My piece on gum health and heart disease in My Weekly (published 11/2/17)

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Flossing. Using those little interdental brushes I’ve imagined as mini toilet brushes ever since a friend said, ‘The ones that look like mini toilet brushes?’… it’s not hard.

And yet… How often does this basic self-care practice get missed?

In case it ever falls off your daily routine, I hope this feature, talking about some of the heart health benefits, will encourage you to take that 4 minutes a day to take better care of your teeth, gums and heart.

Is insomnia affecting your weight and health? (My cover story in My Weekly, 28/4/15)

Oh, the irony, posting this when Rainbow MagnifiCat woke me up at2015-04-26 10.52.05 3.45am wanting to be fed today (she has dry food out the whole time). I normally feed her at 5am and go back to bed but this morning, between 3.45 and 5, she turned the light on a dozen times and I got the opportunity to play with several self-help tools for getting back to sleep (of course, I COULD have locked her out…) myself.

On the plus side, my nights of not great sleep are now (after early childhood to late 20s chronic insomnia – I nearly missed my Drama GCSE exam due to being up all night with anxiety and finally falling into a deep sleep) almost entirely behind me.

There are lots of things we can do to support ourselves. And getting to know our own insomnia triggers and quick fixes is essential as we’re all different.

Anyway, hope you find these tips helpful and if you’d like me to send you the Sleep Log I mention, just email me (eve@feelbettereveryday.co.uk) with My Weekly / Sleep Log in the subject header.

What helps you get a good night’s sleep?

Metta,
