Now we’re properly into 2018, it’s time to start looking inside ourselves, to work on how we can be the best possible person, for not just the rest of the year, but for the rest of our lives. This issue, we examine how being yourself, and having the courage to be authentic, is the key to self-confidence.


“You can always improve ourselves through self-development,” writes confidence coach Lisa Phillips, “but forcing ourselves to be something we’re not because we feel society expects this of us can have a detrimental effect.”

As well as the usual mix of great features, this issue also comes with your 8-page Take A Moment mini magazine, some beautiful illustrated cityscape postcards and inspiring pull-out posters for your wall.

You might have noticed that the issue 9 cover says March – this is a production error and it should actually read February. We apologise for this error and any confusion it may cause.
