Simple steps to prolong longevity after 40

Jan 22 2019
I am a bit obsessed with longevity because I lost my parents at a young age despite being healthy and sporty. I live every day as if it was my last. My motto is Carpe Diem (Latin expression for ‘Seize the moment’). I live a healthy life including a balanced diet and the right amount of sport (not too much, not too little) always in my quest to prolong longevity. I have never been on a diet because I take everything in moderation. But I take the longevity thing quite seriously and treat my body like a temple.

First aid training to become a mandatory part of the curriculum in UK schools

Jan 21 2019

Every year, 60,000 people in the UK experience a cardiac arrest and 50% of these incidents happen in the community. 270 children die at school as a result of sudden cardiac arrest. To give someone the best chance of survival, bystander CPR should be given immediately, however often this does happen as people simply don’t know how to help. By the time an ambulance arrives, valuable time has been lost and, in many cases, any chance of saving the casualty has gone. In England, the ambulance services attempt to resuscitate approximately 28,000 people each year, of which less than 10% survive. The more people in the community trained to help and able to give prompt CPR and use a defibrillator, the better the chance of survival and prognosis for all of us.

I am a great believer in self-care. I am a happy person essentially because I regularly take time out for my self-care. Parenting is a 24-hour job that requires hard work, patience and sacrifice. As a result, it can be easy to stop caring for yourself, as your sole aim will be to raise happy, healthy children. However, believe it or not, self-care is beneficial to your children. If you want to become the best parent you can be, find out why looking after yourself helps you to look after your kids.
