A Small Change for Better Health: Lunch break walks

Instead of using your lunch break to catch up on Facebook, why not take a brisk walk? A quick 15 minute walk will do the world of good in setting you up for the afternoon and ensuring that you have enough energy for the rest of the day. You might even see some strength and weight loss benefits from it! Breathe deeply, feel each muscle as you move, and go back to  your desk feeling refreshed.

The Buzzing HALE

Well Saturday morning kicked off with the third HALE for the year and I must admit it was our most successful yet. It’s funny how uplifting that kind of buzzing excitement can be. These HALEs (healthy active lifestyle events) are such a great opportunity for our ambassadors, members, and challenge leaders, and we’re all feeling quite excited about how well they are being received.

This weekend we kicked off our own extra special challenge between the various members. Everyone has a month (between Saturday’s HALE and the next one) to get serious about their Healthy Active Lifestyle and do some serious improvements to those Tanita numbers. That’s right, even the challenge leaders have jumped up on the scale and we’re all in friendly competition with one another to take our healthy lifestyles to the next level. I’m quite keen to see what comes out of that.

Here’s wishing you all an incredible week of health and wellness!

A Small Change for Better Health: Take your own food to work

Instead of allowing your midday hunger to dictate what you grab from the deli for sustenance at lunchtime, why not rather pack your lunch in the morning? That way you can control what you’re ingesting instead of leaving it up to fate and cravings. You might even consider having a Herbalife Shake for lunch, coupled with protein snacks for your tea breaks.

Contact us for more information on the benefits of meal replacement shakes.

How did you enjoy Chris & Jean’s training?

Friends, it is Wednesday already and personally I’m feeling like the week has run away from me! We  had such a great training with Chris & Jean Thompson over the weekend and I’ve got to admit that this couple is my absolute favourite when it comes to the Herbalife family.

I think everyone is feeling quite fired up and confident in the new  path that we are all taking our businesses on. Not so? The best thing about sitting in front of Chris & Jean is that your instincts have no choice but to trust them, and that is such a good feeling. I imagine this is why they are so loved!

I wish you all a productive week and I hope to see more and more of you getting involved in the HALE meetings that will be taking place every week. If you’d like to get involved please don’t hesitate to pop into the club and speak to Anthony.

Happy Herbalifing, everyone!

New Training Venue

This past weekend we tried out our new training venue where we will be doing some training as well as holding our Customer Days, and the general consensus seems to be that we made the right choice. Instead of hanging out at The Rink Street Wellness Club for both day-to-day business and training, we are now meeting for trainings at The Crusaders Club inside St. George’s Park Stadium.

I have to extend a hand of congratulations to the team that pulled it all off. You guys were fantastic and everything ran so smoothly! I think we’re all looking forward to spending a bit more time in this new space and getting to know each other better in this pro-social environment.

Customer Days for the 5 Day Challenges will be held here in the future. If you would like more information please feel free to send us a message.

The Smallest Resolution

While many of us spend the first few days of January lost in grand thoughts of improbable resolutions, I have to wonder if these resolutions do not set us up for disillusionment. Often what happens, especially with health goals and attempts at lifestyle changes, is that we tend to give up on resolutions almost immediately because we take on too many of them. Goals are such an important part of life, of course, and they are undoubtedly a pastime to be encouraged, but what if we’re biting off more than we can chew? It seems to me we could be.

I propose that we step back from the overwhelming resolutions that we try to tackle all at once and break them down into something a little more bite-sized. How about, instead of giving ourselves a long list of new rules to live by, we start with just one?

Drink more water.

Our part of the world is experiencing overwhelming heat, which means that dehydration is more likely than normal. We all know we should be drinking water and yet we still aren’t always doing it. So why don’t we all start with just this one resolution? We can practice the water for a while, and then add the next one.

Once you’ve mastered sticking to one resolution, it becomes easier to stick to the next one, right?

(that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

Taste Tip: Add Herbal Aloe to your water for a refreshing change. Contact us for more info on the health benefits of drinking aloe.



A Happy New Year

Greetings fellow Herbaheroes & Happy Healthy People!

It looks like we’re half way through the first week of a brand new year and many of us are getting a little introspective and thinking large thoughts about the year ahead of us. This can be a daunting task, but fret not, my friends, big plans lead to big things and one should never be afraid of big things!

If you’re a social media addict like myself I imagine you have come across the New Year scorn that is dancing about. I would like to say to you this: ignore it. Yes, little internet memes with Robert Downey Jr rolling his eyes at the idea of New Year’s Resolutions may be kind of funny and they may make you feel the slightest twinge of shame about your own resolutions, but so what? Ignore ignore, fellow human. There is something psychologically brilliant about the idea of new beginnings and one should always take advantage of psychologically brilliant things.

The year ahead of you is filled with many promises, all you have to do is grab them. Promise yourself that you will reach your level ten. Promise yourself your business will reach the next step up. Promise yourself that you will meet and interact with even more brilliant minds and hear even more brilliant stories and be inspired more and more every day.

Why? Because that’s the way we do things around here. We work hard. We play hard. And every success story makes our hearts swell just a tiny bit more.

Happy New Year to all of you!

I wish you only good things for the year ahead.

This message come to you with much love from Nadine, on behalf of everyone at The Rink Street Wellness Club.
