A FRESH 2022

January 14, 2022

We’re feelin’ 2022! Take a fresh approach to your daily routine so you can feel good during these colder, less active months. Take the time to indulge in self-care, enjoy a workout, update your closet with chic loungewear and eat a nurturing meal so you can bring out the best version of yourself.

Nurture Your Body and Mind

Finding an exercise outlet that is both enjoyable and sustainable for your lifestyle is the key to success. If your workout is something you truly take pleasure in, you have a better chance of sticking with it for the long run! The Shoppes has many options for exploring a new fitness routine that you will love and commit to. 

Explore a rewarding exercise method for both body and mind with Pilates. A challenging but low-impact workout, it aligns the body and increases core strength and posture. It also has been known to decrease stress, enhance body awareness, and even boost your immunity due to improved circulation. At Club Pilates, you will get focused attention from class instructors in order to learn how to use the machines correctly and get the most out of your workout.

If an exhilarating, action-packed workout with a great playlist is more your style, you will love the classes at CycleBar. Let the music carry you through a ride that will leave you feeling invigorated and full of those good endorphins. No matter where you are in your fitness journey, their class experience promises to calm your mind, elevate your mood and revive your senses.

If your happiest workout experience lies in getting outside, an Apple Watch from AT&T will track your stats and let you know just how good of a workout you’re getting on that scenic walk or run.

Get Glowing From The Inside Out

This year, our beauty regimen is focused on nourishing our bodies from the inside out. Stay glowing all winter with essential supplements, a proper sleep schedule, and hydrated, healthy skin. 

At bluemercury, find luxury supplements like The Super Elixir, which is a daily health supplement formulated using a combination of naturally derived ingredients including whole foods, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and probiotics to benefit all stages of life and well-being.

Good sleep is the secret to good health year round. A satin eye mask and opalite gua sha set from Sephora is the perfect addition to your nighttime routine and will help you unwind at the end of a busy day. The soft satin eye mask blocks light while being lightweight, breathable, and soothing to the skin. The crescent-moon-shaped opalite gua sha is believed to help reenergize the skin. Facial massaging is believed to support and improve the appearance of the skin, and you can refridgerate the stone for an extra cooling and de-puffing effect.

Ensure that your skin stays hydrated and plump during the colder months with a HydraFacial at Vibrance MedSpa. HydraFacial MD is a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, painless extractions and a special delivery of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides. It will remove dead skin cells, hydrate and brighten your skin, and flush toxins from beneath your skin

Fuel Your Body

It’s natural to want to eat healthier after the holiday season, but instead of trying a fad diet, we’re taking a realistic approach to eating better with lightened up versions of our favorite dishes, along with some home cooking with the help of Trader Joe’s.

At Panera Bread, swap the bread bowl for a nutrient packed grain bowl. Their Mediterranean Bowl is filled with cilantro lime brown rice and quinoa, arugula, red grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, diced cucumbers, hummus, lemon tahini dressing, feta crumbles and Greek yogurt for ultimate flavor in a meal you can feel good about eating. 

Get the burrito flavor you crave in a lighter, healthier salad version at Qdoba. Treat yourself to all your usual favorite toppings, just omit the cheese and sour cream! We love how the fajita veggies add tons of flavor with way less calories.

Of course, one of the best ways to fuel your body properly is with a hearty home cooked meal. Find 

ingredients to make your time in the kitchen quicker and easier at Trader Joe’s. Their Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde recipe is the warm hug you need at the end of a cold winter day. All it takes is a few fresh ingredients thrown together with some of Trader Joe’s frozen staples.

Comfy Chic

As we hunker down for the colder months, it’s time to up your loungewear game! The Shoppes has essentials that will keep you looking chic whether you’re working from your home office or are out running errands. A cozy microfleece sweat set from GAP will look put together but feel like you’re wearing cozy pajamas. If you’re torn between burrowing under a blanket or going out on the town, a sherpa jacket from Banana Republic is the best of both worlds. And if you’re planning to go for a brisk winter walk and then grocery shopping, the On The Move Spacedye Pullover from Talbots is the perfect piece to get it all done.
