Inhale, exhale, and count to 10… that’s what I usually mumble under my breath when I find myself torn between work and a zillion other commitments. Wouldn’t it be dandy to kick back, put your feet up and tune the world out, even if only for a few minutes? While the need to relax is certainly not overrated, when you’re expecting or responsible for a tiny person, it should become an essential part of your day! Think about it… how can you expect to do your best for your baby, when you neglect your own needs?
This is why, our October issue is all about YOU! That’s right, you’ve earned it. Whether it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that—shopping, a spa weekend, a babymoon or even just a night out on the town with your girlfriends—we think it’s time to spend some quality ‘me time’ before you’re elbows-deep in baby powder and diapers. Our feel-good issue tells you exactly what you need to do to relax your body and mind, before the baby arrives. With stories that detail ways to beat those pregnancy blues, and how to feel fabulous—we have it all.
Moreover, if you’re one who enjoys reading, we’re sure you’re aware of the extension on maternity leave, or the controversial commercial surrogacy ban. In this issue, we’ve delved deeper to give you a comprehensive look at both. Apart from that, we’ve also got interesting ways in which you can help your children develop into well-rounded adults. From going against tradition and un-schooling your kids by giving them a more practical education, to music therapy as a means to cope with various issues, we have it all.
Now, all that’s left is to take some time out, sit back and enjoy the issue we’ve so lovingly put togetherfor you. We hope you make the most of it!
