Team Fine Fettle - Three Mole Hills

Team Fine Fettle are just getting their thermals out for our trip to Denbies on Sunday to support the Three Mole Hill runners.  This race includes three hills, no surprise in the title!!

The first leg is on Box Hill, the second leg is up to Norbury Park and the third leg is up to Ranmore Common.  In total a distance of 15 miles that can be done in a relay team of three or for the more hardened hill runners the total distance as an individual.

SOME OF THE TEAM




They forcast snow so fingers crossed Nicky the organiser from Events to Live lets us go indoors to work our magic on tired legs.  I am not sure I will be able to move with all the layers I plan to put on for Sunday!! Considering a duvet!! 

Good luck to all the runners and well done for raising money for the Queen Elizabeth Foundation (QEF), Leatherhead.  We will be taking donations for QEF for any post event treatment given on the day.

National Stress Awareness Day - November 3rd 2010

It is the 12th National Stress Awareness Day TODAY!!! Wednesday 3rd of November.

Relaxation: Luxury or Necessity?

We live life today at such a fast hectic pace, even general day to day living can build up pressure.  Unless we regularly reduce this pressure the stress caused can have a detrimental effect on our mind and our body.  Some pressure is beneficial helping us to organise our lives and focus on what we need to achieve.  However if we allow the pressure to continue building it can have the opposite effect leaving us feeling unable to cope, exhausted, tense and inadequate.  This can then have a knock on to our physical health dampening our immune systems so that we are more susceptible to illness. Stress can also cause sleep deprivation and worry which can affect our ability to concentrate and the list goes on....

Relaxation can help us restore balance, giving us time to reassess and prioritise enabling us to continue on once again.

So we at Fine Fettle believe the answer to the above question is a resounding.........NECESSITY!

We think that targeting stress by using both mental and physical relaxation can be doubly effective.  So a bit like the old "pick "n" mix" you choose two therapies from back massage, reflexology and hypnotherapy and we will combine them in an hour long session.
