While it can be so tempting to sneak down to get takeaways, there are plenty of meals that can be cooked and ready to eat in about the same amount of time as it takes to get a fast-food meal. Stir-fries, salads and slow cookers are all great ways of saving time at the end of the day, and a little organisation will ensure you and your family have a delicious and nutritious meal with minimal fuss. Using herbs for flavour rather than salt, and replacing fats and butter with a healthier alternative such as olive oil, are all small ways of improving your diet that will make a huge difference to your health. Eating a varied diet will help you reach your nutritional targets, and the aim of at least five-plus-a-day when it comes to fruit and vegetables, should never be far from your mind. Look for low fat or low salt alternatives when doing your food shopping, and be prepared to try new flavours. The key to good nutrition is everything in moderation, and completely ridding yourself of your favourite treat is only going to lead to failure. A treat now and then will stop you feeling deprived. New Look For A New Year The arrival of a new year can be like a breath of fresh air and a change of hairstyle may be just what is needed to kick start an exciting year to come. While it can be tempting to go for a drastic change it is very important to take some time to really think about what type of cut and hairstyle will suit your lifestyle and personal preferences. Being too impulsive and making rash decisions without thinking things through properly may lead to disappointment and regret with the potential to take months or even years to rectify. Choosing a new hairstyle needs to take in a number of factors including whether you require a high or low maintenance style, whether the style will suit your face shape and whether your hair is suited to the style. The most important thing when considering a new hairstyle however, is the level of trust in your stylist. Your stylist should listen carefully to your instructions and ideas and discuss with you any potential problems with the style you may have envisaged as well as offering suggestions that may be better suited to you. They may also offer advice on things such as styling, treatments and products and you should leave the salon feeling well-informed, confident and happy with your new look.

While the risk is lowered ever so slightly with high levels of cloud cover, it is still vitally important to remember the SunSmart rules, not only because you still receive damaging UV light but also because our fierce sun could make an appearance at any minute and you need to be prepared.

Add Colour To Your Life If you are looking to colour your hair in any way it is essential that an experienced stylist applies or supervises the application of the colour and subsequent waiting time while the colour process is activated. This is due to the risk of a potential allergic reaction to the chemicals sometimes used in hairdyes and while relatively rare, can be potentially life-threatening. It is also essential for your stylist to have a sound knowledge base of hair colouring products and their effects so that you don’t have undesired results. A new hairstyle and/or colour can change your appearance dramatically and can be a great way, both physically and emotionally, to give yourself a lift and be feeling and looking your best to enjoy the rest of summer to come. Water Essential for Good Health Drinking plenty of water is one of the most important things we can do for our overall health, and the benefits of being hydrated are numerous.
