In September and October this year, we partnered with Wanderlust 108 in six states, reaching thousands of wellness enthusiasts seeking more mindfulness, movement and nutrition tips — the essentials of a happy and healthy life. We’re the No. 1 Vitamin and Supplement Brand in Australia, and we’re on the move to foster lifelong wellness in countries far and wide, including the U.S. We met a lot of amazing people at our Destination Happiness pop-up under the Dream Dome and inside the Beauty Garden and Detox Station. For our new friends, and for everyone whom we haven’t met yet, we offer a round-up of wellness content on our blog.
We hope you’ll bookmark this site and reference it on your wellness journey. Our goal is to make it valuable for you as a guide to a happy and healthy life. Here are the best wellness tips from 2018.

TOP MINDFULNESS TIPS FROM OUR GUIDE TO A HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIFE
Sleep well. For Type A women especially, the eight most powerful words from Arianna Huffington’s 2010 TEDWomen talk are “shut your engines and discover the power of sleep.” Quality shuteye is the antidote for a restless mind, and if you’re among the 50-70 million U.S. adults with a sleep disorder, these 13 tricks to get better sleep may help.
Meditate. As Dan Harris shows us in 10% Happier, his #1 New York Times bestseller, the benefits of meditation for taming the mind are profound. We practiced 5-minute meditation under the Dream Dome at Wanderlust 108 and learned that even just a few minutes of meditation are enough to calm your mind. Emotional wellbeing can waver during the holidays as diet and gym routines give way to indulgences. Find your rhythm and get moving with a walking meditation.
Be introspective. Self-reflection can lead to greater happiness and so can dance! Australian model, certified health coach, yogini and Swisse Wellness Brand Ambassador, Ash Hart, shares 5 ways to change your life and help you find balance in a hectic world.
Get uncomfortable. If you want to make life changes, you need to be open and willing to get outside of your comfort zone. A former rugby player and personal trainer to the stars reveals the essential quality for achieving personal growth.

TOP MOVEMENT TIPS FROM OUR GUIDE TO A HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIFE
Move often. No, that doesn’t mean you have to be a gym rat. You’re busy, we get it. And finding time to fit a yoga or Pilates class into your daily schedule can be hard. But did you know you can be fit as a fiddle in as little as six moves? It’s true! See how you can save time and get strong in just a few moves a day with the No Gym Workout.
Go easy. You don’t have to buckle down with a strict exercise plan to elevate your endorphins (a key to feeling happy). A swift 15-minute walk twice a day goes a long way to helping you keep fit. Start easy and find more energy with simple ways to maintain a healthy mind and body.
Keep it simple. Got a stressed-out man in your life who says he’s too busy to think about self-care? It’s true that all the movement tips in the world won’t help a guy who doesn’t prioritize his health. It happens. To get him active again, start with the basics and follow the simple acronym M-E-N. It’s a 3-step process to boost men’s health (and happiness!).
TOP NUTRITION TIPS FROM OUR GUIDE TO A HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIFE
Take your vitamins. And make sure you’re putting those vital nutrients to work for you. Vitamins and supplements can be key ingredients to keeping your mind and body healthy. Swisse nutritionist Sherree Banh shares the best ways to get the most from your daily vitamins.
Nourish the brain. Stock your pantry and refrigerator with foods known for boosting brain power, like beets, blueberries and dark chocolate. Select from the list of brain foods that support cognitive health. Eat up — and don’t forget the avocado!
Make 2019 your year to celebrate life every day. That’s the philosophy behind Swisse — we’re passionate about health, happiness and wellbeing. We believe that the way you live has a direct impact on the enjoyment you get out of life.
