Happy in Your By Anna Wood

Inner confidence is something that each one of us has struggled with at one or many points in our lives. Anna Wood, founder of the REDO YOU CONFERENCE has dedicated herself to studying this difficult to grasp concept and to helping every woman struggling with this issue. She provides a glimpse into how South African women feel about themselves – and how we can improve it. WHEN GOING TO THE BEACH I usually notice two types of women, the group who are comfortable in their own skin no matter their shape or size and then the ‘cover ups’, who almost covered from head to toe, reveal as little as possible in their quick dash to the water.

WHICH GROUP DO YOU ASSOCIATE WITH?

Have you been struggling with weight loss, achieving your goals or self-confidence? The problem is that we try to remedy the symptom, but never focus on the root of the issue at hand. You need to get rid of that big nasty root that has anchored itself deep within the soil of your mind’s garden. This obtrusive root keeps you from living a life of

value, love and reaching your full potential. As the old proverb goes “your body is a reflection of your mind, change your mind and you will change your body”. To create lasting results on the outside you need to experience true change from the inside. A strong positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life and my belief is that it all starts with accepting and truly loving who you are.

WHAT DOES SELF-IMAGE ACTUALLY MEAN?

DOES YOUR SELF-IMAGE AFFECT YOUR LIFE? Yes, definitely. Having a negative self-image impacts your thoughts, your feelings and in turn, your behaviour. Constantly thinking about how stupid,

SELF-IMAGE EXERCISES THAT WILL HELP YOU REACH YOUR WELLNESS GOALS:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

List 15 things you like about yourself – include appearance, personality and skills. Even if you can only list eight things now, write down the characteristics you wish you had. Read these 15 characteristics out loud to yourself everyday for 90 days. Start weeding your mind of negative thoughts. Your mind is like a fertile garden, whatever seed you sow will grow. What seeds have you been sowing lately? Good or bad seeds? Start becoming mindful of what you are thinking about each day. You will be surprised at how many negative thoughts pop into your mind on a daily basis. Change your focus. Instead of focusing on the negative (within yourself and in others), replace your criticism with encouragement. Give constructive criticism instead of being critical. Compliment yourself and those around you on what you have achieved. What we focus on is what we attract. Focus on the negative and you will get more of the negative, focus on the positive and you will get more positive. Live a life of thanksgiving. Before you go to bed list 10 things that you are thankful for, for that specific day. When was the last time that you looked someone in the eyes and really said thank you to them or gave them a compliment. Blessing others will shift your focus from yourself to other people’s needs. Educate yourself. Read books on self-image or join women’s conferences that assist you like the Redo You Conference or get in touch with Anna to assist you with body and mind coaching sessions to start you on your journey.

ISSUE 8 2015

Your self-image is formed by your past life experiences, good or bad, and the opinions of others. These could be the opinions of our parents, teachers, employers, our life partners and even our children. Think about the following example. Remember your school days? All the fun and laughter, the excitement of new challenges, and the endless possibilities that lay in front of us, ripe for the picking? As kids we never had any doubt of our own limitations, we were superheroes, and our mission? To save the world. All our joy and confidence was short lived the moment words like “you’re stupid” or “ you're a disappointment” or “you will amount to nothing” infiltrated our little minds by people who had no idea of the damage they could cause.

“What makes a woman strong in her mind? The belief that she IS!” This is such a true statement that we underestimate so much. Let’s put it this way: Whatever you

HOW IS YOUR SELFIMAGE FORMED?

HOW ARE WE GOING TO CHANGE THE PICTURE WE HAVE OF OURSELVES?

believe you can do or can’t do; you are right. If you believe you are going to fail, you will, BUT if you believe you are strong and beautiful, you will achieve whatever you set out to do. Our beliefs influence everything in life. The way you see yourself is the way the world will see and treat you as well. You have to believe in yourself and believe that you can achieve anything you put your mind to, even though you don’t see the results or outcomes immediately. It is almost like convincing yourself to believe in goals that aren’t there yet. You have to let yourself believe that if you can dream it, you can become it. And that if you can imagine it, you can achieve it.

www.we-care.co.za

Self-image is the picture you have created about yourself, what you think you look like, and what you perceive others think of you. I love how Google explains self-image: “the idea one has of one's abilities, appearance, and personality.” People might either have an inflated selfimage – believing they are better than others – or more commonly they may be prone to having a negative self-image where they only focus on their flaws and what they don't have.

worthless, or what a failure you are will generate emotions of depression, anger, hurt, guilt and worthlessness. These negative emotions in turn give rise to behaviour such as people pleasing, avoiding people and situations, neglect or self-abuse and intentionally under- or over-achieving in a bid to be accepted by a particular group.

There’s nothing like a home cooked meal flavoured with herbs cut fresh from your garden. You don’t need to cultivate an entire backyard plot to grow enough herbs to use in meals – a simple container on a deck or patio can provide herbs all season, as you need them. Here’s how to create your own herb container garden.

