HOW TO KICKSTART YOUR WELLNESS RITUAL

HOW TO KICKSTART YOUR WELLNESS RITUAL

In the whirlwind of the daily hustle, finding the time to prioritise our wellness journey can sometimes feel challenging. But by introducing a few small changes and embracing a perfectly imperfect wellness routine, we can unlock the gateway to a happier, healthier version of ourselves. Let's dive into some practical tips and tricks to kickstart your realistic (and achievable!) wellness journey.

FOOD

When our schedules fill up, what we eat can sometimes take a backseat, but fuelling your body with nourishing food doesn't have to be a challenge. Often, a little preparation can go a long way. Planning ahead of time and cooking meals that can feed you over multiple days can save time and keep you on track with your health goals. Think batches of overnight oats, nutritious soups and delicious curries.

Focus on incorporating whole, nutrient-dense foods into your meals and opt for colourful vegetables, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates.

EXERCISE

Squeezing in a rigorous workout may seem daunting, especially with a packed schedule. Keep it simple and kickstart your exercise routine by focusing on movement that brings you joy, whether it's a brisk walk around the neighbourhood, an at-home workout, a dance class, or a short yoga session. Consistency is key, so start small and gradually build up. The goal is not perfection but the integration of movement into your daily routine. Fitness apps are a great way to make exercise more fun and keep you on track. 

ENERGY BOOSTERS

While coffee is a staple for many, consider swapping it out for tasty matcha. This green tea alternative provides a slower release of caffeine, avoiding the highs and lows associated with coffee. The sustained energy boost from matcha allows for increased focus without the jitters. It's a small but impactful change that can positively influence your daily productivity and mood.

Nothing impacts our energy levels more than sleep, so try your best to establish a relaxing bedtime routine, limit screen time before sleep, and create a cosy sleep environment. Even in the midst of the daily grind, find pockets of time for deep breaths or a quick 5-minute meditation.

HYDRATION

 Water is a multitasker, aiding digestion, nutrient absorption, and transporting essential elements throughout the body. It is also great for our skin! Keep those hydration levels high by purchasing a refillable water bottle and carrying it around like it's your sidekick. Natural, sugar-free electrolyte powders can be mixed with water, providing hydration and essential minerals. And for those looking to cut down on sodas, get your fizzy fix by adding a squeeze of lime to soda water for a refreshing drink. 

SKINCARE

Skincare is a form of self-care and an important addition to any wellness routine, but finding the time to give your skin a bit of self-care can always be a challenge! If you are short on time, use 8 drops of Activating Water Essence+ and 2 drops of your favourite Jurlique Face Oil for a quick and easy ritual that will leave your skin softened, refreshed and hydrated.

Embarking on a wellness journey doesn't have to be overwhelming. By incorporating these simple tips into your daily routine, you can kickstart a realistic and sustainable daily ritual that aligns with your busy lifestyle. Remember, it's about progress, not perfection.
