Wellness Weekend 

with Lillie

When did we all get so busy (again)? It makes keeping up good habits especially hard, but nourishing your body, exercising and sleeping well is a good place to start.

When did we all get so busy (again)? It makes keeping up good habits especially hard, but nourishing your body, exercising and sleeping well is a good place to start.

With the launch of our new fabulous yoga ladies we'll dive into each of their yoga asana (pose) and check in on Abi's wellness journey. We'll share our tips, and we'd love you to share yours - let's inspire each other. Let's do this together. 

For Body & Soul - Meet Lillie

Yoga Pose: Lotus

An important foundational pose in yoga. It's known to calm the mind and prepare you for deep seated meditation whilst stretching the knees, ankles, and hips, and also strengthening the spine and upper back. We love Lillie, her open pose and textural curves that symbolise harmonious calm. She serves as our daily reminder to take 5, and breathe deep.

Break into a Sweat: 

Inspo from Abi's fitness journey.

"Since January, I’ve really tried to get into exercise and I try to work out 4 times a week. Generally I’ll rebound with weights and I tend to use both and Sanfran fitness for workouts.  I’m also (although this is super recent) getting into barre exercises which I am really enjoying by Sometimes with my bonkers biz it's hard to get motivated, but I have really made a conscious effort to push myself and my energy levels have definitely improved." 

Abi's 3 tips to staying motivated:

1. Get your work-out clothes out ready the night before so you don't have to search or think about them. 

2. Knowing that I can devour my breakfast smoothie as soon as I've finished gives me something to look forward to. 

3. Following a workout programme ensures that I do the full 40 minutes rather than my inner voice telling me I've had enough after 10.

Encourage wellness in your pad

Making sure our home serves our physical and emotional needs is a large factor in supporting our wellness journey. Dedicating a special corner to create a relaxing nook for you to take some time to be with your thoughts, read or meditate can have a big impact. Make it inviting by layering it up with enticing textures, add in some ambient lighting, some scent and somewhere to pop a cuppa, and voila - you have a special place - just for you. Even just 10 minutes a day will get you on the right track to introducing moments of calm into your everyday.

Stay Nourished

Recipes in the week for me have to be super speedy and nutrient rich. Things I can whip up quickly are packed with flavour and most importantly are easy to execute. A super tasty dish from Chalkboard Magazine, Brussel Sprout Hash with Crispy Parmesan packed full of veggie goodness, it makes a great weekend breakfast as well as light supper and it's a fabulous way to use up any leftovers too.
