Bedtime benefits Setting a regular sleep and waking time is one of the best things you can do for your body. A recent study of nearly 2000 people between the ages of 45 and 84 found that adults who don’t were more likely to experience insufficient sleep duration and interrupted sleep cycles. Plus, it found that irregular bed and waking times may also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, hypertension and diabetes. What better excuse to snuggle up with a good book that bit earlier? 10 YEARS According to a new report in The Lancet, Australia is on track to reduce its cervical cancer diagnosis rate to fewer than four women per 100,000 per year in the next decade, thanks to the HPV vaccine.

healthy holidays

WIND DOWN FIRST It normally takes a few days to switch off from the stress of life before you can relax and enjoy your time away. To speed up the process, try not to overcommit yourself on your last day of work. That way it will be easier to begin the process of unwinding and transitioning into holiday mode. FORGET ABOUT WORK Set a clear boundary between work and holiday and stop checking those emails! If you’re finding it difficult to switch off, transfer all your thoughts to paper or type them into your phone. Then don’t look at them again—they’ll still be there when you get back to work. BE MINDFUL Encourage a peaceful and relaxed mindset by starting each day of your holiday with a quick five-minute meditation. Try to practise mindfulness throughout…

ww’s billion dollar benefits

It’s no secret that many areas in our country’s health system are often financially stressed as they become increasingly burdened by limited staff and budget cuts. But a new study shows WW’s wellness program could be a way to help ease these strains. According to University of Sydney research findings, WW members could help take the financial pressure off the Australian health system to the tune of $17 billion. Looking at 7.8 million Australians over the age of 20 who are overweight or obese and eligible for weight-loss intervention between 2015 and 2025, the study predicted the cost and health benefits of the WW program. In good news for WW members, the research showed that being referred to these wellness programs by doctors is more economically effective for patients dealing with obesity…

just what the doctor ordered?

It’s not just the Australian health system that could cash in if WW’s programs become part of a Medicare-subsidised treatment. Australians who are overweight or obese could get more bang for their buck when it comes to their overall health and wellness. Lowering obesity levels has many health benefits for individuals. Even a small change can improve wellness by lowering the risk for diabetes and cardiovascular problems, such as heart disease or stroke. Other benefits can include improved metabolic function in liver, fat and muscle tissue. Tackling obesity can also help lower the risk of high blood pressure, back pain and osteoarthritis. As well as the costs saved in the health system for avoiding these issues, this also has the added advantage of helping people live a happier, healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.…

how rollovers work

In many ways, Mondays and Sundays can seem worlds apart. On a Monday, most of us are full of good intentions, we’ve got work or school commitments to occupy us and the social calendar is pretty empty. Keeping our well-being on track is usually quite straightforward. Weekends can be a different story—long, lazy lunches, birthday celebrations and evenings out with friends present an assortment of opportunities for us to potentially eat or drink more than you planned. This needn’t be a cause for concern. When it comes to eating, every day is unique, which is why WW offers plenty of flexibility to help you achieve your goals. What are rollovers? Some days, we don’t use all the SmartPoints assigned to our daily Budget, while on other days we use them all—and maybe a…
