Whether it's yoga, Pilates, strength training, or cardio, finding activities that you enjoy and that challenge your body is key to staying active and maintaining a healthy weight.

With spring on its way, it’s never been a better time to get out there and pursue an activity you love.

Be sure not to push yourself too hard and remember that balance and consistency is key!

Relax and Restore

Getting a good night’s rest is the starting point for good health habits, especially finding a hormonal balance. Magnesium, recognised for its stress-alleviating properties, muscle function support, and contribution to bone health is also thought to aid sleep. Our meticulously formulated Epigenar Liposomal Magnesium harnesses the benefits this vitamin, using a liposomal delivery system to ensure optimal absorption, making this a trusted choice for promoting overall wellness and achieving a restful night's sleep. Embrace the solution to bid farewell to fatigue and welcome a revitalised lifestyle with confidence.

Still can’t sleep? The main thing to remember is to not worry too much! If you’re having a difficult night, the key is to relax, maybe take a moment away from your bedroom for a drink or a light snack (fruit or toast is good) and take a deep breath. You’ll sleep when your body is ready, no pressure.

Sleep hygiene is crucial for preparing your mind and body to “power-off”. This can include keeping screen-time to a minimum in the hours leading up to lights-out time, not having a tv in your bedroom and making this a sleep-only sanctuary. Eating your evening meal earlier and forgoing afternoon caffeine may also make a difference.

If you’re having long-term sleep issues such as insomnia, it may be best to consult a healthcare professional.

You deserve to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day!