Step by Step 1. CHOOSE YOUR POTS OR A CONTAINER

Select a container with drainage holes, the larger the better. A 45 centimetre diameter faux terra cotta or half whiskey barrel provides enough space to grow a variety of herb plants. If you don’t have a large container, select a number of smaller pots and plant a single herb in each one.

2. ADD YOUR SOIL

Fill the container with bagged potting soil. If you’re using a very large container, fill the bottom with a layer of empty soda cans. The cans will take up volume so you’ll need less soil to fill the pot.

TIPS To add a visual appeal, try growing attractive ornamental versions of culinary herbs, such as purple basil and tricolour sage. If herb plants get overgrown, cut them back severely to force new growth.

www.we-care.co.za

13 Select herbs that you commonly use in cooking, but don’t forget to try a few new ones. It’s easiest to purchase herb plants from a garden or home centre rather than starting with herb seeds and plants will give you instant results. You can usually find basil, cilantro, thyme, oregano, sage, rosemary and parsley at garden centres. Some unusual herbs to try include lemongrass or French tarragon.

4. PLANT YOUR HERB GARDEN

Moisten the soil thoroughly. Arrange the plants so that those that grow tall, such as basil and lemongrass, are in the centre and cascading varieties of herbs, such as thyme and oregano, are along the edge. Plant them close together: 10 herb plants will fit in a half whiskey barrel!

5. USE WATER AND FERTILIZER

Sprinkle a time-release fertilizer in the pot; scratch it into the surface and water well after planting. Water frequently to keep soil evenly moist, but not sopping wet.

6. HARVEST REGULARLY

Once the plants show new growth, you can begin harvesting. Snip off whole stems rather than individual leaves to encourage bushy, new growth. Never take more than one third of a single plant at a time. By following this pattern your plants should supply you with seasonings through the entire growing season.

Stress

Free Are you an athlete with an eight to five job, a family to take care of, and still need to find time in your day to train? If your answer is yes, chances are you’re probably feeling stretched to the limits and guilty about not having enough time for everyone and everything. So how do you find a balance and fit everything in when there just never seems to be enough hours in a day? Here are some helpful hints and tips on how you can reduce your stress levels that will leave you feeling calmer, happier and more positive.

STRESS CAUSES increased cortisol (our ‘stress’ hormone) and adrenalin levels in the brain and body. This can result in ‘tunnelvision’ thought patterns and reactions, and hinders learning and good decisionmaking. Feeling stressed also decreases the production of serotonin (our ‘happy’ hormone), which together with high cortisol levels and depleted adrenal glands can lead to symptoms of burnout. When we are stressed and feel that everything is too much for us, we create negative thought patterns and self-talk. Negative thoughts tend to decrease our self-esteem and make us feel unable to cope or succeed in achieving our goals. Therefore, it is very important to be in tune with your body and mind, and to achieve this, there are a number of factors to be aware of.

SLEEP

Ensure that you sleep enough. Western research shows that we need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night. Athletes, executives and students need more sleep because their bodies and brains work hard every day. To get the most out of your sleep, make sure that your room is dark, there are no noises to disturb you and that the room temperature is not too warm. It is important to switch your cell phone and computer off after 8 pm so that your brain can cycle down and is ready to switch off when it is time for you to go to sleep. Also, make sure that you don’t watch anything very stimulating

or violent on TV before going to bed, as the last pictures, feelings and words we see and experience in the evening are the first that are worked through in our dreams. If a movie disturbs us, we generally will not have a restful and relaxing night’s sleep.

NUTRITION

When we are stressed and feel that we need more energy, we usually tend to look for something that gives us a boost. Sugary and fatty foods give us that boost, but they also spike our blood sugar levels. Highly sugary foods tend to pass quickly through our bloodstream, leaving us with low energy after a short period. When our blood sugar is low, we feel irritated, depleted of energy and tend to develop headaches more easily. Therefore, it is important to eat small, low GI meals regularly to keep our energy levels up and running. This will also help you to work longer, study better and concentrate more.

HYDRATION www.we-care.co.za

Being hydrated is so important. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to work correctly. For example, your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste and lubricate joints. The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%, so it is imperative to replenish our water balance regularly. One way to stay hydrated is to keep a bottle of water with you during the day. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding a slice of lemon or lime.

TIME MANAGEMENT

ISSUE 8 2015

The older we get, the less time we seem to have. All too often, we are involved in too many things that we need to do every day and can’t find the time to finish everything. So what you need to do here is only plan for 60% of the time in your day, as we need the other 40% for the unforeseen. Make a list of what you need to do every day, prioritise those activities, and try to stick to it. It is such an incredible feeling to be able to tick off what you have achieved in the day, thus boosting your selfesteem and ultimately allowing you to feel calmer and more in control.

Revisit your breathing techniques to stay calm and focus on positive thoughts and outcomes every day. We tend to focus on negative events more than on positive events. Be aware of positive things that happen in the course of the day and think about these in the evening. You will be surprised at how many positive things you are able to recall.

