Why do we exercise?February 3, 2022
When we peel back all the layers and get to the core ‘why’ it’s longevity.
Let’s talk longevity. I can confidently say 99% of people don’t want to die and want to age gracefully. Gracefully meaning, be able to walk, talk, eat, etc… The common things we all take for granted. But as we age we can lose them, unless we do something about it. I would much prefer to prevent than to rehabilitate, but this is a whole different topic we can dive into at a later date.
What I wanted to share today were 5 longevity tips that will help you age gracefully.
1. Lift heavy things 2-3 times per week
2. Sprint once a week
3. Play often
4. Challenge your mind
5. Mobility, 10 minutes per day
These are my longevity mantras.
Committing and Consistency is the key.
The first step?
If you have any questions about what you just read or would like to start your journey of aging gracefully. Reach out and I would be happy to help.

New support payments for SMEs hit hard by OmicronFebruary 1, 2022
|The NSW Government will cover up to 20 per cent of a small or medium business’s weekly payroll as part of a new package of measures to help those who have suffered a large cut to turnover during the Omicron wave.
The Small Business Support Program helps those businesses with annual turnover of between $75,000 and $50 million with a decline in turnover of at least 40 per cent.
The minimum payment will be $500 per week and the maximum $5,000 per week.
Applications are expected to open in mid February.
In addition, the existing Small Business Fees, Charges Rebate will be increased by 50% from the current $2,000 limit to $3,000 and employing businesses will be able to use the rebate to obtain Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs). This measure is designed to support worker availability by helping reduce costs to small businesses and enabling healthy staff who have been exposed to COVID-19, but test negative, to return to work.
RAT rebates are expected to be available from late March.
