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?

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.

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.

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…

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 store and…
