Exercise is so important, and, when you find something you enjoy, it can be so much fun. Whether that is a cycle class, dance lessons, weightlifting or just going on country walks in the fresh air. However often heading to the gym or going for a run on your own can become monotonous and boring, so it is great to find other ways to exercise with others. Finding other people to exercise with could keep you motivated and more entertained as you work out. Here are just several ways in which you can exercise with others.
Find a gym buddy
If you’ve got a gym membership that you want to take advantage of, consider finding yourself a gym
buddy to train with. This could be a friend, a relative or someone you’ve met at the gym. You’ll need to
agree on a regular time at which you can both train. It could help if you’re both of a similar fitness ability.
Join an exercise club
If you don’t know anyone who you can exercise with, you could consider joining a club and meeting
people there. There are all kinds of exercise clubs to consider including spin classes, circuit classes,
yoga clubs, running clubs, martial arts clubs and outdoor boot camps. Find a club near you that suits
your interests and consider going along for a taster session.
Hire a personal trainer
If you need someone to spur you on rather than someone to train with, you could consider hiring a
personal trainer. This could also be useful if you have a specific fitness goal in mind – a personal trainer
will be able to help you find unique exercises catered to your needs. You can find personal trainers
working at most gyms. You may also be able to find local personal trainers advertising on social media
– if you don’t want to exercise at the gym, some of these trainers may be able to find alternative
locations for you to exercise such as at home or at the park.
Take on a team fitness challenge
There are many challenges that you can take on as a team including races, obstacle courses, treks and
mountain climbs. You’ll be able to train towards a goal together and share the success of reaching this
goal whether it’s climbing a mountain together or completing an obstacle course together. You can
design your own OCR - obstacle course racing team kit online. Having a kit could help to spur you all on.
Use apps to compete with others

There are many fitness apps that can allow you to compete against others - including friends
and strangers. These include step counter apps, running apps, and HIIT apps. While you may
not be exercising with someone in person, it could still give you a sense that you're exercising
with people.

Student success isn't just that piece of paper with your degree on, or a good job once you graduate (although these
are pretty cool too). It's also being happy, healthy, and productive during your university experience. In fact, for
many being a student is where we get our first experience of adulthood and all the responsibilities that come along
with it. With that in mind, if you want to be as successful as possible, there are a few skills that you will need to
work on. Find out what they are below. 



Organisation 

Success, at university, and beyond is often reliant on good organisation. That is your ability to sort things in a
relevant manner, structure tasks in terms of priority, and systematically work through them. 

In fact, it's not just your academic performance that will depend on your organisational skills, but your greater well
being as well. After all, if you are living away from home, you won't have anyone there to remind you to stay
organised when paying your bills, or doing your laundry. 

That's not to say that poor organisation won't affect your studies either, as it definitely will. In fact, if you don't plan
enough time to study for your projects and presentations, as well as your exams, you are likely to experience two
things. The first is a decline in performance, while the second is a rise in stress. Something that can not only be
unpleasant but also further affect how well you can do. 

Obviously, then, organisation is essential. Although not all of us are gifted with a natural aptitude for it. Fortunately,
there are some actions we can take that can boost our ability in this area. 

The first is to embrace using a planner, whether it's a Bujo or another kind. The reason being if you have
somewhere where all your important info and dates go, it's much harder to stay disorganised.

The next is to realise that organisation is only a tool and not an end in itself. That is, if you are spending more time
organising your life than living it, you have gone wrong somewhere. With that in mind, when it comes to
organisation KISS method is the way to go. (Keep It Simple Stupid!)  

Communication 

Communication is another essential skill that you will need if you are to succeed at university. In fact, you will need
it in your academic life when interacting with peers and professors, as well as when presenting. 

You will also need it in your personal life as well. In situations such as renting a house, making new friends, and
applying for jobs and internships too. 

The great news about the skill of communication is that it's like a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it gets.
With that in mind, be sure to embrace opportunities to hone your communication skills. Whether they are speaking
publicly, or acting as a student representative on a particular issue. 

You may even wish to go one step further and join your university debate team. Although, whether you do or not,
you will have plenty of opportunities to present in your seminars that will provide the perfect training ground for
nurturing this skill. 

Just remember that it's totally OK to be nervous, and there are a few hacks you can use to come across more
confidently and effectively. One of these is to use your body language to project confidence, standing straight with
your hands behind your back.  

While another is to not read your presentation or speech but instead practice it so you can work from bullet points
instead. Then you will be able to look up and out into the audience. Something that always provides a more effective
feel when communicating your message. 

Critical Thinking 

One of the most essential skills that you will need to succeed in university (& increasing in the real work with all this
fake news nonsense) is critical thinking. That is the ability to look at something and question how valid and reliable
it is. Based on several factors such as its sources and the countering evidence.

