Greg's 3 tips for wellness

Free, easy to access and rewarding

Move more

Move more, you don’t need an expensive gym membership. It’s as simple as moving more, more often and ideally in nature.

Eat well

Eliminate processed food from your diet the best you can. Try and make a little time to create something fresh.


Recovery is so important and making time for yourself is so important. Work on a healthy sleep pattern and take time to reduce stress and anxiety.
