Give yourself a mental vacation through meditation.
Most people’s lives are hectic enough without the added workload of planning a wedding. Counteract the frenetic pace by making time to meditate. “This can be done anytime, anywhere, for as little as five minutes a day,” says Isabel Beltran, yoga instructor. Need structure? Try a hatha yoga class which is great for beginners. Looking for something more solitary? Try floatation therapy in a sensory deprivation tank. Harvard studies show meditation decreases stress, anxiety and insomnia.
Still find yourself feeling run down? Try an IV treatment.
At the first sign you might be getting sick, consider an IV treatment. The sooner you act, the better chance your body has to fight off a bug before it settles in. I waited until day three of my cold to do a treatment and the physician explained it wouldn’t totally cure me, but it’d keep me from getting worse. “The extra fluids take care of the dehydration that can accompany illness,” says Dr. Jack Dybis, general/trauma surgeon and co-founder of IVme. “The vitamins, minerals and elements will boost your natural immunity, and give a needed increase in energy. If you’re already sick, the treatment won’t make you feel 100%, but it will get you back on your feet and feeling good enough to get through your wedding with minimal discomfort.”
