I have found the pace of January a little crazy. Yesterday I found the antidote... Making a den. The sort of thing you make when you're a kid but for an adult and obviously more sofisticated, with tea and books instead of toys.
In 2017 I'll be launching a new course on the subject of PMS. It will look at how to deal with mild to moderate PMS symptoms using lifestyle changes, hormone charting, herbs, mindfulness and diet. As part of the course I'll be sending out a PMS-care-kit with a host of natural, hand made, products for creating a monthly relaxation routine. Here's why I've come to create it.
Often when we’re out having fun and partying like it’s Woodstock (gosh I would have had such a blast being there), we can tend to overextend ourselves and get sucked down the rabbit hole. Making something or setting a reminder of your intention to stay true to your own self is a great way to make sure you can have fun, but maintain boundaries you’ve set and are comfortable with, in a joyous way.
Throughout January I worked with my clients and classes on the theme of finding focus and intention to see us strongly into the New Year with a clear idea of what we wanted more (and less) of. This involved a lot of introspective work based around discovering and actioning our individual sankalpa resolutions.
If you’ve ever got a flight you’ll remember the safety announcements. The morbid reminder that something could go wrong. In the event of you needing oxygen you must remember to put your own mask on before helping your child. This is the perfect analogy for why we should always remember to look after ourselves.
