The months seem to pass so quickly – Easter has passed and May is upon us and Christmas will be with us soon. I say this without wishing 2017 away but more as a little prompt for us all to be mindful of time and how quickly it passes. I have been reminded again about the beauty of appreciating moments — the art of being mindful. And this does not mean just sitting in a still quiet place to meditate. The great news is we can be mindful during our everyday life. Perhaps you paint, then become lost in every single brush stroke. Perhaps when you go for a walk, you enjoy the moment, the breeze on your face, the chirping of the birds and the movement of the trees. Even while you are sitting in stationary traffic, be mindful of your breathing, the very air providing you essentials for life. It’s in the art of slowing down that we truly start to live and treasure the moments. Decide not to live your life so quickly that it’s simply over in a blink. A few exciting things that have been happening… last month we published the latest book in The Health Specialists’ Series, entitled Happy, Healthy Nutrition and received Amazon #1 status as did the first eBook Happy, Healthy Kids. By the time you read this two more eBooks in the series will have been published on Amazon: Happy, Healthy Fitness and Happy, Healthy Intimacy. I hope you are enjoying the series. Finally, as always, it’s my pleasure to present another outstanding issue of Great Health Guide TM magazine. Along with some excellent articles, we feature exercise, specifically in ‘Starting a Program’ and ‘Exercising at Home’. Also, articles from our physiotherapists discussing ‘Young Children and Contact Sports’ and ‘Dealing with Back Pain’.
I do hope you receive much value to your health from this new issue. To you great health. Kath x
