How to break old habits before they break you

Did you know that over 40 per cent of your daily actions are habitual?

Not a problem if they’re good ones of course but what if they’re aren’t…

If you find that the same bad or undesired habits keep cropping up – and they’re not only hard to break but give you feelings of failure because you can’t stop them doing so?

One way to find out how to break old habits before they break you is to head over to Rosalyn Palmer’s website where she offers advice on what to do here.

Or even better, why not hear that advice straight from the horse’s mouth as it were on this week’s Girls Around Town?

Ros will be joining June live in the studio for the first time since lockdowns began at the end of March 2020 and they’re both looking forward to catching up in person instead of by phone shortly after 11.10am.

Top of the agenda will be that guidance on how to put an end to those bad habits but there’ll be time too for an update on the latest news from her coaching business and no doubt for a quick catch up on life on the farm over in Lincolnshire as well!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening on the apps, on Alexa or online for all this and more when you Put On Your Sunday Best this weekend…

Sunday – best day of the week once more!

At last, the news you’ve all been waiting for – Newark‘s favourite show by, for and about women will be back on 107.8FM and online soon!

There’ll be a few small changes to the format, in line with government guidance about safety and social distancing, but rest assured June, Rosalyn, Rachel and Claire will still be going all out to keep you informed and entertained between 10am and 12 noon every Sunday morning…

Kicking things off on Sunday 12 July, June will be in the studio catching up with fellow presenter Ros by phone in the first hour.

Then in the second hour, it’s time for Wendy Baird from Carriages to give her a call and talk about the fantastic work the team at the Newark café has been doing recently.

Believe it or not, over the last few months literally hundreds of meals have made their way to the homes of Newark residents, many of whom would have normally visited Carriages every Wednesday evening for the Community Café

Make sure you’re listening from 11.20am to find out from Wendy how, with the help of local businesses and lots of willing volunteers, those meals just kept on coming – and will continue to do so.

There’ll be plenty of good music throughout the show too and news of some of the other guests already lined up for the next few weeks…

When lockdown began at the end of March, the Girls Around Town told you they’d be back as soon as possible and finally they’re ready to make good on their promise!

Fringe benefits

Earlier today, June had a phone call out of the blue from a former business contact, asking for help promoting an initiative the local charity he’s involved with is currently running – watch this space, information on that coming soon…

During the conversation, they were chatting about different ways of keeping your spirits up during the current crisis and something he said really struck a chord.

Yes, everyone needs to safe safe, keep fit and eat healthily – remember that all-important five-a-day rule! – but how about this for another five-a-day you should be adding to your list?

Make sure you’re getting five giggles a day!

With that in mind, here’s one of your five for today from the Girls Around Town with a little help from Michael and Karen of Marshalls Hair in Newark.

Double benefits with this little demo – not only is it guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, it shows you how to tackle that out of control fringe, taking you through what not to do and, more importantly, how you should be doing it!

And for those ladies out there whose husbands’ hair needs a trim, watch this space for more help coming from Michael soon…
