Finding a happy, healthy you

Do you want to feel happier? Perhaps you want to be healthier? Or maybe you want to feel happier and be healthier but you’re not sure where to start?

The answer’s simple – join the Girls Around Town this weekend to hear what guest Amanda Whitehead has to say…

She’ll be talking to June and Rosalyn about her own struggles with IBS and an under-active thyroid. And how she’s now using the lessons she learned on her journey to better health to help others overcome their own problems.

Through her Lincoln-based business Calm Holistic – soon to be renamed Healthy Happy You – Amanda shows clients how making the right decisions about what they  choose to eat and drink, how they breathe, sleep and move can help create balance in all areas of their lives.

From the importance of nutrition to whether ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the right amount of exercise to be doing, she’ll be sharing her top tips for becoming that happy, healthy you…

Make sure you tune to 107.8FM or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to hear how making a start is as easy as one-two-three!

Taking your body and mind from tired to inspired

Making your comebacks stronger than your setbacks

Are you pushing, rushing and hustling, while your body is taking, breaking and even faking your energy?

Could you use a little help to make your comebacks stronger than your setbacks?

Meet Trina Kavanagh-Thomas, aka The Alternative Personal Trainer, who’ll be joining the Girls Around Town next weekend to talk about her work as an alternative personal trainer and health coach.

A contributor to both Voices of Courage, where she describes her journey from comfort zone to confidence zone, and Voices of Hope, in which she tells how she refused to give up on herself, she’ll be sharing her own story with June and Rosalyn next Sunday morning.

And explaining how she’s now on a mission to help her clients discover that the happier they are, the better they feel and the faster they heal.

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out what she has to say and how her alternative approach to health and fitness might  be just what you’re looking for…

If my story helps just one person, then I’ve done my job

Bra-vo!

When Janice Holmes popped into the studio at the beginning of June to launch her Bring Out Your Bras! appeal, the Girls Around Town were confident she’d have plenty of support from the ladies of Newark and beyond…

But who could have imagined that, two months on, a staggering 8,000-plus bras are now in a container that will shortly be heading out to Gambia to await her arrival there in November?

And that ‘beyond’ wouldn’t just mean across Nottinghamshire and the UK but all the way to Australia?!

Still reeling from the response, Janice will be back on the show next weekend to describe the impact the venture will have on the lives of all the Gambian girls and women who will soon be wearing their first ever bras.

Joining her next Sunday will be Sylvia Morgan, founder of the New Life Children’s Centres charity. She’ll be giving June an insight into the work it does, providing a future for more than 1,300 children by giving them access to free education and health care and offering outreach programmes to the local communities for hundreds more children and families.

Tune in or listen online from 10am to hear what Janice and Sylvia have to say…

One thing’s for sure, there’ll be a huge ‘thank you’ in there somewhere from them both to everyone whose generosity has made this appeal such a resounding success.
