Stay in bed or struggle in? How to know when to go back to work after an illness
If you come into the office with a cold or a bug, your boss may be happy, but your co-workers won’t thank you. GPs offer their advice on when to heal at home or return to the officeWe have all known colleagues who struggle into work when they are unwell, leaving a trail of germs that threaten the health of their co-workers – and then expect praise for their fortitude. Maybe you are one of them. So, should you do the decent thing and go home?According to the Office for National Statistics, 141m working days were lost in 2018, with minor illnesses such as colds the most common reason for absence. Although the days lost to sickness have been falling since the early 00s, with a sharp dip since the 2008 recession, the reason is probably not that we are getting healthier, but that we are more worried about job security. Presenteeism has tripled to a record high since 2010, according to a survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in 2018. Continue reading...

Can a yoga and sleep retreat cure my 20-year battle with insomnia?
A sleep retreat in the rugged hills of central Portugal, filled with sunshine, yoga, vegan food and kindness, promises a lasting cure for sleepless nightsI stepped into the glass-walled yoga shala and stared at the impressive rugged valley outside. It took me a second to realise I wasn’t alone. Vonetta Winter, teacher and co-owner of the centre, was sitting on a mat in cross-legged meditation – and I swear I could see a Ready Brek glow of peace around her. It was the start of a yoga and sleep retreat at Vale de Moses in the mountains of central Portugal, and I relaxed. This place had a good vibe. Maybe this really would be the final chapter in my 20-year story of insomnia. Continue reading...

For those of us looking to cut down on booze, it’s more urgently about aesthetics: can a wine without alcohol ever really taste, in any meaningful sense, like wine? Continue reading...

Lord Maclennan of Rogart obituary
Last leader of the SDP who oversaw its merger with the Liberal party in the late 1980sAs the third and last leader of the short-lived Social Democratic party, Robert Maclennan presided over its demise in 1987. An accidental leader, he lacked drive and colour when placed beside his predecessors at the head of the party, Roy Jenkins and David Owen.In 1981 he was one of 28 Labour MPs who followed Jenkins, Owen, Shirley Williams and Bill Rodgers in splitting from Labour and forming the SDP. Although not as newsworthy as “the Gang of Four”, Maclennan designed the structure of the new party, which, supposedly learning the lessons of Labour’s system, excluded the membership from making party policy. Following general elections in 1983 and 1987, when the SDP failed to gain more than a handful of MPs in either contest, a ballot of its members in 1987 agreed that the party should merge with the Liberals.
