The best kind of supplements for a healthy routine

When you’re on a healthy routine, sometimes you use supplements to either accelerate your weight loss or your muscle gain. But what you should you really be putting in your body? Consider your diet down to the last detail when it comes to sticking to a routine, as you’ll need the right energy levels and natural healing to keep at what you do. Here are a few recommendations on what to take for a few different routines you can choose to better your physical shape.

Whey Proteins

Having some whey protein in your daily diet whilst getting fit is great due to its rapid absorption ability, and aids digestion. Try some supplements on gold standard for more assurance in your product quality, and a better chance of adding more lean muscle to your body.

Mix up a protein shake and drink it within an hour of the end of your exercise routine for the day. Not only will it soothe your muscles, it will promote healthier regeneration of muscle tissues and development of those biceps you’ve always wanted.

Fish Oil

You can get a variety of benefits from taking fish oil. We’ve all heard about it’s amazing omega 3 properties, but what exactly does that do for us which is so good?

Well, it can help cholesterol levels and all round blood vessel health. Fish oil is also good for the mind as well, as it helps increase the production of serotonin, which is what makes us feel happy and good about ourselves. This means fish oil works wonders on a person who feels stressed and wants to be able to relax better in their daily life.

You’ll only need to take about 3 grams of fish oil per day to garner its full range of benefits for your health.

Vitamin D

Depending on where you live, just going outside for a few minutes is all you need to do here. However, if you live in cloudier and rainier areas, like some northern countries in Europe and the US, try taking some Vitamin D supplements. Ingesting some Vitamin D on a daily basis is important for you in the colder months you often experience in these areas, as it can give you a boost towards your winter health.

Vitamin D works wonders on your mental and cognitive health as well, as having a daily source of the hormone can lessen your risk of Dementia and up the ante for your awareness and vigilance. You’ll notice better performance not only with your bodily health, but in your work as well.

Low levels of vitamin D can be found in dairy foods, which also have a strong source of protein and fibre, which will help tissue development and your digestion. It’s just healthy all round!

Diets work for everyone, whether they’re carb heavy, supported via supplements, or just needed to cut out a certain substance. For a more healthy routine by choice, consider some of these options. The future will look brighter!

Sightseeing with London Duck Tours

Recently the Hubby and I had a child free overnight stay in London, which doesn’t happen very often. I love our amazing capital city. It’s full of history and heritage. During the last year I have been to London 5 or 6 times, which has been amazing, attending various different events but this time the Hubby joined me.

London Duck Tours

As we are not the most decisive people in the world, other than going for a lovely meal at the OXO Tower, we couldn’t decide what to do while we visited.  We have never really just visited to be tourists. On this trip we fancied doing a London Bus tour, but then London Duck Tours got in contact asking if we would like to join them for a sightseeing tour. We had both heard great things about the Duck Tours as my Brother-In-Law had been on them a couple of times before, so we went for it.

London Duck Tour

The Ducks were originally used in the Second World War, to unload troops and cargo straight onto beaches, after so many docks had been destroyed. The Ducks have been rebuilt and modified to meet todays regulations.

The Tour

Arriving in London to the start of the Duck Tour on York Road, we released as it was the Queens Birthday. So the Classic Tour of Westminster was not possible. I was a bit disappointed as I loved the thought of going past Buckingham Palace, St James Palace and Westminster Abbey. Instead we went on ‘The City Tour’ which is used when they are unable to go via the Classic Route.

London Duck Tour

We went past the Royal Courts of Justice, Fleet Street, the magnificent St Pauls Cathedral, being informed of different snippets of history along the way by Ben the rather cute English man with an New Zealand accent.

London Duck Tour

On to the Bank of England, learning about its vaults and how a tube line has to go around the underground vaults. The Monument to the Fire of London, the Tower of London and seeing HMS Belfast sitting on the water.

London Duck Tour

Across to The Shard, Southwark Cathedral and the Imperial War Museum. My Hubby was very impressed by all of the information we had been given. He’s a bit of a history geek so knows a fair amount anyway, but even he learnt a few bits.

London Duck Tour

We headed onto the water next to MI6 which was a bumpy ride down the river bank into the water, getting onto the water it was surprisingly cold. We sailed the up the Thames to the Houses of Parliament. Seeing the Elizabeth Tower, mistakenly called – Big Ben, from the water was lovely.

We headed up a the Thames before turning around and heading back to the starting point at York Road.

London Duck Tour

We had a fabulous trip with London Duck Tours, I would highly recommended anyone booking a trip. They are such a novel way of seeing the sights of London in an humorous yet informative manner. Next time we are in London, I shall make sure that there isn’t a big event going on so I am able to do the Classic tour.

*We were given tickets for the Duck Tour in exchange for review, as always thoughts and opinions are my own*


Monthly Magazine Subscription with Readly

I love reading magazines, I like keeping up to date with latest wedding and fashion trends or home inspiration. Of course I can find most of this on the internet however there is something satisfying about having a magazine to read. I do however find they can be pricey, sometimes £4.99 for a monthly magazine can be a bit off putting, when it is only going to end up in the bin when you have finished with it.

Recently I was offered a magazine subscription with Readly, who got in touch and offered to send me a 3 month subscription to their downloadable magazines. I hadn’t heard of Readly so I had a look and found they offer you thousands of different magazines to download at just £7.99 a month. Which is very little if you are buying the weekly Closer magazine along with OK.

Magazine Subscription With Readly

What made me say yes to the trial was the array of Wedding magazines available, pages and pages full of Weddings. It means you are able to download numerous Wedding magazines each month to help with your inspiration and planning.

Magazine Subscription With ReadlyI remember planning my own wedding I was buying 2 or 3 wedding magazines a month. Not wanting to miss out on the latest trends. So for very little a month you are able to have as many as you would like without the extra costs.

Monthly Magazine Subscription with Readly

I love that with the Readly App, I could easily download up to 30 magazines at a time. Then read them at my leisure without the need for wifi connection, once they are on your device then they are accessible everywhere.

Recently I have been on a family holiday to Crete, which involved a week of very little wifi and an awful 3G connection. I had downloaded a collection of magazines before leaving home ready to read whenever I had some time. So during the holiday I was able sit by the pool and enjoy catching up on the latest wedding trends and of course not forgetting the latest celebrity gossip. One of my guilty pleasures. All without filling up my hand luggage or worrying about how much of my data allowance I was using up. Plus did you know that buying a UK magazine in a foreign country is super expensive.

Readly also allows you to share your account across 5 different devices, with 5 separate profiles so the whole family can download magazines without having to share. Which is perfect for my comic loving 7 year old and my country shooting loving Hubby. Plus you are not tied in a long contracts, you can cancel at anytime.

I love that there are so many different magazines to choose from, it is so easy to use. Just sign up, download the App, upload your magazines then start reading. Whatever types of magazines interest you, you will find it with Readly.

What are you waiting for sign up here for your one months free trial.

*Thank you Readly for gifting me a 3 month subscription, as always thoughts and opinions are my own.*
