Getting into the right headspace to exercise

MOVING: A simple walk daily can be beneficial to mental health. For some, more vigorous activity can produce even greater effects on mood. I can’t count the number of times I have heard ‘run Forrest run’ when I’ve been out on my daily run.
Nanjing Night Net

I always have a little chuckle as I love not only the physical health benefits running brings, but also the positive effect on my mental health. We all experience stress daily but excessive stress can manifest itself into mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. October 11 was Headspace day-an initiative of the National Mental Health Foundation. This monthis a great time to explore the physical impact of mental health issues and how we can harness physical activity as part of a management plan.

It’s common in a physiotherapy clinic to see clients with aches and pains that are exacerbated by increased stress levels and more significant mental health issues. Increased muscular tension is a typical response to stress and can result in neck and back pain, headaches, jaw pain from clenching teeth, and generalised aching and fatigue.

While the causes of stress can be out of your control, recognising patterns of increased muscular tension is a great start to feeling physically better. Regular practise of relaxation exercises can assist in reducing pain and ultimately breaking the physical response to stress.

Feeling sad and unhappy can often result in slumped postures. Poor posture can add stress to our spinal joints and also increase spinal pain. Having awareness of this can allow you to adopt more comfortable postures and avoid the development of musculoskeletal pain.

There is a correlation of reduced physical activity and poor mental health.Those suffering mental health issues often struggle to find the motivation to exercise and be active. The British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2010 reported that sedentary behaviour and mental health issues are strongly linked. However, exercise has been shown in adolescents and young people to improve self-esteem and assist in managing anxiety and depression.

A simple walk daily can be beneficial to mental health. For some, more vigorous activitycan produce even greater effects on mood. Finding something you like to participate in is not always easy but start off with small amounts of exercise, such as a walk around the block, to get into the habit. Getting outside also assists with mood, as lack of exposure to natural light can also result in low mood levels.

So next time you yell out ‘run Forrest run’ to someone pounding the pavements, they may just be having a mental health therapy session. Yelling out ‘good job Forrest’ may just help them keep going.

Webbcona opens account

Nathan Mahony
Nanjing Night Net

Webbconaopened its account in theBallarat-Geelongpremierbowls season with a convincing victory overCity of Geelong on Saturday.

Webbcona started well and never looked back, leading all day to clinch a 39-shot win –107 shots to 68.

In what was another difficult day for City of Geelong, which has now suffered two heavy losses to start the year.Webbcona skipper Brett Mahoney said he was extremely proud of the performance given its poor preparation, which now has the club knocking on the door of the top four.

The only play it got onits home green in the lead-up to the clash was on Saturday morning. Combined with the windy conditions, it made for a difficult day, making the result all the more pleasing.

“Our front green’s pretty open and the wind was chopping and changing –it was really difficult conditions,” Mahoney said.

“For the second week of pennant we’re very pleased with the form players are showing. We haven’t had much of a chance to even practice because the green’s been shut.With the lack of preparation we had, I’d say we did a mighty job.”

Mahoney said the side felt in full control for much of the match.

He said getting off to a quick start was crucial against any opponent andcoupled with consistency throughout the day would ensure a successful outcome.

“Right from the first end we were in front of them.

“If you maintain the lead from the word go and come away with the win, it shows that you’ve got a lot of the team bowling consistently, putting bowls on the head and usually that’s the secret recipe to come away with the win.”

Recruits Anne Draffen and Chris Steenhuis continued their strong start with their new clubs, both leading their respective rinks well.

While Rod Barton impressed in his jump up to the premier division, after filling the void left by Greg Blackburn, who was unwell.

In other premier division results, Queenscliff defeated reigning premierVictorian 101-89 in a huge result for the Cliffers.

Handicap Pairs

The Handicap Pairs commenced on Saturday with all five first round matches played in beautiful conditions. Jim Beattie and Barry Sloane had to withstand a scare on the last end to claim a 21 – 20 win over Perry Franke and John Monks. The game had been very tight until Sloane won a series of ends to set up an eight shot lead with 2 ends to play. Monks picked up 2 shots on the 20th end and then dominated the last end and almost forced the game into an extra end. Unfortunately for him they fell one shot short allowing Sloane to advance to the next round.

Julian Penny and Allen Etheredge also had a very close game with Lou Kozlik and Doug Williams. Ettheredge and Penny had to give four shots start and they managed to make up the deficit and by the 12th end they had a 15 – 9 lead. Kozlik and Williams then fought back to be in front 16 – 15 after 15 ends. The last six ends were very tight but Etheredge prevailed to win 22 – 20.

Alf Winch put on a great display of lead bowling as he helped Dave Carter record a strong win over Mick Atkinson and Peter Macdonald. Winch was almost unbeatable in the first half of the game as he steered his side to a 24 – 7 lead after 12 ends. Atkinson and Macdonald had some success from here but they could not avoid the final 29 – 13 loss.

David Boon and Ron Cox won all but four ends as they recorded a very convincing 34 – 6 win over Dennis Benger and Ian Wratten.

Jim Macklan showed his versatility as he moved from his normal lead position to play a great game as skip as he teamed with Reg Endall to outplay Stan Peck and Alan Skelton. Macklan was in great touch on both hands as he won 28 – 9.

Letters to the editor

TIME FOR FINES Chris Elmer says someone should start fining those that litter and fail to clean up after their dogs.
Nanjing Night Net

I completely agree with Karen Hamilton re: picking up after your dog (Adv., Oct. 5).

My wife and I walk our dog a lot and are constantly having to dodge these barkers’ nestsas my dear late mother called them, in most dog walking areas there are plenty of bins with rolls of bags attached to clean up after the dog but people still don’t do it.

