The Olympic Torch visits our North London neighbourhoods and ends up in Alexandra Palace close to Muswell Hill on July 25th.
With the Olympics just around the corner, the Olympic Torch is due to make its way from Finchley, in the Borough of Barnet, to Alexandra Palace, near Muswell Hill on July 25th.
People in different boroughs will dress in different colours while the torch travels through their area – and in Haringey the colour is white.
The Torch will pass through some well-known local areas around Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic including Finchley, Frien Barnet, Southgate, Palmers Green, Winchmore Hill, Edmonton, Tottenham, Wood Green and Crouch End before winding its way through to Alexandra Palace. More than 4,000 people are expected to enjoy an Evening Celebration at Alexandra Palace to round off the day.
With such a great sporting event coming to London this summer, it may encourage more of us to include exercise in our daily lives. While the benefits of exercise are widely reported many of us struggle to find the time or sometimes the necessary motivation to do any.
If you’ve been struggling to get active, here are some tips for incorporating more activity into your daily life:
- Choose activities you like and you can fit easily into your daily routine
- Work out what time suits you best to exercise and commit to sticking to it
- Exercise with family and friends to keep you motivated
- Minimise the amount of time you are stationery during the day
The amount of activity you need to do each week depends on your age. Here’s a useful link to the NHS choices website which will help you work out what your optimum activity level needs to be. http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/fitness/Pages/Activelifestyle.aspx
Remember, if you have a particular condition, before you start any new exercises, always check with your medical doctor, chiropractor or other appropriate registered healthcare professional to make sure the exercises are right for you.
