5 Tips for a healthy 2017

If the third week of January has seen you already stumble in your New Year’s resolution to get fit and healthy for 2017, do not despair – there is lots of help and inspiration available at Telford Shopping Centre to get back on track.

You are what you eat

Health food specialists Holland and Barrett still have their ‘buy one get one for a penny’ offer available on mix and match foods and supplements including Teatox packs, Manuka honey and super seeds and nuts.

Marks and Spencer has a brilliant range of ‘Eat Well’ foods to tempt the tastebuds. These healthy, balanced choices have been created with everyday nutrition in mind, with colourful and inspiring ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and all those snacking moments in between.

Face the future

Too many hours indoors can leave your skin feeling dry and dull, but many products are now specially formulated to brighten and treat your winter-ravaged face, hair and hands.

Pop into Debenhams, House of Fraser, Boots or The Body Shop for advice on updating your skin care routine.

Dress for success

Give your wardrobe a workout with some gorgeous new fitness clothing and inspire yourself to keep to your new exercise routine.

As well as the specialist sports retailers – JD Sports, Sports Direct and Trespass – many of our top fashion outlets have introduced their own ranges of leisure and fitness clothing.

We love Next’s bright patterned leggings, funky footwear from tReds, and New Look’s cool crop tops.

All kitted out

We are blessed with a fine range of sporting goods stores within the Centre, so whether you are looking for a yoga mat, kettle bells or even a running machine, you will find all you need for fitness.

If you’re thinking of getting on your bike, Argos stocks cycles for every member of the family as well as a wide range fitness trackers and wearable tech.

Meanwhile Sports Direct is the place to head for gym balls, skipping ropes, weights and dumbbells. They also have a massive selection of cross trainers, home gyms and rowing machines available for home delivery.

Get out and get moving

Don’t forget, Telford Town Park offers 162 hectares of fantastic open space adjacent to Telford Shopping Centre. 

Scientists believe that walking in woodland has great health benefits – reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and helping you to get in shape.

So why not make the most of Telford’s natural outdoor gym to take time out from the bustle of everyday life and put your best foot forward for the rest of 2017?
