EDITION 5 - AUGUST 2013
NEW EXCITING VENUE FOR
DNAGAYSKIWEEK QUEENSTOWN’S BIGGEST DANCE PARTY The 2013 DNA Gay Ski Week QT final dance party is set to be bigger and better than ever thanks to a new venue jsut announced.
full of fun. Mr Gay New Zealand Chris Olwage will be in Queenstown for the week, helping guarantee fun, frivolity and laughter.
The finale of this year’s week-long celebration, the GAYDAR Mystery Dance Party, will now be held at Queenstown’s newest live music venue, Vinyl Underground.
“GAY SKI WEEK QT IS FIRMLY ESTABLISHED AS A ‘MUST DO’ ON THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL GAY AND LESBIAN CALENDAR AND WE’RE ALWAYS LOOKING TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND BETTER THAN THE YEAR BEFORE,” MRS WHITEWOODS SAID.
Located on Church Street in the former Subculture venue, organisers have announced that this year’s party will have a ‘Heaven and Hell’ dress-up theme. The last night dance party is always one of the most popular on the calendar and is usually held at Queenstown’s iconic World Bar. Organisers Sally and Mandy Whitewoods were forced to find an alternative venue when the World Bar tragically burnt down in May this year. “It’s sad to have to find an alternative venue as the World Bar was so well loved, but the simple fact is that the new home for the World Bar simply can’t cope with the numbers we need,” Mrs Whitewoods said. “We’ve been searching for the perfect venue for the last few weeks, one that can hold the amount of people we know will attend as well as one that has just the right atmosphere. Vinyl Underground isn’t even open yet, so it’ll be great to celebrate the end of a fantastic week of fun at Queenstown’s hottest new live music venue.” Vinyl Underground plans to open to the general public in August and will have a focus on offering live music, hosting an array of local, national and hopefully international acts. Known as the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Winter Pride event, hundreds of gay men and women converge on Queenstown between August 31 and September 7 for a week-long celebration of skiing, socialising and evenings
The programme starts with a bang at the More FM Opening Party at Barmuda on Saturday August 31 and follows up with other highlights such as ‘Get it on! Bingay’ sponsored by the New Zealand Aids Foundation, a take on traditional Bingo with a glamorous host and fabulous prizes up for grabs, and the infamous Karaoke night at SKYCITY Casino with Miss Ribena. The More FM Gay on The Bay is also back – a competition giving all local businesses the chance to ‘pimp up’ their store or staff to be in the running to win $1,000-worth of radio advertising. Limited table seats are still available for the opening night of the cabaret-style show “La Cage Aux Folles”. This event promises to be a highlight of the week and people are encouraged to bring their best frocks for a night of show business and glamour. The Broken Shed Casino Royale evening is a ‘smart dress’ event or one where participants are encouraged to dress up in their favourite Bond outfit to stand out from the crowd. The evening starts as it means to go on with a complimentary drink on arrival, before guests are whisked away up the Skyline Gondola for dinner and live entertainment from local band LA Social.
The penultimate night is the ‘Queens on the Lake’ party held aboard the TSS Earnslaw, Queenstown’s iconic Lady of the Lake steamship which will be moored at Steamer Wharf for the evening. “Tickets are selling fast for this event and it’s shaping up to be an amazing night with music from DJ Haylenise from Melbourne on one floor and a cocktail bar on the other,” said Mrs Whitewoods. She said ticket sales for all events were already “significantly higher” than in previous years and reminded people to buy tickets early to avoid disappointment. “We’ll have a limited number of last minute door tickets available for key events, at higher prices than prepurchased ones, but we encourage people to buy now to ensure they get to enjoy the events they want to,” said Mrs Whitewoods. “The legalisation of same sex marriage in New Zealand has successfully turned the focus on the gay and lesbian community in a positive way and we’ve definitely seen an increased interest since the bill passed. We’re excited as we know there are some people planning on getting married during DNA Gay Ski Week QT and we can’t wait to be a part of it.” For the first time ever, Sally and Mandy are raising funds for charity, donating six per cent of the accommodation revenue from bookings at Novotel Queenstown to the New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF). “We thoroughly enjoy organising the event and bringing the gay and lesbian community together. We encourage anyone attending this year’s event to book their accommodation at the Novotel to support this amazing charity,” said Sally.