It is time someone was employed by the council to monitor this and dish out the fines that have been put in place, it is after all classed as littering.

Whilst on the subject of dangers whilst in public we have also noticed the increase of broken bottles, those left by careless people and drunken idiots who think it’s funny.

This has recently cost us quite a bit after our dog cut her foot deep whilst playing in our local park.

A Saturday trip to the vet, dressing, antibiotics, pain killers etc was not cheap and could so easily be avoided if more monitoring and fines were carried out.

Imagine if this had been a child, it would have been a much bigger and deeper cut, possibly requiring stitches and/or surgery so come on people, dig deep and find your common sense and do the right thing.

Chris Elmer, East Devonport

ADVERTISING DECISIONWhat was the advertising agency thinking when they used a you beaut American GI Joe doll to advertise Subaru?

Get rid of it and bring back the singing dogs.

CLOTHING LAWSIf it is illegal to strip down to your swimmers publicly in Malaysia because of their Muslim laws, then why can’t it be illegal to wear a burqa in Australia?

RENEWABLE ENERGY URGENCYAustralia imports all its automotive fuel oils from overseas. That supply is our greatest security vulnerability.

With no fuel nothing moves.

The only permanent and low-pollution solution is to switch all our vehicles to electric motors powered by locally-collected renewable energy.

Consequently we need to move to 100 per centrenewable energy as fast as possible.

Let’s hope our federal government will grasp this urgent need and give up its opposition to renewable energy.

DIVORCE RATERodney Croome disputes the high divorce rate figures for same sex married couples that I presented in my letter (Adv., Oct 1).

The source of my figures was a booklet written by Shimon Cowan, son of former Governor General of Australia, Sir Zelman Cowan, titled Homosexuality, Marriage and Society.

I recommend this excellent, informative booklet to anyone wishing to participate in the same sex marriage debate.

John Fry, Port Sorell

ACCUSATIONSTo the people who called the RSPCA and made accusations against innocent animal owners and their so called bad treatment of animals.

You not only wasted a critically needed resource of an inspector and his time, you also made yourselves look like total fools.

In fact a person who makes a false, misleading, or vexatious report or otherwise makes a report not in good faith will be made liable to an offence. (Taken from RSPCA website)

Pity we can’t prove it was you.

Bras off for a good cause

TALKING POINT: The town of Merriwa is home to the “bra fence”, which is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month.LADIES across the Upper Hunter are hanging their undergarments out in full display to raise awareness for breast cancer in October.
Nanjing Night Net

The small town of Merriwa is home to the “bra fence”, which encourages locals, and passers-by, to hang up a bra and donate to the McGrath Foundation as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This is the second year the community has had the fence on display, along the Golden Highway coming into Merriwa from the west.

“Everyone has always got on board with fundraising for Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” organiser Sheree Kelly said.

“So, with the fence proving successful in 2015, we brought it back.

“This is a very important foundation to get behind because the fundraising we’re doing with the bra fence all goes straight to the McGrath Foundation to support breast cancer care nurses.

“It’s imperative to us to support these nurses, particularly as many of them are from rural areas.

“The idea of the fence came to a group of us one night.

“And, it attracted a lot of attention last year with many people leaving a bra with their postcode and a message dedicated to a loved one effected by breast cancer.”

More than 16,000 new cases of breast cancer have been diagnosed in Australia in 2016, accounting for 12.3 per cent of all new cancers diagnosed.

“Last year we raised $500, so this time we have set a goal of $700,” Ms Kelly said.

“We are calling for everyone to get behind the cause, go have a look at the fence, hang up a bra and donate.”

Ms Kelly also wished to express her thanks to Bob and Bev Telfer, who own the fence, for allowing the bra fence to continue and for maintaining the area.

Crows’ gain

TOUGH: Tom Stapleton goes hard at it with Redan’s Callum CurrieBeaufort has acquired the services of Ballarat Swans onballer Tom Stapleton for the 2017 Central Highlands Football League season.
Nanjing Night Net

In acoup for the Crows, the toll will be equally felt at the Swans as the young group loses one of its key play makers.

Stapleton has played all of his football at Ballarat, but some strong connections withBeaufort proved the catalyst in the move.

Beaufort football manager Phil Crouch expected Stapleton to play across half-back and float into the midfield to utilize his two key attributes – precise ball-use and strength in the contest.

“I think we need a bit more drive off half-back, someone who can use the footy pretty well – he’ll do that,” Crouch said.

“With the connections he’s got, friendships with a lot of our boys, it seemed a pretty good fit.

“When it gets a bit wet during the middle of winter, he’s a nice strong body to have over the ball. Which I think on those wet days he’ll be a pretty good player as well as his great skill level.Plus if he goes into the midfield -we’ve got guys that are very good in the contested situation -but we were a bit on the small side, Stapes (Stapleton) should help us there.”

Stapleton will play under new Beaufort coach Rohan Brown, who takes the reins after two years as assistant coachfollowing the Crows’ succession plan.

The club believes it still has a bit of work to do in order to press beyond its first-final exits of the past two seasons and is hopeful that Stapleton, along with its promising young talent which saw Beaufort take out the under-18 premiership, can take it deeper into September.

“He’s been really loyal to Ballarat but I think he’s just after a change of scenery and to reinvigorate his footy.With the new points system, we’re probably looking at just a couple of recruits.

“We’ve still got a fair way to go to try and push up the ladder and go deeper into finals, but that’s our challenge, which we haven’t been able to do the last couple of years.

“Our juniors won the flag last year so we expect there will be two or three that might come up and help us as well.We’ll have a fair bit of improvement from within, we’ve got a fairly young group.”
