|January is here; it’s time to start thinking about those New Year’s resolutions. Whether you have a list a mile long or you just want to incorporate one small change into your life, here’s a list of some of the best health and wellness tips for the new year.|
Join a gym
This one is top of everyone’s list every year so why not stick to it and come to PureGym right here at Silverburn? Full of state-of-the-art kit and with a timetable bursting with free classes like yoga, spin, and much more, complete beginners and regular gym-goers will all feel at home here. The gym is open 24-hours a day with over 200 pieces of kit over two floors, so you can squeeze in a quick session to suit your lifestyle.
Take part in Veganuary
Although vegan food isn’t just salads and vegetables, going vegan even for a month can have great health benefits. Or it could just be a fun challenge to kick off your year. BBC Good Food has enough recipes for you to make a vegan dinner every night all throughout January, but eating vegan doesn’t have to stop you eating out!
Silverburn is full of restaurants which offer delicious vegan food, so you won’t miss a thing. Try the sticky vegan ‘ribs’ from Wagamama, made from mushroom and soya protein, or the kare burosu ramen with tofu. Nando’s even has vegan replacements for their classic chicken, like PERi-Plant strips made from pea protein in their Great Imitator Burger, or a simple Spiced Chickpea Burger.
For a sharing platter, try Thaikhun with sweetcorn cakes, vegetable spring rolls, fried tofu and deep-fried vegetable dumplings. Or for a quick snack, stop at Greggs for a simple vegan sausage roll. Going vegan just misses out the meat and dairy, not the flavour!
Schedule some self-care time
Whatever self-care means to you, it’s important to make time for yourself. If a classic spa day is your idea of luxury, try out Pure Spa & Beauty and get anything from a manicure to a full body massage. With the amount of incredible treatments on offer here, we wouldn’t blame you if every weekend became self-care time!
If your idea of self-care sounds more like a trip to the cinema, you’re in luck – Cineworld Silverburn is open 7 days a week. Get comfy, grab the popcorn, and take a couple of hours to yourself to catch the latest blockbusters on the big screen.
Sometimes all you need is 10 minutes in the morning to write down your thoughts and plan your day. It’s a fantastic habit to get into, and sometimes buying the perfect journal is what you need to start you off. Head to Paperchase to browse their high quality and beautiful stationery – maybe a luxury notebook or a quirky pen is what will keep you in the journalling mindset. Choose from a classic lined notebook to quickly jot down your thoughts, or pick a dotted page and try your hand at Bullet Journalling! Waterstones is also a great place to look for wellness resources, from self-help books to notebooks inspired by your favourite novels.
Start your journalling journey by writing down three things you’re grateful for each day, and if you stick to that then by the end of the year you’ll have a journal full of good things that you felt this year ready to look back on. It’s the little things!
These are just a few health and wellness tips for the new year to give you a positive start to 2023. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram channels to stay up to date with what’s going on at Silverburn.
