Celebrating Multiculturalism Enjoying our diverse city


t’s Saturday morning and I can’t decide what to have for breakfast. Spoiled for choice, I’m sitting at the Kuraby markets, surrounded by an enticing and fragrant array of food stalls, all offering delicious looking morsels from around the globe. Will it be Hungarian Lagos, Indian Street food, or Transylvanian cheese? I decide on a garlic Lagos, and sit back and enjoy the flavours while being entertained by a reggae singer from Jamaica. Therein lies the essence of multicultural Brisbane – we don’t have to leave home to experience, enjoy and appreciate the diversity of other cultures. According to a spokesperson from Multicultural Affairs Queensland, cultural diversity is “an invaluable asset for our city’s future”, developing local communities and creating opportunities. “The benefits of our cultural diversity are great, including the vibrancy of our communities, our differences of perspective and our rich cultural traditions. Migrants and refugees bring great traditions and diversity of ideas, skills and

perspectives. They are filling skills gaps and labour shortages and keeping our industries strong, as well as expanding our links to overseas markets and supporting international trade and tourism”.

History of diversity Australia has been a multicultural society since before recorded history. Even before white settlers arrived, Aboriginal society was extremely diverse. After federation, exclusive immigration policies were enforced, to maintain a British outpost. Proceeding the Second World War, immigrants were strongly encouraged to integrate, and leave their own cultures behind. In the late 1970’s, the term “multiculturalism” was first used to encompass the changing policies which encouraged the expression of diversity.

Statistics tell the story In Brisbane today, over 25 percent of residents were born overseas, and around 17 per cent speak a language other than English. In Kuraby alone, whilst 54.1 percent of people speak English as their first language, the remainder are fluent in Mandarin, Arabic, Cantonese, Hindi and Urdu, the official language of six Indian states. Coupled with the Muslim mosque and Buddhist temple in a nearby suburb, it is little wonder that Kuraby has morphed from a predominantly farming

community to one of Brisbane’s more culturally diverse suburbs. In the neighbouring suburbs of Sunnybank, Calamvale, Runcorn, and Sunnybank Hills, 1 in 2 residents were born overseas, hailing predominantly from China, Taiwan, New Zealand, India, Vietnam, Korea and Greece. It is estimated that in Queensland there are over 300 languages spoken, and that the state is home to people from more than 220 countries with more than 100 different religious affiliations.

Brisbane does Multiculturalism well Compared to other countries in the world, it appears that Brisbane is a city where cultures mix with relative harmony. Some say it is because Brisbane is a city which was built on migrants and the integration of new cultures has happened gradually over a long period of time, allowing for a learned acceptance. Others believe it is due to our intrinsic Aussie belief in “a fair go” for all and an acceptance that migrants do not wish to change Australian values, but are here because of them. Abdi from Somalia has a story that is typical. He lived in a refugee camp for five years before arriving in Australia. Abdi ad his family now live in the suburb of Kuraby, and his children attend the local school. Through a translator, Abdi describes the positive experience that Harmony Day celebrations at his children’s school provided for his family. “My children dressed in traditional Somalian clothes. They shared with their teachers some of

our culture and our beliefs. This helped them to feel accepted and that they have something to offer, something that is interesting to the other children in their class”.


Brisbane celebrates In Brisbane there are a wealth of multicultural celebrations on offer. So far this year we have celebrated the Buddha Birthday festival in April, the Cinco de Mayo celebration of Mexican culture and Paniyiri, which celebrated the Greek culture in May. Most recently. The Walk in Our Shoes Youth Festival, organised by Youth Voice Brisbane was held at Yeronga. The event celebrated the diversity and talents of young people living in Brisbane, providing them with an opportunity to learn about the experience of refugees and migrants in their age group. Multicultural Affairs Queensland believes these events are valuable, not just for entertainment purposes. “These events are about recognising and appreciating the many cultures and many people who make Queensland a fantastic place to live”. UPCOMING EVENTS: Le Festival: 8-10 July, Cultural Forecourt, South Bank Korean Festival Day: 12 Aug, King George Square Quandamooka Festival: July, Aug and Sep in Brisbane, Redlands and Moreton Bay Naadam Festival for Mongolian Community: 9 July, Whites Hills Reserve Park, Carina Heights Oktoberfest: 7-9, 14-16 Oct Brisbane Showgrounds, Bowen Hills Brisbane Latin Dance Festival: 1-4 Dec, Brisbane

