This is the DMC Fitness self care series of blogs. All of our blogs on the topic collected in one single resource.
Let’s talk about health and self care. Those who know me and my story know that I spent many years of my life living unhealthily. Over time I’ve discovered why self care is important.
In this blog I will be sharing the process and formula I use to keep myself healthy in body and mind. This is the system I use when coaching my clients.
As I continue my series of blogs on Health and Self Care, I thought today I would bring you the power word, OPTIMISATION. This is the action of making the best or most effective use of a situation or resource.
Here’s some top, quick and easy to implement tips to help take care of your personal mental health.
I’m a big fan of massage and the positive effects it has on the body and soul. I believe that it has contributed greatly to my health and keeps me injury free. Here I go in to 3 massage methods that I use daily / semi-regularly that you might want to try yourself.
In this blog the intention here is learning to fully unwind relax, and recharge, but ultimately practice the art of switching off and being fully present with a quiet and still mind.
