Has lockdown affected your sleep in anyway? If the press releases I receive on a daily basis are anything to go by, it seems we’re in the middle of a sleeploss epidemic due in part to increased stress and anxiety brought on for many due to Covid and lockdown life.

Our special section this issue is all about sleep and is packed with great advice. The Sleep Diet (p52) looks at the relationship between our food and how well – or not! – we snooze. It contains some of the top foods for helping promote relaxation and sleep, as well as ones to avoid! Columnist Ruby Deevoy takes a look…

FILMS CAN HELP US COPE Good news for cinephiles: you may be more emotionally robust than non-moviegoers. Watching meaningful films can make you feel more prepared for life’s challenges, as well as make you strive to be a better person, according to The Ohio State University in the US. These positive experiences weren’t connected to all films, but those that were moving or poignant, such as The Shawshank Redemption and Up. The study helps explain why you’re often drawn to films that make you cry. Pass the popcorn (and the tissues). MEAT-FREE MONDAY – AND BEYOND!

Organic Facial Oil (£33, bysarahlondon.com) blends organic plant oils, including almond, apricot, pumpkin seed and evening primrose, to help skin retain moisture and leave it more resilient. Poppy’s Natural Skincare Super Age-Defying Organic Bakuchiol & Amla Face Oil (£75, poppysns.co.uk) has a lovely neroli scent (like oranges) and I love that it’s lightweight and sinks in fast. Willowberry Sensitive Face Oil (£26.99, willowberry.co.uk) is made without essential oils, which can cause reactions for sensitive skins. The rosehip, chia seed and vitamin E hydrate and soothe.…

I overhauled my lifestyle, because it was playing havoc with my hormones and emotions. I’d struggled with my mental health for 19 years and medication wasn’t enough to help me get better, so I had to take responsibility. At the end of 2019, I started a plant-based diet then three months later I decided to cut out alcohol. Before, I’d eat healthily but on treat days I would have pizza, chips and burgers. This would always go hand-in-hand with, “let’s have a bottle of wine – let’s party”. It was a roller coaster. From Monday to Wednesday, I was always recovering from unhealthy eating and a hangover from the weekend. I used to have a really unhealthy relationship with alcohol. It would set my anxiety through the roof. When I lost…
