As the layers come off and the social scene comes alive again, The Dating Stylist Kim Lal has some essential tips on how to spring clean your body and mind and get your love life ready for summer!
1. Set your new exercise routine
If you’ve spent your winter binge-eating, drinking and sleeping the days away, then it’s safe to say you’re not going to be looking the best version of yourself – and if you don’t find yourself attractive then how can you expect anyone else to?
Take the time and energy to reinvigorate yourself by engaging in daily exercise to blast those winter kilos away. This not only trims your waistline, but it also gives you more energy, helps you sleep better, improves your mood and libido, and increases self-confidence.
2. Change the stodgy winter diet to spring vegies and fruits
You are what you eat! Eating healthy foods reduces your risk of stroke, cancer and type 2 diabetes. It also helps maintain a healthy weight, gives you more energy, makes you look younger, feel fresher and live longer.
(Secret date tip: When you’re on a date, the food you eat will tell your partner a lot about you. The Dating Stylist recommends being healthy and adventurous when eating on a date.)
3. Preen those feathers
As we shed the thick tights and long-sleeve shirts, it’s often a good idea to give your entire body a good spring clean. A full body exfoliation will get rid of dry skin cells and a wax to remove any hidden hairiness will really prepare you for spring.
4. Sort out your emotional baggage
Spring is definitely a time of new beginnings. If you’re looking for love then it’s time to remove the past from your life. Give your Facebook page a good clean out, delete old photos from your phone and computer, delete old numbers and face the future with a positive frame of mind free from the past.
Are you looking for love now that winter days are behind us?
