let’s try to find a good balance

It’s that time of the year when many of us come up with New Year’s resolutions and set ourselves the mission of doing more exercise, shifting a bit of weight, giving up a bad habit and generally becoming a new, improved, happier version of ourselves! Let’s face it, though – if you go on a hardcore diet, it’s almost inevitably doomed to fail. And if you push yourself to do an exercise you hate, it’s an absolute certainty that you won’t be doing it come spring! So, in this issue, we’re bringing you an exercise planner that will help you find the activity to suit you and your goals (page 82). We’re also highlighting the rise in ‘social prescriptions’ and the importance of finding a hobby that brings you joy (page…

Q. What’s your secret for a good night’s sleep? A. I write things down that are bothering me before bed – this helps me put them to the back of my mind until morning! DIANE KEY My way to get a good night’s sleep is to add a few drops of lavender oil and magnesium salt into a lovely hot bath. KAREN WILLIAMS It has to be single quilts! No more fighting over control and suffering with a heavy quilt when the night sweats hit. CLARE WILLIAMSON Don’t eat a meal too late before bed, don’t have your room too hot, and spend some time reading. Don’t get your screens out!

‘i’m squeezing every bit of joy out of life!’

Actor Hermione Norris is the epitome of laid-back chic when she arrives at the GH cover shoot. She’s completely make-up free, and is glowing with health and happiness. Friendly and unassuming, she has a very dry sense of humour and is clearly a woman’s woman. This month, she is back on our screens as Karen Marsden in the new series of Cold Feet, along with co-stars Fay Ripley, James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst and John Thomson. It will be the eighth series of the ITV comedy drama, which thrilled fans with its comeback in 2016 after 13 years off air.

hermione’s favourite things

WHAT ARE YOUR GUILTY PLEASURES? Chocolate, chips, crisps. And watching cookery programmes like Barefoot Contessa. THE LAST BOOK YOU READ? Circe by Madeline Miller. I binge read. There are periods when I don’t, then I’m completely consumed. THE LAST FILM THAT MADE YOU LAUGH? I really like The Heat. It’s old now but I really do enjoy watching Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy together. They are ace. THE LAST FILM THAT MADE YOU CRY? Molly’s Game, an Aaron Sorkin script. I cry at anything. Have a baby and then you never stop crying. YOUR SIGNATURE DISH? Roast chicken. With roast potatoes, bread sauce, little sausages and Brussels sprouts. Very comforting! FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION? India. The Himalayas. I’ve only been once but I’ve carried it with me ever since. I absolutely loved it. You can hear deafening silence in the Himalayas. FAVOURITE UK…