KEEP A GOOD BALANCE

Keeping a good balance in life seems to be one of the most difficult things for anyone to achieve. So make sure that you are motivated and that you know what your goals are. Be aware of how much time you spend on everything during the day and/or week, and allocate time accordingly. Get enough sleep, eat and drink healthily and exercise regularly but make sure that you have some fun free time too. Being out of balance often means that we overindulge, self- medicate, get sick more frequently, feel deprived, and can’t stick to our plans. To live a more balanced life, what it all comes down to is being realistic about what you can do in a day. Plan your day, prioritise your activities, and try not to deviate or get side-tracked once you have set out your plan of action.

Article Courtesy of isiGidi Fashion Written by: Natasha Bryant

Brigette Bardot once said that every age can be enchanting, providing you live within it. This is true of fashion trends and the clothes that come in and out of style – and then more importantly, back again. Cycles are common in fashion as designers take inspiration from previous era’s, but while inspiration is drawn from the past, the result is always fun and fresh. The revolution of an era is a personal experience for each person, as memories are drawn from the era before. What memories will you take from this year’s fashion?


There is another gold rush, and clothing is expected to have lots of gold accents. It’s time to hit the dance floor in true 60’s fashion. Find your athletic clothes to be more comfortable? So do designers! They have taken your gym shorts and turned them into everyday wear.

Dolce and Gabbana

Christian Dior

Tommy Hilfiger

Poncho’s and shearling are the must-have items for the upcoming winter season. Shearling made its comeback in cuddly, soft silhouettes with both ethnic and pop vibes. Team these items with faux fur to complete the folk style, comfortable living look. The cape has been named as the outerwear piece of choice for winter. This echoes the fairytale look, and complements the fairytale dresses. This alluring cocoon is a must-have.

Leopard print and bird’s feathers are still creating a roar, and are being hailed as the eternal symbol of femininity and sensuality.

Celine Givenchy

Military and khaki have stepped back in line, showing off rules and rigor of stricter silhouettes and structured looks. Team your military look with a pair of worn-in brown lace up boots for the perfect military uniform.

Fairytale dresses with poetic silhouettes are still trending. These dresses are whimsical, and the detailed embroidery tells a story worthy of a happy ending.

Classic looks are being re-imagined through the three-quarter length coat, which has been cut to a slightly longer length. The overcoat has also taken on a feminine look, with defined waists and elegant touches. Suits are also back in fashion and take on a masculine edge. Following the boyfriend jeans trend, you can take these suits straight out of his closet.

Health

Taking on the challenge of turning your health and lifestyle around is a daunting one. With so many fad diets and health gimmicks out there, it is easy to lose sight of all the elements that come together to create a healthy, fit and calmer you. Luckily all it takes is one small step at a time to better your overall wellness. We rounded up the experts to guide you on the small and manageable steps that you can take. Follow their advice and these small steps could lead to huge strides forward in your health.


health habits

STAYING HEALTHY doesn't have to mean a total overhaul of your lifestyle or drastically changing the way you do things. Sometimes small changes can have big impacts. It is always best to start gradually, small steps at a time, and work those changes into a lifestyle habit. If you make drastic, uncomfortable changes towards a healthier lifestyle, then you're only making it harder for yourself to maintain it. Starting with one step at a time will allow you to comfortably work these changes into an everyday, normal way of life.

THE DIFFERENCE A YEAR CAN MAKE

Even the smallest steps can have a huge effect on your wellbeing over the course of a year. These surprising small lifestyle changes are easy to follow – who knows how much your health and your life will have improved by this time next year!

Next year: You will have eliminated 21,170 calories. That’s enough to drop almost 3kg. Cut more, lose more, of course.

ONE SMALL STEP FOR NUTRITION

Celynn Erasmus RD(SA) says that the one important simple step that she would recommend is taking a few deep breaths before eating a meal or a snack. “This will help you to feel relaxed and more present and perhaps make it easier for you to eat mindfully, rather than mindlessly,” she says. She also recommends giving yourself those small victories. “One daily win, anytime, is a win for good health. Having water instead of coffee, saying no to office cake, having a smart snack – whatever your healthy action is, it is a small victory to celebrate.”

IF YOU… TAKE A LAP AROUND YOUR LOCAL MALL Next year: If once a week you take a turn around your mall before you start shopping, you could easily walk a potential 20 extra kilometres over a year.

ISSUE 8 2015

IF YOU… CUT OUT ONE COOKIE A DAY

Next year: A half kilogram loss seems so minimal but at that rate, you’ll be 26 kilograms lighter in a year. But you don’t have to drop 26kg to be healthier – losing just 5 to 10 per cent of your body weight can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugars. And that can reduce your risk of diseases including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

23

Next year: That’s 12 people with whom you’ve rekindled or strengthened your friendship, and research has found that people with stronger personal bonds are 50 per cent more likely to outlive their less social peers. There’s no magic amount of phone calls/e-mails/coffee dates that protects you, so if you want to check in with one friend every week, or even every day, go ahead.

