As more people struggle with the daily grind,  anxiety, depression and stress, mindfulness meditation is packing a mean punch, especially for a practise adapted from a 2,400-year-old Buddhist tradition.  

A favourite practise for the Hollywood Glitterati (Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Clint Eastwood) meditation involves sitting still, focusing on your breath, noticing thoughts, feelings, sensations and surroundings and when the attention drifts, bringing it back to the breath – and it is actually surprisingly challenging.

The Challenges and Benefits of Meditation

Spring time juice cleanse

This is the time of year (clocks have changed and it’s lighter and brighter, days are warmer) I’m tempted to treat my body to a juice cleanse. Having ramped up my exercise regime (I rotate dynamic yoga one day with a run the next), I’ve heard it’s the perfect time to clean out and re-energise your body. It’s a bit like spring cleaning my house – there’s an urge to clear out the cupboards and de-clutter my home in Spring.

Our bodies are so intelligent and do a great job of detoxing on their own, but these days in...

Its almost Easter and whilst I rub my hands with glee in anticipation of a good ol chocolate-fest, it made me realise that I have  absolutely no idea why we give Easter eggs and where the tradition comes from.  With my Sherlock hat on and magnifying glass at the ready, I unearthed lots of  interesting and quirky facts about Easter eggs that I never even knew and wanted to share them with you:
