Watch a Classic Film
Some films are so universal and timeless that they continue to entertain many generations of cinema goers. My old favourite is ‘Cinema Paradiso’ and I love it because it has the power to make me laugh and cry every time I watch it.
Raise Money for Charity
Either participate in an organised event or do you own thing. Have fun, meet new people and challenge yourself.
Play a New Sport
Grab a friend and play at your local courts or join a club and meet new people and get fit at the same time.
Give thanks for your friends and family and show your appreciation
Welcome the Day
Start the day with a walk in the sunshine or with a invigorating yoga session.
Strengthen your Core
Pilates is great for strengthening your core muscles. This improves your posture, takes the strain off your back and gives you a flat stomach.
When chaos and negativity surrounds you, maintain inner peace and tranquility using simple ‘bite-sized’ meditation techniques.
Treat Yourself and Others
Now and again enjoy and savour something decadent, whether it is a piece of cake or a spa treatment. Use all of your senses to absorb the moment.
Smell the Roses
Enjoy the beauty and scent of flowers.
Get yourself to a gallery or studio and spend time admiring a piece of art that you like.
Read a Good Book.
There is nothing like emersing yourself in a good story.
