Stress is highly personal and something that can be attributed to one or more factors. It's these factors that can bring about stress in varying speeds, environments and locations. The following six catalysts are considered to be the most common, and can be attributed to the main causes of stress.
There is an empty stage at the core of British politics, and Russell Brand has been allowed to step on to it. From that position he has aired views ranging from the preposterous to the blindingly obvious. All the while he has shown a brazen willingness to speak truth, or at least his version of it, to power.
This evening my subject got so stoned with members of the audience that when struggling to read out something from his iPhone notes, he stopped to apologise "because he couldn't read his own writing" despite the writing being that of a typed font and not his specific illegible calligraphy.
If I'm honest, the idea of making this album was an afterthought. I spent eight months working on Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Mandela was really into his music and part of my research was to understand what he liked. What I probably didn't realise at the time was just how much there was to discover. In the course of that journey, I felt like I discovered the roots of South African music. And there was so much to discover! South Africa has over 60 different tribes, and each has its own style of musical expression and its own unique style.
Let's get real here. I'm not a fan of Lena Dunham but she's not a child molester. Children explore their bodies and sexuality at different ages and Lena shouldn't be criticized for this. It's clear her sister isn't bothered by these accusations either.
According to recent theory, the trend of taking "selfies" is actually linked to mental health conditions, with a focus on an individuals obsession with looks and image. Studies have revealed that the majority of teenagers who are image and body conscious, have a compulsion to repeatedly take and post selfies across social media sites.
If you lived through the sixties, chances are you were either a Beatle or a Stone. If rock 'n' roll wasn't your thing then you would have been forced to choose between Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton.
One of the first symptoms of depression is when you can't make any decisions. Choosing which direction to walk is overwhelming, looking at a menu is like going on Mastermind. Eventually your brain gives up, it has no more room, you've scored 'game over' hit your full capacity like an over stuffed hoover bag before it explodes.
In order to be a successful businesswomen in this male-dominated world, I believe confidence is key. Not only to success, but to happiness. I am much happier with myself today as I have confidence in what I do. Over my life, I have learned so much and I was lucky enough to have a fantastic mentor - my mother.
Guess what girls? Your body is disgusting. If you're bigger than a size 12 you're disgusting. If you're smaller than a size 12 you're disgusting. And just who's decided you're disgusting? Your fellow women, of course.
Yes, folks, t'is true. Mag sales are on the decline, and our favourite weeklies are in danger of following in the doomed footsteps of Smash Hits, More and Company. But can they be saved? I think they can! But for that to happen, I - a one-time magazine editor and devoted connoisseur of celeb weeklies - believe there needs to be some dramatic changes first!
Sharkey's massive solo smash A Good Heart was written by Maria McKee... about Benmont Tench... Then Sharkey's follow-up hit, You Little Thief was written by Tench in response to McKee, so Sharkey turned into smash hits these two songs that are actually a conversation. I love that anecdote...
My daughter has a fight on her hands. She won't be married off at nine or twelve. But at nine or twelve she will already be exposed to fashion aimed at her which sexualises her, she will perhaps like female pop stars whose pert bums as crucial to ticket sales as their music. She will have started to get comments, positive and negative about her face and figure. I want the sky to be the limit for both of my children, but it is already clear that my son's ambition will be celebrated and the size of his bottom under much less scrutiny.
East is East is a bright, well-observed comedy about the issues facing second-generation Pakistani children born and raised in the UK. Starring the gloriously talented Jane Horrocks and writer Ayub Khan-Din, the play has a terrific pace with an excellent balance of humour and pathos to keep you hooked.
Vote, run a marathon for charity, sell all your possessions, start a political party, have a cup of tea with your neighbours, sponsor a friend. Whatever it is, you can make a difference by doing whatever you think is right, it doesn't matter if anyone else thinks your wrong.
Having heard Bill Murray on the subject and reflected a little myself, I still can't convincingly explain the difference between good and bad corn. But I do know good corn exists and there are times when a good dose can be very therapeutic. That's what I got from Bill Murray's new film, St. Vincent.
