Summer is nearly here and with it comes a change in wardrobe. We all switch from wearing heavy sweaters, boots and thick socks to short-sleeve shirts, shorts and sandals. Are your feet healthy and ready to come out of hiding?
Happy feet make a happy person and are something we often neglect. How many of us pay much attention to our feet in winter, for instance. It’s usually only when summer is nearing and – oh my goodness – the feet have to be “on show” that we suddenly reach for the pumice stone/brush/ped egg etc and try to give them a bit of an MOT.
What I’ve realised
So I give out lots of advice about how very important it is to look after yourself, both your health, stress levels, nutrition, exercise etc etc. However, in March I got sick (don’t panic, only a cold!).
I’d had a busy time, working, getting my new treatment room ready – I’d given myself a deadline (I know not why……) and obviously got a bit run down and succumbed to some nasty germs.
As some of you may know I have collaborated with Donna Henry of Mad Henry’s Tea Room at Riverside Cottage (1 mile outside Bideford) to provide a Beauty Pamper & Vintage High Tea – am sure you can guess which bit I provide!
A bit of background
I joined a Ladies Networking Group in January last year as I wanted to mix with likeminded businesswomen, meet some people, get some support and generally have someone to talk to. Yes, being a sole trader can be a lonely business sometimes
Back to Beauty & Mad Henry’s Vintage Tea Room – The Importance of Giving Back
Some of you may know that I volunteer at The Long House in Holsworthy, North Devon Hospice’s (relatively) new building. The Long House opened in September 2015 and has provided over 1,200 sessions of care since. This ranges from one-to-one counselling and complementary therapies, to family craft and nurse consultations days.
Wellbeing days are held each month where those dealing with a life-limiting illness and their carers can come along and get their hair cut, have a facial, massage, reflexology or manicure. It’s a chance to relax and be pampered.
Fantastic February – Would you like a Massage?
Wow where did January go? Some people really don’t like this time of year but I don’t mind it. The aftermath of Christmas and the nights getting a bit lighter just two weeks into January do help. To be honest it went really quickly for me as I have been very busy focusing on my marketing and trying to get super organised, hopefully, saving myself time later in the year.
So to February, and I thought this month I would cover a bit about massage. There are many different types and what do they all mean and do for you.
