Hello, and welcome back from the Sports Day weekend. We trust you are healthier and more fit than ever! After that long holiday dedicated to the healthy enjoyment of our off hours, we thought this a good time to take a second look at a series we did in 2008. It's about the importance of maintaining a balance between work and the rest of life. Try to make some time for it in your busy week. It'll be good for you!
