  1. Description: Dilly, Bumble, and Barnaby are three of the luckiest dogs in the world. They live on a farm in the outstandingly beautiful Peak District area of Derbyshire, in the north of England, where they are photographed in all sorts of adorable poses by their owner, Villager Jim. Whether they are snoozing on the couch, digging up plants, or chasing hens around the backyard, their irresistible charm means all is forgiven. Their exploits are followed by 50,000 people on Facebook, and they also appear on a calendar and a range of greetings cards. The dogs and their owner have even been seen on TV, with Villager Jim eschewing his anonymity for the day. But despite all the attention, they are still happiest sitting on their master's bench in the sunshine. Upstaging all the other residents of the farm—human and animal—these three gorgeous labradors will find their way into your heart.

  10. Description: Break unhealthy eating habits and lose weight for good with simple meditations and delicious recipes using natural, unprocessed ingredients. Many of us fall easily into patterns of “mindless” eating. We pick at food while working at our computers, we reach for the quickest—and usually the unhealthiest—snacks for a quick energy boost, we don’t take proper lunch breaks, and we are constantly distracted while we eat. We have lost a lot of the enjoyment of eating and as a result we are guilty of just “shovelling” food into our bodies. Mindful eating applies the principles of mindfulness to our everyday eating habits.

  15. Description: A Spanish-style gin and tonic or ‘gin tonica’, is made with a premium gin and the best quality tonic water, combined with bitters and various herbs, spices, flowers and fruits that will complement the botanicals of a specific gin. It is served over ice in an oversized balloon glass – the idea being that the shape enables the drinker to enjoy all the lovely aromas their drink gives off. For a cocktail with only two ingredients, the flavour potential is staggering! Making a gin tonica is an intricate process, sometimes taking a barman as long as 15 minutes to deliver the ideal drink. The ice has to be dense so that it melts slowly, the glass might be spritzed with a fine layer of citrus oil, chilled to perfection, with the tonic poured in delicately. No detail is ignored, the wait is part of the experience, and the result is absolutely delicious. Attention to detail and respect for the classic is what truly elevates the Spanish gin tonica above all others. With more gin brands and styles of tonic available than ever before, and 40 inspired recipes here to try at home, there has never been a better time to discover the joy of the gin .

  24. Description: If you're having trouble sleeping, mindfulness can help. Do you worry about the fact that you are awake when you want to be asleep, and how tired you will feel during the day? You are not alone - sleep problems are often triggered by stress, illness and getting older. However, practising mindfulness meditation regularly can help. We can learn to become less reactive and more accepting of being awake, which in turn reduces our anxiety around not sleeping. There are 25 practices and activities that introduce mindfulness and how to practise it. These include meditations for night- and daytime, as well as everyday activities that shine a light on our habitual patterns and behaviours and help create better habits to support the body's self-regulating sleep system. Learn how to keep a sleep diary, too, which allows you to make notes about what you discover when you pay attention to what helps and hinders you in sleeping.
