This is the first year I’ve had a backpack since I was about 6 and I love it. Backpacks are so fun and I’ve been loving the benefits, especially having free hands to swing around. I have to carry around so much with me and my shoulders and neck were really starting to get tense towards the end of last year. With a backpack the weight is evenly distributed across the body and the strongest muscles in the body, the abdominals and the back support the backpack. Just be aware that you are not leaning forwards to counteract the weight of the pack as this can lead to posture problems! My nice handbags were also getting ruined from being carried around all day and I also fill them up with healthy snacks so I thought right new year, new me, new backpack!
I love adding a bit of colour with accessories and bags as I’m not so daring with the colours I wear so I bought this New Balance Red Check one and I love it! In my latest video I show you it in more detail and all the things I carry in it! I thought it might be interesting to see what a Pilates instructor and healthy lifestyle blogger carries with her day to day and you might be surprised by a few unusual items. Check out my video here! I’ve also picked my favourite four backpacks from ASOS which you can see below. I love the metallic one the best and think I might get that for Spring time…
