The New Year is the perfect chance to check in with yourself and set some goals. I’ve had some wonderful time off over the holidays, spending the days with my family and welcoming a new grandchild into the world. I find that having some downtime with my loved ones helps me to clear my head and take stock of what’s coming up in the year ahead. 

I’m striving this year to maintain my fitness and to always be learning new things. The new theme on is Live Life Better – a series shining a spotlight on how we can all lead happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives. Virgin has always wanted to make things better for our team and customers and to improve their experiences.