AUGUST EDITION PAGE 4
a traveller’s perspective by belinda fraser
Travel destinations are especially exciting when your horizons have been eclipsed by the Pacific Ocean for over a decade. I packed the necessary clothing I believed would be appropriate and sufficient for the 15 day excursion to Morocco. I wasn’t far wrong with my long blue overdress covering the black leggings, long sleeved shirts and undergarments and the warm protective shawl. I didn’t want to appear ethnic, simply respectful and comfortable within my own fashion style. My earlier plans of travelling to Morocco had been at least 30 years ago when I lived in southern Spain. Irrespective of my confidence, intuitiveness and curiosity back then, I decided that crossing the Mediterranean, to the northern shores of Africa, on my own, was perhaps not a sensible choice. A young, blonde, enthusiastic 20 year old doesn’t go unnoticed. My very formative travel packing stretched across years of expeditions to Northern India and the vast Himalaya. April 2013 and the 11 kilograms of luggage felt “just right”. The plans, the
small group we had booked a tour with, the reading and the knowledge about where we were going were sound. The enthusiasm was unrehearsed. It was exciting to be on the plane and venturing, shortly after our arrival, in and around Casablanca. We walked along bustling inner-city roadways, over the modern tramlines towards a narrow archway. This took us in to the old medina. Here we were amongst the throb and push of jostling market dwellers, wandering along cobbled lanes, past neat piles of donkey dung, calling artisans and pushy trade’s people. I certainly realised my “western ness” but was nonetheless enchanted by the colours, the differences and the richly woven fabric that was this ancient society. It didn’t take long for the experienced trader to seduce us in to ‘great uncles’ carpet den. I knew this was just the beginning so after the first cup of mint tea and a huge unfolding show of camel runners and Moroccan rugs we politely made a dash for the door promising to return. Our hotel was tucked in a back street. It had a hilarious small boxed-in lift that could fit only one person and one case with a crank handle to make it go. The novelty appealed to
me as did the cramped room with an old grand piano alongside the dark wooden dining room. In here there were tables offering bowls of olives, freshly baked bread and hard boiled eggs. The very obvious clusters of men only, drinking tea at café tables or standing together in close groups were a far cry from the café scene in our down town western suburbs. The towns and cities offered a striking contrast of mosques, solid and protective walled medinas, souks and Kasbahs and the ever increasing housing scenes of a growing population. The women were predominately in long robes, head scarves of brighter colours carrying shopping baskets bursting with vegetables and possibly a recently plucked chook. In some places men and woman had come from the outer areas for their weekly food purchases. It was colourful, relaxed and comfortable to meander our way through. I could never resist the opportunity to buy another bag of almonds, fresh dates, figs or a sweet juicy orange. I munched my way through quite a few. Our breakfasts were perfect. Bowls of green and black olives, sliced Lebanese
cucumbers, sweet red tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, yoghurt, dripping runny honey, freshly baked bagels and strong black coffee or stewed tea. Morocco is a living museum with life flowing through every corner and alleyway of the old medinas and sprawling cities. The loaded donkeys, the unfinished street kerbs, the brilliance of colour of bedspreads and rugs or the simplicity of an overloaded wagon, or vegetable stand kept reminding me of the timelessness of old customs. Each new place always featured a tapestry of city gates, ramparts and mosques. The fortifications around the Kasbahs were evidence of a culture that had guarded and fought with ever invading tribes. Historically Morocco was a mixed culture of Arabic and Berber people which were shaped by their Moslem culture and diversity of land. This geography includes the Atlantic coast, Sahara desert and Atlas Mountains. The Roman influence from 200BC, the arrival of Islam in the 7th century, the French colonisation and the dynasties of Moroccan leaders all weave an intricate and ancient textile of life here.
www.franktonflyer.co.nz except that I was tethered to the one ahead and behind me. The intrinsic beauty of the Sahara in the late afternoon sun was outstanding. The night’s camping destination was fun. Our tents were comfortably cushioned with rugs and mattresses. Dinner was served around a blazing wood fire. The camel drivers served our wine and the drumming began. Dancing barefoot on Saharan sand was magic, romantic and soft on my soles!
