10 Exercises You Can Do From Your Desk 

Working a full day at a desk is hard for the best of us, seated in the same position for up to 40 hours a week means we are stationary for a good majority of the day. As well as not physically gaining from being sat down all day, we are also hurting our body if we aren't sat in the right position and stretching. As we now spend more time working from home in the comfort of our own office, there is no better time to start doing some at home workouts, without worrying about others looking at you. According to Fitness.gov, one in three adults do not get the recommended amount of exercise they need each week, so let's start changing that.

Vegans-16
A Balanced Diet for Vegans 

Though a vegan diet is typically known for being a healthy diet and has been seen to assist in reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. However, it is crucial to take into consideration that it is just as essential to make sure you are keeping a balanced diet. While a vegan diet is one of the strictest vegetarian diets, it is a common concern when removing any food group from your diet to be careful that you are still eating healthily. As most diets vary from person to person, a strict vegan diet will cut out meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, honey, and many foods prepared with or containing these ingredients. So, with so many things off the menu, how can you maintain a balanced vegan diet?
