Each month I join Tony Fisher during his afternoon show on BBC Essex. We cover everything and anything related to health, fitness and well being. On this page you can find out more on all the topics we discuss and see us in action.
If you have any questions you'd like us to cover on the show you can post a comment at the bottom of this page or email me direct (click here). Now take a look at everything we covered on the show.
Tuesday 14th November
The video from today will appear here soon. In the mean time you can enjoy what happened the last time I was on air.
HOW TO THINK RIGHT
I started The Accumulator Jug of Goodness on 1st January as a way to help me think right (you can read more about the jug here). I can't tell you how much this little task has made a difference to my life.
When I started doing this earlier in the year I made a conscious effort to compliment people more. It's a simple habit to adopt, costs nothing and it feels great. Not only does it lift the mood of the person receiving the compliment it makes the giver feel good too. So I started doing it and now it's a habit to the point where I don't think about doing it ... it's part of me.
So give it a try, set yourself a daily goal, aim to give three compliments to three different people. It doesn't have to be people you know either. That act of making someone else feel good (or it could even make their day) makes you feel good too. Try it ... do it every day because it will become a great habit.
You can find out more about this on the video above and click here to learn about more habits that will make you feel good.
HOW TO EAT RIGHT
Are you a big bread eater? One of my clients is and I'm helping him develop habits that stop him relying on the bread as much. He eats toast for breakfast, takes a sandwich to work and then comes home to a big bowl of pasta or some other carb heavy meal. So I've set him the challenge of taking something non bread based into work for 3 days a week.
This is one of the lunches I have suggested for him and he has adopted another great habit too, batch cooking. There's more information in the video above and here's the recipe that Tony sampled this month, Chicken Jamabalaya. Click here to find out how to make it yourself.
HOW TO MOVE RIGHT
Here's another great habit we should all be adopting and another challenge for you to work on this month. Spending less time at 90 degrees. We do way too much sitting down and it's not healthy. It weakens important muscles and can even cause cancer.
So take a look at the video above and learn a little more through this link (click here) (oh and you will love the video with the pooping unicorn).
I'd like you to try spending at least 15 minutes out of every hour NOT at 90 degrees. You can stand, go for a walk, sit lower, or squat like I'm doing in this picture (if you can). However you choose to do it try to spend less time at 90 degrees.
I'll be back with Tony on BBC Essex on Friday 15th Decemberr. In the mean time if you have a question, need some help or to discuss anything we've covered please get in touch. You can comment below or email me here.
