Summer is a busy time, and it’s easy to end up over committed. You feel happy and more calm when you make time for self-care.
Writing things on paper always helps me feel calm, and it helps me remember things too. This includes work tasks, self-care and happiness tasks too.
Having a small creative project on the go is something I really enjoy. Inspired by some friends who knit beautiful things, I set myself the challenge of learning to knit socks.
The best way to build resilience and immunity is through everyday self-care.
It’s practically normal to be ‘busy’, ‘stressed’, ‘overwhelmed’ or simply plain exhausted these days. There’s a lot to understand from a biological perspective, but in my view, it’s important to understand that what you do every day adds up over time.
When you reduce toxicity, improve your nutrition, destress and get a good night’s sleep, you’ll soon feel the difference.
Screens are one of the causes of stress which makes your body feel you’re in ‘fight or flight’ mode. When it’s happening all day every day, it’s really not great and tends to show up in our hormones, immunity and even our digestion and skin.
Miscarriage is still a huge taboo and women carry a huge burden of guilt and responsibility when it happens to them. My learning in this area as a woman and a mother is something I bring to my work as a homeopath. I want every woman to be able to have a successful pregnancy if she wants one. If you or someone you know is struggling with getting pregnant or staying pregnant, why not get in touch.
I’m not going anywhere this weekend but I don’t mind. A long weekend at home can feel like a holiday too. Having three whole days off is such a treat. If I’m honest, looking after myself is not always as high on the list of priorities as it should be. Taking care of my home is something I enjoy but don’t always have enough time for. This weekend they are the main things on my agenda.
Sleep, yoga and journalling. Is that it?
They sound simple but are totally worth the time commitment; not easy to find when you have work, family and a personal life to juggle.
