The human body is a strange thing. At the end of the F1 season, one has a tendency to relax and take one’s foot off the gas.

The problem with doing this is that the body says: “Whoa-ah!” and relaxes, and instantly one catches a cold and all of the sleep patterns go haywire. It happens every year as the body readjusts to living in the real world, as opposed to jumping on a plane to here or there.  

It is the worst time of the year to do deals because no-one is at their sharpest. Still, it is good to be home and beginning to think about doing healthy things.

Of course, Christmas is around the corner so slimming down is not an option until January, but it is nice to have the time to visit the local market and see friends who have not been spotted since the summer break.
