Three small steps to LIFT YOUR MOOD with @adrienne_ldn
1. Go to mood lifting indulgence and why?
Movement. I love to move! So whether it's walking, running or stretching, I know that moving my body will always lift my mood instantly.
2. Best feel good book, movie or song?
You're All I Need To Get By - Marvin Gaye
3. Top mood lifting tip?
Try something new. Doing new things is always fun! You'll have zero expectations because you've never done it before. You might discover a new place / person / recipe / experience. Mix it up and stay open to chance.
Three small steps to FEEL GOOD with @mutha.hood
1. Best indulgence to feel good?
A little treat here and there is good for the soul and shouldn't be held against ourselves as a failing. I treat myself to fresh fruit - cherries, redcurrants, strawberries that I used to view as far too pricey to allow myself to have. This stops me from feeling deprived in some way, which helps limit them amount of times I feel the need to binge on high sugar items.
2. Best feel good tip?
I make sure I have a bath, if not every day then at least every other day. I play a few of my favourite songs and I allow myself to be calm. I'm a total completer finisher. I hate leaving a to do list for the next day and so I will always busy myself. A bath ensures I stop and nurture myself.
3. Favourite NEOM products to feel good?
Three small steps to FEEL CALM with @mind.body.bowl
1. Top book to feel calm?
My journal! Okay, so it's not a book as such, but it's the best tool for getting things out of my head.
2. Top tip to relax before and after work?
I try to stay off my phone in my room, and switch off my laptop in the evening. It's still a work in progress, but I always notice a massive difference when I do. Also, staying off my phone for the first few hours of the day is a game-changer. I try to keep early mornings to myself before letting the world in.
3. Favourite NEOM product?
I love the Perfect Night's Sleep Body Oil. I use it in my savasana classes, as well as before I sleep. It's like a fast track to relaxation and feels wonderful on the skin too.
