AshtonsPen is a family friendly, travel, and social issues blog that shares positive, didactic and uplifting stories and experiences with its readers. The blog's primary objective is to promote and support the health and social well-being, of its audience. In our stressful, fast paced, internet dominated world, with so many activities competing for our time, the Latin phrase “Mens Sana In Corpore Sano” (A Sound Mind In A Healthy Body) could not be more relevant. In pursuit of our economic goals, and the fulfillment of family responsibilities, we often neglect our individual need for rest, relaxation, and reflection. Failing to take periodic time-outs can lead to a build-up of stress. Reducing stressors, in our daily lives is the key to a happy, healthy existence.
We anticipate that AshtonsPen will be a useful resource for its readers. Following this blog regularly, readers will be exposed to information rich stories about the author's unique travel, and other experiences. I do believe, we learn life lessons from from each other, by sharing our respective experiences. Periodically, we will also dabble in some social and political commentary . Please check back regularly, to see what we are up to. We promise, it will be fun. While you are here, feel free to leave a comment.
