How can you hold on to that early snuggly happiness brought on by the thought of winter, and prevent your life descending into a mildly confusing mixture of mulled wine, Wham-on-a-loop and nightmares about layering?
From Peru to China, the lesser-known towns and cities offer travellers something different for the new year. Featuring Unesco World Heritage Sites, music festivals, historical landmarks and film locations, these destinations won't disappoint.
What a shocking thought that with hundreds of thousands of women giving birth in the UK every year, how many of these women will be entering into motherhood with no knowledge of maternal mental health issues, but will, unfortunately, be one of the one in 10 diagnosed with one?
How many times have you heard yourself saying things like "turning up to the gym is half the battle" or "doing something is better than doing nothing"? Both statements are true in so far as they can motivate us to get up and do some exercise.
I highly recommend ensuring pregnant women increase their omega 3 levels, and work towards a healthier balance of omega 3 to omega 6 as this has been shown to increase our brain power, sleep and mood, and may help us fight any addictive tendencies. However, there is a concern from some readers, especially when pregnant, that eating too much fish (one of the most common sources of Omega 3) can be risky.
For those of us with some level of gym experience - that is three to 12 months of regular working out - there are eight basic rules to speeding up your fat loss, whatever your mind and body preference.
Over the past 30 years since Britain entered the information age, technology, computer and machines have now replaced these labor-intensive jobs as an increase demand and efficiency was needed. But this has come at a cost to people's health.

Homelessness creates a state of vulnerability for these young people and makes them easy prey for malicious adults.
You can lose that extra fat you are carrying. It will be hard. It will take time. It will take courage, persistence and motivation. But you can do it. Follow these five simple steps, integrate them into your life, make them habits and you will automate fat burning and create that body you've always wanted.
If parents can't, or won't, respond to their children's perfectly natural curiosity about the human body and where babies come from, the responsibility falls on schools to provide answers to those questions.
When you're shaken, bent on your knees with hands over your face; far too many times, we almost always accept defeat right away. However, failure doesn't teach us to accept defeat, it teaches us that every time we fall down, there's nothing more important than growing up and getting back up.
Dying isn't a decision, and the fight for survival is not a fight, where the more pugilistic are destined to win. I think of Sunny now with her rosary beads, as I last saw her - staunchly convinced that her God would show her mercy.
