If you’re staying in our serviced apartments in Reading, use our wellness platform PS Life to live well while you’re on the road. We have some excellent recipes, workouts and meditations to enjoy and our team are always on hand to suggest outdoor activities. Start here for some inspiration.
Enjoy the Outdoors
With the weather due to brighten up (any day now!), it’s a great time to wrap up and get to know the great outdoors surrounding our accommodation in Reading. Being outdoors doesn’t always mean strenuous exercise, a simple walk or job is a great way to get your steps up with minimal effort. PS Life provides local jogging routes in Reading for those who like to get out and clear their heads. You can also enjoy a stroll around the town and enjoy walks along the Thames and Kennet Rivers. For those more adventurous, you can visit outdoor adventure spaces like Lagoona Park or Cloud Stables for a bit of horse riding.

Fill your days with interesting and exciting activities while keeping up your staying active new year’s resolution. Parthian Climbing Centre is excellent for kids and adults to stay active and explore their adventurous side. It’s a lot harder than it looks and is sure to get your heart racing. Red Kangaroo is another great spot to tire out the little ones.

Eat Well, Live Well
So many new year’s resolutions involve weight loss. Instead of cutting out certain food groups or restricting your intake, why not change the way you think about food? Food is fuel for your body and making the right choices can help keep you fuelled for longer. Aim for more colourful and nutritious options at every mealtime but still allow yourself a treat when you need it. PS Life gives guests a healthy menu, ideal to learn new recipes, testing them in your private in-suite kitchen.
