Autumn is descending rapidly, with piles of leaves starting to collect at our feet as we trudge the streets or stroll through the park. But how resilient are you to the elements? Do you cave in at the first cooling of the temperature and reach for the hot water bottle? The fact is that, unless we’re vulnerable (very elderly or fighting a serious illness), it’s good to develop a reasonable level of hardiness. If, by early October, when it can’t be said to be anything other than mild, you’ve already used your central heating, then you could try being a little tougher. It’s an excellent form of self-discipline to learn to put on layers and stay active, rather than to lock yourself indoors with the heating on when it’s not even particularly cold yet. Some forms of relaxation therapy can help, especially gay massage London is not like Herefordshire or Scotland; it doesn’t get bitterly cold until December or – at the very earliest – November. It’s not winter yet, and if you’re feeling the cold, it could be partly to do with tension – exactly the kind of thing that can be diminished by gay massage London probably won’t be bitterly cold for another two months or more.
Of course, it doesn’t help that by September, we already start to see Christmas promotions in shops and on high streets. These displays – often depicting snow scenes and icicles – trick the mind into thinking it’s winter and so, when we get home, we unthinkingly reach for the thermostat. It’s better not to fall for it because the more we resist the cold (for example, by turning on the heating unnecessarily), the less we’re able to tolerate it. Bit by bit, without evening noticing it, we’ll turn on the heating a little earlier each year until we’re quite without natural defences. It’s not, of course, necessary to develop the kind of hardiness that some Londoners display – for example, those who continue swimming in the Serpentine without wetsuits throughout December. As impressive as those people are, they’re at the far end of the scale. But if we simply nurture within ourselves a little bit of fortitude, it’ll pay dividends in years to come. If the idea of tolerating the cold leaves you feeling like a shivering wreck, then it’s time to book a thoroughly relaxing, re-centring session of gay massage. London gives you a lot of options because all the best practitioners from around the world are here. Allow yourself to unwind in the arms of a fully-qualified and trained therapist, and you’ll find that you’re better able to withstand cooler weather. Tension and unresolved worry always makes it harder.
With any luck, you’ll find that after your appointment, you arrive home and no longer need to blast yourself with artificial heat. As well as being better for you, this newfound reluctance to heat your home prematurely is better for the environment too.
