Self-care is always important but even more so in the winter months.

.

Self-care allows you to tend to your physical and emotional needs so that you can be present and positive in your day-to-day life. This will help make you better, more motivated at work, more balanced and present in your everyday interactions with your family, children and friends. Small things like applying hand cream or having a bath can really help make you feel more grounded and balanced. A warm bath can help open the lungs and blood vessels, making it easier to breathe.

The winter months call for better care for your face and body. The dry cold air in the winter means that our skin can become more dehydrated, flaky and itchy. What better way to practice self-care than to take care of your skin. Take time each day to gently exfoliate or dry body brush which stimulates blood flow helping to warm up the body, keep the circulation flowing. Follow with a good moisturiser and serum.

It's a good idea to apply a face mask once a week to hydrate and build up the strength of our skin, especially after the age of 40.

It's a great idea to treat yourself to a salon treatment like a facial, massage or reflexology. Reflexology is covered by all health insurances, it's a really great treatment for balance, deep relaxation and grounding. For more information call Jill on 064 6632966.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
