I can understand how the thought of kneeling in the hot Australian sun, tilling, fertilising, digging holes and pulling weeds seems like more of a chore than a healthy hobby, but you’d be surprised.

Walk on Through the Rain

Now I’ve got you humming along to Ray Charles or Gerry and the Pacemakers, haven’t I? HOBANites, there is a direct correlation between the declining average temperature and the level of motivation to exercise for most. Let’s face it; winter is a pretty miserable time to be outside.

Don’t Worry Be Happy Now

In the words of Bobby McFerrin, or more memorably to those who were around in the 90s, the notorious Singing Bass: “In every life we have some trouble, But when you worry, you make it double, Don’t worry, be happy”. Simple words (that will be stuck in your head all day now – you’re welcome)…

In Australia, Men’s Health Week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men’s health and for raising the profile of men. Initially conceived by the US Congress in 1994, the week’s purpose was to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems among men.

Being Prepared for the Week Ahead

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Barack Obama are known, amongst other things, for wearing the same or similar clothes every day. Why? To avoid ‘decision fatigue’ and conserve brain power for the greater decisions of the day. Fortunately, there are some things we can all do to avoid decision fatigue. For me, this usually means wearing similar…

Continuing to Support Local Businesses

Over the past few crazy months, it has become increasingly difficult to support our local businesses. Some might have been forced to close or reduce hours.  And we all appreciate that there is a level of convenience that bigger national chain stores offer, while we try and limit our time in public.   We’ve put…
