Stress

Stress

“They” say that moving house is one of the most stressful events in life. After the last couple of days, I can confirm that the task continues to maintain a spot in a top ten list of things that I really, really don’t enjoy.

As I look for pictures to add to this post, I keep seeing smiling couples, like they’re having THE MOST FUN EVER. While wearing matching white t-shirts. Please. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.Young couple resting from moving into a new home

The actual point of this post is that sometimes we will push ourselves to the limit out of sheer necessity. But, we still have to make the time to look after ourselves, take care of ourselves, give ourselves a break.

I’m lucky to have a job that I love. Work for me is a retreat, a haven. After this week, I’m also turning to this great list of 50 Ways to Take a Break and wanted to share it with you. ENJOY your break!

I’m having a bit of a wow moment. Five years ago today, I officially became a qualified Massage Therapist and started a very new journey. Nautilus Dublin Massage

In my previous working life, I was an executive assistant and worked a lot of hours supporting high level, very busy, very stressed out people. I decided that life was too short for that degree of anxiety and stress, and I decided to make a massive change.

When I see how far I’ve come, it’s truly humbling and my “work” still makes me ridiculously happy.

Even this week, I’ve had clients comment on the changes their regular massage treatments have made to their lives, beyond what they originally came in for.

One is training for their first marathon, but noticed that overall their stress level has decreased significantly at work and at home, and they feel they are dealing with issues in a much calmer, clear-headed way.

Another client, said that partially based on their first treatment, they decided to make some positive changes to their health, the biggest one being that they quit smoking.
