1 Direction Heartbreak

I see clearly now Zayn has gone…   By Louise Hood Oh. My. God. Zayn has left One Direction. I’m in shock.. me.. a 33 year old woman. Not because I am the biggest One Direction fan but because I know what the hundreds of thousands (or more like billions) of fans are feeling right now. I have been through this experience before. I was at my sister’s house back in 1995 when my mum came up with that morning’s newspaper (remember we didn’t rely on the internet in those days) and there it was…the end of my life....

Revitalize your day

Get-up-and-go…   By Emily Rodgers Are you feeling the midday slump but not ready to unwind just yet? Us too! We all wish we could keep that reviving feeling we get after a big stretch, a nice face wash and a good brew in the morning. Unfortunately, this sensation usually starts to wear off come lunch time.

Some activity that will not induce a look of pity and embarrassment when explaining (via small talk) that you actually did sod all for 2 whole days.

Carbs Are Not The Enemy

Complex? Nah, carbs are cool…   By Avneet Samra  I’ve come across clients who are scared of carbs as they think it will make them put on weight. This is not true; carbs will not make you fat. However, there are good carbs and bad carbs. Good carbs include whole-wheat pasta, whole-wheat bread, sweet potato, vegetables, beans, legumes. Bad carbs include cakes, biscuits, white bread, white pasta, croissants, crumpets, doughnuts, etc. Obviously if you are only eating bad carbs then of course you will put on weight! If you are eating good carbs then you will not. Good carbs...
