Just listen, breathe and relax for 10 minutes, science has proven the physiological benefits.
Many highly successful business people speak of the daily benefits of silencing the mind.
Just Suspend Disbelief and Judgement for a few minutes,

We are not even talking about Covid or Lockdown. We all know the drill. For the otherwise healthy ones, the fears and uncertainties cause way more harm than the virus. Stress causes all sorts of illnesses and ill at eases. We rather bravely venture forth into 2021! Full steam ahead with a new life where fake news and government shenanigans do not even touch our state of mind anymore!
Let’s be inspired by some great things to do to embrace life, grow and stay positive, focused and healthy-minded.
We researched a list of things to do for the passionate improvement of our mindset, ever-evolving brain plasticity, health and income.
Magnanimous equanimity is the new order of the day, we have a great new appreciation for so many things and are witnessing so many inspiring Random Acts Of Kindness toward ourselves and others.
As always, we celebrate some of the excellence of the innovative and resourceful endeavours of South Africans who set a positive tone for our beloved rainbow nation. We rock on!
Maybe if we love ourselves healthy we will all heal?”

Book Release: The Summer We Didn’t Die ~ Cristine Coats
Christine Coates was awarded a prize by the organisers of the Kalahari Short Story Competition in December 2020 for her short story. Her new book of poetry “The summer we didn’t die” was published in November 2020 by Modjaji Books.
Modjaji Books is proud to announce the publication of The Summer We Didn’t Die, a new collection of poems by Christine Coates.
“Christine Coates’ poetry is lyrical, tender, and full of sensually charged memories. The Summer We Didn’t Die succeeds both as odyssey and as elegy.” – Finuala Dowling
“These beautiful poems never die. They remain alive through loss, grief, drought, fire and water, from the nineteenth century to the present day, from Hermanus to Istanbul, from Klerksdorp to Cape Town. Rhythmic, always enriching, the poetry keeps the reader close as Christine Coates’ sure voice guides us through the world anew.” – Wendy Woodward
