How to beat the big four diseases of ageing

We are living longer than ever before. In 1765, the average lifespan was just 38.8 years, and even by the start of the 1920s, still only 56. Then along came the vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and tuberculosis. Today, life expectancy in the UK is 78.6 years for males and 82.6 years for females.

As a Briton who spent years living in America, these are 10 things that are better across the pond

America is far from perfect. It’s laughably insular and has many chronic problems that feel virtually unfixable: broken political systems, a lack of free healthcare, rampant homelessness and drug abuse in cities, shootings and high rates of suicide and depression that belie its “have a nice day” image… But these are largely problems that affect res...

I tried living 'La Dolce Vita' - and Italians have got it all right

Living ‘La Dolce Vita’ has become synonymous with Italian culture, good vibes, and embracing life’s luxuries.

A moment that changed me: I was divorced, broke and alone – but I turned my life around with a list

The silence in the flat was deafening. Having lost almost everything in my divorce, it was now just me in a basement studio flat with black mould. I had no TV, no sofa and the wifi wasn’t set up. I sat at a cheap folding table and made a list. Since my life was no longer going to be the way I had planned – marriage, kids, a dog, a late-Victorian terrace in a country town – I was going to try something else. I was going to do all the things on my...
