Happy New Year

I wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year and whether or not you have made any resolutions, maybe these few thoughts will make a difference to your journey through 2013.

Laugh and express your joy more freely,
Show kindness to all your fellow beings.
Tell your loved ones how much you love them...often.
Enjoy nature and all it's wonders.
Always apologize when in the wrong.
Keep your promises to everyone, but especially those made to a child.
Show gratitude for a kindness received, and indeed for all the gifts the Universe extends each and every day.

Pre-Cristmas Stress-How To Minimize it

In this busy and sometimes stressful lead up to the festive season, our workload increases with food and gifts to plan, family to organize and what may seem like a million little things which can easily build up and overwhelm us.

One of the most important things to be aware of is sufficient deep restful sleep. To achieve this may seem an impossible task, but with a little knowledge we can avoid fatigue, foggy thinking, and depleted well-being.

Firstly, avoid coffee and alcohol in the hours preceding your usual bedtime, and food less than two hours before you retire, as your body will still be trying to process it while you are trying to relax.

Secondly, always sleep in a completely darkened room, a nightlight can trigger depression and inhibits the production of Melatonin (the sleep hormone).

If sleep still evades you, try a few drops of Lavender essential oil on your pillow, it has a wonderful relaxing effect on your mind, helping to slow your busy thoughts.

These few habits will help you through to a Christmas Day of true enjoyment and filled with sustained energy and well-being.
