EXERCISE

Movement is essential for good circulation, which carries nutrients and oxygen to feed your skin – the health of your skin is completely dependent on the nutrients it receives this way. Exercise also improves the functioning of the immune system, energy levels and sleep quality. It also helps manage stress, which is your skin’s worst enemy. Result: a radiant glow!

You can alternate between 30 minutes run or 45 minutes brisk walk and 1-hour strength training or yoga.

100 Breath Meditation

(8-10 minutes)

This meditation and mudra (hand gesture) combination is beneficial for both physical and mental health. Benefits include focusing the mind, improving energy flow, promoting good sleep, reducing stress and restoring a sense of balance. It also helps us to feel more present, allowing you to enjoy your big day to the full, with composure and without distraction.

Sequence

  1. Sit crossed legged with hands resting on your thighs, elbows bent, arms relaxed. Relax and take a few deep breaths in and out.
  2. Position your hands in Gyan mudra (picture 1). The tip of your thumb should be touching the tip of your index finger and the other three fingers are stretched out, palms facing upwards.
  3. Count 30 breaths in this posture.
  4. Keep both hands in Gyan mudra, but move your right hand in front of your chest, with the little finger facing outwards, the left remains resting on your left thigh. Count 30 more breaths here.
  5. Change hands and repeat with the left hand in front of your chest for 30 further breaths.
  6. Then place both hands in front of your chest, with your two index fingers pointing upwards, thumbs crossed over each other and the other three fingers folded (picture 2). Count 5 breaths here.
  7. Finally, put both hands together in prayer position in front of your chest and count 5 last breaths.
  8. Keep your eyes closed for a few more breaths, enjoy the sense of tranquillity and then gently open.
