What do you talk about when you’re with your closest friends? Do you discuss modern philosophy? Grumble about annoying colleagues? The shocking ineptitude of same-day deliveries? Or where you should go for your next group holiday?  We cover a wide spectrum of talking points with our chums, but I can guarantee, you don’t talk in-depth about money – at least not in personal specifics.  Right now, the global economy is on its knees and the...

We are fed a lot of platitudes on positivity. From looking for silver linings to faking it till you make it to rising and shining before dawn breaks, the list is endless. However, motivational fridge magnets don’t carry the same clout as a seasoned wellness expert and successful entrepreneur. So when the JW Marriott Marquis brought a group of industry leaders together for a positivity panel called Gather, livehealthy.ae tagged along. And we came away...

Meg Nakagawa-Hoffman knows about mental health challenges: the New York University Abu Dhabi student was diagnosed with depression at the age of 17.  She sought out a psychiatrist and has been on medication ever since. Then her cousin, who suffered from mental health problems, took his own life. And she became determined to put mental health on the map in a productive way. Now 20, the political science and legal studies major – who is originally...

There’s a lot of happiness in having less. As Fumio Sasaki’s teaches in Goodbye, Things: “There isn’t a single person who was born into this world holding some material possession in their hands.”  As an expat, I’ve have long wrestled with the “I might be moving soon” predicament, keeping the number of things I own to an almost bare minimum. Right now, I am in the throes of a contradictory issue. I am having a...

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...

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...

It’s only in recent years that travel throughout the GCC has taken pride of place in current tourism trends. Even just a decade ago, international destinations far out-favored short-haul trips. Now, however, we’ve become more acquainted with our counterparts in the region. As interest grows in uncovering the depths of what the region has to offer, so have home-grown tour companies who pave the way to never-before-traversed terrain.  Jumping on the burgeoning bandwagon is Yalla...

Core 8, a wellness platform in Dubai, was actually born out of horrible pain. “My head felt like it was parked on a spike,” recalls co-founder Nikki Meyler. “I was taking medication every single day, going to hospital and being given pethidine injections as well as morphine. I was trying to get myself better but nothing was helping. I wasn’t getting anywhere. Pilates was recommended to me, but I would end up in incredible pain...
