Do you have a personal wellness plan? This is simply a list or a notebook you turn to when you need to take care of yourself. It can include everything from your doctor and dentists name and phone number to a list of things to do when you’re feeling down.
A wellness plan isn’t just about keeping note of when to go to the doctor. It includes your personal plan to cater for your nutritional needs, exercise needs, mental health and emotional needs. In other words, how do you take care of yourself? When we feel down, overwhelmed or angry, it can be hard to remember how to look after ourselves. When we have a wellness plan written down, all we need to do when we’re feeling down, overwhelmed or angry is to remember to look at the list and do something on it! Activities on your wellness list can range from one minute to sixty minutes. The only thing is you need to enjoy them, otherwise you’ll never do them.
Examples of things to include on a wellness list is: massage, meditation, yoga, nature walk, reiki, journaling, cooking a new recipe, meet a friend for a cuppa, trying a new therapy, listening/dancing to music, smell a favourite essential oil, or take a nap. These are simply examples. What is on your wellness plan?

Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
