Firsts Before Fifty!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2022!

The year where we can start over and make the most of life. What do you really want to do….who do you really want to be? It’s a time for New Years Resolutions, but maybe there is another way you can look at making a fresh start to the New Year…..

I visited my dad over the Christmas break. He is retired, loves to bake and it’s something we enjoy chatting about. He offered me some of his home made Christmas cake which tasted great! It got me thinking….I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas cake but I’ve never made the time. Planning out from the early stages of soaking the ingredients to the baking and icing at the end. Then it occurred to me, I should do it this year! And this year of all years as I will be turning 50 in September….and what about all the other things I’ve always wanted to do but never got round to doing……… why don’t I start a list of my “Firsts Before Fifty!” My list is small for now but it has plenty of time to grow!

Guess what was first on my list of Firsts………..?

A January dip in the sea

…….taking a winter dip in the sea! I’ve wanted to do this for so long. For the last three years I have been taking cold showers to prepare…..but enough of preparation! It’s time to start being the way I want to be.

I joined a local group called the Pevensey Plungers. The swim was amazing, meeting new people and becoming part of a community was great. I shall certainly do it again.

Is there something you have to wanted to do but never got round to it? It doesn’t have to be anything grand or BIG, perhaps something you could make the time for? You never know what more it could bring into your life…..I’d love to know.

By the way……I will make the Christmas Cake. Its just a bit too early in the year to start now!

Any recipes or tips are most welcome.

Let’s face it…we’ve had a tough couple of years with lockdowns and big changes to lifestyle. Christmas 2021 is an opportunity to gather with loved ones and colleagues to celebrate being together again.

Stress can take it’s toll on our health and our complexion. Not only does stress disrupt our sleep, we fall into poor eating habits and we tend to rely more on stimulates like coffee which will all have an effect on our skin condition.

Buy food with less packaging.  
Buy organic meat to avoid intensively farmed produce. 
If you cook too much, prepare to store, freeze or share with a neighbour.

Trauma and Reflexology

Trauma can come about in many ways.  It can be the result of being involved in an accident, having gone through a major medical procedure, a sudden, dramatic change in your personal or working life. It can also come upon you unexpectedly.  Perhaps current circumstances in your life have triggered past painful memories bringing the feeling of trauma to the surface.  

We also have the current climate to deal with.  We’ve spent the last couple of years wrapped in uncertainty during covid times with lockdowns, job insecurity, loneliness and possible ill health for ourselves and our loved ones.

What is Trauma?

Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences.

How Can Reflexology Help?

I regularly see clients who have been affected by trauma. Whilst talking therapy is very important, I also feel it is very important to calm the body and mind.
Reflexology, helps to release tension.  During a session, I look for where you are holding your stress and tension.  I look for your response as I access it through the reflex points.

Encouraging you to enter a deep state of calm and relaxation is when your body begins to heal.  It begins to throw out all the negativity, emotionally and physically.

Skin Health for Menopausal Women

It’s a fact that menopause can have a detrimental effect to our skin health 

Oestrogen is the hormone responsible for making you feel energetic and vibrant, helping you to maintain healthy skin, hair and enable you to feel clear headed and focus.

We see a noticeable difference from our mid 40’s upwards as our oestrogen levels drop.

This decline reduces collagen and elastin production which leads to dryer skin, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, sagging skin and more! 

So what can we do to improve our skin health?

First of all you need to know the skin goodies and baddies.

To give your skin its optimum chance to glow it would help to eliminate or keep these to a minimum:  

Skin Baddies

Smoking
Alcohol
UV Rays
Dehydration
Blue light / Screen Time / Tech Neck
Stress
Lack of sleep
Excess sugar, dairy, caffeine

These skin goodies will help keep your skin hydrated and protected inside and out.

Skin Goodies

Colourful Fresh Produce
Fluid / Water / Herbal Teas
Quality Products
Sunscreen
Facial Exercise
Cleanse Regime
