A summary of Don Tolman’s 7 Principles of Health for our Community Immunity theme and why they work – Fresh Air, Fresh Water, Sunshine, Exercise, Whole Foods, Good Relationships, Passion. I particularly like the bit about dark chocolate……..

And of course, thoughts on happiness would not be complete without the wise words of gratitude from my favourite poet, John O’Donohue.

I give thanks for arriving

Safely in a new dawn,

For the gifts of eyes

To see the world,

The gift of mind

To feel at home

In my life.

The waves of possibility

Breaking on the shore of dawn,

The harvest of the past

That awaits my hunger,

And all the furtherings

This new day will bring.
