3 things I’m go­ing to try this spring...

It’s the per­fect time to kick­start healthy new habits and try new trends. Here are a few to check out

1 RE­DUC­ING FOOD WASTE

The big­gest food trend this year isn’t a new su­per­food to ri­val kale, but a cam­paign that’s gath­er­ing mo­men­tum: re­duc­ing food waste. Aussie house­holds throw away the equiv­a­lent of three full fridges’ worth of food every year! But there are sim­ple ways to im­prove this, from plan­ning meals for the week so you don’t over­buy at the su­per­mar­ket, to freez­ing left­overs and find­ing cre­ative ways to make the most of every scrap – in stocks and sauces, even pick­les. It’s some­thing we should all be mak­ing an ef­fort to im­prove.

2 NINJA WAR­RIOR TRAIN­ING

Af­ter watch­ing the hit first sea­son of Aus­tralian Ninja War­rior, I’m feel­ing in­spired to get off the couch and try ob­sta­cle train­ing. And it seems I’m not the only one, with Ninja War­rior-in­spired gyms pop­ping up all around the coun­try. The En­duro course at Sky Zone Mi­randa in south­ern Syd­ney has a fly­ing fox, cliffhanger, wedge run and spi­der wall. For the re­ally com­pet­i­tive, Sky Zone even has a live leader board so you can race against fel­low ob­sta­cle par­tic­i­pants. Check it out: sky­zone.com.au

3 COS­METIC ACUPUNC­TURE

Acupunc­ture can treat a whole range of health con­cerns – the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion lists al­most 30 clin­i­cally proven uses – but it’s also emerg­ing as a use­ful beauty treat­ment, es­pe­cially for those who’d pre­fer not to go down the more in­va­sive route of cos­metic treat­ments. Acupunc­tur­ists claim the nee­dles can help stim­u­late the pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen, and are great for treat­ing fine lines and wrin­kles, bags un­der the eyes, acne, der­mati­tis and eczema. That’s got to be worth a try!
