The year is officially half done. Shame that my ‘to read’ pile is not in the same category. I work full time during June, so I never get to read as much as I want – but then again, who does.

A ‘Must Read’: “My Ikaria” by Spiri Tsintziras

“My Ikaria: How the people from a small Mediterranean island inspired me to live a happier, healthier and longer life” by Spiri Tsintziras

Have you ever felt dissatisfied with your life, even though you know that you have so much to be grateful for? Feeling run down? Exhausted all the time? Worried about whether or not you are a good wife/mother/writer/person? Should you be earning more? Doing more? And when did you become so fat? Sound familiar? It sure hit a note with me. Spiri’s well-written, heartwarming, and often entertaining memoir looks at her experiences managing modern life, and her voyage of discovery to find the key to a successful and happy life. Enter the Ikarians, the people of a small island, said to be among the longest living people in the world. Do they hold the key? Or is the solution closer than you think? A wonderful and inspiring read. Available now in ebook and paperback: Amazon Listing
