With the winter season now firmly upon us, spirits on the wane after a tough 2020 and an unusual Christmas ahead, who you gonna call?
Who else but The Big Issue’s lethargy-busting exercise and wellbeing guru Mr Motivator?
Fresh from being awarded an MBE for services to health and fitness, the 68-year-old – who overcame homelessness to become one of Britain’s best loved celebrity workout instructors – has pulled on a special seasonally-themed unitard to get us feeling good in both body and mind in the build-up to the festive season, even while cooped up at home.
“When it comes to being active during winter it’s not just about being physically active,” Mr Motivator urges us all, “we need to be mentally active as well. And being mentally active means that we need to put in place some little triggers that keeps us focused on the fact that, in the spring, things are going to be better. And that good times are going to be on the way again soon. We’ll get through this, together!”
