Nothing beats a long, relaxing soak in the bath after a crazy week. Why not try something a little different and reap the benefits of a citrus bath whilst kicking back and relaxing? Check out the benefits below;
Skin: A citrus bath works wonders for the skin, helping you feel and look totally refreshed. The acidity of the fruit helps remove dead #skin cells while providing a healthy dose #antioxidants which #detoxifies the body and provides #relaxation and #rejuvenation.
#Cellulite: Thanks to the super high concentration of #vitaminC, a citrus bath can help get rid of cellulite. The vitamin C helps stimulate #collagen which helps the skin retain elasticity.
Fight Infection: Citrus fruits, especially grapefruit, can rid the body of unhealthy bacteria.

Training is definitely therapy for me, my happy place 💜it keeps the mind clear and is the way I release my stresses of the day. I can deal with anything life throws at me when I train, when I don’t my mind becomes weak. This week has been hard, leaving the gym bcoz of discrimination, boxing fitness classes being axed...life seems all muddled up when my training schedule is messed up. Time to focus and sort it out. Today is a new day, plans have been made and goals have been re-set 🙌🏻👊🏻 training is life 😜 #gym#gymmotivation#training#weights#weightlifting#happyplace#clearmind#goals#achievement#therapy#igotthis xxx
Sometimes we just need a little de clutter.
I find that I feel the most at ease after I’ve just cleaned, sorted or organized major areas in my life (my friends probably are laughing because I’m so NOT the most organized human) but I really do try. When my house is clean, my dishes are put away and my work space is organized, I definitely feel more at peace.
Sometimes we get stuck in a routine and don’t realize how toxic the space around us is.
Today I encourage you to pick one or two spots in your life and DECLUTTER that sh*t 👌🏽 Comment below after you’ve done it and let me know HOW GOOD YOU FEEL 🧠❤️ #therapy#therapist#anxiety#depression#happiness#hope#fear#love#mft#lmfta#sadness#strength#determination#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth
Hoy tenemos una última infografia de la British Journal of Sport Medicine dónde nos explica cómo un programa de fuerza muscular de los aductores previene de dolores de cadera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Teniendo en cuenta que los dolores de la cadera o de la ingle en el futbol son muy comunes y que representan de un 4% a un 19% del total de las lesiones, es de vital importancia para el futbolista realizar una potenciación de aductores en su programa habitual de prevención. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En la infografía se observa un ejercicio en concreto para la activación del aductor largo, con una progresión de 3 niveles, sencillo y efectivo. ¿ A qué esperas a ponerlo en práctica? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If your weight exists outside of a socially defined ‘acceptable’ range, the people in your life are not automatically entitled to provide commentary on your body or debate ‘your health’ – especially without your consent. Your body is not the site of debate. You get to define and enforce the boundaries you need to take care of your mental health and wellbeing. You are in charge of your body. It’s yours. You’re allowed to be angry and upset if your boundaries are crossed.
You are allowed to outline your boundaries to family, friends, co-workers, employers of all kinds. You can tell them what’s off topic. This may feel really, really difficult especially since, particularly for those in larger bodies, there’s a notion that society has free reign with body comments – either health concerns/debates, or condescending weight loss claps and praise.
You also have agency at your doctor – or any other health professional. If they have trouble with your boundaries – I highly recommend, if there’s flexibility, to find another health professional/practioner/Dr who practices from a weight inclusive perspective and understands the social determinants of health.
