Explore Jojo Struys' holistic approach to bringing order and calm to a busy mind
  • Sleep Well
    # 1 For Restorative Sleep
    Never go to bed angry. You will be bringing negative energy into your sleep, which is meant to be a vital time of rest and restoration.
  • Sleep Well
    # 2 Let Your Mind Unwind
    Avoid checking emails at bedtime or talk about work just before you go to bed. Your bed should be associated with sleep and relaxation.
  • Sleep Well
    # 3 Choose the Right Mattress
    Make sure your bed is comfortable, because a pleasant sleeping experience goes a long way in determining how refreshed you are the next morning. I look forward to the ten-layer comfort of Westin Heavenly Bed on my travels.
  • Sleep Well
    # 4 End on a Positive Note
    Think of something positive that happened that day or focus on a moment of gratitude just before bedtime. It’s a powerful way to help you carry a sense of well-being into your sleep.
  • Sleep Well
    # 5 Bedtime Sanctuary
    Make your room conducive for relaxation. Use dim mood lighting or play soothing music to get yourself into the right space to wind down and disconnect from your day.
  • Eat Well
    # 1 Start with breakfast
    Never skip breakfast, as that can lead to overeating at lunchtime. Moderation is key and smaller meals, rather than one big meal, eases digestion.
  • Eat Well
    # 2 Drink Up
    Water is life and it gives us energy so I try to drink about 8 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration and chronic fatigue.
  • Eat Well
    # 3 Power Up with Smoothies
    I love power smoothies and I enjoy mine with fresh fruits, nuts, natural honey, extra virgin coconut oil and topped with goji berries. When I travel, I look to Westin Fresh by the Juicery for a curated assortment of nourishing, healthy juices and smoothies.
  • Eat Well
    # 4 Love Olive Oil
    I enjoy a good pasta or salad with extra virgin olive oil because it tastes great and is good for your heart.
  • Eat Well
    # 5 Go for Real Food
    I go for fresh produce over processed foods. It’s much healthier and it’s ‘real food’. When I’m on the road, I enjoy the SuperFoodsRX™ selection and gluten-free corner at Seasonal Tastes in The Westin Singapore.
  • Eat Well
    # 6 Cut Out Sugar
    I limit the amount of processed sugar I consume by replacing it with molasses or honey.
  • Work Well
    # 1 Wake Earlier
    I make it a point to wake up before 6am and start my day with meditation. I find that it places my mind into positivity for the rest of the day.
  • Work Well
    # 2 Get into a Regimen
    Make a decision that you would like to change about your life, and fully commit to it. The more consistent you are, the easier it is to turn it into a habit.
  • Work Well
    # 3 Unplug this Weekend
    Travel somewhere new for a long weekend to disconnect from your stresses and gain fresh perspectives. A change of scenery and some quality time to yourself can really help you recharge.
  • Work Well
    # 4 Slow Down to Speed Up
    Even the best athletes need rest to allow their bodies to recover, and the same thing applies to an overworked mind. Take a step back and slow down before returning to your daily grind. You will return with more energy after some ‘time-out’ to regroup.
  • Work Well
    # 5 Learn to Say 'No'
    We can sometimes say ‘no’ to unrealistic demands on our time. Work on what is most important to you and know that you can never please everyone. Listen to your body’s tension at the thought of doing something that feels burdensome to you.
  • Feel Well
    # 1 A Deserving Gateaway
    Go away for a holiday, even if it’s a short getaway. You can ‘live to work’ but it’s much better to ‘work to live’ so that you can strike a healthy mind and body balance.
  • Feel Well
    # 2 A Sensory Treat
    Indulge your senses by checking yourself into a spa or living it up without the guilt from time to time. The Heavenly Spa at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa offers breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea amidst fresh green tropics.
  • Feel Well
    # 3 Meditate for Answers
    Meditate to clear the mind of anxious thoughts. Often times, it’s when we have a quiet moment to ourselves that answers come to us in the silence.
  • Feel Well
    # 4 Letting Go
    Perfectionists tend to be high-strung and too hard on themselves. Think of the bigger picture and always try your best in all that you do, but learn to let go of what isn’t within your control.
  • Feel Well
    # 5 Follow Your Passions
    Follow your passions. It’s the best indication that you are on the right track for doing what makes you feel really inspired, in the right space.
  • Play Well
    # 1 Go with the Flow
    There’s only so much you can plan on a holiday, so have a sense of adventure and don’t take things too seriously. Some of the best stories you bring home from your travels are likely not the ones that are planned.
  • Play Well
    # 2 Play Hard
    Work hard and play hard because as cliché as it sounds, it’s true that all work and no play makes life dull. Make sure you take time out to do what rejuvenates you.
  • Play Well
    # 3 Love Your Weekends
    Spend quality time doing the things you love on your weekend because the weekend is precious and ideally, it should be spent without too much work on your mind.
  • Play Well
    # 4 Hit the Sauna
    Saunas are a great form of detox and they don’t take long at all. They can also really relax the muscles and be a great way to end a hectic day.
  • Play Well
    # 5 Get Lost in a Book
    There’s nothing like getting immersed in a good book. The act of reading stimulates your mind and rejuvenates you, because it’s something you can only do with the luxury of time.
  • Move Well
    # 1 Hike in Nature
    I love hiking in nature because nature effortlessly calms the mind and has a relaxing effect on the senses. If you’re staying at The Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa, Phuket, take time out to explore the Phang Nga Bay.
  • Move Well
    # 2 Keep Moving
    Do basic stretching exercises like shoulder rolls or ankle rotations at your work desk to keep your blood circulation going. If you’re flying long distance, get up and walk every couple of hours.
  • Move Well
    # 3 Start with Yoga
    I love starting my day with a few yoga poses to elongate the spine and to warm up the body. It doesn’t take long and a few yoga stretches can ward off stiff joints, especially if you are spending long hours in cold, air-conditioned environments.
  • Move Well
    # 4 Group Motivation
    I play squash and tennis every week, and the great thing about a group sport is that it ensures you show up because you’ve already made an appointment with your friends.
  • Move Well
    # 5 Tap Dance & Jam
    I’m an avid tap dancer and I often jam with drummers. Combining tap with live percussion really puts me in the flow because it’s all about music and creative expression.
