Many of us look back at our adolescent years as a time of adventure, freedom and fun, but for one paralympian, Jack Eyers, his adolescent years were engraved with perhaps one of the life’s hardest challenges – having his leg amputated. Read Jack’s story and learn about the real-life challenges and successes of a paralympian.
We know that people who buy their lunches out are more likely to consume more calories, sugar and salt each day. On top of this, the average lunch bought out could cost you around £35 each week – so by making your own lunch just three times a week you could save yourself over £1000 each year!
Our ability to adapt to stressful situations and life events also known as our emotional resilience, is influenced by many factors including biological variables, self awareness and regulation, mental agility, optimism, flexibility and relationships. Elevate offer a series of resilience workshops which look at all of these factors in detail. One of the most popular workshops amongst the series is the Learned Optimism workshop – our Founder Lucy Faulks shares her top three take away tips below.
Often we wait until we’re at the point of burnout, experiencing physical pain or have an injury before we’d consider booking a massage. Massages can feel indulgent, even selfish and we can end up criticising ourselves for not having the strength to deal with stress like our peers can. However, if we knew the surprising benefits of massage for both our mental and physical health, we might start viewing them as a necessity not just a treat.
Our co-founder Ruth ran a workshop for the Women’s Leadership Network at Mastercard this month on ‘Optimum foods for optimum health and performance’. She shares her top 5 tips for eating to fuel your body and mind in a busy workday.
We caught up with Chris Cooney, 28 from London, about his mental health condition and how he handles it in the workplace.
Here at Elevate we don’t believe in quick fixes or detox diets. We also don’t believe in spending January (one of the coldest, darkest months) depriving ourselves of the things that make us happy and feeling like we need to punish ourselves for the indulgences of the holidays. Nope!
So, the Christmas hype is over… we have probably overindulged on both food and drink over the holidays (and quite rightly so) but feeling like we need to get our bodies ‘back to normal’ after all the ‘treats’ we have allowed ourselves. But let’s think about this for a minute; what
will you get out of a ‘detox’ diet or a calorie restricting diet, or even just a 3 day ‘juice cleanse’? I can confidently answer this question with the response ‘absolutely nothing positive’.
As a nutritionist I get requests every year from magazines and journalists asking me for tips and quotes on ways to ‘avoid the festive weight gain’ or for ‘guilt-free Christmas recipes’. And if your inbox and twitter feed looks anything like mine, it’ll currently be full to the brim with ‘survival guides’, ‘action plans’ and ‘strategies’ for avoiding the ‘dreaded Christmas weight gain’ (*unfollow). Anyone would think that we’re preparing for going into battle, rather than entering the festive season.
On Friday, we hosted our launch event at Campus London.
The theme for the morning was ‘Building Resilience in the Workplace’ – one that was timely since today sees World Mental Health Day with the theme ‘Mental health in the workplace’.
Poor mental health no doubt has a severe impact on employees, but it also has huge repercussions for employers. It’s Time to Start Talking About Mental Health in the Workplace
Many of you will have seen the BBC One documentary ‘Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets’ and as a nutritionist with a qualification (not bought off the internet), I thought I’d share my thoughts on the #cleaneating phenomenon.
