let’s get set, go!

The great thing about this time of year is that it’s a chance to push the reset button on your life. There’s a whole 12 months stretching ahead; a clean slate, where you can take stock and think about how you’d like to change things, improve them or try something new. That’s why we’ve made this issue all about easy ways to do just that, starting with the most important thing – you! If you want to lose a few pounds, there’s a super-easy diet (page 48), must-have wellbeing buys to keep you feeling tip-top (page 74), plus TV’s Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s five-minute health fixes (page 68).

‘getting older is a privilege isn’t it?’

Tamzin, 49, lives in London and the Cotswolds with her daughters Flo, 11, and Marnie, seven, and her boyfriend, personal trainer Tom Child, 28. MY BIG YEAR For me, this feels like a year of new beginnings. I turn 50 in November, and I’d like to go away for my birthday and wake up on a different adventure in a different place so it feels like a new and fresh start. There are so many things I want to do – write a children’s book, a play, a female-led TV pilot; learn to teach yoga, learn a bit more Italian… all those ridiculous things that all my life I’ve been saying ‘I want to do’. Turning 50, it feels like it’s now or never. I’ve always told myself that you should try to celebrate…