FASHION with Carly Vidal-Wallace

French Flair


fter living in Paris for many years and in different regional areas around France I am often asked about the quintessential French style and “what this means”. With recent ithh the rece ent addition to the political team in France, a gracefully racefully stylish first lady, we are once again drawn to t aall ll things French, especially in the month of July uly where the national Bastille day is celebratedd (in case you need an excuse to dress up, drink French wine and snack on cheese). So, what is French style? It is class without effort and style without extravagance, without forgetting just a general nonchalancee to follow trends, and an inner confidence too be one’s self. For those that find that tricky, here are some me of my top picks to capture your inner French nch flair.

A touch of scarf… I love the way French women style a scarf not only around their neck, but tied to the strap on a hand bag or tied neatly around the head. If you don’t have some beautiful scarves in your wardrobe especially coming into Winter you need to go shopping! Fav pick of the season (above):

4 | Junly 2017

More is more… Forget the skimpy skirts or the lowcut tops, the French woman is about showing off your feminie curves without overdoing it, a fine mix of class without disclosing too much. Loving the Tengdahl dress which shows the right amount of shoulder and yet doesn’t hide your figure outline.

Some practical glam shoes… We all love heels, but with all those cobbled streets in Paris a stylish lady also needs some practical glamour. glamou Repetto long known for beautiful ba bballet all l et fl flats also have a variety of small too m medium ediu iuum heels. he Loving this patent number.

Petite and pretty… Jewellery like everything in fashion is not over the top or ostentatious, take a look at the stunning Les Nereides collection online for some precious pieces.

It’s all about the bag… Having a beautiful investment bag that you keep for many years is not unheard of, many women will cherish moments they remember receiving or saving to buy their favourite handbag. Christian Louboutin is generally known for his shoes, but wow this bag is perfect.

Dressing French is a state of mind, it is a silent confidence, and class without being over the top of bragging about brands, we all have a little oh la la hiding in us!

FOOD with Gabbi Johnston

RETIREMENT LIVING with Chiou See Anderson

Tech vision comes to life for retirees



t’s incredible to imagine a fridge that checks your diet or clothing that monitors your health and shares the information with your doctor but, in the not too distant future, household objects will be using the internet to connect and communicate with each other, enabling an entirely new ondemand service industry for Australians young and old. At Elements, our vision is to harness technology so that all our residents can live better lives, as well as longer. Which is why we have decided to take the plunge with an exciting, Australian-first innovation. Over the coming weeks we’re introducing a village-wide iPad system, connecting every resident and the village administration through digital communication. Each resident will receive a new Apple iPad that has been pre-programmed with a range of features to make life easier. For example, if you need repairs or gardening or a home alteration, it can be requested via the iPad. Want to book Elements’ communal BBQ or pamper room? Use the real-time booking system on the iPad. Need the instructions for your

oven or washing machine? The manuals and warranty information are all on the iPad. The iPads will be useful for accessing policy and procedure documents and FAQs about village life but, most importantly, they will be a boon to the residents’ social life. Village newsletters and meeting minutes will all be stored in the cloud and accessed on the iPad, along with the Residents Directory and birthday calendars. We’ll set up chat rooms for each social group at Elements, so that the members can coordinate their activities on a private online platform. And on-site security will get a boost, as residents can use their iPad to tap into our security cameras and view visitors at the village gate before remotely opening the gates through their home phone. Imagine connecting with your doctor for a realtime online health check from the comfort of your own bedroom. Or sending a video with your home maintenance request to show the tradesperson exactly what the problem is. So much is possible with digital communication!

