As the end of 2015 is quickly approaching, we are all thinking of a resolution or a New Year’s promise to make for ourselves. Many times, we makes resolutions that are unrealistic or complicated, thus we are unable to keep them beyond the first month. Simplicity is always best. Find something simple to add to your lives. Something that is a regular part of my family’s life is bodywork.
My husband and myself have made a point to schedule regular bodywork for ourselves and our 3 year old twins. All four of us receive regular CranioSacral therapy (of course ♥), chiropractic, massage! Human touch is so powerful and necessary. In our society, we touch so little. It is so sad. Our boundaries are extraordinary and limit us from such a deep rooted need…human touch! Touch will create a hormone surge of oxytocin and dopamine, which decreases stress and increases human connectedness. If you know me personally or professionally, you know I touch. I will always shake your hand, give a gentle touch on your shoulder or a great big hug. It is just who I am. So, for this New Year, do something good for yourself and give someone a hug! AND schedule a bodywork session for yourself!
May your holidays be beautiful, peaceful and HEALTHY!
