6 ways to be your personal best
The air is getting warmer, the days are lasting longer, and flowers are coming into bloom. It can only mean one thing—spring has officially sprung!
Published 01 September

The new season presents an ideal opportunity to reset and refocus. Spring is all about new beginnings, so now’s the time to awaken from your winter hibernation and flourish into the best version of yourself.

 

To help you on your way, we’re sharing six ways to enrich your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Ready to make like a spring flower and bloom into your best potential? Read on to discover our top tips.

 

1. Nourish your body

It’s time to spring clean your skincare products and focus on items that nourish, hydrate, and replenish your body.

Elevate your skincare experience by ritualising the process and taking time to meaningfully enjoy each step. For example, why not level-up your routine by indulging yourself an at-home facial? Or perhaps take the time to give yourself a stress-relieving scalp massage while washing your hair?

Products we love include aromatic hair oils, luxurious moisturiser, and fragrant body washes. Also, don’t forget to stock up on SPF—especially for those poolside days in the sunshine.

In need of a serious pampering session, book yourself in for a spa package at Endota Spa in centre.

2. Dress the part

As the saying goes, when we dress up, we walk taller. So, show up for yourself each day and dress for success by wearing clothes that make you feel confident and put-together.

This is particularly important when getting dressed for work or special occasions. When shopping for your spring and summer wardrobe, be sure to stock up on chic and flattering pieces that will add that extra spring to your step.

3. Prioritise self-care

The hustle and bustle of everyday life can leave you feeling stressed and out of control. That’s why it is important to take time to calm your mind and relax.

Decompress with an adult colouring-in book or sit back and enjoy the aromas of a soothing scented candle. We also recommend brewing an aromatic pot of tea and taking time to enjoy each sip in peace and quiet.

4. Embrace healthy habits

Allow the warmth and sunshine to motivate you to prioritise healthy habits. Practices we recommend implementing into your routine include drinking enough water throughout the day, putting on your runners and going for a walk within nature, getting your heart pumping in a high-intensity workout, or harmonising mind and body during a yoga class.

Can’t decide between reform pilates, body pump or yoga, secure yourself a Fitness First Canberra Centre membership to kick start your new healthy fitness habits and you won’t need to choose.

Whatever path you choose, if you are moving your body, you are on the right course to physical and mental wellness. Blog5.EmbraceHealthyHabits4

5. Love the skin you’re in

You only have one body, so it’s time to show respect and adoration for yourself (because let’s face it, this is the only body you will ever have!).

Reiterating positive affirmations and eliminating self-criticism are a few tactics for combating negative thoughts and nourishing your self-esteem. Other ways to show up for yourself include treating yourself with care by slipping into bed with a silk mask or pillowcase, taking extra time to pamper yourself each day with a gua sha or facial roller, and putting on make-up that elevates your existing features. It’s all about loving and celebrating yourself for all that you are.Blog5.LoveSkinYoureIn5

Step outside the box and explore the unfamiliar—you never know what passions you might unlock. Ideas include trying your hand at photography, embroidery, and writing—just to name a few!
