This month, we’ve been thinking about how we overcome obstacles – both big and small. We so often give ourselves a tough time when a solution proves elusive or a task remains incomplete. So ingrained in me is the saying: ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’ that I find often myself repeating it (to myself and my children) without considering what it really means. “We tell ourselves we can make changes if we just try a little harder,” writes Harriet Griffey in her column on page 18, “but it might be time to try a different approach instead.” One of my ongoing obstacles in recent weeks has been helping one of my children with their maths. I’ll be honest; it’s not my forte. ‘Helping’, in this instance, involves…

Photo comp winner! Last month, the theme of our Instagram photo competition was ‘wildlife and pets’. Thank you for all your entries – we had a really tough time choosing our shortlist this month! Our winner is Rachel (@nutritionalbeauty) and her selection of gorgeous photos of her curious kitten Blue. “Blue came into my life when he was just six weeks old,” she writes. “He was a rescue kitten who loved to be outside and in amongst the flowers and plants. I was struggling to have a baby and discovered I was pregnant a month after I adopted Blue – he was my little good luck charm. He was sadly taken from us when my son William was only a few weeks old – curiosity got the better of him. But…

good news!

Power to the people Financial crashes, political ups and downs and fake news have made the world a bit turbulent of late. But thanks to Instagram and our new-found obsession with protest images and photos, as well as the viral nature of social media sharing, visual activism has never been stronger in the face of it all. Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-18 is an inspiring new exhibition at the Design Museum, London (until 12th August 2018), which examines the pivotal role of graphics in milestone events such as the election of Barack Obama, the worldwide Occupy movement, Brexit and Trump’s presidency. Themes of power, protest and personality are explored, including the 2015 Je Suis Charlie marches in France, demonstrating the important role played by graphic design in creating solidarity and…

things to do to live your life well…

6 APRIL Embrace the trainer trend – it’s National Walk to Work Day. Walking is not only great for your physical health, but it’s also a lovely way to start your morning. Swap a travel pass for pavement, relax and enjoy your surroundings. Research also shows that walking inspires creative ideas – arrive at work ready to wow in that morning meeting. 13 APRIL Friday 13th might be unlucky for some but it turns out that 13 used to be considered the luckiest number. This harks back to pagan days, when the year was divided into 13 months, in accordance with a woman’s menstrual cycle. Friday the 13th was considered to be Goddess Day – turn your luck around and channel your inner goddess. 30 APRIL Today is National Honesty Day in the US. The…

the charity founder

Rachel Wright, 44, is a veterinary nurse and founder of the Tree of Life For Animals (TOLFA) charity in Rajasthan, India. She lives in India with husband Annu and their seven-year-old daughter. I keep my meditation simple. Running a charity in a country such as India is incredibly challenging. My job entails not only being ultimately responsible for the 600 animals we have at any one time who are under veterinary treatment, but also managing a staff of around 50, as well as making sure that we have enough funds to keep the charity going. I try to meditate every day but there are always time constraints. So I keep it simple and do one which focuses on my breathing. I inhale and exhale, saying in my mind: ‘Rise and fall.’ By…