Rabat appeared organised and flowing. It’s the capital city. Meknes was an impressive city that stood proud and strong with its thick rampart walls and more lavish architecture. We stayed in a great place across the river that overlooked the old city. A welcome early morning swim in the hotel pool and orange trees laden with fresh fruit made the early rise a welcome solitary start. We continued in our very accommodating minivan along the highway to Volubilis. We had a great driver who travelled at a comfortable speed to get us to each new place safely. We walked around the extensive roman ruins that overlooked the agricultural plains. These areas are an important productive area today. The land here is fertile and produces many
purchase that will always remind of this day, pay what you know is fair. Walk, listen absorb it all. Have a prune and lamb tagine, drink bottled water. Many of the hotels and homes have intricate tiled riads. These are traditional courtyards that also have a fountain of water in the centre surrounded by flowers, tiled walls and greenery. They make a great welcome to your stay and there is always a feeling of quiet and peacefulness away from the storm of life outside. As we travelled across the arid, mid atlas landscape it gave time for reflecting on the simplicity of life we could still see. There are obvious signs of local people supporting the needy or physically disabled townsfolk and antiquated methods that still dominate
We wound our way along steep canyons and arid hills to get to the Dades Valley. The roads were narrow and curved a path around steep canyon cliffs. We drove to the Todres River Valley lucky to watch the harvest of the roses that this valley is famous for. They are petite, perfect and pink and smell oh so sweet. It was pleasant and fertile because of the river with many small dams that have been built to control the flow of water, protecting the growth of local crops such as barley, tomatoes, apricots, dates and figs. Women were washing bedding at the river’s edge and we could watch them dunk, slap, kneed, rinse, twist and then hang it out to dry on a nearby bush. Children were shy but curious. Cameras were an unwanted invasion and I was happy to keep the memory if it all in my heart. The pathways and buildings were worn but robust. They were all dry and made from the red and brown clay that makes up much of Morocco. Little rainfall comes to these parts. Morocco’s colours are vibrant because the contrasts of the textiles are displayed against the walkways or village walls. It is fascinating to see and walk through these villages. The outside faces of the buildings are plain and bare and the inner cities are protected by ancient walls. Sudden contrasts of a green valley appear amid a landscape of desert.
The landscapes are often dry and arid with colourful tagines displayed for the hungry traveller. There are many bright mounds of spices and vegetables displayed for the shopper in the markets within all inner medinas. Old Kasbahs, that once protected the habitants of the place it commanded, stand strategically overlooking the surrounding areas. Mosques stand straight and tall calling the faithful to prayer.
olive groves as well as wheat, barley and beans. Loaded donkeys and small clusters of livestock, predominately tended by local boys, are dotted around the countryside. Fes is the oldest of the Moroccan cities. It had the first University in the world dating back to 780 AD. The historic centre of Fes took my breath away. It is a thriving, pulsating maze of buildings, ancient heritage sites, narrow alleyways, artisans, agricultural produce, meats and life oozing from every area of the old medina. Here we were today, 21st century and it probably wasn’t a lot different 500 years ago. Except the Sky dishes linking their way from ancient sites to the new. Don’t miss going there. Watch the men steeped in pungent leather dyes, weave your way through narrow paths that run maze like through this ancient place. Look at the old trinkets and doorways, choose carefully your beheaded goat for dinner, check prices or the freshness before you weigh the figs, almonds or spices, order mint tea, buy a colourful scarf. Ignore the persistent trader and the next one too.
the farming industry. We journeyed westwards across the Mid-Atlas Plains which have a varied landscape. On the eastern side it receives minimal rainfall and has sparse vegetation. Heading west there are more arable areas covered in cedar, cork, pine and oak trees. The High Atlas makes up the highest mountain range in North Africa. The area is isolated but home to the Berber people where their culture and identity prospered. To be able to see mountains in the distance, see a face of snow and to look over green riverbed valleys was uplifting. It was fun being part of a small group tour. The earlier times of pioneering independent travel were now coloured with mixed impressions and sharing it with others. We laughed, looked at things from differing perspectives and we had a great Berber guide who made connecting with the locals easier. At the southern edge of the High Atlas we came to an area where the desert and mountains meet. The Sahara rolled timelessly away with her smooth sand hills and romantic valleys. It was all the

