bon voyage

Reading our travel handbook in this issue had me itching to hit the road. There are so many brilliant reasons to change locations and venture out into the world. And while I love to dream big in this department, I have to confess that the process of actually getting away often puts me in a spin: checking and rechecking airline websites for the cheapest flights, deliberating over the best place to stay, worrying about myself or the kids getting sick – before, during or after the trip – figuring out what will be enjoyable for grown-ups and children alike… By the time I leave I need a holiday to recover from my holiday planning. For many of us (particularly control freaks like me), it also requires being brave about leaving our…

About four years ago I bought your magazine from our local newsagent on the off chance it may be a good read! I became a subscriber, which I have been ever since. It is the only magazine I buy; it is so informative and interesting, and the July issue was brilliant! I am 81 years old and I was into health and fitness when I was a teenager in the UK before it was fashionable. My friend’s mother would save the monthly women’s magazine she bought and pass it on to me. If there were any exercises displayed I would collect all the information, then I would hide in my bedroom and practise – much to the amusement of my sisters. I still work out at home, and find the…

recharge yourself

We hear about people suffering from burnout at work due to the stresses of their professional environment, but feeling emotionally, physically, and mentally drained is something that can occur in our social lives too. While doing our best to achieve that elusive work/life balance, we can sometimes end up putting too many demands on ourselves to always be available. Although it’s great to get out and go for dinner, or catch up over a glass of wine – if you feel as if you’re spending a lot of time and energy trying to meet social expectations while juggling everything else in your life – remember that it’s entirely acceptable to take a step back from it all. Easier said than done, you might think, but if you’re feeling socially fatigued,…

georgie’s luscious lamb shanks

“I love lamb shanks. First, I fry up onion, garlic and leek together in a pan, then throw in a can of chopped tomatoes, along with some tomato paste, red wine, and chicken stock. Next, I chop up whatever vegetables I have in the fridge – usually zucchini, capsicum and celery – and then add some beans and peas. Then, I place the shanks in a baking dish, cover with the above mix, and put it in the oven. I like to slowly cook it for four or five hours until the meat just falls off the bone, I love it. Plus, the next day even if you’ve eaten all the meat, the leftover stock is amazing.”…

sleep your way stress free

It’s increasingly evident that a sound night’s sleep works wonders for your mood, energy and the long-term health of your brain and body. And despite most of us knowing the ‘right’ things to do – a regular routine, keeping the bedroom tech-free and so on – it can still be hard to get those eight hours every night. Mindfulness is a wellbeing practice that’s been on the radar for a while, and guess what – you can use it to improve your sleep too. Mindfulness is all about acceptance of, but not dwelling on, thoughts and feelings, and instead focusing on your breath and being in the moment. “In this sense, trying to force yourself to fall asleep – or resisting being awake – is a non-starter,” says Anna Black, author of…
