We know it’s not always easy to stick to your goals. When it’s cold and gloomy, and the sofa is calling your name, the temptation to let things slide may be hard to resist. That’s why we’ve created our Wellness Calendar!
So, how can you tap into our wealth of new year wellness? Just follow us on Instagram at @mindbodyuk to get your daily dose of motivation. With fresh ideas, beauty tips and healthy hints for every day of the month, it could be just what you need to keep your goals on track. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ve got in store!
Whether you’re sitting in traffic or waiting for the kettle to boil, use every spare moment to do something good for your mind and body—like doing a set of squats or listening to a podcast.
Wellness isn’t just a trend. From the diet that makes you feel amazing to the workouts you can’t wait to do, find what ignites your soul.
Yoga inversions (like headstands) shift your energy, allowing thoughts to fall away and creating headspace. On the mat or at mediation, try different types of movement that can benefit every element of your well-being—and make you stronger mentally and physically.

Things are weird. Times are changing. It seems like just when we’re starting to get a grip, there’s another surprise. When it comes to beauty, we've had to adapt on our own due to salon closures, keep an eye on preparations and protocol changes during those closures, try to know what we’re doing before booking an appointment once they reopened, and maybe even brave the journey back to the salon. Whether you live in a place where salons are open, you’ve experienced a second shutdown, or you straight up haven’t had a haircut since March, we can all probably agree that we’re expecting some differences in the salon and spa world thanks to COVID.
We wanted to gauge how everyone is thinking and feeling about all this, so we put out a poll on our Instagram, asking you all what you expect from beauty salons right now.
Here’s what you had to say...
53% of you have returned to the hair salon by now, while 47% of you have not. This makes sense, because every area of the country is different when it comes to cases, closures, and mandates, and every person is different when it comes to risk and safety.
While many hair salons have begun operating outdoors due to government regulations, 58% of you said you’re fine with getting your haircut indoors, while the other 42% are more comfortable keeping it outside.
58% of you said you’d rather go to your hair salon than have your stylist come to you. I get it, home is a safe space, probably shouldn’t let any outsiders in.
69% of you said you’re “totally!” going to tip more for services once you start receiving them again. During this time without our stylists and aestheticians, I think we all realized how much we need them and appreciate them, and many of us are willing to show them a little extra gratitude to make up for the time we spent apart.
But, most of you aren’t. 56% of you said you have not cut or colored your own or a friend’s hair, because it was too risky, while the other 44% just “had to!”
Only 29% of you have returned to nail salons, while the rest are sticking to at-home manicures. Maybe we’re all just getting really good at it? But probably, it’s because a lot of them are still closed down, or because it’s a little more difficult to get a pedicure outdoors (we need our massage chairs!).
Our last poll question asked about what differences you’ve all noticed when heading back to the salon, and you all had a lot to say...
It’s a beautiful thing to see how the salon and spa community has come together, taken precautions, and adjustments, all so they can continue to help us look and feel our best. If you haven’t spoken to your stylist lately (or even if you have), don’t forget to shoot them a thank you and let them know you appreciate them.
