Today I had a wonderful chat about stress management and self-care with Silvia Heinrich, owner of the Luminos Institue in Gorey, Co. Waterford. Silvia runs a sustainable health care clinic and offeres therapies and training. The therapies Silvia offeres include clinical hypnosis, bio-energy, kinesiology and Hidden Mind.
It's very clear when chatting to Silvia that she LOVES the work she does! When I asked her what she loves about her wor, Silvia loves being able to make a difference to other people. By making a difference to others, she also makes a difference to herself. She loves the clarity and understanding that comes from practicing her therapies. Silvia came out with a lovely metaphor...you can't be a good gardener without continuing to garden. Working with the therapies on an on-going basis, help Silvia to grow personally, as well as helping others. Silvia also lovees the freedom and liberty that the therapies give her.
One of the challenges Silvia has is time management, and is always looking for ways to improve it. To manage stress and pressure, Silvia enjoys gardening, gets regular therapies herself, does a self-hypnosis every nights, stays in touch with close friends, enjoys crafting, visits her ponies twice a day, and also, interestingly participates in historical re-enactments!
Silvia likes engaged stillness to help herself manage stress, it's seldom a case of complete inactivity. This engaged stillness includes self-hynosis, Tai-Chi, Qi-gong or seimply gardening or petting her ponies. She says it's seldom a case of complete inactivity. When it comes to choosing a favourite stress management strategy, Silvia chooses what suits her on the day. She goes with the flow.
When I asked Silvia what keeps her going through tough times, her reply was she is stubborn but flexible. She bides her time until she can change things around.
Silvia's top tip for our readers for minding their mental health is...do not isolate yourself.

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.
