If You Let the Weather Stop You, You'll Never Get Anything Done!

Great Britain is famous for many things, but good weather isn't one of them. Although I appreciate when the sun does show its face, it can be discouraging when dark, low-lying clouds hang over my apartment and drizzly rain driven by frigid winds finds its way under my collar sending a shiver down my spine. In fact the only souls crazy enough to brave a slushy Saturday morning are the hardcore runners and Jehovah's Witnesses.

I, on the other hand, would like to do nothing more than curl up by the stove with a book in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. So much for my regular exercise routine. Or is it? Well, if we were all to use the UK winters as an excuse to not exercise, then we might as well hibernate until Spring. At least that way we'd stop eating for four or five months!

Realistically though, what can be done to beat the winter weather without becoming hardcore, exercising masochists? Check out the great suggestions given in the NHS article: Exercising in winter. Click here to read!

A New Year's Resolution You May Actually Keep!

We've all paid for a gym membership in January just to cancel it again in February. We've all started a cleanse or a new diet or a ridiculous exercise program just to give up weeks or even days later. Why? Are we all pathetic, lazy bums doomed to never shed those last 8 kilos?

While a New Year's resolution may be well intended, it is rarely realistic. In fact, we often expect to go from no exercise each day to hours. That will never happen. But it doesn't mean that you have to give up before you start. Rather, this year, try and make more realistic, long-term goals. 

Professional trainer, Melissa Tucker, in her blog article, Say No-No to the Yo-Yo!, explains how it is possible to make health goals and stick to them. Click here to read!

A Testimonial to Remember: Collette and Bob

When we received this testimonial from Collette we were proud and touched that Purica's Recovery was able to make such a difference in this family's life. We're sure that you'll enjoy this testimonial and, who knows, it just might raise your curiosity to try Recovery for yourself.

              "I first came across Recovery in early 2010. My horse Bob (which I bought in 2008) had been suffering with many problems before I bought him, including mites, foot infections, arthritis and chronic laminitis. I had been working on eliminating these problems via massive lifestyle changes and correct medications. I had also noticed a significant stiffness in his joints and his movement was extremely impeded - he could just about walk 9 (not with any fluidity and grace though) and certainly would not / could not trot when ridden. I had tried various joint neutraceuticals on the market (not cheap ones) with which I had seen success in the past with other horses. They made no difference to him. My vet had suggested the use of steroidal injections. I was uneasy about taking this path so I started to research further. It was then that I came  across Recovery EQ. It seemed expensive and another down side was that I had the inconvenience of importing it from Canada. Anyway, it seemed very interesting. I am a chemist by training and I researched all the ingredients and how Recovery works and decided to give it a go. Two weeks into feeding Recovery to my horse I thought I would take my horse out for a trial ride. I did not expect to see any real result, but gave it a go nonetheless. I asked my friend to bring out her slowest horse to accompany mine so that I wasn't left too far behind. Result-- MY HORSE WAS IN THE LEAD TROTTING AWAY MERRILY!!! I was thrilled!
I then started to wonder if Recovery could help me. I was having some stiffness in my hips, but of great concern to me was the fact that I couldn't lift my arm above my head. I lead an active life with my horses, and these factors were starting to limit me. I started on the Recovery capsules, and within 4 weeks I could feel an improvement. Within 6 weeks I had no problems, and have remained that way ever since. My husband also started to take Recovery after both the horse`s and my improvements, and he has also experienced improvement in his painful knee and shoulder. We are all on Recovery now and I make it a priority in our life."

What's Your Excuse?: Why We Don't Exercise Regularly and What to Do About It

Exercise is a four-letter word in some circles. Many of us prefer denial, reasoning that if I don't talk about it is isn't really a problem. Well, we all know how well that reasoning works! And we've all tried a New Year's resolution (in vain, I might add) to get ourselves moving.

Why then, when I know I should, is it so damn hard to get my butt off the couch and to the gym? Would you be surprised to hear that the less you exercise, the less you want to? In fact, a healthy dose of exercise gives you more energy. This is what professional training coach, Melissa Tucker, explains in her article: I'm Too Tired to Exercise in the blog. Therefore, in an effort to reduce laziness and get those "To Do"s ticked off, let's all follow Melissa's advice! Click here to read the full article!

Has Your Sleep Debt Been Sent to Collections?

Most of us would agree that a certain amount of sleep debt is inevitable. There's always far too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. This leads to less sleep, which adds to a chronic feeling of fatigue, which leads to getting even less done than we did before, which leads to staying up later to finish the left over tasks, which leads to even less sleep! Sound familiar?

This downward spiral may just seem like one of the less enjoyable facts of life. However, there is something that can be done to lessen the sleep debt you've racked up and to give your body a little more TLC without dropping the 1000 tasks your juggling at the moment.

It's Not Only What You Eat, But How...

Have you ever felt like you're on the perpetual diet? Who of us hasn't, at the very least, started a diet in the last six months? Why, then, do I feel like I'm in a rut going nowhere? Why am I not losing weight and why don't I feel better?

A balanced diet is one of the keys to staying healthy and reaching your ideal weight. That said, there is plenty of research out there suggesting that how we eat is just as important as what we eat. What does that mean? Check out the blog article: Better Digestion for Better Nutrition written by holistic nutritionist Tawnya Ritco. Click here to read!
