Better sleep for anxiety sufferers

Now that the heatwave's broken, many of us are looking forward to more sleep. Those sticky, still nights are behind us, right? We may even be looking forward to - whisper it - electric blanket season.

This post on better sleep for anxiety sufferers has been in my drafts for a couple of months as there didn't seem any point while the entire country was moaning about the heat. When we got back from our holiday in Crete, I made a decision to sort my sleep, something I had thought might happen naturally during a week of relaxation. But when it didn't? Here's what I tried.

How to exercise with an injury

Just before Christmas, I wrote a post about how I'd found a love of exercise. In that way the universe sometimes does when it's got half an ear on what you're saying, I woke up on New Year's Eve with the most incredible pain in my leg. I could barely walk.

On the day of recording we talked for hours about issues around parenting autistic children – what it’s like, the tough bits, and also how those around you talk about it.

Inspired by... / 10 Charlie Fowler of Magic Organic Apothecary

Today, I'm interviewing Charlie Fowler - the brains behind MOA (Magic Organic Apothecary), one of my favourite green skincare companies. I think I first found out about MOA a few years back thanks to a sample in a Lionheart goodie bag. Since then, I've become pretty much obsessed with these incredible products thanks to their intense fragrance, magic results and beautiful packaging. And the story behind the company is just as magical...

Why I’m a Bupa Health Assessment convert

This glorious weather we’ve been having has meant no one is in the house and everyone is in the garden, all the time. It’s great – screens are off (as well as tops) and the sound of footballs thunking around the yard is probably annoying the neighbours as much as our endless (vegan) barbecues.
