Hello. I am Colin Winstanley, Pharmacist & Director of SuperLiving.
SuperLiving is the web site to help you at every stage of your lifelong journey to health, happiness and success. It includes our own online pharmacy and we ship worldwide. Please browse through the web site and see what interests you, and before you leave, make sure to follow our health, happiness and success tips through our Newsletter, Blog, Facebook or Twitter, or bookmark us so that you can find us again.
SuperLiving is on a journey of its own, so let me tell you a little more about us.
The web site began in 1998 as MyPharmacy, a joint venture between me and my employer while I was working as a retail pharmacist. It sold health books, health products and over the counter medicines. My passion was to create a web site to help customers with their health problems, just like I did in the Pharmacy.
Well, the whole thing went rather well, and I ended up taking the enormous jump of giving up my job, setting up my own pharmacy and running MyPharmacy from there.
OK I know what most people think about online Pharmacies, but we don't sell Viagra, we don't send spam and we don't deal in prescription medicines. We are a licensed and fully regulated UK Pharmacy.
Things went well with MyPharmacy until I found that someon in Germany owned the European Trade Mark for MyPharmacy, so we needed to change our name.
I had already been working on some other projects to look at the wider areas of health, because the deeper I looked into health, the more dissatisfied I became with the purely medical model. I wanted to keep the online pharmacy content as a core aspect of the business, but I wanted to add much more.
Complementary and preventative health offer a whole new dimension, so I wanted to incorporate these.
I already had a section on mental health, which is very important, but the medical model is based on how to make unhappy people a bit less unhappy, and this just wasn't enough. I also wanted to look at how anyone could increase the happiness in their life and the new science of Positive Psychology gave me the right place to look.
OK, so I had health and happiness covered, but that still left a gap.
I realised that I also needed to incorporate success.
I read and listen to everything I can on success, and this has changed my life.
So SuperLiving was born.
Helping you with your lifetime journey to health, happiness and success.
But isn't this a huge project? - Yes
Will it ever be finished, because knowledge is always increasing? - No
Can I do it all on my own? - No, I need other specialists to help.
How will I find other specialists to help? - I am always looking. Can you help?
Is the whole project worth doing? - Absolutely!
OK - OK
At the moment, SuperLiving's health section is quite well covered. The happiness and success sections are currently a bit thin on content, but are increasing month by month.
So join us on our journey. Follow us in the way that suits you best as we add more information. (Newsletter, Blog, Twitter, Facebook).
And if there is someone you know who needs a bit more health, happiness and success in their life, then please tell them about us.
Oh, and one final thought. If you would like to buy any products you find on the SuperLiving web site, then this will help to support us, so that we can keep adding more and more information. We do ship products worldwide.
Thank you for listening.
