 Hello Beautiful People!

Some Good News ~ South Africa February and March 2018

Apart from the fact that a smile acts as an immediate and free face lift, it also triggers your brain to secrete feelgood hormones which immediately elevate your well-being and health state! It is a physiological fact! So! Lets smile ourselves happier and healthier. Please flash your screen a big smile and a deep, slow relaxing breath or two, and read on.

Another thing that makes us feel good is to give – here are some suggestions of worthy causes. Please pick a Random Act of Kindness.