ADVICE FROM THE SLEEP EXPERT

ISSUE 8 2015

www.we-care.co.za

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep helps protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life and safety. The way you feel while you're awake depends in part on what happens while you're sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant or it can harm you over time. In fact, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It can also affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Dr Irshaad Ebrahim (MBChB, MRCPsych) of the Pretoria Sleep Centre suggests establishing a routine for your sleep. “Take a bath, a glass of warm milk, or do some light reading before bedtime.” This he says will help to build a base for achieving the sleep cycle that is crucial for restorative sleep. “Try to go to bed and get up about the same time each night and morning.”

IF YOU… GO TO BED ONE MINUTE EARLIER Next year: Going to bed a minute earlier every night for just two months will earn you an extra hour of sleep pretty painlessly. A minute earlier a day for a year would gain you an extra six hours of sleep, which is probably more than you need. There are compelling reasons to get those zzz’s (other than less money spent on coffee). Shortage of sleep is associated with a higher risk of obesity, diabetes and heart problems, a decreased ability to pay attention, increased chances of car accidents, and diminished memory capacity.

IF YOU… CUT OUT A FEW HOURS OF TV TIME Next year: You may have slashed your risk of an early death. Studies have shown that people who watched TV for six hours a day had shorter lives — by about 4.18 years — than people who didn’t watch TV. But TV itself is not the culprit: It’s sitting for prolonged periods that can shorten your life. A 2010 study found that women who logged in some six hours of sitting time during their non-working hours were 37 per cent more likely to die earlier than peers who sat for just three hours over the course of a day (outside of work). Going to the gym daily isn’t enough – the key is to find ways to stand and move more during the day. Some experts recommend getting up from your chair every 30 minutes or less.

Next year: You will have burned double the calories you would by riding the elevator. A 72kg woman would burn about 4,940 calories a year – 0.65kg – if she took three minutes to briskly climb the stairs every workday. That stair habit could burn the equivalent of 11,5 chocolate bars. On the flip side, standing in an elevator for three minutes barely burns 10 calories.

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON

Andrea Kellerman (H.E.D., B.A. Hons. Psych., Med Psych., Dipl.Adv.Hyp, ISNR registered Neurofeedback Practitioner) of EQ Advantage says that improving your time management can go a long way to alleviating stress. “Make a list of what you need to do every day, prioritise those activities, and try to stick to it. It is such an incredible feeling to be able to tick off what you have achieved in the day, thus boosting your self-esteem and ultimately allowing you to feel in calmer and control.

SIT UP STRAIGHT

Over time, bad posture may be caused by habits from everyday activities such as sitting or slouching in office chairs or staring at a computer. Bad posture can easily cause back and neck pain and damage the spinal column. Luckily, says Anna Wood (Go Active Bootcamp director), this bad posture can be worked on and is completely within your ability to control. Anna suggets the following stretches to improve your posture: • Sit up straight and keep your abdominals activated at all times, make sure you have the proper chair with proper back support. • Align your back with the back of the office chair. This will stop you from slouching forward, which you may find yourself doing after sitting too long at your desk. • Stand up and take a break, your body was not designed to sit all day. • Do a quick lunch break stretch – a twisting lumber stretch which loosens the entire back and helps align the spine.

Sleep Savvy Sleep… glorious sleep – we all love it but it’s the one thing we never seem to get enough of. Research from all over the world shows that most of us are not getting that quality, restful sleep that is crucial to health and day-today performance. We scoured the latest research and data for the five most effective ways to deal with the issues that are keeping us awake.

HOW YOU FEEL and perform every day largely depends on how you slept the night before. Conversely, many of your impediments to great sleep – as well as their cures – can be found in your daily routine. Your sleep schedule, bedtime habits and day-to-day lifestyle choices can make an enormous difference to the quality of your nightly rest. Sleep is often not set as a major priority in our day because we take it so for granted. After a long day of checking off everything on your to-do list, you can just climb into bed and fall asleep, right? Wrong. As with any other task we approach, a well-planned strategy is essential for deep, restorative sleep. By learning to avoid common enemies of sleep and trying out a variety of healthy sleeppromoting techniques, you can discover your personal strategy for a good night’s rest.


health habits

Getting in sync with your body’s natural sleep cycle is one of the most important strategies for achieving good sleep. If you keep a regular sleep schedule, going to bed and getting up at the same time each day, you will feel much more refreshed and energised than if you sleep the same number of hours at different times. This holds true even if you alter your sleep schedule by only an hour or two. Consistency is vitally important. • Set a regular bedtime. Go to bed at the same time every night. Choose a time when you normally feel tired, so that you don’t toss and turn. Try not to break this routine on weekends when it may be tempting to stay up late. • Nap to make up for lost sleep. If you need to make up for a lack of sleep, take a daytime nap rather than sleeping late. This strategy allows you to pay off your sleep debt without disturbing your natural sleep-wake rhythm. But be smart about it – while napping can be a great way to recharge, it can make insomnia worse. • Fight after-dinner drowsiness. If you

find yourself getting sleepy before your bedtime, try doing something mildly stimulating to avoid falling asleep. If you give in to the drowsiness, you may wake up later in the night and have trouble getting back to sleep.

