SMP #020: What exactly is health and well-being? [Health, Well-being and Fitness]

We often hear the words Health and Well-being. Perhaps, someone might ask you the question "How's your health" but do they ever ask you "how's your well-being"? Probably not.. In this podcast, I start with some standard definitions for health and well-being. It can be a very difficult subject to disseminate because of the "human dynamic", however, if I reflect, recall and share my own experience it might give you that additional perspective, that "Eureka" moment.


SMP #019: How To Boost Your Motivation For Fitness [Health, Well-being and Fitness]

As a qualified personal trainer, I offer my top tips based upon the SMART approach and how to be realistic with the targets that you set to ensure you don't "burn out" and/or become demotivated. It's just straight-forward "apple pie" stuff and nothing with regard to magic bullets that make you invincible or give you an overnight 6-pack...sorry. It just takes a little bit of hard work and most importantly commitment. Hope you enjoy the show.

Workplace bullying is a big concern going forward for many employers and I was fortunate in tempting Heather to come back and do a Podcast or Volg on the same.
