Mums’ are busy people. They do all sorts of jobs from cleaning the house to helping with homework, to cooking dinner and dropping the kids at school. Overall, Mums’ are always thinking of their family and rarely thinking about themselves.
Why not remind your Mum how special she is and how much you love her but make sure she’s pampered and looking after herself. After all, she’s always looking after you. Here are my top 7 tips to look after your Mum and give your Mum a treat:
1. Remedial Massage
A remedial massage is a fantastic way to help Mum relax. When muscles in the body become knotted and tense a remedial massage provides benefits by stimulating the blood allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed, calming the peripheral nervous system and relaxing muscles, easing pain and improving mobility.
So after a busy day at the office, or running around after the kids, Mum would appreciate a nice relaxing massage to relieve the stress and get those muscles moving again.
2. A trip away
Give Mum a special treat and send her away on a relaxing holiday, even if it’s only for a weekend.
There is nothing like a trip away to recharge the batteries. Maybe choose a spa weekend or even a weekend away at a Country Hotel.
No matter what your budget is you can find all sorts of holidays to surprise your Mum and be kind to your wallet.
3. Breakfast in bed
There is nothing quite like indulging in breakfast in bed, especially when the weather is cool. Pamper your Mum with a healthy treat and breakfast in bed. For great Healthy breakfasts check out my blog iamjamielloyd.com

4. Run a hot magnesium bath
After a stressful and tired day run a hot bath with magnesium.
Magnesium is a super mineral that has numerous benefits.
Your Mum will love this as Magnesium helps alleviate aches and pains and reduces stress. Oh and if you rub magnesium oil on your legs and arms before going to bed you will have the best night sleep ever!
5. Make a Supergreens Salad
Giving your Mum a Supergreens Salad will give her more energy and help her look younger! Knock up a Supergreens Salad and load it with seeds. These foods are high sources of calcium and are a good plant alternative to dairy. Teeth are comprised of bone and we are aware of the importance of bone preservation during the aging process, so add lots of sesame seeds and dark greens to your lunch salad.
6. Give your mum some dark chocolate
Dark chocolate keeps cells healthy. This yummy treat houses a high dose of anti-oxidants. A daily one bite size serving of a dark chocolate containing 70% or higher cacao content is another great way to keep skin vibrant.
After treating your Mum to a Sunday roast why not take your Mum for a nice walk at a local park. But even a walk around the block works wonders to clear your head and improve your mood. And when you’re physically working your body, it goes without saying that you feel better about your appearance and your Mum will love you for if as she will feel happier as her body is oxygenated

'Healthy Heart Foods' in Mens Fitness Magazine recently..
“Health and Fitness Coach, at Jamie Lloyd Health and Fitness, I spend a
considerable amount of time talking to people about getting
more vegetables or greens into their diets. A common dietary trend among our
young athletes and even some of our adults is a serious lack of creativity or
willpower when it comes to eating more of the green stuff. As a way to help the
world at large consume more veg, I have come up with this list of seven
strategies to get more vegetables in your diet.
Plus add in some Sun Chlorella Powder which is bursting of nutrients like nutrients include Iron, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and Folic Acid which will add a bit of zing to your workouts! go check out the website.... https://www.sunchlorella.co.uk/shop/
2. Put some meat on the skillet or wok; think chicken, beef, or whatever you like
3. Let the meat cook for a minute or so.
4. Add a ton of veggies; I tend to use frozen broccoli, cauliflower, or stir-fry mixes.
5. Stir it around a few times.
6. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes, until the veggies and meat are cooked to your liking.
7. Eat and Enjoy! It’s as simple as that.
1 bunch kale
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
c. Tomatoes (Yes, they’re technically fruits, but who cares? They are good for you.)
d. Salsa (best for those who are “easing” their way into vegetables)
g. Asparagus (if you’re feeling bolder)
h. The list goes on and on…