2. EAT RIGHT, SLEEP RIGHT

Your eating and exercise habits play a role in how well you sleep. It is especially important to watch what you put in your body in the hours leading up to your bedtime. • Stay away from big meals at night. Try to make dinnertime earlier in the evening, and avoid heavy, rich foods within two hours of going to bed. Fatty foods are harder to digest and may keep you up. Also be cautious when it

Renowned sleep experts, Tempur recommend taking action where you spend up to 30% of your day – your mattress and pillow. • Choosing the Perfect Mattress. Tempur recommend that you research all the options available and make sure that you head to a reputable store when you are ready to make a purchase. They also recommend that you ‘test drive’ your mattress in-store by lying on it for at least 15 minutes. They advise that firm mattresses aren’t always better for your back as firmness doesn’t always mean support. • Selecting the Comfiest Pillow. According to Tempur you need to analyse the position that you sleep in when choosing your pillow. Each different position requires unique support for your neck and shoulders in order to keep them in alignment and reduce neck pain. They advise that the breadth of your shoulders influences the height of your pillow, especially if you sleep on your side. Generally speaking men require a bigger pillow than women. One unconsidered aspect of choosing a pillow according to Tempur is that the firmness of your mattress also influences the height of

comes to spicy or acidic foods in the evening, as they can cause indigestion and heartburn. • Avoid alcohol before bed. Many people think that a nightcap before bed will help them sleep, but it's counterintuitive. While it may make you fall asleep faster, alcohol reduces your sleep quality, waking you up later in the night. To avoid this effect, stay away from alcohol in the hours before bed. • Cut down on caffeine. You should avoid taking in caffeine after lunch and consider cutting back your intake overall. Many would be surprised to learn that caffeine can cause sleep problems up to ten to twelve hours after drinking it! • Avoid drinking too many liquids in the evening. Drinking lots of water, juice, tea or other fluids may result in frequent bathroom trips throughout the night. Caffeinated drinks, which act as diuretics, only make things worse.

your pillow. A very soft mattress will make your pillow feel higher as you ‘sink into’ the mattress, whereas a firm mattress won’t. They say that lying on a mattress similar to the one you have at home is paramount when you are choosing your pillow.

4. GO OFF THE GRID

ISSUE 8 2015

www.we-care.co.za

Light plays a crucial role in our sleeping patterns. The key here is the hormone melatonin, which is produced by the pineal gland and appears to facilitate sleepiness. Melatonin is only excreted into our blood stream when there is little light in the surrounding environment. A natural or artificial light source halts its production and potentially keeps us awake. • Ditch your devices. Banning smartphones, tablets, and even bright electronic alarm clocks from your bedside table will help you bask in a sleepy haze of melatonin at night time. It will also mean that you can't pick up or respond to that stress-inducing email from your boss at five minutes to midnight.

5. PERFECT THE ART OF WAKING UP

A good night's sleep doesn't start the moment you rest your head on the pillow. It starts the moment you wake up. And if you're jumping out of bed, already in "fight or flight" mode, you're setting a stressful tone for the day. • Wake up according to your natural rhythms. Sleep occurs in multiple stages, alternating between deeper and lighter sleep. If we wake up at just the right moment in our lighter sleep stages, we can feel better and more alert right from the start. You will also feel far less groggy and disoriented. • Expose yourself to natural light as soon as possible. As soon as you're up, open the blinds. Even better, go for a brisk walk outside. Natural light will help stop melatonin production and increase your wakefulness.

Everyone knows that it is important to drink water in order to stay hydrated during a run but what a lot of people overlook is the importance of staying hydrated during training or even just throughout your normal day! Dehydration is a major cause of fatigue, headaches and listlessness. Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure that you stay properly hydrated, no matter what you are doing!

Water

Works! 6 Things You Need to Know About Water Intake:

01 02

You should always drink water before a run or before taking part in any exercise! The added sweat loss during a workout will dehydrate you a lot faster than you think.

Aim to sip on water throughout the day. Most people need about two litres of water taken in steadily during the day – this goes for winter too!

03

During a run try to sip on about a litre of water per hour. Some people need more and some need less… listen to your body!

04

“Cotton mouth” is a sure sign of dehydration. Sip a little water whenever you feel that your mouth is dry (this also helps with bad breath).

05

Lean muscle consists of 75% water. Dehydration can cause a serious drop in performance, so listen to your muscles and sip on some water if you feel them becoming a bit stiff or tired faster than usual.

06

Stop if you get dizzy! From dehydration to sun stroke, if you get dizzy you need to stop and rest. Your body knows when it needs a break. There will always be another race to improve on your personal best!

AquaVita is dedicated to bringing you the best possible mineral water to Feed Your System. Their water is drawn from a source deep under the Cradle of Humankind ensuring that it is as pure as possible with nothing added to it.

Running to the Beat WHY SHOULD YOU TRAIN WITH A HEART RATE MONITOR?

