BANISH THOSE Winter Blues By Alison Runham www.alison.runham.co.uk

Often, we can cope with the start of winter. It may be dark, cold and wet, it’s full of celebrations to lift our spirits, seeing us through until the New Year and its ‘fresh start’.

A few weeks later, there’s little to look forward to, the days are still dark, and we’re dragging ourselves out of bed to face a day that’s done by dinner time. As for winter 2020-21—it’s in a different league!

So, whether you’re suffering from a little winter blues or full-blown SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), here are some tips to help you survive the winter.

Let There Be Light!

Take Vitamin D

Stay Warm

Lack of sunlight increases melatonin levels (making you sleepy and lethargic) and reduces serotonin levels (affecting mood and appetite), while playing havoc with your ‘body clock’, so try to spend time outside. A sunrise clock, which is designed to bring your body out of sleep gently by emitting a gradually increasing light, might help.

In a UK winter, we don’t get enough Feeling cold can make it hard to hours of sunlight to make sufficient concentrate and stay motivated, Vitamin D, so the NHS recommends so layer up those clothes and heat taking 10mcg (400 IU) of vitamin D your home adequately. If you work daily between October and from home, consider early March (and points heading to a warm library out this is particularly or cosy café instead to You’ll also important this year, get some human find Vitamin D with most of us interaction as well in oily fish such as spending more time (pandemic allowing, salmon - see our indoors). obviously!). teriyaki recipe on page 13 for ideas!

Eat and Drink Healthily

Warm, stodgy food and extra tea and coffee seem tempting when we’re chilly and low. But resist when you can! Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables of different colours and choose lighter puddings. Great winter warmers include fruit teas, orange juice with cinnamon, honey and lemon, and malted drinks (beware versions loaded with fat and sugar). If you drink copious cups of tea and coffee, make at least some decaff!

Health

Socialise (safely!) There’s scientific proof that the company of others, particularly if laughing and hugging is involved, is great for our wellbeing, but that’s been lacking this winter. So, socialise in person when you can (abiding by social distancing rules), and when you can’t, pick up the phone or head to Skype or Zoom to catch up with friends and family. A quick chat can make all the difference.

Exercise Exercise warms you up, increases immunity and alertness, and makes you feel good too! Bundle yourself up for walks and find an indoor activity you enjoy, such as an exercise or dance DVD/online class/video game.

When you’re not just blue, but SAD Over 2 million people in the UK suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which is at its worst from December to February. It can cause depression, or mood swings between depression and hyper-energy. Sometimes stress or trauma can be a trigger, and it’s most prevalent in 18-30-year-olds. If you’re a sufferer, follow our winter blues tips and: • Try a therapeutic light box, which produces light at least ten times as intense as daylight. Rent one first to see if it helps you. • See your GP, who may suggest counselling, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) or, sometimes, antidepressants or a course of light therapy.

ions Realistic Resolut W YE AR NE FOR A HA PP IER , HE ALTHIER

By Alison Runham www.alison.runham.co.uk

New Year Resolutions sound like a great idea: fresh year, fresh start! So why do they fail so often?

SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR FAILURE That left-over festive feelgood and New Year enthusiasm can entice us into making a multitude of overly ambitious resolutions. The result? We fail and often give up completely on our goals. So let’s turn three popular, doomed-to-failure aspirations into realistic resolutions.

MORE EXERCISE

LESS ALCOHOL Your Resolution: “I won’t drink on weekdays/at home/EVER AGAIN!” Recent research shows that even alcohol intake under the recommended limits of 2-3 units daily/14 units per week increases your risk of many serious conditions, including dementia and some cancers. But reducing your intake can be tough if you’re a regular drinker.

Try setting limits: on alternate nights, swap wine with dinner or beer with friends for low-alcohol or non-alcoholic versions, or save alcohol for a weekend treat. When you’re out, match every alcoholic drink with a soft drink, and at home, find other ways to relax. Feeling you ‘need’ a drink at the end of the day is a warning sign that that alcohol might be a habit—and/or that you need to reduce stress in your work or home life.

You probably didn’t manage to do any of these things every week last year. Ask yourself why. Was getting yourself to the gym in publicly acceptable gym wear usually just too much effort?

It’s probably quicker to list conditions not aggravated or caused by smoking than to list those that are, and accepting you’re addicted to nicotine can be hard. But cigarettes don’t actually ‘calm your nerves’. That twitchiness that’s relieved by having a cigarette is nicotine withdrawal, which occurs very quickly. This can make smoking hard to kick, particularly for heavy or long-term smokers. While a few successfully go ‘cold turkey’, gradually reducing your nicotine intake is more reliable and angst-free.

Better resolutions: Visit your GP. They can prescribe nicotine replacement products, and refer you to counselling if you wish. You can also buy nicotine replacement products; experiment and see what works best. Other helpful strategies include: • Making yourself smoke outside if you don’t already (it takes effort and separates smoking from relaxing). Toxins from your cigarette linger in the air (second-hand smoke) and on surfaces to be re-released (third-hand smoke), so you’ll be improving the health of your household and visitors too. • Smoke to a timed schedule, gradually increasing the time between cigarettes. Even a 25-a-day smoker dropping just one daily cigarette per fortnight will be a non-smoker in under a year.

