Your Wellness Day in Galway – A 6-step Guide
The last two years alone have had a major impact on the mental wellbeing of everyone in Ireland.
You might have forgotten what truly makes you happy, deep down inside. The simple things that gave you joy.
So why not treat yourself to a wellness day in Galway?
And to help you with that here’s a 6-step plan for enjoying a variety of wellness experiences in Galway.
Start your wellness journey with a walk around the famous Claddagh. You don’t need to go for a run but getting sunlight into your eyes first thing in the morning has distinct psychological benefits – it actually makes you feel better.
You also don’t need to walk Galway from end to end to feel healthier.
The Claddagh was once an ancient fishing village, dating from the fifth century, and has stunning scenes of the Atlantic Ocean and Galway Coastline.
Metcon Training in Galway
Now that you’ve warmed up your muscles it’s time to take things to the next level with a 45-minute MetCon fitness class at PowerGym.
This allows you to boost your metabolism and sweat out all those toxins from the last several months of unhealthy living.
Rooftop Brunch in Galway
After a cooldown and a relaxing detox in the thermal suite at PowerGym, it’s time to recharge your cells with some delicious food.
Sophie’s Rooftop Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal prepared with fresh ingredients including local produce.
And you get to enjoy stunning views of the Galway City skyline.
Well-being cannot exist just in your own head. Well-being is a combination of feeling good as well as actually having meaning, good relationships, and accomplishment. – Martin Seligman
Coffee and Journal by the Spanish Arch.
It’s the most Irish thing ever to say, “I’ll go and think about that”. But that doesn’t solve anything. A better solution is to grab your journal or diary, grab a coffee from the Dime Coffee Bar, and write down your thoughts looking over the River Corrib.
This provides you with a way to mentally work through any issues you’re currently facing, and the odd thing is that you won’t be as preoccupied with those thoughts afterward.
Who knows – you might even come up with an idea for that novel you’ve always wanted to write.
Enjoy Healthy Dining Options
The temptation now might be to treat yourself to a takeaway or some other pile of greasy goodness, but why not consider a healthier option instead?
Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, Galway offers a great range of vegetarian restaurants such as the Lighthouse and the Gourmet Offensive while Sophie’s Rooftop serves up a selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Catch a Gig at the Pálás Cinema
Modern chain cinemas are large, soulless, and empty – they all look and feel the same. Which is totally unlike the retro, quirky vibe that the Pálás Cinema is all about.
Pálás is a concrete monolith, five storey over double-height basement housing a three-screen independent cinema, a beautiful bar and terrace for you to enjoy with your fellow film-lovers.
And if you don’t fancy drinking alcohol you can always just get a soft drink and a big bag of popcorn.
Most people go on sun holidays to recharge and reboot but then come back more exhausted than when they left.
Why do that to yourself when you can sign up for one of our Stay & Dine packages that will leave you feeling a healthier, and happier you?
A wellness day in Galway might be just what the doctor ordered.
