New Year Self-Care

New Year Self-Care

It is now almost mid January, and for many of us our New Year’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside. For myself, this year, I have decided not to resolve to do anything in particular but instead to be kinder to myself, non judgemental and accepting of how I am right now.

I am attempting to incorporate the tools that I have learned over the last few years – gently – and without expectation beyond this moment, this day.

Instead of dieting I am looking at the Ayurvedic way of eating for your body type. Previously I had attended an Ayurvedic practitioner and had my body type determined. After digging out the list I am relearning which foods are good for my body and am choosing to eat what is best for me. I find there is lots to choose from and it is very enjoyable discovering new foods and recipes. This past week I have cooked myself wonderful, healthy nourishing and fulfilling meals which are correct for my body type and I can feel the benefits already. If you are interested in finding out about your Dosha or body type contact Emmett at Roscore Clinic.

Create a happy atmosphere in your body and mind

I am learning that as well as feeding your body correctly, you also need to create a happy and loving atmosphere within your mind by choosing to think positively. I have been trying out affirmations by Louise L. Hay and I listen to her CD in the car on my way to work. It is having a profound effect on how I view life.

I have also reconnected with my creative side and have taken up the guitar. Recently I have tried writing as a way to relieve stress. I am challenging my body in new ways and have taken up spin classes which are invigorating and challenging.

Hopefully this post has given you some inspiration to try just one thing this January. What calls to you? Do it willingly and without expectation and do it because it gives you joy, not because it’s the New Year. Good luck!