cry “I make good price” are all part of it. Getting away in to the quieter mountain areas was a relief and provided another look and understanding of the country. I would have loved Morocco 30 years ago but sharing it with a great group of travellers and a personal Berber guide gave the trip new dimensions and an easy ambience that was created between the
locals and us. The contrasts and images are still strong and brilliant in my mind. It is unique. It is a country that has a tapestry of life embedded within the call of the muezzin, influenced by the King that reigns, the desert and mountains or agricultural fields that govern a way of life. It is a country that needs more industry to keep it moving forwards. It has a people bridging the area between northern Africa and Europe under a maze of life that makes this place so memorable to visit and explore. Many images come to mind as I think about Morocco. The tagines, the rugs, the scarves, the people, the way of life, Northern Africa, the aridness, the clothing but essentially it is this. I was humbled by the simplicity of life, broadened once again by how different life is in other cultures. When you are willing to be part of that simplicity, to explore some parts of an ancient culture and appreciate old customs that our lives lack, then go. I can recommend sharing it with other travel friends, a small group tour and a mountain Berber guide. Trek some trails and be enriched some more.

FROM START TO FINISH...
This was the hardest thing I’ve ever put my mind and body though. Our sweet success is Megan from Body Sanctum.. She was Frankton’s very own winner of the Thriller in the Chiller... We started off with a qualifying weekend to whittle 75 people down to 50. From there it was five weeks of hell in a boot camp with 50 people vying for a spot of 20. For five weeks, we had up to four trainers screaming like banshees at us for 90 minutes a day at 6.00am four days a week. We were put through a rigorous training regime of fitness, strength and boxing drills. If anyone messed up or was late the innocent were punished while the guilty party watched on with us biting to get back at them during the sparring sessions. What I wasn’t ready for was the physiological turmoil they put us through just to see if we would break emotionally, they didn’t want anyone to be weak in any sense of the word. After the five weeks 20 were chosen it didn’t get any easier. In fact it was much worse, the expectation level rose. The trainers had put their necks on the line by choosing us and we were not to disappoint. You go through good days and bad days. One day you’d feel like a champ walking out of there with your head held high, other days I had a chip on my shoulder big enough to feed a small village. As the days grew nearer to the fight I started turning into a nervous wreck. It wasn’t the fight so much, it was being in front of 1500 screaming people. I spoke to a friend about the night, how we had to get dressed up in our dresses to walk out in front of the crowd then dash back stage to get in our gear for the fight, to which she replied, “Wow, it’s just like the Hunger
Games.” And it sort of was, except no one died. When the fight night finally came (which really did sneak up quite quickly) my fight was third last, I was unbelievably anxious. While I was getting ready in the changing room my fellow boxers were coming back in from their fights bloodied, beaten and winded. At this point my anxiety level was palpable.
The next thing I knew I was in the ring watching the ref inspect my gloves. I met my opponent in the middle to touch gloves before our fight started, she met me with a smile, which I returned. She told me later that the smile was supposed to be intimidating, and was confused to why it didn’t work.
When the bell rung I walked out and was greeted with a quick stiff jab square in my face, which the crowd loved. There were three, two minute rounds with 1 minute rests between them. Each of those rounds were the longest two minutes of my life. I could hear my corner men screaming at me to keep my guard up, my mind was screaming at my limbs to listen. And then just like that it was over. I won by unanimous decision by one point, just by the skin of my teeth. From day one when I found out that Sarah was my opponent we always said all we wanted was a good looking fight, a proper boxing match. And that’s what we did. I was so proud for the both of us for getting in there and giving 100%. We may have walked out of there with sore faces and fat lips but we both walked out winners in my eyes. I would love to help out with anything to do with it next year. This was the single most amazing experience of my life. I loved every minute of it and was pretty depressed when it was all over. Each and everyone of the trainers pushed all of us to our limits and did an absolutely amazing job. I never thought throughout these months that I’d make such great friends, I’d recommend this experience to anyone.

5 tricks were judged, and the winner needed to claim 3 out of 5 of those tricks. The two contenders threw down some heavy tricks through the terrain park in true slopestyle-like fashion. From rail grinds to backflips off jumps, Pengi and Frosty clearly weren’t holding back! But, after an extremely close battle, the birthday boy claimed victory. Frosty admitted defeat and even allowed Pengi to spray him with snow after the battle. What a good sport!

After a week full of anticipation, hundreds of eager guests were in attendance for Sunday’s celebration. Balloons, stilt walkers, hoola hoopers and more decorated the festive courtyard.

