A very quick and easy way to energise yourself in the morning is to spend just 2 minutes giving yourself a mini head massage. You can even do this before you get out of bed!
This will help you to wake up, feel alert, positive and ready to start your day with enthusiasm. It has the effect of boosting your circulation and getting rid of any tension in your scalp and face. This also reduces the likelihood of eye strain, headaches, neck and shoulder problems and also hair loss.
It’s also a great way to help eliminate any feelings of stress and anxiety which might be lurking around! So here’s how you do it:
- Sit (or lie if you must!) and place your left palm directly over your left top part of your head. This has the effect of steadying your head.
- With your right hand, use your finger tips to create a friction movement from the centre of your head down to your ears and down towards your forehead area. Don’t forget to work down the back of the head to your neck area as there is often a lot of tension held here.
- When you have covered all areas well in a minute, swap hands and work the left side of your head with this friction rub.
Incidentally, this is a great exercise which you can nip off and do at work to lift your energy and release any tension. It helps you to remain focused on your task.
It’s that time of the year again, where many of us feel that our batteries are running low. Our energy is often poorer and just getting out of bed in the morning to start our day can feel like a challenge. The likelihood is that it’s dark in the morning when you leave your home and dark again on your return from work. So how does this make you feel? Does it have an impact on your energy, mood and general feeling of health and wellbeing?
There are two areas to look at here if we want to improve our health this winter. These refer to our physical and emotional health which is inter-related. So, to increase your health in one aspect will always have a positive influence on the other.
Our immune system can take a real battering at this time in the year. You can probably see images of yourself sitting on a bus or train with someone coughing and sneezing around you. Or maybe you are at your work desk with colleagues who have similar viruses and infections.
So, enough of this gloomy picture! You may be relieved to know that there are several, easy, self help steps that you can take to boost your physical and emotional health this winter and guide your through to springtime again. I have chosen some easy ones to get you started. These are actions which won’t require large amounts of time either but used regularly could really improve your health this winter.
We managed to finally sort out the paperwork involved in leasing the building and we have the keys 🙂
