Davina McCall: Sex, Myths & the Menopause  (available on 4OD)

We find it frustrating that women don’t feel that they can talk about the menopause and apparently so does Davina! You will have seen over the last 12 months that we’ve run a number of talks with VHK Education Dr Heidi Kerr and Dr Victoria Hobbs who offer appointments via Health and Her platform. We’ve discussed this taboo subject and all the battles that come along with it. So we love that this is now getting some air time on our TV screens and raising awareness of what the menopause is really about. Davina talks to many women from different backgrounds with a range of different experiences who are all brave enough to share their story and help you to realise that you are not alone.

What they said

testimonials May 04, 2021

We are lucky enough to have some incredibly engaged parents and teenagers within our membership.  

Here are two of them telling you what they love about the HOW Inspire membership.

Two very different answers going to prove that each girl takes different things away from each session. Bethan, aged 12, and Claudia, aged 14.


But... if you are not happy then we are not happy. 

Not every digital or off the shelf product in the world will appeal to everyone. 

Your daughter's future is important to us, we want her to enjoy, engage and get huge value from what we do so if you are not happy then you can leave no questions asked within the first 30 days and get your money back. 

We are here to help the girls to find that spark, the moment that might change their path in life. For them to be inspired and engaged. 

By going live 7-8pm on Thursdays BST we hold a safe space to engage with our members and invite speakers, role models and mentors who come and...

How to inspire the next generation of awesome females in a digital world.

HOW to inspire the next generation of awesome females in a digital world

Discover how to inspire your teenage girl so you can watch her flourish and get excited about her future rather than simply hoping this will happen at school.

If you are a parent or guardian of a teenage girl one of the most important things will probably be the education and future of your child.

Unfortunately, most of us rely solely on the education system to inspire and encourage our teens. 

Schools are focused on passing exams and are limited in what they can teach outside of the National Curriculum. This often means our teens are leaving school feeling uninspired, disinterested and unsure what is out there for them in the world, whether they do well in their school exams. 

There is another way. 

This is not just something only available to people who are well connected or who go to private school. All of us can look outside the traditional school system to open up a network of support for...

1% better parenting


Parenting.

Let’s just get it out there. It is tough.

It has twists and turns like no other road in life.

The highs and the lows are bigger than the highest mountain climb and there is NO instruction manual.

When we have our babies we gather and grow a support network.

Baby groups, playgroups, surrounding ourselves with other people doing what we are doing. Supporting and nurturing ourselves through this new time, safe in the knowledge that everyone else has hard times too. 

Then that all stops.

Life gets in the way and we muddle along knowing everyone else has struggles too but not really looking to talk about it. 

This is our first full day dedicated to parents.

Our membership parents told us that they need this. 

So, we provided it. 

The HOW People are there for our teens. The HOW Inspire membership is for teen girls 11-16 yrs all over the world to connect, learn and be inspired. 

Every teen girl comes with parents or...

Why Bendylegs?

bendylegs granola Mar 29, 2021

10 years.

An actual decade.
 
On this day 10 years ago was the first time I revealed the branding and new packaging of the granola I had started to make on a bigger scale at home. The recipe from my wonderful, Canadian cousin Becky  that I had started making and selling in paper bags in the local market, a long time before the shelves were stacked with different granolas.
 
 
People loved it and wanted more. 
 
Some local shops agreed to stock it as a trial so I set about trying to persuade the cafes locally that Bendylegs Granola, fruit compote and yogurt was actually something that people would pay good money for on a breakfast or brunch menu like they did in Canada, Australia and New Zealand at that time. 
 
This was greeted with a considerable amount of scepticism in South Wales.
 
"Really? Instead of or as well as a bacon sandwich?"
"We can try it, I guess"
 
But. It had to look nice on the shelf. The paper bag wasn't quite...

Children's Mental Health Week - HOW can we help?

1-7th February is Children's Mental Health Week.

This year, more than any other, we are seeing more and more children really struggling.

Uncertainty, family stresses, financial worries at home, no school - then school - then no school, not seeing friends, no play dates, no birthday parties, no sport, no clubs, no swimming, no museums, being asked to keep away from friends in the park. 

What can we do to help them now and in the months ahead?

What practical steps and ground work can we do now?

 

1. A little bit of routine 

HOW can routines help our anxiety?

As adults make lots of decisions every day but so do our kids, especially teens.

What to wear, what to eat, what to do for the day, what piece of work to finish first.

If you have too many decisions to make then that this can increase anxiety

Try having some "certainty anchors” built into your day.

These are things that make parts of our day solid, anchored and unchanged. 

This is harder at the moment...

7 Healthy Social Media Habits

For The HOW People by Jess Strange: Mountain Biker. Film maker. Social Media Influencer

www.thehowpeople.com 

@velomejess 

It’s easy to fall into the social media black hole where you find yourself scrolling for hours catching up on what all your friends and celebrities are up to. Even though social media is a fantastic tool for communicating with people, learning new skills and for getting inspiration, it’s essential to take control of how we use social media, and how often. To help prevent you from falling into the social media black hole, here are a few of my top tips for healthier social media habits.

1. Follow Inspiring Accounts 

You have the control to follow and unfollow whatever accounts you like. Of course, friends and family go without saying, following those your closest with is a great way to show support for one another!
Outside of your social circle, think about what kind of things you enjoy, like animals. I love cats, and they make...
