“It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.”

Fish Oils- An ounce of prevention

 We consume insufficient amount of Omega-3, a fat essential to good health but only found in fish oil and a few other foods. Meanwhile, our intake of Omega-6, another fat found in corn, soy, sunflower and other oils, is far too high. The ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 should be 1:1, but the ratios ranges from 20:1 to 50:1! Consume 2-3 portions of seafood per week or fish oil supplementation may also help in inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn's disease, although this has yet to be completely proved. With regards to children's development, omega-3 fatty acids and their derivatives appear to be important for brain development and healthy eye function. These substances are naturally present in breast milk and are now being added to a number of formula milks. Check with your pharmacist or naturopath for recommended dosages.

A change in season usually signals a change in clothing – the magazine covers, stores and catwalks all testify to this. Why then do we desire to wear the same mental attire through all the seasons of our lives? It gets uncomfortable when

you are not dressed appropriately for the situation you are facing, yet many of us continue to wear the same mindsets we wore 2,3,4,5 years ago and we have conditioned ourselves to feel comfortable in them.

Remember that your mind was not created to function in the comfort zone of mediocrity. You have to get up and get you mind dressed for success and happiness – how else will you accomplish all the dreams you have set for yourself? Stop looking at others and wishing you could have their body or do what they have done – create your own success story! Get your mind active, use your God-given imagination and your body will follow – it’s a new season, dress to suit and savour all that life has to offer you.
