Dubai, UAE, January 09, 2019:  The New Year is the perfect time to make a commitment to being kinder to ourselves. 
 
We all lead such busy lives, where we can overlook simple things that make us happy and more productive.  If self-care and being more mindful is one of your goals for the New Year, if you are looking to enhance your wellbeing and live with greater vitality, or if you have a specific area of your life that you need some support with, TheLightHouse Arabia is running their annual open day event for the Dubai community.
