anuary is the time for endless New Year’s resolutions and pacts with oneself to improve this or change that. Businesses in the health and wellness industry experience a spike in sales as people attempt to change themselves “for the better.” Diets are a big portion of those sales, and we think that’s a shame.
In this post, we’re going to talk about why we feel the last you need is a diet.
Changing your menu… often temporarily
More often than not a diet is a change in your menu and if you’ve ever attempted to change your eating habits you know it can be downright hard. If you’re not prepared or totally ready for the change, the upkeep of a diet can be too much and eventually you’ll fall off the wagon.
Not all diets are created equal
In fact, some diets are dangerous. Trends in the media would leave you to believe that what they are promoting is healthy and good for you, but if you read the fine (often barely seen) fine print in these ads you’ll find a disclaimer.
Diets are usually about restrictions and “can’ts”
Your mindset when it comes to food can make or break a new habit. If you’re looking at all the things you can’t eat, it carries a negative feel. Restriction eventually turns to resentment and you’re back at square one. Often a lot poorer.
Diets often don’t encompass your whole body
As stated earlier, diets primarily focuses on food. Food is vital for health and wellness, but you’re made up of so much more. What you should be focusing on is what makes you feel good. What foods make you feel foggy? Which ones give you energy? What activities do you enjoy the most? Self care goes beyond food. Buying clothes that fit your body, reading a good book and hanging out socially are all things you can do in addition to changing your eating habits. Even getting a massage or Indian Head Massage is a good way to promote health and well being.
It’s tempting to fall into health traps around the new year. Consider the things that benefits your whole being and makes you happy – and go after that!
I am different then most practitioners in the city of London, I have been trained. I trained in 2012 with the Canadian School of Head Massage. I then spent the next two years practicing on friends and family. The Canadian School of Head Massage does offer certification, I opted not to certify and I do not massage exactly as I was trained. I took the best of the training (in my opinion) and made my massages my own. I do not do chopping, raindrops and hair pulling on your head type of moves. I believe that my experience qualifies me as a superior Indian Head Massage Therapist.
I am also a graduate of Inner Insights School with certification in Relaxation Massage. I regularly take webinars and classes to keep up on new techniques and education that I can pass on to you to make you feel better.
If one of us feels we’re not a good fit, I have other professionally trained practitioners I can recommend to you.
