Download your bonus papers This month has been a busy one for all of us here, and probably all of you reading this too (is there such a thing as a quiet month/week/day?). Summer colds, hay fever, unreliable commuter trains and, inevitably, deadlines have all come calling (or not, in the case of the trains). The result has been many conversations about stress, a lot of cups of tea and frequent uttering of the phrase: “Don’t worry, it’ll be fine!” (followed by nervous laughter). Because the truth is, we all need a bit of stress in our lives, and a little burst of adrenalin can feel good. “It’s what gets us up in the morning and keeps us motivated through the day,” writes nutritionist and wellbeing expert Christine Bailey in her…

good news!

Women of invention Machines, medicines, aircraft, central heating… women have invented things in a staggering variety of fields, often working in obscurity. In our new mini series, we’ll shine a spotlight on a female inventor who changed the world. This month – the inventor of modern ice cream! Before Nancy M. Johnson, making ice cream was hard work. All the ingredients had to be placed in a metal pot within a larger pot filled with crushed ice, then mixed by hand until frozen – a laborious process (though we bet it was a great arm workout). In 1843, Nancy revolutionised ice cream production with her genius idea of fixing a rotating paddle inside the pot to a handle outside the pot, which was cranked by hand. It mixed the ingredients more easily and…

things to do to live your life well in june & july…

ALL OF JUNE Be inspired by the amazing story of Tim Don, Olympian and triathlon World Champion who, last October, was hit by a truck when out training and broke his neck. Amazingly, he’s made a full recovery and has just run the Boston Marathon. On Running tells his inspiring story in a new documentary, available all month. www.on-running.com 9 JUNE Be sure to stock up on tonic for today is World Gin Day. A refreshing G&T is already one of our favourite sundowners, and now research has shown that gin could also be good for our health (in moderation, of course). Thanks to one of its main ingredients, juniper berries, it is said to fight infection and improve circulation. We say cheers to that! 21 JUNE Unroll your yoga mat – it’s International Yoga…

the detective inspector

I compartmentalise my life. I’ve always had the ability to switch off, which I know is lucky. When I’m at work, I’m 100% focused and it’s the same when I get home. In my job you can see some truly horrific and distressing things, but I’m always conscious not to dwell on it and remind myself that it’s work and not my life. One thing I always do is change out of my work clothes as soon as I get home. I think it’s good psychologically for switching off – I want to feel comfy and go straight into home mode. I break my day into little bits. I have a demanding job and a family and a house to run, so my life is pretty full on. To stay on top of…
