I read an interesting article in the Sunday paper with the heading “Generation Y Overstimulation? - 18-29 year olds lifestyles are too busy and too stressed and this is driving the country towards a “massive health crisis”! It seems our younger generation spend a great deal of time on some form of technology, and it’s part of their everyday lives and it could be considered addictive with constant checking of emails, Facebook and Twitter while doing other chores. ... continue reading

By on 3 August 2017 click here to comment

It's August and it's SNOW TIME in Australia and due to our very short season many of us hit the slopes at short notice for just a few days. No training, no muscle preparation and after the first day on the slopes you may end up feeling like a bus has hit you and find muscles that you never knew you had that are painful, stiff and stops you from enjoying the slopes.

Earthing Cord Tips and Tricks

By on 1 August 2017 click here to comment

Earthing cords seem to get so tangled and believe me I've experienced the frustration more than others as I'm using them everyday in all sorts of applications. Our Earthing straight cords are a good length of 4.5 metres and this is very handy when you only have one powerpoint in the room and have a good distance to connect, however, if you have a short distance to plug in there will be a lot of spare cord that is likely to get tangled over time. When I'm travelling I will quickly put my cord and plug back in the carry bag and this is when it can get quite tangled causing frustration when it is next needed to be connected. I have also had a lot of you tell me how the cords get tangled and you seem to have the same problem so I have a few tips for you to keep everything neat and tidy. ... continue reading

A lot of people like to visually see how things work, including me, and I guess it gives us reassurance that what we are seeing is real and has some credibility to it.
