A day of Lifting your mind, body, spirit & social well-being.
Never miss a local story.
BEING A BETTER PERSON - through what we eat, how we take care of ourselves, how we treat ourselves and how we treat others. Many of us find some, most or all of these topics difficult to follow in our daily lives. Add the pressures of family, peers, ageing, economy & surroundings, and it often becomes overwhelming.
