Health Tips to Look Your Best on Your Wedding Day
Every bride wants to look stunning on their wedding day. Months in advance, we choose the perfect dress and the best look. But makeup and hairstyle aren’t the only things that make us look beautiful. The most important part is how you feel, because shining from within is the only thing that will make you truly beautiful. And feeling good starts by being as healthy as we can be, not only for our wedding day, but always. So, what can we do to make sure we feel our absolute best on our wedding day?
Start on time
You can’t switch to a healthy lifestyle a week before your wedding and expect to feel like a new person on the big day. It’s more likely that your body won’t adapt in time to a new regime, and you’ll just feel weak and possibly even ill. So, if you truly want to be healthy, don’t treat your lifestyle like a crash course before the wedding – commit to it now and stick with it in your married life.
Quality of sleep
If there is one thing you should never skimp on, it’s a good night’s rest. It is the only time when your body can rest and regenerate itself. Firstly, you should be getting between seven and nine hours of sleep per day, ideally following a natural sleep cycle. Next, you should establish a sleep routine and stick to it. You will feel a lot better, wake up easier and generally have a better connection with your body. If you have to go to bed and wake up early during workdays, you should try to do the same on the weekends, in order not to disrupt your sleep pattern.
Stress has serious effects both on our mental and our physical health. It can cause problems with blood pressure and heart rate, and it can cause serious complications. Of course, it’s impossible to completely avoid stress, but if you notice that there is something seriously bothering you, think of ways you can avoid it. Delegate wedding plans, organize work ahead of time and try not to have any unresolved issues in the back of your mind. Stress can also get worse do to a poor diet lacking vital nutrients, so taking supplements like Ethical Nutrients can help you combat stress better. You should also try to get in touch with yourself through meditation and self-awareness.
We all love moving our bodies. From our earliest days of playing tag in the schoolyard, exercise and movement feel good. But as we grow up, we tend to forget that, and focus only on what movement does to our bodies. It’s perfectly fine to be working towards an ideal body, but you should remember that the focus of exercise should be feeling good, and not torturing yourself. Find something you love doing, whether that’s playing volleyball, dancing or swimming, and your body will naturally adapt to support you in this activity. You might also enjoy exercising in company, in which case you should invite your friends to work out with you or join a class of like-minded people. If you are not working with a trainer, make sure you are doing only the exercises you’re completely confident doing, to avoid injury. Right before the wedding, you shouldn’t change anything about your exercising routine, but you should avoid workouts that make you feel completely drained for days afterwards, because you want to have enough strength for the big day.
We can’t always avoid sickness, but we can do our best to make our daily lives as healthy as they can be. And if you’re feeling good, you can be absolutely sure that it will radiate from you as you walk down the aisle towards your partner.
