You know what the proverbial ‘they’ say; New Year, New You. This is the time to embrace change in your beauty and health regimes and to reassess how to stay healthy in 2017.

In the busy, and often frenetic, lives we live, it’s vital to take the time for some pampering and some healthy habits. And the great news is, that in 2017, this doesn’t even have to mean breaking the bank! So where to start? Here’s what we think:

Start with you

Wondering how to stay healthy in 2017? Well, the best place to start is with a long look at what you eat and drink, your sleeping habits, and even what you think. Because health and beauty starts from within and starts with some conscious self-care of numero uno. For starters, be cognisant of what you are putting in your body. Here are some pointers:

  • Stay hydrated – coconut water, green juices and mineral water are the best choices with any sugary or carbonated drinks being big no-nos.
  • Get the most from your food – people tend to spend enormous sums of money on beauty treatments and products, but much of what you need for ultimate health and beauty comes from fruits and veggies, and nutrients found on your plate. The right kind of nutrients can help your body to function at its best and help your hair and nails grow healthily.
  • Make sure that you get enough sleep – this differs from person to person but 8 hours is a good base because there are ample benefits to getting some good shut-eye.

Go natural

With all things ‘green’, organic and natural these days, you can be sure that one of our most recommended ways, when it comes to how to stay healthy in 2017, is to use natural beauty products. This trend is on the rise and for good reason.

More and more consumers are becoming aware of the harmful ingredients in products. And with the increasing amount of information out there on what those ingredients mean for us and our health, people are moving towards organic, cruelty-free, natural products that are better for us, the animals and the planet – and so should you.

Take a well-deserved ‘time out’

For those of us who can get a little too wrapped up in the daily chaos of life, sometimes the best thing you could do for yourself when you wonder how to stay healthy in all the madness, is to take a well-deserved time out from all of the madness and go on a retreat. In 2017, there is an array of different retreats you can embark on for all preferences. Choose one that is right for your lifestyle and your needs.

Do it yourself

Let’s be honest, many of us are on a budget! Sometimes we wonder how to stay healthy when money for ‘luxuries’ is a little short. The great thing is, the DIY scene when it comes to health and wellness is huge these days, because most people can’t afford fancy treatments or retreats all the time. And there’s no shame in it – all things DIY are super trendy these days and they are often safer than store bought products. Find out what it is you need and then do some research on some of the best DIY solutions for you!

Treat yourself!

While DIY is all the rage, every now and then it’s great to spoil yourself with a good spa pampering session. When wondering how to stay healthy this year, explore different options that spas now offer. They still offer their mainstream treatments, but many also offer exotic treatments such as Arabic rasuls, sound baths, skin peels and more. So go on, find one that appeals to you in a gorgeous spa setting and book it! After all, you deserve it!
