Body Talk - 4th May 2010

Latest news suggests that pregnant women who feed only on junk food could be putting not just their children but their grandchildren at risk too. So don't use pregnancy as good excuse to gorge yourself on all of those naughty but nice foods. It could have far reaching effects.

Top tip for the day is to stand on one leg while brushing your teeth. This works the deep core muscles in your abdomen which protect your back.

Don't lie in on your day off. Changing your sleep pattern can have a dramatic efffect on the hypothalamus which balances hormones. When upset it can trigger headaches. You can also suffer caffeine withdrawal if you sleep through your normal early morning tea or coffee time. Best to slow cdown the caffeine intake first.

If you can't sleep, do a jigsaw. Don't just lie there willing yourself to sleep. It's best to get up and do something relaxing absorbing and distracting, ideally using your hands and eyes. Only go back to bed when you're sleepy. It's impossible to worry while you're working out which bit of blue sky fits with the next.
