This heat makes everything harder, and your everyday self-care routine is no exception! That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the easiest, most fun ways to keep healthy this summer – mind and body.
A Workout with Your Girlfriends at Nightingale
Sometimes, finding self-motivation to work out can be hard – we blame deadlines and Netflix. The best way to stay healthy? Working out with your best friends and holding each other accountable (catching up while those endorphins are flowing is just the proverbial cherry on top). Nightingale Dubai has launched 25% off a range of classes every Tuesday just for ladies. Gather your workout besties and book a Pilates class for two (AED 187.50) or a group class for up to five (AED 375) of your favourite people. These 45-minute personalised classes mean you receive one-on-one expertise from Nightingale’s Pilates instructor and physiotherapist, Roxanne Francis.

Gummies That Are Good for You
Even with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, studies show that our body will never be at 100% of our full capacity. Not to fear, these little vegan gummies by Rite were created by two Dubai friends and are the perfect thing to munch on (bonus points for tasting delicious). Made using a unique mix of superfood ingredients such as ginseng, guarana, and acerola for energy alongside artichoke, fennel, pineapple stem, and kola seed for better digestion, Rite gummies are the only ones that mix vitamins, amino acids, and plant-based ingredients.

A Health Podcast Heaped with Dietary Advice
Instead of death-scrolling through Facebook and Instagram to cure boredom, utilise this time and give back to yourself. We are obsessed with The Nutrition Diva’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous podcast by nutritionist Monica Reinagel (a.k.a. Nutrition Diva). Taking a “sane, scientific” approach to dietary advice that cuts through the often-conflicting information, she offers simple ideas and practical tips. Whether you’re trying to pick a non-dairy milk alternative or curious about intermittent fasting, her level-headed delivery will leave you feeling calmer as well as better informed about your choices.