FOODIE IN FRANKTON This month itâ€™s all about the vegetarians. With recipe like these who needs meat!
Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries Ingredients Makes approximately 9 puffs, depending on size of squares and how thin dough is rolled 1 large sheet puffed pastry, thawed 1 ripe avocado, halved and mashed (approximately 1 tablespoon of avocado per pastry square) 1/3 cup cream cheese (approximately 1 teaspoon of cream cheese per pastry square) 1/3 cup salsa (approximately 1 teaspoon of salsa per pastry square) salt and pepper, sprinkled to taste 1 egg, beaten
Instructions Preheat oven to 200Â°C and prepare two baking sheets with either parchment paper, Silpat liners, or spray them well with cooking spray. Thaw one large square of puffed pastry for about 10 minutes. Flour your countertop or work surface and roll out the pastry square as thinly as possible. With a pizza cutter or knife, slice the puffed pastry into approximately 2-inch by 2-inch squares. From the one thinly rolled large sheet of frozen puffed pastry, approximately 18 squares can be made. On half the squares, place a dollop of avocado, then cream cheese, then salsa, season with salt and pepper. Use the remaining squares as the lids and place one lid over the filling mounds. Seal the pastry packages by pressing the edges with a fork, taking care to seal the edges well, pressing the fork in repeatedly, so no filling escapes during baking. In a small bowl, beat an egg with a fork, and apply an eggwash to each of the pastry packages. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until desired browning and puffing has occurred. Watch them closely after 10 minutes in case your oven is hotter or your brand of puffed pastry cooks faster. Remove from the oven and serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and if desired, reheat leftovers in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds before serving. Or, store extras in an airtight container on the countertop for a day or so, using common sense because of the cream cheese filling, and reheating in the microwave if desired. To serve, top each pudding with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

EGGS Many people focus too much on what not to eat, but research now consistently recommends that there is something important to eat - protein.. highquality protein, in particular. Allnatural, high-quality protein, like the type found in eggs, provides active kids and adults sustained energy for their busy days. One of the easiest ways to get highquality protein is to include an egg a day into your balanced eating plan. Jackie Newgent

THE LED’S BIO LED stands for – Light Emitting Diodes, technology that was first harnessed by NASA. LED light therapy is a painless and even relaxing way to plump the collagen in your face, neck and décolletage. It works in the same way as our red light therapy system but at a deeper level making the treatment work much faster. Our LED prescription facials have 4 different light settings. Red light increases blood flow increasing collagen synthesis and wound healing to firm and tone the skin and reduce pore size. The yellow light decreases inflammation and increases hydration. The green light improves rosacea and redness and targets hyperpigmentaion to help regenerate the skin. And the blue light helps eliminate the bacteria that causes acne, and slows the sebaceous activity. Three blue light treatments are proven to eliminate 99.99% of acne bacteria that the light reaches. Your therapist will choose the best light combination depending on your skin’s needs. This treatment includes a skin consult, cleanse, exfoliation and application of O Cosmedic products before you leave.

BEAUTY SECRETS WITH BODY SANCTUM JADE’S TIPS • If you have problematic skin, remember to change your pillow slip and clean your makeup brushes at least once a week. • Always use your ring finger when applying products around the eye area. • Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips so your lippy glides on effortlessly. • Men opt for a shave oil rather than foam, less irritation. • Don’t pick your spots! If you are guilty of squeezing spots so hard that they bleed, you could be damaging the skin which might lead to scar tissue for life. Jade says: “Whether it’s cold or warm outside, I never leave the house without my lip balm! Keep them protected, hydrated and looking totally irrestible!”
JADE’S BIO Originally from the east of England, Jade left the UK for her travels back in 2010. After a brief stopover in Queenstown, she had fallen in love with everything it had to offer. So the following year she returned! Jade has been working with Body Sanctum since November 2011 and has loved every minute of it. Trained back in the UK, qualifying with her advanced NVQ Level 3 Beauty Therapy and Make Up and since then has had great opportunities to do further education and ongoing training within the industry. Qualified in IPL and other advanced treatments, she is your go to skin guru! Jade has had great opportunities in the past to work with celebrities as their personal make-up artist, and recently with New Zealand’s sports personality, Hayley Holt for ‘Me Magazine’. She has a great passion and excitement about the ever evolving beauty industry and hopes this is just the start of a long and successful career.
TOP PRODUCT FOR PROBLEMATIC SKIN O COSMEDIC’S MINERAL PRO (comes in a tinted version too!) This is an SPF 30+ clinical triple defence protection. 20% zinc oxide provides broad spectrum protection, preventing skin damage as well as assisting skin healing and reducing inflammation. Use as your everyday/night moisturizer as well as your sunscreen. The ultimate gift of skin youth! $73
MEG’S BIO Originally from Canada, Megan grew up in a cosy little ski town in Rossland, British Columbia, Canada. Since moving to New Zealand in 2010, she has been a part of the Body Sanctum team working in both the Queenstown Day Spa and the Frankton Beauty Lounge. She studied Advanced Remedial Massage Therapy at the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba, and specialises in remedial sports massage. Amongst other achievements, Megan has worked with members of the Canadian Olympic team and members of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, a professional Canadian football team. Megan recently participated in Queenstown’s own Thriller in the Chiller Charity Boxing event and won against her opponent.
THE COLLAGEN FIRMING SKIN REJUVENATING SYSTEM’S BIO Red Light Therapy has been proven to heal wounds, and treat a variety of skin conditions such as; acne, rosacea, scarring and eczema, as well as improve your overall skin quality. Our stand up - full body red light therapy unit is non invasive, pain free and UV free, it is a gentle and effective way to heal and rejuvenate your skin. The heat and light boost circulation, bringing more blood and nutrients to the area, causing collagen producing cells to spring into action. If the skin needs to heal it will; if it’s already healthy you will get a plumping effect from all of the extra collagen being created – light instead of botox with zero downtime! Even if you don’t suffer from spots or other skin ailments the red light will also help treat seasonal depression.
JADE’S FAV PRODUCT PRIORI PERFECTING MINERALS FOUNDATION There are many products on the market that say they will improve your skin, but this is the only one I’ve come across that is broad spectrum SPF 25 UVA 10 powder makeup! You can easily apply it as a sheer cover or layer it for a flawless photo finish look. It will instantly perfect your skin’s appearance, but also treat the skin too! It matches any skin tone effortlessly and it wears all day. $79
MEG’S FAV PRODUCT PURE FIJI EXOTIC OIL Be it winter or summer, I use this daily! Any of the fragrance range is like a little trip to Fiji. It’s blended with 4 nut oils so the skin absorbs it effortlessly, you’re never left feeling greasy. I love to use it as bath oil, nail and cuticle treatment, scalp and hair treatment, massage oil and body oil (apply straight out of the shower before drying for the smoothest results!) It’s also a spray tan/self tanner must have! It will enhance the colour and extend the life of the tan and give a healthy glow to your skin. $46

