The Mandarin Oriental guide to wellbeing

In need of a quick reboot? We asked the experts for their essential self-care tips.

When it comes to wellbeing and mental health, even small steps and changes can help to clear your mind and boost your mood. We asked three industry insiders for their tips on self-care, from morning rituals and meditation to dealing with stress. Their number one pointer? Make self-care part of your everyday routine. “There’s so much wellness advice out there, it can feel overwhelming,” says Jeremy McCarthy, Mandarin Oriental’s Group Director of Spa and Wellness. “We’re supposed to exercise, meditate, walk, stretch, diet, socialise… The list goes on and on. The important thing, I think, is not to feel pressured to do it all; it’s more about creating opportunities in your week to do things you find restorative and energising.”
