Often we can’t change the big things that are happening in our life but it’s worth remembering that there’s a lot we can do about the little ones. That might sound inadequate if you’re struggling with something major – a health crisis, relationship difficulties, challenges at work – but the good news is that making tiny tweaks can have a profound effect on how we cope. Starting with something small that can be done instantly helps give us back a sense of control. This issue we’ve got lots of tips to try when the panic is rising. Here are some of my favourites... Begin with the most basic thing of all – breathing. Our inhalations and exhalations are in sync with how we’re feeling, so if we can get them on…

NEW & IMPROVED I have two autoimmune diseases, so I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I thought I was doing well with all the exercise I do and my diet including a wide range of foods – until I read your article ‘Staying Alive’ in the June issue. Dr Greger’s Daily Dozen highlighted that my diet is, in fact, lacking in legumes, wholegrains and nuts, so thank you for this excellent feature. The breakdown of each category was also really helpful as it’s often hard to know how much of a food is required. Tonight my dinner will incorporate lentils and I’ve put nuts and Dr Greger’s books on my shopping list. – Barbara A KINDRED SPIRIT Just a quick note to say thank you for the great article on Catriona Rowntree…

CREATE – IT’S GREAT Your July issue offered many words of wisdom that inspired me, but it was your article ‘Unleash the Creativity’ that really grabbed my attention. I agree that engaging in creative activities can have a profound effect on our wellbeing. When I was a child, such pursuits were considered hobbies and we indulged often as they brought us endless joy and relaxation. Like many people, though, that slipped away when my busy adult life took over. Now I believe that getting in touch with what brought us such joy back then can have enormous benefits, whether it’s art, music or writing. As adults, we’re free to explore whatever artistic avenue appeals to us, and there are no rules, regulations or deadlines to confine us in our spare time.…

Making healthy choices at the supermarket is easy if you’re in the fresh produce section, but once you get into the aisles, it can be hard to know what’s the most nourishing option to put in your trolley. To make sense of packaging, here are some helpful tips: The order matters The first ingredients listed tend to be the ones that make up the majority of the product. Seeing sugar high on the list would be expected for a bag of lollies or a cake, but you might be surprised at how often sugar is one of the top three ingredients for items like sauces, breads and dairy products. The fewer ingredients, the better If you think about an apple, what would the ingredients list be? Apple! Any time you pick up a packet…

STEP TO IT Racking up 10,000 steps a day is seen as the holy grail of wellness, though one Harvard University researcher says we may not need nearly that many to reap the benefits. Professor I-Min Lee observed the daily step totals and mortality rates of more than 16,000 elderly American women. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that at a mere 4400 steps a day, women had significantly lower mortality rates compared to women who were least active. Mortality rates continued to drop as step count rose, but levelled off at around 7500 steps.
