Wellbeing

  • Muddy reviews: Indian head massage + reflexology

    THE LOCATION Slap-bang in the centre of pretty South Oxon market town, Thame. It’s adjacent to the main car park, in which you can park for three hours for free (but avoid it on a Tuesday when the weekly market is in situ).   THE VIBE I’ll level with you – this isn’t a luxe […]

  • Muddy gets clean!

    Obviously Muddy is a paragon of clean living (*cough*) so we were at the front of the queue to try out a new one-day wellbeing workshop on this subject. Hey, why are you laughing?

  • How to flex your life

    Is life an exhausting loop of sleep, work, chores, repeat? Yep. Need to make a change but now sure what or how? Er, yes. Read our interview with hot new self-help author Annie Auerbach. She has the answers!

  • Wonderful weddings

    Planning a wedding? Don't do anything until you've consulted our comprehensive wedding guide for all 21 Muddy counties. The dreamiest venues, florists, photographers and more.

  • What’s up doc?

    Can't get an appointment at your local GP surgery? Go see one on tour instead! Dr Michael Mosley is rocking up in Wycombe and is on hand to answer all your impertinent questions. Muddy meets him.

  • Work/life balance nailed

    The juggle is real - and not going anywhere - so how the hell can we to get it right?! Let's ask the work/life balance experts for some help.

  • Burn baby burn!

    Muddy HQ is even more fragrant than usual right now - thanks to the coolest new indie candle brand on the block.

  • Run for the hills!

    Actually don't just yet - let me tell about these brilliantly inspiring running books first - all the inspo you need to pull on your trainers. Plus, fun local races to sign up for!

  • Witness the fitness!

    Finding it hard to kickstart that hardcore new exercise regime? Buy some slinky new kit and you'll be sprinting around the park faster than Mo Farah (possibly).

  • Are you sober curious?

    Whether you're doing Dry January or merely cutting down, we're all re-examining our relationship with alcohol right now after too much December carousing (and some pretty dodgy photos to be honest). Could "sober curious" be for you?

  • How to be happy in 2019

    New Year, new chance to give yourself a great big shot of positive energy with one of these 28 inspirational ideas.
