Wellbeing:HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOURSELF FOR 2016?
It is 2016 time to look after your wellbeing, here is 16 ways you can do this from 1’For all your Beauty and Spa Needs…Mariasbeautyblog-Full of Beauty Tips.
1. MAKE TIME FOR Your wellbeing,
Maybe with a bath(i.e aromatherapy bath or have lay down and rest(maybe with aromatherapy oil) or pamper yourself a treatment(book with me).or anything where your just focusing on yourself and wellbeing.
2. TAKE A BREATHE.
Take a deep breathe in and breathe out.
It known to aid relaxation, try this technique breathe in through your nose until you fill your lungs, and breathe out slowly( for maybe 5 seconds) and repeat and continue for 5 minutes and do this every day and particularly when you feel stressed and build up to 15 to 20 minutes to improve your wellbeing.
3. GO BACK TO YOUR DREAMS OR GOALS AND GO FORWARD WITH IT AND MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR 2016.
Write it down your dreams or goals that you have had, whether it is from childhood or something you keep putting off. (Especially with life being so hectic, a routine with work, knock back and setbacks with home life, friends, family , relationships, children). Then work through the list and make them more tangible by doing research on the internet or read up on it to hear how people have done it. For Example drawing, painting, cooking , starting a business, changing career, studying : by doing a course whether it is a short course if you have less time ;or long course that is more in depth if you have time . Also going on youtube if you have less time and money they always have interesting and informative videos , that will talk and do step by step guides to the process or techniques.
4. GET REST AND GOODNIGHT SLEEP FOR 2016.
It is one the most important things we tend not do is rest and good night sleep it is very healing to the body, mind and wellbeing; stated by doctors, medical and health professional, therapist. Through helping the body to regenerate and regulate the bodies metabolism and numerous other health benefits.
5. FINDOUT WHAT YOUR SKIN TYPE IS SO YOU CAN LOOK AFTER YOUR SKIN PROPERLY(so read on to find out and then get products to suit your skin type from Maria’s Avon online store , I especially recommend Anew and Clearskin Range).
Appearance is dull and skin flaking or peeling, to touch is rough and dry.
Appearance is shiny but dull, may have spots, blackhead, to touch is smooth, oily.
Appearance is normal but when you perch the skin soft lines appear (like lines on a piece of paper) , to touch smooth but dry due to the lack of water in skin(so drink more water or a humid environment(i.e central heating).
Apperance is oily on the T-ZONE( which is your nose ,across your forehead,may include your forehead or chin) dry/dehydrated cheeks, forehead, chin characteristic explained above.
If you are sensitive skin your skin reacts or gets irritated easily whether it’s to products, the temperature i.e. hot water, touch i.e rough/abrasive exfoliation, especially perfume products. Skin appearance may have rosacea on cheeks and skin may feel tight.
Appearance is deep lines known as wrinkles, thin skin, slack skin , to touch un smooth, loss of firmness. However if skin is mature it may still have combination of dry, dehydrated, oily and sensitive skin, so need to take this into consideration too.
6. START CLEANSING AND MOISTURING DAILY MORNING AND NIGHT FOR 2016
Cleanse, Tone , Moisture to balance, heal, protect your skin . Cleanse to get rid of the dirt, germs, oil, dead skin and prepare skin for the moisturizer so it is absorbed. Tone to rid of any dirt, oil or dead skin the cleanser doesn’t get rid of as well as cleanser itself because believe it or not one cleanse does not get rid of every thing that is needed to be removed. Then moistures. Repeat morning and evening but change the type of cream you use ,so for the day use cream with SPF( Sun Protection Factor) and at night use night cream and/or serum and/ or facial oil depending on your skin type. You can find a very affordable range from Maria’s Avon online store.
A range products is avablibe my avon store coming highly recommended.
7. BE CONSISTENT WITH YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR 2016.
If you want your skin to look good you need to be consistent to see results. So cleanse ,tone and moistures daily, exfoliate weekly, facial mask application weekly . If you start using a new product or have new beauty /skin regime you need to do as instructed for a least a 3 months to see results. There is no point in doing it when you like and saying it doesn’t work.
8. START TO DETOX AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH TO IMPROVE YOUR WELLBEING.
I recommend Raw Food DETOX by Anya Ladra , or DR GILLIAN MCKEITH’S ULTIMARE HEALTH PLAN.
9. SWIPE UNHEALTHY EATING HABITS FOR HEALTHY EATING HABITS TO IMPROVE YOUR WELLBEING, REPROGRAMME YOUSELF.
Let’s begin with my old favourite Crisps(my favourite flavours is cheese and onion for the record).
I have swiped it for popcorn flavoured with salt, pepper and grated cheese. Slices of cucumber still get the crunch but not the calories. Hummus or guacamole with vegetable croutons.
Alcoholic beverages for tonic water slice of lemon or lime. , bitter lemon, soda water with slice of lemon or lime.
Milk chocolate for dark chocolate.
10. REDUCE ALCOHOL INTAKE (Yeah we’ve heard that before).
So if you have 4 drinks usually reduce by one , so next time you will have 3 drinks and so on, to slowly ween your of it. Alternatively, swipe alcohol for tonic water slice of lemon or lime. , bitter lemon, soda water with slice of lemon or lime.
11. EXERCISE AND YOU WON’T EVEN KNOW IT BY WALKING PART OF YOUR JOURNEY.
So if part of your journey you can walk instead of taking the train, bus part of journey , or park the car further away so you have to walk.
12. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND DON’T NECGLECT THOSE NIGGLE AND PAINS.
If it is hurting, aching, sore, cramped your not doing something right, most probably over working it. DO NOT JUST PUSH THROUGH WITH OUT TREATMENT . So rest, treat the aliment with ointment, medical cream or aromatherapy blend , seek holistic, health or medical professional for advice to save yourself a medical bill. The reasoning being ‘your health is your wealth’.
13. HAVE FUN.
By doing what makes you happy and laugh ,brings a smile to your face
14. DON’T HAVE REGRETS FOR 2016.
15. BE GRATEFUL IN WHAT YOU HAVE AND STOP LOOKING AT WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE.
16. LOOK AFTER YOURSELF AND OTHERS.
