More and more women are putting off having children, so there comes a time when many of them ask a gynecologist for help. In her practice at Primavera Medical Centre in Dubai, Dr Rosalie Sant, a member of the livehealthy.ae expert panel, deals with this issue all the time. We asked her what is going on with our fertility these days – and what we can do to help it along.  Are we leaving it too...

As we slowly re-enter daily life, parents face many challenges compounded by the complications of COVID-19. As a mother of two young children, I fully understand that we are in an extraordinary moment in time that offers reasons to be concerned, cautious and optimistic, all in equal measure. I have experienced first-hand how young people struggle socially, academically or emotionally when confronted with sudden and unexpected change. So how can we support our children and...

Being Black in the yoga and wellness space is like being Black in many places: you often find that you’re the only one in the room and you regularly come up against discrimination. My experience as a student, both in the United States and in the UAE, has been that it is difficult to find truly inclusive wellness studios and spaces. It’s even more difficult to find Black representation among teachers. The cultural appropriation of...

The mind is a powerful thing. It conjures up unwanted thoughts that are so tenacious that, try as we might, we cannot shift them. It defines our perception of ourselves and our surroundings, even if that perception is harmful. But you can banish those thoughts and change the way you view the world, using that same power of the mind. All it takes is a few tweaks, says clinical hypnotherapist Laila Saif.  A simple exercise...

My 36th birthday last May marked a big turning point in my life. I woke up feeling numb even though, on paper at least, I should have been happy. I had flown to Kuala Lumpur to celebrate the occasion, booked myself into one of the city’s nicest hotels and planned a day of doing things I love. What more could I want?  And yet, I felt unhappy and empty. I thought I’d shake it off...

The Coronavirus swept through the world seemingly overnight, leaving our brains little time to absorb the shock. We know it poses a threat to our health, which causes anxiety. The virus is invisible to the human eye, which increases our fear and feelings of insecurity. When a dangerous outbreak such as Covid-19 occurs, it is normal to experience variations of post-traumatic stress. As a result, you might feel exhausted, irritable, unfocused and have trouble sleeping. Severe...

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how quickly human societies can transform themselves. While businesses work their way through the economic crisis, every individual can play a huge part in creating a sustainable environment just by making a few lifestyle changes. A spike in electricity bills from May to September is a common issue faced by UAE residents, as there is a constant need for air-conditioning throughout the summer season in the desert. Here are some...

For several years, the yoga world has been in a state of crisis, rocked by revelations of sexual abuse dating back decades. A Vice exposé is the latest outlet to level charges, this time against the founder of Yoga to The People, a pay-what-you-can chain of studios in multiple US states. The problems came to light via an anonymous Instagram account started by former employees, leveling charges of a toxic and manipulative workplace culture involving...
