Both a busy city schedule and the rising prices in London can be demotivating for Londoners. So there is no surprise why so many people cannot commit to keeping fit and healthy. Words: Gemma Smith, Subeditor: Shannon Cowley Most Londoners face a non-stop lifestyle topped with depressing weather and high-end city pressures to earn money. This can make keeping fit and healthy almost impossible for Londoners who are desperate to find a way out and make healthier choices. “I’ll do that tomorrow instead,” are words that young Londoners are guilty of saying. It's easy to opt for the grab-and-go food option when you only have a sharp 30-minute lunch break. Not only that but exercising in the evening can seem painful and tiring: a huge unwanted effort when caught up in a nine-to-five lifestyl

Movember is upon us, the facial hair is growing and so is the money raised for charity. The Movember Foundation dedicates an entire month to raising awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity, amongst many other illnesses.

Finally there's something we can all do this November, it's World Vegan Month. Many of us still envision vegans as anaemic, long-haired, kaftan wearing tree huggers. But think again, from Beyoncé to Bill Gates, super celebs and super bloggers everywhere have made veganism the food trend of the year. Words: Isabella Sullivan, Subeditor: Shannon Cowley According to the Vegan Society, the number of vegans in the UK has doubled in the last nine years to 300,000, with no signs of slowing down. Even fashion bible Vogue has jumped on the Vegan bandwagon (if Vogue says its good… it is). As well as being ridiculously chic, veganism contributes to weight loss, reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure and a huge array of cancers. So is veganism a realistic and su

To celebrate the end of National Spa Week we take a look at the health benefits of treatment and relaxation. It is nearly over, but you can still get a spa day bargain in London all year round. Words: Shannon Cowley, Subeditor: Gemma Smith It may be the last day of National Spa Week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grab yourself a luxurious deal. A trip to the spa could be just what you need to feel refreshed, motivated and de-stressed. Sure, paying the rent and getting the food shopping might be higher on your priority list, but it’s just as important to treat yourself and relax. And the good thing is you don’t have to spend mega-money to do this. There are endless online deals that will help you get a spa break in without feeling over indulgent. So, what exactly are the healt
