January. Everyone knows the score. It’s the first week of the New Year and the Christmas treats have long gone from the office cupboard, no one wants a turkey sandwich and you start thinking that you might return the gym leggings you received from a well meaning relative.

 

Don’t panic!  We’ve pulled together some classic scenarios January can throw at you and made a handy guide to master it.  You can achieve a complete zen-like state of well-being (with the help of some 2017 #buzzwords) after the Christmas frenzy. Not convinced? Have a read to put a bit more positivity into your New Year…

 

#1 Meeting up with old friends

Your oldest friend that you haven’t seen in months asks to meet up in light of a New Year’s resolution ‘to see more people’ and you both feel bad that you didn’t see each other at all over the run up to Christmas. Only issue is, your budget is as tight as your gym leggings right now and you’re craving something that feels like it’s doing some good.  Solution:

Daisy Green

Under £10 and a great little tasty treat that won’t hurt the waistline either.

Daisy Green Brunch

Go for brunch at this Australian inspired café in central London and choose the gluten and guilt free ‘Shakshouka’.  Yummy baked free range eggs with spiced tomatoes will leave you feeling super healthy without breaking the bank.

#2 Get in on holiday season early

The New year comes around and so does a new batch of annual leave days to take.  Fantastic!  You browse a holiday to a beautiful Portuguese villa in June and with high spirits and the thought of some sunshine you click ‘buy’.  June is just over five months away, so it’s time to make a stab at any exercise you were going to pretend to do now.  Solution:

KX Gym

Health experts ready to kick that ‘inner athlete’ into shape in a super luxurious environment

PT Training Session at KX Life

If you are thinking about joining any gym in the New Year, the selection of classes and experienced at KX is enough to motivate you.  Try a Body conditioning using TRX class, Barre, Reformer Pilates and Olympic weightlifting; amazing for getting your mind out of holiday-mode and straight into the New Year and for toning up after a Celebrations chocolate box (or two).

Their wellness programs include a goal-specific plan completely tailored to you, which keeps you on the road to ultimate fitness. No room for excuses…

#3 It’s a marathon, not a sprint!

And lastly, if you’re just not ready to go back to office just yet.  If you need a few days to unwind following the crazy party season it might be time to treat yourself to a late Christmas present.  A spa day could be the perfect option to getting that ‘relaxed and refreshed’ feeling without leaving the country. Also, getting your full 8 hours after the heavy party season will boost your energy levels before you head back to the office.  Solution:

Rockcliffe Hall Spa

Find your inner peace with a helping hand from Neom wellbeing treatments this New Year.
