MAKE A DATE WITH YOURSELF

IS YOUR LIFE UP TO DATE?

Often the pace of our lives is dizzying! We are constantly on the move! Of course, we all want to be healthy and ready for retirement some day, but too often we never make time for ourselves. There is a Chinese proverb that says ‘the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now’. So make a date with yourself.
