National Fitness Day: Move More with Tonic

Wednesday 23rd September is National Fitness Day; a day dedicated to highlighting the role of physical activity and helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and more active lifestyles.

National Fitness Day aims to break down the barriers that prevent people building activity into their daily lives and show that “fitness” is for everyone in some way shape or form. This is something the Tonic Team have been promoting for years and is why we are making it our prerogative to share this powerful message….

Do You KNOW Your NUMBERS?

Monday 7th to Sunday 13th September is ‘Know Your Numbers Week;’ sevens days dedicated to raising awareness around blood pressure (BP) numbers, and encouraging us to take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure. Know Your Numbers week is the UK’s biggest and most far reaching blood pressure event and awareness week, something we have always supported but have also championed every month of the year as part of our employee well@work health checks.

Men’s Health Week with Tonic

This week is Men’s Health Week. It runs for seven days every June and aims to raise awareness of the health issues that affect men disproportionately. It focuses on getting men to become more aware of health problems they may have or could develop, and gain the courage to take action!

Unsurprisingly, this year’s theme relates to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and is to ‘TAKE ACTION ON COVID-19.’ Using the brilliant information readily available on men’s health, and what our team of experts at Tonic knows, we have put together our guide on supporting Men’s health this June and, for good.

Diabetes Week: The Connection Between Diabetes, Your Heart & Your Health

This week 8th – 14th of June is Diabetes Week. When we think about Diabetes and Heart Disease (or cardiovascular disease), it seems that the majority of us think of two separate conditions. However, did you know that if you have diabetes you are more likely to develop heart disease and you have a greater chance of a heart attack or a stroke? This is because people with diabetes are more likely to have certain risk factors such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

So, if you have diabetes (or know some one who has) understanding the connection between these diseases is a great first step towards prevention.

The Health Benefits of Walking More …

When it comes to walking more or taking part in physical activity, it’s like marmite; you either love it or you hate it. For some, exercise is an essential part of the day. It is great for boosting energy levels and relieving stress. Whereas for others, its a time to fear and constantly put off – even the thought of walking for longer than a few minutes is filled with dread!

May is National Walking Month (thirty-one days dedicated to getting us to move more and sit less), and it is perhaps more important right now than ever. So whether you are a reluctant exerciser or some one who is desperate to get back to the gym – walking more is something you should be doing right now.

Sun Awareness Week: Getting the Balance Right During LockDown

This week, Monday 4th May to Sunday 10th May is Sun Awareness Week; seven days dedicated to raising awareness around Skin Cancer. The weather has been beautiful during the last few weeks. In fact we have had the hottest April in years. However, as we enter the seventh week of lockdown in the UK, it is important to make sure you are getting enough sunlight (ensuring you are spending enough time outdoors) whilst also being safe.

Why Walking More is a Basic Requirement for Good Health

Let’s all think about how often we spend walking everyday? We walk up stairs, we walk to our cars, we walk through doors and we walk to get or pick something up. Therefore for many of us, walking is a simple activity we do frequently everyday, without even thinking about it. Now think how you feel about walking as a form of exercise…

Tonic’s Top Tips to Protecting Your Wellbeing Over the Christmas Period

For many of us, it is the most wonderful time of the year. We break up from work, get to spend plenty of time with our loved ones, consume copious amounts of good food and alcohol and give and receive heart-felt gifts. However, for some of us, it can all just get a little too much…
