I have featured this series over the last ten years on a regular basis for new readers who might have joined the blog. Our bodies are are greatest asset. It has a long road ahead of if from birth, through the teen years, work life, parenthood, middle age and then into our 70s and beyond.
At every stage of our life healthy nutrition is essential to help the body develop and remain as disease free as possible. I appreciate that many of you may have read this series before three years ago, but I hope it will be a reminder of how amazing our bodies are, and simply eating the right foods, exercising moderately and not doing anything too reckless…will go a long way to enjoying later life to the full.

The truth about your Inner Strength
Wonderful article on inner strange by Rhea Dopmeijer. Talks about things we all should know. It’s a must read!
The truth about your inner strength
When you are connected with your Heart
Listening to the whispers and nudges,
Not even doubting what to do next,
You are tapping into your inner Strength.
It is sometimes really subtle to hear
And it requires a certain tuning in
Ready to listen with a different kind of hearing.
When you are able to step aside
The essence of the inner truth will be revealed.

Or even from a fight in order to make your case
You can step aside to hear what the best solution
Can be in any kind…
