Our Founder's Health Tips
With the start of the new year, we're all looking for new year's resolutions that we will actually be able to keep, and at Medeau, we're looking for ones that will deliver the biggest impact.
I've been thinking a lot about how to make healthier choices in 2022, and wanted to recommend five easy switches to make.
Bulletproof Coffee has helped me to be more alert and focused, even after being up with my 3-month old during the night. There is no caffeine crash and the healthy fats are a satisfying way to start your day, and it's delicious! However, instead of using a blender, I use a handheld milk frother.
The Power of Nature
I like to make sure that I go for a 20-minute walk each day in the park or the forest. I find it is the best way to clear my head and feel energised. I'm a great believer in the power of nature and feel that it should never be underestimated. I try to get out in the middle of the day so that I can get a break from sitting at my desk, but it will be beneficial whenever you can fit this into your routine.
I take three essential supplements. The first is Magnesium, in my opinion, the most underrated supplement. It is helping me fight those January blues - it's a mood booster that also has anti-inflammatory benefits. It's also an absolute must for me to enable a good night's sleep. The second is Vitamin C plus Lactoferrin. I discovered this at Onolla - and I'm also hoping that it will keep my immune system firing on all cylinders during the winter months. The last is Vitamin D, which helps boost your immune system, mood and protect against chronic disease.
Probably the most fun thing you can swap this January is to buy a clean-burning candle for your home. I find that having a beautiful candle burning really helps boost my mood. My recommendation would be a Nette candle, I recently purchased one and I've found that it's a mood enhancer, as well as smelling amazing.
A beauty swap I would recommend would be to buy a more natural foundation. My favourite is from Tropic, and I've just re-ordered one myself. If you're someone who wears foundation every day, it would be good to use a brand that you know you can trust the ingredients to be safe to use.
And of course, a few spritzes of a non-toxic fragrance like Medeau compliments all the healthier choices above!
I'd love to know about the healthier choices that you're making this January.
