honest effort

I always think February is the month to really get stuck in with any New Year’s resolutions to improve your life. I know I have never successfully kickstarted a new exercise regime or changed my diet on January 1. For me, the first month of the year is a time to soak up the sunshine, hang out with the kids, and enjoy barbecues and a couple of wines with friends. But by the time February rolls around, I’m ready to get serious, and in this issue we’ve included a bumper guide to putting aside the party season and detoxing your life. Now’s the time to really give your liver, gut and your mind a break. It isn’t just about overhauling your eating and drinking habits – although we do have some wonderful…

have your say

A BLESSING Getting a Good Health & Wellbeing subscription as a gift from my mum has been such a blessing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read a piece of information in the mag which has directly related to me. From the little tips and tricks on how to practise wellness, to articles on health issues and warning signs, the magazine has helped me change parts of my day-to-day life for the better. Feeling great inside and out – thanks team! – Andrea GREAT ADVICE The summer holidays are always such a good opportunity to sit back and relax, and your magazine is always my favourite relaxation tool. Once the kids are off playing and the hubby is busying himself with his next outdoor project, I make myself a cuppa and…

I always love your magazine, but January was a particularly good read! The article on Sophie Pascoe was fantastic – what a strong young woman. It’s really good to see such open and frank discussions on mental health and other struggles being put out in the media – I’m sure it will inspire many others going through similar issues. I also really enjoyed the article on dating apps and today’s throwaway society. A very thought-provoking read which I’ll be passing on to my young adult children to read as well.…

decision overload

We all know about FOMO (fear of missing out), but now we have to grapple with FOBO (fear of better options) – the latest term to be coined that may explain our inability to make even the simplest of decisions due to choice overload, which in turn could be fuelling our anxiety. We’ve all been there when ordering at a restaurant; deciding on a dish can be difficult enough and there’s always the chance that someone else’s meal will come out looking better. Now New York-based author Patrick McGinnis, who’s behind the concept of FOMO, is claiming that FOBO syndrome is making us all indecisive and unreliable, and therefore, miserable. IT DOESN’T HELP THAT WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF OPTIONS AT OUR FINGERTIPS It doesn’t help that we have thousands of options at our…
