School's starting again ..... so that means getting back into your "normal" routine!

.

That's the tough part about the summer holidays, letting go of all the relaxed boundaries, schedules, and routines. There's no rhyme or reason to why anything does or doesn't get done. You fly by the seat of your pants day to day because your schedule just doesn't exist, and you're at the liberty of the kids.

But, this time of year - the new school year - sure brings a lot of comfort with it. The kids will go back to school and you've finally got that time to yourself again. You go back to eating meals at regular times and intervals. You'll fall back into a set sleep schedule - and most of all, you can put your fitness routine back into place. It sure sounds like a delight, doesn't it?

Now is the time to start gently easing into those routines so that when September rolls round you’re only a step or two away!

Here's some tips to get back into routine quickly:

Map out what helped you be successful before. Do things like laying your workout clothes out the night before, packing your lunch the day before, and getting yourself taken care of before the kids - the night before.

Meal prep for the week. You don't need 15 fancy, individual packed containers (although this helps!), but batch cooking the staples will help ease yourself back into the necessity of things.

Keep things super simple - cook one to two proteins to have on hand, cut up veggies so they're easy to grab, and have some starchy carbs of some sort ready to grab too. The easier you make this for yourself, the quicker you can get back to a balanced and sustainable diet.

Block off your workout times. The kids are not going to be crazy busy with activities just yet, so don't leave your fitness to "when you can fit it in". Just like their activities are prioritised, you need to prioritise your own and still look after yourself. You spent all summer being at liberty to their flexible summer schedule, that hour is for yourself now during the week. Book it in for the month, ahead of time!

These tips aren't anything complicated, but that's the point. Stick to the basics. Repeat the basics over and over again and your success will follow.

Gleeson Dental, located on St Anthony’s Place, is now offering facial aesthetics.

It is the latest offering from the town centre practice.

Dr Susan Gleeson graduated as a general dental surgeon 27 years ago.

She previously worked in England and Cork before returning home to Killarney in 2009 to take over her father’s dental practice with her sister Katie.

“More recently, I decided to pursue my keen interest in facial aesthetics. Hence, I embarked on an intensive training course,” she told the Killareny Advertiser.
“This mentorship is under the guidance of Dr Sheila Li, a Harley Street based dentist with over 10 years’ experience in facial aesthetics. Every year following an interview process, Sheila takes on six trainees and I was lucky enough to get this amazing training opportunity.”
The course is a year-long process involving in-depth learning and hands-on clinical training days in Dr Sheila’s Harley Street clinic.
The course, also, extends to treatment planning cases with Dr Sheila, thus allowing access to her vast knowledge when planning treatments for Dr Gleeson’s patients.
“Therefore, I am now able to offer a vast array of facial aesthetic treatments at Gleeson Dental. These treatments include the use of Botox to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, Botox has a wide range of additional applications, including the treatment of tooth grinding, headaches, gummy smiles, neck bands and excessive underarm sweating,” she added.
Dermal filler treatments are, also, available to treat issues related to volume loss while skin booster treatments such as Sunekos and Profhilo can be used to regenerate and rehydrate tired looking skin.
Facial aesthetics may conjure up images of over-filled expressionless people but Susan hopes to change people’s view of it.

With properties both for rent and for sale in short supply, prices in the Killarney area have remained strong.

In fact, houses with the V93 eircode were, once again, the most expensive homes in Kerry over the past 12 months according to data published by the CSO Residential Property Price Index. The report shows that in the year to December 2023, the average cost of buying a home in Kerry was €242,000 up 5% from the previous year’s figure of €230,000
Nationally that figure now stands at €327,000.
The average house price within the V93 eircode region was €284,000, 17% approx. above the average price for a home within the county.
With supply levels at an all time low and with very little new construction in the pipeline, there is little sign of this changing in the immediate term.

Commenting on the market, Ted Healy of DNG, has expressed concern with the low volume of properties available for sale at present.
‘We have lots of interested buyers seeking property in the Killarney area but unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the demand at present. The past 12 months has seen us securing sales in record time for record levels.”

DNG Ted Healy will be launching a new development of townhouses in the Woodlawn area to the market in the coming months and report that demand is exceptionally high.
The expect these properties to sell out in record time.
And with construction due to commence shortly on another scheme of detached houses on Muckross Road, it is looking like a busy year ahead.
However, this will not be enough to satisfy the demand at present. Properties within the V93 area are highly sought after and in very short supply, resulting in strong prices being achieved.
So is now a good time to sell your property? Yes, according to DNG Ted Healy who is actively seeking properties for sale to satisfy their ever expanding list of buyers.
