Quite a few people make resolutions at this time of year; to get fitter, give up something, start something new….. all very good and wonderful ideas but I would like to ask you something more specific. I bet you’re a carer of some sorts, a Mum, a teacher, a Dr maybe, I bet you have someone you have to look after, care for and think about daily…. So…. who looks after you?

We all know deep down that if we look after ourselves we can take better care of others, if we feel nurtured and nourished we can find the time and energy to nourish others. However, there can be feelings of guilt or maybe selfishness around doing something for yourself.  Studies show that simply taking care of yourself will lead to a more fulfilling life.

So, what can you do to take of yourself….?



Eat well, get good restful sleep, drink plenty of water, exercise, laugh, have hobbies or maybe have an aromatherapy massage!

Well Autumn is very much here, and amongst the grey over cast days we have been having the odd,  sunny, bright blue sky, cold and bracing days; my favourite. The light is beautiful, the trees are golden and the thought of digging out hats, gloves and wearing a big warm jumper fills me with rather a good feeling!
