How are you going with the Christmas hype and getting your mind and body in the right shape to cope?
If you’ve been working on the steps from last week, you’ll be well on your way to preparing for the season and sharpening your mental powers for Christmas wellbeing.
Today we’ll focus on the physical demands of preparing and surviving Christmas.
We’ll talk about how your body feels and the things you can do to stop the pain at the end of the day.
We tend to forget how demanding the festive season has on our body.
We’re on our feet more than usual, so our legs and backs hurt
We sleep less because we’re busy and overtired
We’re stressed by the hunt for perfect gifts
We’re exhausted from multiple laps of the supermarket as we shop for the extra holiday food
And how does your body feel?
And Yes… it hurts, and yes it’s so hard to sleep when your mind and body is so wound up…
… and yes…... that makes it worse the next day
How do we get through it?..
Today we are going to:
Develop stronger and more flexible muscles to support your body
Strengthen your back to help your posture and ease your spine
Release ALLLLLL tension from your body so you can relaaax
Get time for a good night’s sleep.
