MAKE SEPTEMBER TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF WHAT’S USUALLY A GLORIOUS MONTH, WEATHER WISE AND HEAD OUT ON CHARITY INSPIRED WALKS, RUNS AND TREKS TO HELP BOOST YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS. THE KIDS MAY BE BACK AT SCHOOL, BUT THERE’S STILL PLENTY FOR ALL THE FAMILY TO LOOK FORWARD TO SATURDAY SUNDAY MONDAY 1 If you fancy combining health and culture, then the production of Bernard Shaw’s Doctor’s Dilemma could be just the thing. The story follows a Harley Street doctor and his revolutionary tuberculosis treatment experiments. Tickets start at £12, visit www.national theatre.org.uk 2 Having migraines can be a right headache. In fact, one in eight people in the UK is a ected by them.

With memory walks arranged across the UK – in correspondence with World Alzheimer’s Month – why not locate your nearest walk and raise money for a worthy cause? www.memorywalk.org.uk 8 The London Science Museum helps answer all-important questions such as ‘How did you get here?’ and ‘What do you think you are?’ in its Who Am I? exhibition. The ideal day out to teach kids about their bodies, health and science in a fun environment. www. sciencemuseum.org.uk 9 The Paralympics may be nishing today and marking the close of the London 2012 Games, but that doesn’t mean that exercise needs to be neglected in the process.

Meningitis Awareness Week starts today, raising awareness of this serious disease. www.meningitis.org Mental or emotional pressure can rapidly turn into stress, which can lead to a plethora of illnesses; if you nd yourself feeling anxious or irritable, taking time to relax is crucial. And with it being National Spa Week (17 to 23), what better excuse to indulge in some much-needed pampering? www.spaweek.co.uk 22 Do you live in a rural area? If so, Rural Health Week (starting today) is dedicated to health issues that a ect these areas in particular.
