Maintaining holistic wellness practices over the festive period can often be a challenge. With so many social activities, getaways to plan, and Christmas shopping to do, it’s not surprising that healthy eating, self-care, and exercise fall by the wayside.
To help keep your mind, body, and soul nourished over the holiday season, here are our top 5 tips.
Our exercise plans tend to go out the window with the arrival of the festive season. Whether you are jetting off on holiday or have the whole family coming to stay, it is often difficult to fit in a much-needed workout. If you can't hit your favorite yoga class or a session at the gym, try and change it up with fun family and friends activities, whether bike-riding, beach volleyball, or a round of cricket in the garden.
Elevate your Beauty Ritual
The holidays can often wreak havoc on our skin with so many celebrations and indulgences. Consider your skincare goals for the season. Perhaps you want glowing party-ready skin or a nourishing treatment to hydrate thirsty skin? Updating your daily skincare ritual by adding an essence, serum, or treatment can give you the perfect boost to reach your holiday skin goals.
With so much merry-making, mulled wine, festive cocktails, and glasses of celebratory bubbles, it is easy to become dehydrated. To help, start the morning with a glass of cold water with lemon and ensure you drink at least 8 ounces of water per day.
Remember that dehydration can also take its toll on the skin, so this is the time to up the ante on your hydrating skincare rituals. Think hydrating mists, serums, lotions, creams, and nourishing overnight masks and treatments.
Book a Spa Day
The festive season can often deplete our energy, leaving both mind and body exhausted. If this is the case, it's often best to leave it to the professionals. Book a Jurlique spa experience and indulge in a signature facial, nourishing body treatment or treatment package for head-to-toe relaxation and rejuvenation.
With body and skin sorted, it is time to focus on the mind. Stress is all too common over the holidays, so it's important to nurture your mind during this busy period. Schedule five minutes of meditation per day—turning off your phone, tuning out the world and allowing a moment of calm to set you up for the day ahead.
