need to take care of our physical, mental and emotional well-being. The most crucial thing you can do when you are stressed or anxious is to make sure you are continuing to look after yourself.  Make time to relax, you need to learn to say no to requests that are too much for you. Why not use this time during lockdown to turn actions into habits, I encourage you to carry out one action a day, for your physical, mental and emotional well-being. It takes 30 days to turn actions into habits.  Set yourself a challenge to look after yourself.  We all need to think more about self-care.  Take time out of your day to relax or do something that you enjoy.   Today, I will take time out and relax in the bath. What will you do today to take care of yourself? Sarah...
