MIND & SOUL
THE REAL LIFE RISKS IS NOT TAKING RISKS
we have a choice. it is the choice between really living, or merely existing. getting a job is a risk. crossing the
road is a risk. starting a business, a relationship or a family is a risk. eating in a restaurant is a risk. (some are
more risky than others!) life is a risk. so let’s get out on some limbs and pick some fruit.
BODY & SHAPE
POP A PILL
take a basic, one-a-day multivitamin (with 400 micrograms of folic acid if you’re of child bearing age). ditto a
calcium supplement; we need 1,000 milligrams a day until menopause and 1,200 thereafter (ask your doctor
if she thinks it should be more and when to start annual bone density scans). add b12 if you’re over 50.
