All I want for Christmas is you. Oooooh
Mariah Carey
Blink and 2017 is gone! But before the silly season begins there is some news to share.

December is one of the most hectic times of year. It’s easy to put ourselves under large amounts of stress, physical (including sleep deprivation), digestive stress with food and alcohol, emotional stress with relationships and families coming together and work related mental stress.

We are in such a fast paced society it’s often nice to have a reminder to stop and smell the roses. That means making a conscious effort of having gratitude. Gratitude for our health, gratitude for the beautiful relationships we have with friends and family. Gratitude for the opportunities (often disguised as obstacles) that we are given everyday.

Before we get carried away with the Christmas season, I’d like to say thank you for all your time energy and support. We’ve had a fun year, lets finish it off with positive energy!

We can’t wait to see you…

Ruben and the Team

LOST PROPERTY

Over the course of the year, we have slowly accumulated towels jumpers, jewellery and water bottles.

If you a have lost/left items here please feel free to see us at the reception counter to see if it has been collected.

All lost property not collected by the 10th December will be donated to charity.

STAYING HYDRATED

As the temperature goes up in Summer water intake MUST go up also. Optimum cardiovascular performance, metabolism and general health require require optimum water intake.

What to aim for per day…. 1 glass of water per kilogram of bodyweight. I.e. if you weigh 70kg that means you drink 10 glasses (approx. 2.5 litres) of water per day.  

Like anything in life, the more you focus on something the better it gets (and the less you focus on something the quicker it deteriorates). Bring a little thought and focus to your water intake over the next couple of months, you’ll be amazed how different you feel.
