Then there’s juggling the brushes that’ll (hopefully) give you accidentally perfect, Olsen twin-inspired waves, and choosing the right heat setting on your hairdryer without burning your scalp. That’s before we’ve touched on the inevitable arm ache that ensues after just a few minutes…”

How To Access Affordable Therapy, No Matter Where You Are

“Mental health coverage and substance use disorder services have been recognized as a primary need through most individual and small group health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid (though it varies by state and plan).

A Day In The Life Of: The Founder of a Running Community

“I mostly work at home from my kitchen, which is a lovely, bright space with a massive table and huge windows so I can always see the sky!

We often have team catch-ups on the move, out for a walk or a run by the river, where we can clear our heads and come up with our best ideas. I’ve interviewed people on runs in the woods, and some of my team have got their work done in cafes in Wales after a bike ride, or in the mountains in France. Not only does This Mum Runs champion headspace and freedom for our community, but we’re building it into the fabric of the business too.”
