good for you

In difficult times, when it’s easy to feel like there is so much pain and suffering in the world, it’s important to begin by treating ourselves with kindness. When we are gentle with our own souls and respond to our physical and emotional needs we are much better equipped to extend those feelings to those around us. As healthy and happy individuals, we are more able to approach the world with openness, curiosity and concern for others.And did you know that when we are actively caring for the people in our community, the health benefits come back to us too? A review of multiple studies, which was published in the journal BMC Public Health, revealed that volunteering has favourable effects on depression, life satisfaction and wellbeing. There are many…

have your say

SHARING THE LOVE I picked up your magazine, hoping to find some health inspiration, and I’m so glad to say I wasn’t disappointed. You cover such a broad range of topics on healthy living, which made for a really interesting and varied read. As a first-time reader (and a bit of a girly girl), I was pleasantly surprised to see tips on things like makeup and perfume as well. I will definitely be sharing the mag around my family and girlfriends too! – Chelsea LITTLE STEPS Hi!

body talk

Reading about Brodie Kane’s training for marathons and the big Coast to Coast race resonated with me. Her dedication to achieving her goals is infectious. I also admire how Brodie isn’t into ridiculous diets. During my teenage years I spent too much time trying to get the best body and I would always compare myself to everyone else. I have now learnt that I just need to focus on myself, smash my personal goals and be happy in my own skin. That is my secret recipe to good wellbeing – both physically and mentally! The magazine also provides some great healthy recipes, which have given me new ideas of yummy treats and recipes to fuel my gym sessions and runs. – Catherine…

MADE FOR WALKING Give your walking workout the digital treatment with these two nifty apps. MapMyWalk by UnderArmour, the companion app to MapMyRun and MapMyRide, uses the app’s GPS to track where you’ve been walking, including the distance and duration of your stroll. You can then save your favourite routes, as well as explore other rambles that people frequent in your neighbourhood. Free from the App Store, Google Play and at mapmywalk.com. If a step-counter is more up your alley, Stepz gets our vote. The app records the number of steps and the distance you cover, and keeps a tally of your ‘lifetime’ stats. Plus, you can earn achievements over time when you walk the equivalent of monuments around the world, like the Grand Canyon. Available from the App…
