Just A Few Ways To Use The Internet Differently

If you’re someone who uses the computer, or your phone regularly, then you know just how much time the internet can suck up out of our lives. It’s the place where we can meet all kinds of people, watch all kinds of videos, read all kinds of stories and articles, and ultimately, craft a whole new persona for ourselves.

Are You Neglecting These Key Areas Of Health?


When it comes to your body, are you in control? Do you feel as if you’re as healthy as you can be? Do you care about how you feel in yourself? How much energy you have? And really making the most out of your life? If this is the case, then it’s just so important for you to be healthier. And, be honest with yourself, do you feel as if you’re currently being as healthy as possible? Do you make conscious efforts to feel good and energized and healthy at all times? Would you agree that you’re in the best condition of your life, and that none of your own actions are putting your health at risk? It’s likely to be that your answer is no here - because so many of us aren’t all that sure on what we can do for our health levels.

Or maybe you’re someone that is making quite the effort to get your health under control. And you care about your body and feeling good? Are you’re really sure that you’re doing all you can, but you’d love to know if there’s more you can do? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Because we’re going to run through the key areas of health that you may be neglecting, and what you can do about it.

Kira Weston
Publication date: October 15th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance
It’s the year 2216, and ever since Lydia Humsworth was little, she’s heard stories about electricity that used to light up skylines and planes that soared through the sky like birds. There were also stories about The Shift, which plunged the world into darkness nearly two hundred years ago and gave some people magical abilities. These people came to call themselves sorcerers.
Now, in the small village of Aldea, sixteen-year-old Lydia is training to be a Fighter in hopes of one day protecting her village. Her best friend, Daniel, spends his days working long hard hours on the farm. Humans and sorcerers have always seemed to coincide peacefully, but when Leonardo Kinch–a deranged sorcerer who blames humans for the death of his family–starts a war against humans, nothing is as they believed.

When war rages across the country, Lydia and Daniel must do everything they can to stop the war and stay alive, or risk the human race falling into extinction.
