Gain Pet, Lose Weight

Laura V
Did you know that obesity is one of the biggest killers of Australians with up to 40% of adults suffering the relentless battle of the bulge. But it’s not just us who are affected. With people attracted to bad eating habits, it’s not uncommon for us to pass our vices onto our children and even dogs! According to animal behaviourist expert, Laura V, "An estimated 30% of dogs are overweight, leaving them at risk of the same sort of chronic diseases as humans. Dogs are more ‘rotund’ than ever before, becoming not just a health issue but a welfare concern as well." In her latest article for HIF, Laura provides her 8 step approach to losing weight and says that in 8 weeks, you’ll be thanking her, but more importantly you'll be thanking your dog.

Coping With a Loss

Coping With a Loss

Dr. Happy
When you suffer a loss whether it’s the (hopefully) occasional loss of a loved one; or the (typically) more frequent loss of an opportunity experienced as a minor disappointment, the emotions can be overwhelming and something with which we will all be faced and something we all need to learn how to manage. According to our mental health expert, Dr. Tim Sharp, The good news is that we can cope with loss. As humans, we are remarkably strong most of the time. Knowing loss and disappointment will come at some stage, knowing what to expect and having some idea about what you can do to actively ameliorate the distressing emotions, are all important components of living a healthy and resilient life." In this article Tim provides his advice on how to help us understand our emotions, take care ourselves, seek support, and look to a positive future.
