Safe Spaces and Trigger Warnings Silences the Victims Not Protect Them

Alexander Morgan | Posted 15.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle

Instead of offering a hand to help survivors face their experiences head on, we shut them away in a dark lonely room where no one acknowledges what happened to them, forcing them into a silence and taking their voice away - ultimately prolonging their recoveries.

Suicide Is the Biggest Killer of Men Under 50... Why?

Paul McGregor | Posted 15.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle

If my Dad had broke his leg he'd be sent home in a cast, and we'd have instructions on how he'd get better. We'd be told to help him rest for a few weeks, he'd be told when he could get back to walking, back to running and back to full recovery. We'd be told what medication he was on and when he should take it...

It's the same kind of full body workout you get, from ball carrying, tackling, getting to your feet and competing for the ball. So it's great rugby specific work - great research for my new rugby book due out next week!

Sending Schoolgirls Home For Wearing ‘Short Skirts' Is Where Victim Blaming Begins

If staff in schools are really worried about boys viewing girls as sexual objects, they should be giving those boys lessons in how to respect women, rather than training girls in the art of dressing like a nun.

Lamb with Salsa Verde and Crushed Broad Beans

Linda Duffin | Posted 15.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Linda Duffin

I used lamb rump here but you can just as easily use chops or lamb steaks. And there are many variations on salsa verde: tweak and taste until you have something you like. It would be lovely with a handful of wild garlic chopped into it, if you can find some. Swap the tarragon for basil if you prefer it. The important thing is that it's green, herby and pungent.

Positively Primal Living

Does our world of constant connection, instant gratification, with an abundance of choice and information available at just a click away leave us feeling content and satisfied with our lives? I don't think so - it seems as if we're more depressed, stressed and disconnected than ever before.

Kate, Reclaim Your Royal Sexiness

I have a theory. It's just a small one, but in drawing and sketching so many women - of all kinds of beauty and sexiness (or not so much), I've learned that there is just one thing that makes a woman feel and exude gorgeousness. And that's what she feels about herself. Self love.

We Need to Make Loos Accessible to People With a Stoma

Caroline Richards | Posted 14.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Caroline Richards

I live with a colostomy. This means my colon has been diverted through an opening on the side of my abdomen so that bodily waste can pass into a stoma bag. My stoma is due to bowel cancer but many people undergo surgery for one due to Crohn's and Colitis, childbirth, injury and other conditions.

Why You Need to Be 'Mole' Aware This Summer for Early Detection of Skin Cancer

Diane Knox | Posted 14.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Diane Knox

I'll never forget sitting with my friend in the hospital and being told that it was cancer. Being diagnosed was the scariest experience of my life. Still, to this day I really find it difficult to express how much of a shock it was, just because you hear stories all the time and the word 'cancer' fills you with fear. You think, 'it won't happen to me'.

The low number of black and mixed race people signed to the UK stem cell register is sadly a reoccurring pattern. For example, the number of black or mixed race individuals who are active blood donors across England and North Wales is less than 1%.

Anything More Than Nothing Is Something

Trevor Silvester

You can't negotiate with success. You either do what it requires, or it goes to someone else. Usually that's the person who doesn't care that they're tired, who starts earlier or works later, who turns off the TV, who sacrifices 'me time', who finds a way around every obstacle.

Anger Is Your Friend

Mia Doring | Posted 14.04.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Mia Doring

Anger, like all of our emotional states, is pointing us towards a personal insight. Dig a little, without judging or self criticism, for what could be beneath the anger; maybe it's a value we didn't know we held, maybe it unearths a blind spot, maybe it shows us what we really care about.

Detox in Deutschland: Buchinger Wilhelmi, Uberlingen, Germany

I'm no stranger to fasting: I've tried hippyish water fasts in Thailand, juice fasts in Devon, and the Mayr cure (yogurt and copiously-chewed bread) in Bavaria. But I've never experienced this degree of thoughtfulness and support, and that's what makes the Buchinger Wilhelmi the natural choice for first-time fasters.

When I Turned Vegan for the Weekend

Don't worry. This wasn't some elaborate bet that I lost. It wasn't something that I had planned to do, just to see if I could. In fact, I'm not sure it's even something I would have ever done if I hadn't been in a situation where, if I didn't eat vegan, I would have starved.

As a dietitian, the challenge is to educate people on healthier food choices, activity and lifestyle changes. Doing this in clinic on a one to one basis is excellent and, provided you have enough time, you can really drill down and identify the changes that need to be made.
