happy days

I can remember many times as a child when I quite literally jumped for joy. There was the time I bagged second prize in the school art competition and was rewarded with a mind-blowing $10, and the time my teacher forgot to call on me in the speech contest. As a teenager, I bounced up and down involuntarily when I learnt I got ‘Honours’ for my elementary ballet exam (the result of my previous exam was a very disappointing ‘Pass Plus’) and again when I heard I would be heading to Germany on exchange. Don’t get me wrong – there have been many joyous moments in my adult life. I am blessed with two awesome children, a great husband and two adorable stepchildren, but I don’t leap around quite so much any…

TEST OF TIME I purchase many health magazines, and happily pass them on to family and friends once I’ve finished with them. I cannot part with my Good Health magazines however, as there is always something I can refer back to. I’ve even kept a copy dating back to 2006, when it was known as Good Medicine. Thanks for continuing to produce a great mag month after month. – Olga A NEED TO READ Sitting on a plane in tears, feeling exhausted and emotional, wondering what life’s all about, I picked up your magazine with Shelley Ferguson on the front cover. I flicked through the first few pages and there it was: an article that was talking to me. Take time out, it said. It’s okay to say no, it wrote. Reconnect with…

how to save a life

What a well-informed, amazing magazine you produce. It is packed with so much relevant information for New Zealanders. In saying that, I thought us like-minded women would be interested in some information I learned today. My sister-in-law is currently in hospital receiving a blood transfusion and I was alarmed to discover that less than four percent of eligible New Zealanders are blood donors. Many of us have children, brothers, sisters and parents, and I truly believe we can help. We are a group of resilient women in New Zealand, we can donate and save lives. Thanks, ladies. You are amazing! – Mrs Skinner…

There are now cures, vaccines and medications for many debilitating health conditions. Unfortunately, dementia isn’t yet one of them. Until there is, the best way to protect yourself from experiencing a decline in memory and cognitive function is to implement healthy lifestyle changes as early as possible. » What you eat has an impact on the health of your heart and blood vessels, and the healthier these systems are, the better the blood flow will be to your brain. Current evidence suggests that following a Mediterranean diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts and seeds, with small amounts of meat and dairy, is the best way to protect the brain and memory. » Don’t skip cardio! There is solid evidence that doing aerobic exercise like walking, swimming, jogging or cycling…

GOING GREEN Looking out at your garden from your home comes with more benefits than a nice view. A study from the University of Plymouth in the UK suggests that such passive enjoyment of green spaces can help to reduce cravings for unhealthy things, such as snacks, tobacco or alcohol. Researchers asked 149 participants about their exposure to nature, as well as how much green space was present in their neighbourhoods and whether they accessed it. They found that participants who had access to a garden – whether private or a community space – reported having less frequent and less intense cravings, and those whose homes looked over a large amount of green space (making up around 25 percent of the views) also saw similar benefits.
