Cleanse, detox, elimination diet… Are spring’s “healthy” buzz words causing you serious stress as you countdown to the big day?
Remember, being healthy isn’t just about working out or eating right. It’s also about peace of mind. And that’s why more and more modern couples are opting for non-food cleanses to eliminate mental and emotional clutter that piles up (especially while wedding planning).
This season, boost your mental health with these five wedding-focused wellness cleanses.
1. Try a technology detox.
Don’t let wedding planning detract from the most important thing on that to-do list: being with the person you love. Limit the time you spend buried in your phone or browsing the internet, and engage in more face time with your betrothed. Plan a date night that is technology free and vow to talk about anything other than the “I dos.”
2. Give yourself a break from negativity.
When you’re gearing up for a day when all eyes will be on you, it can be easy to worry about your perceived flaws. Commit to 24 hours or even a week, where you only say positive things about yourself. No self-judgement allowed! The more you can do this, the more confident you will feel before you walk down the aisle.
3. Rejuvenate your morning rituals.
How you start your day can make or break how healthy, productive, and motivated you feel. Set your alarm for 30 minutes earlier, and start the day with lemon water, a walk around the block, and a healthy breakfast.
4. Take a social media cleanse.
It’s easy to play the comparison game during the planning process, which adds to stress and detracts from your own special experience. Limit your use of social media to 30 minutes a day and spend more time visualizing your own perfect wedding.
5. Refresh your relationships.
Getting engaged seems to draw people out of the woodwork, all vying for a place at the big day. Before finalizing a guest list, ask yourself whose presence at your celebration will add to your joy and who you are only inviting out of obligation. This is the time to reach out and reconnect with loved ones you lost touch with over the years. Or, you can reflect and disengage from toxic friendships.
