Self-care 101

As I head into my last semester of Uni, I want to make sure I look after myself, so I don’t burn out.  To do this I’ve scheduled some regular days (well half days actually) into my diary – so I can recharge the batteries.  Whether it be getting some sunshine and reading a book, a walk through the local Farmers Market, having a bubble bath or meeting friends for a coffee … the point is, it doesn’t matter what it is, as long as there is some re charging time for me.

Long periods of relentless stress play havoc with our bodies.  So often you hear people saying they are tired, stressed or chasing their tails – these are all code for burnouts of varying degrees, as people impose deadlines on themselves and trying to do too much.

It’s OK to take your foot off the accelerator and say no to things which don’t benefit you.  Go to bed earlier, leave the unfolded washing – instead sit in the sunshine, breathe the fresh air, smile and laugh.

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
