SWEET DREAMS I absolutely love Good Health magazine and always look forward to my monthly subscription landing in the mail. It is my go-to pick-me-up when I’m feeling down or need some motivation. One of my favourite articles in the March edition was ‘The Secret of the Sleep Window’. I have always had trouble sleeping due to stress, anxiety and a very active mind, so I was extremely excited to see some simple yet effective suggestions to help me achieve a good night’s sleep. With an awareness of the different windows of sleep, I have applied some simple changes and my sleep pattern has already improved dramatically. By downloading the Sleep Cycle app, I have woken up during the second non-REM stage and no longer feel groggy. Thank you for all…

it’s a goodie!

Having been diagnosed with breast cancer this year, I’m out and about at appointments a lot. One of these appointments is at my chemotherapy session, where my girlfriend comes to sit with me. When she departs, she gives me a goodie bag, and every month I get some lovely goodies, with my favourite being an issue of Good Health. It’s not just any magazine that I want, this magazine inspires me to look after myself. My favourite has been this month’s helpful tips about sleep to try to improve the quality of my sleep as I lead myself back to recovery and cure. Thank you and keep up the good work! Write in and WIN! This month’s star letter wins a range of Plunkett’s Nutri-Synergy products. Natural dermatology for dry and sensitive…

mother of reinvention

‘NO-ONE HAS IT ALL TOGETHER. SOME ARE JUST BETTER PRETENDERS’ In today’s world of hyper-perfect, painstakingly curated Instagram posts, where we are guilt-tripped by a daily assault of images of ridiculously organised kitchen pantries, fat-free washboard abs, and multi-tasking yummy mummies, Jessica Rowe is an absolute breath of fresh air. Messy, unfiltered, down-to-earth – and fabulously funny to boot, you can’t help but fall for her easy charm and infectious snort-filled chuckle. And, personality aside, her ‘crap housewife’ social media posts are the ultimate antidote to this slew of Insta-perfect one-upmanship. Life is hard enough without pretending that you have to be amazing at something all the time’ “It’s exhausting!” a giggling Jessica groans to Good Health & Wellbeing. “Especially with social media where people present their front-of-house image to the world, you know…

jessica’s tasty tacos

“I’m loving these at the moment, they’re so simple and tasty. I buy the taco kits you can get – you know, the ones you get in either hard or soft tacos – and cook the mince using the taco seasoning inside. I throw a can of sweetcorn in too. While the mince is cooking I cut up tomato, avocado and lettuce, and then grate some cheese and dish up some sour cream – all in separate bowls. Done! My hubby and girls can then assemble them, however they want. It’s such a lovely, easy meal that ticks off your protein and your veges. For me, when it comes to cooking, the simpler the better.”…
