After Hours HEALTH


STRESS- BUSTING TIP OF THE MONTH


Get fit together


IF YOU’RE STRESSED at work and that lonely gym visit isn’t doing much to mitigate the feeling, it’s time to team up. New research published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found that working out with others helps lower stress by more than a quarter. (The study involved a weekly 30-minute strengthening aerobic-and-weights class.) It also notably improves quality of life. Researchers found that after just 12 weeks of group exercise, study participants reported a stress reduction of 26.2%, as well as an uptick in their quality of life in three areas: mental (12.6%), physical (24.8%) and emotional (26%). — Martha Beach


How I Find Balance


Don Nishio, 63, partner and leader of the Japanese business services group, Manning Elliott LLP, Vancouver OUR WORK HERE IS SEASONAL, so I work about half my normal hours in the summer. I try to avoid rush hour, as I live in North Vancouver and it’s a zoo every


morning and aſternoon. I leave for the office at nine and work to seven at night. My firm gives me the ability to log in and work from anywhere, so even if


I take time off, I’m connected. I check my emails most evenings; I may work for an hour or two at night. This approach buys me the freedom to go away and do the things that I want to do and still keep up on things. Once or twice a year I go to Japan for business. I enjoy that because I used to


live there — I love the food and the camaraderie. I’ve always played sports; I still play hockey in a senior men’s league at the


North Shore Winter Club and at a weekly game at Britannia Rink. We play every Wednesday morning at seven year-round. I’ve been playing hockey with some of the same guys for 39 years. Our group has an annual Christmas breakfast where we raise money for charity: [in 2017] the total should pass $400,000. I ski 20 to 25 days each winter, do some bike riding in the summer and golf 30 to 40 rounds a year. I also love fly-fishing. I have a friend who has a cabin north of Kamloops, BC, and my buddies and I get invited up there a few times a year. I find fly-fishing to be very meditative: all you’re thinking about is how to catch this fish and you totally forget about the rest of life. — As told to Kerry Banks


56 | CPA MAGAZINE | JANUARY 2018 While you were sleeping


WE KNOW THAT GETTING a good night’s sleep does wonders for our memory. Recent research from the University of York in the UK, however, looked specifically at sleep’s role in creating adaptable memory. In the study, two groups were asked to memorize where words belonged on a screen, then recalled their appropriate places later. One group then slept for 90 minutes while the other remained awake, and both repeated the test. Locations recalled by the sleep group were more accurate than the group that stayed awake. Researchers concluded that while we sleep, our brain strengthens old and new memories so we can adapt our knowledge for the future. — MB
