Having Fun At Christmas Is Good For You

All too often the festive period receives bad press when it comes to being healthy. A time when adults drink too much, everyone eats too much and we all sleep a lot. The negatives of the festive period may be obvious, even if we choose to ignore them, however an article in the Daily Mirror has highlighted just how Christmas can benefit our health. And the best part is we get to do all the things we would want to do at this time of year.

Everybody loves a good old sing song, whether it is a raucous Karaoke party or candlelit carol service. Swedish researchers have discovered that singing not only lifts the spirits but it also helps control our breathing and regulate our heartbeat and pulse. Singing a solo shall do you the world of good but if you can find others to croon along with, the research shows this will be even more beneficial.

Heart Research UK carried out a study as part of their annual Sing For Your Heart Campaign, and found that singing is a great ‘aerobic exercise, giving your heart and lungs a fantastic workout.’ Most excitingly the health benefits of singing are similar to yogic breathing, which has a beneficial effect on blood pressure.

So you can make singing your exercise but surely all that food is going to pile on the pounds. Well perhaps not as your Christmas dinner makes it really easy to get your five a day.

Christmas is a time to be enjoyed and YogaBugs are big believers in fun. That is why we created this special free online gift for you, a Christmas Advent Calendar.

Have a great Christmas from all at YogaBugs.

What do you buy the child that has everything? Finding the right gift at Christmas can be difficult, finding an original gift even more so. Yet creative parents across the UK seem to have found the perfect solution. YogaBugs.

“It has been quite surprising. We have had a nice upturn in visits to the website and bookings for the New Year, with parents or close family booking children into classes as Christmas presents. They are looking for something that lasts way beyond Christmas, something more than just a toy.” said a spokesperson from Bugs HQ.

YogaBugs is a unique children’s activity devised by the consultant to hit CBeebies show Waybaloo, Fenella Lindsell. The sessions take children on wild adventures where they can be lions, jungle explorers or pirates. This is all done through yoga postures giving the children a physical workout by stealth. The sessions also have hidden benefits as the classes have been devised to also improve literacy, numeracy and self-esteem. The sessions are really inclusive and accessible to all.

Linda a mum of a YogaBugs child, reckons YogaBugs is the ideal Christmas gift. “I love the way in which Yogabugs has enabled Annabel to explore worlds and visit places in her imagination; it is the perfect antidote to a busy school day.”

All YogaBugs instructors are qualified, highly trained, well motivated and CRB checked. This is why parents across the UK see YogaBugs as the perfect antidote to games consoles, tablets and DVDs.
