Food memories.

Thinking about food, remembering meals, contemplating the next one... is all a lot more complex than we thought. Do read this fascinating article from The Guardian explaining the possible link between dementia and obesity. Mindfulness whilst eating definitely seems to be key.

Flood Advice!

My goodness, it's soggy out there! Lots of our patients have had trouble getting to us, and those who did, arrived wet and bedraggled. I'm sure there's a lot more rain to come, so if you are unfortunate enough to be caught in all things wild and stormy, we hope this information from BBC News proves useful. Meanwhile, the Chandos Clinic is a haven of warm and dry and we hope you reach us safely.

Reality check over a phone check!

The picture in this article could be my daughter, the light from her phone seeping through the duvet, first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It doesnt matter how much I rant, or plead, or bribe, she and it are inseperable. It saddens me beyond measure that this constant leeching has replaced those perfect bedtime hours lost in Jacqueline Wilson. My daughter is not alone in this addiction, judging by the figures in the article below from The Guardian, screen checking has become hard-wired for the majority of us. Occasionally I can instigate screen-free time; my tribe harrumph at first but soon we are laughing over board games and inventing new card games. Of course it doesnt last, but it's good to know that they can still operate phone free. Even though I try to enforce "no screens at the table", my eldest seems to have slipped his in to breakfast, so I'm going to introduce Rule 7. As for Rule 9, definitely the most shocking. Really??!!
