But if none of those great activities are available, he’ll also happily chew our shoes, dig holes or break into the chicken coop. Megan Blandford with her dog, Danger.  This is one reason we…

The 3 lies we tell ourselves that make us truly miserable

We tend to think that a lot of things make us unhappy: how little we earn based on how much we give, the stupid things our cubicle mate Sarah says (which stick in our head like the lyrics of the latest Taylor Swift song) or that we didn’t achieve that “perfect” body yet again this year.

Did you forget International Men's Day? Don't worry – the men's rights activists did too

It may come as a surprise to you that it was International Men’s Day (IMD) on Sunday. If you didn’t know about it, don’t feel bad: very few people did. That’s because the only time IMD gets a mention is on the 8th of March each year – International Women’s Day. Worldwide Google searches for IMD skyrocket at the beginning of March each year and then disappear for another 12 months.
