Milesian Manor Celebrates Self Care Week 2018

Posted on November 13, 2018

May grew up and lived her life in the city of Belfast but now really enjoys living in her new home in the country. May plays a very active role in Milesian Manor and is always first to arrive at activities, May especially enjoys guided relaxation, going to the movies and our live music events. She is a very caring person by nature and is always kind and helpful to other residents.

When Mays children were grown up and left the family home, she studied to become aromatherapist in her mid 50’s, such was her passion for relaxation and self care. She had her own private practice and treatment room in her own home where people would come for a massage and she used to massage her own grandchildren when they were babies. If someone was sick they often turned to May as an alternative therapy and she would research their condition and create a potion for them to bathe in, with fantastic results.

May along with our other wonderful residents will be taking part in some pamper sessions and guided relaxation therapy this week. When asked for her top tips for self care and living a good life May said -

Spend time with family and friends.

Laugh lots.

Keep active- ‘If you don’t use it you lose it’

Keep your mind busy by going to activities.

Socialise but also take time for yourself to recharge the batteries.

When life knocks you down, always get back up.

If something is bothering you, tell someone and it will help you.

Look after your life and it will look after you.

Mind your own business!
