Hopefully this is more than a New Year blah blah do some exercise blog (though of course I endorse that) but actually more about this being the year that I have already made some big decisions and hope it will be the best year for me so far.
Followers of the blog may have realised that I was not very well for some of last year, with weird hormonal overloads possibly caused by a lack of balance in work/life/family etc. BUT things are on the way up.
Now these health improvements haven't come without some work (diet, rest, supplements and some (but not over-doing it) exercise), as well as taking some time to focus on what I want and need in life and health.
Having taken time to work on myself a bit I have finally made the decision to work in massage full time, ditching the pscyhology job (yesterday!!) and taking the plunge to being fully self-employed.
This was not an impulsive decision but still feels pretty scary but despite this there are some really good aspects to this. Working at UTC Oxfordshire Sport can now increase to 3 evenings and a Saturday morning a week - which is good as the demand is high, especially with all the new gym-goers up there in 2017 so far.
I am working in Reading at Ayurveda Retreat doing sports and Ayurvedic Massage on Wednesdays (some great treatments available here and it keeps my holistic and pampering practice going) AND a new venue starting next week, sports massage at the The Body Sculpture Studio in the beautiful Aynho Park (if you're anywhere near come this is worth checking out).
Other plans for 2017 are completing my personal training qualification (if you see me please nag me, this needs doing, especially so I can help out some of my clients with stretch and strengthen classes!) and completing my Thai Yoga Massage certificate. I am looking out for 'dummies' for Thai Massage so if you're interested get your name down.
Exciting times ahead and also a bit of time to work on my own fitness and hang out with my family.
Have you thought about how you can stay healthy this year? Whatever your plans are massage can help in so many ways, these are just a few:
