How I look after myself: Part One
Part of my ethos as a healthcare practitioner is to encourage and empower people to take responsibility for their health. To this end I recommend having a personal list of treats and activities which will boost a persons energy and mood when they are flagging.
These don't have to cost money. They can be as simple as going for a walk by a river, or listening to your favourite album, but they do have to promote happiness.
It is also important that some things on your list are truly indulgent. When we allow ourselves to spend time and money on our wellbeing, it sends out a powerful message to the Universe that we are commited to thriving.
This month I decided to have a holistic facial at Balanced Beauty in Bristol.
I had already been in contact with Sasha for a few months, and I knew about her range of treatments, and her commitment to using natural products.
What I experienced was far superior to any facial treatment I had ever had.
Sasha seamlessly massaged different oils into my skin for what felt like hours, finishing by massaging my arms and legs while the mask did its work. I was so relaxed, that even though I wanted to ask her questions, I really couldn't speak. It was truly wonderful.
I can't wait to go back!
