5 Tips to Holistic Wellness: On Holiday and At Home

June 20, 2018
Holistic Wellness and Yoga Maldives

In a constantly changing and challenging world, it’s increasingly difficult to live authentically, peacefully and happy. Increasing numbers of burnout and other stress symptoms are alarming. As Renate Hermes, certified Wellness & Transformation Coach, Group Spa Director and Co-Owner of Duniye Spa Group Maldives, says:

 

“Life is not a straight line, but a wonderful meandering discovery of that powerful place within”

 

What a better place to be to start that peaceful discovery than in our beautiful islands.

Time away, to an Island far away from the busy life does wonders for the soul, and so does day-to-day activities that enhance mindfulness such as yoga and meditation. Focusing on Wellness and the various ways to reconnect with yourself, the present moment and simple techniques to reinvigorate your sense of wonder, Crown & Champa Resorts and the Duniye Spa Group offer 5 Tips to Holistic Wellness while on holiday, as well as in the comfort of your own home and daily routine.

 

Kuredu Water Bottles

 

Tip #5: Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is important in maintaining your wellbeing on a day-to-day level. 70% of the body is made up of water, which keeps the muscles and joints functioning, the brain protected, boosts your immune health, digestion, and even mood.

 

On Holiday

Each of the Crown & Champa Resorts offers respective amounts of complimentary water in reusable glass bottles per day, per room to keep you hydrated while on holiday in the Maldives. Purchase a unique and branded water bottle from the Gift Shops to carry with you around the Island.

At Home

Set a goal for your daily amount of water intake and stick to it throughout the day, be it at the office with a special water bottle or at home, in between meals and snacks. Setting reminders or placing the water bottle where most visible can help keep you on track and hydrated each day.

 

Tropical Island Retreat Maldives

 

Tip #4: Take Time to Unplug

“Unplugging” from the Internet promotes, more than most in this electronic-era, mindfulness of the present moment. It allows you to pause, take in life as it happens and importantly, helps you develop an acute awareness of your own thoughts and feelings.

 

On Holiday

Some of our Resorts actively promote “unplugging” to appreciate the idyllic destination, such as no-WiFi Zones that allow guests to interact in person. Other ways include a variety of Duniye Spa treatments and rituals, specifically designed to reconnect your body, mind and soul, including Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and Sound Healing.

At Home

Choose a specific time and duration of the day to intentionally unplug and put away all electronic devices. This could be an hour before you start your day, allowing you to set the tone for your day or an hour before you sleep, allowing you to recap on your day, both promoting mindfulness.

 

Healthy Eating Maldives

 

Tip #3: Mind What You Eat

Minding what you eat goes beyond diets. It includes learning the origin of the produce you eat, as well as really tasting the various flavor combinations in a meal. This promotes an awareness of your body and the “fuel” it needs to function in a busy world while highlighting what to increase or decrease.

 

On Holiday

Our Resorts feature organic gardens, where fresh produce is grown and incorporated into the meals served at Buffets and a la carte Restaurants. Guests can participate in an Island Tour to learn how the produce is grown and harvested at each Resort. For specifically vegetarian and gluten-free preferences, the Resorts offer clearly marked stations and labels with delicious cuisine to select from.

At Home

Keep an eye on your organic and non-organic produce, as well as your processed and non-processed goods. Try to include as much plants to meals as possible, as these contain an array of enzymes, vitamins and minerals. A little known secret is the benefits of the Indian herb, Turmeric. Used as a supplement, researchers have found that Turmeric can help restore memory, decrease inflammation and lower blood pressure among many other benefits.

 

Fun things to do in Maldives

 

Tip #2: Move the Body Often

Sitting at your desk all day can decrease your blood flow and energy levels, cause back and hip problems and lowers the production of healthy antioxidants. Exercise, including regular stretching, promotes detoxification, oxygenates your cells and keeps your body alive.

 

On Holiday

Whether you prefer a stroll around the Island after meals, a workout with a view, or adventure sports, Crown & Champa Resorts offers a variety of activities to keep your body alive, including Nature Walks, Bicycle Rentals, fantastic Snorkeling and Diving, as well as Water Sports and fully equipped Fitness Centers.

At Home

Opt for a walk around the office building during your lunch break, or choose the staircase instead of the elevator to keep your body moving. The brief walks to your colleagues’ desk across the hall are just as helpful in keeping your body oxygenated and blood circulation flowing.

 

 

Tip #1: Finding a Healthy Balance

The key to incorporating these for holistic wellness is to find the ideal balance for your lifestyle and wellness needs. Be it at home or on a well-deserved holiday, a healthy balance promotes inner and outer wellbeing, mindfulness, healthier relationships with loved ones and productivity.

 

On Holiday

Striking the right balance on holiday includes choosing the right holiday package for your needs. Our Resorts offer options for a seamless tropical vacation in paradise such as the Full Board and All Inclusive Plus plans to cater to your requirements, where the All Inclusive Plus Plan includes a range of activities to enjoy throughout your stay and keep you active. Still, the Islands certainly provide the ideal atmosphere to relax and unwind, while you take in nature at it’s best.

At Home

With mindfulness and an awareness of what your body, mind and soul needs as key ingredients, day-to-day tasks can be prioritized, filtered to provide more meaning and wellness. This includes social interactions, work projects; personal health and fitness routines; and meaningful relationships with loved ones.
