Editor’s Welcome                                                                                   May 2014   

May is one step closer to summer and with it comes all the wonderful anticipation of vacations, getaways and gatherings with family and friends. May is also Mental Health Month and it is a month in which Travel & Tourism Week & Small Business Week are celebrated in Unites States. It's all linked together with Wellness Tourism Worldwide's mission of "Improving Well-Being & Economic Growth through Travel" and our vision of making wellness travel accessible, fun and rewarding for as many people as possible.

Focusing on the Good: 
There comes a time when you walk away from drama and the people who create it and instead you surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad.  Focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life and getting back up is living. (Source: chain mail)
