Whether it's due to long, stressful days at the office or a jam-packed summer social calendar, late nights, over-indulgence or being constantly connected can leave you feeling sluggish and stressed.
In an effort to learn how to truly relax and detox our bodies and minds, we visited the idyllic Yogarosa Retreat on the beautiful island of Ibiza where experienced yoga therapist Rosa Klein shared how exercise, diet, breathing and mindset play a role in our overall wellbeing. Read on to hear what we learned, then browse our edit of Fenwick favourites that are sure to get you on track to becoming your best self...
1. Take time to switch off
Whether it means visiting the retreat, booking a day at the spa or simply taking a few hours to yourself, make time to truly switch off - leave work at work and trade your phone, TV and laptop for a book or a walk in nature and allow yourself to truly enjoy your surroundings.
2. Start your day with some exercise
Whether it's a few minutes of yoga before you start your morning routine, a jog or an intense gym class, get your body and your mind moving to set yourself to get the most out of each day.
3. Nourish your body with energy-boosting foods
By viewing food as energy your body needs to properly function, you're more likely to make the right choices. Cook whenever you can using fresh and nutritional ingredients, and when eating out choose foods with high nutritional value.
4. Practice your breathing
Whether or not meditating is for you, focusing on your breathing at least once a day sends oxygen to your brain and helps you to relax and de-stress.
5. Prioritise sleep
Make yourself get the shut eye you need by turning devices off at least 30 minutes before bed. Instead, run a bath, put on a face mask or light some calming candles to get in the right mindset for sleep.
