My Holistic May 

My Holistic May 

Hi everyone…

I cant believe writing this, that we are in the 6th month of the year…where is the time going?? May was as promised a busy month for the blog and the business, see below some of  my holistic highlights from the month..

 

A-z Blog Series

I started a A-Z Blog series about how Massage or Reflexology  (my treatments) can help with common aliments. So far I have released 6 of these:


A is for Arthritis

B is for Backache

C is for Constipation

D is for Diabetes

E is for Endometriosis

F is for Fatigue.

Click on each of these for the full blog and do keep an eye out for another 6 in June.

Take advice from a Tree:

Anyone who follows my Instagram stories has seen almost daily snaps of my Bonsai tree. The new addition to my work desk in May. The Bonsai symbolises harmony, peace, order of thoughts, balance and all that is good in nature. All of these one needs in a busy sales environment.



Darkness into Light Walk:

I was delighted to have completed this with my sister in Banada (Sligo) for Pieta House at the beginning of the month. Such a great cause and a beautiful experience.   I especially loved the candle lit country roads and the illuminated signs of Hope, Strength and Courage along the route. Remember its good to talk and there is always someone out there that can help.

 

Featured on other sites:

It was a busy month for The Holistic Toolkit been featured on other sites. At the beginning of the month I was choosen for “Scale it Simple’s” Friday feature for my “Why Massage is good for your Skin” blog.
Read it here.

Then at the end of the month, I was also featured on the Irish Health Hour website for with my “Top tips for getting the most out of your holistic treatment”.


Read it here.

Also in the middle of the month, I was asked to takeover the Snapchat for CrossFit Galway’s, “Rise of the West” CrossFit competition day.  Such a great fun!


 

Mayo championship:

The round up of the month couldn’t be done without mentioning my beloved Mayo. First championship match and win in the bag and many more to come I hope. This day was extra special for me as I got to share it with my nieces and nephews and watch it through their excited (Sligo) eyes!


So thats it, just some of the holistic moments from May, a busy but enjoyable month!

See ya in June x

Stay holistic

My Holistic April

My Holistic April

Cliffs of Moher walk

April kicked off with a “Road trip with Rua ” .


Rua is my friends adorable dog who came with us on a CrossFit Galway’s day out to the Cliffs of Moher. We walked the beautiful walk from Doolin to the cliffs . Such a fabulous walk. It has everything you need,  blue skies, green fields, stone walls, high cliffs, views that go on for miles and of course that day we had great company so alot of belly laughs!

Good for the mind, body and soul! I definitely recommend that walk…

Black Swan:

If you live in Galway and don’t know about this beautiful black swan that arrived (from Australia!!) to the Claddagh a few weeks back, where have you been?? My day job is only around the corner from here so I had to pop down one of the days at lunchtime to steal a photo. Shes ( I think its a she) seems quiet at home there and its nice to see the other “white” ones dont seem to mind that she is the star of the show at the moment.

Easter

Easter came and went in April and myself and himself had a little road trip out Connemara way and ended up in Kylemore Abbey. A very peaceful part of the world with his mountains, lakes, woodlands and beautiful walled gardens.

Deep a bit further though and you will find wishing trees, fairy doors and trees for climbing . I even found this hand monument that I couldn’t resist taking a photo of.


There was actually a Alice in Wonderland themed party there and that brings out the child in all of us.

Get up and go!
I was very fortunate to attend the third annual “Get up and Go” event in Sligo in April. Read all about my blog here.  I’m still talking about it to who ever will listen and am currently half way through the book that was launched on the Friday night by the organisers.


It has given me that extra push that I need to keep going with my blogs and my business  plan and reach for those goals that I’ve set out for myself.

Bank Holiday

Another busy month for The Holistic Toolkit and so I was delighted to end the month with a extra long weekend and put the feet up and spend some time just Netflix and chilling. Sometimes that’s what the mind and body needs and that my friend is ok.

So many blogs and treatments booked in for May already, I’m so excited that this may be my best one yet. Stay tuned!

Stay holistic 🙂
