Colds, coughs and aching muscles – flu season is here and don’t we all know it? Well Actually’s external expert, Katrina Cepinova reveals 5 immune boosting tips to see you through this winter and beyond

Will comfort eating put you in a happy & contented mood this winter? Nutritionist Rob Hobson explains how and why comfort food can boost our mood

There is plenty of evidence to show that what we eat is linked to how we feel, but the relationship is sometimes complex.

It has also been shown that many health conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and PMS are affected by mood and that, in some cases addressing what you eat can help manage them.

Mood and food can also be thought of as a two-way street, as either your mood dictates what you eat or what you eat (or don’t eat) influences your mood, which may be due to an insufficient intake of certain nutrients.

What about comfort eating?

Comfort eating is common in the winter as a way of people trying to boost their mood. A recent survey by wellness brand
