The A-list's favourite relaxation expert Gerad Kite teaches calmness - Daily Mail

At the heart of his philosophy is his fervent belief that we need to get back in tune with the human body’s natural cycle. You eat a sandwich at your desk and barely taste it. More tea or coffee to stave off that mid-afternoon dip. By evening, you're cross-eyed and edgy, so of course you have a drink to take the edge off. The pace of life today is so frenetic that many of us are working against the natural rhythms of our bodies all the time - and suffering from fatigue, stress and even ill health as a result. As we get older, we often accept low-grade health as a norm. We feel tired all the time but don't connect it to not eating properly or not getting enough exercise. It's not that we're incapable of feeling as energised and relaxed in our 40s (and beyond) as we were in our 20s - it's just that we don't realise that we are moving further and further out of balance. Many people say they're not 'morning people' and simply accept that half the day is written off. Others slump mid-afternoon, calling it a 'carb crash', or think that an evening in front of the TV is all they can manage at the end of a long day. But what these symptoms are actually telling us is that our natural body 'clock' is running out of sync.

London's Big Ben has chimed six seconds fast over the past fortnight - Daily Mail

How 'temperamental' Big Ben has chimed six seconds fast over the past fortnight Distinctive bongs on 156-year-old clock have been out of time, experts say Mistimed chimes have even interrupted BBC Radio 4's PM news broadcast House of Commons... But experts have revealed the 156 year-old clock has become increasingly ‘temperamental’ - and has been up to six seconds fast over the last two weeks. The mistimed bongs have even interrupted broadcasts of BBC Radio 4’s PM news programme, prompting the House of Commons' three specialist clocksmiths to take action. Steve Jaggs, the keeper of the clock, told BBC Radio 4: ‘We carry out regular checks because this is a mechanical cost. The clocksmiths have removed weights from the famous pendulum in an attempt to rebalance the Gothic clock. But the experts said they ‘don’t know how it happened’ and compared the clock to ‘running a car for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for the last 156 years’. You have to make a very gradual change by adding coins to speed the clock up or taking weight off to slow it back down.

How last-minute Christmas shoppers can dodge the Hong Kong crowds - South China Morning Post (subscription)

So, in the shopper’s paradise that is Hong Kong, let’s not forget the crafty pop-ups, unique boutiques tucked away in back streets and alternative concept stores a safe distance from the Christmas crush. You will want to avoid the obvious areas in the days leading up to the 25th, but there are some streets in Central that are quieter – and many of them happen to be dotted with great independent gift shops. Stocking both vintage and new products, General Store on Gage Street offers a fine range of items to suit almost any budget. Many of the larger items are vintage pieces, all of which come from Japan, such as a bijou pendulum wall clock. Just across Aberdeen Street from there, Gough Street is peppered with gift stores, which have similar themes but quite different offerings. Stores such as Homeless (renamed Hohohomeless for the season) are ideal for stocking fillers and funky Christmas decorations. SEE ALSO: Four Hong Kong outdoor Christmas markets, and three indoors if it rains Lovers & Friends offer bags and shoes for tween, teens and those who are older but still cool, while Madura offers bags and cushions, some of which might appeal to... Sheer, for lingerie if you’re looking for a romantic Christmas gift, and WOAW, a concept store packed with items such as mugs, phone covers and other gadgets from around the world.
