Whether you have children or not, the summer holiday season can be a very busy time. Colleagues are off and the workload may well increase, a nice break can often cause stress before and after (packing, passports, managing work before you go and after you return etc.), a rainy day with children who just want to go out can be tiring. Sometimes, life is just busy.
We all have problems to deal with and solve, issues that impact on our valuable family time, work deadlines, financial pressures – the list can go on…..!
All these pressures can lead to some element of stress. If this is ringing true to you, then get yourself booked in for some therapy with “Pure Escape Holistic Therapies” - Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reiki, Ear Candles - or maybe you fancy a soothing facial or a "bacial" (a back treatment (called "Back to Calm" with Pure Escape). Whatever you book, it will give you that valuable time to switch off. Have a look at the therapies on offer, or devise your own. The one hour treatment of half massage and half Reiki is a popular choice!
If you can't get in for a treatment, then a little bit of TLC to the Solar Plexus area can do wonders. Place your hands over the area (above the navel, below the heart) and rest the hands there for a while. The colour yellow relates to the solar plexus chakra, so try visualising the opening of a yellow flower, or a lovely light spinning over the area. Breathe long, deep breathes and relax the mind. Wearing something yellow can help and if you like crystals (as I do), then any of the yellow coloured crystals could help (try topaz, citrine or amber). Hold the crystal over the solar plexus, or just keep one nearby to hold onto in the palm of your hand when stressful situations occur, and try to close your mind to the ill effects of stress. The mind can be a most powerful tool.
Until my next post - stay happy, and remember where I am if you need some therapeutic therapy :-)
