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. Translating to ‘the sweet life’, there’s little wonder that those hailing from Venice to Sicily are living longer, more fulfilled lives (have you ever met a Nonna that isn’t full of energy?) - and that we should all be striving for the same...


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. But longevity comes with a price: that o...


A moment that changed me: I thought fitness was my superpower. Then I realised it was a ball and chain

I have Jane Fonda to thank for my fitness “discovery” in the late 1980s. Still in my teens, I wore through the carpet doing her workout videos in front of the TV. I also spent hours ploughing up and down the pool at the local leisure centre and honing my muscles at the gym. I always regarded fitness as my superpower. Something that I worked hard at, for sure, but something that gave me kudos. Keeping fit – I mean, really fit – seemed to me an...

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...


I’m a French woman in my 40s. This is why I’m going to live longer than a woman in England

Whether it’s a café croissant watching the world go by from a Parisian terrace, or that glass of rosé with a long-time friend, or an apéritif with the neighbours that extends into an impromptu dinner party… People often misconstrue the French joie de vivre as simply hedonistic. But when you look at the consistent two-year gap between life expectanc...

Rheumatoid arthritis forced me to change my diet – and now I’m pain free

I can’t remember a time in my life when there hasn’t been pain somewhere in my body. It came to dominate much of my adult life. If somebody hasn’t been in constant pain, it’s hard to describe it to them. You’re masking the whole time, and everything is so much more difficult. The mornings were the worst for me as the throbbing and aching sensations...

How to wear head-to-toe white – and the pitfalls to avoid

Summer is here, and with it the annual shift to white as our go-to neutral. We may be shrouded in black, grey and navy the rest of the year, but when the sun is out, nothing beats the crisp freshness of white, ivory and cream. It can be bohemian, minimalist, glamorous, edgy; it’s ageless and timeless. Much of the appeal lies in the fact it looks ex...


How the food you eat actually changes your face

People sometimes comment on how I look so different today from when they started following me on Mindvalley around 8 years ago. I wanted to share how dramatic this change is by showing you my old and new ID and a massive old Mindvalley T-Shirt I used to wear. 😲 The reason for the change is even more dramatic - it has to do with making certain changes to the foods I chose to eat and a few mental concepts like BCD (Behavioral Change Dynamics). Watch the video and if you're curious about how to experience this yourself, and how you can change your own biology in just three months.... Join the FREE webinar I set up to share this model with you. (Special guest is @EricEdmeades of Wildfit.) 👉 https://go.mindvalley.com/pW9GRCSE #LoseWeight #FoodFreedom
