IN one of our very inspiring stories this month, Cheryl Moodley explains how she started eating low-carb, lost 17kg and beat her debilitating depression. It’s a great success story, but what struck us was that before she could even start her low-carb journey, she had to get her head straight.

Knitting is the most relaxing thing we can do, according to a new study by Psychological Science Professor, Matthew J Zawadzki at the University of California. He found that engaging in a mentally stimulating hobby reduces stress levels – and data indicated that knitting sits at an average of 65 heart beats per minute (the normal resting heart is between 60 and 100 bpm). Knitting can decrease your average heart rate (80 bpm) by 18.75%. In the study, knitting was followed by fishing, blogging, painting, candle-making, flower-arranging, photography, baking and pottery.…
