Finding a fresh perspective on the game of life

There’s a definite wellbeing buzz here on Girls Around Town this month, with Claire Clements and Louise Hallam in the studio earlier today talking about blissful balance and Alison Harris offering hints and tips for healthy eating habits in two weeks’ time.

Completing the trifecta, Sunita Passi will be joining June next Sunday to share details of an upcoming event in Nottingham and a brand new centre she’s just opened in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, both of which focus on different aspects of – yes, you guessed it – wellness…

From 7.15pm to 10.45pm on Friday 11 October, she’ll be hosting Create Your Future, a lively exploration of authenticity and how to be more of yourself, whatever form that takes in your life.

During the evening Jamie Catto, whose hit career with Faithless is matched by his enthusiastic approach to spirituality and relationships, will be sharing some of his adventures and what they’ve taught him.

Jamie’s workshops attract people from far afield and, for this one, he’ll be joined by other health and business experts in a panel discussion and Q&A session designed to help participants look forward to a fresh perspective on the game of life.

There’ll be news from Sunita too about her Wellness Centre, now up and running at The Engine Yard following its launch and open day on Sunday 11 August.

In a tranquil spot close to Belvoir Castle, the centre is a place where you can unplug from the world and enjoy a range of classes and treatments with some of the region’s most skilful therapists, from ayurvedic massages, facials and body scrubs to yoga, meditation and more…

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how to take care of your mind, body and emotions through these natural processes of healing.

And how, with a little help from Jamie, you can discover ways to make more of yourself and your life.

Whatever it is we do, we owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be. One blissful consequence is that allows us to support others to do the same – the effects of self-care ripple through everything we do – Sunita Passi

Tackling tummy troubles

It’s just over a year since naturopath and colonic hydrotherapist Linda Booth last joined the Girls Around Town in the studio. But she’ll be back this weekend to offer more advice on what to do if your digestive system’s not quite up to scratch right now…

Widely known as the Tummy Queen, Linda’s career in natural medicine began over a quarter of a century ago, in 1992. Since 2005, she’s been running one of the UK’s most successful natural digestive and gut disorders clinics and has carried out over 60,000 consultations and treatments.

Putting her knowledge and experience to good use, she’s created her own range of probiotics and supplements, Just For Tummies, and she’ll be chatting to Rosalyn and June about how optimising your digestion can increase your energy levels and give you more zest for life.

“In my experience, irritable bowel syndome (IBS), bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, fatty liver, excess gas, thrush and urinary tract infections (UTIs) can all be alleviated,” says Linda. “It’s simply a matter of knowing and understanding what is causing your symptoms and then adopting a tailored supplementation plan.”

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find more about IBS in particular, as Linda explains just what it is, what causes it and – crucially – what cures it!

Handmade with love

Newark’s Royal Market will soon be buzzing on the last Sunday of every month, as local crafters join forces to bring their handmade goodies to town…

With the first Artisan Market taking place from 9.30am to 4pm on Sunday 25 March, organisers Louise Clark and Melanie Luff will be in the studio with June next weekend to talk about the treasure trove of treats in store for visitors in the months to come.

They’ll be taking a look back at some of the Craft Markets held last year and describing how, with the support of Newark Town Council, they’re building on their success to make events like these a regular feature in the town centre.

There’ll be news too of the Spring Extravaganza for Jake’s American Dream, held at Stoke Rochford Hall on Sunday 4 March, and of the special two-day Artisan Fayre over the Bank Holiday weekend of Sunday 27 and Monday 28 May.

Tune in on 107.8fm or on DAB digital radio or listen online to Girls Around Town between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday to find out more.

And if you’re looking for something a little bit different to enjoy, don’t forget to put the last Sunday of every month in your diary!
