Love Your Personality & Don’t Hide it Away.

Oh dear! My alter ego, Miss Personality herself, Tasheenga, is not happy that her blog hasn’t been entered into the V by Very Blog Awards. I think she feels a little bit left out! Her blog is still a fledgeling and maybe next year she’ll get the opportunity to shine. If she behaves!

She gets very annoyed at me when I instruct her to stay calm and quieten down. Sometimes she tries to help but quite often her input can hinder a situation rather than improve it.

Occasionally I allow her to help me to write my posts on We Are Holistic, but she’s safer over on her own little blog. She can rant and rave all she wants in her own little corner of the internet. Yes, I do value her input but I can’t let her think that she can completely take over. I need to balance all the different parts of myself. Ashamedly, I have to admit, I did try to keep her a secret but by following the advice of a very wise friend, I revealed the true identity of Tasheenga.

Ashtanga Yoga will Come to Bailieborough.

I tried to learn the practice of yoga about ten years ago but I just couldn’t get into it at the time. Since then I have made several attempts to learn it from books and videos but that didn’t work out for me at all. So I had more or less decided that yoga just wasn’t my thing.

But it has been on my mind a lot recently for many reasons: lower backache, stiff joints that need looking after, poor muscle tone and also my interest in meditation.

Treating someone homeopathically with SAD means finding a remedy that matches the whole person. As a homeopathic practitioner I will identify personal symptoms, personalities, etc and match them to a remedy which will best stimulate the body’s own natural healing response.

“You can be Happy When you Have SAD”.

We’re all allowed to feel gloomy or sad every now and then, regardless of what season it is, but do you find yourself struggling on a daily basis with feelings of sadness and depression as soon as the winter months arrive? Would you rather sleep than make love, only to lie awake half the night feeling anxious about everything and anything? Do you find the long dark evenings depressing?

It is possible that you may be suffering from a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, more commonly known as SAD. Other symptoms you may experience with this condition are irritability, mood swings, difficulty getting up in the mornings and a craving for carbohydrates, such as bread and pasta. The most obvious sign that you may be suffering from SAD is that the symptoms come and go at the same time every year, more commonly during the dark winter months: December, January and February in particular.