GET IN THE ZONE

Zone 1 (heart rate is between 50 to 60% of your maximum heart rate) is a beginner’s level of aerobic training and consists of moderate activity or a warm up. You should be feeling relaxed, warming up at an easy pace and your breathing should be rhythmic. If your goal is to lose weight, you won’t achieve it in zone 1. You need to be exercising more vigorously to increase your heart rate. Zone 2 (60-70%) is your weight control zone. You should be working out at a comfortable pace where you have slightly deeper breaths but can still have a conversation. If you are looking to lose weight, you should make sure your heart rate is in zone 2. Zone 3 (70-80%) is your aerobic zone

ISSUE 8 2015

Once you understand the zones, you need to understand what they mean to you so you can train within them. This is important because each person is exercising for a different goal some want to lose weight and others may want to increase their fitness level. You need to train in the correct zone in order to achieve your goals and keep motivated.

35

YOUR “MAXIMUM HEART RATE” is the maximum number of times your heart beats in one minute. To calculate an average reading of your maximum heart rate, take the number 220 for men or 226 for women and minus your age. For Example 226 – 30 = 196; a 30 year old woman’s maximum heart rate is 196 beats per minute. Once you have your maximum heart rate, you can calculate your unique heart rate zones. These will help you determine where you need to keep your heart rate while training to achieve specific results. These zones can be displayed on our handy table on the next page and clearly highlight the different heart rate zones labelled 1 to 5. If you don’t have access to a table indicating your zones, you can calculate them by working out the different percentages using your maximum heart rate. This will give you a range, which you need to keep your heart rate in. For Instance; a 30 year old female has a maximum heart rate of 196. Zone 3 is 70 to 80% of your maximum heart rate. So 70% = 137 and 80% = 157. This means that in order to stay in zone 3, your heart rate needs to be between 137 and 157 beats per minute.

To reach your fitness goals and maintain them, you need to train smarter, not harder and this can be achieved by understanding your heart rate.

for those whose goals are to increase their fitness or cardio ability. You should be working out at a moderate pace and it should be more difficult to hold conversation. This will increase your cardio ability and improve your aerobic capacity. Zone 4 (80-90%) is your anaerobic zone for hard core training. You will be working out at a fast pace and feel a bit uncomfortable. Your breathing will begin to feel a bit forceful but you will develop improved anaerobic capacity, increased strength and improved speed. Zone 5 (90-100%) is your maximum effort zone. You should be sprinting as fast as you can but you won’t be able to sustain your pace and effort for too long. Your breathing will be laboured but you will develop muscular endurance and

increased power when reaching this zone in your work outs. If you aren’t wearing a heart rate monitor while you train you won’t know what your heart is doing and in which zone you are training. Garmin’s heart rate monitors have 2 electrodes on the inside of the strap and these electrodes press against your skin and pick up the pulses made by your heart beating. This information is then transmitted to your Garmin fitness watch using ANT+ technology. Garmin have spent the last 26 years developing a range of Forerunner fitness watches which are able to provide you with extensive data whilst you are working out. The Garmin Forerunner offers a range of watches from entry level to advanced, and are designed to be functional, robust and beautiful looking.

Superfoods for

Supermoms ISSUE 8 2015

www.we-care.co.za

By Jessica Haworth on behalf of Futurelife

Many moms from all walks of life often feel like they are overworked with too much to do and too little time. You are cooking, cleaning, looking after the kids and reaching highs in your career while still trying to maintain somewhat of a good appearance in between. You are society’s Supermoms and we salute you and your hard work. To help you get through your busy days, Futurelife suggests some superfoods for you supermoms. WHAT ARE SUPERFOODS?

Superfoods are foods that are exceptionally high in vitamins, minerals and overall nutritional value. They are generally more nutrient dense meaning

they give us more good health benefits for the amount of food we are eating when compared to other foods. Superfoods can also offer unique nutrients which are advantageous to the body. These foods often have

antioxidant properties which means that they have natural compounds that protect against the damaging effects of oxidation and inflammation in our bodies which can cause many different disease states.

SUPERFOODS FOR THE EVERYDAY MOM

If you walk into a health shop, the many options you are presented with can be overwhelming. There are many products dubbed as superfoods with many health benefits such as baobab powder, maca powder, hemp seed, spirulina and others. These products may be beneficial to your health, however they are not always readily available and tend to be more costly. Here we have listed four superfoods that the average mom can find in her usual grocery shop and can easily incorporate into her diet.

For the chocolate lovers out there let’s just clarify something first. Cocoa is a basic ingredient made from cocoa beans while chocolate is the processed and sweetened treat produced from cocoa. Most health benefits are associated with cocoa and not directly with chocolate, as chocolate is higher in fat and calories due to the other ingredients added to

3. BERRIES

Berries already have a reputation for being one of the healthiest options however, lately there are many new berries that are trending. So are they good for us and are the old ones just as good as the new berries on the block?

