Through my own training I have seen massive changes in my body- this because I train with weights and have done so for more than four years now. The changes were subtle initially but as my nutrition and training stepped out, things began to change.
Most breast cancers aren't detected through screening - instead they're found in other ways such as women going to their GP after noticing changes. There's no right or wrong way to check your breasts.
If you don't drink for medical, religious, health or other reasons, decide beforehand what explanation you're prepared to share with people and what you're not. Remember, when all is said and done, it really is no one else's business but your own.
Mental illness is not difficult to understand and often can be easy to control and even, overcome. In fact sometimes, it's easier to control mental illnesses than the judgement and opinion of people, who don't have the time or compassion listen, understand and support. That's the real problem and the source of the stigma for people with mental illness.
Anxiety affects different people in different ways, but some of the most common symptoms are: a dry mouth, pounding heart, feeling breathless, fatigue or difficulty sleeping, dizziness and headaches, lack of concentration, needing the toilet frequently, constant worrying, irritability, and nausea.
'Relax', they say, 'it'll happen when you stop thinking about it'. I'm trying, I really am. But how do you strike a balance between optimising your chance of getting pregnant and staying sane?
Facegym makes your face glow by literally working out the face. The best bit is you don't have to move a muscle with their wonderfully trained therapists doing the hard work for you!
The year was 2005. I was 15 and in my 10th year of schooling. This was the year I threw up for the first time from tequila shots, first awkwardly kissed a girl at a house party, and I was diagnosed with testicular cancer...
Some people even feel that by worrying, they are somehow protecting themselves against the feared drop coming; they have learned that most things they worry about don't come to pass, so fear that if they take their eye off the ball and stop worrying, they will allow a calamity to creep in and take them by surprise.
For the lucky people reading this who've never had the flu, traditional wisdom states that the difference between a cold and flu is that when you have the flu, you wouldn't get out of bed even if it were raining £50 notes. It's easy to catch, it's easy to pass on, and it can survive on lift buttons, door handles and chip and pin machines for a whole day, just waiting for its next victim.
You need something that you can do where you don't have to ask, you don't have to wait around for someone else to help you, you don't have to fear other people's opinions or emotions. You just have something, right there and then, at the end of your fingertips to assist you in staying safe.
Improving the wellbeing of children is about listening and taking concerns seriously. One way England could do this would be to follow the example of Northern Ireland and Wales, where every school has a counsellor.
One of the many cool things that London has brought into my life is, definitely, yoga. I walked into my first yoga class in May 2011 in Primrose Hill. What I didn't know then, but I do know now, is that I had no clue whatsoever on what yoga was all about...
Remember the viral campaign, written about so eloquently here by breast cancer survivor and friend Nicola, that challenged women to 'Hold a Coke Between Your Boobs' and post a selfie of it? For breast cancer, of course. Except, had you had a mastectomy, then, sorry, you couldn't take part.
