Lose a Stone in 21 Days with Michael Mosley

Faced with the unprecedented stress and upheaval of lockdown, many of us found ourselves giving into temptation, overindulging in comfort foods and booze.

We've consumed far more and exercised much less and as a result piled on the pounds.

Now Dr Michael Mosley will devise a plan that make us feel good while it overhauls our health.

At a time when we need to protect ourselves as much as possible, he will take on a group of five volunteers - putting them on a very low calorie diet for 21 days in an attempt to help them get their health back on track.

Episode 1 will cover his own diet plan for the series, Episode 2 will focus on exercise and in Episode 3 Michael will look at boosting their immunity and wellbeing.

Alongside the contributors' individual journeys, Michael's wife and best-selling cookbook author Dr Clare Bailey will have a cooking segment in every episode packed full of low calorie, nutritious and delicious recipes and food tips.

Headspace: Unwind Your Mind

On the heels of Headspace Guide to Meditation and Headspace Guide to Sleep comes Unwind Your Mind, a fully interactive mindfulness experience designed to be accessible anytime, anywhere.

The familiar voices of Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe and Director of Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Eve Lewis Prieto, return to provide the viewer with three customisable paths: Meditation (a simple guided session), Relax (for a daily wind-down), or Sleep (to calm the mind and body before bed).

You can create a path based on you in-the-moment feelings and time constraints, and the Sleep journey can even end with a bedtime story.

With its welcoming animation, and featuring the thoughtful communication style that's made the Headspace app well known, Unwind Your Mind is a tool for anyone seeking to kick off or deepen their relationship with a meditation practice, or maybe just finally get a good night's rest.
