Download your free papers Recently, in conversation with a group of lovely women who I don’t know very well (our shared bond being waiting for our children to finish various sporting activities) but with whom I look forward to chatting each week, the topic turned to hormones. As we each shared our monthly ups, downs and sometimes very downs, we were surprised to learn how similar our experiences were. We shared stories; we shared advice. We felt comforted to know that we were not alone. Afterwards, it struck me how crazy it is that we don’t have these conversations more often. And while I’d always thought I’d listened to and looked after my body, there was so much more about our hormonal phases to know. In our hormonal health special this issue (page…

Photo comp winner! Last month, the theme of our Instagram photo competition was ‘green’. Thank you for all of your wonderful entries – we loved seeing the green hues that inspire you! Our winner is Melissa (@marrymecincy) and her brill pic of a koala on a trip to Australia that challenged her. “Aside from being cute, this photo also represents overcoming fears to live life to the fullest,” she says. “Despite a big ol’ fear of flying, I recently spent 17 straight hours in the air to go to Australia. The goal of petting a koala was one of the things that helped to get me excited for the journey!” Melissa wins a nature box from themed subscription box service Moi-Même, filled with gifts that have come from, been inspired by…

Women of invention Machines, medicines, aircraft, central heating… women have invented things in a staggering variety of fields, often working in obscurity. In our mini series, we shine a spotlight on a female inventor who changed the world. In the 1940’s, Hungarian-American engineer Maria Telkes worked for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Solar Energy Conversation Project (try reeling off that job title at parties), where she developed a house that used glass and metal panels to trap the sun’s heat. It was then funnelled into storage bins in the walls full of sodium sulfate. On sunny days, the salt melted and absorbed the heat, then on cold days the salt cooled and recrystallised, keeping the house warm purely with the absorbed heat. This started the innovation for capturing and deploying solar energy. Maria…

I narrow my focus. When you’re out in the field you have to have confidence in your own abilities – it can be intense with all the spectators watching you, as well as the media and cameras. I make sure to work harder in training than I do in the actual game, so I can go in fully prepared. We also have something called a ‘one ball mentality’, where you switch off from the ball that’s just gone and focus on the ball that’s coming next. It’s all about breaking the game down into simple things. You can apply it to real life, too. We can get distracted by trying to do too many tasks at once, but by concentrating on you, rather than what’s going on around you, you can…
