Well, here we are at the beginning of 2022. Yippee!! At this time, we always feel as though the new year wipes the slate clean and presents us with an opportunity to substitute some of the habits that just don’t serve us anymore. We're not talking about wholesale change, just a gentle understanding of what you need and slowly bringing healthy habits and new patterns into our routines.
If the past two years have taught us anything it is that we need to take conscious care of our own bodies and minds. Take care of what goes into both and if you need a break from the craziness, take it. 2022 should be the year you ditch the fear and embrace a proactive role in your own health. Fear is a debilitating emotion. It leaves us vulnerable and reactive. Our bodies react to fear the same way we react to stress, and all body systems suffer. Our health and wellbeing need us to be PROactive. The decisions we make every day can heal or harm us, right from the time we wake up to the time we go to bed.
The wonderful thing about looking after yourself is the rewards are right there for you to see and feel. You are experiencing it all first hand as doctor and patient, and you will be paid back in increased energy, boosted mood and vitality. Just what we need in 2022.
Our aim at Enhanced Wellbeing has always been Nurturing Change with a slow and steady approach to health. Every single time you consciously take care of yourself it is a step forward - the right direction. None of us can run a marathon if we have never jogged anywhere apart from to the bus. Nobody can stop drinking alcohol when a wine in the evening is what keeps you sane. These are just not going to be achievable and it is setting these unrealistic goals that leads to the inevitable feeling of failure. So many times we aim high with the best of intentions only to end disappointed when things don’t stick. The great news is that bit by bit you can get to where you want to go and it can be at your own pace in your own time. There will be a time when you will be strong enough to hit the big health kahunas, but not when you start your journey.
Here's where we can help. Our products are designed to be 100% natural replacements for many of the things you use every single day. You can start your journey by easily embracing some of these in your life. Remove the toxins without losing the luxury. Replacing just one of your coffees each day with a herbal tea will help your hydration, and bring the powerful therapeutic herbs into your body to do their magic. Taking time to soothe your body in a warm bath or foot soak with our luxurious bath soaks will relax and restore you while moisturising your precious skin. Our aromatherapy rollers offer a beautiful perfume without any toxins, while the essential oils calm and balance your mind. Start small and build from there. Make a commitment to take care of yourself. Write it down if you need to and tell yourself in the mirror every morning. Such a powerful thing to do and even though it feels weird at the beginning it really works.
We have also put together a free eBook called The Essential Eight. This is designed to kick off your year on the right foot. The information contained in the 22 pages is simple and you will feel like you know it. However, knowing it and doing it are two very different things. Commit to adding one of these habits to your life every week and by the end of eight weeks you will be well on your way. You can register for your copy here.
2022 is going to be full of exciting new things here at Enhanced Wellbeing. We will be regularly keeping touch through our blogs and newsletters so make sure you are signed up. Keep an eye out for our beautiful new branding, new products and offers. We know the road to wellbeing. It doesn't have to be punishing and depriving. We want you to want your health back and we have the tools to get you there.