Quinoa (pronounced "keen wah") is an ancient grain originated in the Andean region of Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia. It is mostly found in grain form that needs to be boiled in water to be ready to eat. A 2009 study at the University of Chile found that 15% of the total content of quinoa is protein, more than double the amount found in most standard grains which is the highlight of this unique grain. The study also revealed that quinoa has a complete amino acid profile, meaning that with each serving, you’re giving your body all of the nine key building blocks for making protein. Quinoa is also gluten-free assisting in any gut discomfort or intolerances. Quinoa grains are a good source of fibre, iron, zinc, omegas 3, as well as some antioxidant polyphenols, vitamin E and selenium. Some studies have said to show that quinoa helps lower blood glucose levels in diabetics and, if eaten regularly, helps to lower blood pressure levels in those with hypertension. The scientists credited the presence of

quercetin derivatives in the grain for its positive effects on blood glucose and the cardiovascular system. Moms, you can substitute quinoa for other starches at meals instead of cous cous, potatoes, rice, etc. A welcome change for when you’re tired of making the same dinners over and over again. The higher protein content is helpful when quinoa is used as the starch portion of a meal as it will keep you feeling fuller for longer and provide energy for all your daily tasks. Futurelife’s SmartOats contains quinoa in a blend of its 5 grains to provide you with all these great benefits.

it. As a raw ingredient, cocoa is a good source of iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous and zinc. It also contains the antioxidants catechins and procyanidins. Cocoa beans, along with red wine, tea, cranberries, and other fruits, contain large amounts of flavonols which have extensive antioxidant properties. A 2012 review of evidence on the effects of chocolate on blood pressure concluded that cocoa products, including dark chocolate, may help to slightly lower blood pressure. However, most of the studies were of short duration therefore, the evidence is not very strong. Some limited animal and laboratory research suggests a cocoa-rich diet could offer protection against bowel cancer. However, lab research is not strong enough to make such conclusions. Studies also show limited evidence on stress relief. For our supermoms you can make yourself a hot steaming cup of cocoa, use products that contain cocoa or when you are looking for an indulgence have some dark chocolate as it contains more cocoa than milk chocolate. However, one must be careful that the majority of foods containing cocoa are sweet treats higher in calories, and therefore portion control is important to keep it a healthy addition to your diet and thereby not contributing to weight gain.

Breakfast berry smoothie bowl topped with goji berries, raspberries, blackberries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. Starting off with the most common berry, the strawberry. One serving of strawberries offers 85 milligrams of vitamin C which is 150% of your Daily Value. Strawberries are one of the highest sources of vitamin C only beaten by sweet peppers, oranges, grapefruit and kiwi. Strawberries also provide fibre, manganese, folate, potassium, and like the rest of the berry family, antioxidants. Another common one is blueberries. Some studies suggest that they may reduce memory decline, and reduce heart attack risk and may provide anti-aging benefits. They are also an excellent source of vitamins C and K, manganese and a good source of dietary fibre. Most recently, researchers revealed that women who ate more than three servings of blueberries or strawberries a week had a 34% lower heart attack risk than those who ate less, as berries have high concentrations of anthocyanin, an antioxidant that may help lower blood pressure and improve blood vessel function. Another study found that women who eat plenty of blueberries and strawberries experienced slower mental decline with age than women who consumed fewer of the fruits. One of the new berries that people are talking about are Goji berries or Chinese wolfberries. They have been used by Chinese herbalists to help eyesight, boost immune function and promote longevity. They have remarkable levels of vitamin C, beta carotene, amino acids, iron and B

vitamins. Although there are few published clinical trials, many of goji berries’ reported health benefits are related to their high antioxidant concentration. Moms, there are many types of berries widely available at many supermarkets whether you can find strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mulberries, cranberries and others. Trying to incorporate them into your diet can be just as beneficial even if you can’t find or afford the more exotic ones. Eat the berries as a healthy snack or add them to yoghurt, to your morning cereal like Futurelife or add them into a delicious smoothie like many of the recipes we have on our website using Futurelife as well. You can use berries fresh or frozen however, just be cautious of berry juices as they can be higher in sugar.

4. SEEDS

Seeds are another one where there are old favourites such as flaxseed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds and new seeds that are showing growing interest such as chia. Chia seeds provide a plant source of omega-3 fatty acids which are not very common. This is useful if you aren’t a fan of oily fish but still want to benefit from the anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular disease risk reduction. Chia seeds are higher in protein than most seeds which can be useful for vegetarians. Chia seeds can be added to hot drinks, smoothies and cereals for example but note that they take on a gel texture when mixed with

liquids. Another great source of omega3s are flaxseeds which can be added to baked goods, salads, cereals or adding a crunch to any meal however, if they are ground the body can better breakdown the seeds and get all the goodness from them that it needs to. They are also very high in fibre and magnesium. Flaxseeds are more affordable than chia seeds and therefore, a better option if your purse is appearing a little empty. Pumpkin seeds or the roasted version, pepitas, have been around for a little longer. The green seeds are high in fat and relatively low in fibre, but are a good source of protein and minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese and phosphorous. With all seeds, portion control is important as they are all dense in calories and fat. Eating too many will increase your daily intake of calories and potentially lead to weight gain. Try to stick to 2 tablespoons a day. Also look out for unsalted seeds as increasing your salty food intake contributes to higher blood pressure and risks for other chronic diseases.

CAN YOU TRY IT SUPERMOMS? There always seems to be a new 'best food' item out there to try and it can often get overwhelming. But let's keep it simple. Enjoy exploring the many healthy superfoods that are out there however, take advantage of what is already at your supermarket and eat as much fresh food as possible incorporated into a healthy balanced diet, thus ensuring you will be well on your way to becoming an even greater, more energised Supermom.

