Even small ceremonies have a way of working up the stress levels of couples all over the world, meaning it can be a good idea to try and recognize when you’re becoming frustrated over something that doesn’t merit such a response. Since going through the ups and downs of the planning process can take a toll, focusing on your health and wellness throughout the period leading to your big day can be important.

When you run yourself ragged trying to put together a perfect event, you put more and more pressure on your immune system. To avoid the odds of getting sick on your big day and keep yourself feeling your absolute best, use these tips and focus on your wellness.

Food and Water

Drinking water and eating are pretty basic requirements for the human body. Sadly, some people fall short. On the hydration front, experts suggest adults drink roughly eight glasses of water each day. Unfortunately, statistics show that about half of the adult population of the United States doesn’t drink the recommended daily amount. If this sounds familiar, then you should consider making a change. Drinking ample water flushes out your system, keeps your immune system functioning, and gives your skin a healthy and radiant look.

When it comes to food, your best bet is to create a diet that allows you the ability to balance health with enjoyment. Eating only the bare minimum of calories for several months in order to get the “perfect” shape for your nuptials is an easy way to make that period of time agonizing, arduous, and annoying. Instead, learn to diet and exercise in a manner that helps you maintain physical and mental health. Don’t beat yourself up for indulging now and then, especially when you need to have joy in your life in some capacity.


Another basic need of the human body that people tend to push to the side is sleep. Though experts say that people require about eight hours of uninterrupted sleep per night to be functional, society doesn’t allow for this. Between absurd workweeks, social obligations, and the ubiquitous presence of the internet, going to bed at a normal time and getting the correct amount of slumber is far from the norm. Sadly, allowing sleep to take a backseat is a very easy way to fall sick, as you need rest for your immune system to function. 

Some professionals suggest limiting screen time before bed. The blue light that is put off by digital devices like phones and tablets may be the cause of certain types of insomnia. According to certain anecdotal studies, the blue light triggers the same part of the brain that sunlight does, giving the false impression to the brain that it is day and time to be alert. Instead of reaching for your phone to scroll social sites, grab an actual book. Flipping through the pages is going to have the opposite effect as your phone, encouraging feelings of drowsiness almost immediately.


Finally, don’t forget to focus on your mood. Emotional health is just as important as physical and mental wellness. If you find yourself getting worked up and losing your cool more often than not, you need to take a step back and figure out the best way to get control of your emotions and feel less stress. 

While planning a wedding might seem like the type of task you need to throw your entire being into, you also need to give yourself a break in the right ways. Be sure to focus on basic necessities like eating well, drinking water, and getting plenty of rest to help you feel your best as your big day approaches.
