a hormone that tells you when you’re full, so... you’re going to over eat. Yep, once you pop, you can’t stop! Some of you will worry about how much you’ve eaten setting of the same chain of events again! This isn’t the worst of it though Not content with making you demolish the all you can eat buffet or that whole packet of chocolate covered Hob-Nob’s, cortisol is also muscle destroyer! Muscle speeds up your metabolism and burns fat. Therefore it makes sense that the more lean muscle you have the more calories your body burns & the less fat you have right? Well… Cortisol has other ideas… When cortisol is secreted, it actually eats into your muscle! Muscle is 5 times heavier than fat, hence the weight LOSS but fat GAIN Not a good combination!

Does this mean relaxing will make you thinner?

BOOTCAMP

Worrying makes you fat!

“But when I’m stressed I lose weight, what are you on about!?” Correct, you will lose weight, in the form of muscle but you’ll actually gain more fat! Worrying sets off a chain of reactions in the body that commands us to store fat. Your adrenal glands release the hormone cortisol, causing this chain of events to occur: • Hunger increases • Metabolism slows down • You gain weight How? The hormone cortisol really is evil; an increased level of cortisol means you’ll become less sensitive to

YEP! The good news is that relaxing can actually help you lose fat. The body has a system called the parasympathetic system that helps you digest food and increases fat burning. So you switch off the genes that cause you to gain weight and switch on the hormones that help you lose weight. In other words, relaxing is a great fat loss strategy, on top of a good exercise plan and nutritional program of course!

Try these: 1. Stop worrying! Everything is fine and what you’re worrying about probably isn’t a life or death situation, put things into perspective. 2. Chill out a bit more. Take saunas, get a massage, read a good book. 3. Try some stress reducing herbs. Including: Ginseng, Rhodiola, Siberian ginseng, Liquorice 4. Eat more green veg and drink plenty of green tea! Eating green veggies can help control cortisol. Cortisol also makes your body more acidic. Green Vegetables, particularly broccoli, watercress, cabbage and spinach can help you become more alkaline. Therefore the more alkaline you are the less damage cortisol can do.

Worried? Don’t be!

at least a third, not only will this make lifting it easier it will also help the plant if it is carrying less weight. Prepare a hole where you want to move the shrub to, the hole needs to be 1 ½ times the depth and at least twice the circumference of the plants root ball. Fill the hole with water and give the plant to be moved a good soaking to reduce damage to roots.

SOUTHEND GARDNER

How to relocate Your Shrubs

We are often asked if it’s possible to move shrubs once they are established and when the best time to do it is. Our advice is while it is possible to move larger plants and shrubs a little care should be taken to ensure a happy transition for the plant. Autumn and Spring are the best seasons to relocate plants as the ground is warm and damp which encourages new root shoots and helps the plant settle in quickly. Before you disturb the soil prune the shrub back by

Once this is done trench around the shrub at least 12” away from the main stem, very large shrubs will need to be trenched at least 18” away from the main stem using a spade to cut through any straggly roots, then with a fork carefully work your way around the shrub lifting gently to ease the roots away from the soil. You may have to move around the shrub a few times before the plant lifts but time taken at this stage is most important to ensure less root breakage. Now the plant is free from the ground place it in the hole you have already prepared, spread the roots out as much as possible, back fill half of the hole with well rotted compost packing it in nice and tightly around the roots and stem. Water the shrub once again and then back fill the rest of the hole with the soil you dug out. Press firming all around with your heel to compact the soil and eradicate any air pockets that might have been created. Leave the soil banked up slightly around the area you have worked as there will be a certain amount of sinkage once the soil settles. Water 2-3 times a week for a month if we don’t have any good downpours and don’t worry too much is the shrub wilts a little this is quite normal, as long as you got most of the roots out it should pick up.

Happy Gardening!

Town Council Wins Award

Canvey Island Town Council has won a Community Engagement Award. Our Chairman Cllr Doreen Anderson was presented with a certificate and award by the Essex Association of Local Councils (EALC) recently at their official Awards Ceremony. The Award was in recognition of the achievements that the Town Council are responsible for which involve the community on Canvey Island. Cllr Doreen Anderson commented: “I was very proud to receive this award on behalf of Canvey Island Town Council but we could not have achieved this without the very hard work of our staff.”

Canvey Island Town Council is also organising their third annual Christmas Shop Front Competition for businesses on Canvey Island. The Christmas Shop Front competition is free to enter and all that is required is the completion of an application form, returning it with a 6 x 4 photograph of the decorated shop by the closing date of Friday, 6th December. There will be one prize of £100 and the applications will be viewed by the prize giver and the winner announced in the local press in time before Christmas. For further information, please contact the Town Council.
