Dig Out Your Party Hat • A recipe for the perfect celebration? People, food and actively marking a positive life event (a birthday, successful work project, graduation, nailing your first 5K…).

Beet That • You might've heard about the workout- boosting power of beetroot juice. Now, scientists are delving deeper into how it works. When exercisers consumed dietary nitrate – the molecule naturally found in the purple sip and credited with improving endurance – before completing a set of leg moves, it prompted a seven per cent increase in their muscle force compared to a placebo.

Soak scientists believe the health boost could be a result of the activity helping people to manage stress and fall asleep more easily. Candle and bath bomb optional.
