WholeHealth is our way of inviting you to think about your health ‘holistically’
It may seem like a bit of a fluffy word, but the idea of looking after your WHOLE self is not a fluffy concept at all. It’s a practical way to look at taking care of yourself in a busy and stressful world. That’s why we named ourselves WholeHealth.
As WholeHealth #RealFood, is important to us, and now it’s time for the second ingredient in our WholeHealth recipe for health and happiness, #Fresh Air…
As well as healthy eating habits, you all know that we are also very much pro-exercise for EVERYONE. However, we don’t just believe this because we want to help you burn calories and maintain or lose weight or fat. We all know that regular activity can make us healthier, leaner and decrease our chances of getting sick.
We believe that there are multiple OTHER benefits to getting your body moving, and especially exercise that takes you out doors and into nature. It is well-documented the effect that getting into nature can have on well-being, both physical and mental. We would go so far as to say that as humans we have a need for nature.
At WholeHealth, we meet this need by getting outdoors often. We love running and cycling in the Fresh Air, getting out and about using the power of our bodies and minds, pushing ourselves and achieving, and the feeling of strength that this gives us. Yes it makes us healthy, but for us, the path is the goal; the enjoyment of using your body for what it was intended, and for stretching its capabilities, challenging yourself, learning about yourself, and drawing parallels between your struggles in training and your struggles in life.
As well as making you physically strong, training and overcoming will make you mentally strong, and you can train your mind along with your muscles.
As winter creeps in, it’s harder to motivate ourselves to get outdoors, but fresh air all year round is important to help your body make that all-important vitamin D. It can be hard to get out of the door some days when we are cosy inside, but if a little Fresh Air each day is your goal, you can do that every day. Of course, a side effect will be that you are moving your body each time you go out, and profiting from the benefits that brings too.
We recommend a little fresh air every day. Just get out of the door. When you get outside, you may find you want to spend little longer there. It’s addictive!
PS. We think we may have found the freshest air around…the location for our Summer Getaway in the Pyrenees is a farmhouse set in quiet, beautiful cycling countryside, surrounded by plenty of space for children to run and play safely, and amongst beautiful run trails and paths. Not to mention the nearby leisure lakes perfect for open water swimming. We’re inviting you to join us for a week (or two) of fresh air and real food cooked for you every day by WholeHealth. But we need YOU to provide the final ingredient-Good Company!