A better resolution: I’ll do at least an hour’s exercise every week.

• Try e-cigarettes or vaporisers but be aware they have risks of their own (and still contain nicotine).

Identify activities you enjoy and be realistic about what fits into your routine and when. Weather too bad for walking? Do your exercise DVD instead. Anything else is a bonus. Better to do some exercise consistently than none.

www.myhandyguide.co.uk

Your Resolution: “I smoked 30 a day, but I’m quitting at New Year!”

A better resolution: Think about when, where and why you drink, and reduce your intake gradually.

Your Resolution: I’ll go to the gym, do my dance DVD and walk two miles every week!

QUITTING SMOKING

‘Resolution’ has an array of scientific and historical meanings, including ‘reduction to a simpler form’. So, keep your resolutions simple—and realistic!

MAKING A CLEAN SWEEP OF THE Bathroom Men are losing their fear of their mothers-in-law and care more about what a potential partner thinks of them, a new survey has discovered. Around 30% of men tidy and scrub the bathroom to impress a future girlfriend but only 11% roll the red carpet out when faced with an impending visit by their mother-in-law. Tellingly, just 13% of women aren't that fussed what a new boyfriend thinks of their bathroom - and are nearly twice as likely to tidy up for friends. When it comes to embarrassing products and features to hide away from visitors, items relating to female personal hygiene top the list of shame. A total of 57% of Brits stow away personal female preparations from visitors' prying eyes and over a third of men carry out a clean sweep on their partner's behalf before guests arrive. Relationship expert Jenni Trent Hughes says: "It's interesting to see that mothers-in-law no longer have the same fear factor that they used to. "In former decades when you married you tended to become part of your new spouse's family which meant that their mother became your mother as well. Now a woman's role in society in particular has changed and we are much more independent and in charge of our own lives. "Another interesting development in society is what we now refer to as 'framilies' which is an extended and diverse group of friends which we surround ourselves with, often in place of our real families. "Because of this you will often find that impressing our friends can take precedence over impressing our families."

Home The survey of 2,000 adults by Mira Showers also uncovered some of the more unusual items found in the nation's bathrooms. A pyramid of used toilet rolls, motorcycle handlebars used as a wall hanging, a sack of potatoes, as well as live snakes, dead frogs and a prosthetic thumb were just a few of the oddities spotted by the survey participants. But what Brits really want to see in a desirable modern bathroom is minimal clutter while women feel at home with co-ordinated towels and bathmats. Trent Hughes continues: "For many women the bathroom is an Aladdin's cave of secrets. Everything from makeup, lotions, potions, to even more personal products - our secrets are there. "We need them to hand but we certainly don't want them on display for all to see! And while Modern Man may now be persuaded to pick up feminine items for us at the chemist they still don't want them in full view for all their mates to see. "The fact that women want to see co-ordinated towels and bathmats is a natural reflection of a world where we want our undergarments to match and our eyeshadow to co-ordinate with our nail varnish. Most women thrive

on order. We want things to be neat, tidy and visually coordinated. "One school of thought is that we are that way because we tend to have many more things to keep track of and the more co-ordinated and ordered things are, the easier it is for us to maintain control." The research also highlighted that 18-24 year olds are far more concerned with brands, with many hiding own-label bath and shower products before visitors came round, and a further 25% going as far as buying in luxury brands to impress their guests. Mira Showers' Roger Crabb adds: "The bathroom is most definitely one of the most important rooms in the house. It is one that, when decorated and fitted stylishly, can add thousands of pounds on the property of your house, so at Mira we weren't surprised to find out that nearly half of Brits make a split judgement on someone based on their bathroom decor and cleanliness. "It doesn't seem too hard to impress judgemental Brits either, as long as there are no live snakes or hair in the plughole then homeowners should be ok!"

A Feast in Lockdown

By Zena Leech-Calton Cookery Tutor & Food Writer www.lovenorwichfood.co.uk

I

t’s been a rough year but through the darkness some new restaurants have risen, like Oishii Street Kitchen based in Chambers cocktail bar offering a mix of Asian inspired fried chicken, sandwiches and rice boxes, with the tastiest miso topped salted caramel brownie.

Then, two top Norfolk chefs Andy Rudd (left) and Roger Hickman renovated The Chick Inn at Micawbers on Pottergate – opening up a comfy local pub with rotisserie chicken and fries along with homemade sides.

