Spring is coming at last – so get ready to cleanse your mind, rid yourself of ingrained habits, and put some bounce back into your routine with these easy steps.
The prep: Kick start your morning with the energising peppermint and spearmint ELEMIS Sharp Shower Body Wash.
+ The kit: Look good, feel great in Adidas’ Superstar perforated suede sneakers in a chic, neutral colour palette, £60 (www.net-a-porter.com)
+ The activity: Half an hour to an hour of power walking. Intersperse three minutes of accelerated pace every so often to add a more intense, interval-like workout.
+ The download: The Headspace App. Emma Watson thinks it’s ‘genius’ – and who are we to disagree? Like a personal trainer for the mind, it’ll guide you towards having greater control over your thoughts, stress levels and emotions. The Take10 introductory programme is free (iTunes/Google Play).
+ The snack: Vitamin B1 is known as the ‘morale vitamin’ for its mood-boosting benefits. So finish that walk with a handful of pistachios, macadamia nuts, pecans or sunflower seeds to get your fix.
= A mental spring clean with a new outlook on life.
