New Year Resolutions for a healthier and happier you
Here a Mercure Livingston Hotel we want to make 2017 the year of a healthier and happier lifestyle. Whether you're staying at the hotel for business or pleasure, the combination of these top tips and our facilities will keep those New Year resolutions in check all year!
1. Sleep well
Getting enough sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle and can do wonders to your mood and appearance. Sleep is crucial for improving your memory, and is also said to help you live longer and even encourage creativity.
It’s important to make time for yourself and unwind in our busy hectic lives. Not only will relaxing help to reduce stress levels, it also helps you to make better decisions by thinking more clearly. Make time for yourself and curl up to your favourite book or go for a leisurely swim in our indoor heated pool.
Research suggests people with strong social connections live longer than those who don’t. With technology in this day, it’s never been easier to stay in touch or rejuvenate a friendship. You might also want to make new friendships by joining social clubs with people of similar interests and take up a new hobby.
4. Eat well
Eating well promotes good health. A well-balanced healthy diet will boost your energy and mood levels and could even contribute towards weight loss. If you’re staying at the hotel, why not pop over to the Brasserie and try our selection of superfood salads for those that want to eat healthier and better. View our menus here
5. Go walking
Walking is a great form of exercise and there are many places in Livingston to enjoy a sunny winter’s walk. Take in the fresh air and appreciate the great outdoors and perhaps try a spot of hill walking at Beecraigs Country Park, less than 20 minute drive from the hotel.

It’s no secret that regular exercise can lower risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Research shows that physical activity can boost self-esteem, sleep quality and energy and even reduce stress. Whether you have a particular goal or just want to stay active, we have a variety of cardio equipment and free weights to cater for all your fitness needs.
