If there’s one thing no one can ignore, it’s that Aussie women in sport are crushing it on the world stage. From Ash Barty winning the French Open at Roland-Garros (the first Australian woman in 46 years to take the title, rocketing to the world number one spot soon after), to the Australian Women’s Cricket team triumphing over England to take home the Ashes, or Sally Fitzgibbons riding to victory at the World Surf League Pro in Rio, there’s never been a more exciting time to be a sports fan. And we couldn’t be happier about it! Back in 2011, Women’s Health saw a need: to create a campaign that would celebrate our female athletes, putting them front and centre, where they always belonged. Since then, WinS has grown to…

THE BIG QUESTION I’ve sprained my ankle. How do I ease myself back into sport? Answer Ugh, frustrating, but well done for being cautious. “It’s best to stay patient to allow a full recovery,” says PT Bradley Simmonds. “That’s six to eight weeks’ healing time,” advises specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist Charlotte Pilgrim. Basically, you’ve overstretched your ligament – the structures that connect bone to bone. “You need to rebuild strength in the muscles around the ligament,” she explains. During that recovery time, work on regaining mobility – move your feet up and down and in and out; add a band to the exercises to increase resistance. “Then you can progress to more functional training. For soccer, start with straight-line running before working on change of direction. Part of the rehab process will be…

splash on happy

They say money can’t buy happiness but, frankly, we can think of a few splurges that’d spark joy: VIP Coachella tickets, a 24 carat gold leaf facial and an endless supply of Maggie Beer’s Burnt Fig, Honeycomb & Caramel Ice Cream ( just trust us). Good news then: it turns out that splashing your cash might not be the worst idea if you’re in need of a mood boost. Well, sort of. A study led by researchers at the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School suggests that using your money to buy free time (say, paying to delegate household chores, such as cleaning and cooking) is linked with greater life satisfaction. And with time on your side, you can put it back into the things that matter, including…
