Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year when a lot of people begin a new year’s resolution. Do you have one this year?

Some typical resolutions may include losing weight, eating healthier, getting fit, etc. I’m just writing a little reminder about looking after your body. If you are undergoing a new fitness routine then you may find yourself a little sore and achy over the coming weeks. Massage is great for reducing the stiffness and soreness that can come along after exercising.

Massage can also have emotional benefits. A few of us will unfortunately fail to keep up with our resolutions, this can cause feelings of stress, perhaps disappointment or feeling like you’ve ‘failed again’. Instead of berating yourself please give yourself a break. Understand that changing habits is hard work. Give yourself a treat by taking time out to look after your body, small rewards along the way, such as a massage, may help to keep your will power, motivation and determination levels a bit higher. It may even give you that mental, and physical, boost that you need to keep going a bit longer.

Plus massage can bring you a little joy in the dark, cold January days – beat those SAD blues!
