Tips on how to deal with trauma and drama of the holiday season

The next holiday is just around the corner so if the last did not go too well, please read my tips below and listen to my podcast on how homeopathy can support you mentally and emotionally but also help relieve the physical impact stressors might have on your health. For example; headache/migraines, digestive upsets, skin flare ups, sleeping issues etc.

 Christmas equals family, love, peace, happiness, joy, prosperity, sense of security. Or, does it??
 Unfortunately for many the holiday season is not as merry as it should be. People are "thrown together" often for days and are supposed to be happy and loving. In reality these exact same people have been avoiding each other all year. Truth is that many clients experience this "intense family time" as disappointing, stressful and even traumatic. Old hurts, trauma and grief are re triggered and health problems re surface which had seemed to be under control. Relived trauma makes us feel helpless and stuck.

Here are some suggestions how to maneuver your way through these challenges:
  • Create new traditions for yourself so you in future you have new memories and assosiations with Christmas
  • Acknowledge your past experience but then make a conscious decision to be present in the NOW and look forward to the future
  • For when negative emotions are triggered (e.g. being around certain people and their behaviour, comments, actions) have a go to thought, or action which will bring you back to the now. For example: Remove yourself, play a certain song (have it saved and ready to play), repeat an affirmation over and over again in your mind, visualize letting go, forgiving, loving yourself or practice mindfulness or breathing techniques which you can use when needed
Then also remember that a homeopathic follow up might be very helpful to aid you back to a state of well being and help you overcome the pent up anger and indignation, grief of experiencing you first Christmas without a special person, hurt, guilt, pain rejection, disappointment from family. Don't underestimate how a mental and emotional experience can be the driver of physical symptoms such as: sleeping issues, migraines, digestive upsets, skin flare ups, joint and back pain to name a few of the common problems.

Be kind and loving and respectful towards yourself and others. Life is too short to survive through it. You deserve to live it!

How to make your New Year's Resolutions work

It that time of year again when we are more inclined to “change our ways”, eat healthier, lose weight, exercise daily, drink less alcohol, quit the habit, save more money,  ….. The list is endless.
I also find Spring, New Years, similar to birthdays, a time of reflection as well as excitement for what lies ahead. So this year I have thought about why we so often fail to achieve our goals.

 I specifically named my business THRIVE homeopathy because I want to support my clients so that they can reach their goals and thrive mentally, emotionally and physically.  Common reasons are past traumas, stress, grief, worries and fears which hold us back from making the necessary changes and we seem stuck in a vicious circle of addictive or damaging behaviour. As a homeopath it is important to listen to a person’s full story, understand the pattern and to find a safe and natural medicine that will give the right stimulus to kick the habit, change and heal. Just recently a client who has been a major sugar addict has no sugar cravings since taking a single dose of the prescribed homeopathic remedy.

Another main reason for failure is because we aren’t truly willing to make the required sacrifice to achieve that goal.  In that case you are setting yourself up for disappointment from the start. Why even bother as you are only going to feel worse?  If you want to be slim again but don’t give up fatty and sugary foods well then it won’t happen.  Yes, there is a sacrifice or effort behind achieving goals and that is also why we are so proud when we reach them.

I advise my clients to think about what effort  they are truly willing and able to do and then to formulate their resolution accordingly.  A complete lifestyle change is very hard but doable for some of us. Don't forget that we act upon formed habitual behaviour and it takes between 2-6 months to deeply ingrain new patterns so that they become natural and effortless.

My suggestion to you for your next resolution is to be kind to yourself and to take best care of the mind, body and soul you have been given. You can contact Heidi Beck for a homeopathic consultation to have support in achieving your goals.
