"We live in a fast paced world, along with stresses of modern living, we sometimes allow people, situations and careers to define us, we are then unable to be our true selves. This can have a huge impact on not just how we feel, but how we look and how we age. If we are not nurturing ourselves, are of ill health, going through stressful or life changing circumstances, we can become irritable, tired, burnt out or even depressed. This can deplete our energy system, sometimes manifesting into physical ailments, this in turn making us feel and look drained, decisions, and making right life choices may become difficult. As a mother of three children I understand the importance of balancing almost everything, most importantly having 'me' time, where we can rebalance relax & rejuvenate. Once we invest in ourselves, we appreciate how it helps us feel, how we look, this can help give us a new perspective to our everyday living. We all possess our own energy field, it is our responsibilty to keep healthy and in balance, healing can come in many different forms, I believe all aspects of the 'whole' person need to be considered in order for that process to take place.
