Five Easy Ways to Lose Weight

These days it seems that everyone is trying to lose weight, and many people struggle with weight issues their whole lives. Negative body image, especially for women, is one of the most common causes of low self-esteem in this country. Unfortunately, low self-esteem can cause weight gain and there are plenty of other activities and emotional issues that can contribute to a heavier-than-you’d-like physique. If you’ve tried sensible dieting and exercise plans without success, it might be time to consider a more holistic approach to shedding those pounds that addresses not just your body, but your mind, heart, and spirit.


Winter is coming to an end and the warmer weather is on its way! Here at Miraval, our guests spend much of their day outside hiking, swimming or doing a challenge activity. But you don't have to be on vacation to spend time outdoors. Spending time outside and soaking up the sunshine (and some much needed Vitamin D) will help you relieve stress, improve your mood, and boost your immune system. Plus, getting outside promotes activity and movement and we all know that being active helps keep your muscles and heart healthy. Here are five ways to spend more time outdoors.
