Hi Neighbours!

The Minister for Seniors Tracey Martin has released the new strategy for our ageing population, Better Later Life – He Oranga Kaumātua 2019 to 2034.

Like the rest of the developed world, New Zealand has an ageing population. This means there are some things we must consider and prepare for as a country.

Better Later Life takes a fresh look at what is required to ensure New Zealand is a great place to age and achieve the vision of making sure older people lead valued, connecting and fulfilling lives.

The strategy's key areas for action will be used to guide the priorities of what needs to happen in our action plan.

If you’re feeling like you’ve just crawled out of hibernation and missed spring altogether, you’re not alone. Wow, what a wonderful shock to the system this gorgeous warm weather has been! Here’s hoping it continues over the summer break.

Did I mention Christmas …”Eeek”! If you’re wanting to give your body a bit of a wake-up and feel more alive heading into the silly season, keep an eye out for info on my local evening workshop this month where I will share ideas on how you can get your mojo back and make the most out of time with family and friends over the festive season.


We will look at simple steps you can take to:

• Increase energy and vitality
• Shift any extra kilos
• Improve quality of sleep

I will arm you with ideas for nutrient-dense holiday meals and snacks, and for creating a winning mindset to help you get through to January with your sanity intact!

Until then, I plan to take advantage of these sunny days to give my Vitamin D a bit of a post-winter boost by practicing some safe sun exposure.
