Could A Home Allergy Testing Kit Help You?

*Ad

Living with allergies can be difficult, can be life-changing and can completely take over your daily life but are you fully aware of everything you are allergic to? How many of you assume you just have hayfever? That you might be sensitive to strawberries but you’re not too sure? That the pet hair makes you sneeze but you’ve never been checked? I bet some of you nodded along there because far too many of us do put off going to the doctor especially if you don’t deem an allergy as being too severe or you think you will be wasting a GP’s time. But if you did know the answers you could make such a difference to your life and this is where a home allergy testing kit could help you…

What Are The Benefits of Yoga?

*Collaborative Post

Yoga emanated from India over 5000 years ago. It focuses on flexibility, strength and breathing. Yoga practitioners do so by forming postures (a series of movements sometimes called asanas) and concentrating on their breathing. It’s an ancient practice that has since filtered out across the world. It has spawned revered leaders, committed acolytes and countless variations over the years.

How And Why Home Yoga Has Been Such A Benefit To Me

Just before we went into lockdown, I’d been considering taking up a yoga class. Having had back problems for years now and feeling exasperated by the differing opinions of chiropractors, I felt I needed to do something myself. But just as I was doing some searches of local classes, everything shut down due to covid and I was left really disheartened. But then I discovered Yoga with Adriene online and I began to attempt and actually really enjoy learning yoga at home. If you haven’t heard of Adriene, she is a truly fantastic yoga teacher. Not only is her voice calming and reassuring but she has a video for almost every possible ache, pain, bodily issue you have plus she has them at differing levels. It feels as though she really guides you through your yoga journey by offering alternative moves, telling you to ease off if needs be, explaining what your body should be feeling and what to do if it just doesn’t feel quite right to you. I have found her online sessions to be something I look forward to doing and now I try to regularly get yoga into my week. Home yoga has brought quite a few benefits to me which I thought I would quickly share with you today.

Living With Migraines

I’ve lived with migraines since I was 18 years old, so coming up for 19 years. Wow, 19 years?! I hadn’t even realised it had been so long. It’s crazy how this one condition has affected me for all this time and there isn’t really anything I can do about it. Which is why I thought I’d write about it. I have something that can come on out of the blue, something that is far more than a headache, a condition that can leave me unable to see or function and one that I cannot control;

Review | Getting A Comprehensive Hearing Test With Leightons

AD- Review in collaboration with Leightons

Since having my children there have been a few things that have started to, well, er, go wrong with my body. The greys, the bags under my eyes, the bad back and most recently my eyesight– thanks relaxin hormones! So, when Leightons got in contact to ask if I’d like to go for a hearing test my first thoughts were ‘oh, that sounds great’ and my second thoughts immediately went ‘oh, no, please don’t tell me I’m going deaf too?!’ Well, there was only one way to find out and I was really interested to know so I agreed to pop along to my local branch here in Basingstoke to undergo a comprehensive hearing test.
