Fruit, Fruit, Fruit – But Which Are The Best?

Watching your sugar intake is a good idea, but taming your sweet tooth can be an incredibly difficult feat. Perhaps you’ve already cut out processed sugars, but didn’t realise how much sugar (even though its mainly natural) is contained in fruit (fructose). Or maybe you live with diabetes and want to know which fruits will have the least impact on your blood sugar.

So, although there is heaps of evidence to say that an excessive intake of added sugar is harmful – that’s true – added sugars are bad but the same doesn’t apply to all fruits. All fruits were not created equal when it comes to sugar (fructose). Many fruits are loaded with fibre and water; plus they contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants too. The key is picking the right ones…

Men’s Health Week – It’s Time To Talk

The Importance of Men’s Health Week

This week, 11th – 17th June 2018, is Men’s Health Week 2018. Men’s Health Week is an annual event in the UK (although it is also celebrated Worldwide), which usually takes place the week leading up to Father’s Day.

Every year, Men’s Health Week is celebrated to heighten awareness of health issues that affect men, in the hope they will discuss their problems and gain the courage to do something about them! We want to champion this cause and help:

The True Impact Of Mental Health

Mental Health Awareness Week

This week, 14th – 20th May, marks Mental Health Awareness Week. Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, this year the organisation have focused on the effects of stress.

“By tackling stress, we can go a long way to tackle mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, and in some instances, self-harm and suicide. We will look at how we can tackle stress and help improve our mental health.”

Stress Management Techniques

Do I really need stress management techniques?

Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year the charity is strongly focusing on stress. Research shows that two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our life, and stress is the key factor in this. Here, we look back at one of our old articles from 2016 and see how these stress management techniques are still as relevant as ever…

Top 6 Health Benefits Of Eating Blueberries

Why We Should Add Blueberries To Our Diets

Whether they are purchased fresh, frozen or dried – blueberries are packed with nutritional power.

Why Exactly Is A Workplace Health Check SO Important?

A Workplace Health Check Program – Do We REALLY Need That?

Staff health should always be a priority. We see it as vital.

A healthy workforce is one that’s engaged and therefore more productive. Even if a member of staff comes to work, if they don’t feel well, they won’t be as productive as they could be. This costs companies money and makes for unhappy employees. The health of the workforce is something that should be high on the agenda of every organisation to recruit, engage and retain talent! In addition we think it quite simply demonstrates to employees that they are a valued part of a company, their employer cares. Our surveys show clearly this matters to employees. A Tonic Workplace Health Check can help to identify health problems early before they become serious enough to take a person off work – and that’s a good thing for everyone!
