Check how the Morning Cruise kept it real for your Omniscient Tuedsay, putting you in check

keeping you in the know

Some Sun Exposure Important for Bone Health
Over the years, people have become increasingly cautious about exposing their skin to the sun because of concerns about developing cancer. However, continuously slathering on sunscreen and shielding oneself from the sun can lead to vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is a vital nutrient that helps keep bones strong, prevents rickets, and protects against conditions like osteoporosis. UK experts are therefore recommending that, during summers, people go out in the sun without wearing sunscreen for 10 to 15 minutes several times a week.

Today’s Inspiration of the day
How to worry well
1. Distract yourself. When the urge to obsess about your problems (or potential problems) kicks in, force yourself to stop by saying “stop” out loud, if need be. Do something pleasant and engrossing instead: read, sing, exercise with a friend, indulge in a hobby or watch a funny DVD. Doing something that takes your thoughts off your worries will break the grip that negative thinking has on your mind and help you gain a fresh perspective, explains Nolen-Hoeksema.
2. Set worry hours. Don’t worry spontaneously - establish a designated worry time, perhaps in the late afternoon or early evening (but not before bed). When the time arrives, write out a list of your primary worries, suggests Dr Robert Leahy, director of the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy in New York and author of The Worry Cure. For each item, also indicate what you gain and what you lose by worrying about it. Spend 20 minutes focusing on your worries, then tell yourself you’re done for the day.
3. Give your worries a reality check Ask yourself: How much will this issue matter in a week, a month, a year or five years? Is the situation really as dire or urgent as you’re telling yourself? “Most worries have an element of nearsightedness,” says Leahy. But taking a step back, considering the big picture and challenging the way you’re thinking can completely change your sense of what’s happening. By assessing the probability versus the possibility of your worst worries coming true, you’ll realise that no, you’re not destined to become homeless just because your investments lost some value. Then, you can cross that worry off your list.
4. Swing into problem-solving mode. With issues that have potential long-term consequences, write down exactly what you think the problem is or how the situation needs to change, advises Nolen-Hoeksema. Next, rephrase the issue to reflect the positive outcome you desire; for example, instead of worrying about getting laid off, ask yourself how you can make yourself indispensable to your company. Then get the facts about your situation (how is your company doing financially? how vulnerable are you?), brainstorm with a trusted friend what you can do to move toward your goal (maybe talk to your supervisor about how to solidify your position or volunteer for extra projects that need to be done), then formulate a concrete plan of action and give it a try. If it doesn’t work, revise your approach.
5. Know when to let go. When you’re dealing with an uncertain situation that you really have no control over, sometimes the best thing you can do is to simply let go. Imagine your worries being pumped into a helium-filled balloon, then release it into the air and watch it fly away. Take a shower and wash that worry right out of your head. Or write your worry on a piece of paper, crumple it up and throw it in the trash. Then set your sights on what you can control. If you’re worried about the results of some pending medical test, for example, focus your attention on seeing friends you adore or finishing a project at work.
Why waste your time and energy engaging in unhealthy, unproductive worry? Learn to worry well instead! “Your mind can only be in one place at a time,” explains Leahy, “so put it in a place that pays off.”

Life coach Nicholai Andler from
http://www.lifecoachingcentre.co.za/. He joined me this morning to set the record straight.
It is said that action proceeds motivation and not the other way around. Often when it comes to goals be it losing weight, quitting smoking we tend to look for motivation first then expect to do.

According to life coach Nicholai Andler our goals wither away after a week because our reasons do not correlate with what we want. Do you say, “I need to”, “I must” or “I want to”. It may sound similar says Andler but if it’s not what you ‘want to’ do you probably won’t.
We also discussed how “our” goals are brought about by others. Your spouse complains about how your drinking is unlady like or the media makes you feel your size is less than perfect. This creates this need for change.

Lastly Shelia Afari and Cameron Arendse from Design For Style stepped into the studios. DFS was conceptualised to showcase young up & coming designers from a variety of backgrounds with a vision to break into the fashion industry.

DFS is fashion platform that showcases emerging designers through fashion shows. The fashion shows currently take place in Cape Town, but as of March 2011, our shows will also happen in Johannesburg. All our fashion shows are creatively produced to accommodate each designer's unique vision.

The DFS platform is supported by intermediatory events such as workshops that are aimed to assist the designers we showcase as well as other budding designers, to be more sustainable and to learn industry traits such as being commercially viable.

Retail space is made available in Collage, Long Street, Cape Town, where we stock some of the designers that we have showcased. The Collage store will officially open at the end of January.
