MEDITATION AND WEIGHT LOSS The good news is that there is a connection between meditation and weight loss!

WITH THE PARTY SEASON UPON US, ITS TIME TO UNCORK THE TRUTH. We do a lot of drinking during December. In fact the average Brit can drink two or three times their usual alcohol intake over the Christmas and New Year period. According to stats, Brits spend more than 165bn just on the alcohol we drink in our 165 million December pub outings, never mind what we cart home from the shops.

If you fall into the latter, chances are you use music to push yourself to work harder as you train. As well as making you work harder over a longer period of time, music can be a good way to time yourself while doing interval training, by going hard for one song and pulling back during the next.
