Just so I don't lose you in the first sentence, let me say that this article ends on a very positive note and I'd suggest you all get yourself to Yeotown quick smart for some intensive body and brain detoxing.

The longer story is, I was duped...

Wandering through London last weekend, I spotted a sign outside a pizza restaurant, which read 'Hello Happiness'. I was smiling anyway, thanks to the sun being out and my arms being full of the bundle of gorgeousness that is my niece, Skyla. Still, I smiled a little more. (And not...

Offices where napping is an encouraged art form are few and far between, but HuffPost is no ordinary office.

Ever since we launched back in 2005 in the US, our founder and editor-in-chief, Arianna Huffington, has encouraged her journalists to take time out of their working day to...

International Women's Day takes place this Saturday, and will be celebrated with events across the world. The theme this year? 'Inspire Change'.

Taking that notion on board, this year at HuffPost we have decided to move the conversation on. While it's all too temping to go over the same...

As a society, we like our news fast and our solutions faster, but this week delivered a reminder that problems that made front-page news years back can make for positive updates a decade or so later (albeit hidden on page 23 of the paper).

As Kiev erupted into violence this week, the world's media made its way to the city's makeshift morgues and, once again, made record of a country taking democracy into its own hands.

There has been no end of dramatic imagery emerging from the city, but perhaps the most...

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day or not this year, it's certainly difficult to ignore. Of all the articles that have been written about the event, and we have certainly run our fair share on HuffPost UK, I don't believe there are any as poignant or heart wrenching as

With typhoon Haiyan but a distant memory for most people outside the Philippines, reports emerged this week of a stand-off on one of the islands most seriously affected, which is keeping thousands from being re-housed. There are still 50,000 people in Tacloban whose homes were destroyed or are...

Beyoncè made front pages the world over this week, thanks to her seriously raunchy Grammys' performance with husband Jay-Z, with columnists getting their knickers in a twist (pun intended) over the appropriateness, or not, of her La Perla ribbons and Saint Laurent sparkly tights.

When was the last time you worked through your lunch break? Complained about how stressed you were feeling? Or answered emails on your BlackBerry in bed? At a guess, if you are anything like millions of other HuffPost readers around the world, I reckon "yesterday" would be a pretty common...

While the rich and famous debated all that's important for the future of the planet in Davos this week, on UK soil there were some startling reports showing we still have a lot to solve in the present.

Fifteen years ago, the landmark Macpherson report was set up...

Hands up those of you giving up booze for January? Now those planning a detox New Year diet? Wow, I feel slightly depressed already. How on Earth are you going to get through the dark evenings and dreary mornings?

Have you ever noticed how many New Year resolutions are all...

The Year That Was: 2013

It was the year of twerking and selfies, of Royal babies and Wimbledon wins, but befitting its numerals, 2013 also had more than its fair share of tragedy and mourning.

As we look towards 2014, with a sense of optimism and hope, cast your mind back to the events...

The Week That Was: Best of All

It's mid-December, which must means it's... end-of-the-year, round-up time!

This week you couldn't turn a page or click a link without stumbling upon best of' lists, reader votes and the like, and I'm afraid at HuffPost we couldn't resist joining in. Rather than select our own favourites, however, we teamed...

What did you do with your extra hour last Sunday? If Instagram were to be believed, I'd hazard a guess it was working on your Halloween costume.

Yep, forget Christmas, if there's a 'festival' worth getting dressed up for, Halloween appears to be very much it, with us Brits
