3 Ways to Future Proof Your Body

I'm at the point in life where I'm starting to notice my body isn't the same now as it was when I was 15. Shocking. I've found that Derek and I are so focused on making sure that our children's health needs are being met, that we often forget our own. There are definitely some areas in my life that I know I need to make changes in now, so that I can be healthy and strong when I'm older too.

Resistance Training
As you get older, your body loses around 1% of muscle mass per year. You will find that your metabolism will start to slow down, and areas of your body that used to be tight and firm will begin to lose their athletic appearance. if you want to get around this then one thing that you can do is resistance training. You need to use weights that are manageable and you also need to focus on compound movements as well. Low-intensity is your friend here and this will really help to build your level of physical fitness. You should never train to fail either, for example, lifting until you cannot lift anymore. This won’t get you anywhere and it certainly won’t help you to get into the mindset of looking after yourself. The idea here is to get all of the benefits of strength training without suffering from burnout as this will have a huge impact on your body and it will also bring about a lot of positive change as well.

Stay Hydrated
A hydrated body will always operate at its highest level of efficiency. When you are hydrated, you
can flush toxins from your body and you can also lubricate your joints as well. Sure, you may not have any joint problems right now and this is great but you might in the future. Staying hydrated right now will certainly help you to combat the signs of aging and it will also improve your energy and even your digestion. If you're able to stay on top of hydration now, it will be all the easier to keep at it when you're older. Of course, staying hydrated can also help you to combat wrinkles and even fine lines as well so you can look younger for longer.

Regular Appointments
So many people skip out on their dentist appointment because they feel as though they can’t afford it or they even feel as though they don’t need to go. This is not the case at all and if you make decisions like this now then they will also affect you a lot in your later life. It is a good idea for you to look into dental insurance no waiting period providers as they can help you to save a ton of money and it also means that you won’t be stuck trying to find someone later on. Regular doctor visits and health checks are also important because they can help you to identify any health issues that you might have early-on and this is one of the best ways for you to look after yourself.

Reasons Why You Should Add Andorra To Your Ski Trip Bucket List

If you are looking for a place to take your friends, family or children this winter for a ski holiday, one of the places you might want to consider is Andorra. Andorra is a stunning area in the south of France which is the home of many amazing ski slopes and mountains which will not only please the ski lover, but also anyone who enjoys beautiful countryside scenery. Here are some of the top reasons why you should take a trip to Andorra for you next holiday.

1. They are cheap

The beauty of choosing Andorra ski holidays over a holiday in the alps is the fact that due to its lesser popularity it is a lot cheaper. You will be able to treat everyone you love to a wonderful skiing holiday for a fraction of the price and you can also enjoy less people on the slopes too!

2. Vallnord and Grandvalira offer lots
When you visit Andorra and you are deciding which of the parks to visit for yourself and your family, the choice will likely come down to a battle between Vallnord and Grandvalira. Whichever one of these that you choose, you will be able to have access to more than just the advanced slopes for seasoned skiers. You will also be able to see lots of green and blue slopes for beginners which will be a safe place for the children to practise and for the less experienced members of your party to learn.

3. Duty free shopping
One of the things people enjoy about going to the  airport and going on holiday is the fact that you get duty free shopping and the prices can be a fraction of what you normally pay. But did you know that Andorra offers exactly the same thing? The beauty of Andorra means that you can grab a bargain in your time between the slopes and it will make your your holiday even better!

4. Hot lunches for everyone

Skiing is a fun hobby and it can be a really wonderful activity to participate in with your family and with your friends. However, one of the biggest things you might suffer from on the slopes is the freezing cold temperature. As much as being out on the slopes is amazing and a unique experience, getting back to your chalet at the end of the night in front of the fire is always welcome. The beauty is that Andorra offers hot lunches for everyone as they are on the slopes so you can keep yourself warm throughout the day with some hearty food.

5. Sunny days
Andorra might be a cold place to be but that doesn’t mean that it is miserable and cloudy all the time. In fact, because a lot of the slopes break the clouds we are often found in the sunlight for skiing. Sun and skiing is a stunning combination as it makes the snow glisten and sparkle around you. You might even get a bit of a tan if you stay in it for a while!
