As winter settles in and we tend to see cooler temperatures each day, it’s easy to fall into a pattern of hibernation and neglect our wellbeing. However, maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle during winter is essential for our overall happiness and vitality.

Here’s a few tips on staying on track and making the most out of the winter season.

  • Prioritise self-care: winter is the perfect time to focus on self-care and relaxation, especially when you’re already going 100% at work, uni or other aspects of your life. Treat yourself to a regular massage, facial or float session. You’ll ease muscle tension, improve circulation, reduce stress, and maintain that glow. Our state-of-the-art float tank rooms are a warm, comforting environment, with the tank water at the ideal body temperature.
  • Nourish your body: while we begin to incorporate warmer meals, it’s important to remember to stick to the nutrient-rich foods such as soups, stews, and roasted vegetables. Don’t forget to stay hydrated. We suggest sipping a herbal tea during the day to keep yourself warm and well hydrated throughout the day.
  • Embrace outdoor activities: Just because it’s cooler, does not mean you have to stay indoors all the time. You might find you’re getting stuck in the trap of turning the TV on to watch your favourite movie or show. While yes this is a great winter activity, there are numerous local markets and national parks around, that you can take advantage of. Explore your own backyard a little. This will not only keep you physically active, but also boosts your mood and immune system.
  • Experience the benefits of float tank therapy: float tank therapy offers a unique way to relax and rejuvenate during winter. This therapy involved immersing yourself in a tank filled with body-temperature water and magnesium, creating a weightless, stimulus-free environment that allows you to float effortlessly. Float tank therapy promotes deep relaxation, reduces stress, relieves muscle soreness, and enhances mental clarity.
  • Create a consistent sleep routine: we know this is easier said than done. But did you know winter often disrupts our natural sleep patterns due to the shorter days and longer nights. The night-owls will love winter! It’s important to prioritise a consistent sleep routine to ensure optimal wellbeing. This might include creating a sleep-friendly environment such as keeping your bedroom cool, dark, and free of distractions (yes, your phone and laptop are included). Establish a routine to wind-down by including activities like reading, meditating, or gently stretching to prepare for a restful night’s sleep.
