Belong and be happier

Create social connections for mental wellbeing

Belong and be happier

Belonging and connecting with others has a significant impact on our health and happiness. At Studio Rubix, we look at each side of the Rubik's cube as representing different elements of wellness; physical fitness, nutrition and energy, mental health, and social connectedness is one of these. 

Scientists started tracking Harvard students in 1938 during the Great Depression and over the following 80 years and subsequent studies on participants physical and mental health deduce that "our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships has a powerful influence on our health". 3 key lessons from the studies indicate:

1) social connections makes us happier

2) close relationships protect our brains 

3) quality relationships, rather than quantity, matter most

Snack Survival Tips

Foods to keep you going between meals

Snack Survival Tips

Snacking has become a huge part of peoples diets, and preoccupies many of your thoughts over the day. What to eat? How much to eat? Is this healthy? Should I have protein? Is a piece of fruit too high in sugar? 

Argh, when did it become so complicated?!

So I want to simplify it with a few suggestions...are you ready for change?

Get back with these exercises.

Strengthen your posterior chain and stand taller!

Get back with these exercises.

Slumped over your desk or phone most of the day? Driving for long periods? Looking down at your desk or busy typing away for hours on end?

If you're guilty of this, like most of us in this IT dominated world then chances are we are tightening up through the chest, rolling shoulders forward, tightening up neck flexors. On the flip side the muscles on the back of our body (posterior chain) will become weaker, redundant for long periods of time, muscles may tighten like the lower back and hamstrings. They are not primed to then take loads when we do decide to move. We feel imbalanced.

The focus will be on adding pulling and extensor exercises into your routines whether that be scheduled exercise or just time on the floor after the kids are in bed..
