Are the days of a settled, flat tummy without pain a distant memory? We all experience digestive upsets occasionally, but if it’s not the norm, this may indicate that you have something called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is believed that between 15 to 20% of New Zealanders suffer from this condition.
We all feel tired from time to time, that’s a normal part of life. However, ongoing fatigue can be an insidious beast and over time it can become the norm for many people. If you are one of those people that find themselves drowsy during the day, having difficulty concentrating, experiencing brain fog or wanting to lay down, then perhaps you should be digging a bit deeper and finding out why.
Are we trying to live up to unrealistic expectations of creating a ‘perfect’ Christmas? Should we rather be keeping things simple and enjoying our time with our family and friends? Are we being sucked in by all those ‘fabulous’ marketing campaigns? Christmas is a tradition that is religious for some. For others it may be the time to have a well-deserved holiday.
