laugh more worry less!

“The next time anyone says our generation is past it, I’ll read them the riot act” What a laugh our readers lunch at The Langham, London, turned out to be. My colleagues who had been to our events before had told me to expect a lively bunch of guests, and of course I fully expected woman&home readers to be particularly vibrant. But nothing prepared me for the hilarious, fascinating and downright fun bunch I got to spend the afternoon with. Seriously, the next time anyone suggests to me that our generation is past it (sadly it still happens!), I will remember that occasion and read them the riot act. Surely the most inspiring women of all time were the suffragettes, and I would really like to draw your attention to our article…

what debbic did next...

If there’s one word that best describes Debbie McGee, it has to be inspiring. We meet at the crack of dawn in York, where she’s been appearing in panto twice a day, the first performance mere hours after her final dance with partner Giovanni Pernice – a foxtrot to Stevie Wonder’s Isn’t She Lovely – on Strictly Come Dancing . She admits that she’s exhausted, particularly after taking part in a local pub quiz the night before! “I’ve hardly slept at all recently but you only live once,” she says, and it’s nothing a sugary cup of tea (four sugars, to be precise) won’t fix. Debbie’s career began as a ballet dancer, but was abruptly halted when she was 19. While touring with the Iranian National Ballet Company in Tehran, she…

allison pearson   our brilliant new columnist on the modern midlife woman

“Women are programmed to mind about things. We have OCD of the heart” The best thing about publishing my first novel, I Don’t Know How She Does It – about super-stressed mum Kate Reddy – was all the hilarious emails and letters I got from readers sharing their stories. Nicky, who worked in sales, was just back at work after her second baby and feeling totally sleep-deprived. Over lunch with a client, Nicky felt herself closing her eyes and drifting off. Waking with a start she saw the man opposite putting a forkful of food into his mouth. Before she could stop herself, she asked in sing-song mummy manner, “Is that yummy in your tummy?” Then there was the guilty grandma. Jean confessed she was so shattered from acting as unpaid nanny to…

the benefits of boredom

“Taking time out brings curiosity and creativity” “Schedule in some precious headspace” When was the last time you were bored? Staring into space? It’s probably just before you got your first smartphone. In this age of endless emails, scrolling through Facebook and updating Instagram, boredom seems like an old-fashioned notion. In just over a decade – the first smartphone flickered to life in 2007 – boredom has become a thing of the past. Why does this matter? Because far from being a waste of time, an hour spent doing nothing is key to creativity, says Manoush Zomorodi, author of a new book, Bored and Brilliant: How Time Spent Doing Nothing Changes Everything. Zomorodi noticed that she suddenly had a burst of new ideas while on maternity leave, when she was endlessly pacing…
