So pleased to see you again. We hope you’ve had a relaxing summer with your nearest and dearest (while we’ve been busy creating this issue for you). Whether you managed to get away from it all or not, “wishing you were elsewhere won’t improve your days,” says our columnist Ali Binns. “Learn to live the best life you can where you are now,” she recommends on page 36. Whatever you have filled your days with this summer, it’s spending time with friends and family that really counts and makes a true difference to our wellbeing and happiness. Throughout this issue, we consider and celebrate those people: the faces behind the stories, the how-tos, the recipes and the adventures. For without learning from each other – sharing experiences, understanding and empathising and…

good news!

Embrace your mistakes Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that making a mistake is ok. Mistakes are proof that we are trying. In fact, it’s all part of the human experience. Leadership expert Martin Webster is now teaching companies that making mistakes is better for their businesses. He explains, “Let’s face it. No one achieves anything without making many mistakes along the way. Making mistakes makes us uniquely human. It’s how we learn.” Of course it’s not just at work that mistakes happen, we make them at home as well. And that’s ok. Being honest about our mistakes, not fearing the consequences, is what allows us to be creative and make new discoveries. “When things don’t go to plan... problems are uncovered and put to rights sooner,”says Webster. ”So a mistake isn’t failure; it’s…

take good care of yourself

LITTLE AND OFTEN Set aside grand gestures and ‘this is the new me’ style plans. The ‘old’ you is more than fabulous enough and incorporating a few tiny self-care ideas into your day will help you to feel it too. You’re a caring mother, a loyal friend, a valuable employee and a loving partner. You live and lead passionately, devoting most of your time to those around you. It’s what everyone loves and admires about you. Yet your caring nature and constant giving can leave you feeling drained and overloaded if you don’t save a little bit of that compassion for a certain VIP... Self-care is one of our most basic human needs yet it can (and often does!) get bumped o" the to-do list in place of more urgent and important tasks.…

30 day self care plan

DAY 1 Plan to succeed Decide on a time and place to spend 5-10 minutes a day on your self-care over the next 30 days. Schedule the time in now and honour it. Pop it in the diary, set a reminder and make it a date! DAY 2 Be positive Write down three positive words affirming who you are. For instance: “I am generous, brave and smart.” Choose words that describe you and your unique awesomeness. DAY 3 Eat well Give your body exactly what it needs to function well. Find a new healthy recipe and make a delicious dinner tonight. DAY 4 Get outside Get outside and enjoy the green. Jennifer Cuttriss from Geoje, South Korea, suggests turning off your tech as you reconnect to nature: “I like to switch off, get out of the monotony…

why don’t we talk anymore?

While staying at my parents recently, I made an intriguing discovery. Tucked away on a bookshelf in my old teenage bedroom, I found an old diary from 1992, written by my 16-year-old self. I was both horrified and amused at this moody, hormonal blast from the past, who was foul to her parents, grappled with word processing lessons at school and lusted after Jean Claude Van Damme. But the thing that really stood out to me was how much time I spent talking to my friends. For hours on end. My friends knew everything about me and I knew everything about them. I might have grunted incoherently at my parents and teachers, but I was in constant communication with my contemporaries. These days, the majority of my conversations take place over…
