Top Tips for a Healthy New YearLike2

Dating back to 1910 with art nouveau style and decoration, the family-owned Grand Hotel Tremezzo commands one of the most enchanting positions on Lake Como with spectacular panoramic views of both the town of Bellagio, the Riviera delle Azalee and the stunning Grigne Mountains. The historic hotel has 90 rooms and suites, each of which offers guests breathtaking views of the lake or the hotel’s century-old 20,000-sqm park and gardens. The hotel has three swimming pools: Water on the Water, a floating pool in front of the private beach; Flowers Pool, a pool surrounded by its own delightful private gardens; and the indoor T Spa Infinity Pool. They have also partnered with ESPA so guests may indulge in a new and chic spa experience, while a “hidden” T Spa Suite is offered to those looking to experience a whole new private-spa experience.

The start of a new year is one where many are angling to follow a healthier path. But take it from Chiaro Campo, spa manager of the award-winning T Spa at Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como, Italy: acting towards a 2017 full of happiness and well-being doesn’t have to be an arduous journey. From the hotel’s acclaimed spa – this year alone T Spa has been the winner of the Tatler Spa Award – Glamorous Getaway; the Luxury Spa Award; the Best of the Best Spa – Virtuoso Awards; and the Wellness Travel Award Spa Finder – Best Hidden Gem – she shares 10 simple, enjoyable steps to promote well-being for the next 12 months and beyond.

 

Top Tips for a Healthy and Pampered New Year

1. Wake up slowly
Always eat within an hour of waking up, otherwise your body will become stressed. Upon awakening, drink one glass of water with a fresh squeeze of lemon or lime – of which the health benefits have been known for centuries – and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

2. Preparation makes perfect
Like many other achievements in life, the real secret to healthy, beautiful skin lies in perfect preparation: deep cleansing and exfoliation. Get into the habit of preparing an exfoliator of sea salt and olive oil. Also give your skin space to breathe to reveal its inner radiance, and make it ready for quenching with a nourishing moisturiser.

3. The one-minute body trick
Every morning, dry body-brush yourself – this will significantly improve tone, help banish cellulite and boost cell renewal. Start at your feet and brush in light sweeps in the direction of your heart. Your skin tone will thank you!

4. Be Lazy in the bath
A bath will help rejuvenate the body and detox from the effects of a hectic lifestyle. Choose the extraordinarily pure ESPA aromatherapeutic bath oil and add two cups to a warm bath, then immerse yourself, deeply inhale the aroma, and relax for 20 minutes up to three times a week. The bath oil works as hard to restore equilibrium to the mind as it does to treat the body. Caution: It can be seriously addictive!

5. Eat organically
Try to eat only organic as it means zero chemicals to toxify your body. At the very least choose clean, lean foods and drinks as much as possible. Whether you’re shopping for food or selecting from a menu, always go for the cleanest, most natural-looking food or meal available. When in doubt, eat fish and greens.

6. The darker, the better
Fruits and vegetables are all good for you but as a general rule the darker produce, such as kale and spinach, the better. Dark fruits tend to have thinner skin, so they produce more antioxidants to protect themselves from the sun. Next time you have a sweet craving, eat some in-season thin-skinned fruit, such as berries, apples, pears, cherries or green grapes.

7. Ten-minutes exercise
Regular exercise helps to promote blood flow and increase lean muscle mass. And the more lean muscle mass you have, the less fat/cellulite you will have. I recommend exercising at least three times a week.

8. Make beauty a pleasure
Why should the pursuit of the body beautiful be all self-sacrifice and denial? Skincare should be a pleasure and never a chore. Create your ideal skincare routine with heavenly aromas and lovely textures that will appeal to all your senses – so you’ll love it, every day

9. Skin miracles
We all have times when our skin isn’t at its best; times when special treatments are required. For the best results at Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s T Spa, try the ESPA Skin Radiance Facial, which revitalises tired skin, giving a noticeably brighter and naturally radiant appearance. For the body, I recommend the ESPA Lift & Firm Hip & Thigh treatment, a highly effective, stimulating treatment to target cellulite, fluid retention and uneven skin texture. A course of six treatments is recommended. If you’re unable to get to Lake Como, look for something similar at your usual spa.

10. Prepare to sparkle
Eyes have tales to hide and truths to tell and are always features of rare beauty, so ensure yours look clear, refreshed, bright and endlessly cared for. Achieve this through product solutions such as ESPA Stage Release Eye Moisturiser, which uses natural encapsulation technology to deliver intelligent microspheres of powerful actives over eight hours to target the appearance of lines and wrinkles, whilst hydrating, brightening and safeguarding firmness and elasticity.

Top tip:
It’s all about a happy life. There are no crazy rules, no food-measuring, no calorie-counting. Be kind to yourself and I’ll promise you, this works!

  • Feeling a little pink today because I took a day off work and doing some packing for an exciting trip ahead! 
I pack a week before my trip 🙄... is anyone the same?
  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!
