MAY the coming year brings more happiness to you all .. MAY you have an amazing year
From men to women, from children to the elderly, bodywork provides the healthful, nurturing touch so often lacking in our sense-deprived society.
Massage & Advanced Reflexology can help to relieve muscular pain and tension, increase blood and lymphatic circulation, reduce stress and anxiety, improve energy levels, promote better sleep, and increase total body awareness.
Massage Kerry and Advanced Reflexology causes the release of bodily endorphins, neurotransmitters in the blood that are tied, chemically speaking, to morphine and other euphoric painkillers. A localized release of endorphins resulting from massage therapy may minimize pain, while the release of these biochemicals into the bloodstream may promote a general sense of well-being in the brain.
Pain can seriously affect people’s lives in many different areas. Emotional symptoms are depressed mood, a reduction in energy level or fatigue, decreased activity level and decrease in libido, along with coping styles related to excessive use of drugs and alcohol to manage the pain. What helps is for people to try to keep areas of their life in balance. In order to cope, people need to realize that pain causes emotional distress. In most situations pain sufferers can overcome the anxiety and fear that is brought about by chronic pain.
Attempt to Focus on Positive Thinking
Pain, as indicated, affects not only memory, but how people think and feel about life in general. It is understandable that the more suffering people feel the more cynical, angry and negative people become. Try to realize that you are not feeling well and then attempt to discover new ways to self sooth and comfort yourself.
Prioritise what is important in your day and then break the task down into its component parts so that it can be performed in small bites. At first this might be as simple as making a meal and it may take much of the day to complete. Let other things wait. Much of what we want to get done can be delayed. Try and achieve one thing a day which is important. During the evening recognize and celebrate each accomplished task, no matter how small. The amount you achieve will grow over the coming months and years and you may feel justifiably proud of how much you have learned and come.The body is very wise. We need to honor this wisdom because sometimes pain can be a signal that we need to change something in our diet, environment, lifestyle or our relationships. In this way, pain can be a great motivator. If we listen closely to our pain and pay attention to our body and our states of mind, our discoveries may guide us to what we need to do to reduce our pain.
Making the necessary changes in diet and lifestyle are still crucial for your health, because nothing else you do is likely to be very effective if you do not have this basic foundation in place; and at the very least, you can almost always make some very significant improvements and increase your quality of life. However, they may not be enough for a full recovery.
Obtaining and holding on to good health is very difficult in this day and age because there are so many factors that are out of our control. Our immune system, brain, endocrine system, nervous system, etc. are bombarded with toxins, electrosmog, stress, pathogens with biofilms, and much more on a daily basis. We literally have grenades coming at us from every direction. Yes, if you are eating a crap diet, not living environmentally friendly, not managing stress and getting adequate sleep or physical activity, then it may be your fault that you are not healing.
Do not keep your focus on your symptoms or how bad things are, this only perpetuates the stress response system and lowers your quality of life. Whatever you put your focus on becomes bigger and more powerful. So, if all your focus is on your symptoms, pain, complaining, etc. then it will become worse. Focus on what you do have rather than what you don’t have. If you focus on the good things in your life, then you are happier and less symptomatic.
If things are getting on your nerves or that one certain individual is driving you mad then
you may need to express these feelings from time to time, but don’t allow yourself to wallow there indefinitely. Get it off your chest now and then, and get back to focusing on the good things in your life. The neat thing is that the less you focus on the bad things, the less you will feel the need to vent.
Don’t surround yourself with other people who are completely focused on their symptoms and suffering either, as this will drag you down.
Don’t be afraid.
Fear will take you out. Fear wants to take you out. We all have fear. Mostly, we fear pain, and given that most of us are safe in our daily lives, our fear is usually of psychological pain. We fear embarrassment, disruption, and change. We fear losing love or gaining weight. We fear pimples and empty bank accounts. We fear so much. If you stop allowing fear to dictate who you can and cannot be, you become far braver day by day. Learn to accept that pain is just another experience in life, and stop allowing fear of it to rule your behavior. You will become so much more connected to your true essence in this journey.
MAYBE Accept that some things will work out on their own.
You cannot control how it’s all going to work out; you can simply accept that it will. Let go of the need to know the details. Let go and just believe. Believe that everything is going to be OK. Because it is. Everything is going to be exactly as it should be. Because it will.
Put your best foot forward, be in gratitude, release the fear and decide to make this your very best year.
Smiles. Kay McDonnell
