More now than ever people are prioritising their health and wellness. As consumers in general, we’re more informed about our lifestyle choices and purchases. There’s a whole world of technology available to track and monitor various health and fitness aspects and businesses are putting more focus on workplace wellbeing.With this at the forefront of everybody’s minds, it’s serendipitous and fortunate for us that Ü Health & Wellness have brought the emerging healthcare discipline that is Lifestyle Medicine to Kent and the South East. From what we’ve learnt so far, it is – quite literally – life-altering and something that everyone

Picture in your mind’s eye a career that opens professional doors, provides a healthy work/life balance and is both fulfilling and enriching. The care industry is widely regarded as one of the most rewarding career paths out there today. The service itself is essential and the need for quality care is on the rise. The industry is growing every day with an abundance of opportunities.What’s the best way to gage what it’s really like? Go straight to the source and speak to the employees. The team at Bluebird Care in Sevenoaks is recruiting for the next generation of carers and

Welcome back to our series on Will writing. To summarise; we’ve teamed up with Manak Solicitors to bring you a 4-part blog series that aims to take away any confusion you may have when it comes to writing your Will and then executing a Will. Why are we doing this? Because a frightfully high of number of us in the UK (around 26 million adults) currently have no formal instructions post-death. If you didn’t catch the first blog or fancy a recap, read ‘Will Writing: Back To Basics’ where we covered the what, why and how of Wills. What is a Will? Why do

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the years, it’s that Sevenoaks is a town brimming with stories - with its rich history, buzzing business hub and remarkable residents. Many journalists spend hours actively seeking out a good scoop. Not in Sevenoaks, everywhere we look there are incredible tales just waiting to be told.Such was the case when we visited Terry Brett, an independent living resident at Rockdale Housing Association. When we caught wind that we had a local sports hero in our midst, we couldn’t wait for the opportunity to immortalise Terry’s words into online print for our community

How many times have you put off thinking about writing your Will? Perhaps it doesn’t feel urgent or maybe you don’t consider yourself to have enough money or assets to make it worthwhile. You’re not alone in thinking this. In fact, The National Will Register® reported last year that “42% of adults in the UK have not spoken to anyone about what should happen to their estate upon their passing.”Nosheen Bukhari, Wills & Probate Director at Manak Solicitors says, “Contemplating the inevitability of our own mortality might not be the most pleasant thought. However, creating a Will is a crucial

Financial wellbeing – what’s that? The Money and Pensions Service defines the term as “feeling secure and in control of your finances, both now and in the future.”The cost-of-living crisis and inflation made for a tumultuous economy in 2023 so you’d be forgiven for finding this a tricky concept to wrap your mind around. Perhaps that’s why, when we clicked onto the NH Wealth website, the words “reducing financial anxiety and fear” shone out like a beacon on the page. Music to our ears!Nick Hawkins, founder of NH Wealth, is a Sevenoaks-based independent financial adviser who rejects pushy sales speak

When we Googled images of an osteopath clinic, as you’d maybe expect, we saw a dour white room with an uncomfortable-looking therapy bed, a life-sized skeleton model standing lifelessly in the corner and a pitiful clock hanging on the wall… The Sevenoaks Clinic urges you to dispel these dated preconceptions.Think, instead, of a chic space nestled inside one of Sevenoaks’ finest lifestyle and fitness studios with mirrored walls, wooden floors, plants hanging from the ceiling and a rack of weights and exercise balls lining the room *love heart eyes*. Could it be that The Sevenoaks Clinic have breathed new life

"Congratulations!” … “I’m so proud of you!” … “You’re doing amazing!” …I’m sure you have no problem with saying this to your friends, family and children when they’ve accomplished something fantastic. But do you ever reward yourself for YOUR achievements?Sadly, many of us are crippled with embarrassment when compliments are bestowed upon us or cringe at the very idea of public recognition for fear of looking boastful or pompous.But there’s one lady out there who is hellbent on changing that narrative by encouraging people to not shy away from their spectacular achievements but celebrate them instead - no matter how
