TICK OFF JUST ONE OF THESE AND YOU’RE CLOSER TO A HEALTHY LIFE
Bin this… SOFT DRINK
A new nationwide survey published in the Medical Journal of Australia showed 39 per cent of males and 29 per cent of females knocked back at least one sugar-sweetened beverage in a 24-hour period. That makes it the biggest sugar source in our diets. Swap it for soda water instead.
Do this… GO SKIING
A bit of winter cardio can boost your mood, improve balance and coordination, tone your torso, strengthen joints and kick your heart rate into fat-burning mode.
Fun fact: An energetic day on the slopes can burn more than 12,500kJ.
Get this… FACIAL MASSAGE
Not only can it can take you to new heights of relaxation, but a facial massage can also stimulate circulation to brighten your skin and reduces puffiness by improving blood flow. CHECK OUT OUR SNOW GEAR ON PAGE 11
Embrace this… POSITIVITY
Seeing the glass half full can earn you a longer life, researchers from Harvard University in the US have found. Good ways to take your feelgood attitude up a notch include meditating, writing in a gratitude journal or focusing your mind on the pleasure that your favourite things can bring, such as your morning latte.
