How was Christmas for you? If you are anything like me, (which I suspect you are, otherwise why else would you be here, reading my blog, trying to make yourself feel better about yourself), then it involved quite a lot of lying around.
I did do some exercise, but most of it was the ‘reaching for another piece of toffee’ kind, and I’m not sure that burns off an awful lot of calories. When I went back to netball recently then, for the first time in nearly three weeks, I was in for a bit of a surprise. It wasn’t so much that I wasn’t up to speed on the day, but the next day I found it quite difficult to get out of bed and walk up and down the stairs. Not a good sign.
Truth be told, we tend to let ourselves go a little over the Christmas period. Getting back into fitness can be an uncomfortable business and the other niggly aches and pains, which we tried to ignore as we lugged the Christmas decorations down from the attic and rushed desperately around John Lewis looking for last minute yet thoughtful looking gifts, rear their ugly heads again.
January is really not the season to be jolly at all.
This is where Salonpas Pain Relief Patch could come in handy. (You knew I was going somewhere with this didn’t you?)
Salonpas Pain Relief Patch is a groundbreaking product for the treatment of joint and muscle pain associated with strains and sprains. It’s a significant breakthrough for the millions of us who suffer from muscular pain and uses the latest technology* to deliver two pain relieving ingredients through the skin directly to the affected area. One patch of Salonpas is clinically proven to provide up to 12 hours relief and is suitable for both day and night-time use.
So there you go.
To help make your January a little less painful generally, Salonpas are offering one very lucky reader the chance to win a pair of spa vouchers, worth £99 each. These vouchers can be used at any Bannatyne Spa and Health club in the UK and entitle you and a friend to an Ultimate Elemis Spa Day, which includes an anti-ageing facial, a full body deep tissue massage and full access to the spa’s pool, gym, Jacuzzi and sauna.

*I have always wondered exactly what that expression means. In my head I imagine tiny robots and those hoovers that work all by themselves. Perhaps your pain relief is brought to you by a thoughtful hoover, who sees you wincing and thinks you could do with some help?
