Benefits of swimming

Benefits of swimming

I have a new hobby! My Bollywood dance lessons got cancelled because there weren’t enough participants so I had to find something else. And I decided to try swimming! I have no idea where that came from, but it’s great.

Right now I only go for a swim about once a week – in the morning before I go to work – but you know what? I love it. I absolutely love it. What a great way to start a day.

Swimming is not just fun and relaxing though, it’s really good for you as well. Read on to find more about the benefits of swimming.

Looking for workout music? Here’s 40 high energy workout songs

workout music: 40 workout songs

I need music when I’m working out. I mean I really need it. It gives me tons of energy and just makes me feel… can I say it? Well… cool. Is that a bit sad? That a 36 years old woman wants to feel ”cool”. 🙂

Anyway, I’m always looking for good workout music. The songs don’t have to be in the charts right now – a lot of them were actually popular in the 90s (when I was young) – but they have to be good.

So I’ve made a list for you. A list of 40 workout songs for gym, running or dancing.

How to stop food cravings

How to stop food cravings

When you try to lose weight you get food cravings. Why? Because you have taught your body and your brain to a certain type of diet – a diet that has made you gain weight.

Obviously, you know it wasn’t that good for your health. So it is inevitable, there will be cravings.

Now, I’ve written about this a little bit before: About how to get rid of sugar and also about healthy alternatives to sweet cravings.
