The UAE is preparing to make history with its first space mission and the two Emirati astronauts chosen for the job are doing their best to stay fit and focused.  The UAE’s first astronaut, Major Hazza Al Mansouri, takes off for the eight-day mission on September 25 at 5.56pm. When his spacecraft docks with the International Space Station (ISS) at midnight, he will become the first Arab to set foot there.  Al Mansouri and his...

While many people tend to put off altruism for various reasons, we often forget that an act of kindness can have a ripple effect on the community around us. Even less well-known is the power that selfless acts have to positively affect not only the recipients of those good deeds, but our own health and wellbeing. It might  seem counterintuitive, since altruism is about giving to others without getting or expecting anything in return (think,...

The signature facial at the Native Club, Zabeel House by Jumeirah, is one of the best I’ve ever had – and with my job, I’ve had a lot.  It lasts a decadent 90 minutes and includes the elements you might expect (cleaning, exfoliating, moisturizing) along with a few of the touches you hope for (a head massage and a face massage, with no pressure to buy products). But the real kicker is the spa’s use...

I’m a minimalist, which means I love doing something you probably loathe the very idea of: cleaning. Never did I have to be forced to clean my room as a child. I took to the task merrily, happily, purposefully. I make a mean bed – throws, pillows, configurations, tightly tucked sheets – and I do it upon waking. Likewise, hoovering is an exfoliation, removing the dead home cells to let the lively ones underneath come to surface...

People in the UAE like meat. But amid the region’s Arabic grill-loving, Aussie barbecuing, meat-sweat-brunch feasting culture is a growing movement toward all things vegan and vegetarian. Enter Beyond Meat. This US-based company has absolutely sizzled to stardom with its signature “bleeding” burger. With a flavor profile and texture similar to real meat, the Beyond Burger blows away limp, sad veggie patties of the past, all while maintaining a protein and calorie profile similar to actual...

From the outside, Olivia McCubbin does not look like someone who would be having problems with binge eating. Tall, glowing and fit, the 30-year-old Australian exudes health. It’s also her business, as co-founder and head coach at The Best Body Co, the fitness company she runs with her husband Adam.  But that is the thing with appearances — and the point McCubbin is now trying to make. “Many women and many clients look up to...

https://livehealthy.ae/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/UAE-sugar-tax-1280x720.jpg

Health experts predict a wide-ranging so-called UAE “sin tax” will raise awareness and prompt consumption of sugar and tobacco to plummet across the Emirates. The new regulations, which will come into effect in January, puts a 100 per cent tax on e-cigarettes, vaping devices and tobacco refills. Juices and drinks containing added sugar and sweeteners will be subject to a 50 percent tax. Dr Vikram Hundia, a consultant endocrinologist at Dubai’s Al Zahra hospital, told...

Many parents are on the lookout to identify any particular talents their child may have from an early age — hoping they may have an elite athlete in the making. If you feel your student is physically gifted, or has a tendency to excel at particular sports, there are several aspects you can focus on that will give your child every chance to succeed. Nothing can guarantee success, however, and you want to keep a...

https://livehealthy.ae/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Anantara-Al-Jabal-Al-Akhdar-infinity-pool-1280x720.jpg

As the highest five-star resort in the Middle East, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, in Oman’s Hajar Mountains, feels like an escape into the clouds.  Health here comes in the form of all things outdoors. You can hike through wadis (the resort offers two guided tours, each around four hours, at varying levels of difficulty) or grab a bike and cycle through the local village. If adrenaline is your thing, there’s Via Ferrata, which basically...

The ease of food delivery — particularly in the UAE — is a lure like no other. It was back in my Dubai infancy when, for matters of convenience, lack of crockery and an unfettered need to try everything, I summoned my breakfast, lunch and dinner with a swipe. Dangerous. You’d be hard pressed to not find someone who hasn’t at some point done the same.  According to Food for Thought, a UAE Food and...
