healthy bodies for life

I must be what is commonly known in The Biz as a sucker for punishment. While smart fellas like Sue Barrett took up yin yoga for the annual staff fitness challenge, I did one of those loud musings over the top of my computer – an activity that should be banned in an open-plan office. “Hmmm,” said I, all buoyed up on how crap it can sometimes feel to be a woman, “I think I’ll do something that makes me feel fiercer and stronger for this year’s challenge.” “Krav Maga!” shouted Wanita, the resident office badass. I’m not proud to say I mewled a half-hearted, strangled sob at this suggestion. So, when Sinead followed that awkward moment by yelling: “Boxing!” I latched onto it gratefully. And that, dear reader, is how…

WINNING LETTER Be Kind To Yourself Thank you for your excellent feature on motherhood, which was written with an honesty that is hard to find. As a newbie mom, I am usually bombarded with pictures of perfectly made-up mothers holding smiling babies in designer outfits, so to say that your article was refreshing is an understatement. For the record: motherhood is hard. Worth it, but hard, and having read your article, this is the first time that I feel like it’s okay to say that. Since having my baby (who is now a very busy toddler), I have had to confront a lot of things about my pre-baby self and the person I am now. For one, I had naively assumed that after years of yoga and disciplined workouts, my physique would immediately…

I know meditation is an important tool for stress relief, but I battle to sit still and focus for a lengthy period. Is there any other way I can quiet my mind? ANSWER Ready for it? There totally is. Take an extreme shower: stand under super-cold or extra-steamy water for a minute or a few. The physical relief that comes after the uncomfy temps will shift your mind into a calmer state. Alternatively, try the “willingness hands” pose: sit with your palms face up on your lap, shoulders down, belly relaxed and feet on the floor. The position – one you’d never adopt if you were in danger – sends a safety signal throughout the body. Sit this way for as long as you need to quell the urge to react…
