Royal Life Endorsed Swim Schools:Safe, Fun and Friendly!

It's no secret that Queensland enjoys one of the best outdoor lifestyles in the world with our great climate, fantastic beaches and backyard pools to enjoy.

However with 265 people drowning in Australian waterways during the 2005/2006 period, including 37 children between the ages of 0-4years old, we're reminded just how important it is for every child to be equipped with swim and survival skills.

Summer is nearly upon us, some children might have lost confidence in their ability over the winter. To help your little one with their swimming skills Belgravia Leisure Centres offer a comprehensive Learn to Swim Program officially endorsed by the Royal Life Saving Society. Our program offers swim & survival skills whilst also focusing on swim technique.

Our programs are conducted in a safe, fun and friendly environment with heated pools all year round, and classes spanning from Introduction to Water, for small babies, right through to adult level stroke correction. All our instructors are fully qualified Austswim certified.

There may come a time when these water skills save your little ones lives and become the best investment you ever made.

The Benefits of a Health Retreat:Getting Away to Camp Eden!

A holiday at a Health Retreat is the ultimate stress-free holiday.

Sometimes we work too hard and are so busy taking care of everyone else's needs we forget our own. We need to take time to put ourselves first, take some well deserved 'time-out', allow ourselves to be pampered and most importantly have some fun! When we do this we are healthier, happier and more productive and of course…wonderful to be around…so everyone benefits!

A stay at a Health Retreat is perfect for the overworked psyche. The seclusion from the outside world - no mobile phones; no television; no radio; no newspapers; no traffic; no noise just the freedom to slow down and stop; to listen to the sounds of nature; to reflect; to contemplate and be in the spirit with what is around you; a chance to reconnect with yourself, surrender your old perceptions and see yourself with fresh eyes - these are just some of the benefits you will feel when you discover health retreats.

There is no need to plan and organise anything as all the planning is done for you. A personal consultation will customise your programme allowing you to plan your levels of participation and relaxation during each day of your stay.

You will be encouraged to get active, increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen muscle and improve overall health - and the benefit of participating is that you will feel great.

The cuisine at a health retreat means surrender to an unhealthy diet, but the benefits of healthy eating is a nourishing feast for your body and you don't have to do the cooking!

To heighten energy flow while relaxing the mind or pamper and rejuvenate your body you can choose from a myriad of treatments that will leave you totally renewed and reinvigorated.

Health retreats will help you to introduce discipline, motivation and knowledge on how to improve your diet and fitness lifestyle and most guests who have attended a health retreat end up addicted and return time and again.

All heath retreats are not the same and may vary from stay duration, intensity, cuisine, activities and spa treatments on offer.

Camp Eden Health Resort, Australia's longest-established holistic health resort, has been described as a 'place of inspiration'. Set in a stunning natural ecologically sensitive environment of 290 acres of tropical rainforest a real sense of community and purpose pervades Camp Eden. Camp Eden's vision is to have their guests leave truly inspired to make positive and permanent changes in their lives that will lead to greater levels of happiness and health.

Fishing License

A couple of young boys were fishing at their special pond off the beaten track. All of a sudden, the Game Warden jumped out of the bushes. Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down and started running through the woods like a bat out of hell. The Game Warden was hot on his heels. After about a half mile, the young man stopped and stooped over with his hands on his thighs to catch his breath, so the Game Warden finally caught up to him. "Let's see yer fishin' license, Boy!" the Warden gasped. With that, the boy pulled out his wallet and gave the Game Warden a valid fishing license. "Well, son," said the Game Warden, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!" "Yes, sir," replied the young guy, "but my friend back there, well, he don't have one."

For a Good Cause: Why Support Adopt A Pet?

Choosing the right pet for you is fun, but takes time, planning and lots of research. You need to consider very carefully both your needs and the needs of any animal that comes into your life; for example, how much time you can spend for exercise, how much space you have and how much you can afford to pay for food, toys and possible vet bills. To make this process easier, the RSPCA has introduced Adoptapet, a national website that lets you view some of the animals waiting adoption at RSPCA shelters across Australia.
