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.
