The month of January always feels like a fresh white page to me, crisp and clean, waiting for me to declare my hopes and plans for the coming year in my best handwriting. The temptation is to go for the long-list, to get in all of those ‘been meaning-tos’, ‘must make more time fors’ and ‘this year I'll definitelys’. But why do we do this to ourselves? If we didn’t have time for all of those things in October, or November, or December – what makes us think that we’ll suddenly find time for them all in January? While I haven’t made a resolution since the Kids were New on The Block, I love the ritual of writing my plans and intentions at the start of the year, and I credit this…

Pop tip! Making your own popcorn is a fun way of whipping up a delicious snack, but it could also help you to reduce your plastic usage – as unlikely as it sounds! If you’re posting any fragile items, it’s traditional to reach for the bubble wrap, but swapping it for freshly popped corn will provide just as much protection, without adding to our national mountain of plastic waste. Harriet Dyer, author of Say No To Plastic, is a big popcorn packing fan, citing its durability and the fact that it’s compostable. She advises that we just need to be mindful of which kind of popcorn we pick to pop. “You don’t want to cover a present with salty or toffee residue!” she writes. Not to mention that we’d likely eat the…

supporting others

We’re always being told that the secret to happiness lies in helping others. Indeed, one of the recommended suggestions for those feeling isolated, lonely or depressed is that they should volunteer for charity work to enjoy a dose of the feel-good factor that comes from supporting others.

But sometimes we can do more to help by pausing and thinking about the kind of support we offer, and our motivation in offering it. When we offer support, it may not always be wanted…

finding support

When I was 39, my partner collapsed on the street with a brain aneurysm. Ten weeks later he died in hospital. This was a detonation that jettisoned me from my life and friendships and set me adrift in an unfathomable sea of grief and isolation. A few years later, I was diagnosed with cancer and once again found myself segregated from my peers, dealing with something that, statistically, most people don’t experience until their 60s and beyond. Around the same time, a friend discovered that her boyfriend – the love of her life – had been unfaithful throughout their entire relationship, and another friend looked in the mirror and saw an alcoholic. What got each of us through our own private hell was finding a support group for people in…
