Hope you’ve had a great week!
So excited to be getting a glimpse of spring sunshine peaking through.
Did you see naturopath Lindsay Ingleton on last weeks show talking about how to prevent the spring sniffles? Apparently eating a small amount of local honey is the key.

Mick O’Malley – Australian Kokoda Tours
When ex-champion boxer Mick O’Malley walked Kokoda, his life was changed. Such was the impact of that trip that he’s now made the trek an incredible 54 times. Mick now runs Australia Kokoda Tours, where he trains at-risk youths to make the trek with him often with inspiring transformations.
This week our resident naturopath Lyndsay Ingleton talks about the importance of getting enough iron in our diets with a few handy tips to enhance iron absorption.
For many of us, meditation may seem like it’s not our thing but we all know it’s good for us. This week, Dylan Frusher teaches us that meditation is just about building a healthy relationship with our busy minds. He describes a simple way to meditate, focusing on our breath to train our attention to stay more stable.
Cynthia Morton – Discipline
For this week’s word vitamin, Cynthia Morton talks to us about the importance of discipline. Practicing patience, instead of focusing on the now will help us to achieve our longer-term goals.
Elaine Janes and Her Chooks
On this week’s Happy Pets segment, we meet Elaine Janes and her trained pet chickens. Elaine is a competitive powerlifter and is well supported by her chickens, who often accompany her to train. Although nearly 73, Elaine has set her sights on a 100kg lift this year and with her determination and positive attitude, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it!
This week, thanks to Morris Finance we take Anthony and Jordy skydiving. Anthony was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bowel cancer in 2016 and his courage and determination is inspirational.

After Anthony and Jordy come back to Earth from their skydive Angie has a second big treat in store for them.
