Joy isn’t just for Christmas, it’s for all year around! Nonetheless, January is the ideal month to focus on some self-care whilst setting yourself up for a great 2022.
Here at Manchester Arndale, we’ve pulled together 5 top tips to support you in having a joyful January, as well as getting yourself ready to start the new year with a spring in your step.
Tip no1 – Health
It’s no surprise that health and getting in shape is usually at the forefront of people’s mind in January following a little overindulgence at Christmas. So, kit yourself out with some stylish gym kits from Victoria Secret PINK, JD and Footasylum Women.
Tip no2 – Detox
Top up your energy levels and support your body for getting in shape with delicious and nutritious smoothies and juices at Boost Juice Bar, Fruiteiro Du Brasil and Fuel Juice Bar. Try a little plant-based magic during Veganuary with a range of their drinks and juices 100% vegan.
Tip no3 – Vitamins
Give your body the best fighting chance to support you through any cold or flu this winter by ensuring it receives all the vitamins and minerals it needs. Superdrug is currently offering 3 for 2 on selected vitamins – don’t miss out on this offer and head to their store today!
Tip no4 – Rest
Ensure you are giving yourself time to recuperate, curl up with a good book for an hour each night as this relaxes your nervous system and sets you up for a great sleep. Turn off all electronic devices and allow the body and brain to unwind naturally away from the stimuli of blue lights, whilst reading something great. We have a great selection of books from Waterstones including bestseller ‘The Thursday Murder Club’ by Richard Osmand. Or give Dr Alex George’s book on living a healthier life a read and plan for a happy body and happy mind for 2022.
Tip no5 – Pamper sessions
Nourish your skin with a hydrating treatment that not only feels great but will lift your spirits and leave you feeling fresh, available at Rituals. Their Ritual of Jing collection focuses on helping you cultivate the art of calm and tranquillity. We recommend their ‘go with the flow bath foam’ for a relaxing and calming bath before bed.
You can also treat yourself to new make-up, starting the new year as you mean to go on, in style, feeling and looking good. At Morphe they recommend their best selling products, the new ‘Sweetest Tea’ palette, full of warm matte and shimmer colours, as well as the Morphe X Ariel brush set.
