A health kick for a good cause this month
Still sticking to those New Year’s
resolutions? If that’s a resounding no, don’t worry – you’re not alone! Around
80% are broken by February, but with spring around the corner and the end of
lockdown in sight, March is as good a time as any to try and introduce
healthier habits. Why not get inspired by some of this month’s good causes?
Dechox is the British Heart
Foundation’s annual challenge to give up everything and anything chocolate or
cocoa-related for the whole of March. That includes everything from a hearty
helping of chocolate cake right through to cappuccino sprinkles!
Giving up chocolate can help you
reduce your sugar and fat intake, which means fewer sugar crashes, especially
if you swap for healthier foods which can keep you fuller for longer. Why not
add some healthy snacks to your next order? Fresh fruit can’t be beaten, and
yogurts make a delicious alternative snack to chocolate too.
Think you could go the distance?

Walk All Over Cancer 2021
Fancy putting your best foot
forward instead this month? Take inspiration from Cancer Research UK’s Walk All
Over Cancer campaign. Thousands of supporters walk over 10,000 steps per day
throughout March to raise money for life-saving research.
Just some of the benefits
associated with walking include improved fitness, a boost to mental health and
lowered blood pressure – and it’s a COVID-safe activity too! Read more here.
