5 Wellness & Grooming Habits

There’s a theory that it takes 21 days to create a new habit, whether it’s using a sunscreen 365 and not just in the summertime, working out in the mornings before work or carving out a little extra time for selfcare that doesn’t include a ball game and a beer. That said, some habits are more seemingly easy to adopt, especially when their feel-good benefits outweigh the effort, like these five must-try ones Sunlighten mPulse says you should build into your existing routine. Find out why…

Habit 1: Promote Good Hair and Scalp Health
Scalp care is akin to skin care, believe the experts at Sunlighten mPulse. And so, in keeping with that thinking, it only makes sense that an infrared sauna is as great for your skin as it is also beneficial to your scalp. According to Sunlighten mPulse, the infared sauna is said to be great for building collagen, as collagen and elastin is said to increase after exposure to infrared heat.

Habit 2: Travel for Wellness
Get back into travel is back. According to the experts at Sunlighten mPulse, leisure is currently being redefined through a wellness lens. Whether it’s engaging with nature through physical outdoor activities or adventure or focusing on preventative health, tired muscles recover best at a spa. Try the Cliff House in Maine or Ibiza’s Six Senses for both stimulating activities along with healing rejuvenation treatments.

Habit 3: Bring the Spa and Self-Care Home
Therapeutic spaces, wellness rooms or nooks are in demand, say the experts at Sunlighten mPulse with consumers creating more intentional, designated sanctuaries for active recovery, relaxation and improving mental and physical wellness. Some are even predicting that these types of spaces are quickly replacing the “home gym.” For smaller-space dwellers, the Sunlighten portable Solo System, a double-dome unit, can be easily folded up, stored in a closet, and can fit into a multi-use space (here is someone who has one in their 800 square foot apartment).  And for larger areas such as wellness rooms, a custom sauna or cabin is popular option. Additionally, lighting a candle and soaking in an Epsom salt bath can do wonders for the body and mind.

Habit 4: Embrace the Light
Did you know that light and colour have a direct correlation to mood? So with a decrease in sunlight and the days remaining darker for longer, it makes sense that getting outside while the sun shines is a great way to eliminate the blahs. Just don’t forget to apply an even layer of SPF across your face and other exposed areas of skin. Plus, if you’re feeling daring, seek out magenta, Pantone’s colour of the year, as it’s as close as you’ll get to Violet the colour that the experts at Sunlighten mPulse claim can balance the 7th/crown chakra to connect the mind-body with a higher power. This high energy state is believed to stimulate the pituitary gland to regulate serotonin and reduce depression and anxiety—and can also help regulate sleep to improve energy and reduce effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Habit 5: Try Sauna-ing To-Go
You may have heard that Justin Beiber and Zac Brown use an infrared sauna while on tour, to improve their health and wellness. Tim McGraw, too, who according to Sunlighten mPulse has an infrared sauna installed in his RV/mobile gym for when he is on the road and one in his at-home gym. While obviously a personal choice, professionals at the Mayo Clinic are giving saunas a thumbs up for their potential to detoxify, relieve pain and reduce muscle tension in the body.
