Pedal for mental health: The benefits of cycling during Mental Health Awareness Week

1 in 4 people in the UK experience mental health disorders every year. This reality highlights the pressing need for awareness, support, and empathy towards mental health problems and people who experience them. Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event to raise awareness about mental health disorders, its causes, and effects. This year, Mental Health Awareness Week falls onto Monday 13th of May to Sunday 19th of May. The theme of this year's Mental Health Awareness Week is 'movement', in hope to encourage individuals to incorporate movement into their daily habits. The NHS recommends at least 2.5 hours of exercise a week. However, incorporating daily movement not only allows individuals to enjoy fresh air and outdoors time but also triggers the release of 'happy hormones', which positively impact people's mental well-being.

Podiatrist expert reveals how to have perfect feet on your wedding day

With the average wedding lasting somewhere between 7 and 10 hours, your feet are going to get pretty tired. From pinching heels to dancing the night away, your feet are likely to take a battering when it comes to the big day.

Many people consider booking a hairstylist and makeup artist for the day, but we often forget our feet deserve the same care. Nothing can ruin your day more than discomfort.

Anabel Kingsley, Trichologist at Philip Kingsley, shares her expert advice ahead your big day.

While it's true that dandruff commonly pops up during times of stress (even when it's linked to a very happy occasion!) - luckily, there are many things you can do to help ensure your scalp is calm and comfortable on your big day. I don't recommend trying out new products right before a big event, so it's best so start prepping your scalp in the months before. More severe cases of dandruff (called seborrhoeic dermatitis) may also take a few weeks to get under control.
