Fitness: How To Sustainably Begin The New Year

The old ‘new year, new me’ phrase puts a lot of pressure on the first few weeks back. The impulse or expectation to join a running club, join the latest fad diet, or steer a new direction in your life can leave us feeling a little overwhelmed. This year let’s be mindful and sustainable in our goals, mindful of ourselves and mindful of the planet.

In the last few years, we have lived in a world of uncertainty and stress, so taking time for yourself and looking after your health and well-being has never been more important. As we look towards the new year and begin setting goals we must remember to take things slow.

We understand after a well-deserved break and time of indulgence, we may be looking for ways to gently bring back movement and self-care into our world. At Wearth, we champion sustainability at every corner, including when it’s time to get back into your health and well-being.

This year, when you are ready to re-join the yoga mat or are looking for a boost of vegan health, we’ve got you covered.

Yellow swim trunks

Beautifully bright, these yellow recycled swim trunks are the ultimate new year get up. Whether you are in the icy open waters of the UK or a heated pool, swimming is a great way to exercise your body without adding impact and stress to your joints. Swimming has never been more popular, especially during the pandemic. Swimming has many health and well-being benefits. So this new year, swim in style with Mangata London’s eco-friendly and sustainable swimming trunks.
