    THE SCIENCE OF WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR SUNCREAM EVERY DAY (INCLUDING UNDER YOUR MASK!)

    This year has presented us with quite a few new habits to get used to; more diligent hand-washing (although we’d hope you were doing that one before!), social distancing, and – of course – the wearing of face coverings in confined spaces to help protect others from COVID-19’s spread. But that still leaves all of the other health-supporting habits you... Read More

    WHY VALERIAN IS KEY TO A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP

    Difficulties with getting to sleep are among the most prevalent health and wellness issues of our age; it is thought that about a third of Britons will suffer from insomnia at some point in their lives.

    WHAT IS SEROTONIN?

    Frequently referred to as the body’s “happy” or “feel-good” chemical, serotonin actually has a broad range of roles beyond its contribution to wellbeing and happiness. Serotonin is certainly key to mood regulation, with normal levels of this neurotransmitter or hormone helping to ensure you remain happy, calm, focused and emotionally stable. But it would also be selling serotonin short to... Read More

    ASK AN EXPERT: DOES THE FOOD I EAT AFFECT MY SLEEP?

    What we eat and drink in the day has a huge effect on how well we sleep. Unfortunately for many of us we get into a bit of a catch 22. The biggest reason for insomnia is stress… And here lies the Catch 22:   the more stressed we are, the worse we sleep, and the worse we sleep, the... Read More

    7 EASY WAYS TO BECOME A MORNING PERSON

    The old trope of the ‘night owl’ versus the ‘lark’ is a persistent one, partly because it is rooted in a degree of truth.

    THE 7 BENEFITS OF A MEDITERRANEAN DIET AND LIFESTYLE

    Given that it has been one of the most historically acclaimed diets since the 1960s, it is especially striking that the oft-cited “Mediterranean diet” isn’t really a diet at all, at least in the sense of comprising a single set of agreed-upon rules and restrictions. And clearly, it isn’t a ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ trend. What it essentially is, is... Read More

    ASK AN EXPERT: HOW DOES STRESS AFFECT MY IMMUNE SYSTEM?

    The reason why stress affects us so much is that our body really hasn’t changed much in 60,000 years. Cortisol is a stress hormone produced in the adrenal glands (little glands that sit on top of the kidneys) which are hard wired to the body’s ‘fight or flight’ survival response. 60,000 years ago this would’ve been essential to either fight...
