Irish Independent - Health & Living - - UPDATE - WITH EILISH O’RE­GAN

Hi

Wel­come to this week’s edi­tion of Health & Liv­ing magazine. With the re­al­ity of back to school loom­ing for many fam­i­lies, we’re wav­ing good­bye to a long hot sum­mer of chaotic bed­times and lazy morn­ings. How will we ever get ev­ery­one out of the house in the morn­ing?

If you’re dread­ing that fran­tic break­fast-time rush where nerves get frayed, lunches get lost and ev­ery­one ends up late, help is at hand. We’ve rounded up a wealth of ex­pert tips and an­swer to the ques­tions you’ve al­ways won­dered about: What’s the best time to get up? What should you eat and drink first thing? And does a morn­ing work­out re­ally boost en­ergy lev­els? Find out on pages 6 & 7.

And, of course, your morn­ing will go bet­ter if you’ve had a good night’s rest — find out how with our small steps for bet­ter sleep on pages 4 & 5.

De­spite stut­ter­ing since he was a child, En­nis man Ol­lie Glee­son now works as a tour guide for a liv­ing. Find out how he learned to cope with and man­age his speech im­ped­i­ment on pages 8 & 9.

Patricia Casey asks if we ex­pect too much from mind­ful­ness on page 9, Katie Byrne ex­plores the ben­e­fits of be­ing idle on page 11, and Dr Nina Byrnes has ad­vice for a reader with a sus­pected peni­cillin al­lergy on page 10.

David Cole­man helps a mum man­age a tricky sit­u­a­tion on page 14, and Siob­han Byrne shows you how to stretch your glutes on page 15.

Un­til next week!

Liz
