Keeping Things Fun


As much as we can take statistics like these into account, the results of The Health Lottery draws are based on chance.  Remember, when it stops being fun, take a break. As that famous sitcom theme tune says, sometimes “it’s not your day, your week, your month, or even your year” and that’s ok.
