You are the Best Investment You Will MakeHave you ever heard the saying, ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’? For those of you who haven’t, it basically means that if you, the cup, is empty, you are not able to ‘pour’ love on to those in your life and help them.

Whether you are a spouse or a parent, or both, or have other responsibilities to parents, or a career, you can’t fulfil those responsibilities unless you have fully cared for yourself first.

Self-care is a subject we are passionate about at Astral Fitness, always talking with you about how else you are looking after yourself outside of the one hour of massage you are receiving with Chloe or Jen. That one hour can have amazing effects on your muscles, mind, and overall wellbeing, but it will not balance out or erase a life full of other imbalances.

It is also very easy to schedule a massage and think that will be enough, you’ve ticked the ‘self-care’ box and you can move on, not another thought.

You are the Best Investment You Will Make

Jen and I will always ask you how your activity levels have been, whether you have managed to exercise, what your stress levels are like. Many regular visitors to Astral Fitness use it as a check in with themselves as well as with their muscles. A monthly MoT if you like, even if there is no pain, even if they walk in and say, ‘I feel great this month’, we will respond, ‘and that’s why we do this regularly, as a preventative rather than a cure’. And that is the beauty of massage as well as other self-care treatments, they are not a sticking plaster to cover the cracks of something else, they are check in points with yourself.

Having a monthly massage means twelve checkpoints in the year, that’s just half a day out of 365 of them. We have all got time to spend half a day taking care of ourselves… so don’t delay and get yourself booked in with Jen at for a massage this January and start the year as you mean to go on. We strongly advise you book at least two appointments ahead to get the best day and time for you.

Thank you for taking time to read this week’s blog – You are the Best Investment You Will Make.
