LATEST - Issue 154 (Jul/Aug18)
I have a little confession to make. I am not very good at slowing down and smelling those proverbial roses. I often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, hardly giving anything else a second thought.
Yet during those rare moments when I do pause, reflect and look beyond what is happening around me, I feel rejuvenated. Indeed, it's not easy taking time out from your busy schedule, but doing so is incredibly worth it. First off, when you feel calm and focused, the things you can learn and discover are quite eye-opening.
Taking time out gives you the chance to interact with and learn more about the people around you. For our cover story, we did exactly that – talking to two interesting healthcare staff members at
CGH and finding out what makes them tick during and outside work (page 14).
Secondly, your health definitely benefits. When something is amiss, your body will usually reveal signs. You need to be able to pause, so as to be alert to what is going on with your body. Find out how your oral health can provide insight into your overall health and well-being (page 2). Even your urine can show you telling symptoms – Dr Koh Li-Tsa shares the answers to frequently asked questions about urinary tract infection and how to prevent it (page 5).
Other articles in this issue will further help you realise the importance of paying attention to your health and your surroundings. So grab a cuppa, find a quiet corner and enjoy this issue!
