Beach Kaftan Wellbeing
Post holiday blues can make you miserable enough without associated guilt. So recognise that these feelings are entirely normal and you are already part of the way there. The flat ‘low’ that we so often experience on return from holiday is the body’s way of rebalancing and adjusting the equilibrium back to normal life, just go with the flow and you will feel better in next-to-no-time. Be at One with Nature. All too often, we have grown accustomed to hours spent in the sunshine whilst on vacation. As soon as we return we instantly go back to hours spent indoors, staring at a computer screen, sitting in a train or car and watching TV. Make time to embrace nature and be outdoors, whether it’s just a walk to work, a countryside stroll or a spot of gardening – the fresh air will revitalise you and restore harmony in your soul. Think back to the holiday and how great it felt to be walking barefoot on the sand in a
On holiday it is so easy to savour every moment, with no chores, no work, it is possible to really live for the here and now.

The word exercise can strike fear, but with such an abundance of fitness activities widely available, there really is something for everyone. Physical exercise releases endorphins into the brain, improving your mood, and also allows you to be alone with your thoughts, a great way to clear the mind. From walking, jogging and yoga, to surfing, skateboarding and horse-riding, why not try something new, you never know you might love it.
The delicious salads and tropical fruit that is so abundant in a luxury resort is often quickly forgotten at home, in favour of carb heavy options such as pizza and pasta. Make the effort to buy fresh, raw ingredients to pack your body full of nutrients, and you will find that a riot of holiday-inspired colour on your plate will lift your mood far more than a pile of beige potatoes or pasta (not to mention improving your health). Certain foods are proven to reduce stress, including almonds, salmon and blueberries. B vitamins are also well-known to alleviate fatigue and induce relaxation, you can take a supplement, or this super-vitamin naturally occurs in beans, peas, nuts, liver, eggs and dairy products as well as wholegrains.
There are many healing applications of essential oils, including emotional therapy. Smells stimulate the fifty thousand nasal receptors inside the nasal cavity connecting to the limbic system, which in turn releases chemicals that affect the brain; promoting feelings of relaxation, calm, love or excitement. Popular oils for stress relief and mental fatigue include lavender, frankincense, rose, chamomile and vanilla. In some cases, inhaling certain scents has been shown to have an instant stress effect - raising mood, reducing anxiety and aiding focus and concentration.

Sand is Nature's Exfoliant
We all long for skin that is polished to perfection, and spend a small fortune searching for the perfect exfoliator. However, why not wait until you arrive beachside and indulge in nature’s very own free exfoliator… sand?
A barefoot walk on the beach is not only hyper-restorative for the soul, but also incredibly beneficial for the soles of the feet.....Afterwards you could sit on the beach, and using handfuls of sand, gently exfoliate your skin using small circular motions. Rinse with plenty of cool water, and make sure that you apply a good moisturiser and sunscreen post scrubbing. You will have the smoothest, glowing skin in no time! Try combining sand with Coconut Oill or Olive Oil for a super indulgent 100% natural body scrub.
