Health and wellness tips for the new year

Reading time 4 mins

January is here, and it’s time to start thinking about those New Year’s resolutions. Whether your list is a mile long or you want to make some small changes, here’s a list of some of the best health and wellness tips for the new year.

Schedule some self-care time

Whatever self-care means to you, it’s important to make time for yourself. After a busy party season with plenty of good food and Christmas tipples, your skin might be feeling a bit worse for wear. Why not book a complimentary consultation at Laser Clinics to see if a facial or skincare treatment could leave your skin feeling glowy and hydrated?

Or, if you’re looking to improve your daily skincare routine, The Body Shop has a huge range of cruelty-free products for all skin types. Their vitamin E range is perfect for hydration and comes in everything from face wash to toner, cleanser and night cream. For an invigorating feel, their tea tree range is the perfect way to give your skin a refreshing boost.

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 enjoy a good movie with no interruptions.

Join the gym

This one is top of everyone’s list each year so why not stick to it and come to Pure Gym Silverburn? Full of state-of-the-art kit and with a timetable bursting with classes like yoga, spin, and much more, complete beginners and regular gym-goers alike will feel at home here. Joining the gym can help to improve your heart health, strength and fitness levels, which is a great way to look after your physical wellbeing.

Don’t forget that a good workout can also help to improve your mood and have benefits for your mental health. Regular exercise can help you sleep better at night, in turn boosting your energy levels during the day. It can also help you produce mood-boosting endorphins, and can be a great way to work out any tension and stress you might be feeling. So it’s a great way to keep those January blues at bay!

Pure Gym is open 24 hours a day, so you can squeeze in a quick session around your busy schedule. With over 200 pieces of kit over two floors, it’ll suit any fitness programme. And, if you’re not sure how to kick-start your new fitness routine, talk to one of the friendly personal trainers about your goals.

Take part in Veganuary

Although vegan food isn’t just salads and vegetables, going vegan 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 in 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. You can even opt for a juicy burger at Bread Meats Bread, along with their This Isn’t Bacon topping that can be added to any burger.

For a sharing platter, try Thaikhun’s sweetcorn cakes, vegetable spring rolls, fried tofu and deep-fried vegetable dumplings. Or for a sweet treat, have a taste of the vegan cookie dough at Heavenly Desserts. You won’t be disappointed!

With more vegan options on the menu than ever, there’s something to suit every taste. So if you’re giving Veganuary a go, you don’t have to miss out on the flavour!

Start journalling

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. Waterstones is a great place to look for wellness resources, from self-help books to beautiful notebooks to get you inspired.

Why not try your hand at a bullet journal? Choose a fresh new notebook and some colourful pens from The Works and let your creativity run wild! A bullet journal is a great way to keep track of your goals, ideas, to do lists and appointments so you can start out your year the right way. Think of it like an fun, expressive mood board.

Start your journalling journey by writing down three things you’re grateful for each day. If you stick to that, 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. Sometimes, it’s the little things in life!

These are just a few health and wellness tips for the new year to give you a positive start to 2024. Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with what’s going on at Silverburn.
