We weren’t sure what to expect from The Bee Cafe, the first business in Abu Dhabi to employ an entire team of people of determination. With no website or social media handles and located within the Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination, this progressive coffee shop got lots of press when it launched and already seemed like it could be a cool hidden gem.  The location and vibe It’s refreshing to walk into this...

When the increasingly popular field of life coaching took root in the UAE, it remained largely inaccessible to one of the UAE’s largest groups: people who speak only Arabic.  Moza Al Hameli, a 43-year-old Emirati life coach, aims to change all that.  She has just launched her Abu Dhabi-based training academy Azher, which offers sessions and workshops for those who seek to live a more meaningful life – with adjustments in tone, translation and, of...

This article is part of #HOWSWEETITISN’T — a series in which livehealthy.ae takes a closer look at how sugar affects our health. When cutting down on refined sugar, it is natural to try to replace that sweet taste with what can be perceived as guilt-free substitutes.  In many ways sugars found in honey, maple syrup and other natural forms can be a healthier alternative, because they also contain nutrients not found in refined table sugar.
