The Health Fixes You Need in 2016

The Health Fixes You Need in 2016

Don’t wait until next year’s resolutions to start.

By Candice Jackson | 11th May 2016

We’re not talking about quick fixes here: forget the crash diets, juice cleanses and gym trials you HATE. Health is not just what you eat and how you work out – it encompasses your entire body and mind. We’ve got the health fixes you need in 2016 to feel and move better!

1. Improved Sleep

Whether your partner snores or they claim YOU snore (me? Never!), snoring can interrupt a good night’s sleep and also be the first sign of other disorders affecting your health. SNORE Australia is the country’s largest group of sleep disorders centres that provide high quality, affordable medical care for those with sleep-related problems. They specialise in investigating all sleep complaints, including snoring, obstructive sleep apnoea, excessive daytime sleepiness, restless legs and movement disorders. Plus, the majority of their clinics bulk bill!

2. Feel Better, Naturally

Sometimes our bodies just need a little help to get back on track. Nutritional, emotional, structural, psychological, energetic or even spiritual – whatever issues are making you feel off-kilter, kinesiology can help.

Using the gentle and non-invasive art of muscle monitoring, kinesiology identifies the areas blocking the body’s natural healing processes and finds ways to help get you back on the path to feeling healthier and happier, naturally! Common responses to the treatment include feeling lighter, increased mental clarity and energy levels, increased mood and functioning of the immune system, improved digestion and a better understanding of the situation and how to navigate life more easily. Enter here to win one of 30 treatments.

3. A Clearer Mind

Are you in desperate need of some “me time” away from the distractions and stresses of your daily life? If you can’t get into yoga or meditation and aren’t big on adult colouring, Brisbane CBD Just Float’s therapeutic method could do you a world of good. You enter a pitch-black and quiet flotation tank, with warm water saturated with 350 kilos of Epsom salts that help to reduce the sensation of where your body starts and where the water begins. By eliminating noise, light and touch, floaters can achieve a meditative state. One hour in the float tank is equivalent to four hours of sleep so it’s great for muscle recovery, stress relief, regulating blood pressure and assisting in detoxing.

4. Perfect Pins

Just like cellulite, no one likes noticing teeny-tiny red or blue lines on their legs. Our first instinct is to hide the leg veins before they become unsightly. However, no matter your age (yes, you can get varicose leg veins as early as your 20s), there are ways to easily treat leg veins before they become severe. If you can notice visible changes or signs, or feel aching, itching or pain, pop in for a quick visit with a professional, such as Brisbane’s Dr Kemp from The Leg Vein Doctor. Dr Kemp will target your problem areas in a walk-in, walk-out session with minimal discomfort.

If you’re worried about developing leg veins, you should aim to maintain a healthy bodyweight, stay active and reduce the amount of times you wear heels.

5. A Fitter You

If you’re using every excuse in the book to avoid the gym, it’s time to mix up your fitness game. These days you don’t need to cement yourself into a long-term gym membership or contract, with apps such as Classpass making fitness infinitely more enjoyable! Classpass allows you to have one membership that is valid at a range of gyms, dance studios, boot camps, swimming pools, yoga studios and trampoline centres all over Brisbane. It’s the perfect thing to get you out of a fitness rut. After trialling 29 classes in 29 days, I definitely recommend it to everyone.
