Normally when I go on vacation with my wife Anne we combine it with work, of some sort. Even if it’s simply meeting up with someone who lives in the part of the world we are travelling to, it is very rare we miss such an opportunity. This time it is different.
To celebrate my 70th birthday and our 46th anniversary we are going on what Anne calls a ‘real’ vacation. We are going to the Maldives, a set of coral islands in the Indian Ocean. They are situated off the southern tip of India and all we can do there is to swim or snorkel in the lagoon or sunbathe and relax. I do not know anyone who lives on these islands, so there is no excuse…
Even I have to recharge my batteries and I especially need it as 2016 is going to be my busiest year yet, out of the last 50 years. Good Health Coaching is set for a huge expansion and my desire to find the cleanest and healthiest foods is greater than ever. This has already started with ReallyHealthyPasta.com
Fear not if you wanted some really interesting information to read as every day I publish important news on my NaturallyHealthyNews.com
These are some of recent health news items and as ever, I look forward to your comments at the end of each post. Enjoy!
