Ula means sea jewel, so it’s no surprise that this beach club’s majestic energy derives from what Ras Al Khaimah is known for: peace and tranquility, the sea, desert, and mountains. This oasis of calm is located on the grounds of the newly opened Movenpick Hotel & Resort, Al Marjan Island Ras Al Khaimah. Short of a 50-minute drive from the center of Dubai, ULA is the perfect spot for a self-care Saturday or Sunday; whether you’re having...

Many of the world’s rarest and most fascinating creatures can be found across the UAE’s numerous swish animal parks and sprawling reserves, and also roaming in the wild.   Those who take a moment to explore are treated to enchanting sights such as turtles and dolphins swimming in the clear waters of Arabian Gulf, gazelles scampering across urban golf courses and the Arabian camel, the most iconic of all the Middle East’s creatures, meandering through the...

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that can be traced back to the Vedas, the oldest text in ancient India produced between 1500 and 500 BC. However, some scholars think they were mentioned even earlier. Part of Hindu and Buddhist traditions, chakras are believed to be spinning disks of energy. There are said to be seven chakras running along the spine to the top of the head, and that these are linked to our nerve centers,...

Mohammad Al Shehhi remembers it as though it were yesterday, the moment he stepped into a wrestling ring and felt as though he finally belonged.  Honing his skills, perfecting his performance and losing himself to a roaring crowd inspired the 28-year-old to turn his hobby into something bigger — facing his mental health demons in the process. “Behind every Superman is a Clark Kent and behind every cape is vulnerability,” says Al Shehhi, who was...

An orange sun splits across the African plains as the king of the jungle prowls through the wilderness, his magnificent black mane glimmering in the morning rays. Suddenly he whips his head in our direction, his nostrils flaring dangerously as our eyes lock with the predator in our midst. “I’m not actually king of the Pride Lands,” he growls. “Though I should be by right.” The lion in question is none other than Scar actor...

Growing up in a Mediterranean household no meal was complete without a large glug of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), be it drizzled on a salad or to lightly fry fish or meat. It’s how my parents and grandparents explained their youthful glow. But then, in the early 1990s British TV chef Anthony Worrall Thompson seemingly started us believing that cooking with olive oil was dangerous. As such, along with most households, we made the...

I have a knack for social experiments. And so when I announced to a group of my male friends from the UAE and broader Arab region that I was seeking a therapist for my mental health, I was conducting one. The response? An awkward silence that filled the room. Another Movember is upon us, a month that has gone far beyond growing a mustache for prostate cancer to raise awareness for men’s whole health. Still, many of...

In 2016, concerned about the lack of opportunities and visibility for people of determination, Rosy Ahmed decided to launch an inclusive talent showcase for people of determination. Six years later, she’s running the UAE’s largest inclusive talent show, F.A.M.E. (Fashion Art Music Entertainment).  “My daughter Hana was my inspiration,” Rosy told Livehealthy. “She had a lot of talents that I didn’t even know about. She was good at art, good at dancing. The more I spoke to teachers...

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 422 million people across the globe are living with diabetes. Unfortunately, the UAE has one of the world’s highest rates, with Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi estimating that one in five adults has some form of the disease, and that cases will double by 2040. A long-term condition that affects the body’s ability to produce insulin and remove glucose from the bloodstream, diabetes can lead to heart disease, organ...

When it comes to pampering, relaxation and recovery, we pay the most attention to our face and body, but often forget our feet. That’s hardly fair, when they work so hard to bear our weight and take us everywhere. With so many people doing 30 minutes of movement daily as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, it’s a good time to remind everyone that recovery is as much a part of part of every fitness...
