A new frame of mind

STAR LETTER

I can’t thank you enough for your mind issue (September). In March this year, I was diagnosed with anxiety and, for a long time, I felt alone, unsure if other people understood how I felt. Thanks to the articles included, especially ‘Your healthy mind protection plan’, I now have a better understanding of what I am going through. I only went to see a doctor when I was at the point of desperation – I felt I was living in a dense fog. Reading your feature taught me that I am not the only one who puts others first, sacrificing my own needs in the process. It’s a relief to know there are ways to help improve my mood and make self care part of my daily life. It’s a struggle for me to tell people how I really feel – it’s easy for people who don’t have any idea of what you’re going through to say that it’s ‘all in your mind’ and to ‘pull yourself together’. I really hope that the stigma of having mental health issues will soon be changed for the better.

About Healthy Magazine

We’ve given this issue a clear nutrition focus – as we move into autumn, it’s a good time to think about what we’re putting into our bodies to make them as strong as possible to face the demands of longer nights and colder days. With so much misunderstanding about fats and carbs – both buzz terms, as well as two out of three of our macronutrients – we dive deep into the healthy ways to consume each (p83 and p104). We also give attention to fibre (p89), and why you should too. And I love our nutrition myths busted feature (p32) – with alarming nutrition headlines appearing on an increasingly regular basis, we apply our cool-headed, science-based approach to determine what to pay heed to and, frankly, what to ignore. There’s been much talk lately about the return of the common sense, balanced diet. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know we welcome this. We never use the word ‘guilt’ or ‘guilt-free’ when we talk about food. All foods are OK as part of a balanced diet and, here at healthy, guilt is never on our plates. In other news, I’m sad to say that this is my last Editor’s letter as I hand over the reins to our brilliant new Editor, Anna Berrill. While I’ll be overseeing things in my Editorial Director capacity, Anna will be infusing your healthy magazine with all the fantastic ideas, inspiration and love you read us for. As a parting gift, I’m sharing the products that have made the most difference to me during my editorship. This includes coconut oil – a niche product when I started at healthy nearly five years ago, but now used everyday in my veggiepacked stir-fries – as well as charcoal, originally seen as one of Gwyneth’s weirder recommendations, but now something I can’t imagine NOT brushing my teeth with and, yes, it really does work! You’re welcome.
