At night I can’t sleep - in the morning I can’t wake up We've all been there. Trying to get a balance between your work, social and home life, with time to spare for the gym can be exhausting alone, but if you’re struggling to switch off at bedtime it won’t be long until you’re fully burnt out. SNOOZE YOU LOSE Getting a good nights’ kip doesn’t just feel good, it's doing us some good too. Catching some serious z’s can keep our heart, weight and mind in check. Giving your body time to regenerate raises your attention span and can increase our lifespan too. And don’t let your man get in the way of your weekend lie-in. It’s proven that women need a full eight hours so our brain can recover from all the multi-tasking we do. The key is making time and prioritising bedtime as part of your daily routine which means the BF is on breakfast in bed duties! Hell yeah. SILENT NIGHT Our social addiction has gone from zero to hero in the last few years but is partially to blame for us feeling fuzzy.

by Katie Forrester Ever heard the phrases ‘emotional eating’ or ‘hangry’? There’s no denying that we all have a relationship with the food we eat, but is there such a thing iRL as a ‘happy meal’? It’s all in the science Find me a girl that says chocolate doesn’t make her happy? Nope? Thought so. We know our $h!t when it comes to cocoa and cacao and the pleasure it brings.