Elements has been at the forefront of retirement village technology for the past decade. In fact, the village was founded on a $500,000 private, next generation fibre optic network, which means residents pay up to a third less than normal for their internet connection. The aim is to future-proof the village with one fibre optic network to run all services – phone, intercom, broadband, television, security cameras, electronic gates – and an endless capacity to support new innovations, such as holograms and augmented reality. This technology is a substantial investment but is already bringing enormous benefits for Elements’ residents health and wellbeing. Indeed, technology is transforming the whole concept of retirement through an array of gadgets and services that can support remaining social, living at home, staying healthy and arranging care. Older Australians are among the most technologically connected seniors in the world.

COME ALONG TO ONE OF OUR UPCOMING EVENTS! Chicken and Champagne: Sat 1st July Happy Hour: Fri 14th July They’re using the internet for all sorts of reasons - to connect with family and friends, run their businesses, book holidays, manage their money and explore new past-times. We are excited to bring the future to life at Elements. Elements Retirement Living @ Springwood Ph. 07 3299 3775 224 Dennis Rd, Springwood QLD 4127

Land of the long white cloud


had never been to New Zealand despite it only being a three-hour flight from Brisbane. I had heard and seen so much about the country that I felt it was time to see for myself if it lived up to the hype. With six days only to explore, I flew into Queenstown with the plan to stay there for a couple of days then make my way up to Christchurch where I was to fly out at the end of my journey. Flying into Queenstown was amazing as you look down at the spectacular barren jaggered mountain ranges with little caps of snow on the peaks. Queenstown was smaller than I expected but beautifully located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and flanked by The Remarkables and Coronet Peak. One of the things I miss most when it comes to living on the Gold Coast is the clear-cut change in seasons. New Zealand certainly catered to this as it was autumn when I went and WOW did the colours showcase themselves. One of the most colourful | Junly 2017

places just outside of Queenstown had to be Arrowtown, an historic gold mining precinct. The gold may be gone but the hillsides and water ways were laden with trees flecked with gold, orange and red leaves, the town itself is a little quirky and the nearby Chinese settlement worth a look. On one of my mornings in Queenstown I braved the cold winds to drive up to Coronet Peak which is a popular ski field just west of Arrowtown to catch the sunrise. As the sun rose the mountains

HOLIDAY ESCAPES with Vicki Smith

began to gleam with golden light and the valleys slowly came to life making me feel quite small amongst the vast beauty. Many of the towns in the South Island of New Zealand seems to be near water ways or astounding gorges. Cromwell is no exception as it lies on the shores of Lake Dunstan, again it was once a gold mining town however it is now home to a flushing stone fruit mecca and wineries. I took a day to explore the heritage precinct, wander through the boutique shops and sample a few delicious wines before heading back to Queenstown to take in the city lights around the lake. New Zealand is a photographer’s paradise, food and wine connoisseurs and trekkers delight, there is something for everyone. I haven’t been able to tell you all of my adventures yet so stayed tuned for another episode. Vicki Smith @mrs_vicstar

Women in Business


unning a business is tough, it takes leadership, knowledge and skills, determination and most of all hard work - but if you’re passionate enough, it can all be done and with great success. We spoke to some of the South Side’s most successful business women, to not only get their take on running a business, but how it all started for them. If you look back just twenty years ago (1990 - 1995), the number of women in business or even in employment was staggeringly low, with most women aged 25-34 staying at home to raise children and women aged 35+ only working casually or part-time – according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The number of women in business and in the workforce only began to skyrocket from 2000 onwards and it has been climbing ever since.

The idea around women in business and in the workforce in general, has come a long way. Today, it’s normal for a dad to stay at home with their child while their mum works, just as it’s normal for women to focus on a career before having children. These days, many businesses and large organisations are run or owned by women and the female presence in ‘male-dominated’ industries is growing. Times, they are a changing and it’s great! South City Bulletin take pride in supporting our local women in business and recognising their incredible efforts throughout the year! Our Editor, Resa Zekants is a young female with her own business, so she understands the hard work and dedication that goes in! We hope you enjoy the inspiring stories of our local women in business!

