To the September issue of Ballincollig Health & Wellbeing. We hope you had a wonderful summer and are feeling good heading into the autumn.
We have focused our feature this month on healthy ageing; our team offer wonderful ideas and strategies for staying well, physically, mentally and emotionally. Age really is only a number; how we see ourselves has a huge amount to do with how much we care capable of. For me, in my line of work, I believe everything starts in our heads; so if you believe yourself to be old, seeing obstacles and challenges everywhere, that is what you will get. But if you are not held back by self limiting, sabotaging thoughts and beliefs, then you will find yourself doing more, because you will see options and opportunities. It won’t be about what you can’t do, but about what you want to do and would love to do.
What I believe is also vital, in any stage of life, is connection. Human beings meeting and talking and spending time together; whether it be with family or friends or through hobbies, social organisations or voluntary work; feeling connected to others is important in order to avoid feeling isolated or lonely and for a positive self esteem.
Thanks to Mathilda Carmody, our homeopath here on the team, who is in her final year of training now. Read all about her service and what she can do for you on page 3. While Mathilda may be a student, you will be in great hands. She is professional and passionate and has her own very inspiring story about how homeopathy has changed her life.
As always, we hope you enjoy our magazine and gain something positive from it.Download Magazine Edition
