Main headliner: Try these simple stress busters

Stress-relieving tips to try every day
We all suffer from stress from time to time. The good news is there are lots of ways to relieve it. So, if you’re feeling the strain, why not try some of these simple stress busters?

Healthy living tips from the experts

The tell-tale signs of a heart attack in women
Women experience heart attack symptoms differently, meaning they are less likely to seek medical help as they misjudge the likelihood of an emergency. Make sure you know the signs.

Do you have an anger problem?
Want to know the difference between a healthy expression of frustration and an ongoing problem? We asked the experts about the causes of unhealthy anger issues and how to treat them.

What you need to know about becoming a carer
Young Carers Awareness Day falls this week. We investigate the UK’s hidden care crisis, and ask an expert for tips on knowing your rights.

Is it safe to skip your period on the pill?
For decades women have been taking the combined pill for 21 days at a time, with a seven-day pill break and withdrawal bleed in between. But new evidence suggests that this may be unnecessary.

Can you really be fat and fit?
When we think of fitness, we often think of super-slim models or muscular men. But what if you don’t fit this mould? We ask an expert whether it’s possible to be fit and healthy at any size.

This week’s recipes:

Feta and beetroot hummus
Want to up your hummus game? Roasted beetroot makes for a delicious and colourful twist on everyone’s favourite dip.

Apricot and cranberry muffins
Swap your usual lunchtime treat for these fruit-filled muffins, topped with oats and a tangy orange zest for a natural sweetness.
