Have you been feeling blue today. Apparently it’s Blue Monday today, the most miserable day of the year for a lot of people. I spent today feeling decidedly un-blue actually. My eldest son has a heavy cold & slept badly last night – so we had a day out of life instead of school – we bought ‘magic soup’ ingredients then we made it together – we read books, snuggled up & had plenty of lemon & honeys! It was a joy to slow down & step off the treadmill for a moment.
If Blue Monday is getting to you there are few things you could try:
- Make some magic soup – sweat onion, garlic, turmeric & ginger with some oil, a little water & some vegetarian stock cube or buillion – add diced potatoes when starting to soften add diced sweet potatoes, butternut squash & a few handfuls of kale – add more stock & water to just cover – cook until soft then whizz with blender.
- Keep everything warm! Wear a scarf around your neck & wrap another around your middle – this keeps your kidneys warm so they can work as well as they can.
- Massage your feet – relaxing & energizing. Can lighten the mind & ease tension.
And of course have a Shiatsu! Book in now so you know you have some ‘me time’ coming up. After a Shiatsu clients have said “I feel ‘put back’ together,” “I feel great now,” & “It’s great to be stretched out.”
I work in Exeter every week & in Dawlish every other Friday. I work Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays.
I’m always happy to talk Shiatsu so do get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page. If you would like to know more about Shiatsu have a look at the pages on this site or go the Shiatsu Society website
