February is the month of love, but the most important and least practised is self-love.
“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection” Buddha
How many times have you heard that to love fully and reach your potential you must love yourself first? There is no one else quite like you. You are special and unique, how about you celebrate and appreciate your “you-ness”!
When life is busy it can feel hard to achieve your goals. But if you’ve got 2 minutes, take a deep breath, and just be.
Inhale slowly and gently.
Now exhale slowly for the count of 3.
Feels good doesn’t it.
Self-love can take many shapes, from calling a friend for a catch up, watching a movie, taking a walk outside to recharge, or having a massage. Anything you like! The key is to listen to your body and mind.
Self-love is a form of health care on a biological level. When you love and feel loved, the human brain produces “happy” hormones such as serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin that make you feel happy, secure, energised and these allow your body to heal.
The pure relaxation massage offered at Stone Osteopaths will bring you a sense of relaxation, improving your circulation and mood. Massage stimulates receptors found in muscles that connect to the brain, when they are stimulated it encourages you to release” happy hormones” allowing your body to recover, renew and feel loved.
Why not practice self-love daily, weekly and monthly to keep you feeling happy and healthy, putting you at the heart of everything you do.
