    Can you train yourself to sleep less?

    Sometimes 24 hours doesn’t feel like nearly enough time to get everything done — those to-do lists aren't going to check themselves.

    Especially when you're spending around eight hours of that time in bed.

    Norman and Tegan assess whether it's possible to train yourself to sleep less without any of the negatives.

    Why everything hurts when you turn 30

    It's an age-old adage that youth is wasted on the young – you don't know what you’ve got until it's gone.

    The aches and pains that start to linger longer as you approach your 30s can feel like a rite of passage.

    Norman and Tegan explore why this happens, and whether it's inevitable.

    A single glass of red wine for your health, yeah or nah?

    Much has been said about the single glass of red wine. It's good for you, it’s bad for you, it's good for you again.

    It can be confusing to follow.

    Norman and Tegan take on this age-old health question — does a single glass of red wine have health boosting benefits?

    Your emotional support water bottle is probably too big

    Do you have your water bottle beside you right now? How close are you to reaching your daily water goal?

    It can feel like a slog sometimes to meet the recommended two lites of water a day.

    Norman and Tegan pour over the evidence to find out whether it's REALLY necessary to drink that much.
