What are you staying alive for?

Back in 1989, Dead Poets Society captivated us. Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Suck the marrow out of life. Fast forward nearly three decades and let’s be honest.

We were gobsmacked by this statistic, but it makes perfect sense!

The adolescent brain today receives the same amount of information in ONE WEEK, that it did in ONE YEAR in 1975. (Dr Harris Eyre, Psychiatric Neuroscience Researcher, James Cook University).

If only …

One of our dear friends is in Paris as we write this. She’s never been away from her children for more than a night or two, since her eldest was born, eleven years ago. A few months ago, she saw an amazing travel deal come into her inbox, and said to her husband, on a…

You think time is running out, but it isn’t. Here’s why.
