holidays to satisfy your wanderlust

IF THE PHENOMENON OF mystery flights taught us anything, it’s that travel is important to us. Usually chilled-out Australians were so desperate for a change of scenery that they paid hundreds of dollars for a day trip anywhere on a plane to satisfy their need for adventure. In fact, research by claims that 71 per cent of us would rather go on holiday this year than find love, and 74 per cent would prefer a getaway to getting promoted. But if you’re confused by red, amber and green lists, and if quarantining isn’t an option, it’s time to embrace the staycation. And, with our help and the glorious British Isles at your fingertips, it needn’t feel like second best. ‘Location is only one aspect of a holiday – the people you…

“this worked for me”

Janice Tracey, a nutritional therapist, found that breathing exercises helped her cope with sleeplessness. ‘Early waking devastated me when I was working and raising a family. I was exhausted! It helped to do breathing exercises the moment I woke: Two short, fast breaths in and a longer breath out, repeatedly. I’d get back to sleep about 70 per cent of the time but, even if I didn’t, the breathing helped me relax and feel rested, rather than anxious about the fact that I was not sleeping.’…

the 4 types of eating: why and how we do them

In lockdown, we experienced fear, uncertainty and unease, as well as many other negative emotions. It’s no wonder people turned to food for comfort, connection and relief. Where emotional eating goes awry is when we judge ourselves over it – because the more criticism we heap upon ourselves, the more self-sabotage ensues. Acceptance that it is a normal to eat emotionally sometimes will stop the pattern of self-criticism and self-sabotage. Kit Yoon’s ‘four types of eating’ may offer clarity on how you eat: l Fuel eating: When we consume for fuel, we satisfy the body and its hunger until we are satiated – for nourishment. What is key is to know how you want to feel before, during and after eating. If you want to feel physically satisfied, then fuel eating…

are you an emotional eater – or just hungry?

“Are you judging yourself for eating a slice of cake or a pizza? Neutralise the phrases you use about food. Eliminate the good-bad dichotomy” For anyone who views their diet in terms of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods, there may be an unexpected underlying cause for their tendency to scoff a family-sized trifle in front of the TV of an evening, despite their best intentions. ‘Very often, someone will come to me for help with comfort eating or stress eating, whatever they want to label it,’ says nutritionist Laura Thomas. ‘And they will typically mention their daily food diary – they might skip breakfast because they were in a rush, then have a salad for lunch because they were being “good”, then hit the gym after work. By the time they get home,…

how i became a therapist

I started training as a therapist while working as a producer in the video game and television industry. Music and clubbing were a big part of my life and, although I had amazing times, the impact of this pursuit of hedonism, coupled with working in the entertainment industry, was a cocktail that led to depression, and emotional and physical depletion. I realised that I had to change my lifestyle and look after my health. Yoga played a huge part in helping me heal and I trained to become a yoga teacher. I always wanted to understand the science behind why yoga worked, and this has now become central to my work as a psychotherapist. I am passionate about explaining the science of how breath and movement can be used as healing…
