500 people from across the county heard about all the latest trends in nutrition, fitness and style tips on Thursday last at the Dawn Milk and National Dairy Council Ladies Lifestyle Evening.
Held in the INEC Killarney, the evening was a fantastic success raising €7,000 for the Donal Walsh Livelife Foundation and the Ian O’Connell Trust.
On arrival ladies were welcomed with a cookies and milk reception, and also received a goody bag on the night. The evening also included a fantastic raffle with some amazing prizes including a VIP Day at the Dawn Milk Ladies Day at the Killarney Races on Thursday, July 18, and two tickets to the Spice Girls concert in Croke Park in Dublin this summer.
The event commenced with advice on how to ‘Shape Up Your Nutrition’ with well-known dietitian and author Paula Mee, who sifted through the jargon and gave the audience practical tips and advice that works. One of Ireland’s most successful personal trainers and health blogger Nathalie Lennon gave lots of fitness and well-being advice. Nathalie also demonstrated exercises that could be completed at home with the assistance of MC Alan Finn of Radio Kerry.
Following the interval, style queen Celia Holman Lee revealed all her secrets in a Beauty and Lifestyle Q&A with MC Alan Finn. Celia also showcased a fabulous style segment with fashion from local Killarney boutiques MacBees, Scarlett Boutique and Weardrobe.
“We would like to thank everyone who attended the Ladies Lifestyle Evening and supported our two charities,” John O’Sullivan, General Manager, Dawn Milk said.
“The evening was a great success with lots of advice and tips from our guest speakers Paula Mee, Nathalie Lennon and Celia Holman Lee.”

Who’s in your circle?

Are you happy and where you want to be with your health, where you want to be financially or are you going through the motions each day, unsure of your purpose?

Are you supported by others when you’re struggling or only supported by others when things are going well?
Are you looking forward to the next five, 10, 20 years of your life?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, I encourage you to look around at the people you spend your time with. Your time is your most expensive asset. Your mind is your most expensive real estate.

With whom you spend your time, and those that you permit to impact your thoughts and decisions will have a great impact on your life.

From the outside looking in, our gym culture is the most difficult health benefit for others to understand.
Now more than ever all our brains are fed is chaos, division, selfishness and negativity. We can’t have that here. Those that thrive in that environment aren’t a good fit for us, and they won’t last long here. Either they’ll leave on their own, or we’ll tell them it’s time to go.

Years ago, when I was struggling with some people decisions (personally and business); one of my mentors told me something that continues to stick with me. It’s since been something I have said to people many times;
“The people that have helped you get to where you are may not be the same people that can help you get to where you want to go.”

Ask yourself these three questions;

* Who’s in your circle?
* Who do you need to start spending less time with?
* In order to get where you want to be, what kind of people do you need to start spending more of your time with?

Now it’s time to get to work. Start spending less time with those dragging you down. Start surrounding yourself with the people that won’t condone your behaviours that aren’t consistent with your goals, support your work ethic, help you to learn from your failures and will be excited to celebrate your successes.

When you are ready, we are here to help. Book your complimentary consultation by visiting our website www.activate.ie.

70 toddlers from Currow Play School have become Ireland’s littlest fundraisers as they stepped out to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

They took part in the Barnardos Big Toddle which this year has the theme of ’Community Helpers’.

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services.

“This year, Currow Play School turns 25 and we have been taking part in Barnardos Big Toddle since 2006, which is 18 years of toddling in aid of vulnerable children,” Catherine Fleming form Currow Play School said.
“Our toddle is a highlight for the children and the team every year. It’s fantastic to get the little ones involved in something so worthwhile at a young age, it’s always a great day of fun. Barnardos provides a huge number of services in communities across Ireland, but these can only continue with help from the public. The toddle runs throughout June so I would implore anyone with toddlers or wobblers at home to sign up for Barnardos Big Toddle supported by Pipin Pear today.”

Anyone wishing to take part can register today at www.barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.
