Can music really make us feel better?

We all recognise the power of music when it comes to our mood. Listening to certain songs can provoke happiness, sadness and even anger but can it really help us feel physically better? A story from back in 2014 by BBC Local Radio and featured on Telegraph.co.uk suggests it can. A survey carried out by BBC Local Radio found that 90% of respondents agreed listening to music can make them feel perkier when they are sick or faced with hard times. The most popular song, chosen by those surveyed, was Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. More than two-thirds of respondents said...

Stop Smoking Blog 5: One year on

Today I can confidently say that it has now been a whole year since I smoked a cigarette. This time last year I kicked the habit for good with the help of LloydsPharmacy’s Stop Smoking service. I’m proud to report that after 22 years as a smoker, there have been no relapses (well, apart from a few in the early days) and now I am completely free from smoking and the cravings that used to gnaw away at me. You might be wondering why I wanted to give up after 22 years of smoking. Well, a little over a year ago I found out that my wife was pregnant with twins. This provided the motivation I’d always needed to quit; I knew I wouldn’t want to smoke around my children and the thought of having to wash my hands, brush my teeth and change my clothes every time I wanted to play with them or hold them seemed ridiculous – all of that because I needed a cigarette? No chance. So after 22 years as a smoker, it was time to put down my lighter and stub out my last cigarette.

You can read all about my early experiences of quitting in my previous blogs...
