Welcome to our first edition of 2018. I would like to you wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year. I hope you all had a very jolly time over Christmas, but now it is time to slow down and recover from the excesses of the season behind us, and set new goals to achieve in 2018.
Which brings me to that all important New Year tradition; resolutions. I make no apologies for encouraging you to turn over a new leaf and look after your mind, body and soul during January (and hopefully well into the new year) although as you can read on page 6 statistics are against us, but that just makes me even more determined to prove them wrong.
If you are not already heading to
the gym every day we really think you should, and the Jubilee Hall Gym are offering a 7 day free trial to encourage you to do just that on page 8. We also look at the benefits of physiotherapy on page 10 and last, but not least, Hypnotherapist Peter Gilmour from Breathe debunks the myths that surround hypnotherapy and offers you a whopping 50% discount during January when you mention this magazine. Good luck to one and all sticking to your New Year resolutions and healthier lifestyles.
As February arrives we look forward to the Chinese Year of the Dog on 16 February. The Chinese zodiac predicts that those born in ‘dog’ years are loyal, trustworthy and hard-working, they also hate injustice and sometimes are a little head-strong. To celebrate the Year of the Dog do visit China Town to enjoy all the New Year festivities.
