- Does challenge make you happy?by Annie Litchfield on Friday 28th August, 2020
I've always found it fascinating how some people can tap into their physical and mental reserves that others can only dream of.

This could mean therefore that we all have a bit more quadrant 2 time to plan and prepare. Awesome! Or, it could mean we all get too distracted and end up watching Holly and Phil on This Morning! Let’s hope it’s the former.
