Uncertainty: A unique kind of torture

Aug 25, 2020

How to love running (by someone who hated it)

Aug 25, 2020

You may have noticed that since lockdown, there has been an 8,794% increase in the number of runners on the streets (not a real statistic, but you know what I mean), and I'll be honest, I wasn't remotely interested in joining them!

Apr 09, 2020

The full moon last night was actually a supermoon and the biggest full moon of the year - and apparently it might be sending a few of us crazy - even the word lunatic came from the latin word 'luna' and was meant to mean moon-sick. Have you felt it?

As always, we look for the science.
