Mel Bragg's fun exercise tip
Q: What does healthy living mean to you?
For me it means having balance both physically and mentally. Exercise and fitness (netball in particular) plays a massive role in my life and for me to be able to maintain that it’s important to ensure I’m fuelling my body well, as well as taking some ‘me time’.
Q: Why do you think it's important to lead a healthy lifetyle?
I think it’s important to lead a healthy lifestyle so that you can achieve the things you like to do. Eating healthy, good quality food and exercising gives me the energy I need to complete daily tasks, and it makes me feel good.
Q: What's your best healthy food tip?
My tip would be to plan your meals for the week ahead. Having a menu for the week with some healthy recipes reduces the temptation to buy things you don’t need. My go-to meal is a homemade Thai curry loaded with different vegetables!
