IT’S TOO early in the year to be stressed already, a colleague commented recently. We’ve barely seen the end of Januworry and we’re already desperately looking forward to the next holiday and a few days’ rest.I must admit I sometimes struggle to switch off and when there are many things that need to be done with only so much time in the day, the first thing to go is downtime.The irony is that taking time out to exercise or make healthy meals will allow me to cope with all the demands so much better yet it’s usually right down at the bottom of my to-do list!I’d love to hear from you if you’ve managed to find quick, easy ways to unwind or de-stress or to take small time-outs –…

CELEBRATE THE ONES YOU LOVE I RECENTLY overheard two young men chatting in a coffee shop. They were complaining about the commercialisation of not only Valentine’s Day but also Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Their complaints gave me much food for thought.There’s more to this than meets the eye. These are days for all of us to appreciate the people who enhance our lives. Without a shadow of doubt, money talks, but life’s too short to let the opportunities slip through your fingers to show love and appreciation to friends, colleagues and especially loved ones.It’s only a few days a year set aside to celebrate love and happiness. Let’s grab these opportunities to show our appreciation on these special days. Some say, “But every day should be Valentine’s…

FRIENDLY VICTORIA Since speculation regarding Victoria Beckham keeps featuring in your magazine (YOU, 31 January), you may be interested to hear of my cousin Alison’s interaction with her. She received an MBE at the same time as Victoria, and my aunt went along as a guest.While Alison was waiting, Victoria came up to her and simply said, “Hello, I’m Victoria. What is your category?” They chatted and Victoria, who looked rather stressed, confessed that she’d barely made it in time as it was such a mission getting her family organised.After the awards my aunt said David came up to Victoria and gave her a really loving congratulatory hug. CLAERWEN, EMAIL CHRISTIANS? I DON’T THINK SO I read your article on the Watson family (YOU, 31 January)…

a bumpy ride

Why does Meghan show off her stomach by constantly putting her hands on it, wearing high heels and generally pushing it in our faces that she’s pregnant (YOU, 7 February).It’s not the English way of conducting yourself, especially in royal circles. It’s so American and however much she tries, she’ll never ever come close to Kate or Diana.And, boy, can she spend money on clothes! I read that in January this year she spent £40 000 (about R700 000). That’s more than many people make in a year. Kate recycles her clothes and is the epitome of elegance. P BALDWIN, EMAIL■ To all the critics of the Duchess of Sussex, let her be. Pregnancy is a beautiful and awesome experience for most women. Meghan can touch her bulging bump…

in brief

I’m sick and tired of hearing about how rich people reuse their expensive clothes and how wonderful that makes them. We all do it. What’s the big deal? UNIMPRESSED, SMSHow can the SABC allow two nature programmes – Safari Live on SABC3 and 50/50 on SABC2 – to overlap? Whoever is responsible for such bad planning should be fired. ED CROCKER, EMAILAfter a zillion attempts I’ve just won the Blockbuster crossword dictionary! Never give up. Thanks, YOU. MOXIE, SMS These crazy twins, Debs and Carol from Durbs, love their YOU magazines so much they’re even willing to read them with their broken glasses so they don’t miss out! DEBBIE GRUVE, EMAIL The article on adult braces (YOU, 31 January) made me think back to when my teenage son…
