HEALTHY HERO

Meet Gail Crampton, a store advisor from Dudley
As told to David Kenning

Tell us about your role at Holland & Barrett…

I’ve been working part-time in the Merryhill branch for 14 years. I especially love talking to customers about menopause, mental health and gut health.

Why are those areas so important to you?

Personal experience. My 12-year-old daughter is one of the 8000 children in the UK with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). She was ill from the age of six, but didn’t get a diagnosis until she was 10. We nearly lost her and I don’t want anyone else to go through that. I’m now involved with a charity called CICRA (cicra.org). I’m training for a 5k run to raise money, and I’ve written a children’s book with illustrations by an artist from Devon – I just need someone to publish it! It’s about a hare who learns to share how he feels. A lot of children say they’re OK when they’re not. We should stop telling our children to be ‘brave’ and let them know it’s OK to say if they’re sad or unwell.

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the Christmas issue of healthy! In the December/January edition, we look at how to avoid stress and stay upbeat over the festive period. Plus, we’ve got some tips on making healthier choices at the Christmas party and setting achievable goals for the year ahead. Many of us suffer with stress over Christmas, so for this issue, we wanted to think about all of the positive things that come with it, too. From our fresh-thinking article on perfecting the art of getting tipsy, to advice on how to break the Christmas weight-gain/January diet cycle, we’re approaching the colder months with a positive outlook. In the name of balance, writer Laura Potter looks at why we should practise Pilates to build strength and improve posture. We also look into the benefits of art therapy, as well as offering some crafting tips for you to try. And if you’re hosting your own festive party this year, don’t forget to flip the magazine over for festive recipe inspiration in our dedicated food section. Find all of this, plus our usual expert-led content, in the latest issue of Healthy.
