Managing Your Stress Levels

It might be your automatic reaction? Nothing new. If it is, so we’ll conquer and general knowledge we would experience so much stress? Knowing it cognitively and process it internally are two different things. Do you live your knowledge? You also know it is advisable to drink 8 glasses of water a day for better health but how many people do it? Although you know you will feel better, why don’t we do what we know is good for us, and by not doing it, we feel guilty. It might be laziness or lack of self-discipline or a ‘don’t care’…

Overcoming Post-Christmas Blues in January!

This is a simple framework to overcome festive blues and to get back to feeling in control over one’s life: - After spending a wonderful holiday over the Christmas and New Year period some people feel post-Christmas Blues, defined as a mental distress occurring after holiday season. The Year 2016 was a difficult year for many people. Some believe the planets play a role in it. Factually, the Rand weakened, people lost jobs and commodities rose in price.

These women (and men) find themselves having to defend against arguments such as “that’s selfish”, “You’ll change your mind”, “you are going to regret this”, “that’s what you were put here to do” and “when you have your own you will understand”. Does giving birth…

Why eggs and rabbits?

This past weekend many Christian and non-Christian people all over the world celebrated Easter. I had a lovely brunch some close friends and then watched kids and adults happily hunt Easter eggs in my front garden. All very fun and very traditional.  But where does this tradition come from? I’m sure by now you have realised that eggs and rabbits have nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Unless you are one of those creative people who thing that perhaps the rabbits were protesting the putting up of crosses on the hill where they live? My social media…

What I know at almost 73 – an interview

Dear friends, clients and random readers, My social media assistant, Jané, started bombarding me with questions this past week. Her inquisitiveness has resulted in us asking other women these questions too. I thought I’d share the interview she conducted with me last Friday. Perhaps you’d like to reflect on these questions too? Feel free to e-mail her your own answers to social@drcecile.co.zaso that we can share them with our readers and Facebook page over the next month. Here is what she wanted to know: Jané: What do you know at almost 73 about men? They are very different. Some are trustworthy…

5 Tips for singles this Valentine’s month

Valentine's day is a day of cupids and couples, but usually not if your single. Should you find yourself single in this month of love you need not despair as there are many things you can do to keep your heart chakra active and fulfilled. Singles have plenty of love to go around. In Hindu Yogic, Shakta and Buddhist traditions your heart chakra (called Anahata) makes decisions ("follows one's heart") based on one's higher self, not the unfulfilled emotions and desires of lower nature. It is also associated with love and compassion, charity to others and psychic healing. I've put together…
