This generation has already set the pace by drinking and smoking less than ever before. But with the rise of obesity it is now time for young people (and their parents) to take hold of the opportunities they have and create a truly healthy life.

Do you like soul music? Folk music? How about the two together? I recently heard the powerful voice of British Nigerian singer songriter, Lánre who manages to infuse both soul and folk together - if it sounds bizarre, trust me, it works.

The EU Needs Its Soul Back

Ben Ryan

Economic performance is ever variable, but a raison d'être based in being a moral force for good is a more durable status and one that might be better suited to winning the loyalties of citizens. At the very least one would think that Europe's defenders might have something more to say than just repeating those scary economic threats.

Karen Ruimy

Sometimes I've experienced a lot of pain when somebody leaves my life, like a lover, a friend, a work partner or an employee - someone who is close to me in my life and then has to leave to go on another path. It takes a long time for me to soothe that pain.

Stepping Out Onto a Spiritual Path

Karen Ruimy

Very often we are brought to the spiritual path by the unexpected forces of life. We are spiritual beings living a human life, but we all forget it the minute we incarnate in our physical bodies. We all enter into life on Earth as souls, totally enlightened and are given physical limits.

Rupert Parker

Now in its 38th Year, North Sea Jazz never fails to please and, this year, with Stevie Wonder and Pharrell Williams topping the bill, it was better than ever... It's a marvel of good organisation, as the sound is impeccable, everything starts on time, there's never really any crush and everyone's good natured.

New Sounds: Laura Jae

Isabella Smith | Posted 30.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Isabella Smith

More soulful than FKA Twigs' unsettling grace and with less sex than Kelela and BANKS, Laura Jae nevertheless fits into the new class of young female artists making pop interesting again. She counts Aaliyah, Bjork and James Blake as influences; The Weeknd with his 'weird mysterious aura' is her dream collaboration.

Soulwash - Is Western Spirituality Just Camouflaged materialism?

Daniel Crockett | Posted 23.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Daniel Crockett

I, like many other agnostic young people living in the spiritual void of modern Britain, flirt with the idea of spirituality. As a spiritual dilettante, I reluctantly stretch through the odd yoga class or attempt to silence the endless flow of internal chatter using occasional meditation.

How I Turned My Unhappy Past Into a Happy One

Samantha van Dalen | Posted 28.08.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Samantha van Dalen

I was brought up in an agnostic house- my parents were not particularly interested in religion and made it plain to us three children that we could do whatever we wanted. In a sense I am grateful to my parents who both came from relatively liberal families and were not that ingrained with God and the rest.

The 'Rare Groove' movement as it was branded (70's funky music in the main) was created by Sharpe and friends at London's coolest night spots, and the clothes sold at the Duffer store were all part of a fusion of music and style that became a defining trend for so many designers and artists.

My On-off Affair With Northern Soul

Yousif Nur

Northern Soul wasn't so much a scene to many, as much as it was a way of life. These tunes were the most obscure of the obscure, plucked from indie labels in the ghettos of Detroit and Chicago. Some songs were only ever intended as demos, and here in the UK they found a new lease of life.

At a restaurant the other night I noticed as normal, side by side to the cutlery, the obligatory smartphone. Mine was in my bag, not that I want to be smug about it. As soon as one diner of two got up to go the bathroom, the smart phone was picked up.

My Religion? My Soul

I think the act of praying is actually praying to that higher self that resides within us. Why do you think in church they say God is everywhere? The priests that preach that have no idea how very profound that statement is. The truth that is behind it. God is everywhere because you ARE God. We all are.

We live in an age where society attempts to conform to the status quo. We are told that in exchange for beauty we will obtain success and happiness. What we are not told is how much unhappiness we often go through to achieve this unachievable perception of beauty.
