Rebecca Joseph Jewellery

I have a real soft spot for jewellery and being married to a man who absolutely DOES NOT shower me in gifts, I have to seek, find and buy my own gems! I came across Yoga Bunny, Rebecca Joseph’s first collection, through a mutual friend.

Is the Health and Fitness Industry damaging people’s Body Image?

0

RANT ALERT! RANT ALERT! – if you are a naked-abs-selfie-fitness professional- lover, prepare to maybe be either offended or
enlightened. (Hopefully the later 😉 ).

Body image continues to be a battle amongst many women and men. According to The British Dictionary, Body Image can be defined as ‘The subjective concept of one’s physical appearance based on self-observation and reactions of others’.

Pilates, why should I do it? Your no nonsense guide to exercise

6

Pilates has been incredibly popular in the UK for the past 30 years. It has grown and developed and become a staple of the exercise industry. Many people have been recommended to do Pilates for a variety of reasons, but many do not take up this advice because they do not know what it actually is.

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates (yes that is actually his surname!), who was born in Germany in 1883. Joesph was a very sickly child suffering from rickets, asthma and rheumatic fever. He in fact was so ill that the doctors at the time said he would not live very long. This spurred Joseph to get as fit as possible and train in Yoga, boxing, weightlifting and martial arts.

Top 3 Healthy Cookery Books

0

Quinoa Risotto from Helmsley & HelmsleyOver the last year, the healthy cookery book scene has literally exploded.

I think this explosion is partly down to the popularity of food blogs, the rise in Instagram and Society’s general shift in attitude as to what it means to be healthy. These factors along with others, has brought healthy eating to the forefront of many people’s minds.

This rise in popularity and interest is of course only a good thing (in my opinion), however I have been surprised at the high percentage of these ‘healthy cookery books’ which are complied by (for the want of a better phrase) ‘non-professionally trained chefs / cooks’.

My experience of following healthy recipes from self proclaimed food bloggers has been a mixed bag. Some have been absolutely fantastic, some  pretty awful (just ask my husband!).

Body Confidence: The Music Industry

Lisa Friend

I have just begun a series of interviews about body confidence, body image and losing weight for my show ‘Real Health with Rebecca Dalby‘ for the fantastically inspirational radio station, Astute Radio.

I kicked off this important series by starting a conversation with Lisa Friend, a world renown solo concert flautist and recording artist.

In this straight talking, honest interview, Lisa shares her experiences and pressures she faces within the classical music industry, performing on stage and becoming a mother. This year Lisa had hip surgery due to degenerative arthritis and is now in a period of rehabilitation whilst still working and taking care of her young family.

IMG_1715Happy New Year to you! I hope that you had a lovely Christmas and caught up on sleep, family and friends. These are my three favourite things which the festive season often delivers in abundance!

Each Christmas me and my husband collectively receive a stack of books offering inspiration and insights on an array of subjects. I have tucked into ‘Unplugged – how to live mindfully in a digital world‘ by Orianna Fielding. Although this is pretty ironic considering I am writing this blog on my Macbook and once I finish writing I will share the blog over social media etc, but hang on in there…..

SpinningWell Happy Christmas! At the beginning of the Christmas week and on the verge of going back to my parents, I have been thinking about my exercise routine. Amongst the festivities exercise can go completely out of the window, but over the last few years I have actually developed a habit of keeping active every day through Christmas.

Bee Pollen

IMG_1493Bee pollen sprung onto my breakfast scene earlier this year when my sister-in-law brought me some back from Spain. Admittedly I had not heard about its ‘superfood’ status before. Since then I have noticed it pop up in some health food shops and cafes in London.  This is no surprise as these tiny balls are packed full of goodness and an easy addition to your meals, particularly breakfast.

IADMS 2014Last week I had the absolute pleasure of traveling to Basel in Switzerland, to attend the 24th Annual meeting of the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science. I have attended a few times and is always great to hear about the latest research into the dance science and medicine field.

One of the best ways to learn and experience this research is through the movement sessions. This year I seemed to be in the studio even more than usual. I attended some fantastic workshops and here are a couple of the highlights:
