Do you know how I know it’s 2020? Because I am sitting in the warm flush of a post-yoga glow (Hot26 now, not Bikram – thanks, Netflix documentary), sipping on an oat-milk flat white (no, not nut, cow, rice or soy) and reading about how someone on Instagram binge-watched the entire first season of The Goop Lab… Snap, baby! Snap! Me too! In 2020, Gwyneth Paltrow, a.k.a. Goop, isn’t a movie star, she’s a bona fide wellness trailblazer. Less than a decade ago, she was all superhero movies, yoni eggs, vagina facials (hers) and eye rolls (ours) – now she’s gone and taken magic mushrooms into the mainstream. So, what exactly happened in 2020? Each year always starts exactly the same way – new year, new-me vibes, like “my diet starts on…

ask us anything

HOW CAN I TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTUITION AND ANXIETY? ANSWER Trust your gut feeling, they say. But when anxiety also makes your tummy churn, it’s hard to know what to believe. “When you’re stressed, anxious and overtired, your intuition will be off,” confirms author of Intuitive, Craigh Wilson. Problem is, our crazy-busy lives mean many of us are stuck on stress mode by default. The answer, Wilson says, is self-care. “When it’s difficult to clear your mind, the best course is to rest.

wh in numbers how do you rate?

72 The percentage of you who said that you preferred exercising in the morning, while the other 28 percent said you were night owls. Whichever side you fall on doesn’t really matter because each one carries its own benefits. Exercising in the evening is a great way to wind down from the day’s stresses, while exercising in the morning is one of the best ways to feel more energised and optimistic for the day ahead. As long as you’re exercising, you’re good! 55 percent of you said that you struggle to fall asleep at night and 72 percent said that you’ve never tried yoga to improve the quality of your sleep.
