Month: November 2018

Just four weeks left!

Every year it seems to come round even more swiftly. Yes, it’s only a month until the big day of too much: too much dinner, too much drinking, too much television. And usually not enough exercising or healthy living…


This week it is Alcohol Awareness Week, and this year the theme of Alcohol Awareness Week is “Change”. That’s because too often in British culture drinking is seen as an expectation, rather than a choice. There’s pressure to drink when out with people. The pub is a convenient place to meet, and of course, pubs serve alcohol.

Self Care Week

It’s Self Care Week this week when people are being encouraged to choose self-care for a healthier and happier life. Self Care Week is an annual national awareness week that focuses on encouraging self-care across communities, families and generations.


It’s considered that a man’s November moustache – called a “mo” for short – is a ribbon, in a similar way that other awareness campaigns have coloured ribbons. Men who “wear” this month-long ribbon are known as “Mo Bros”!
