Sleepy Cat Look-A-Like Competition

10363570_797573176942327_5704476200550264883_n There is perhaps one species that enjoys lazing around as much as we do, and that is the humble cat. Cats are ruddy brilliant - they just don't care, and manage to look super-cool for it… most of the time! The only time that the cool ca...

How to sleep well at music festivals

For many, the coming of the Glastonbury Festival at the end of June heralds the beginning of both the summer and the festival season. However, late-night partying followed by disrupted tent sleeping and early mornings mean that a summer of frivolity comes at a cost: sleep. We've calculated that 12.267 million hours sleep could be lost this summer as a result of poor sleeping conditions at the ten major UK music festivals. The calculations worked on the principle that each night, the average...

How much sleep does a footballer need?

It's easy to sit back and criticise footballers when things don't go to plan on the pitch. Whether they don't get to their opponents quick enough or they miss a penalty, we're all guilty of practically tearing our hair out during the World Cup - and we're not even past the group stages yet! However, in a game lasting for 90 minutes, with the footballers more or less always on the move, the players must need an awful lot of energy to keep going as they do. This got us wondering about the pr...

Staying up late for World Cup games

  Staying up late for World Cup games Staying up late for World Cup games The FIFA World Cup is now most definitely in full swing right now, and it feels like the whole globe has caught football fever! However, with the games being held in Brazil, some of the matches aren't at the most convenient of times. True, they could be lat...

Get happy for Celebrate the Power of a Smile day!

Roald Dahl said it best: “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” Whilst Celebrate the Power of a Smile day is not really about beauty, we all know how lovely it is to receive a heart-warming smile, and we agree with Dahl - if you're happy, your face shows it! We believe the secret to ha...

Rock-a-bye Baby and other rhymes

Any parent will know the trials and tribulations that come hand-in-hand with putting your children to bed. There are nights when they’re asleep the second their head hits the sheets, and other nights they can take a little bit more convincing. Perhaps since time began, humans have resorted to singing soothing rhymes or tunes to help lull our little ones into the land of nod – but have we ever actually looked at the lyrics behind some of our favourite rhymes? Though the tune might be soothing...

Photographing sleep

The more you think about the actual notion of sleep, the more bizarre it seems. This resting state is something so fundamental to human life, and yet when we are asleep, the majority of us aren’t aware of it. Perhaps that’s why there is such a fascination with how we look when we sleep, and the positions in which we unknowingly tangle ourselves. It is this that has caught the imagination of many photographers over the years. Here, in honour of Photo Month, we’re going to look at some of th...

Eating or sleeping?

Believe it or not, this Sunday (11th May) is Eat What You Want Day. No diets, no unnecessary vegetable accompaniments to a meal, Eat What You Want Day is set to celebrate the freedom and choice we have over what we consume. Though this is quite an exciting prospect for those that are making a conscious effort to eat healthily, the effects of eating exactly what you want are still going to show themselves – no matter what ‘day’ it is! These effects will of course include the obvious rami...

'Making Your Mind Up' to stay awake for Eurovision

It's that time of year again, where the whole of Europe joins in a communal celebration of song writing, the love of music and a night of eccentric performances which, of course, constitutes the phenomenon that is the Eurovision Song Contest. This year, the event is coming from the Danish capital of Copenhagen, and we're in the lucky position of only having to stay awake until 11:30pm BST to await the final results. However, what about the other participating and observing countries – how long...
