Make wellbeing your number one

Regardless of whether you’re a mother, a school teacher, self-employed, roll with the corporate crowd, are a bureaucrat or otherwise, I can pretty much bank on the fact that we all put our day jobs at the top of our list of priorities, and leave our own wellbeing lagging far behind. Is this true for you? I’m certainly guilty!

Over on Khoollect this week we’ve put together some practical tips, feel-good activities, and wholesome suggestions to help make a series of improvements to your own wellbeing. Eat better, exercise more, get more sleep, and take time to relax – it all sounds simple really, doesn’t it?! But, if you need a little prompt in the right direction, then pop the kettle on, grab a 15-minute sit down and get amongst some reading to start making some positive steps to taking better care of YOU!

Exercise doesn’t have to be arduous to make you feel good. There’s a never-ending list of fun team and individual pursuits to get you moving (and laughing) indoors and out, but our list of suggestions is just that little bit more offbeat.

Healthy oils are the order of the day and lately we’ve become infatuated with macadamia nut oil. This delicious alternative to your standard olive, coconut and others adds a touch of glam to your homemade dishes and can even pep up your beauty regime.
