Going on holiday can strike the fear in you, especially if the holiday has crept up on you and you are living in a matter of weeks. A vacation should be a fun time with your friends and/or your family. A time to relax and unwind and enjoy the good weather, amazing scenery and perfect sights. But we can all get a little dazed with the pre-holiday preparation. So I thought I would share with you some of the steps you can take to ensure you look and feel your best on holiday.
Ditch the diet and just eat well
You might be tempted to take on a crash diet before you go away, in the hope of losing a few pounds and getting into shape. But this isn’t sustainable and could have you feeling miserable. Instead why not focus on eating well. Look at your diet and ensure you eating a balanced one. Getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to function and survive. Sometimes it is this change that can be an ongoing thing. And you will find that things like your energy, your skincare condition and how you feel can all be affected, just by the food that you choose to eat.
Dress for your body shape
Your body shape is what it is, and often, you may not like how certain things look on you but this might be because you are not dressing for your body shape. We can all be guilty of confirming to a certain style, but actually why not embrace the new you and be happy with the body shape you have. Whether it is the one piece swimwear you want to enjoy or wearing dresses that flatter your figure, choose options for your holiday that look great but more importantly have you feeling great.
Start to be more active
Maybe you want more energy, and a great way to do that is to be more active in general. That might be in the way of walking more, taking on a new hobby like running or even just going to your local gym and embracing new classes or exercise regimes. It could help increase your energy levels and help you start to feel good about things. This could just be the lifestyle change you are looking for, helping you to develop new habits.
Prepare your body and feel your best
Finally, prepare your body as best you can before you go away, but do what feels comfortable and right for you. Shaving your legs, book in for waxes, get your nails or hair done, shaping your eyebrows or applying a fake tan before you go away. Whatever it is that helps you look and feel your best, get it sorted ahead of time so you don’t feel rushed and on the last minute. If you look good you will feel good, on the inside and the out.
I hope that these steps help you to look your best for your holiday.
