Here at Pacific Resort Hotel Group, we believe in the importance of taking care of both our physical and mental well-being.
The team at Te Manava Spa and Tiare Spa would like to share some tips on how they start their day off just right.
Practice these on a daily basis and we are sure you will achieve a sense of calm that will carry you peacefully throughout your day.
1. TAKE A MOMENT TO BREATH
Breath work helps the body system revitalise and contributes to a sense of calm rather than anticipating the rush of the day that we are so used to feeling.
Start your day affirming what you want for youself emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Tip: You could use affirmations that start with “I AM” such as…
“I AM perfect in this moment”
“I AM exactly the way I need to be”
“I AM calm and I know everything is working for me not to me”.
3. SET YOUR DAILY INTENTION
Take a quiet moment to sit and write down how you wish to go about your day. Energetically? Positively? Without drama? Only focusing on the positive things, think about actions you can take today that would demonstrate real value to you.
4. GRATITUDE GOES A LONG WAY
While you are at it, why not also note down 5 things you are thankful for. When you focus constantly on the things to be grateful for its hard to find time to focus on the negatives.
5. GET YOUR BODY MOVING
Stretch. Get moving. Activity releases endorphins, endorphins make you happy. Even a short 10 minutes can make all the difference!
6. NOURISH YOUR BODY
Eat a light but nutritious breakfast. If you are strapped for time, make a smoothie! Be sure to fill it with a colourful array of fruit and vegetables. There are plenty of amazing nourishing smoothie recipes on Pinterest.
Most importantly be easy on yourself. These ideas may seem new and different to you, so give yourself some time to get used to living consciously! We all stumble with mindfulness at the start but with consistency you’ll get there!!
