why it’s time to lighten up!

Are you ready for spring? I know I am. In fact I’m ready for a fresh start all round. It’s about this time of year I emerge from my mental hibernation and start tidying in advance of early spring-cleaning. After the deluge of Christmas gifts and both daughters’ birthdays, we are often drowning in a sea of ‘stuff’ by the end of January. This always leads to a good clear-out and endless donations to charity shops, which is both beneficial to us and the good causes. We’ve also been doing some cosmetic work on our house over the winter, and I’m hoping by the time you read this I‘ll have unpacked all the boxes we have been living out of for what seems like a year, but which is, in…

meet our contributors

Bestselling author ISABEL ALLENDE has written 23 novels – her latest is A Long Petal of the Sea. She has also set up a foundation in memory of her daughter, to support women. On p63, she writes about meeting the Obamas. What makes your dog the perfect companion? I have two dogs, Dulce and Perla. Perla looks like a cross between a bat and a gargoyle – ugly but very smart. I’m definitely closer to dogs than to people – they don’t talk back and they’re forgiving! CHRIS MORLEY lives in Surrey where she horse-rides with her daughter Mia, grows organic veg, and tries to wear out her crazy cross-breed Louis, a seven-year-old Cocker-Collie. She writes for magazines, covering travel, gardening, sustainability and business, and reveals all about gap years on p42. What…

POSITIVE STEPS Please thank Diana O’Connor for opening her heart in My First Christmas as a Widow [January]. I’m glad that Diana and Christine are creating something so positive from their situations. Caroline, by email SLIMMING CLUBS We noticed an article on money saving in a recent issue where readers were advised to cancel slimming club memberships at Christmas to take advantage of New Year offers. We believe that to succeed in losing weight members need to be 100% committed. That means there is no benefit to ‘cancelling’ at any point of the year. Our doors to groups are open all year round and we’re proud of our promise to support our members 52 weeks a year!

davina ‘women in their 50s are now given a very different type of respect’

Can you believe it’s been almost 20 years since Davina McCall presented the first episode of Big Brother? And ever since the controversial hit show catapulted her to household fame in 2000, it’s felt like she’s been part of our extended family. Davina admits after so many years in ‘the biz’ she’s now landed in a very good place, saying, ‘People like Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield probably can’t take the train because they’ll end up getting hounded, but I do, and I just have nice chats with people!’ And, like the British public, the years have also been incredibly kind to Davina, now 52, whose age-defying looks can be attributed to her enviable youthful vigour – and being happy. Happiness is something she places great importance on these days. ‘There’s a great…

small changes big wins!

Whether we want to lose weight, reduce stress or find more time away from technology, it’s tempting to set unrealistic goals. We can’t run the London Marathon when we’ve never jogged further than the front gate, and we know we won’t really rise at dawn to meditate for an hour a day. To make good habits last, keep them simple. Focus on the easy and the enjoyable because a healthier, happier life is no more than 30 seconds away. Here are your steps to success. 1 STOP JUDGING To design new behaviours, you first need to stop judging yourself and embrace any mistakes as discoveries. Expert BJ Fogg understands it’s hard, especially if you have perfectionist tendencies, but self-blame is like a sledge slipping down old tracks on a snowy mountain. New…
