This spring I went to Bali for the second time in the last few months. Last time I left with a heavy sense of unaccomplishment; I didn't quite connect to the place. So I needed to make up for it this time round. Delving into what Bali is all about - all things health & spirituality - felt like the right thing to do. Luckily, there are plenty of places on the island of Gods to do that.
Goodbye January. Perhaps the over-enthusiastic gym newbies can calm down now? Every year I observe with a wry smile - but more often frustration - as my local health club is packed to the rafters with sweating 'January gym-maniacs'. But why the frenzy at all? Going hell for leather, be it on treadmills or in spin classes etc, is never a good idea.
