peppermint foot soak

Here is a little foot soak recipe that I created for my Aromatherapy class. Since peppermint tea is my favourite, I was interested in creating a recipe which was focussed around peppermint essential oil. It turned out to be refreshing yet soothing, plus its super cute & cheap to make!

Everything you need you can pick up from your supermarket although, the jar i bought from a dollar store and you may need to buy your essential oil from a speciality store.

This past week has been great, I’ve been busy working on my ‘semester 2 goals’ which so far is going well. Honestly, I wasn’t perfect with getting up at 7am daily. But thats okay right? Changing takes time and consistently trying is better than giving up.

Anyways, I wasn’t perfect but getting back into fitness has already made me feel better and happier. Plus, I also managed to massaged a couple of my first “free massage clients”! The treatments went well and all the feedback has been really positive, so far.

For those who are not yet aware, over the last six months I’ve studying and practicing massage therapy. So far, I have learnt a full-body relaxation massage sequence. A few of my close friends and family members, have already benefited from the relaxation massages.

I’ve been getting some positive feedback which has given me a little confidence boost. Therefore, I’m now offering my new skills to anyone who is willing to donate their time for relaxation massage treatments. So, if your someone who needs to chill out, de-stress & relax, your should book in NOW! Simply, send me a message, why not? I promise there is not “catch” its legit FREE!

They may take 60 minutes of your time (plus an additional 15minutes for the consultation and forms). You will be required to fill out a simple health history form before treatment and a small feedback questionnaire afterwards.

Winter Wellness Wishes

I’m keeping my promised to myself. So, here is my first Monday blog post.

Today I’ve been thinking and rethinking about my ‘fresh start’ in July. This year has been alright so far but I want to improve a few things in the next half of this year. In my last blog post I went over a few goals that should help improve my slack time management skills (thats if I actually action the goals). Right now, I’m currently on holidays and its freezing outside (minus 4 degrees). I’m someone who adores winter but lets be honest smashing goals versus cuddling up in front of the fire. Which one would you rather?

Winter can make motivating yourself that much harder. But I want to find a way to infuse the things I adore doing in winter with the not so fun goals that really need to get done. So, I’ve come across something I think may help me. I’d like to introduce you to an online space that celebrates and encourages us to rest up and even chill out, without any guilt. Its called Downtime AgendaThis site is not based around how to be lazy. Instead, its all about creating the time we all need to rejuvenate, so that we’re able to perform at our best. Its such a gorgeous website that I’ve only recently discovered. So, please take the time to check it out.

“The Downtime Agenda is an online hub dedicated to the things we do when we’re not doing things. Reminding us that rest, recuperation and comfort aren’t indulgences — but necessities.” Julie Haslam, Founder of The Downtime Agenda 

Winter wellness wishes will revolve around getting things done, relaxing and treating myself well this year.

Massage Therapy Update

 

As you know I’m currently studying a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy course which I’ll complete in July 2018. Right now, I’m currently finishing up my last week of semester one. I’m happy to inform you that I’m up to date with all my assignments. So, I have a little time today to reflect over this semester and work out how I can prepare for next semester.

During semester 1, I did the following

  • I turn up to class on time (or a little late), but never early.
  • I left my assignments to the last minute and handed them in late.
  • I stayed up late working on assignments or procrastinating.
  • I didn’t practice or organise enough people to practice on this semester.
  • I didn’t have a clear morning and night time routine.
  • I don’t consistently prepare and bring my lunch to school/work.
  • I don’t have an exercise routine, or meal plan, or cleaning schedule.
  • I don’t consistently fill out my dairy/journal.
  • Oh and my blog, well I rarely upload any blog posts.

Clearly, I need to work on my time management and organisation. At this point in time I simply go with the flow, then freak out when there’s a deadline. I’m sick of just surviving, I want to be thriving. Ultimately, I want to be active, happy and healthy next semester and beyond.

So, starting next week I’ll be enjoying a two week break from school. These holidays, I’ll be organising time with friends and family. Plus I’ll be working out and actioning my daily routines (morning, nightly, exercise routines). I’ll also be scheduling in people to practice my massage skills on.

Then when, semester 2, term 3, begins, I’ll focusing on the following:

  • Arriving to class at least 10 minutes early
  • Bringing in a homemade lunch to school/work daily
  • Plan out my weeks meal plan and prep meals every Sunday & Wednesday
  • Plan out my schedule each and every morning
  • Journal every night.
  • I’ll practise massage either on my own or with a client daily.
  • I’ll be blogging this process weekly, I’ll post every Monday.

I have some exciting dreams that I want to accomplish in the future. So, this year, I’ll be working on getting into shape, eating healthy plant-based meals and become a pro at managing all of my daily activities. These things will help me achieve my goals and are also vital for maintaining my sanity.

So stay tuned for more frequent content.

Embody Massage Clinic Vision

 

Hey, so above is a little logo and vision board for a future dream massage/mini shop clinic. Since, I have started studying my creative spark has reappeared, which is super fun and exciting. I do still consider myself a creative, simply because I still adore beautiful things. And vision-boards are a great way to infuse creativity, dreams and a little self help knowledge I’ve collected over the years. I did go through a phase of being fascinated with all the “self help” books, bloggers, you tubers, for example; Marie Forleo, covers all three of these. Anyways, now that I have started a Diploma of Remedial massage, I have had a bit of fun coming up with a little logo for my future business. My future massage clinic will be called ‘Embody Massage Clinic’. Obviously, I’d offer indulgent relaxation massages and other treatments like facials. But in addition, to the clinic treatments, I’d love to incorporate beautiful, natural and hand made or crafted home wears and beauty products. Oh, and a dash of art, plus maybe be a few… or a lot of plant based and vegan cook books. Yes, I am having fun dreaming. Oh, I must say thank you to Nesha for the above vision board design template.

In the future, I’d love to recreate this vision board using my own clinic’s pictures. To see the ‘before’ vision board  transform into the ‘after’ reality photo board  would be something.
