When was the last time you stopped and took five minutes for yourself? When was the last time you spoilt yourself? I hear you say.., ‘I don’t have the time’. You actually do, it’s a matter of reshuffling your day to fit it in. Try getting up half an hour earlier each day, it can be one of the best things you have done in a while. Make your lunch for work the night before and instead of waiting in line to buy lunch use those extra minutes to relax and enjoy the lunch that you took the time to make, savour the taste and appreciate this act of kindness towards yourself. Maybe enjoy a few minutes of fresh air (if possible), take those few extra minutes and clear your mind. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, allow your thoughts to slow down, take one thing from your day so far, something that made you smile, and focus on that.., feeling better already?
In this fast-paced world we now live in, it is so easy to forget to make time for the most important person in your life.., YOU! There are a zillion different techniques that you can use to slow down and relax but the trick is to try lots of different ways until you find the perfect relaxation technique for you. Focusing on our breathing is always the first step and may just be the only thing you need. It helps you find your ‘centre’ and slow down enough for your mind to rest, even if only briefly. Your mind, your body and maybe your family will thank you for it.
Friday’s at Just Add Passion Gallery are super special as we have Carina in-house ready to treat you to some of that well deserved pampering. Yes, that’s right, an Art Gallery where not only the Art makes you feel good. Carina is a gentle and nurturing soul, qualified for reflexology – massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body. Also meditation – a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content. Plus the ever popular full body or back massage.
Carina is always delightful to be around and will treat you to something special. And for an extra bonus Carina also does Tarot. She is not here to tell you that you will win the lottery, go on a holiday and meet the love of your life (or maybe she will). Carina uses the Tarot to tell you what’s happening to you now, to help you deal with any issues you may have, to help highlight those aspects of your life you may not be fully aware of at the moment. She can determine what influences are acting on you, what conscious and/or subconscious control you are exerting on your life, and how these various factors may manifest in the future. Carina will put particular emphasis on any blocks you are currently experiencing, help you to act more effectively in your current situation, and find simple solutions for dealing with those parts of your life you are possibly neglecting.
So what will you be doing on Friday’s? Can’t do a Friday?.. make a booking and we will endeavour to work around you.
Smile and always take care of you!
