The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones. Alternative medicine is a more popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medical approaches but are often used along with conventional medicinal protocols.  Coping and dealing with stress in a positive manner play a major role in maintaining the balance needed for health and well-being.

They’re perfect to do at home to aid mental health and stay fit despite being unable to leave the house.


Mahny Djahanguiri, founder and author of Doga, said, “Doga is mainly for humans, but it’s a great way for owners to strengthen the bond that already exists between you and your dog. If you’re stressed and tense, your dog will pick up on it and it will show in their behavior. Yoga is a great way to relieve this tension and it helps to make your dog feel relaxed while also spending extra time with them.”


It’s important to block out the intimidating images of what counts as fitness these days and find something you enjoy doing.


“There is so much pressure for people to stay fit and conform to the unrealistic body images that are now widely available on Instagram,” said Fiona Comport, marketing communications manager with Sculpsure. “However, if you don’t enjoy the exercise, you’re not going to do it. That’s why it’s so important to find something you enjoy, especially when you’re exercising from home.”

EXERCISE IN YOUR OWN LIVING ROOM

The current lockdown enforced in light of the COVID-19 pandemic means many people are now unable to go to the gym or take part in their usual fitness activities and classes. You may be among those worried about how you will continue to stay fit without leaving home.


Many fitness classes have now gone online. That means you can still take part in alternative and fun fitness classes from the comfort of your own living room.


Bami Kuteyi, founder of Bam Bam Boogie Dance Fitness (www.bambamboogie.com), has migrated her entire class timetable online. “People are seeking out more ‘fun’ exercise options now as it’s all about the aesthetic of the experience, especially for millennials where things need to be Instagrammable to even consider attending,” she said. “Traditional exercise seems mundane and outdated by comparison. The focus is only on losing weight and fitting into this skinny mold, which is no longer necessarily the ideal or desirable look. Also, traditional fitness classes are taught in a more militant way, whereas new fun exercise classes are much more uplifting, focusing on support and creating a community for overall wellness, which includes mental health, as well as physical health.”


Classes such as Doga (yoga for you and your dog), Burlesque and Twerk After Work have become more popular ways to enjoy exercise.
