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!

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...

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!
