How do you support yourself before Christmas?

Just got back from a long walk in the Clapham Woods woodlands, and came back exhilarating feeling and 11,000 steps in my fitbit. The Sun was glorious and I enjoyed every moment of it. And, memory took me back last week trip to Malvern Hills, where we walked all the way to the highest peak of Worcestershire – Worcester Beacon.

In November, I started thinking of how to support myself more – mentally, physically, emotionally better than last year, throughout December, during Festive period and also, upcoming winter months. And, as well as, thinking of you and how I can support you too with things, ways that you find your solace, support, a sense of calm, and re-energise yourself so you can have enough energy to get you through December month.

So I booked myself to Day Spa at Woburn Spa. It was unexpectedly amazing. If you like to head to Woburn Spa, Fridays would be the best day as it is change over on accommodations and will not fell overcrowded. I have also added extra walking in a day since I returned from Malvern Hills. My indoors supports, I added massaging oils, and aromatherapy oils from Neal’s Yard, Minimalco – check this lovely, vegan handmade products made in Bedford.

Cooking warming food like Spicy curry and Dhals to keep me warm from inside out. Also added breathing techniques for first 10mins and 10mins in Savasana for each class in December ( in all 1 hour classes which I usually offer in evening. ) In morning 45mins classes, the breathing techniques and relaxation pose shortens to 5mins but, we still keep focus on it throughout this month. Check my class schedule in December. 

Plus, I created 5 VIDEOS for YOU! 5 Days 5 different poses to experience rest and breath awareness in Stillness and Silence throughout in December. Because you deserve to feel relaxed throughout the Festive Season.

Cultivate more balance, create a sense of calmness within yourself and feel more supported physically, mentally, emotionally with these 5 things or 5 ways of a support.
