Once everyone had got themselves a drink and a pastry we opened up the morning with our speaker slot, Marla Murray Callisen from Best Life Basics. She gave an interactive insight to ‘Good Nutrition and Exercise’.
Three main key things to think about on this subject are:
- Your Nutrition
- Your Exercise
The discussion involved putting yourself first, to look after yourself is not a selfish thing to do, it will then enable you to be able to deal with your day to day tasks and support others around you to your better ability.
- Make time to a little exercise each day, whichever way this may be that suites you.
- Maybe make time to carry it out at the beginning of the day rather than the end when we are feeling tired.
- Eat healthy! There is nothing wrong with a treat here and there but make sure you eat plenty of vegetables, add them to each meal that you have.
- For those of us that like our treats, put them into cupboards and put the healthier ones on view so that they are not the first things that we see, this will encourage you to eat the healthier ones more often.
A discussion took place by the group who shared how they kick started themselves into some exercise regimes.
One being someone who has problems with their knees and felt that they needed to walk more, so to ensure that this happened they bought a dog.
Another has difficulties with sticking to exercising but enjoys it when they do it so they decided to join a netball team, this makes them feel more committed because if they do not attend then they are not just letting themselves down but also their team.
One other said that they enjoy to walk with their partner but don’t particularly want to be out in the public eye, so the way they deal with this is by going for their walk once it is dark.

Then as the usual format continued, we carried out a 60 second introduction and shared other networking events which then led to relaxed networking for everyone to get to know each other in more detail.
Our next morning working event will be on Wednesday 2nd December and the next evening event is on Tuesday 8th December. As said this morning, the Christmas season will be upon us and we will welcome Christmas jumpers, hats, etc to end the year with, so if you feel like being festive please come dressed accordingly.
