This month we’re starting afresh

Fitter, healthier, more organised? It’s time for some resolutions!

After a sinfully indulgent festive season, first up on our list of priorities is a health kick. We’ll be detoxing with Detox Delight, which is offering seven days for the price of five (from Dh1,950) with the added bonus of free flu-fighting shots.

Once we’ve detoxed, we’ll be carrying on our healthy eating with the new Cleanse meal programme from Right Bite, designed to offer really easy clean eating with superfoods, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. A 14-day package will set us back Dh2,700.

To ensure we start the year on a fit foot, we’ll be signing up with Fittpass (, a new flexible way to access fitness facilities around the city. From one-day passes to 12-month memberships, Fittpass means we can choose where we want to exercise and when, without having to commit to a full membership each time.

Once we’ve got our bodies on the right track we’ll be doing the same with our minds. Did you know just 30 minutes of practising mindfulness each day can reduce stress, improve your self-esteem and give you greater energy and enthusiasm for life? Sign us up for a mindfulness programme at The LightHouse Arabia pronto!

And, of course, we’re resolving to make sure we take time out for ourselves. There’s a new Ladies’ Night every Monday from 5pm at Talise Ottoman Spa, where Dh555 will get us a 45-minute hammam, 30-minute back massage and 30-minute head massage, along with refreshments. Bliss!
