As an Aromatherapist, I feel strongly about using natural products on my skin. But it also matters to me what I put into my body too.
As you know, I believe self care is essential both as a busy mum and an entrepreneur. And during summer feels like a good time to practice self care. It is easier to be outdoors, to eat fresh food and to exercise. This month I made time for two spa days and a massage that left me feeling relaxed, healthy and focussed. And by making time for self care I not only feel the benefit but so do those around me. I am a better mum, partner, daughter, friend and colleague.
Also over the past couple of months I have been taking my self care further by working with the fantastic and extremely knowledgable Nutritionist Monika Bock http://www.nourish-alo.com/. I have always thought of myself as a healthy eater, especially coming from the west of Scotland! However, after pregnancy I had gained a little more weight and developed and addiction to sugar that I had never had before. And I was also feeling that I was lacking in energy which in turn was increasing my desire for sugar.
I can’t recommend Monika highly enough. Our sessions were relaxed, professional and thorough. I felt completely trusting of her and felt no judgement from her. Only support and encouragement. It was really great to have time to sit down and talk about how I feel and take a closer look at what I am eating and how I would like to eat. After our initial session, I felt so hopeful and excited.
Monika followed up with a report, meal plan and recipes which made implementing the changes so easy. After one month I had lost some weight but most of all I had curbed my sugar dependency. And I definitely feel that I have more energy.
I am now motivated to eat more healthily and can’t wait for my next appointment. If it is something that is of interest for you then checkout her link.
What can you prioritise for your own self care this Summer?
