New Year, New Start! Get Fit & Healthy This January

Thursday, 10 January 2013  |  Naomi

Christmas has to be my favourite time of year. The lights, the trees, the food! It has it all. So when January comes around it can be difficult to get back to normality. You soon find that you cannot get away with eating a whole cheeseboard every day, or watch the Muppets Christmas Carol AND The Snowman back to back accompanied by a tin of Quality Street. After New Year’s Day reality quickly dawns on me and I realise I haven’t been to the gym since November, and even then I only went twice.  So, as we are well into January it is time to stop moping and make a fresh start this New Year. Whether it is getting fit, quitting smoking or even trying to stop snoring, January is the best time of year to start.

Quitting smoking is incredibly hard and for a smoker, it's hard to imagine life without cigarettes. If you are looking to give up smoking, trying a smoking alternative is certainly worth a try. The Nicocig is an electronic cigarette, it is an alternative to a normal cigarette and contains no tobacco. The Nicocig Electronic Cigarette uses cartridges which contain nicotine. As the user smokes the Nicocig, tobacco flavoured water vapour containing nicotine is inhaled by the smoker. The Nicocig smoker can even blow water vapour ‘smoke rings’!

The Nicocig is ideal if you are looking to lower your nicotine intake gradually. Refill cartridges can be purchased for the Nicocig with 4 different strengths of nicotine available. So if you want to reduce your intake gradually you can start off with the high level of nicotine and work your way down to the zero nicotine cartridge. The zero strength nicotine cartridge is just a tobacco flavoured cartridge, so you can enjoy the experience of smoking without the tobacco or the nicotine.

I think most of us intend on getting fitter once a new year begins, however the reality is quite different and getting back into the gym just seems too much of an effort! So why not start your fitness regime at home? The Triggerpoint The Grid Foam Roller is regarded as the most comprehensive and versatile foam roller on the market. Not only can The Grid Foam Roller be used for a full body workout, it is also an excellent body massager enabling you to massage a range of muscle groups. The Grid Foam Roller comes with a range of different grid markings known as Matrix and Distrodensity Zones which perform a soft tissue massage when you rollover The Grid. The Triggerpoint Grid Foam Roller can be used to perform a range of exercises and massages including exercises for the upper back and core, middle back and calves.

If you are your partner has been a snorer for many years, you may not realise the range of products that are available to help. The Rhynil Stop Snoring Spray is a very popular stop snoring aid which is ideal for sufferers of nasal stuffiness, mouth breathers and those with collapsed nostrils. Rhynil Stop Snoring Spray is made from the natural herb Euphrasia Officinalis and its astringent properties are used to treat snoring caused by ‘palatal flutter’. The Nozovent is a nasal dilator which fits inside the nostrils to help reduce snoring. The Nozovent Nasal Diltator expands the narrowest part of the nostrils making it easier to breathe through the nose. The result is that the soft palette cannot vibrate as easily and less energy is required to breathe. As less energy is being used the wearer will snore less and in many cases stop snoring altogether.
