THG is divided into five key sections: mind, body, fuel, fitness and sex. Most articles fit neatly into one or more of these categories and provide an informal structure for the magazine, without indexing each individual topic as you might expect to find in a book.
By highlighting these topic headings, we also hope that readers will begin to think of these areas of their own lives in a positive way and seek-out opportunities to develop themselves.
