The penultimate newsletter for 2011 is now out. Ironically the introduction was written a week or two ago, before the Myer windows and arcade bunting proclaimed it was Christmas. Whether you love or loathe this time of year I encourage you to stay in the moment and enjoy November for what it is, rather than a warm up to the next big event on the calendar.
A few weeks ago, in mid-October, I noticed the local supermarket had already begun selling Christmas paraphernalia. It seems increasingly we’re not given enough time to savour the spaces between big calendar dates. My wish for this November is that we can appreciate the month for what it is, just 30 spring (or autumn) days. It’s an excellent time to have a picnic, go for a bike ride or weed the garden.
Hitting the headlines recently is the claim that multivitamins are at best a waste of money or at worst could shorten your life. But is that what research behind the hype really concluded? The lead article examines the latest furore about vitamins. Take a look and make up your own mind.
I’m delighted to share Jane’s wonderful almond pancake recipe. As well as tasting great, they’re also gluten and dairy-free. As usual there’s a taste of some interesting links I’ve shared over the month on the City Natural Therapies Facebook page. And finally some wisdom from Dr Seuss.
I hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter and you find the time to enjoy a calm November.
In good health,
