Wedding planning is insanely stressful. There is so much to think about and do. You’ll have to do lists as long as your arm and wedding planning will consume your free time for months, if not years before the big day. All this stress means it’s much easier to pick up illnesses. The last thing you want in the run up to your beautiful beach wedding is to pick up a cold or something worse. Here are the best ways to look after yourself and ensure you are in the best of health when the day arrives.
Get Lots of Sleep
Losing sleep is common in the run up to a wedding. You’ll be worried, nervous, and excited all at the same time, which can make it difficult to relax and unwind enough to get any rest. But, it’s important that you do. Try cutting caffeine, taking a hot bath before bed, and getting a little exercise.
Have a Check up
It’s a good idea to get regular check-ups at your GP whatever your health condition. Even more so on the run up to a big event such as a wedding. Book an appointment in the months before to make sure there is nothing to worry about.
Eating a healthy diet on the run up to your wedding is essential. Even if you aren’t trying to lose weight, eating well will ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need to stay healthy, boost your immune system and fight off any minor bugs.
If you are interested in learning more about how your diet can affect your health consider studying an online DNP program. An online doctor of nursing degree could lead to an exciting career as a nurse manager once you have settled into married life, as well as teaching you how to look after your health.
You may feel like you haven’t got the time to exercise when you’ve got so much to do. But getting a little exercise every day will reduce your stress levels, help you sleep, boost your circulation and immune system, increase your confidence, improve your skin tone and generally make you feel happier. With all those benefits, can you afford not to?
Don’t Over Do it
You know your body better than anyone else. Listen to it and understand it’s warnings. As soon as you start to feel tired or under the weather, get some extra rest. Treat yourself to a pamper day, have a lie in or an early night, and try to forget the wedding for a while. Spend a little time doing things that are just for you. Remember, your wedding will be perfect, it will all come together in the end, and all your family and friends are there to help if you need it. You just have to ask.
Looking after yourself means you won’t lose precious time in the build-up to your wedding or see your day spoiled by not feeling your best. If you have any concerns at all about your health, see your GP straight away.
