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.

Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods, such as blueberries, decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. They can also promote hair and skin health, increased energy and overall lower weight.

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!

Speak Up And Speak Out About Stress

Stress Awareness Day #INSAD
1st November 2017

What is Stress Awareness Day?

Now a globally recognised event, International Stress Awareness Day (INSAD) is something we have championed since we established Tonic in 2004 hence this being our 13th successful year supporting the International Stress Management Association (ISMA).

As an authority on stress, lead professional body, it helps us to provide information on stress, and strategies on how to address it. This year the theme is Speak Up and Speak Out About Stress!

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day?

To breakfast or not to breakfast – that is the question…

We all know how important it is to start the day with a good breakfast. Research suggests it sets us up for the day ahead, helps us to stay focused and boosts our metabolism. We’re told that eating breakfast makes us less likely to be overweight, and if we don’t we’ll be so hungry that we’ll eat more later. Many experts are so passionately attached to this message it’s as if the world might end if we skip breakfast!

The Ultimate Bedtime Routine to Help You Sleep!

Why a good bedtime routine should be top of our daily to-do list

There’s no question that most of us aren’t getting enough sleep. According to the Sleep Council nearly half of us are getting just six hours sleep or less a night. And an alarming four out of five people complain of disturbed or inadequate sleep! The sleeping sweet spot is closer to seven to nine hours per night all days of the week, and anything less can have a profoundly negative impact upon your health and puts us into the insomniac category.

MOVE MORE, SIT LESS – WHY?

Have you ever thought about reducing the time you spend sitting each day to help improve your health and wellbeing?

How long have you been sitting today? Maybe you sit to eat breakfast, at your work desk, in the classroom, in the car, on the train, and in front of the TV in the evenings. It all adds up.

We now know that sitting time is a health risk with both long and short term impacts. To reduce your risk of health problems, you need to be aware of how much you sit and try to move more throughout the day.
