Win a Ferrari driving day experience
Cheer up and carry on: January and February are the worst months for moaning but help is at hand with Benenden Healthcare Society
Friday 22 January 2010
We Brits do love a good old moan. And with a colder-than-usual winter plus a continuing recession hampering our cheerfulness it's become fertile ground for the nation's army of Grumpy Old Men and Women. Research by Benenden Healthcare Society shows what a bunch of whingers we are. Whether it's the weather or the commute there are truly millions of things we can – and do – moan about. On average we spend almost half an hour griping about stuff each and every day.
As we begin 2010 however, do we really want to continue the moaning trend? According to Benenden the key to cutting the moaning, and in turn boosting our mood and mental attitude, is largely within our grasp. By taking regular exercise, having a healthy diet and adopting a positive mental attitude, we can dramatically improve our mental and physical wellbeing.
Benenden Healthcare Society is one of the UK's oldest and most respected healthcare mutual organisations, priding itself on the relationship it has with its members and the first-class exceptional and affordable healthcare it provides for families, individuals and employers. To help you adopt a positive mental attitude for 2010 Benenden is giving you the chance to win a Ferrari driving day experience. To get your hands on this fantastic prize just answer the question below:
