Well-Being Day

September 1st, 2011 - Uncategorized

January is well known as being the most depressing month of the year. Post-Christmas credit-card bills, failed new year’s resolutions, cold dark days, and long nights are bad news for emotional our well-being.

In order to create a little light at the end of the tunnel, The Lismore Clinic will be holding its first annual “Well-Being Day” on Sunday 29th January from 2-5p.m. This open day is completely free of charge, which is good news in these difficult times.  The event will be of particular interest to anyone who would like to find out about natural ways to reduce stress and improve emotional well-being, but all are welcome.

There will a number of useful talks throughout the afternoon including ‘Nutrition and Herbs for Emotional Well-Being’ by Medical Herbalist, AnneMarie Reilly, ‘Coping with Stress’ by Psychotherapist, Marianne Gurnee, and ‘Emotional Well-Being for Children’ by Art Therapist, Lorraine Shanahan. Other qualified and experienced practitioners will also be available for a free, no obligation, informal chat, and light refreshments will be available.

According to AnneMarie Reilly, director of the Lismore Clinic: “This is a difficult and stressful time of year for many people. Those who speak to their GP about feeling low or stressed may be offered anti-depressant drugs, but many people would prefer to avoid these, or feel they are not really necessary. Fortunately there are plenty of simple and natural ways to reduce stress and increase emotional well-being using safe and natural alternatives, or by following some very simple advice”.
