Autumn is upon us, bringing with it darker nights, colder days and a little bit of sadness that summer is long gone and winter on its way. That’s why its the perfect time to take stock of your wellbeing. Once the Christmas season starts, you’ll be glad to have a good routine in place, and we’re here to help.
We’ve packed away the shorts and summer dresses, and it’s time to make way for loungewear and comfortable fabrics. Our wellbeing wardrobe is full of transitional clothing. Normally, this would mean season to season, but we’re talking outfits that’ll take you from the school run to walking the dog, coffee dates to evenings on the sofa. Soft to the touch, this set from Kim & Co Wellness features a long-sleeved top and joggers with a comfortable elasticated waistband, making it the perfect co-ord to wear while running errands. If the day calls for something extra-cosy, this WynneLounge hoodie and jogger combo is what we’ll be cuddling up in!
Stretch it out
Nothing helps us to feel better on drizzly days than getting our bodies moving. If it’s cold, wet and windy though, going outside is not quite as appealing! Setting up your own indoor workout is a fabulous way to help get your blood pumping, release endorphins and work towards your health goals. A classic here at QVC is the AeroPilates Reformer. We’re all massive fans, and it’s not hard to see why. It helps to work your entire body in a fun, gentle way, before folding up compactly for storage. Just a quick stretch of a morning can really get you in the right mindset for the rest of the day, while a session of an evening serves as the ultimate wind down.
Time to destress
Been a long day? Take a deep breathe in, and surround yourself with some calming fragrance to help soothe your senses. It’s amazing how different scents can instantly elevate our mood and they’re the perfect way to set the scene for a relaxing evening. Diffusers, like this one from Made by Zen, will fill any room with your favourite blend of essential oils, while edits like this one from Neom will take you from bath to bed for the ultimate calming evening. If a good night of rest is on the cards, this Neom edit and Scentered set both feature a candle that’s great for lighting while you unwind in bed, plus more scented formulas to help transform your bedtime routine. Need to unwind on the go? The fabulous De-Stress Balm from Scentered is the way to go. It’s the perfect size for popping in your handbag, and can be applied to pressure points whenever you’re feeling in need of a calming moment.
From the inside out
Feel like you need a little boost from within? Supplements can really help during the winter months, supporting everything from your gut health to your immune system. Reevaluating the supplements you take is a good idea as we move into the next months, when colds, bugs and poor weather can leave us feeling a little worse for wear, plus the weather can play havoc with our skin. We’ll be adding the OPTY.NC Skin Food Elixir Ultimate into our routines. It contains a mix of biotin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and vitamins A, B6, 12 and C to support the reduction of tiredness, fatigue and oxidative stress, plus contribute to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails. This do-it-all supplement is the perfect way to get all that goodness in one easy hit, so you can go about the rest of your day without a care in the world!
