give your brain a refresh

Remember the meme that said “Another night of staring at the big screen while scrolling through my little screen to reward myself for staring at the medium screen”? It’s scarily true. Our lives are dominated by screens and Google, which can mean our memories may not always feel as fresh as they once did. Hilda Burke, psychotherapist and author of The Phone Addiction Workbook, says that daily walks – during which we look up and really pay attention to our surroundings – will help our brains to reset after information overload. “Like a computer, they can overheat and need to power down,” notes Burke. “Taking regular breaks massively aids our ability to memorise things.” Picnic, anyone?

swimwear for every body

Michelle Li @himichelleli “Go with your gut when it comes to swimwear. If it feels good physically and emotionally, I would say that it’s a winner.” SWIMWEAR FOR Smaller busts Strapless or ruched styles look ace. Wired cups can add a boost (when it’s wanted) SWIMWEAR FOR Bigger busts Try a retro halter top for support, or a sporty tank style. Thick straps won’t dig in (so you’re free to soak up some rays) Lot te Williams @asos_lotte “I don’t have a naturally full cleavage, so I usually opt for a halter shape over a triangle, or a plunge instead of a balcony.” Lauren Nicole Coppin Campbell @laurennicolefk “Forget what you’ve heard about only wearing dark colours or avoiding stripes and fun prints. I love trying new styles and matching my swimsuit to my kimono.” SWIMWEAR FOR Curvy figures Bikini, one-piece…

it’s getting hot in here

The next time you find yourself stumbling over a simple work task when you should be flying through it, blame the roasting summer weather. An American medical journal* found that when heatwaves cause elevated indoor temperatures, our cognitive function is reduced, meaning our brain is working at a slower rate. So that explains our drop in productivity, then. Combat this by staying hydrated and investing in a decent fan – cool, well-ventilated rooms are the ideal environment for getting. It. Done.

from the editor

At the start of this year, we wanted to change the narrative around health, wellbeing and self-care with our groundbreaking February cover. The idea was to remind everyone that “wellness” isn’t one-size-fits-all, beauty is about individuality, and everyone deserves the right to follow their own unique path to feeling confident and strong. That’s why we’re excited to be part of Project Body Love – a campaign launched in conjunction with some of our sister magazine brands that hopes to change the way we think, feel and speak about our bodies. We want to celebrate self-expression, champion diversity and make sure every one of you feels represented, seen and loved across our pages. Many of us are at an all-time low when it comes to how we feel about our bodies and sense…
