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...

How do you make a difference in the world? How do you actually bring about a change for the better? How do you do good things?  We asked three UAE residents how they implemented their ideas for bringing change not only to their own lives but also to the lives of others. Tatiana Antonelli Abella is the founder of Goumbook, an information resource on how to live in a greener, more eco-conscious way. After losing...

There is a growing movement in the UAE toward food that is locally-made and locally-grown where at all possible. All very commendable – and all very challenging when you live in a desert country like the UAE, which relies heavily on imports. But that hasn’t stopped these enterprising foodies from striving to make “Made in the UAE” a byword for “delicious.”  Former economic analyst Justine Corrado launched Basiligo, her food delivery business, in 2014 because...

The Movember movement was a big step forward for men’s health – but what about the rest of the year? There still remains a stigma attached to men seeking professional help for their health problems, whether physical or mental. A new generation is now trying to change that, encouraging men to take care of their bodies and minds all year round and teaching their sons to do the same. “There’s a bit of denial and fear,”...

There’s no polite way to say this: residents of the UAE are a bunch of wasters. The country is sitting on an ever-growing mound of trash.  The UAE imports a whopping 80 to 90 percent of its food – and then throws away as much as a third of it, unused. The country ranks highly in plastic usage, using most of it just once.  The environment is in peril and so are we if we...

Like everything else, wellness has its trends. There’s fasting and Fitbits and every kind of diet under the sun, all claiming to transform your health and your life. But which are the ones that work and which are the ones that disappoint? Earlier this year at the first-ever Livehealthy Festival, three experts assessed three of the most popular current wellness trends. Intermittent fasting To fast intermittently means you must consume your daily calorie intake within...

It is a sad fact that as we age, we grow stiffer in the joints, flabbier in the muscles and thicker around the waist. Keeping fit gets harder over 50 — or does it? Captain Jean-Marc de Montrichard and Kimberley Dittrich would beg to differ. Jean-Marc, a pilot, trainer and examiner for Etihad, was in his late 40s when he became an instructor for Body Combat, Body Pump and RPM and 50 when he opened...
