let’s sleep on it…

Sleep. It’s a source of anxiety for so many of us. Am I getting enough? Should I be going to bed earlier? How can I switch off my busy mind when my thoughts are keeping me awake?

Flavour friends We often associate pairing food and drink with red or white, but with one in five of us regularly choosing a non-alcoholic option, it’s time to think outside the bottle.

Feast Box, a recipe box subscription, have released a whole host of tips for finding the perfect drink to sip alongside your supper. Our fave need-to-knows? Choose a sweet drink to balance out a salty dish, and never underestimate something fizzy – the bubbles wake up our taste buds and increase our perception of fragrant flavours.

oh happy days

1 Keep an eye on the clock. Recent research has found that 2:17pm is the time we feel most tired, which can impact our mood and productivity.
