Change can be so revitalising, bringing new energy and excitement into your life. It can also be really, really hard. A lot of the time, it’s both at once.

Sometimes it’s a change you’ve chosen – a goal you want to achieve, a new direction to explore. Sometimes it’s a challenge life has just thrown at you, forcing you to find the strength and resourcefulness to adapt. Either way, you learn and grow, and it makes you who you are.

For this issue of be. magazine, we’re exploring changes of all kinds. A few things you’ll find inside:

Food – Break out of a ‘diet’ mindset, learn how to feed your gut flora, discover easy ways to refresh your diet, and try lots of delicious recipes – from avocado tacos to Thai coconut prawns to kiwi popsicles.

Exercise – Fall in love with fitness, explore the benefits of HIIT, try a simple but effective core workout, and get tips from Michelle Bridges and Sally Fitzgibbons.

Wellbeing – Discover the science of habits, learn about changes to your vision, delve into life as a new parent, and be inspired by magical travel destinations.
