It's ok to have a bad day.

Seriously. It's ok. Nobody can go on smiling from dawn 'til dusk everyday of their lives. Nobody has the strength to stay committed to their tasks every minute of every day. Nobody can always and forever be happy.

And that's ok.

Maybe it's time that you forgave yourself for the moment of weakness and grumpiness. Don't beat yourself up over the loss of motivation that occasionally happens. It's true, that the chores don't do themselves, but leaving the grass unmowed for a day is not going to be dettrimental when you are simply too tired.

From time to time these slumps in your drive happen. Ok, nobody really wants to admit to them, especially when it comes to work. The problems start when we are lying to ourselves about it.

We are always transmitting signals. Other people will pick them up - often more acutely than we ourselves can. Thus, the way others treat you are probably a reflection of how you treat yourself. They simply mirror your behaviour, your attitude, your prejudices, your judgements, your tiredness.

So sometimes. You simply have to be kind to yourself and give yourself a break. Go for a walk. Stay in bed. Sit by the river. Eat a tub of ice cream. Read a book. Sing. Watch a funny movie. And pretend that you haven't a single worry in the world. Even for a minute.

It helps.

Yours in Health,

I was in so much pain last week I couldn’t imagine that I would feel this much better in 7 days

I first went to Mika About 2 months ago. I could not walk straight line or very far. I was also in pain as I have had two knee replacements. After about 3 weeks I can now walk upright and in a straight line. Also a lot of pain relief. I cannot recommend this practice enough.

I have been working with Dr Mika Janhunen of Shepperton Chirorpactic Clinic for four years. During this time he has not only been able to help me overcome various niggling injuries and to enjoy better health, but has been able to improve the performance of a number of my golf coaching clients as well. His detailed knowledge of the human body and the complexity of the golf swing movement pattern is virtually unrivalled in terms of results that I have ever seen. I will continue to refer my players to see Mika, and would encourage anyone to do the same.
