Stay Fit Whilst Watching TV

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Fitness, Product Reviews

When you’re a parent to a couple of young children, expect to be participating in a lot of activities that they like and not necessarily things that you enjoy, including watching a bunch of kid friendly shows and movies that the kids love to play over and over again. Spending this much time in front of the television gets in the way of completing daily tasks and routines like exercise, but when your daughter insists that you watch her favourite cartoon with her, you can’t exactly say no. The only way to avoid your transformation into a couch potato is by incorporating a workout into TV time.

George becomes agitated, energetic, hyperactive, craves attention, demands inspiration and becomes all consuming. There are a few things that seem to appease my kids when boredom begins to set in, these are their top 5.

One look at the Samuel Windsor range and you’ll realise that it’s just stylish clothes, tailored well, at great prices. There’s no pomposity, or self grandeur, and I for one am planning to use it as my main source of clothing from now on. Of course I’ll keep my “comfy” clothes, but they’ll be saved for those days, those rainy days when you can’t be bothered to even pick the Coco-Pop from your chin kind of days. Only then will the 8 year old tracksuit bottoms and stained t-shirt make an appearance, and they’ll become the exception and not the norm.

How To Holiday With Kids

Me and my family have had to travel quite a bit in the last few years, either for my work or our pleasure; one thing that is very apparent is that it is one of the most stressful times in our lives. We’ve often said that we wish someone would invent a transporter so we could just materialise from point A to point B without the need for planes, trains, or automobiles. Research is starting to show that travel stress actually starts well before you put that key into the ignition, and the bickering ruins the whole experience before you’ve even begun.
