Careless

Do you ever find yourself getting annoyed with people who are careless? Depending on your tolerance levels, you may find yourself surrounded by rich pickings to feel irritable with people who... Put drinks in silly places only to get knocked over... Who don’t look behind them when they’re reversing.... Or perhaps who are careless with...

Summer sleep guide, part II

With summer finally here we’re getting in quick with our Summer sleep guide before the warm weather can do another disappearing act. In part I, we looked at ways to tackle sleep enemy number one: allergies. And here in part II we’re focussing on what ought to be the most obvious sleep enemy that arrives...

Summer sleep guide, part I

Believe it or not, the longest day of the year has already been and gone. For anyone who doesn’t love waking up early on light mornings, this would ordinarily be a relief to think of darker mornings ahead, but the duller start to the summer didn’t exactly see many mornings of blazing early morning sunlight!...

Second nature

There’s nothing artificial about sleep in its purest sense, it’s one of the most instinctive and innate rituals in our lives and it fulfils our needs at such a fundamental level that our bodies simply can’t survive without it.  Messing with our sleep on a long term basis has been linked from everything to contributing...

Slide

Sliding is fun.  Why else is sliding associated with some of our favourite pastimes. As kids, who didn’t love the big slide at the playground? And a love of sliding sees millions of people pack up skis and snowboards and fly off in search of snow each winter, or stay home with their sledges and...

We’re thinking about stillness in body and mind, sitting or lying still without occupying our mind with a task or visual data. We’re willing to bet you don’t have many, if...

Psssst…

There’s a secret to having a great day.  Not everyone knows about the secret, and we can even still have a great day without even knowing or understanding the secret. But, once we’ve been let into the secret, it can unlock change. The secret to having a great day is great sleep.  Only having first...

I woke up like this

We’ve all seen the gorgeously uber-cool people wear t’shirts emblazoned with this slogan or posted on their Instagram. It’s one of those attitude statements that does the rounds from time to time and is mostly used ironically - although for some narcissists, not always. But what if we really could wake up looking that good?...

One for Dad

How would you describe the best thing about your dad? We’re willing to bet it’s not a characteristic that’s represented by the limited selection images gracing the Father’s Day card selection! Our dads, grandads, step-dads and those who are father figures in our lives have a special place in our hearts and have an impact...
