I know I have been very quiet on here, and like all good plans my blogging ones have not materialised this year! But I’m being kind to myself and accepting I have been very busy with my reflexology and mindfulness clients, busy getting married and busy supporting my son through his GCSE exams. A busy bee indeed! I thought after my hiatus and in line with appreciating what I have done rather than focusing on what I have not, I would spend some time looking over some of my favourite previous posts from over the years . I didn’t realise I have written so much!
Ok, so the first one i have revisited is from 2016 and really would have been a great opening blog right back in 2008. In this post I explore why I chose the name Breathe for my therapy business. It is quite a personal piece which is not common for my writing. I normally keep away from sharing my own stuff. So if you’d like to read about how I came up with my business name have a little click below
The next post I have chosen is essentially the principles of mindfulness. I find mindfulness invaluable, I am far from my goals but being ok with this is just another way of expanding my mindfulness work. Non striving is so tough for me as I am, like so many others, a goal orientated box ticker!!! ( and in mean that in a non-judgmental way of course!!) Click the link below to take a look.
Another more personal post this time, looking at how I had managed some challenges using my own therapeutic skills. Sometimes as a therapist it is easy to forget to attend to your own needs or to use your skills for your own wellbeing. This blog explored a couple of challenges I had encountered and overcome with a little help from myself!
I love exploring research about how relaxation effects our bodies. We often focus on the effects of stress but it is equally important to appreciate the real biological and emotional effects of relaxation. By understanding the significant way relaxing changes the body it may be easier to find time for this vital activity.
This is such a fun blog! My work involves look at a great number of feet, so these foot facts seemed suited to the website. One of my favourite is that butterflies can taste with their feet….I dread to think what my feet could taste right now in my trainers!!
Finally I wanted to revisit all the fun charity events I have been lucky enough to run successfully with the support of my clients and friends. I have found these events so rewarding especially feeling the genuine help and backing from everyone involved. My passion for locally available defibrillators has been important since 2012 and continues today. In this blog post I was working with Hand on Heart to provide defibrillators for local schools, which we successfully achieved!
I hope you have enjoyed looking back over some of these old posts, if you want to read more then keep scrolling down and keep pressing older! After looking at the many many posts I have shared over the years it is clear that focusing on what actually is present in my life is much more rewarding than looking at the things I have not yet achieved.
