Diet & Exercise
Planning ahead for the big day brings
excitement and joy, but for most couples it also brings some anxiety.
Couples want to look and feel their best and as is with all the details
of their wedding this too takes forethought and planning.
Almost every bride wants to lose some weight
or trim down in a particular area for her wedding day. Experts
steadfastly recommend that no crash diets be undertaken, however. Not
only can they play havoc with dress fittings, but they can also result
in fatigue, dizziness and even nausea - all undesirable (as well as
unpredictable!) the day of the wedding.
Controlled weight loss can be accomplished through a combination of
calorie reduction and exercise. The best place to start is with a
physician. Once you have talked to your doctor you can begin to consider
the countless choices available. Many weight loss programs provide
sensible menu plans along with, exercise, encouragement, information and
counseling. Nutritionists and exercise professionals can also be
helpful. Today, options for exercise include a variety of great fitness
centers, health clubs, gyms, specialized yoga, martial arts, aerobic and
dance classes, not to mention local parks or even your own home. Without
a doubt the most successful diets and exercise plans are started months
in advance and can lead to healthy habits for a lifetime.
A headache, neck ache, or
backache can leave you feeling tired and worn down. Today many men and
women are turning to chiropractic care to relieve these common though
irritating conditions. Massages have also gained popularity as more
people look to relieve their daily tensions and stress. Day spas have
opened their doors to provide a haven from the cares of the world. These
one-stop relaxation spots may offer services including spa treatments,
facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and more. Day spas are not only
popular for brides, they also provide a great way for her attendants to
get together, relax and be pampered for a fun shower or pre-wedding
Today more than ever, we see numerous commercials and
products geared at whiter teeth. Many dental professionals are now
specializing in satisfying this market with special treatments aimed at
whitening and brightening smiles. Along with whiter teeth, they are also
providing ways to straighten and perform aesthetic services without the
traditional unsightly braces or surgery.
