A good reminder today to take care of your mental health. Save this for the next time you're feeling low and you're not sure what to do to feel better.
SPEND TIME IN NATURE
° Absorbing the raw beauty of natural surroundings has been shown to help calm the nervous system, lower blood pressure and boost positive feelings.
GET QUALITY SLEEP
°Develop a relaxing bedtime routine going to sleep and waking up around the same time each day. Avoid mobile screens, caffeine and alcohol before bed.
° Whether it's sport, gardening, dancing, cycling, walking the dog or going to the gym, exercise releases hormones that reduce feelings of stress and anger. It also helps us feel better about our bodies and improves our sleep. The best exercise you can do is the one you enjoy.
LEARN TO UNDERSTAND AND MANAGE YOUR FEELINGS
°Feeling upset makes it difficult to think clearly, work, relax, study or deal with other people. Talk kindly to yourself and reassure yourself the same way you would a small child. Be loving. Writing down your feelings may help. Research shows saying something positive to yourself a few times a day reduces negative thoughts and feelings. For example, "I am capable." "I am strong." "I am working towards my goals."
Hello and Welcome!
Hi! I'm Amanda and I'm so glad you found us. We would love to help you reach (and maintain!) your health and fitness goals.
I started She's a Knockout in 2009 after discovering for myself the life-changing benefits of healthy eating and regular exercise and becoming a qualified personal trainer and boxing instructor - I wanted to empower other women by sharing this knowledge!
I've lost over 20kg myself and have kept it off many years and 2 kids later.
Along the way there's been challenges - learning about nutrition and exercise, struggling for years to fall and stay pregnant, then sustaining a healthy and active lifestyle while raising young kids.
I've personally selected a team of positive, empathetic, encouraging and professional female trainers to help you lose weight, get fit and feel strong, sexy and confident! We specialise in training women in all stages of their lives, including prenatal and postnatal.
We come to you in many locations across Perth - whether it's your home, local park, apartment gym or office.
We bring all the equipment and will come at a time and place that suits you.
