The past week has not been the greatest start to the New Year for me BUT, I do believe the Universe has ways and means to slow you down, give you time to reflect, then lets you take a breath and carry on... so, in true Universe style, I came down with the mother of all colds, and in between sleeping, coughing and more sleeping, my brain kept asking me all sorts of impossible questions...
Normally I am able to switch off and not listen to it, but because I'm not well, it became a "if I don't check the answer out now, I'm never going to get any rest" situation... so, my brain kept asking: Which famous people and celebrities have tried and enjoyed Reflexology? Thanks to good old ChatGPT (yes, I asked!), I am able to bring you this list... and wow, I knew about some but not all!
