WELCOME TO HEALTHY

The idea of a fresh start – the first page in a lovely new notebook, clean, crisp white linen bed sheets – never loses its appeal. And while the healthy team make it our mission to inspire you every issue with simple little ways you can make your life happier and healthier, at this time of year these ‘mini life lifts’ feel particularly appealing. We’re through the roller-coaster hype of New Year and feeling more realistic, and settled, about what we can – and really want to – do differently this year.

My favourite easy changes this issue? Stop checking work emails when I’m trying to help my son with his maths homework – a recipe for frustration and shouting all round (see Time To Try Solo Tasking, page 57). Strip chemicals out of my beauty regime with our gorgeous DIY recipes (see Clean Up Your Beauty Style, page 38). And find some way to add a team element to my fitness regime for added enjoyment and motivation (see page 124). Tricky considering I generally run, swim and cycle – so perhaps it is time to join our local tri club after all.

Elsewhere, we investigate the seemingly unstoppable super foods trend with our must-read investigative piece (So, Just How Super Are Super foods?, page 30), and showcase the delicious super food recipes (Every Day Super foods, page 98) that really will deliver on their feel-better promises. Enjoy the issue and, as always, do let me know what you think.
