words of wisdom from our contributors…

ANNA MATHUR ‘Life is a struggle between knowing what we need and being told what we want,’ writes therapist Anna Mathur. ‘I need to feel connected… Sometimes a text does the trick, but it never offers the quality connection of a proper catch-up over coffee.’ Anna offers tips for more balance on page 55 LUCY MANGAN ‘We are more at ease talking about almost anything other than money,’ author Lucy Mangan declares. ‘How do we break this absurd cycle? We begin by talking to our children. We literally change the conversation.’ Learn how to do that on page 50 HONEY LANGCASTER-JAMES ‘Slowing down gives you time to make stronger connections,’ says psychologist Honey Langcaster-James. ‘This is helpful if you are drawn to incompatible partners as it encourages you to be mindful of your choices.’ Find…

summer’s inner glow

Well, it’s been a summer like no other – again! The other day, I received an out-of-office email declaring that its sender was away ‘exploring the wilds of Kent’. Another friend explained that she had taken a train, a boat and a plane to reach her summertime haven, and she hadn’t even left the British Isles! So, if you’re perusing this issue from somewhere rather different to your usual holiday destination, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty to warm you up and inspire you right here. First, learn how slowing down can turn up the heat in your love life on page 36. It’s a homage to taking things easy, and the perfect antidote to the instant swipe left or right culture that was becoming the accepted way to find love. If…

Star letter COUNT ON ME Thank you for your Dossier on intuitive wisdom (July). Just at the right time, while contemplating and overthinking (your psychological test was spot on) which route to take in my life and career, I came across ‘Find your spark’. What can I say but wow! It meant so much and resonated more than any article I have read for a long time. I felt heard. My intuition kicked in simply by reading the piece, let alone trying some of the strategies. My mind was clearer and my heart opened, so I could trust myself. Thank you for your wonderful and insightful magazine that brings wisdom, joy and clarity every month. Lisa Bailey BREAKING UP WAS THE MAKING OF ME Bianca Barton’s story, ‘Divorce settlement’ (June), resonated with me. My partner…

photo competition

When I was out walking, I saw this gap in the hedgerow that provided a perfect window on the fields beyond. It brought a lump to my throat because nature frames everything in my life and gives me purpose and pleasure. I feel incredibly lucky to have such beautiful places to walk, and more inspired than ever to help protect them. Wendy Seddon Would you like to showcase your photographic talent in ‘Psychologies’?

i’d like to thank…

my mother-in-law, Evelyn, I would like to thank you Evelyn, my mother-in-law of 46 years, for the support and love that you have given me. We have never had a cross word and that is because you are not judgmental and you see the good in all those you deal with. You help, you don’t interfere. You are patient, you are kind and I have been very fortunate that fate, via your son, brought us together. Thank you for all your help with your grandchildren (the boys) in the early years; for being there for them and for us. You are my friend. You are my role model. You are an amazing woman. Thank you for being in my life. This month’s gratitude letter, star letter and chosen photo win a free copy of…