Dressing • 1 fresh lime, juiced • 2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil • 1 tbsp light soya sauce • 1 small bunch coriander leaf, chopped • Seasoning The Salad • 2 tbsp flaked almonds, lightly toasted • 2 tbsp sultanas • 1 cos or 2 baby gem lettuce, washed and chunky chopped • 8-9 radishes, sliced

Photo courtesy of Newman Associates PR

I’m sure we are still trying to lose that lockdown weight, only made worse from Christmas, so here are a few healthy(ish) recipes to get you in the feel good mood.

www.myhandyguide.co.uk

Serves 3 - 4

Marinade • 2 chicken breasts, skinned and cut into strips • 1/2 tsp each of ground cumin, coriander and turmeric • 1 clove garlic, crushed • 1 fresh red chilli, finely diced • 1/2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil

And even in a lockdown we had expansions, the Sicily Market boys opened Sicily Trattoria down Bridewell Alley, Cuppie Hut moved to a larger stall on the market and Christophe’s Crepes took over the old Tofurei, while they went bigger down St Gregory’s Alley.

12

Spiced Chicken Salad

editor@myhandyguide.co.uk

Toss the chicken in all the spices and oil and leave to marinate for 30 minutes. Heat a frying pan or wok and stir-fry the chicken (no oil needed) until cooked, approx. 5-6 minutes. Cool slightly while you make the dressing. Simply stir all the ingredients for the dressing together. Toss the chicken and the salad ingredients in the dressing, season to taste and serve.

@MyHandyGuide


Teriyaki Fish and Mooli Salad

Fish

Try salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring or monkfish.

Serves 2

Mooli, Carrot, Cucumber and Sesame Seed Salad Ingredients • 1/4 small mooli • 1 medium carrot • 1/4 cucumber • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (white or black) • 1/2 fresh lime – juice • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar • pinch salt Shred or finely strip the vegetables (use a mandolin if you have one) and simply toss in the lime, vinegar, sesame seeds and salt. Mooli is also known as a white radish or Daikon in Japanese cuisine, it’s like a giant white carrot with a fresh slightly spiced radish flavour. It’s great in stir-fry recipes and pickles really well, too.

Tip

If shredding or finely stripping your vegetables is too much of a task, simply grate.

Teriyaki Fish Ingredients • 2 fresh fish steaks (see above) • Sesame oil to fry Teriyaki sauce and marinade • 1 generous tbsp dark soy sauce • 1 generous tbsp sake wine or dry wine • 1 generous tbsp mirin or sherry • 2 twists pepper • Small pinch salt Mix the teriyaki sauce ingredients together, use half to marinade the fish – 20 minutes should do it, reserve the rest for a dip. Heat a frying pan or char-grill with the tiniest splash of sesame oil, and fry each side for 2-3 minutes until just under cooked. Serve on the dressed mooli salad with the remaining dip.

Driving Safely with Your Dog by Alison Runham www.alison.runham.co.uk

If your dog is generally calm and well-behaved, perhaps you pop them on the back seat (or even the front) without much thought. But this can be dangerous for you, your dog and any other passengers and potentially land you in court.

THE DANGER FACTORS Open Windows However calm Rover is normally, in an emergency, adrenaline can make him unpredictable. There’s no guarantee he won’t jump out, potentially causing another accident or being hit by a passing vehicle. And while your dog may love putting their head out of the window, this can damage their eyes and even cause blindness if debris enters their eye.

Velocity In a crash or emergency stop, even the tiniest of dogs can become a projectile weapon that can cause a fatality. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), an unrestrained 10-pound dog in a crash at only 30 mph exerts around 300 pounds of pressure, and an unrestrained 80-pound dog, approximately 2,400 pounds of pressure. The force with which they can smack into the windscreen—or the back of a head—has the potential to kill you, them, or a passenger.

Distraction We’re good at convincing ourselves we’re distraction-proof, or that brief distractions don’t matter. But according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, looking away from the road for just two seconds doubles your risk of a crash. Even if your dog is on the back seat, seeing them jump up in your mirror can still divert your attention from the road.

Airbag Your dog should never travel in the front of your car, not just because of their potential to distract you or interfere physically with your driving, but also because dogs have been killed, even when in a crate, by airbag deployment. Don’t take the risk.

@MyHandyGuide


Pets

THE LEGAL FACTOR Contrary to popular belief, in the UK, it hasn’t become illegal to have an unrestrained pet in your car. However, Highway Code Rule 57 states that animals should be “suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly.” Breaking the Highway Code isn’t an offence in itself, but the police point out that “failure to comply with such sections of the Highway Code may still be used in evidence in any court proceedings under the Traffic Acts to establish liability.”

One of the most common charges is ‘careless and inconsiderate driving’. An on-the-spot fixed penalty notice gives you a £100 fine and three points on your licence in ‘low harm’ cases, but more serious incidents can lead to court appearances, an unlimited fine, up to 9 points on your licence and even disqualification from driving.

Restrain Your Dog—For Their Sake and Yours Research by Volvo Car USA and The Harris Poll revealed that unrestrained pets more than double incidences of unsafe driving behaviours and distracted periods, and that it increases dog and driver stress. So, whether you choose a crate or harness, do restrain your dog and position them safely in the car—for everyone’s sake.

And if a road accident is caused by an unrestrained dog, your insurance may be invalidated.
