Every year thousands of people are electrocuted but few die of it directly. Instead, more people die in the almost 10 000 fires that are caused by overloaded receptacles. Don’t overload your plugs and limit the use of extension cords by using them only for temporary operations.

25 tips for a healthier, slimmer shape
Diet alone is not the answer to maintaining a healthy weight and BMI. Making smart choices, and changing small, but effective habits, go a long way to achieving your weight loss goals. Here are some of the easiest changes to help you make that lifestyle shift. (Information supplied by

An interview with certified nutritional therapist Andrea Jenkins about better health in winter. Andrea mentioned homemade vegetable soups are perfect for winter nutrition. She also mentioned this is season for all things sugary so stay away from hot chocolates whether it be low in fat or not and unhealthy carbs. With your cereals add cinnamon as suppose to sugar it balances the blood sugar levels - no irritable moods and less sugar cravings

Lastly I played an interview I had done about how fear is fattening with Cape Town psychologist Daphne Cooper. Cooper identified several factors that play a role:
1. Our brains are wired in a very specific way that can be traced back to early times when periods of feast and famine governed our ancestors' eating patterns. "To this day, the threat of deprivation [i.e. dieting] is enough to send us into panic mode."
2. Another "problem" is that eating is pleasurable, which means that the idea of giving it up causes stress. "Going on a diet is really the worst way to
lose weight, as it makes you go into a panic state that's associated with fear, stress and anxiety."
3. Images in the media that portray the message that "stick-insect thin is beautiful" cause anxiety, as achieving the "perfect" body simply isn't possible for most of us. Then fast-food restaurants are often advertised by images of young, skinny, healthy-looking people indulging in large, unhealthy meals. The comparison between ourselves and the people in these pictures puts us in a fearful position.

4. Many of us also believe that things are the way they are and that we can't change them, also in terms of body weight. This makes us feel stuck – a situation which causes stress.
5. We also tend to put a lot of things off "until". For example, you avoid going on a date or on that beach holiday until you've
lost weight. Through this, Cooper says, we put ourselves in a very scary position, and we sometimes waste a lot of energy raging against the gap between how we believe things could be and the way things are.
6. And then, she says, we're often too hard on ourselves. Just listen to what you're saying to yourself when you stand in front of the mirror. Telling yourself that you're looking disgustingly fat in your jeans certainly isn't going to make you feel better about yourself.

Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
- Eleanor Roosevelt
