It’s trendy in some circles in Great Britain to refer in derogatory terms to any SUV as “Chelsea Tractors”, Chelsea being a Royal Borough of London and one of the more premium zip codes in the country, populated by lots of lovely ladies with spiffy looking, private school-educated and well-groomed children with names like Lilibeth, Humphrey, Geeta and Vladimir, often with a title thrown in. Although the titles have morphed like the population from Viscount and Earls to oligarchs and maharajahs.

For more healthy tips see www.naomis.kitchenHealthy snacks on the go Have you ever experienced “hanger”? It’s the result of hunger meeting anger and usually occurs if you skip a meal, which causes a drop in blood sugar. Time flies at a tradeshow and hanger is a common problem, which often causes unhealthy emergency binge snacking. Like I mentioned previously with the water tips, plan ahead and pack a snack. Personally I love Medjool dates as their natural sugars give me the lift I need. Always balance your snacks to include a good source of fat and carbohydrates; the perfect and easy way to do this is to add a few nuts (6-8 either almonds, walnuts or pecans for example). Otherwise you can pick up some great snack bars. I love the Rawbites bars, which are bars made from raw ingredients (dates, nuts) and with a slight naturally flavouring (like cacao or cinnamon). You’ll find these at the well-stocked Dietetique Gourmande bio store at 7 avenue Saint Laurent. Body moves If you’ve had a heavy night of eating or drinking (or both!), a workout may not sound too appealing but I urge you to fight any resistance, put on your trainers and move your body. Exercise, even a simple walk, will boost your energy and restore your mood as it stimulates brain chemicals that make you feel happier and more relaxed. Luckily we have the most beautiful natural gym on our doorstep with coastal walks going toward either Menton (from the Monte-Carlo Country Club) or towards Cap d’Ail Plage Mala (from the car park at the end of the beach). You can tie in a business “walk meeting”, catch up with friends on foot or simply enjoy some alone time, which during a hectic work event can be most appreciated.