In fact, you will quickly find that most academic subjects are founded on critical thinking. Something that means if
you can grasp this skill, you can improve your projects and presentations no end. 

With that in mind, when researching information, be sure to look past what it is telling you to the deeper issues
involved. A skill that you can hone by practicing the hat technique you will see in the video below. 

Budgeting 

Finally, if you want to succeed during your student years, you will absolutely need to be able to budget. Now, this
means sticking to a budget as well as just drawing one up. Something that can actually be pretty challenging,
especially if you have never lived away from home before. 

One tactic that you can use here is to set aside a time each week to go through your spending. Use this to work out
what you have spent, and what still needs to be paid before the end of the month. While at the same time checking
to make sure you have enough to cover this. 

Another way that you can boost your budgeting skills is to use an app to set your limits and track your spending. In
fact, some apps will do this automatically for you and show you the results in a visual dashboard. Something that
will make it much easier to stay on top of your finances in real-time. 

Of course, the real skill here being able to say no to things if you don't have the money to cover them. An issue that
can be pretty challenging, especially if there are social elements involved. After all, you don't want to stay home
alone when all your squad is at the club. Happily, if you are forward-thinking, you can set aside some money for
nights out, treats, and even day to day things like a cup of coffee without blowing your budget. This being a skill that
will stand you in excellent stead both for your time at uni and beyond.

The environmental conversation has taken on new tones and topics since it was first unveiled or gained real prominence in the early 2000s. Back then, switching off your lights as you leave the room, never leaving your television on standby mode or recycling seemed to be the big new solutions to climate change, a worrying process that has contributed to the recent wildfires in Australia and contributed to 2019 being the second hottest year on record.


Nowadays this conversation, while also supported by that previous advice, has taken on a new priority as solutions are more important than ever to find. In a world where everyone seems to have an opinion on Greta Thunberg or where it seems as though this conversation can be stunted as soon as it starts, like anything, each person trying to make healthier decisions can allow for positive trends to take place.

In the following advice you'll hear some encouraging insights that may help us all do our bit to prevent climate change, and maybe even slow down the degradation of our wonderful natural environment. So here are three pieces of advice to help the environment...

Driving Hybrid Or Electric Vehicles

In the UK, 'zero-emission' cars will be the standard by 2040, in an intensive effort to reduce unnecessary pollution. But there's no reason to wait until that point until you can start making healthier choices when purchasing a new vehicle. Electric and hybrid vehicles are coming into their own, providing exceptional design and incredible cost-effectiveness. The New Vauxhall Grandland X HYBRID4 is perhaps one of the most pressing examples of how new engineering can provide a worthwhile driving experience without causing an intensive impact on the environment. Remaining aware of your options is always a good idea, so if you are looking for a new car in the near future it is definitely worth considering the impact it will have on the environment.

Reducing Your Meat Consumption

Vegan products, such as Impossible Burger or Gregg's vegan sausage roll have taken up the headlines in recent months, perhaps because they break convention so dramatically. But there's no reason for people to feel forced into the vegan diet, as is often a point of contention. Just swapping out a few ingredients from your usual weekly dietary consumption for plant-based alternatives can help you do your bit. For instance, purchasing vegan mayo might be your first step, as it's becoming more and more commonplace on our shelves. The more people do this, the less the harmful environmental impact the agricultural industry can have.

Spread Awareness

You needn't become a frightful bore only talking about the environment to your friends and nothing else, but it can't hurt to mention that you're making certain decisions, or why you are, or to share your opinions on climate changes and how much of an effect is it having worldwide. The more awareness can spread, the healthier the conversation around climate change will be.

With this advice, I hope you can make a few changes to help our lovely planet!

Fancy some spice this season? In this blog post I am going to share with you a super tasty, easy and affordable recipe with Schwartz's Fajita Seasoning. This seasoning is a brilliant cupboard staple that can be used in your weekly meals such as pasta bakes, stews, chicken kebabs and of course fajitas. A little life saver to add some spice to any dish!


I decided to pair these delicious fajitas sweet potato wedges with a vegan aioli dip. These wedges make a super easy meal on their own, or a perfect side with some protein and veg for a balanced dinner. I make these fajita wedges all the time at university as they make such a quick meal, and the dip adds a little extra yumminess if you're feeling extra fruity.


Fajita Sweet Potato Wedges

Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil

• Method

Heat your oven to 180C.

Wash the sweet potatoes, peel off their skin and then cut them into wedges.

Place the wedges into a large bowl and cover the wedges in olive oil and several shakes of the Schwartz's Fajita Seasoning.

