Global Wellness Day

8th June 2018, posted by Elemental Herbology

Global Wellness Day is celebrated on the second Saturday of June each year and is the perfect opportunity to ask the question, ‘How can I live a happier, healthier life?’

It’s a great time to ask how you’re feeling and what you can do to address any stress in your life. Below, we share eight simple steps to help you do just that.

Walk for an hour

Just like any exercise, walking releases endorphins. It’s also a great way to get some fresh air while taking in the scenery around you.

Drink more water

People who drink less water might suffer exhaustion, attention deficiency and memory problems. The more water you drink and the less carbonated drinks you consume, the better you’ll feel.

Don’t use plastic bottles

Single use plastic bottles cause damage to the environment. Buy a reusable bottle to reduce your plastic waste.

Eat healthy food

Try to consume foods which are produced through natural methods by using appropriate fertilization and weed control techniques without using pesticides and certain chemicals. Eating seasonally is a great way to enjoy local produce and have a varied diet.

Meet with loved ones

Eat a family dinner with your loved ones in a room where, if possible, there are no smartphones or TV. Talk about your day, listen to each other’s recommendations, stories and advice.

 

10pm bedtime

Sleep is a vital process during which our body regulates, repairs and heals itself. It slows down ageing and protects us from diseases. For a good night’s sleep, stop using electronic devices an hour before bed to allow yourself to drift off.

Have a treatment 

Allow any stress and tension to melt away with a spa treatment. It’s the perfect opportunity to rebalance and de-stress. Find your nearest Elemental Herbology treatment on our spa locator page here.
