Some people say that Christmas is about giving, but it is important to give to ourselves as much as we give to others. Christmas is not a fun and easy time for everyone; it can evoke difficult memories, family dynamics can be difficult, extra demands can be put on to parents, carers and social worker, some people have limited options of where to go at Christmas and some people have limited funds. Whatever you have going on for you during this festive period, it is important to invest time in yourself where possible to ensure you maintain your own wellbeing.
One of our Inspirational clients created a self-care advent calendar for themselves. They have allowed us to share with you. If you haven’t been following it on our Facebook page then head over there now and like us. If you haven’t had chance to practice these self-care acts on the run up to Christmas then perhaps you could try them in the New Year or even create your own self-acts you can do each day in January to help you get into a good habit. Here are a few ideas.

New Year, New You?
We believe that mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health, and often we find our mental health can have an impact on our physical health and vice versa. Every year people often set themselves New Years resolutions to lose weight, get fitter, be physically stronger. Are you someone who invests in gym memberships, personal trainers and diet plans? Have you ever thought of making a New Years resolution to improve your happiness, wellbeing and quality of life? Have you ever thought of investing in your mental and emotional health or personal development, rather than just your physical health? Being happy and confident in our bodies is of course important but you don’t necessarily have to change your physical appearance to achieve this contentment.
This year why don’t you invest in your mental health and create a New Years resolution to improve your own wellbeing and quality of life.
