Self Care for the Festive Season
Posted on 06th December 2018, by Lucy Wakefield

Self Care for the Festive Season

 Feeling more frazzled than festive? Read Lucy’s latest blog where she shares her down-to-earth tips for staying fit, healthy and sane at this super hectic time of the year.  If you love the whole twinkly build-up to Christmas but feel like you have so much to do that you can’t even stop to take a breath, I wrote this blog for you because that’s exactly how I feel every December. Excited but overwhelmed and completely out of my normal, strictly-scheduled, healthy routine. I’ve discovered the hard way that if I don’t set some personal wellness priorities and stick with them I end up feeling overwhelmed, stressed and unwell by the end of the year.  So just how can you enjoy all the preparations and accept...

My Inner Beauty Secrets for Outer Radiance

My Inner Beauty Secrets for Outer Radiance

The way our skin looks is always determined by a combination of factors – our lifestyle, our genes, our sleep habits, our diet and our stress levels, to name a few of the biggies. We all know this, yet we still take a largely external approach to our complexion, relying on an array of skincare products and the contents of our makeup bag to do the hard work of boosting radiance, hiding tiredness and generally making us look more like we feel we should look. Despite being savvy, well-informed, grown women, with a bathroom cabinet already heaving with potions and lotions, we find it hard to resist the seductive marketing claims of the beauty industry, the exciting magazine coverage of the latest must-have...

How I used yoga to improve my gut health

How I used yoga to improve my gut health

Keeping our gut happy and healthy is the holy grail of wellness these days. And with good reason. A healthy gut is a key component of overall, and even optimum wellbeing. With 80% of our immune system located in the gut, it makes sense that a happy gut helps us maintain a healthy weight, absorb more nutrients from our food, fight off illness and even help us feel more positive. I’m lucky not to suffer with any serious food intolerances or gut-related conditions myself, I do however - like most women I know -  experience bloating, food-related fatigue, gas and constipation despite what I could consider following a gut friendly-diet (healthy fats, nuts and seeds, plant protein, fish, slow carbs and...

3 Calming Rituals to Bring Close to Your Day

3 Calming Rituals to Bring Close to Your Day

Does your evening routine involve a quick cleanse of the face with a wipe to remove the day’s makeup, a snack because you were too tired to cook a proper meal and you’re now hungry, checking your Instagram feed one last time or shutting down your laptop as you reluctantly resist watching one last episode of your new Netflix obsession? Hmmm - how’s that working for you? We all know this kind of behaviour isn’t great for our sleep patterns but it’s hard to switch off and let go in our busy, modern world. Experts call this kind of behaviour “bad sleep hygiene” and we easily fall into these habits when we dismiss the importance of letting our body unwind ready for sleep. If you experience difficulties falling...
