when one glass turns into three

Now that your work ‘commute’ possibly involves stepping a few paces into the next room, have you noticed that you’ve lost that useful sense of separation between office life and home life? At the end of each day, how do you ‘decompress’ from the mental whirl of the hundreds of emails and switch off when there isn’t a bus ride or a car journey between your computer and your couch? Why… perhaps it’s time for a gin and tonic? I know I’m not alone in feeling that pouring a drink feels like a pleasant, even celebratory, way to bookmark the end of a busy working day, for right now alcohol sales are soaring. Certainly when this whole work-from-home life began, for me a drink before dinner quickly became a nightly…

A SHORE THING What a great magazine you continually provide us with. I particularly liked “Take your walk to the beach” (Feb/March). When my two adult children decided to head overseas, I went through a stressful time and it was walking along the beach that grounded me again. Barefoot walking on the sand was so invigorating, as you mention, and I found myself taking deep breaths in time with the waves crashing on the shore. The beach is so therapeutic. Janette Edwards, Vic THIS DIET HOLDS WEIGHT You see so many advertisements about different fad diets and the wonders they can work. As tempting as they may be, I was really excited to see that the Mediterranean diet is still ranked high for weight loss (8 best diets for weight loss in 2020, Feb/March).…

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.Dr Seuss ART HOUSE Good news for arts aficionados! Becoming immersed in culture is now not only easier (and cheaper) than ever, with famous museums and musicians offering virtual tours and performances that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home, but it’ll keep you young, too. According to a new British Medical Journal study, those who indulge in the arts regularly – be it museums, theatre, concerts, art galleries or the opera – tend to live longer than those who don’t. The research, conducted over a 14-year period, involved more than 6000 adults aged 50 and older. It found that those who engaged in an arts activity once or twice a year had a 14 per…

Get off the beaten track Pondering a sea change? Perhaps gravitate towards green space instead. While we know time spent in nature has a calming effect, science now suggests regular exposure will also safeguard our brain. A study published in Environmental Health journal analysed 678,000 adults over nine years and found that those living near a park, forest or bushland had a lower risk of developing major neurological conditions. Meanwhile, those living near major highways had a 14 per cent higher chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. A park-view apartment or country estate not on the cards? Then a regular tinker around the garden or meander through the park will still work wonders. Studies show that spending as little as 20 minutes a day in nature…

From the pantry FOR A SCRATCHY THROAT “Speed up healing by dissolving ¼ to ½ teaspoon of salt in a 250ml glass of warm water and gargle several times a day. Salt acts like a water magnet and pulls the excess fluid to reduce swelling and loosen mucus, helping to flush out irritants or bacteria.” Dr Maria Mejia de Grubb, GP TO BOOST IMMUNITY “Studies suggest that garlic has immune-boosting properties. Mince or crush one to three cloves and leave them exposed to air for a few minutes. This boosts a sulphur compound called allicin, which acts like an antimicrobial to kill viruses and bacteria. Heating can destroy allicin, so add garlic at the very end of cooking.” Dr Chris D’Adamo, integrative medicine specialist Ways to keep calm TO STOP ANXIETY “When you’re feeling anxious or suspect that a…
