Ms Bockle: You may have heard about one magical property of water—how it’s got these special ions that splash around and give off a good vibe. Some people have miniature fountains in their living rooms, or larger ones in their gardens, and there are always loads of people who gather by waterfalls; beaches are also marvellous producers of these great ions.
Myself, I wash dishes early in the morning, and call it my water therapy. In the absence of a fountain, waterfall or the seaside, I’ll get my ions through watery activities. The best-ever start to a day I had recently involved a series of water-related activities. After washing the dishes, I did some hand-laundry, followed by a 30 minute workout in the pool. Then I had to shower and wash my hair. What a great zinger of a way to get the day started. The only small issues were that my hair stayed wet for hours and my nose wouldn’t stop running.
That start to the day washed a load of stress away, and increased the desire to keep on moving.

LaFitterina: My growing-up years were spent avoiding sports and sweat. Then, at the ripe age of 32 (when, luckily, braided terrycloth sweatbands were in style) I discovered — and fell in love with — TV aerobics: Joanie Greggains on Morning Stretch. Writing this, I just discovered archives of Joanie on Youtube, so I am happily revisiting my sweaty past . . .
Don’t let go, endure
Mizzfit: I saw the original of this video, it was a BBC production – “Life in Cold Blood” – narrated by the coolest dude to ever travel the globe, David Attenborough. This section below stuck with me and I remembered it on my run while going up hills – gotta fight off critical thoughts & bad habits. And no matter how hard it gets, you have to keep struggling for your good slice of magic. Plus, the female turtle is pretty freakin amazing!