Deborah Anapo Business Manager

Simply Beans Boutique Coffee Roasters Southpark Complex B6, 10-14 Compton Road Underwood QLD 4119 P: 07 3208 2900

ittle did Deborah realise that a one small sentence to her husband “You are the best Coffee Roaster I know! Roast your own” would set them on a path towards a Multi awarding winning Boutique Coffee Roasting business, the creation of exceptional hand crafted roasted coffees, a buzzy on site Espresso Bar and selected wholesale clients up and down the East Coast of Australia. Her husband Giuseppe had decided to get out of Hospitality industry after 40 years but could not let go of his passion for coffee, as a passive income he decided to purchase a couple of coffee vending machines and was looking for a supplier of beans. The rest as we say is history as are the vending machines. Deborah with her life time of Administration and hospitality knowledge, maintained all the administrative and accounting needs of the budding business whilst holding down a full time position in Quality Assurance and Workplace Health and Safety. In 2013 as the business moved to its current location on Compton Road Underwood, the workload increased to the point that Deborah took on the position of Business Manager full time. Starting a business from nothing has certainly had its ups and downs with massive learning curves along the way. Deborah says that Simply Beans greatest asset is their amazing staff and believes that letting go of the reins a bit, taking the time to mentor, train and above all encourage their staff in their strengths has seen the business grow both in sales and reputation .

isters, Cynamon and Amber Norris are the Directors and Owners of St Coco Cafe. They opened the café in Daisy Hill last year, offering exclusive coffee blends and hearty creative meals to delighted locals. Since then, the café has grown in popularity seeing people from far and wide pop in for a coffee and a bite to eat. The sisters’ love for coffee originated five years ago, when they bought a hole-in-the-wall café called Hallowed Grounds Espresso in Mt Gravatt. After a few years the girls decided they wanted to move on and offer a full café experience. Using their expertise and knowledge in hospitality and customer service, the girls drew up plans for a quirky Californian-style café with a focus on speciality coffee – from there, St Coco Café slowly came to life. When creating the name, the girls wanted the cafe to have a focus on high-end coffee with creative food to match, the ‘St’ was inspired by their Hallowed Grounds venture and Coco was used as it’s a sister trade bean of coffee. St Coco Café boasts specialty coffees with exclusive blends roasted just for the cafe. They also have a range of coffee beans from all over the world including Kenya, Ethiopia, Brazil and Colombia on offer. The café’s menu is seasonal, featuring a range healthy breakfast dishes, lunch options and treats made from local and organic produce. Visit St Coco Café today and see first-hand just how much love the girls have put in to their newest venture!

I Lisa Smith Director

Sun Stop Blinds 3/54 Compton Road, Underwood P: 07 3299 3055

started my working life as an Admin Assistant in 1984 (age 16) for the Department of Health and Safety. In 1986, I was part of a national first, participating in an office traineeship with Moreton Shire Council (now merged with Ipswich City). Here, I learnt vital skills in running an office at QLD TAFE and applying the lessons on the job in Council’s Rates and Health Departments. In 1988, I started working for a local Logan Blind Company and was trained in sales, customer service and accounting procedures. Then in 1993, I teamed up with my husband to start our own blind manufacturing company. We specialise in custom made blinds such as verticals, venetians, rollers and panel glides. We provide an in-home measure and quote, assisting in the colour selection and offering helpful advice in the selection of products for each window and it’s specific requirements. I think that the key to our success is that people enjoy the experience of dealing with a small family business, because we follow the process from the point of sale, up to the installation. We take pride in the work we produce and our friendly customer service. I really enjoy being a part of the entire process - from sales and colour consulting, sourcing materials, administration and assisting occasionally with the installations and production. It gives me pleasure to see a happy customer enjoy their new blinds and the difference a carefully selected custom made blind makes to the look of the room.

