How To Stay Fit From Home

Seeing as gyms are still closed, I have listed some alternatives to get those endorphins flowing! Exercising was one of my favourite times of day during the lockdown as it was something that I had never really made time for before and now it has become crucial to me. Here are some of my favourite things you can do to move and break out of that rut.



1. Skipping
Skipping is such a good exercise and it is sometimes overlooked. Simply doing it for 10 minutes can have the same effect as running for 30. It is fun and efficient. 

2. Chloe Ting
After seeing so many people rave about these workouts, I decided to give them a go and it is safe to say that they do not disappoint! Chloe Ting's workout videos on youtube are quick and easy to do as minimal equipment is required. There are exercises suited to different levels so it is simple to find one that works for you!

As you might have read in my 14 things to try if you are stressed post I have never really enjoyed Yoga but after stumbling across this Youtube Channel the 30-day challenge is one of my new favourite ways to start the day.

4. Running
Back in March, running was something that I never thought I would do but it is all down to the Nike Run Club app which motivated me from being a couch potato to being able to run for several miles. The app includes guided runs and warm-up/cool-down exercises with professionals. If you are beginning to get into running I also recommend the BBC Couch to 5k App. Running has really made me appreciate living in the countryside and being able to get out and about under such conditions. 

I have been using this app for many years to do workouts at home and in the gym. It is my all-time favourite and I know that I can just go to it on a lazy day and feel heaps better for it 20 minutes later.

6. Dance
 Sometimes I put on a playlist (Amazon Music - click here), grab my weights and just move for 30 minutes non-stop. This is a super fun way to workout and benefits you as well as you can literally do whatever feels good. For other Dance Party Workouts check out 'Madfit' on Youtube.

Advice For New Year 11s

 It has been a funny year for us all. Exams were cancelled for the first time in over 60 years and it was a strange experience indeed. Here, I have a few tips that are specifically going to help the upcoming year 11s, although, I do think anyone can apply them.  I know that I would have loved to see a post like this, this time last year as it is worrying to think about! 1. Use Your Planner Whether it's an ordinary planner issued by your school or an academic diary it is really important that you use this. You will need it to write down dates for exams, deadlines for homework notes so you don't forget items. My planner was a huge help and I have no idea how I would have survived without it. They are issued for a reason so make sure you use them! 2. Keep Yourself Organised This kind of runs off from my previous point, but by simply ensuring that your folders are organised, you are saving yourself a lot of time. Maybe sit down every other week and organise any loose sheets so that

When Shadows Fall - Sita Brahmachari Blog Tour

 Welcome back! Today's blog post is an extra special one, dedicated to Sita Brahmachari's new book, 'When Shadows Fall'.  Aside, from its stunning cover, and the book focuses on the poignant tale of Kai, Orla, Zak and Omid, 4 friends who are in their youths. Sita takes you on a tale through their troublesome teenage years ending at the age of eighteen, post-A-Level Results Day.  The novel is illustrated beautifully by the talented Natalie Sirett , a great friend of Sita's.  The novel follows the lives of this friendship group, 13, 14, 15-year-olds with no place to go, who are outsiders from the rest of society. Sita's aim was to document the children she saw over a period of many years, being outsiders, having no place in the world. This is strongly seen through the character of Kai. Having become friends with Natalie over 25 years ago, when their children were young, this is Sita and Natalie's first book together. Sita described it as 'This book is the

Bi-DEN Trump

 This article is a little outdated but I thought I would post it to the blog this week as a different read, it is related to recent events in America. Enjoy! The article was written in November 2020, a week after a victory was declared for current US president Joe Biden. Image: NBCNews.com Well, what an extraordinary year 2020 has been for many of us, impacting us in some way or shape, and for many defining our future! One of the biggest news stories alongside COVID-19 has been the political events that have happened in the US; for many the biggest election in the history of the United States. That’s right, earlier this month over 155 million people voted and used their political voice, the biggest voter turnout ever in the US. Not only this, but a fantastic historical achievement was made; Kamala Harris became the first elected female vice president - an achievement definitely worth celebrating from across the pond! With it being the most talked about and publicised election ever you
