Weight loss during winter weather EMMA HAMEL Keeping the weight off during winter months is extremely difficult. With the rain pounding outside and your latest book purchase to keep you inside, social media updates featuring log fires and hot chocolate will. Here are some ideas to keep the winter weight-gain to a minimum: ) Exercise This should go without saying, but it is important anyway. Get up and do some exercise. You don’t have to swim in the freezing Atlantic for two hours, all you need to do is make an effort to build up a sweat every couple of days. Why not join WalkForLife, buy a rebounder (a mini trampoline) which you can use from the comfort of your living room or check out your local squash league. Whatever is fun for you, that is the key. ) Look inside Make time for some introspection. If you’re anything like me, you would love to know why those sneaky kilos are finding their way onto your scale. Keep a diary, or get to work ten min-

utes early so you can sit in the car and prepare for the day. I found that hypnotherapy really helped me figure out why I viewed food and a healthy lifestyle the way I did and replace the incorrect thinking with a better attitude. ) Don’t stop eating I’d like to replace the normal rhyme of an apple a day with this: an apple a day is great if it is replacing an unhealthy snack. Watch what you’re eating. If you just read “be hungry”, I want you to go back and read it again. If you’re hungry – eat! But eat the right stuff. ) Get lots of sleep Everyone tries to make the most of their weekend or day off, but remember that they are there for you to relax. Make sure you are getting enough rest as you are far more likely to crave sugar and miss your workout if you are tired. You need at least six to eight hours of sleep night. Add a nap over the weekend if you have a stressful lifestyle. ) Be accountable It’s much harder to load up on treats at your monthly shop if you know

you’ll have to tell someone about it the next day. Start a chat group with a few girlfriends or commit to telling your partner when you eat unhealthily or skip your workout for more than two days. If you’d like to be a bit more removed from the person, book a few sessions with a life coach. ) Take your vitamins There is a definite correlation between lacking vitamins and trying to replace them by eating more food. Extra vitamins in winter will have the added benefit of fighting off colds and ensuring a healthy skin. Find a nutritionist in your area to make sure you’re taking the right vitamins for your lifestyle. Of course, the best thing would be to do all these things on a consistent basis. If change scares you, try making just one change and only add another when you’ve got that one waxed. For further information on how to keep the weight off your waistline this winter, e-mail emma@graspp.co.za and I’ll send you some more information on the GRASPP weight loss programme.

Young people thrilled to share their stories with President Obama KIM CLOETE

Three young people who have been involved in HIV testing at the Desmond Tutu TB Centre (DTTC) at the Stellenbosch Uni-

versity (SU) are still brimming with excitement after meeting President Barack Obama in Masiphumelele, near Noordhoek in Cape Town, recently.

The trio were part of a group of people who met Obama during a gathering of organisations working in the field of HIV and Aids. They were given a few minutes each to tell their personal story to him. Still fresh from their meeting, the three said their family and friends had been amazed that they had met president Obama. They had to keep it top-secret until after the visit. HIV counsellor, Lindiwe Mvandaba, said she had told the president about her work in TB and HIV counselling and testing and about her passion to help reduce the HIV transmission rate. “He seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say about our work in helping to bring down the rate of HIV in communities.” Mvandaba, who told Obama that she was HIV-positive, works at the DTTC’s Community’s HIV Prevention (COMAPP) project, which sets up caravans or tents near busy streets, at taxi ranks and train stations across five communities in

Cape Town, and brings testing and counselling services to the people. “I told him that the project has made such a difference. Many more people are coming forward to be tested for HIV. It’s so encouraging. I love my work as I can empower other people to empower themselves,” said Mvandaba. Engineering students at the College of Cape Town, Noxolo Ngqono and Neon Mapasure, who told Obama about their experience of being tested for HIV, TB and diabetes at the mobile testing centre in Nyanga, said it was a “dream” to meet the US President. While thrilled to meet Obama, the trio was also excited to meet Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, the patron of the SU Desmond Tutu TB Centre, who spoke about the value of ubuntu at the event and warmly welcomed the president. Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaeledi, told president Obama that the HIV infection rate had dropped and that far more South Africans were now on antiretroviral treatment.

A blessed Ramadaan to all our Muslim readers Our Muslim readers are preparing for the holy month of Ramadaan. Starting on 9 July, Ramadaan marks a month-long period of abstinence. Ramadaan will continue for 30 days until Wednesday 7 August. Ramadaan is the ninth month on the Islamic calendar and is a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God

and practice self-sacrifice. Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. Fasting in the month of Ramadaan is one of the five pillars of Islam and the month is spent by Muslims fasting from dawn to sunset. Fasting is often thought to figuratively burn away all sins.

Ramadaan for non-Muslims Can non-Muslims participate in the Ramadaan? NonMuslims are free to participate in Ramadaan. Many non-Muslims fast and even pray with their Muslim friends or family members. Non-Muslims are often invited to attend prayer and iftar dinners. Those wishing to be polite to someone who is fasting for Ramadaan, may greet them with Ramadaan Mubarak or Ramadaan Kareem, which mean “Have a Blessed or Generous Ramadaan”.

Muslims also believe that this is the month that the Qur’an was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. The first day of the next month is spent in celebrations and is observed as the “Festival of Breaking Fast” or Eid ul-Fitr. The staff of Eikestad Media (Gazette and Eikestadnuus) wish all our Muslim readers a blessed Ramadaan Mubarak.

Die Cape Whalers Field Band in Stellenbosch gedurende ’n oefensessie onlangs.

