Change is hard – how to make successful changes.

Changing your behaviour is a very difficult thing to do. How many times have you set a New Year’s resolution only to break it before the end of January? I’ve done this countless times.

Active Women Interview – meet Della Skeates

Knee pain is a common reason for people to stop exercising, particularly running.

Following my Passion

This is in some ways the hardest post I’ve ever written but in other ways the easiest too. Any eagle-eyed followers will have noticed some subtle, yet huge changes in my social media bios and ‘About Me’ pages. All I have done is take out two letters but in doing so I have changed the direction of my life. What are those two letters? G and P.

Active Women Interview – meet Sarah Clancy

Today I’d like to introduce Sarah Clancy. She is running a campaign called Wild In Herts to inspire families and children to get more active and explore in and around Hertfordshire. Her passion for activity shone through in this campaign so I got in touch and asked her if she would take part in this Active Women Interview series so we could all benefit from a little of her enthusiasm!
