your best year starts here!

If you’re vowing to make this year your healthiest yet, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve packed this issue with all the practical advice and information you need to get started… and keep going. We understand that it’s not easy to start a new fitness regimen. Sometimes it takes courage to begin something new – especially if it involves showing up to a class, where everyone seems a little fitter, more agile and more experienced than you are. I still feel a twinge of nerves each time I walk into my yoga class, as everyone else seems to me to be more flexible and more advanced than I am.

MAKING MENOPAUSE EASIER I loved your article, 8 Ways to Ease Menopause (Dec/Jan). I have breast cancer and am experiencing many of these menopause symptoms due to my medication. I can’t wait to try all of the suggestions mentioned in your story and even messaged my breast cancer buddies, who are also experiencing these, and told them to grab a copy of your positive and motivating magazine. Thanks for putting a smile on my face in what is an extremely challenging time in my life. Rowena Trubiani, Vic ADVICE THAT WORKS There are so many diets that tell you to cut out fats, or carbs, or dairy. It’s very confusing and potentially dangerous.

Here are three reasons to kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes: YOU’LL BURN MORE KILOJOULES Striding on sand turns your walk into a strength-training workout for your quads, calves and glutes. When your feet sink into the grains with each step, your legs have to work hard to propel you forward. The result? Up to 50 per cent more kilojoules torched!

Taking a holiday to slow down doesn’t always work now that our pace of life is so fast.
