We are looking at the Comfort Zone in this issue. More specifically, we examine the positive effects of getting out of your Comfort Zone – of getting up and doing something that you wouldn’t normally do. Challenging yourself, encouraging yourself and then, at the successful conclusion, giving your back a well-deserved pat and seeing your confidence grow even stronger…our writers describe how this has worked for them. Enjoy the wonderful range of stories we have and don’t forget to look at the gorgeous photos and illustrations.
Happy summer to you and your family, whether in Switzerland or abroad…and both inside and outside of your Comfort Zone!
Andrea Snashall, editor