G Libi Coyer Founder and Director

South East Region Learning College Head Office: 161 Herses Road, Eagleby QLD 4207 P: 07 33829222

rowing up with a supportive family has given me the freedom to develop a creative side that focuses on thinking ‘outside the box’. This creativity, plus study in Human Resource, Administration, Psychology and Education, created the perfect combination to focus my passion on students who have disengaged from schooling. After being a Deputy Principal in several schools, I moved in 2010 to what was then called, Eagleby Learning Centre, and began the journey of creating the South East Region Learning College. Our students face numerous challenges in their lives and often education is not a priority as they battle other obstacles for survival. As a result, the college recognises the incredible journey our students have when they achieve despite the odds. In 2016 we had 2 campuses with over 600 amazing students achieving a 98% pass rate. Now in 2017 we have opened our 3rd campus with a goal of 800 students passing their Year 10, 11 and 12. Our “Success STARTS here…” vision has created a school with the flexibility to reduce barriers and offer programs designed for each student. We’ve created a place where they can continue with their schooling and graduate with success, confidence and the right tools to move on to the next phase of their journey. Why do we work? – We treat students as individuals, We focus on passing as failing means doing it again and finally it’s not enough to have a Goal – you have to have the Guts to Go for it!

O Gail Ker OAM CEO

Access Group International Limited 92 Wembley Road, Logan Central, QLD 4114 P: 07 3412 8222

ver the past 20 years, Gail Ker OAM’s commitment and deep passion to empower disadvantaged people and champion social inclusion has changed countless lives for the better and tangibly fostered a culture of inclusion and opportunity in the multicultural city of Logan and beyond. Gail has been recognised with a number of prestigious awards and board appointments including the 2015 Australian Human Resources Institute “CEO Diversity Champion Award”; Paul Harris Fellow – Rotary Foundation of Rotary International; and the Order of Australia Medal. Gail started her association with Access as a mentor of single mothers who wanted to re-enter the workforce through Logan Job Care. With a strong sense of social responsibility and an intrinsic passion to reduce poverty, discrimination, violence and the abuse of human and women’s rights in society, Gail embarked on her mission to create social, cultural and economic experiences and opportunities that could transform the lives of individuals within her community. Under her leadership, Access has grown from a one room youth employment service in Logan City into one of the largest multicultural organisation in Queensland. With the mantra “Every person counts,” Gail has led, and continues to lead her contingent of over 300 staff in pursuit their organisational goals, and is today at the helm of one of Australia’s leading organisations in the provision of settlement, employment, training, youth support, housing and social enterprise services for migrants, refugees and Australian born clients. Her programs have set new national standards, and many people who pass through her programs become leaders in their area of work and within their community.

was so fortunate to be called to the premier profession of teaching from a very early age when I was raised in a small country town by my grandparents. The good old-fashioned values by which I was raised helped me realise that teaching is not a job, it’s a vocation; whereby our true moral purpose is to prepare our students for a dynamic, ever-changing world. Despite the fast-paced technological world in which we live, it is important to realise that the most important technology in our schools today is, and will continue to be, the classroom teacher. Not just any teacher, but teachers who have a love of learning; who love children; who have an appreciation of their different learning styles and who understand that our role fundamentally is one of building relationships and keeping each child’s candle burning in this world of increasing personal disengagement. My journey in the educational industry took me to all levels of the bureaucracy but what I didn’t realise was that each promotion took me further and further away from children, hence my decision to leave Education Queensland and set up Sheldon College - a school I hoped would leave a legacy for children in the Redland Shire. I am thankful that every day, along with my colleagues, we have the opportunity to touch the hearts, minds and souls of literally hundreds of children. How well we do that role can only be measured years after the school bell has ceased to ring.