Field Band speel in Oos-Londen “Oos-Londen, hier kom ons!” Só sê ’n opgewonde Belinda Jackson, programkoördineerder van die Cape Whalers Field Band jeugontwikkelingsprogram, wat reeds talle jongmense in Cloetesville die afgelope 16 jaar positief beïnvloed het.

Die Field Band Foundation is ’n niewinsgewende organisasie

wat aan jongmense geleenthede bied vir die ontwikkeling van lewensvaardighede deur middel van musiek en dans. Die Cape Whalers het pas teruggekeer van ’n opwindende kamp by die Chrysalis Akademie in Tokai, waar die hoofdoel was om spanbou te bevorder en ander lewensvaardighede uit te bou. Nie eens ’n trop bobbejane kon die Field Bandlede verhoed om hul goeie samewerking ter voorbereiding van die kompetisie in Oos-Londen te gee nie.

Belinda en die lede spreek hul opregte dank uit teenoor die Stellenboschmunisipaliteit vir die borgskap en wyksraadslid Valerie Fernandez vir haar volgehoue ondersteuning.

Tips for painless tax season The tax season is with us again, with filing for the 2013 tax year set from 1 July and ending on 22 November. This tax year covers 1 March 2012 to 28 February 2013. Here are a few tips to help you get through tax filing time with as little stress and heartache as possible: ) Get started now or as soon as possible Filing an income tax can be a surprising amount of work. It’s best to get an early start so that you can submit your return before the rush starts. If you are due a refund, the sooner you file, the sooner you’ll get your money. And if you have underestimated your tax contribution, you may be able to save substantially on penalties and interest payable if you submit early. Don’t wait until the absolute deadline to file since SARS offices can be very busy at this time and the eFiling service has been known to fold under deadline demand. ) Use eFiling The SARS eFiling service is convenient, secure and easy to use. It saves you time and hassle of messing around with a paperbased return and standing in a long queue. You can file seven days a week, 24 hours per day with no problem. If you use eFiling you have until 22 November to submit your return. If you file manually by post or SARS drop box, you must file by 27 September. If you are new to eFiling, register now and spend some time learning how it works. That way, your eFiling profile will be ready when filing season starts and you’ll know what to do. ) Make sure you have all your supporting documents ready

Gather all your supporting documentation so that you have it on hand to file and can produce it if SARS asks for it in an audit. Supporting documents may include: · Your IRP5 tax certificate from your employer · An income tax certificate from your medical aid scheme · A list and the receipts of medical expenses not covered by your medical aid scheme · A tax certificate for your contributions towards a retirement annuity fund · A detailed logbook specifying your business trips and travel costs for the period ) Be 100% honest It is illegal to lie on your return by inflating your expenses or not declaring your correct income. Since the inception of eFiling there has been a substantial increase in random audits performed by SARS, accompanied by severe penalties for false declarations on tax returns. The penalties, interest and stress of saving a bit on your tax bill are simply not the risk since your chance of getting caught out is bigger than ever. ) Not sure of something? Ask a tax professional SARS has tried to make life easy for the tax payer by simplifying the paperwork and process of paying tax, but tax affairs can still be complicated. Rather contact the SARS call centre on 0800 00 7277 (0800 00 SARS) or a tax expert to ensure you do your return correctly the first time than risk getting something wrong. A professional tax consultant can help you to identify legal ways to reduce the amount of tax that you pay each year. – Legal & Tax: visit www.legalandtax.co.za, call 0860 LTS LTS (587 587) or e-mail info@legalandtax.co.za.

Culture of savings needs a mind shift July is National Savings month in South Africa, but it is worrying that many South Africans save very little, or nothing at all. “South Africans have a bad track record of saving which puts them at great risk should anything unexpected happen, such as losing a job, this also means that there is nothing put away for retirement one day,” says Eunice Sibiya, head of Consumer Education at FNB. Sibiya suggests that South Africans need a mind-shift away from a culture of spending and debt, to one of responsibility and savings. “The key to saving is having financial plans and goals, you are the only one with control over your own finances. “You need to know what your short, medium and long term financial goals are. And you can work these out by drawing up a budget and sticking to it.” A short-term goal is one that comes up in the next couple of months up to two years, such as buying a pair of shoes, furniture or planning a holiday. A medium term goal is one which needs more consideration and a longer period to save, such as deposit on a house, car or saving for your children’s education. A long term goal is the most important, such as your future re-

tirement and you need to ensure you are putting away sufficient amount of money so that you are able to retire comfortably at an older age. “It is not about the salary that is earned every month, but how that money is used to better your financial position.” Budgeting is essential for dayto-day living. However, budgeting is just as important for saving. Sibiya says that one should budget to save, in other words, include a portion of your salary every month as an item on your budget to put away, rather than waiting until the end of the month to see what is left over. Importantly, savings need to be placed in a savings vehicle, such as a bank account where it is safe and earns interest. There are many good savings vehicles in South Africa such as saving accounts which can be individual or group or investment accounts like fixed deposit, money market, unit trust, government bonds and shares. Another way to save money is to watch your monthly spending habits and identify areas where you can cut down. You can also try not to buy non-essential and unplanned items such as expensive shoes or dinners.

Kainos golf day

On 30 August the Kainos Foundation (for ten­ nis) will have a golf day at De Zalze Golf Estate to raise funds for the foundation. The Kainos Foundation was established to de­ velop and help young tennis players to achieve their dreams. Due to the limited opportunities available in South Africa and the high costs involved, it is ex­ tremely important for the foundation to do every­ thing in its power to provide funding for South African tennis. Part of the vision of Kainos is to develop and expand tennis in all areas in the country and also to give as many children as possible the opportunity to play the game and achieve their full potential.
