Every new year brings with it a sense of renewal! Towards the end of last year, we officially launched our new program WW Freestyle™—forging a new path to wellness. As a dietitian and nutrition scientist, it makes me so proud to launch Freestyle’s new features (see p4 for the full list!) that are going to have an even greater impact on the health and wellness of millions of people across the globe. From the flexibility I now get from FitPoints® 2.0 in reaching my activity goals, to the new mindfulness tools (such as our in-app collaboration with Headspace) helping to keep me calm and balanced, there’s so much to be excited about. But what I’m most proud of is that we have opened our doors to anyone looking to build healthy…

weight watchers reimagined

Wellness that Works. A holistic approach to well-being that moves far beyond weight loss. WW has long been a global leader in weight management, and while that’s something we’ll always celebrate (and be known for), we have evolved to focus on the importance of overall wellness. Why the change? We know that wellness encompasses so much more than a number on the scale: it’s about how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. Having inspired healthy habits among millions of people over the past five decades, WW is well-equipped to help many more people improve their lifestyle. The new WW tagline, ‘Wellness that Works’, demonstrates this shift away from weight loss towards universal health, explains President and Chief Executive Officer Mindy Grossman. “We are committed to always being the best weight management program on…

ASK AN EXPERT Managing migraines & headaches More than five million Australians are affected by headaches and migraines, according to the Brain Foundation. Senior neurologist and a director at the charity, Professor Tissa Wijeratne, shares some steps to investigate and relieve the pain: • See if you can identify a pattern to your headaches or migraines, which may help you identify triggers. Your headache could have something to do with stress, or even relate to certain food or drink. • If migraines come from the neck, try to do stretches, stay mobile and take breaks from your desk. • Use a screen a lot? Rest your eyes at intervals and consider getting glasses with blue light filters. Focus on objects far away on and off over the day to give your eye muscles a break. •…

1 Pick smart snacks. Bananas contain potassium and magnesium, which can help you drift off, while almonds, pistachios and cherries are high in sleep-inducing melatonin. 2 Follow the cues. Don’t stick to your regular schedule. Instead, use meal services and the dimming of lights as signals for when to sleep. 3 Switch the blue light on your screen to yellow. Most devices now have an option to turn on a warmer backing light, which may make it easier to fall asleep once you’re done. 4 Skip the drinks trolley in favour of water. Packing your own water bottle (keep it empty to get through customs) may help to encourage you to drink more.…

sun smarts

When should I apply sunscreen? Even when it’s cold or overcast outside the UV index (see right) may be high, so it’s important to wear sun protection consistently. Putting on sunscreen 20 minutes before going out is ideal as it allows the product to bind properly to the skin. The Cancer Council recommends reapplying 20-30 minutes after being outside and every two hours after that. Is sunscreen enough? Because sunscreen only provides a screen—not a block—it’s important to use other methods of protection when going outside for longer than a few minutes. The Cancer Council recommends a combination of SPF 30+ sunscreen or higher, protective clothing, a hat and sunglasses. Do I need lots of sun to avoid getting vitamin D deficiency? Most Australians get enough vitamin D with just a few minutes of sun…

what does it mean?

UVR Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is invisible energy produced by the sun. It’s made up of three wavelengths—UVA, UVB and UVC. UVA/UVB These are the wavelengths that can reach the earth’s surface and have the potential to cause damage to our skin and eyes. SPF The sun protection factor (SPF) is the measure of how much UV gets through the sunscreen. The higher the number, the less UV passes through. UV INDEX A tool that measures UV levels. When the index is forecast to reach 3 or above, sun protection is recommended to prevent skin damage. You can check UV forecasts via news and weather services, or by using the Cancer Council’s SunSmart app.…
