Anxiety

25 YEARS IN HEALTHCARE

& Complementary Therapies Help for Anxiety Recently I’ve been seeing more and more clients suffering with anxiety in my complementary therapy practice. Anxiety is unpleasant feeling, typically associated with uneasiness, fear, or worry. We feel threatened by something that we can’t control or avoid. When my sister, Heather was diagnosed with cancer I started to hear my heartbeat pounding; something I’d never experienced before. Other symptoms can be shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, vomiting and feelings of despair and danger. Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress as it sharpens us up to deal with difficult situations. However, it can become excessive and start ruling our lives and then we may need professional help. Around 10% of us will suffer from anxiety attacks at some point our lives. So if I’m describing you here, don’t struggle on alone. There’s a lot you can do a lot to help!

Endorphins are a nature’s way of helping with anxiety.

Physical touch, laughter, sexual activity and exercise all cause the body to release a flood of endorphins which lift our mood, helping us restore calm and get a better perspective during episodes of stress and anxiety. So all ways to help our endorphin levels consistently will help. I found a time with friends or watching a funny film, having a really good giggle seemed to help shake the anxiety out of my body, leaving me rejuvenated and refreshed.

A yoga and meditation help calm the mind and body too.

I find Bowen Technique, Massage and Reflexology

bring comfort and feelings of peace with a soothing effect on the body and mind. The breathing slows, heart rate lowers and disrupted digestion usually improves too. Anxious clients often need an opportunity to talk or cry too, offloading their worries in a safe place with someone who will listen quietly and be a confidential sounding board. Sometimes we can only talk to our friends and loved ones so much and a professional ear is welcome. Talking therapies may be prescribed your doctor. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, hypnotherapy or counselling to help overcome disruptive worries.

Aromatherapy can also be helpful for calming and

comforting, especially neroli, rose, frankincense, and lavender. The oil can be sniffed during stressful times and a drop on your pillow can help with restful sleep too. Flower Essences such as Rescue Remedy or Emergency Essence are a wonderful first aid to help calm nerves. Anxiety can be a very serious condition so don’t suffer in silence. Do seek medical help if it’s ruling your life.

If you’d like to know if Bowen could help you, do give me a ring now on 01702 558623.

Sunshine at Last by Sharon Longshaw This is an excellent month to pick out a few new perennials, and plant them in the garden or once the soil has warmed, you can sow seeds for perennials directly into the garden. Divide spring flowering perennials like, Primroses, Arabis, and Aubrietia. Start to pinch your Chrysanthemums to encourage them to be bushier and have more blossoms, then pinch them again, every 6 inches or so, as they grow. Check your Roses for mildew, aphid, black-spot or other disease problems or insect infestations, if they appear take steps to control them right away. Your roses will need to be fertilized each month through the summer. Make sure your climbing roses are securely tied into position. Prune them after blooming. Deadhead your annuals to encourage continued flowering and remove dead foliage from your spring flowering bulbs, but only after it has died back naturally. Once the foliage of Daffodils has died back, you may divide and move the bulbs to a new spot. Daffodil clusters should be divided up every 3 years to ensure good blooming. Stake tall flowers to keep them from blowing over in the wind, add a stake to each planting hole as you’re transplanting, then tie the stem loosely to the stake as

the plant grows. Gladiola corms can still be planted for successive blooms. Begonias can now be safely planted outdoors. As the weather dries out, your container grown plants may need daily watering, especially if the pots are exposed to the drying sunlight. Continue to watch for insect or disease damage throughout the garden and take the necessary steps to control the problem, not forgetting to change the water in your bird bath regularly, standing water may become a breeding ground for mosquito larvae. Keep the weeds pulled, before they have a chance to flower and go to seed again, otherwise, you will be fighting newly germinated weed seed for the next several years. **At exactly 12:00 Noon, on June 15th, set your sundial for 12:00 to get the most accurate time reading throughout the summer. ** Be alert to slug and snail damage... Seek and destroy ALL slugs! Provided by Flower Power Garden Services www.southendgardener.co.uk 01702 305554

More than half of car crime is opportunistic. It takes less than a minute for a thief less than a minute to break into a vehicle and steal something. But by taking a few simple steps drivers can outsmart thieves and reduce the chances of your car being targeted. It may sound obvious but unlocked doors and open windows are invitations to thieves so make sure your vehicle is secure even if you are only popping into a shop, paying for petrol or buying car park ticket. Don’t forget to lock the boot and sun roof too. Thefts from vehicles greatly outnumber thefts of vehicles so never leave your property on display on the dashboard or front or back seats. Removing valuables like radios, satellite navigation kit, mobile phones and laptops helps remove temptation. Don’t even leave loose coins in the vehicle; many a driver has returned to his car to find a window smashed by a thief simply to get to the spare change. Don’t forget to wipe away the marks left by the suction pad on your sat nav as they may lead thieves to believe it’s in your car somewhere. Better still, consider investing in a device that holds the sat nav in place without using sucker pads. If you are unable to remove your property from the vehicle, lock it out of sight in the boot or vehicle safe. When choosing a car stereo, opt for one that’s removable or has a removable front cover and make sure you take it with you whenever you leave the car. And mark the stereo with a unique identifying reference. Wherever possible, park in safe areas. Choose somewhere busy and well lit with good surveillance. Areas where there are few people about, several escape routes and cars hidden out of view are attractive to thieves. Try to use car parks with Park Mark status. These have been certified as meeting minimum standards in layout and design, lighting, surveillance and controlled entry and exit. Although no guarantee of safety, figures show parking in a secured car park reduces the chances of vehicle crime by 70 %. You can find out where these car parks are on the Park Mark website. Car crime is distressing and annoying, and can cause a lot of inconvenience. Could you do without your vehicle while it is being repaired or while waiting for the insurance company to pay out? But it can be prevented - it only takes a few simple precautions. Don’t give the thief an easy ride.
