5 tips for staying happy + healthy before the special day ♡
Making sure your wedding is just perfect (or as close as it can be) takes a lot of energy!
It’s too easy to get wrapped up in the details and forget to look after yourself. And we don’t just mean getting your hair did or hitting the gym.
We’re talking about looking after yourself in every way. Mind, body and soul.
1. Do Something Different
Sometimes you literally just need to take a break.
Stand up, walk away from the computer, and go outside. Call your friends. Have a laugh. Visit some place nice. Maybe wait to finish this article first, though!
Whatever you do just try to make sure its unusual for you. After all, a new experience is the next best thing to a holiday.
2. Time Management
It sounds crazy to say getting organised while organising a wedding is important, but it really is!
There’s no need to throw endless hours at something when you’re unlikely to get an instant outcome.
You’ll be more effective if you break your tasks up into smaller, more manageable bites and aim to progress through them over time.
Keep a “To Do” list as well so you have something to refer to.
You’ll also be able to tick things off as they’re finished, which always makes you feel accomplished.
Break out the cucumber. It’s time for that face mask. Maybe a casual glass of wine. Just do whatever it is you do to unwind.
Your main goal is to recharge your batteries and clear your mind.
Feet up. TV on, phone off. No kid. No loud noises.
Avoid all things that require too much thinking.
Nobody likes the “E” word! So we’re not going to talk about hitting up spin class or punishing yourself with a personal training appointment. But if that’s your thing, go right ahead!
Instead we’d like to suggest a relaxing activity that gets your heart rate up. Something like yoga or pilates. Casual walks work well (with or without the beach).
Even just stretching can have a positive impact on your physical state, with the increased blood flow, release of tension, and improvement of your posture. Something like gardening also does the job (and then you get to eat fresh veggies, too).
5. Eat Right
This one is sometimes easier said than done for the time-strapped bride-to-be.
Whatever you eat make sure it’s got as much nutrient content in it as possible.
No crazy diets needed. Just aim for fruits and vegetables and eat as much as your body needs to.
Try to eat the rainbow! As in balance out the colours of your foods. It’s an easy way to make your meals more appealing visually while packing in as much of the good stuff as possible.
6. Take The Pressure Off
Our last unofficial tip is sometimes easier said then done, and you might already know this, but a reminder never hurts.
If you position yourself for success things will usually have a way of working themselves out.
At the end of the day the most important thing is that you join your partner on your new life journey and get to celebrate the event with your friends and family.
