Did you know?
that sleep is as vital for you as food, water, sun and air. It is important for you to get enough sleep to recharge your brain, balance your hormones and let your cells repair themselves. Work on a soothing routine before bed. Switch off technology, have a calming tea and read a gentle book. (

On the subject of sleep, here’s an article giving 10 tips of how to get great sleep

that if you’re feeling stressed and over whelmed by everything going on at the minute with work, juggling lots of tasks, childcare, well… you know what the stresses are.
Take some time out and practice Fitness Pilates – this is why –
Key benefits for stress relief –
*A sense of calm and wellbeing is encouraged by the relaxation of tense muscles during Fitness Pilates.
*Fitness Pilates releases endorphins, which naturally cause the body and mind to feel more relaxed and positive* Your sleep will improve with regular Fitness Pilates, which will greatly reduce any fatigue and stress.
* You will feel energized and invigorated, because Fitness Pilates forces you to focus on the present moment and the movement you are performing, to the exclusion of your everyday preoccupations and stresses.

Something to think about
Surround yourself with people who push you, who challenge you, who make you laugh and make you better.

I’d recommend/encourage you to book your place in the new September 6 week blocks of Fitness Pilates classes on a Tuesday in Craiglockhart Church Hall and/or Thursday in Dreghorn Loan Church Hall, Colinton – both classes at 7.30pm. You can email me to reserve your place. If you pay for the whole block on week 1, that guarantees your place. I’m sure that there will still be a place for you though if you want to PAYG if you can’t make each week.
If you email me this week to book your place in either class above, don’t worry – I will get back to you asap. I’ll need to find an internet café as I don’t have an iphone!

Advance Notice: On Thurs 18 September, due to the Referendum, our 7.30pm class will be in The Dell Room, Church Rooms, Colinton Parish Church (in the village – I’ll remind you nearer the time.
It’s a lovely room that we’ve used before when the Loan Hall’s being used for Elections).

I look forward to seeing you next week.
