Healthier you in 2022

New year, new you – it’s a phrase synonymous with January 1. But how long do New Year’s resolutions really last? The global pandemic has reminded us how important it is to look after ourselves. And while we’re well into 2022, it’s never too late to make a promise for better health – and stick to it. Here are three vows we’re making.

1. Indulge in a bit of R&R

After the last couple of years we’ve had, some rest and relaxation sounds tempting. Loosen up with a massage, treat your skin to a facial, move your body more, but don’t forget to put your feet up and embrace moments that encourage you to pause.

From splurging on a new fragrance, to getting advice on a fresh skincare routine, finding an excuse to take care of you has never been more important. Better yet, bathe in a self-care routine that’s as good for the soul as it is for your health. We all love a hot bath, but this year, forget the bubbles and soak in magnesium flakes instead. The body’s magnesium stores are easily depleted under stress, and bathing in dissolved flakes is one of the fastest way to absorb its goodness. This mineral helps with muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system.

2. Switch to eco-friendly products

Looking after yourself doesn’t have to come at the expense of the planet. That’s why it’s time to reassess your impact on the environment. Consider switching to eco-friendly products, such as ReRange’s cruelty free products, that also offer recyclable packaging and natural ingredients. Remember, what you put on your body is just as important as what goes in.

3. Make regular health checks

An apple a day isn’t the only thing that keeps the doctor away; try having regular health checks. Start with a full body check-up every year and, depending on your health, it may be wise to get a once-over every three months.

Regular health checks can have long-term benefits and help you pick-up early warning signs of disease or illness. Heart disease, diabetes and some cancers can often be found in the early stages, and treatment may be more successful. Best of all, you can limit visits to the GP with a trip to the chemist instead – like Wizard Pharmacy Casuarina Square. You can get everything from your blood pressure checked to help managing your medication.

Download Wizard Pharmacy’s MedAdvisor app on the App Store or Google Play to help organise your medication and scripts in one place. You can also set reminders for when to take your medication, and even have it delivered straight to your door.
