  • Can’t get no sleep?

    You’re not the only one. If Faithless’s Insomnia could’ve been written for you, read on, sleepy head.

  • 6 best wellbeing festivals

    Turns out festivals aren't just for mainlining pear cider - who knew?! Here are six wellbeing weekends to boost your health this summer. Namaste!

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Fitness challenge!

    There's nothing like a race looming to motivate you to go for a walk, run, swim or cycle on these chilly autumn mornings. So grab your Lycra and sign up for one of these sporty challenges pronto!

  • Splash! 6 outdoor swimming spots

    You might just have noticed that it's a bit hot out there. So it's a good time to dive into our guide to the best open water swimming locations in Bucks and Oxon. Just kindly refrain from bombing, running or petting please!

  • You cannot be serious!

    Ever wished you had your own tennis umpire to hand to judge the disputed line calls? Muddy tries out PlaySight at Stoke Park and enjoys a 'pro' moment.
