This issue is all about letting go: freeing up space in our minds, our schedules, our homes, to leave more room for the good stuff – the thoughts, the people, the simple things that bring us joy. Paradoxically, this issue is also about holding on. Because while we can all benefit from letting go of unhelpful thoughts and worries (not to mention the physical stuff that weighs us down), letting go isn’t about stripping everything away. What I’ve learned this month is that nostalgia can be just as therapeutic as clearing out the clutter – as a way to reconnect with the passions and values of our past selves, and as a source of comfort – a pathway to a more carefree time. So once you have read Annika Rose’s gentle advice…

Protein is essential for your body to grow and repair, as well as maintain good health. If you’re not eating meat, fish, eggs and dairy products though, it can be hard for you to incorporate enough into your daily diet. That’s where Garden of Life can help. Garden of Life is fanatical about food – whether it’s making a vitamin, a probiotic, or a protein powder, real food is always the starting point.

good news*

Non-toxic nails We’ve blitzed our make-up bag of bad-for-us ingredients and swapped to natural skincare, but what about our nails?

The good news? Eco-friendly alternatives are available. Look for a ‘free’ or ‘3-free’ label, or switch to a non-toxic brand such as Zoya (zoya.com) or LVX (shoplvx.com). Brilliant badge We know that disabilities aren’t always visible on the outside and tube travel can be stressful enough without having to ask for a seat. The next time you’re commuting,…