he desire to be at home and spend as much time with my young son before he went off to school, along with working in the profession that I love -Accounting and Taxation - I took the risk of quitting my high paying managerial role with a Brisbane City Accounting Practice and decided to start my own practice. It was a risk, I had no clients and I had no idea how to get myself known. I took out a weekly advertisement in a local paper and at the start of the tax season did a letter box drop offering to do tax returns for $50. In the first year, which was in June 1998, I prepared 50 tax returns. That was the start of my journey in business and I have never looked back. I love working for myself and more importantly I enjoy empowering staff and clients to educate themselves and take charge of their futures. I learned early on in business, only I am responsible for my results and my success. My passion for customer service, along with aligning the values of my team with the values of myself and my business have been paramount to the continued growth of the practice. I believe in life, work, and business we will always be rewarded in direct proportion to the value of our contributions to others. This focus on outward contribution to our customers, staff and community is central to the core my business.

Business Builders Group Inspires Southside Business Owners


usiness Builders Group (BBG) is much more than a run-of-the-mill “Networking” or “Referral Marketing” group. It is a “Collaboration”. One that helps SME owners and leaders to develop and grow their businesses. Each BBG Chapter of 20 - 30 non-competing members meets once a month at a breakfast forum; where they network, mastermind, learn and cooperatively overcome business challenges in a way that helps them get to know, like and trust one another.

“Collaborate and Grow” Run by professional facilitators and supported by best-of-breed referral tools and training resources. From the first Forum you attend, you will walk away with new skills and knowledge to help you grow your business. Then, over time, (as the other members get to know like and trust you), the collaborations will begin to flourish and the referrals will begin to flow. Launched just 12 months ago to fill the gap between the networking groups that cater for micro

businesses and tradies and the CEO Groups that cater for the big end of town, BBG is quickly becoming the Business-Group-Of-Choice for busy professionals and small business owners who and are looking to take their business “to the next level”.

New Southside Chapter Offers Great Opportunities Acknowledging the rapid growth of the Sytsma Southside Chapter, Michelle Sytsma of Sytsma & Associates said “I have been working with small business owners now for over 20 years. The very core values of my business have been built on the foundations of trust and building strong relationships. From the moment I saw the BBG process in action I knew that the BBG group was exactly what small business needed in order to be able to strategically execute solid long term business growth for the future. After only 2 months the results are already proving me right, with Sytsma and Associates collaborating with leaders in key industries, learning and acquiring valuable knowledge to be able to share and pass on to our clients and associates.

Interactive Home Assistants

Paris Can Wait


ast month Apple held its annual WorldWide Developer Conference to showcase its latest line of products. Most notable of these is a new device called the HomePod, a small standalone speaker with a built-in microphone and loaded with Siri, Apple’s interactive virtual assistant. This is Apple’s first foray into a relatively new technology market that’s growing in popularity: the interactive home assistant. These devices are primarily designed as a way of interacting with your phone, computer and the internet through voice recognition technology. They are typically made to be used in the home or office and the idea is that you can quickly and easily complete tasks using only your voice; whether that be setting an alarm, changing the radio station, messaging a friend or looking something up on the internet. A number of these devices currently already exist on the market: Google has the Google Home ($215AUD) and Amazon has the Echo ($185AUD), however these particular devices are | Junly 2017

primarily marketed in the US and aren’t really promoted over here in Australia. How useful one of these Home Assistant devices will be for you is determined by your lifestyle and how much you rely on your phone or computer for day-to-day use. If you keep a daily schedule of appointments on your phone or if you need to check the traffic/weather before you leave for work in the morning, a hands-free device that can communicate this information to you verbally could be a huge time saver. On the other hand, being able to quickly set a timer or be reminded of an upcoming event through a simple verbal interaction also has its benefits. For more information on smart home devices and for a quick comparison between the devices listed above, head to

