Society as a whole is more attuned to the idea of physical and mental wellness than ever before. Everywhere we go we see guidance on taking exercise, getting plenty of fresh air, and prioritising self-care. And, although it is not always easy, most of us have become well-versed at incorporating wellbeing practices into our daily schedule.

However, what should we do when a lunchtime walk or long bubble bath just won’t cut it anymore? For those times when your wellness routine needs a boost, try these luxury self-care ideas to promote your mental and bodily wellbeing in 2023.

Join a high-end gym

Not all gyms are made the same. If you are getting bored of your current establishment, you may find new levels of joy at a high-end gym.

In addition to excellent instruction and the best exercise equipment, at a luxury gym you can also cleanse your pores and clear your mind in a sauna or steam room. Most high-end gyms also have a swimming pool and Jacuzzi area, providing you with varied exercise options to keep you on track with your fitness goals.

When starting at a new gym, make sure to do any induction run-throughs that are on offer. Should you get injured while on-site you could investigate compensation, but it is essential to minimise risks during your workouts for the sake of your mental and physical health.

Head to the spa

As nice as a sauna and steam room is in the gym, it is no alternative to a fully-fledged spa.

Spa treatments such as massages and facials are great boosts to mental health as they help to improve blood circulation which can lead to better sleep and enhanced energy levels.

Manicures and pedicures are also a fantastic way to promote wellness. Regularly treating your nails and the fragile skin on your hands and feet is a great way to ensure the physical health of the extremities of your body. Mani-pedis are also an activity that you can do with loved ones which will help to lift your spirits emotionally as well.

Go on a nature retreat

Ever since the long periods of indoor isolation that were part and parcel of living through the pandemic, we have come to appreciate more than ever the healing power of nature.

Spending time outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of urban life is a great way to recentre yourself when you are feeling overwhelmed. There is something so calming about being surrounded by greenery, and studies have shown that even the sound of nature is soothing to people. And, on a physical level, it is beneficial to be immersed in oxygen and exposed to plenty of vitamin D.

There are lots of specialised retreats both here and abroad where you can spend time in total dedication to being in the wild. You can also use the opportunity to focus on your particular interests, for example yoga and meditation, or you could even try your hand at a silent retreat.

So, there you have it. When you start to hit a wall with your self-care in 2023, try these luxury wellness trips to keep your mental and physical wellbeing on track.
