GIFT GIVING TIPS AND ETIQUETTE BY DR FRANCA.​ 4th December 2016.

​How do you choose just the right gift for someone special? First ask about the person's interests, hobbies, passions, etc.  Consider their personality.  Are they practical, whimsical, organised, carefree, casual, formal, a prankster, etc.  The answers to these question will help you create a gift giving profile which  will help you to narrow your gift choices.  





















DR. FRANCA'S TIPS ON ON GOOD EATING ETIQUETTE WHILE DINNING OUT. 

​27th november 2016

  • Order  foods that can be eaten with a knife and fork.  Finger foods are best left for informal dinners.
  • Do not drink too much alcohol when dinning out. It is distasteful and one can  get drunk.
  • Sit up straight at the table.
  • ​Keep your hands on your laps or resting on the table.  Do not lean on the table.  
  • ​Do not season your food before you have tasted it.
  • Keep your knife and fork together when you have finished or have had enough to eat.
  • Do not blow on the food if it is hot. Let the soup or whichever food cool to the temperature that you can comfortably eat it.
  • Do not talk with a mouth full of food.
  • Tear out the piece of bread you want to eat, butter it and then eat it. Repeat the process until the bread is finished.
  • Engage in mild conversation that is pleasant.
  • Do not draw your drinks sip them.

30 minutes walk a day keeps the doctor away

Don’t get left out, exercise yourself into good life

It is difficult for most of us to be active enough these days. In earlier generations, physical exercise was a part of normal everyday life.

Now for many of us it is all too easy to jump in a car rather than walk or we simply seem to be just too busy to exercise.

Health experts advise that regular exercise such as brisk walk or some sort of mild indoor activities can improve our health and keep the Doctor away.

So what are the benefits of being more active?

More energy
More stamina
More happiness
A lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke
Reduced risk of cancer of the bowel
Greater self confidence
Relief from stress and depression
A better shape and appearance
Stronger muscles
A lower risk of osteoporosis (thinning of bones)
Lower blood pressure
A higher level of the ‘good cholesterol’ (HDL Cholesterol)

In fact, moderate exercise such as tennis, dancing, squash, golf or a brisk walk for 30 minutes, five days a week, can reduce your chances of developing coronary heart disease.

If you are unlucky enough to have a heart attack, if you have kept yourself fit you are twice as likely to survive. Look after your health now to enjoy life longer.