PARIS CAN WAIT takes the audience on a charming and romantic road trip befitting of any “foodie” from the Cote d’Azur to Paris: a trip once experienced by its writer and director, Eleanor Coppola (wife of film legend Francis Ford Coppola). Diane Lane plays Anne, an American woman who embarks on a road trip with a French business associate, (Arnaud Viard) of her Hollywood producer husband, played by Alec Baldwin. What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a journey of discovery involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humour, wisdom, and much more. The film has everything you might expect from a road trip across the French countryside: beautiful vistas, historic villages, food, wine, flirtation and romance. It’s one film you can’t miss! Paris Can Wait will open in Australian cinemas on July 20. We have 10 admit two in-season passes to giveaway. For your chance to win, enter via our WIN page at

HEALTH & FITNESS with Cameron Corish

Is women’s fitness training different from men’s?


n an era where women and men are equal, a common fitness and strength training mistake is that both are trained in exactly the same way. Even though we are equal, our bodies are different and as a result we do need different fitness training considerations. According to one of the world’s leading strength and conditioning coaches, Paul Chek, some of the key differences are: • Joint structures are smaller. • A wider pelvis, such as with women, means a greater Q angle (the angle from the hips to the knee). This acute angle at the knee has been attributed to women having higher cases of non-contact ACL injuries. Ask any netball player! This predominately results from greater medial rotational instability of the lower extremities.


• Women are more energy efficient. Australian researcher Robbie Parker proved that women use approximately 40% less energy than men when walking the same distance. | Junly 2017

Paul recommends the following considerations for women’s fitness training: 1. Flexibility first – Restore flexibility to muscles that may have more restricted joint mobility. 2. Stability – Strengthen stability, especially in the hips and core due to the higher Q angle, the most important being the strength of the transversus abdominis muscle. 3. Pelvic floor – Exercising of the pelvic floor on a regular basis is critical for women due to higher instances of incontinence, estimated at 47% according to Nygaard et al. 4. Core function – Childbearing, caesarean section or hysterectomy can lead to core function dysfunction. 5. Power – Men and women are not the same strength even when they are of the same training age. Soft tissue and strength adaptions are often slower and as a result should not be on the same strength protocols of a man’s training program. Women, choose something simple like increased repetition’s range.

6. Machine weight exercises – Reduce these exercises as they do not develop the smaller stabiliser and postural muscles 7. Strength training concerns – A large number of women will avoid strength training because they are concerned that they will get large and unattractive muscles. If anything, it is strongly recommended because the naturally higher levels of estrogen and lower levels of the muscle building hormone testosterone mean that women will lose muscle quicker.

Men and women have different physiology. So yes, women’s fitness training needs to have different considerations from a man’s. So we hope these 7 tips help your fitness training. We are equal but not the same. Core Health Coaching


Work / Life Balance Why it’s important and how to get it


chieving a balance between the time we spend at work and at play is particularly challenging, especially in an era when technology oers us the opportunity to be contactable every moment of the day and night. The saying “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boyâ€? isn’t far wrong. Without balance, our performance suffers and our stress levels increase. Research conducted by Stanford University indicates that if an employee works over 50 hours per week, their productivity takes a dive, and putting in anything over 55 hours each week becomes counter-productive. Absenteeism and employee turnover increases, along with dissatisfaction. Award winning, Confidence and Life Coach Lisa Phillips believes that how well people can maintain a good balance comes down to their personal values. “An individual who has high values relating to family and fun will often find it much easier to obtain a good balance between work, rest and play. However, if an individual has a value structure which has ambition, career and achievement at the top of their value list, they may find it more difficult to achieve that work life balance as these values have become the main priority in their livesâ€?. In her book, The Confidence Coach: Take Control of your Life and Wellbeing, Lisa

Secondary Education Programs explains that the first step towards achieving work/life balance is to take action. Rather than pointing the finger at circumstances, or becoming the victim, we need to take control and channel our angst into positive ways to improve our lives. In the 21st century, the greatest way to take control of our work/life balance is to unplug. According to Robert Brooks, a professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, “There are times when you should just shut your phone off and enjoy the moment. Make quality time true quality time.� Brooks believes that not reacting to updates from work as they happen will increase your resilience, which will in turn give you a sense of power over how you manage your time, thereby lowering your stress levels.