Don't overeat. You will feel sluggish and lethargic.

Choose a FAB food guideline that resonates with you. Turn intention into action by implementing that guideline when you eat your next meal and over the next few days. For instance, if you choose don’t overeat then make a point of eating more slowly, and stop eating before you feel overly full. The fifth FAB food guideline suggests being grateful, so why not start each meal with a gratitude thought and comment, so that you are more mindful before you tuck in. You may find that it helps to write down your chosen FAB food guideline and put it somewhere where you will see it as a regular reminder. Creating new eating habits that are sustainable over the longterm really does start with small steps, such as those that you change from intention to action.

SO WHAT? NOW WHAT?

IF YOU’RE LIKE MOST PEOPLE, your dietary habits are probably less than perfect. Your eating is likely a hit-andmiss affair, inconsistent, rushed and an afterthought to your busy schedule. Perhaps you also feel overwhelmed and confused by all the seemingly contradictory nutritional information that’s available. For many of us, it seems that taking the plunge and eating a more wholesome diet may seem to be the equivalent to travelling to the moon and back. But it doesn’t have to be such a daunting experience. Choosing the right fuel is not always easy, but with a little insight, inspiration and initiative you can, and will, increase your energy and overall health – and you may even lose some of that extra weight you’ve wanted to get rid of. Eating right should not be about deprivation or difficulty. It should be about feeling empowered, feeling energised, feeling healthier and making the right choices for the right reasons. Too many of us embark on extreme diets that require us to combat our cupcake infatuations with a “my brain is stronger than your icing” attitude. Trying to beat your body into submission by willpower alone may be more painful than passing a melon-sized kidney stone. Instead, learn about how your body works: about hunger, appetite, digestion and energy balance. Use this information to make better nutrition choices most of the time, not just this week, but for the rest of your life. This will help you create balance, not perfection. Through an approach that is more sustainable. There isn’t any single diet that’s perfect for everybody. If you feel you need a more personalised approach or you have a serious medical condition, contact a registered dietician, who can help formulate a workable, personalised eating plan to suit your lifestyle and personal requirements.

there are a few wines that are made in very limited quantities, and therefore not widely available. On the warmer days try the Donkiesbaai Steen, or the Moederkerk Chardonnay from The Stellenbosch Reserve range. And perhaps the Cirrus Syrah or The Stellenbosch Reserve Ou Hoofgebou Cabernet Sauvignon for those chilly winter's days that are fast approaching.

LIGHT CHILLED DE ROUX WITH J.C. LE LA VALLÉE

Add an uplifting personal touch to springtime celebrations with homemade litchi sorbet served with J.C. Le Roux La Vallée Cap Classique. The sorbet is a superb taste partner for the palatepleasing La Vallée that is made in the time-honoured French tradition of secondary bottle fermentation. Serve separately or, for an interesting combination, dip a litchi sorbet lolly into a glass of La Vallée and let the irresistible flavours meld in your mouth.

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND PAIR IT WITH DELHEIM Delheim Wine Estate’s chef recommends enjoying the best of both worlds by pairing their gorgeous wines with decadent cupcakes. They have created out of this world pairings such as Rooibos Cupcake infused with lemon and topped with a cream cheese and honey icing, which is paired with the Delheim Unwooded Chardonnay and an exotic Pomegranate Cupcake matched with the ever-popular Delheim Pinotage Rosé. Enjoy the full tasting at Delheim Estate in Stellenbosch at a cost of R75 per person for four exquisite cupcakes matched with Delheim wines. Visit www.delheim. com for more ideas

EVERYDAY SNACKS PAIRED WITH TWO OCEANS WINES Two Oceans has taken the guesswork out of wine and snack pairings by pairing six of their wines with some everyday snacks. The fresh strawberry and raspberry flavours of the Two Oceans Shiraz Rosé literally jumps out when paired with moreish roasted garlic chips. This versatile wine also pairs well with Japanese Rice Crackers and Turkish Delight. The fruity profile of Two Oceans Pinot Grigio’s upfront litchi and pear flavours produces a beautiful sweet and salty combination when paired with sea salt potato crisps such as Flannigan’s. Dried mango brings to the fore the gorgeous tropical fruit flavours of the Two Oceans Sauvignon Blanc whilst the subtle spice and smokiness of the Two Oceans Pinot Noir is a hit with medium-spiced biltong. The Two Oceans Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot matches incredibly well with prawn cocktail maize chips, accentuating the juiciness of this blended wine. Olives, although tricky to pair, are a perfect partner for the ripe berry flavours and slight pepperiness of the Two Oceans Shiraz and the fleshiness of the olives ensures your guests will finish the bowl in a flash!

GUILT FREE TIPPLE

For those who prefer to go alcohol free, try pairing baked white chocolate cheese cake with strawberry coulis with the red berry and floral tones of J.C. Le Roux La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic, which brings out the subtle sweetness of pure opulence of the cheesecake.
