The great thing about Autumn is the weather is fantastic for getting outside in nature! To keep things simple and less stressful, our purpose is not to overload our clients with too many lifestyle changes at once. For this reason, we like to to highlight a just a few key elements to achieving optimal balance long term.
In Autumn, as the seasons change, this balance is all about getting as much Nature in the form of sunshine and fresh air while (in Melbourne especially) it’s mild and more attainable.
The second Autumn self care essential is keeping yourNutrition high by simplifying things in a way that takes the stress out of life. There is a lot to know about nutrition however, if you understand the essential elements beinggood fat, fibre, protein and quality, you will be more easily able to manage a sustainable level of overall health.
The third element we share this year is literally “Stress Management”. Yes, simple we know…but highly underrated! It’s one of our biggest killers as most know. So taking a few simple steps to reduce stress by cutting back on screen time, taking some silent time out alone frequently and cutting out mental pollution, especially in the evenings around sleep time, are what we feel to be small but powerful changes that make the world of difference to maintaining balance through the year.
Lastly but not least, the fourth pillar of Autumn health isMaintenance & Prevention.
As a Myotherapy & Remedial Massage clinic, we know too well how bad things can get when we forget to maintain and use a preventative approach when it comes to illness, pain, injury and inflammation. To carry on with the warning lights, in the form of muscular niggles and discomfort, even taking pain killers, is asking for disaster as you carry on masking pain, aggravating underlying conditions, merely treating symptoms.
