✶ 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.
