welcome to feel good you!

I cannot believe that 2018 is behind us. What a year it was – the coldest winter (it turned practically Arctic), and one of the hottest summers on record. Now, as we enjoy the start of a new year, many of us set resolutions. I always set myself some “fun” goals – book a trip, study something or other, invest in a new handbag that I “want” not “need” – and then a few lifestyle changes, like limiting dessert to three nights a week (pah!), increasing my intake of iron-rich foods, practising yoga at least once a week… Starting the year with a plan gives you that extra motivation, particularly through these colder months, when hibernating indoors is suddenly very appealing. Want to rejig your exercise this NY? Turn to…

1 AT-HOME FITNESS Forget old-school fitness DVDs – real-time exercise classes can now be live-streamed to your TV so you can take part without stepping foot outside your home. Wearable tech (a chest strap) then transfers your stats to the screen, and you can compare progress with others on a real-time leader board. Try FIIT (£120 a year, fiit.tv), which offers a variety of classes by leading personal trainers. Convenient, comfortable and usually cheaper than going to the gym. 2 MESO-NUTRIENTS You might have heard about macro-nutrients – food groups such as proteins, fats and carbs – and maybe even micro-nutrients – vitamins and minerals – but in 2019 it’s all about the meso-nutrient! “These are beneficial active compounds in the foods you eat that makes them good for you,” explains nutritionist Kim…

keep your calm this year

From moving house to taking a flight, we all have our stressful moments.

Plus, stress also affects the integrity of our telomeres. These are little caps at each end of the strands of DNA on our chromosomes (they carry our genetic material) – it’s rather like the…

BRAIN Too much cortisol is toxic for the brain, resulting in anxiety disorders, depression and dementia. Insomnia is also caused by high cortisol levels. HAIR Stress can be a psychological catalyst for the compulsion to pull your hair out, and also releases hormones that can lead to hair loss and make nails brittle. NECK/SHOULDERS Tense muscles, particularly in the neck and shoulders, leading to headaches and other pains. This affects the average person twice a month, says AXA PPP Healthcare. HEART The release of adrenaline raises your heart rate and blood pressure. Internal organs such as the liver, brain and heart go into overdrive. Those affected by high blood pressure caused by stress are 50% more likely to suffer from heart problems. LUNGS Breathing becomes shallow, blood is diverted away from non-vital areas, dampening the immune system, and the…
