New You for the New Year
Welcome 2020! The arrival of the New Year gives us a fresh opportunity to turn the page on the past and start anew. Take some time to take note of your mental and physical well-being and consider some or all of the following suggestions .Fontainebleau has to offer during your stay to kick-start a healthier, new you.
The recommended guideline of calories per day for men and women is 1800 and 1200 per day respectively. Fat should be no more than 20% of the total calories consumed per day. Eat protein at every meal, add vegetables and fruits to all your plates and avoid large portions of carbohydrates. Limit sugar by drinking more water and avoid sugar-laden drinks like soda and fruit juices. Exercise portion control by reducing the serving size.

The body needs sleep to regenerate and recharge. Limiting sleep has been associated with long term health problems like high blood pressure, heart ailments, and depression. The recommended time for most is 7 to 8 hours per day yet some require 9 hours. One should always establish a regular pattern of sleep. Staying in bed late on weekends is not considered to be a healthy habit and may increase stress. Consider a long and warm bath with Epsom salts or a glass of warm milk before bedtime to induce sleep. Keep electronics such as TVs and phones out of the room as light and sounds produced by equipment may impede a restful night’s sleep.
Exercise is the best antidote for stress and low mood as regular participation in fitness activities guarantees the release of “feel good” endorphins in the brain, which help regulate stress and depression. Commit to participating in some form of physical exercise at least 3 times per week for at least 45 minutes. Kick start and visit our state-of-the-art gym. Complimentary fitness classes are offered daily. Find your flow and peace of mind with Pilates, HIIT training, yoga balanced by GreenMonkey and more! Participating in a group fitness class or a personal training session will help you break a sweat. The Gym at Fontainebleau can develop a customized program specifically for you to take home.

Turn your refreshing beach vacation up a notch on the wellness scale at Lapis, the spa at Fontainebleau. Nothing says relax like a little pampering post-workout. Unwind with signature Lapis specialty treatments, luxurious amenities and Ritual Water Journeys. Loosen tense muscles with a Deep Massage with CBD and Lavender or a Traditional Swedish Massage and enjoy a Triple Cleanse Facial to renew post-holiday or indulge with a manicure and pedicure at Lapis Salon.
Having the aura of physical beauty or attraction is a great boost to morale and sense of wellbeing and is associated with professional and social success. Increase your grooming habits as part of your goals for a new and prosperous 2020. Wash your face daily in the morning and evening before going to bed with a mild cleanser avoiding harsh soaps or liquids. Apply a lightweight, waterbased lotion to protect skin from dehydration. Use sun protection liberally to avoid damage from the sun’s UV rays. Keep elbows, knees, and hands soft by applying a cream or lotion with glycerin or jojoba oil. Buy that new dress or suit you’ve been eyeing. Embracing your personal style can increase your confidence in a major way. Visit Ida and Harry or any of The Shops at Fontainebleau for style inspiration. More importantly, if you feel good on the inside, it radiates on the outside.
