I am one of the unlucky people who are affected by the winter. Short days, dark, heavy clouds, rain and strong winds make me feel very low. To the point of tears. This year I remembered when, a long time ago, when I was still working in the City of London and feeling very unhappy, a friend recommended a massage. She and her husband went to a lovely Swedish lady. I decided to try it and got hooked. After just one sesssion I felt more positive, more energised, slept better and woke up earlier than usual without an alarm!
This year, I decided to have a massage as soon as I’d started feeling the winter blues coming. It worked wonders. I felt rejuvenated, relaxed, in a good mood. The effect lasted for several days. The unbeatable combination of touch, rhythmic strokes and energy, is a perfect antidote to the overwhelming effects of the cold and gloomy season. If you’re like me, try a massage! I will be very happy to see you in my practice room in Newport.
I’ve also given up coffee, perhaps contrary to the belief that coffee will give you the boost you need to see you through the day. I must say that since I started the experiment about three weeks ago, I have felt much more balanced, less prone to the mood swings. Not everyone is sensitive to the caffeine but if you suffer from anxiety, why not try and give it up for a couple of weeks to see the effects?
Wish you fun preparing for Christmas.
