{ Advert: The Alexander Technique and looking good }

The Alexander Technique enables us to do everything
effortlessly; standing, moving, sitting at our desks,
walking up stairs.  Even thinking and decision-making are
effortless.

When we stand well our stomachs look flatter.  And when we
do things the Alexander way we look good; it's an elegant,
youthful way of moving, with sparky eyes and a frown-free
face.  The Alexander Technique switches on our "star
quality".

Too good to be true?  Contact us to arrange a free
introductory session.

Blue Monday is the name given to the most depressing day of
the year. Better Bankside is organising DIY Happiness @ Work
to help local businesses beat the Blues. According to
psychologists, a combination of broken New Year's
resolutions, financial strains and typically poor weather
conspire to make the third Monday of January a truly dismal
day. In 2013, this will be Monday 21 January. To beat the
Blues, Better Bankside is hosting DIY Happiness @ Work on
Tuesday 22 January. It's a free seminar full of practical
activities, insights and wisdom from the world of workplace.
Facilitated by Well London's DIY Happiness co-ordinator,
Sherry Clark, it aims to help individuals create more
balanced and satisfying working lives.
