4 Self-Care Necessities You Should Stop Putting Off

In today’s increasingly busy society, it can be more challenging than ever to practice proper self-care. Many people have a tendency to feel guilty about taking the time and effort to devote to themselves. However, your health and longevity of life depend on the proper execution of these self-care essentials. Here are four self-care necessities that you need to stop putting off today.

Adequate Sleep

Getting enough sleep may seem like a no-brainer, yet many people to continue to put off getting a solid night of rest. The amount of sleep that is optimal for prime body function varies from one individual to the next. However, the standard recommendation is eight hours per night for maximum function. The body undergoes a transformative process while sleeping including the repair of damaged organs and tissue and the metabolization of hormones. Not getting enough sleep can have detrimental effects on the body and mind over time.

Chiropractic Care

Taking the time to visit the chiropractor can deliver a host of benefits. The body functions at optimal effectiveness when everything is properly aligned. Regular trips to the chiropractor can alleviate migraines, arthritis, anxiety, sinus problems, high blood pressure, and more! A body that is properly balanced will experience less tension and stress and a more positive feeling of well-being.

A Breast Exam

Regular breast exams are imperative for women of all ages. Manual breast exams should be done every month at home and at least once per year by a qualified professional. Although each individual case is different, it is generally recommended to begin annual mammograms beginning at age 40. Regular breast exams can catch breast cancer before it has the chance to develop and take root, potentially saving your life.

A Spa Day

While many people view a spa day as an extraneous indulgence, this activity is actually a self-care necessity that provides a wide range of health benefits. With a myriad of options to choose from, there is something for every personal need and preference at a day spa. Choose from a relaxing massage, a rejuvenating facial, and much more. While it may be difficult to find the time in your packed schedule for these activities, it is imperative that you make yourself a priority. Making the effort to practice these self-care habits will pay off big dividends for your overall health and well-being. One of the most important self-care necessities is wearing the right size bra. It’s amazing how much of a difference the right bra can make. Book an appointment today to find your perfect fit!

Colour in winter…why not?

Colour in winter…why not?

Why winter is the perfect season to dabble in colour…..

We know and love basics and there will always be a place for them, but sometimes it’s nice to try something a little different.  Give your wardrobe a little va-va voom this winter with a dash of salmon, red, blue and anthracite.

Why it works? “Winter fashion is all about layering, it means I can wear my favourite blue bra and no-one will know, it’s the perfect season to have fun with colourful lingerie” says Taryn aka The Bra Guru, who goes on to say “as long as we know the style and shape of the bra work for you, which we ascertain in your fitting, why not try something different”

Finding Your Perfect Shapewear

Finding Your Perfect Shapewear

Love it or Hate it, there are times when nothing else will do…

Read these Top 3 Tips from The Bra Guru on finding your

Perfect Shapewear!

 

Contrary to popular belief, Shapewear, will not help you drop a dress size… and choosing an incorrect size can only have an opposite effect and is sure to give you a night of indigestion. Nor…is it only reserved for the fuller figure.

Shapewear has the power to enhance and it can be comfortable, I Promise. So if you are not finding it comfortable, perhaps it’s time to look at some tips that will turn that dreaded circulation thief into your undercover best friend!

 

1. Don’t Buy Shapewear that is too small

Gosh, have we been getting this wrong for years?
Shapewear firms up your current size and in order to create a streamlined look, you want to go with a comfortable size. Start with your current brief size.

Too Small

 

2. How to put on Shapewear without dislocating your shoulder

Maybe a mild muscle strain is more accurate, even when you buy your right size, it can be a trifle tricky to get on.  Our recommendation is to step into your shapewear rather than trying to get it over your head. You should step in one leg after the other, then it’s a steady pull up.

Painful Shoulder

 

3. Choose the right style

If your tummy is your biggest concern, then control briefs are what you are after, if you are wearing a figure-hugging dress, then a shaper dress or shorts will smooth out any lumps or bumps.
There are definitely benefits to having a reliable pair in your cupboard when the occasion arrives. Here are my top recommendations:

Support Lower Tummy

Smooths Thighs & Bottom, Seamless

Supports Tummy, Waist & Bottom

The Bra Guru Cares

The Bra Guru Cares

The Bra Guru specialises in a highly professional lingerie styling service.  Our service is designed to assist a woman in discovering their perfect style and size.  It is also a chance for our clients to see all the options available to them as we have a range that covers, sports, t-shirt and lacy and more.  Every woman can find a fit, however there are a few who suffer from skin irritations and some severe cases of Fibromyalgia that find the thought of wearing a bra quite stressful and very uncomfortable. For most ladies going braless is not an option, so most women bear their way through the day with a bra and you can understand why they would find the bra an implement of torture, a situation that we simply cannot tolerate.

So, I was especially pleased when I came across Caira Donlon of Theya HealthCare, like me Caira ran her own lingerie store. Caira found more of her clients coming through searching for a comfortable bra after they had undergone breast surgery specifically.  It got to a point where Caira had no choice but to look into it.  It was surprising to find that everything available on the market was made from synthetic fibres, very little natural.  Women undergoing surgery are at their most vulnerable, so it became of utmost importance to develop something natural and comfortable to add support to this daunting and highly emotional ordeal.

What Caira has developed is a revelation, Her Theya Healthcare range consists of 5 bra styles and 2 briefs, the briefs are pelvic support post-operative briefs making them a perfect solution if you are undergoing any pelvic or abdominal surgery.

The Bras offer light to medium support and THEYA HealthCare’s post-surgical range is not only beautiful with feminine designs and colours, but also promotes both the emotional and physical healing process.  What makes them unique is that all their garments are manufactured with a unique bamboo fabric mix and special design features. The THEYA bamboo fabric mix is anti-bacterial, extremely soft, absorbent, and has excellent breathability

Clinical tests were conducted at the University College of Dublin, and the results came back that the 70% bamboo mix resisted 2 of the most common bacteria found in breast wounds after surgery. Making the healing process easier and quicker.

Every THEYA healthcare garment is tag, seam and wire free to avoid skin, wounds, and scar irritation, making this the ideal and natural choice for after surgery and also ideal for women who are receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

These same benefits make it an option for non-surgical purposes as well as due to its natural and soft feel it offers a completely comfortable solution for our ladies suffering with any skin conditions, it has even been used successfully by clients suffering with arthritis who find the front fastening appeal a much easier garment to fasten. I can also say this bra is so comfortable it can be worn as a sleep or leisure bra for ladies who do not like to sleep bra-less.

Theya Healthcare products offer you “A Hug in a Bra” and they are now available at The Bra Guru.
