With a new year approaching, we’ve been thinking about how we move from one year to the next – and about the accompanying pressure to reinvent ourselves. “New Year, New You!” declare the headlines, encouraging us to make resolutions to lose weight, get a bigger house, earn more money, turn into somebody else... Of course, we all want our next year to be a happy one. It is natural that this sense of a new beginning inspires us to liberate ourselves from old habits or unsatisfactory areas of our lives and plan for bright days ahead, but there is a kinder, gentler way to make this happen for ourselves. “Taking stock one December, I reflected on what I was grateful for – and realised there was plenty to choose from,” writes…

Get naked! For many of us, the thought of baring all is terrifying, nevermind in winter. But it turns out that getting naked in front of strangers can actually give us more body confidence. A study by the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology showed that taking part in naturist activities and “being communally naked in the company of non-intimate others who have typically non-idealised bodies” can produce positive feedback about one’s own body. In other words, seeing others’ lumpy, bumpy bits makes us feel better about our own. Sleeping sans clothing is also good for your lady parts, as gynaecologists say that too-tight underwear can trap moisture, causing infections – so it might just be time to strip off to benefit both mind and body.

things to do to live your life well in january...

The third Monday of January is now recognised as the most depressing day of the year (Christmas credit card bills, diet hell, dark evenings – need we say more) but reinvent this year and do something nice for yourself instead. Read a book, go for a walk, take a bath. Make it about the ‘you’ and not the blue. ALL…

I’ve learned to pick my battles My job is fast-paced and demanding – no two days are the same. I have multiple projects on the go and manage multi-million pound budgets to deliver them. It is a lot of pressure and responsibility but I have learned to pick my battles. I can’t fix everything, so I stay true to what feels right at the time. Having kids has helped – I used to be a control freak but I’ve learned that sometimes ‘perfect’ isn’t necessary. I go to the headphone zone If I do feel like things are getting on top of me, I…
