We all wish to be healthy and to live in a stress and pain free world.

Here are some questions to ask yourself on your own health and well being:

  •  Do you experience aches and pains around your neck, shoulders, lower back, head or feet?
  • Is a good nights sleep a myth of the past?
  • When was the last time you took time out for you to make sure that you were taken care of?
  • Do you meal plan in advance or grab food on the run?
  • Are you fuelling your mind and body, or are you running on empty?

In the UK we work the longest hours in Europe.2013-12-03 21.24.41

500,000 people are believed to be suffering from work related stress.

6.5 million sick days a year are taken in the UK

150,000 workers have taken at least a month off sick due to stress.

Annually this costs the British industry 3.7million.

85% of all illness is caused by stress.

 

You can help yourself to keep good health by:

Exercise

This doesn’t mean you have to become a gym bunny, simply walking 5 minutes a day and building yourself up to 30mins is a simple positive lifestyle change.

Moderate exercise boosts the bodies natural defences as you are creating new blood cells that battle against invading disease and germs.

Strengthens your heart, prevents illness and obesity, gives you energy and releases feel good hormones to name but a few benefits.

 

Healthy Eating

By eating 3 nutritious balanced meals with 2 healthy snacks you are armoured against modern day illnesses and are ensuring your metabolic rate is working to it’s optimum, so you feel great, have more energy and improve skin tone.

 

Water

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day ensures all your vital organs are working at a tip top rate. Drinking water as soon as you awake in the morning purifies the body’s internal system and cleanses the colon, which enables the body to then absorb far more nutrients from food.

Remember, when you are thirsty you are already dehydrated.

 

Massage

Massage alters the chemistry of fatigue, and speeds muscle recovery to more than 300 times faster, lowers blood pressure and is the oldest form of pain relief.

Over time popping a pill has become the speediest way to relieve a headache.

The simple yet underestimated power of touch and its healing has been lost through modern medicine.

Physician Douglas Graham researched and found that 5 minutes of massage would restore a specific muscle group as well as 2 hours of sleep would, and that 10 minutes massage had the same effect on the bodies system as a whole nights rest.

 

Sleep Well

Hippocrates the first Greek physician advocated daily massage and a scented bath.

For a good rested nights sleep, try bathing in Lavender and Frankincense essential oils added to a bath carrier, ensure the water  is not too hot, as your body won’t absorb the nutrients, you’ll just sweat. Soak for a good 20 minutes.

The lavender oil is a natural muscle relaxant and sedative, and the Frankincense is a super star oil at clearing the mind of chatter promoting mental peace. (Also a great anti-aging oil).
