Rest

2019 Festive Calendar

Feeling the festive season could mean a little more?

Please find below our Festive calendar for December 2019.  It's packed with ideas to make the festive season special..

Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?

Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?

I don’t know about everyone else, but I have had some difficulty with sleep in the last week.  Sleep is a topic we’ve often mentioned – why – because it is so important.  A lack of sleep negatively affects your wellbeing, and with a less than ideal mental and physical state, it starts to negatively impact other areas in our lives - like forgetting things, doing things slower than normal, etc.  

So, during winter, we suggest that you maintain good digestive health, maintain exercise and keep up good sleep habits so that you wake well rested and energized for the day.

Planning - the 90 Day plan

Do you plan to achieve big things?  Weight loss, learning a new skill, running a certain distance?

Often we make grand plans to achieve something in a year or longer and if we don't achieve that goal we can be discouraged.

Sometimes just looking at a year long goal can be disheartening.  Can I really walk 10KM when I haven't walked more that a short walk before?

One of our mentors recently suggest having a 12 week (or 90 day) plan.  A 90 day plan is a good start with managing your time and tasks in achieving your goals.

5 Things You Must Know for Winter...

Winter is on its way.  Autumn may have had a bit of a false start but the Winter chill is now upon us…

Here are 5 key tips for Winter
 
1.    Understand that you may have lower energy.  We just don’t have as much energy in Winter as we do in Summer.  Some clients feel more energized as they don’t have to battle the Summer heat but at the heart of it you have less energy.

2.    Cut out the cold foods.  Chinese Medicine never favours cold foods.

Rest... Essential or nice to have

Rest is often seen as an 'additional extra' in our modern world.  But is it?

Many essential body and mental healing processes only occur during rest..

But isn't sleeping enough?  Sleeping is important but sleeping isn't rest and rest isn't sleeping..

Examples of activities you might find restful:

  • Reading a book for entertainment
  • Surfing
  • Fishing
  • Gardening
  • Walking (with our without your dog)
  • Writing
  • Watching a sunrise or sunset

Resting activities are proving to have similar benefits to meditation for our health.
