pick your passion

WITH MY 38TH BIRTHDAY AROUND THE CORNER, I TOOK TIME TO REFLECT BACK AND TAKE STOCK OF WHAT I'VE LEARNT, WHERE I AM NOW, AND WHAT I WANT AND DON'T WANT. I realised that to be successful at anything you have to be passionate about it. Goals don't work unless you do, and what fun is it to work on something that simply isn't bringing you any joy?

funky feet

Q How do I get rid of athlete’s foot? I was so excited to get back to the gym in January, but my delight soon turned to disgust as I seem to have picked up athlete’s foot. I’m guessing it’s from the showers at gym. I’ve always showered with a pair of flip-flops on and dry my feet thoroughly before putting on my shoes. I guess this wasn’t enough. What can I do to rid my feet of this horrible itch and smell? And how do I prevent it from happening again? Leigh A Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a contagious fungal infection that is common among people who share communal shower areas as the fungus survives and thrives in moist, humid conditions. Socks and shoes also provide an ideal breeding ground for…
