Cold Water Swimming

Cold water!  The thought of immersing your body in it makes most people shudder!

But did you know that cold water bathing has regained popularity over a recent years?

Scandinavians are well known for using saunas then plunging into ice cold lakes.  They have been doing so since the early 1900’s.

Research shows the health benefits supported by research include:

Lower risk of infections by stimulating your immune system

Reduced inflammation

Reduces stress levels

Reducing depression and improving your mental health.

Improved alertness and resilience

Weight loss by increasing your metabolic rate.

Here are some tips to help you ‘dip your toe’ into cold water as part of your morning routine.

Splash face with cold water.

Find a face cloth.  Soak it with cold water and then ring it out so it is damp. Next wrap it around your throat and neck for a few seconds or more!

Take your usual warm morning shower and finish off with a quick burst of cold.  Over a period of time you may want to build up to 2 mins under the cold shower.

Living on the coast we have the perfect opportunity to connect with nature and get into the sea!

Breath Work

As we enter into our fourth week of quarantine or cocooning, I’d like to ask you how are you breathing?

Are you filling up your lungs with air regularly each day?
Can you fill your lungs up with air or are you stuck in fear and anxiety?
Can you move out of that fear and breath not only into your lungs but into your tummy and torso?

Staying Connected

Firstly,  I hope you are all safe and healthy.

What can I say…the world is a different place.  The Covid-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it. 

We are now in lockdown and are very aware about social distancing.
For me, this feels a hard concept to grasp.  It is very necessary, but we need human contact to survive and thrive.

So I have found myself in a new role of bringing people together online.

I have created a Youtube channel called Conversations with Calm Therapy.

 

I have been interviewing Complementary Therapists and Business Advisors.

This keeps us as business owners connected and present online.
It also offers you, the viewer ways to cope with sudden change, release ourselves from fear and how to move forward.  I also ask each guest to suggest any useful activities we can do whilst we are in lockdown.

So far I have interviewed:

Parenting consultant & Family Relationship Coach
Breath Work Facilitator
Business Strategist
Stress Management & Laughter Specialist
Business Mentor
Shamanic Healer & Story Teller

and there are more to come….

This is useful information service for you.  Each guest answers 3 set questions from their area of expertise.  I hope they will help if you are facing difficulties during time this time of change.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel to see latest videos to inspire you.

Stay healthy everyone.

 

 

Sarah Weller’s Conversations With Calm Therapy

Conversations with Calm Therapy is a project where I interview a series of holistic therapists and business owners during the Covid-19 pandemic.  This is to create connection amongst business owners during isolation.  It also offers the viewer of these interviews tips on how to cope with sudden change, how to manage your fear that rises with uncertainty and perhaps learn how to release that fear from your body.  I’ll also be asking each guest for any useful rituals or activities we can add to our daily routines during lockdown.

My first interview is with Sarah Weller, a qualified Parenting Consultant and Family Relationship Coach.
