The science of good sleep

Studies have found that teenagers with electronic devices in their bedrooms reported consistently worse sleep. Not enough quality sleep can have an almost immediate effect. It makes it harder to think and easier to become irritated and stressed. But did you know that poor sleep increases the risk of more serious medical conditions? Getting to grips with sleep can help you make healthier choices for yourself and your family.

A healthy social circle

Our interactions with friends and family can be essential in supporting many aspects of our health and wellness. But when we experience a lack of drive, negative self-worth or an ongoing sense of feeling low, it can be harder to manage healthy relationships or even engage in everyday social situations. This could signify languishing, a term used to describe the absence of well-being around the midpoint of mental health.
What is languishing, and how can we conquer it?

Maintaining work/life balance working from home and returning to the office

The world around us is changing. Working nine to five is much less common, and today’s society can make real demands on our time and energy. It’s little wonder we can easily lose the balance between work and personal life from time to time. So if you’re feeling overwhelmed and overworked, it might be helpful to take a step back and recheck how you’re managing your priorities.

Musculoskeletal conditions and physical activity

Whether you’re active throughout the day or spend hours sitting at a computer, musculoskeletal (MSK) pain can affect any part of the body. Pain can start following an accident or injury, or it might build up gradually with no apparent cause. Although persistent pain is complex, appropriate physical activity can help you self-manage your symptoms while positively impacting your overall health and mental well-being.

Raised in a time of social media and smartphones: How it impacts personal interactions

Done right, social media platforms can offer young people valuable opportunities to expand their horizons. However, teenagers and young people who spend more than three hours a day on social media are more at risk of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and antisocial behaviour. As social media grows in popularity, we need to be aware of its impact on young people.
