Tracy tells us how reflexology can act as a powerful tool to help achieve mental and physical well-being:
Most of us know the importance of taking regular exercise to keep us healthy physically and mentally.
Finding a regime that enables us to keep our bodies active and supple is probably one of the biggest favours we can do for our bodies and will improve our health and reduce the risk of diseases including type 2 Diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long term health benefits. But most importantly, regular activity will improve the quality of your life. It’s now well documented that exercise creates a healthier state of mind, improves sleep and affects the levels of chemicals in your brain such as serotonin, endorphins and stress hormones.
But of equal importance when trying to aim for a heathy lifestyle is recovery. Recovery time is hugely important to allow the body to replenish energy stores through healthy eating and repair damaged tissues with sufficient rest.
For those who take their exercise seriously, it can be tempting to overtrain and not recognise the importance of the recovery phase. This can actually result in the opposite to what you are trying to achieve including feeling general fatigue, lack of wellbeing and an actual decrease in fitness.
Getting good quality sleep is vital to how effectively your body replenishes and repairs itself not just from physical activity but also the general mental stress that many of us experience every day.
Unfortunately these very everyday stresses can prevent us from achieving the quality of sleep and relaxation that our bodies need to do their stuff!
How often have you woken up after a poor nights sleep and felt exhausted? This is your body’s way of telling you that it has not fully recovered and repaired.
Deep relaxation allows you to ease off the pressure and have a break but its more than just lounging on the couch with a glass of wine. What you are looking for is a state of deep relaxation where tension is released from the body on a physical level and your mind completely switches off.
Regular relaxation on this deep level is every bit as important as proper diet, sleep and exercise, and is vital for feeling your best, physically and emotionally.
Reflexology is a powerful tool to help with many physical and mental issues but at its core is the help that it can give to putting your body into a deep state of relaxation to help get it back in balance.
