Buy any pair of eyeglasses these days, and the optician will ask if you want a blue-light film to block out certain wavelengths of light. But is that enough? And what about versions that go further, with yellow, red or amber lenses? The American bio-hacker, Dave Asprey, is rarely seen without his orange-lensed TruDarks, which the company he owns promises are like noise-cancelling headphones for your eyes.  But are these glasses, which enthusiastic reviewers on...

The UAE is a fantastic place to live. It offers an easy lifestyle, multiple career opportunities and, for a good part of the year, an absolutely perfect climate.  However, at this stage of summer, many of us are starting to get tired of the constant heat and humidity. It’s not uncommon to find yourself longing for pleasantly cool winter evenings, or even fantasizing about the sensation of a heavy downpour in the temperate-zone.  However, if...

Seva Table is tucked away behind Seva Experience, which is tucked away behind Jumeirah Center.  Yet everyone seems to know about this little “hidden gem”; staff were turning away would-be diners even on a recent weekday lunch. A few things you need to know: Everything in this cafe is plant-based and “free from” gluten, dairy and cane sugar, GMO and plastic. There are numerous nut, garlic and onion-free options too. Everything is made on-site, and...

I’ve been planning to book a session with Nir Levi, who visits Dubai’s Seva Experience wellness center from his home base in Paris, for years now. Something always got in the way.  But as he would say, I finally went this summer because, well, that’s just when I was meant to go.  He wouldn’t mean that in the woo-woo, spiritual bypassing way of the faux-zen wellness warrior we are all so tired of. I know...

The list of where you can hang out with your dog on a day off – or even a day on – is getting longer all the time. There’s even an app for it: Flopster, which brings the UAE’s pet-loving community together, tells everyone where dogs and people can hang out together and has some zx great images of dogs having a great time across the emirates.  Of course there are golden rules to follow...

Gyms and yoga studios in Dubai have been given the go-ahead to reopen after more than two months of enforced closure, but with a long list of strict guidelines in place, some are moving faster than others to welcome back their clients. Among the instructions released by Dubai Sports Council on Tuesday, May 26 for opening the following day, sports and fitness establishments must:   keep to 50 percent capacity  ensure staff and customers wear masks...

The path from mechanical engineer to kitesurfing instructor is not a particularly well-trodden one. But in 2014, Amer El Dandachli set off down that road and it ended, as most do, at the ocean. Lebanese-born El Dandachli quit his 9-5 life and eventually set up Kite N Surf Dubai in 2016. Now, his days are spent on the waves.  Kite N Surf operates across the UAE, teaching kitesurfing at Kite Beach (of course) and at...
