A January detox

Katy Peck

How original a blog on detoxing in January, I know, it has been done already by vast hordes of online gurus and health fanatics. So what could the Sail Lofts possibly have to say about detoxing in January after a cheese filled, stuffing packed Christmas and New Year?

Just that there is no better place to clear away the old and what was 2016 than embracing this humble Cornish village, and letting the winds of this unique part of coastline blow away the metaphorical cobwebs in your mind, invigorate the soul and kick start 2017 in the only way that St Ives knows how…

No this has nothing to do with how much this sleepy backwater likes to party when it comes to New Year, however maybe this is how it has become the New Year destination of choice for many A list celebrities and party revelers.

I think we can all identify with the tonic that is walking across a windswept beach and connecting with nature at its most basic level. It’s a great way to unclutter your mind and start making plans for the year ahead without the constant nagging of day-to-day life.

The first walk, or beach walk of the year always sticks in my mind and has strong influence over the way the year ahead is shaped. Whether it is goals at work that you wish to surmount, personal achievements you wish to conquer, the best way to achieve any accomplishment is to plan.

So why not start your 2017 with a luxury self-cateirng break in St Ives, the Sail Loft luxury apartments offers weekend getaways, and mid-week stays just moments from the beach, and seconds from the harbour front. With miles of coastal footpaths leading out of St Ives in both directions, either around the safe St Ives Bay, or out along the wild coastal paths towards Zennor. Allow St Ives to be your creative and soul enriching getaway for your year ahead, so that you can face all your challenges for the year head on.

Should you be in need of rest and relaxation, we have an on-site studio spa, perfect for working away your tension, and leaving you feeling restored, or why not join and sign up for a class of yoga with locally reknown Lucy Aldridge, and meditate your way in to starting the year in the right way.
