When Lydia came to my house last week it was a revelation. Yes – we’ve been having onsite massage in the office now regularly – and that has been helping to keep us feeling we’re doing our bit to stay balanced. But right now I – for certain – need a bit of extra help, and our new Lydia may be my answer.
It is a well-recognised fact that the C21st is potentially the most stress-inducing time period in all of human existence. Well, well recognised to our office anyway – and well recognised to most of our clients who are extremely busy people.
With ever increasing levels of stuff – news – things to do, consume and communicate – I’m finding the need to take time to be. Create. Think. Have space.
Back to Lydia and reflexology. I’ll try to keep this short. In 60 minutes Lydia created for me 3 hours. Or so it felt. Every minute I resisted the urge to think – to panic – to wonder about the next 30 things I had to do. Reflexology in some way connected me (one of those holistic words that most of our Return to Glory clients complain when I use) to my ability to be calm.
And I’d be lying if I didn’t then admit that those 60 aka 180 minutes of compact calm enabled me to be far more efficient, creative and effective. Notice the new team week diaries that launched this week – that was the energy created by that calm. And time to – not – think. (P.S, an interesting connection to this is in the book Focus by Leo Babauta – a simple testament to the efficiency and effectiveness created when you create Focus and Calm).
