K.I.S.S

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

The 21st Century is an amazing place to be right now with our high tech gadgets, medical discoveries and advancement in practically every area of our lives. And yet, in my world of health, fitness, nutrition and medicine, there are still worrying gaps in our participation and utilisation of this advance. It makes me think that the more advanced we become, the more complicated it feels. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, right?

Working in the clinic, my observation over the last year or so is that people are so confused with all the information they are given, that they have almost stopped trying. Is that how it feels? I’ve found that in my Kinesiology sessions, when addressing diet and lifestyle changes that my advice is going back to what I originally recommended to my clients, nearly 20 years ago.

'I Don't Need a Bargain, I'm Worth Full Price'

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

Those were the words from a recent client who had presented to the clinic with weight management issues.  This particular lady knew why she was struggling to lose weight and needed my help to achieve her goals.  She talked of being an ‘emotional eater’ for all of her life and wanted to change her current behaviour for a more appropriate one.  My client, Lucy (name has been changed) talked of struggling to walk past the ‘cheap’ chocolate section in a local store, somehow convincing herself that as the chocolates were cheap, they were a bargain and she must have them.

Therapy When You Least Expect It

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

What a week I've had since my last blog!  Working at Newport Complementary Health Clinic gives me the great pleasure in working with a wide variety of people, helping them find the answers to solve their problems. I'm sure that one of the things that makes me a good practitioner, is my real love of people.  I genuinely have a huge interest in people and enjoy their company (most of the time!). This allows me to enter into all sorts of conversations with them and hopefully help them with whatever they want to change.  But I have mentioned in previous blogs how my clients nearly always 'give' something back to me too.  A therapy exchange almost, something that I'm not frightened to admit.

Go Go Go Get It!!

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

My website designer friend has been on at me about blogging for several years now and I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only recently ‘got round to it’.  But now that I have, I quite like it.  It may seem as though I’m just rambling on, but there is always a point!  I have to say that since my holiday to a sunny island, I’ve been lacking inspiration and motivation to tap on the keys and then I realised that this very issue was a good topic for my blog!

You May Be Fit, But Are You Healthy?

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

At the time of writing, we are on day 4 of the London 2012 Olympics.  4 medals could be described as a slow start for Team GB, but I’m sure we are saving the best, ready to take the world by storm and show all those doubters that we really can do it.  Personally, I’ve been glued to the TV at any opportunity and cannot fail to be impressed and indeed I’m in awe of some of the talent on display.  A fantastic ride by Lizzie Armitstead into 2nd place and the historic bronze medal won by our men’s gymnastics team (and the commentators enthusiasm), nearly had me weeping patriotically into my coffee.

The Estate Agent & His Monk, The Millionaire and The Nun

Written by Rebecca Smith on .

I'm pretty down to earth, something that I'm proud to admit, so what I'm about to write in this week's blog pushes me to a new height.

I met an inspiring Estate Agent recently, who shared with me his vision for his future.  Having worked extremely hard in his life, he had stumbled across a piece of writing that had helped him move forwards in a different direction.  Not wanting to miss out and as he had spoken so highly of this work, I decided to read it too.  Now, I've only just started reading but I have already fallen for the ways of the Monk and his teachings.
