Does stress-re­lief to you mean watch­ing a movie on Net­flix, read­ing your favourite fic­tion, or bing­ing on ice-cream? Well, in­ci­den­tally, they all do lit­tle to re­duce the dam­ag­ing ef­fects of STRESS – the lead­ing cause for the stag­ger­ing in­crease in can­cer, strokes and heart at­tacks in the past few years. What works is some­thing you are do­ing right now – BREATH­ING! To mark the oc­ca­sion of Stress Aware­ness Day in Novem­ber, we show you how deep breath­ing is the sin­gle most ef­fec­tive weapon against stress. Turn to ‘Ten­sion Tamers’ to un­der­stand the tech­niques of fo­cused breath­ing, and how it is a proven tool for heal­ing and well-be­ing… An­other im­por­tant health day falls in Novem­ber – World Di­a­betes Day – and to ob­serve that, we have put to­gether de­tailed ar­ti­cles on di­a­betes care and diet. Re­port­edly, mil­lions have pre­di­a­betes but don’t know about it. While ‘Health Fo­cus’ tells you why it’s im­por­tant to find out and act, to lower your risk; ‘Healthy Recipes’ serves up a de­li­cious ar­ray of dishes to pep up your di­a­betic meal. Both en­light­en­ing reads… Cover woman Mandira Bedi’s story on how she turned a fit­ness en­thu­si­ast is in­spir­ing too. Mandira is a work­out ad­dict who en­joys her long runs, weight train­ing and healthy eat­ing. ‘Fit & Fa­mous’ not only re­counts the ac­tress’ highly im­pres­sive weight loss and body­build­ing jour­ney, it is also a vis­ual de­light – Mandira’s rock hard abs will knock you out! The wed­ding sea­son has be­gun… And we at ‘H & N’ have com­piled a ‘Wed­ding Spe­cial’ that will help you be a knock-out bride and groom! Well­re­searched ar­ti­cles on bri­dal skin and hair­care; diet plans to beat D-Day stress; ad­vice on start­ing a healthy sex­ual life and more… Our Spe­cial siz­zles, as we toast to­geth­er­ness, and wish hap­pi­ness and health to all the cou­ples-to-be! Love, be loved, and happy ‘I Do’ Day!
