Tips for shoppers on how to keep healthy this Spring

Have your say

SHOPPERS in Sunderland can get advice on keeping healthy this Spring.

Tomorrow a drop-in Wellbeing Clinic will be held in the Central Square in The Bridges from 10am to 5pm.

There will be tips from Boots Pharmacy on eyesight and how to stop smoking, Debenhams will showcase affordable workout attire, The Body Shop will conduct skin consultations, mini makeovers and hand massages and Costa Coffee will keep visitors hydrated with freshly made, healthy juices.

A Weight Watchers representative will also be on hand to help shoppers focus on goal weights, measure their BMI and offer top tips on staying focused.

A representative from Sunderland Yoga Studio and a holistic healer will also be part of the clinic.

Andy Bradley, centre director at The Bridges, said: “It’s easy to let the good intentions from the beginning of the year slip by. We want to provide a helping hand and motivate our shoppers to ensure it is not too late to get back on track. Healthy habits can become a way of life and can be a great example to set to friends and family.

“We have a range of retailers in the centre that can help inspire workouts and meals, plus Boots Pharmacy can conduct lifestyle tests in store such as blood pressure. Our Wellbeing Clinic is a one-stop shop for people who have the passion and desire to live a healthier, more active lifestyle but need a bit of guidance to do so.”
