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?

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.

How Do You Keep Calm At Christmas?

Christmas is a time of fun and festive cheer!  There’s decorations to put up, gifts to wrap and Christmas day to prepare for.  Do you glide your through this Christmas season effortlessly, or do you come out the other end feeling more frazzled than the turkey on a bad day…?!

Here are some tips to help you keep your cool.

  1. Enjoy the preparation.

There’s plenty you can do to enjoy the preparations towards Christmas.
If you shop on the high street, make sure you take some time for a coffee or some lunch during that day.   
Make putting up the tree a family occasion, or if you live alone, invite a friend over and have a sherry whilst hanging up your tinsel and baubles!
Spend an evening looking through your cook books, which recipes are your favourite and easy to make for Christmas dinner?

2.  Ask for help!

If you have too much to do, then ask for help!  Ask a friend or family member to help take on some tasks to prepare for Christmas festivities.  Perhaps they would like to join in and feel part of the preparation.

3.  Do something for someone else.

Do you have a neighbour who lives alone?  Or perhaps you have a friend who has had a difficult year?
Doing something for another person can often give you that “feel good factor” .  It may mean joining them for a cuppa for an hour.   Taking your friend out for a change of scenery could do you both the world of good.  You could visit a local Christmas market or book to see your local choir sing Christmas carols.

4.  Schedule in some ME time!

You’ve done it!  You’ve got through Christmas!  Now what about you?  Have you scheduled any time out for you?
Some Calm Therapy could be the perfect way to treat yourself after the Christmas rush.
