A hypnotherapist provides expert insight into
overcoming life s daily stresses and strains:
1. Don't lie to yourself. That might include
whether you are actually a healthy weight, whether
you drink too much or eat a diet that is good for
you. Take an objective, honest view of your health,
nutrition and level of fitness. If you get those three
areas right you ll have a strong health grounding.
On a more emotional level, ask yourself: "Who am
I really and does what I do in my life reflect that?"
If it doesn t, there will always be a part of you that s
2. Don't let fear hold you back. Fear stops many
of us living well. Whether it s fear of change, the
unknown or of the results, it keeps thousands of
people in situations that are making them unhappy
or unhealthy. Decide what changes you need to
make, look at what worries you about that and think
how likely it actually is to occur (and what if it
does?). Regret is a harder emotion to handle than
3. The best way to fight stress is to stay in the
present. A lot of the things that cause us stress
aren t related to what s actually happening in our
life but our reaction to it. We spend too much time
reflecting on the past or worrying about the future
and none of that is actually the reality. The more
time you can spend in the now, the more likely you
will actually reduce stress.
4. Study how you speak to yourself. Our internal
linguistics---the words we use in our head---can be
key to how good we treat ourselves. If you constantly
beat yourself up or use words like "should" or "must,"
ask yourself where those thoughts are coming from.
If you do find yourself doing so---be aware of it, try
to manage it and don t let yourself fall for it.
5. Forget the idea that there's a quick-fix to good
health. If it took you 20 years of choices to create
a health issue such as being overweight, you won t
fix it with a 10-day diet. Forget short-term goals.
Ask yourself: "What would I like my legacy to be?"
Think long term and view it as a journey to the
result you require. Then take steps towards it.

A nutritionist provides five simple steps to reboot
your approach to healthy eating.
1. Stop eating sugar. Not only does it increase the
risk of weight gain, when it comes to hormones---
one of the keystones of health---it can cause imbal-
ances. A diet high in sugar or refined carbohydrates
causes overproduction of insulin, which leads to the
deposition of fat around the middle. It is also linked
to a higher risk of diabetes and heart disease. Sugar
also interferes with female hormones, increasing the
risk of PMS and, in some cases, it can affect fertility
and the ease with which you conceive.
2. Balance your levels of omega-3 and omega-6.
The average Western diet contains about ten times
more omega-6 fats than omega-3. This puts the
body in an inflammatory state, which can trigger
hormonally-linked problems. The easiest way to
rebalance things is to eliminate vegetable oils, and
everything made from them, in your diet and increase
omega-3 from oily fish, nuts and avocados. Ironically,
the evening primrose oil that many women take to
tackle PMS is very high in omega-6: if you use this
it s important to counteract it with more omega-3.
3. Don't be afraid of phytoestrogens. There s a
myth that these supply the body with oestrogen, and
so women have become a little fearful of them. What

by eating low-GI meals and ensure your diet is high in
B vitamins and magnesium.

Soy provides isoflavone (a phytoe-
strogen), but there are many other
types and it s good to have a variety
of them. Other foods you should con-
sume include beans, lentils, peanuts
4. Look after your adrenal glands.
They are one of the body s hormon-
al-production centres. Our stressful
lives tend to put them under pres-
sure, which can lead to
fatigue, weight gain and
poor concentration. Aim for
a good work-life balance,
regulate blood sugar by eating low-
GI (glycemic index) meals and ensure
your diet is high in B vitamins and
magnesium (wholegrains and leafy
greens). If you are stressed try an L-
theanine supplement, which is calm-
ing and supportive.
