HEALTH TIPS FOR JULY
✶ PHOTOGRAPH YOUR MOLES Why? According to recent research by Bupa Health Clinics, only 14% of us regularly check moles for changes in shape, size, texture or colour. Now we’re enjoying the summer sun, it’s even more important to keep an eye on your moles. A picture can help you compare on a regular basis. ✶ BREAKFAST LIKE A QUEEN Skipping breakfast doesn’t do our weight or concentration levels any favours. Start your day right with a combination of wholegrains, fruit and a source of protein, such as eggs. ✶ KNIT SOME RELAXATION A new report has found knitting to be as relaxing as yoga – leading to lower blood pressure, reduced levels of depression and improved wellbeing. You don’t even have to leave the sofa! ✶ BE THE EARLY BIRD Morning workouts have many benefits, research suggests – from providing you with more energy throughout the day to helping you sleep better at night. It’s time to set those alarms! ✶ TAKE A BREAK According to experts, we’re facing an epidemic of eye problems as a result of intensive screen working – with 70% of adults suffering with eye strain. Combat this by taking regular breaks from your computer throughout the day.
