The one thing you absolutely shouldn’t do if you wake up in the night

    Keith is upset because he was woken up by the nightclubbers (Photo: Blend Images) All you want is a good night's sleep. Eight hours of kip, uninterrupted and peaceful. But it's 3am and you're awake. It happens to pretty much all of us. Whether it's a delivery truck, loud sex noises, or a rampant fox knocking over your rubbish bins, you probably wake up in the night. And chances are, you struggle to switch off again. There are a couple of simple things you can do to help your body drift back off. Or, actually, two things you should very much avoid. Dr. Michael Breus, sleep specialist and author of 'The Power of When', told Business Insider about two simple things you should prevent yourself from doing if you want to reduce the amount of time you're awake after rousing.

Britain could have fast track back to EU after Brexit: European Parliament chief negotiator

    Guy Verhofstadt Britain could be handed an accelerated path to re-join the European Union if it decides to reapply for membership after it has left the bloc, the European Parliament’s chief Brexit negotiator has claimed. Guy Verhofstadt, a former Belgian prime minister and arch European federalist, said that future British governments would have a way back into Europe if they decided to reverse course after Brexit, possibly even on a fastrack. That is always possible, he said in an interview in the US during the visit of Theresa May, They can always reintroduce a request for membership of the European Union. Certainly, we have enough experience to make it a little bit a faster process than what is normal, he added. Mr Verhofstadt’s remarks to Al Jazeera English reflect a s...

Donald Trump and Theresa May caught holding hands in White House

    Theresa May and Donald Trump have been photographed holding hands as they took a walk through the White House. The candid moment was caught by a photographer moments before the two world leaders held a joint news conference. It is unclear who initiated the contact as they walked along The Colonnade. Ms May is the first world leader to meet the Republican in Washington after his inauguration last Friday. Both leaders used the news conference to reinforce their commitment to the "special relationship" between the US and UK. We pledge our lasting support to this most special relationship, Mr Trump said. He added that friendly relations between the UK and US was "one of the great forces in history for justice and for peace". Ms May said an "even stronger special relationship" ...

The Muslim country Trump isn’t banning refugees from

    Saudi Arabia, one of the world's most prominent Muslim nations which has previously been associated with terrorism and religious extremism, is likely to escape censure from Donald Trump. The US leader is expected to sign a draft executive order blocking refugee admissions from Syria, barring all refugees from the rest of the world for at least 120 days and suspending immigration from Syria and six other predominantly Muslim countries, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, for at least 30-days. But the document, which could still be amended before it is officially signed, appears to make no mention of Saudi Arabia, despite the Middle-Eastern country's associations with the largest terror attack on US soil. Of the 19 hijackers involved in the 9/11 attacks on the World...

Prepare for barrage of storms in February as freeze gives way to dramatic wind and rain

    Britain's big freeze will give way to a barrage of storms set to unleash heavy downpours and gales from next week. Cold conditions from the Continent will finally lift allowing milder but much more unsettled weather to swing in from the Atlantic. A dramatic u-turn in the weather at the end of this month with trigger storms through into February, experts warn. The Met Office said a change to more unsettled conditions will arrive this weekend with heavy rain and gales on the way for some. It follows a bitter, foggy, and icy fortnight which has brought chaos on the roads and transport networks to parts of Britain. Thermometers plunged below freezing across the south this week while temperatures in the north hit 13C on Thursday. Much of the UK will start to feel milder in the ...
