Daily health rituals can be very simple to do and have a huge impact on your ability to recharge, repair and withstand the stress of 21st century life. If you’re feeling drained, we recommend trying these simple tricks to help revitalise your body this October.
Adopt the Hopewood philosophy
The Hopewood philosophy promotes vegetarianism, plenty of water and freshly prepared juices, food combining, regular exercise and relaxation. It also emphasises the power of fresh air and spending some time in our natural environment.
It’s an achievable and sustainable lifestyle, which helps people feel more energetic, reach and maintain a healthy weight, manage stress and get more out of life.

Staying active, even at a leisurely pace, will maintain bone mass, increase flexibility and cardio fitness. It can also help improve your mood and outlook on life.
Get enough sleep!
