The long dark days of winter are now behind us, making way for my favourite time of year, spring. The light mornings, warmer temperatures and the signs of nature kicking back into life often leave me a little giddy.
This boost of energy does, however, mean that I often over-commit myself, agreeing to things that I wouldn’t normally do. I can tell that this year is going to be no different. If this is you, then turn to page 19 and read LJ’s Journal on It’s OK to say no.
This issue has some brilliant articles to help take your business forward whilst looking after your own wellbeing. The CAM Coach has some top tips on how to manage stress (page 12) and Rachel Fairweather offers sound advice on how to Avoid Bodywork Burnout. If ﬁnances are troubling you then read Jane Sheehan’s advice on Understanding Cashﬂow. The ﬁrst thing that gets impacted when you have too much on your mind is sleep and Joannah Metcalfe has revealed her top tips for securing a good night’s sleep.
One of the things I love most about this magazine is the fascinating journeys people make into the world of holistic therapy. This issue is no exception, with Liz Badger’s feature on how she made the dramatic change from forensic scientist to therapist and Otto Haddad revealing the power of sound and its ability to heal.
If you are stuck for ideas for the trickiest person to buy a gift for, your Dad, then turn to page 38 for some fantastic ethical ideas to choose from. Also take a look at the naturally sweet present ideas for Easter.
As the weather gets better, it’s great to head outside and Charlotte Palmer has put together a delicious spread to enjoy al fresco. But if wild food is your thing, then Ed Joy reveals nature’s seasonal bounty.
So the joys of spring are here, the perfect time for fresh ideas and inspiration, which I hope you will ﬁnd in this issue. And spring fever for me too, as I agree to dust off my walking boots and take part in a 26 mile charity walk!
