Better balanced living room in 2022

Now that 2022 is here after the crazy rollercoaster years of 2020 and 2021 living with the COVID pandemic it is to be hoped that this situation now becomes more like a endemic situation i.e. contained to a degree or at least only expected cases but relatively mild.

Back in February 2019 I started a three year wealth plan and in February 2021 I added a one year health component.

While the health component was always needed it become urgent after a testing and depressing 200+ days in lockdown and working from home during 2020 that had some terrible physical and undesirable mental health outcomes.
