We look forward to collaborating with you in 2018. 




Eclectic Readings for the holiday season

I don’t know about you but when I manage to sit down and read for pleasure, which I usually only manage to do in January, I have a long list of wants: I want to be intellectually stimulated, emotionally challenged and also taken up and away by a good story. I also like to learn about new and interesting people and immerse myself in the lives of others through reading. So, in this spirit I offer you my eclectic readings for the holiday season.
  1. Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy by Meshel Laurie
  2. The Wife Drought by Annabel Crabb
  3. Wonder by R. J. Palacio
  4. Depends What you mean by Extremist by John Saffran
  5. The Book of Joy by His Holiness The Dalia Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu

3 reasons taking a break is good for you

Giving yourself some time off from your work means you are practising self-care, leading you to greater happiness, health and prosperity in the workplace and beyond. Here are 3 more benefits of taking a break:

1. Improves your health and reduces stress
Taking a holiday is good for your health and helps give you perspective. 

 2. Having some family time
Having a break gives you some important time to bond and relax as a family. 

 3. Improve Concentration
Taking a holiday improves your effectiveness and concentration throughout the rest of the year.
