With the festive season upon us, we have put together our very own Aura Advent Calendar, bringing together 12 well-being tips to inspire and encourage our members. Hopefully our top well-being tips will leave you feeling refreshed and energised, ready for a new year!
- Try a Studio Cycling Class at Mold, Flint or Buckley Leisure Centre: they run at different times throughout the week and are a brilliant way to exercise your whole body. Click here to view our fitness class timetable.
- Ask your librarian for a book recommendation based on the types of interests you have, they’ll be sure to help you find something that’s right up your street. It might end up being your new favourite book!
- Even with a healthy diet and lots of exercise, winter can still catch up with us! Take a trip to Afon Spa’s Pop Up Beauty Room based at Jade Jones Pavilion Flint for a warming pick me up. Treat yourself to a treatment, whether it’s your nails or a massage, the Pop Up Beauty Room is the perfect place to destress.
- Ask one of our fitness instructors to recommend a fitness class or new piece of equipment to challenge you as you work towards new fitness goals.
- Take up a Tai Chi Movements class at Jade Jones Pavilion or from home on Zoom. It is a group based class that uses slow, smooth body movements to relax both body and mind. It can also help to improve flexibility, balance control and fitness.
- Try something new! Why not join our ‘Reading Friends’ shared reading group via Zoom, where we get together to socialise and share reading recommendations. (For more information, visit the Aura Libraries Facebook page: @LlyfrgelloeddAuraLibraries or email Susannah.firstname.lastname@example.org )