Once the wedges are fully covered, place them on to a baking tray and put them into the oven for about 25 - 35 minutes. Turn the wedges over during the cooking.

Take them out when they are golden and crispy! Now they are ready to enjoy.


Vegan Aioli

• Ingredients

3 tbsp Aquafaba [liquid drained from a can of chickpeas]
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp Salt
200ml Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 Crushed Cloves Of Garlic

• Method 

Add the aquafaba, vinegar, mustard and salt in a bowl and blend using an electric whisk.

Whilst keeping the whisk going add slowly the oil making sure it is fully combined.

Continue to blend until the mixture turns into a mayonnaise-like consistency.

Mix in the lemon juice and garlic.

Et voila!


These spicy fajita wedges taste and with a dip in the aioli oooh it's amazing, so I would certainly recommend giving this vegan aioli a try too. 

*Schwartz have sent me this product for review, but all views expressed are my own.

Ibiza is known for it's lively Hippy Markets bursting with colourful clothing, beautiful jewellery, delicious food and so much more. When I visited Ibiza this summer, I visited two wonderful Hippy Markets; Las Dalias and Punta Arabi Market.


Las Dalias

The most popular Hippy Market in Ibiza; Las Dalias is located in San Carlos. It has such an exciting atmosphere. The market features over 200 market stalls that sell all sorts of wonderful items including beauty products, clothes, jewellery, antiques, home décor and many more. There also lots of opportunities for food and the most delicious mojitos where a DJ is playing throughout the day.

Every Saturday April to October 10am - 8pm

Las Dalias also put on summer night markets to enjoy some twinkly lights, live music with a lively night-time atmosphere.


We arrived at Las Dalias in the bright Ibiza sunshine and headed into the market. There were so many beautiful items for sale. We also decided to have lunch in Las Dalias Restaurant. The restaurant offered some delicious fresh food and was situated in the heart of the market underneath vines with a relaxed atmosphere.















Punta Arabi Market

Punta Arabi is the oldest and biggest Hippy Market in Ibiza located in Es Cana. There are plenty of stalls selling all sorts of unique clothing, pretty jewellery and other handcrafted items. There is also live music performances dotted around the market, and some delicious food areas. The food areas sell amazing Spanish paella and super refreshing fruit juice - just what you need after walking around the market in the Ibiza sun!

Every Wednesday April to October 10am - 8pm


We arrived at Punta Arabi around lunchtime and headed to the food area for some delicious paella and fresh juice. Situated in the centre, there was such a lively atmosphere and the food and drinks were wonderful. After our lunch we headed around the colourful and vibrant market.






If you're planning a visit to Ibiza, I would certainly recommend adding a Hippy Market to your itinerary list. If you're which one to add to your activity plans then I slightly preferred Las Dalias as the restaurants and bars were lovely, and I felt there were more variety of across the stalls there. Overall the Hippy Markets are the most wonderful and vibrant markets I have ever been to and definitely worth a visit.

"We focus our energy on making two products the absolute best they can be without any other distractions. We're obsessed with refining our techniques to specialise in the simplicity of our mono-product offering... We craft prime burgers and serve wild, fresh Atlantic lobsters."
- Burger & Lobster


Along the West India Quay in Canary Wharf is a delicious restaurant called Burger & Lobster. A place that specialises in the most delicious burger and lobster dishes, as well as some wonderful cocktails and mocktails.


The menu doesn't have a huge selection of dishes to choose from, however as the name suggests, Burger & Lobster specialises on two main meals - burgers and lobsters. I opted for the B&L Burger with fries.

B&L Burger
5oz beef patty topped with grilled lobster meat, brie, truffle and tarragon mayo, fennel and Chinese cabbage.

Fries
Our classic B&L fries


It was the first time I had tasted lobster and it was so delicious. The burger tasted absolutely amazing too, and it is clear that Burger & Lobster have spent time perfecting the dishes that they offer.


For a drink, I had a Lobster Martini.

Lobster Martini
Absolut vodka, rose, pineapple, vanilla, passionfruit, pomegranate, lime, fizz

Inside the restaurant was cosy and chilled. There is also an outside seating area which would be lovely in the summer, however it was raining the evening we visited (typical) so we stayed nice and dry inside.


I would definitely recommend a visit to Burger & Lobster. It's not the place for you if you're after a larger variety of choice, or a cheap and cheerful burger - however if you're after some deliciously prepared lobster or burgers as a treat then I would highly recommend it.

I would definitely recommend a visit to Burger & Lobster. It's not the place for you if you're after a larger variety of choice, or a cheap and cheerful burger - however if you're after some deliciously prepared lobster or burgers as a treat then I would highly recommend it.
