It was the hottest June on record apparently and between slapping on the sunscreen and jumping in the paddling pool, we’ve covered a broad mix of subjects here on Midlife On Earth.
We took a depressing look in the bathroom mirror and debated whether children actually can turn your hair grey.
We took two first-time mega concert goers to a Coldplay gig and learned enough lessons to offer parents a few tips if they’re planning anything similar with their children.
We looked at the prostate cancer risks affecting men in their 40s and discussed why knowledge is power when it comes to defeating the most common male cancer in the UK.
We shared some tips and reasons why all runners should consider joining a running club.
And, finally, we looked at the benefits of active travel in terms of personal and planetary health, as part of the Climate Change Collective.
Also catching our eye this month…
Elsewhere, here are a few of the articles, interviews, podcasts and things that caught our eye over the month of June:
