A clean break, part II

This week at Millbrook Beds we're in detox mode. Putting smoothies and raw juices aside however, we're focusing on what we're feeding our minds digitally rather than whether we need to lay off the mid morning biscuits.   In part I we considered how we perceive our digital habits, and whether these are indeed habits...

A clean break, part I

This week at Millbrook Beds we're in detox mode. Putting smoothies and raw juices aside however, we're focusing less on what we’re feeding our bodies nutritionally and more on what we're feeding our minds digitally.   When it comes to social media, most of us know enough to know that after a mediocre day, spending...

Seeing red

There's a good chance the next few weeks will have you seeing red. We don't mean in the metaphorical sense of feeling angry, we mean literally. Businesses, high street windows and advertising banners online and offline are already awash with deep reds with the arrival of Valentine's Day. If they haven't already, bunches of red...

Here to stay

These few weeks of the year are a boom time for holiday companies. In the lull of new year and bitterly cold weather, the walls can feel like they're closing in and we yearn for some form of escape. Holidays often signify our most pure form of escape. We may find temporary means to escape...

Triple whammy

If we can be sure of one thing about President Trump from his public persona and the anatomy of his presidency so far, it's that he doesn't do things by halves. Which is why, in spite of the controversy surrounding US essayist’s Michael Wolff’s recently published book Fire and Fury (an exposé into life behind...

A change of horse

A change of horse There's an old expression that says you 'don't change horses in the midstream' (of a race). In a broad sense, the phrase implies that it's a bad idea to change leadership or your adopted stance midway through something. Is it? Even in a short term sense, circumstances can and do change...

Break the fall

Ever feel like things are slightly off kilter and you can't quite seem to put your finger on the cause? When it comes to our sleep, it doesn't take for the kilter of many factors to change before our sleep begins to noticeably suffer. Lifestyle factors such as stress, alcohol and changes in our diet...

In tune

If you've ever been stuck next to someone singing out of tune, you'll know what an annoyance it can be. Perhaps someone in your household might have a habit of whistling or humming under their breath. This habit is sufficient in itself to niggle nerves, but as soon as the tone is lost or the...

First things first

1946 was a big year. In a post war Britain, everything was in flux. A nation transformed by war, there was an awful lot of things that just couldn't go back to being as they were before. All this meant that 1946 was a year for newness, for firsts. Amongst many firsts in 1946 was…...
