Creativity ‘closely linked to mental illness’

Hmm. Am I pursuing the right career? Or is someone waiting to tell me something?
This recent BBC article suggests a strong and consistent link between creativity and a variety of mental disorders. The correlation is apparently ‘particularly strong for writers’. Time to give up the day job? Nah. Not yet.

Proof that Britain is lazy

It’s been in the news today… inactivity is as unhealthy for you as smoking. I’m sure this is probably true, even though it’s bound to be replaced by another ‘bad health’ fad next month.

 

What is worrying, are these statistics from The Economist magazine regarding activity amongst nations across the globe. By their reckoning, Britain ranks pretty low down for activity, across males and females. Time to get off that couch, or die.