where it's at
THE REASON YOU'RE ALWAYS TIRED might actually be something you'd never suspect and could easily fix. 1. YOU DON'T EXERCISE It may seem counter intuitive, but exercising produces all kinds of helpful biochemicals that ward off fatigue and help you feel upbeat the rest of the time. Think of it as positive feedback: the more energy you put in, the more you get out.
2. YOU KEEP POOR SLEEP PATTERNS Sleepiness is not the same as fatigue (which is a general lack of energy), but one of the most common causes of feeling tired is simply not sleeping enough. In addition to too little shut-eye, keeping irregular sleeping patterns and even sleeping too much can also make you feel tired. To get back on the right track, try to get into a routine of sleeping at consistent times—while only getting as much sleep as you really need—and you’ll be surprised how much better you will feel.
3. YOU'RE CARRYING EXTRA WEIGHT In addition to making your bones and body bear a greater burden of weight, obesity can result in sleep apnea, which is horribly disruptive to your sleep. According to the Canadian Lung Association, individuals who suffer from sleep apnea can experience pauses in their breathing dozens—or even hundreds—of times in a single night. Sleep apnea can also potentially result in heart problems. If you are concerned about sleep apnea, be sure to speak with your doctor.
4. YOU DON'T EAT BREAKFAST There's a reason that breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, and everyone has told you not to forget it—from your doctor to your mother, to probably every teacher you’ve ever had. And yet so many of us still skip it on a regular basis, or just cram down a few pieces of toast before heading out the door. Take the time to fit in breakfast every morning and it will help you avoid that mid-afternoon crash.
5. YOU DRINK TOO MUCH COFFEE If you rely on caffeine to get through your day, you can develop a dependence—so without it you can go into withdrawl, needing several cups of coffee or tea just to feel "normal." And the worst point of withdrawl? Right in the morning. To make matters worse, caffeine can still course through your system when you’re sleeping if you’ve had any coffee or tea in the evening, which can interfere with normal REM sleep and leave you feeling even more tired. An easy solution is to cut back on the amount of caffeine you consume during the day and steer clear of caffeinated beverages within hours of your bedtime.

By and large, the best things you can do to stay healthy and energized are pretty simple: eat well, sleep regularly, don’t drink too much alcohol (hangovers aside, the by-products in alcohol can make you feel tired), and get some fresh air and exercise.
Fatigue may be their body's way of telling them to slow down. Many people experience fatigue because of overwhelming life stresses. Keep your stress in check: set limits, make time for yourself and the people you love.
