Don’t we all want to live to 90 like the Queen (Global Wellness Day this coming Saturday 11th June)

It is still not late.  This day is not just for spas and wellness organisations, it is a reminder that we can all do something to contribute towards our own wellness – both physical and mental.

For me, I recently took up a new sport – Pickleball – at my local spa/gym.  A bit like Nordic walking, none of my friends have ever heard of it which is forgivable in that it is very new to this country.  Apparently very popular in America and Spain, Pickleball can be played indoors and outdoors  and is a combination of tennis and badminton, played over a mid-height net (usually as doubles) with a bat which is called a paddle.  The ball is plastic and about the size of a tennis ball but with holes like a plastic golf ball.

Anyway, you can watch a video here if you are interested.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwqIav5zGx0

BUT the BEST BIT is that since I started playing 6 weeks ago – for 1.5 hours a week, once a week, I have lost a couple of pounds!

For my part, as well as planning to keep it up and improve my serve, I have decided following a recent health check to cut back on my vices over the summer – cheese, butter and bread and go for quality rather than quantity wines…..

Is there anything you can do too?

Happy Birthday to the Queen!
