Pelvic muscles are rarely talked about, but they are extremely important. They are a powerful set of muscles that work with your back and abs to hold up your core. A lot of women in London - when you take into account riding the tube and sitting at a desk all day - lead very sedentary lives, which is the worst thing for the pelvic floor.
There are only 12 more days until the clocks go forward - when you'll lose an hour's sleep and be confronted colder, darker evenings. It also often triggers the onset of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in nearly 1 in 3 people in the UK.

Londoners live fast-paced lives, working hard and playing hard, too. This is why it's especially important to set yourself up for the day ahead with a good breakfast. But what to have? We asked nutritionist Cassandra Barns to explain just why porridge is such a good, healthy option.
How much do you know about Greek wine? We thought so. Ahead of London's Greek Wine Festival, we spoke to Theodore Kyriakou, the founder of The Greek Larder, to find out what you need to know.
It's an undeniably lovely thing to do, strolling to Columbia Road Market on a Sunday to buy fresh flowers. But there's something you can't escape - you're buying a dying commodity. This is one of the main reasons why savvy Londoners are veering towards house plants.
Eczema is a medical condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. It mostly affects children, but can affect adults too - more than six million people in the UK suffer from it. So what can you do to improve your condition?
Here, Professor Graham Stokes, Bupa's Global Director of Dementia Care, shares five tips on what you can do when talking to a person with dementia, to ensure you put the person first, not the condition, making them feel at ease and reduce their feelings of fright, emotion and insecurity:
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
