Summer is on the way and we all want to look (and feel) great! But in order to look your best, you need to focus on healing from the inside out. At Master Oh we believe that spiritual wellbeing is one of the most important components to living a full, mindful and happy life. Follow our simple tips to improve your health and vitality for summer!
Eat your greens
With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time to start that diet – and we don’t mean one of those ‘fad’ diets where all you can eat is cabbage soup. Fresh fruit and vegetables are plentiful at this time of year, so stock up on brightly coloured vegetables such as red and orange peppers, sweet potatoes, cucumber, spinach and lettuce and whip up a delicious salad. For those who don’t want to feel like they’re eating rabbit food, serving something hot with your salad works a treat – a slice of quiche or some roast chicken is a great way to feel like you’re treating yourself but also eating well. Try to snack on fruit or healthy items such as carrot sticks and houmous or unsalted nuts. By eating well, not only will you feel more energetic, but your skin will glow and you will look great!
If you’ve already given up on your New Year’s Resolution of going to the gym everyday, don’t worry! Many of us make it to spring and forget about our exercise regime – then comes the panic of baring all on the beach this summer! Try to find an activity that you enjoy – whether that’s long country walks with the dog, rock climbing, swimming or jogging. Research proves that if you enjoy your exercise, you’re more likely to stick to a regime. Why not pick an activity such as rock climbing and get your friends involved? Turn an evening of exercise into a girl’s night out – being with other people will enhance your competitive streak and you’ll have a more intense workout!
Try some therapy
No, we’re not talking about seeing a counsellor – although you can if you want to! We mean holistic therapy – think a long, relaxing aromatherapy massage, a blissful energy healing session or a bespoke homeopathic remedy to finally rid you of your headaches. Battle your health demons head on and enjoy the opportunity to relax and unwind. If money is tight, whip up your own treatment at home – a few drops of essential oil in your bath or blended with a carrier oil for a massage is a great way to unwind.
In no time at all, you will be feeling fresh as a daisy, looking great and ready for the summer.
