Exercise saved my mental health

I have suffered with mental health issues for as long as I can remember. Even in primary school, I just found life too overwhelming. What I didn’t consider though was that my diet and lifestyle didn’t help – I bunked every P.E class and I lived on fried chicken, ramen noodles, frozen food and concentrated juices in abundance.

How’s Your Heart?

me n dad

Every 3 minutes in the UK, someone dies from heart disease. Every 6 minutes, someone in the UK has a heart attack. 1 in 3 people who have a heart attack die before they reach a hospital. More than a quarter of all deaths in the UK are down to coronary heart disease.

Yes, I know I’m starting this off in a depressing fashion, and I know there are countless things that can kill you, but I’d love for you to help me make a positive difference to help change these damning statistics. None of us are exempt from them.
