I shifted my midlife weight in six months – now I’m fitter than I was in my twenties

I used to be a stylist, working incredibly long hours styling A-list celebrities, and while it sounds glamorous, it was exactly the opposite: you start very early in the morning, finish late at night and if you’ve not got exactly the right jumper, everyone acts as if the world is falling apart.

Self-care: why looking after No 1 isn’t always best for your wellbeing

Like many people, I find that stress transforms me into a nasty combination of Oscar the Grouch and Scrooge McDuck.

I’ve read enough wellness advice to know that I need to prioritise my own needs over other people’s. And so, when I feel under pressure, I have often made it a habit to practise small indulgences aimed at restoring...

I spent 60 years sneering at yoga. It turns out I love it – and it does make you healthier and happier

It’s 7.30 on a Saturday morning and I am contorted and sweaty, but oddly happy. I’m on all fours, more or less, with my bum raised and one leg up behind me, rotated at the hip and bent at the knee. I must look a little like a dog cocking his leg. There are a dozen other people around me, all wearing as little as possible. That’s because the air has been heated to 37C – blood temperature. Somehow, at the age of 60, I have got into yoga. And not...

I started smoking at 14 – and reached 40 a day. A single therapy session changed my life

Smoking has warped my brain. One evening last winter, as I stood outside a pub, cigarette in hand, a friend who works in life insurance decided to calculate the chance of me dying before I hit 60 if I carried on smoking. He quizzed me about my lifestyle, plugging the answers into his death matrix. “If you give up smoking now, there’s a 6% chance you die before hitting 60. If you don’t, it’s 13%,” he concluded. Normal people will see that the...
