Focus on SELF CARE

Focus on SELF CARE

The Focus this February here at NATPATH CLINIC will be all about SELF CARE awareness.

 

What does SELF CARE mean?

According to the dictionary Self Care is defined as:

  1. The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health
  2. The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.

I like both definitions very much and although they seem to say the same thing I find that they also differ in an interesting way. The first definition is more general and a long term action/commitment – it’s a practice in itself. The second definition is more specific and it provokes the need to urgently intervene and protect.

Where are you finding yourself at this present moment in your life?

Are you leaning more towards the gentle daily practice of Self Care or is there a need to quickly intervene and protect? What does you Self Care list / practice look like?

As a Naturopath and Health Coach, my focus on Self Care practice for my clients and myself looks like this:

I shall be addressing all these points through short videos during the month of February through my social media portals – Instagram & Facebook.

  

I have already shared my thoughts on the topic of the importance of WATER and LUNCH BREAKS.

If you wish to see them, here are the links.

We are also running a promotion on Relaxing Massage this month.

We have now introduced a gift voucher if you would like to gift a caring treatment to a loved one – Valentines day is around the corner.

 

Talking about love, SELF CARE stems from SELF LOVE so maybe for this month alone focus on showering yourself with love, even on Valentine’s Day. It will help you make a habit of it 🙂

Before I go I would like to leave with this beautiful poem by Lang Leav.

Yours in health,

October at my clinic is all about grounding and relaxation

October at my clinic is all about grounding and relaxation

This month I have put together a special bodywork package combining…

saunas, massage, fragrant herbs and oils with the intention of promoting and reminding my clients the necessity and importance of this state of being.

 

Before I go further to explain what this package entails I can imagine some of you wondering…

 

What is Grounding?

Well, grounding is the simple process of being present in your body, connected with the Earth, connected with oneself in the here and the now.

If you are finding yourself having scattered thoughts, hesitating a lot, being disorganised, being easily distracted by other people, events or surroundings, finding it difficult to take firm decisions, feeling stressed and out of source, than it is safe to say that you are definitely not grounded.

Grounding is characterised by a sense of calm and balance. It generates a sense of ease in the mind and stability in the body.

 

Here are 5 simple tips to help you re-ground and re-connect with your sense of purpose:

  1. Sit down on the ground, close your eyes and breathe; anywhere, in the garden, at home, in the office on a yoga mat or meditation class.
  2. Spend time in nature, in your garden or your local park. Breath the cold air, watch the leaves fall, touch them, feel them.
  3. Eat some of the sweetness of the Earth that comes in form of fruits and vegetables such as pumpkins, butternut squash, carrots, cabbages, pomegranates, apples, rhubarb.
  4. Drink Turmeric latte otherwise known as The Golden Milk. They are spicy, warming, anti-inflammatory.
  5. Book an appointment and take advantage of our October offer.

It combines the benefits of FIR Sauna (Far Infrared) followed by a massage using grounding essential oils.

The use of the essential oils during the massage is optional. They can also be therapeutically beneficial when burned or diffused. The best grounding essential oils are Sandalwood, Frankincense, Vetiver, Patchouli, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang and Myrrh.

Enjoy October! Stay warm, spiced up and grounded.
