OUR TOP 5 SELF CARE PRODUCTS
elf-care is about putting aside some time to take care of yourself and do things that make you feel good. We mean it when we say – YOU deserve this!
We can all feel overwhelmed and stressed at times but in order to manage this, it’s important to give yourself a break and focus on YOU.
We will all have unique and individual ways to relax, be calm and de-stress, whether that’s a yoga class, getting your nails done, or getting stuck into a great fiction book. So, to help you make the most of your me-time, we’ve included some of our favourite self-care products and ideas below.
Treat yourself to a candle
Lighting a candle is a lovely way to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere in any room. We’d recommend lighting a candle before bed to help your body wind down and relax before getting those important ZZZ.
We love the collection from Neom Organics, in particular their ‘Scent to de-stress’ range, which has been specially formulated to create a deep calming effect on the mind and body.
Invest in a journal
I’m sure many of us kept a diary at some point during our childhood, but they’re actually hugely beneficial. Journaling is said to bring you into a state of mindfulness, helping to discount any current frustrations and anxieties – bringing you back into the present moment.
The best part of it? You can personalise your journal and manage it at your own pace. So, whether you write down your daily affirmations, keep track of your days, draw, paint or simply write any thoughts – you can make it your own.
We love this Personalised Foil Notebook from Not On The High Street. You can add your name, plus it makes the perfect gift for someone else!
Ensuring you have a good amount of sleep each night is essential to health in so many ways. The recommended amount is eight hours; however, some people need more and some need less. The important thing is you find out what is right for you and try and stick to a routine as much as possible.
Sleep spray is a great way to help you wind down before bedtime. This Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works is proven to help you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling more refreshed with its aromatherapeutic Superblend of scents including lavender.
Plants and flowers
Being surrounded by nature has been known to boost your mood and ease stress, but what if you could mimic that soothing vibe at home? Filling your house with flowers and plants is a great way to brighten up a room whilst also uplifting your mood.
For self-care week 2018 we’ve created a beautiful ‘Time For Me’ Letterbox bouquet featuring red roses, burgundy antirrhinum and purple spray carnation. We find Letterbox Flowers a great way to take a moment to focus on now – our customers love spending some time arranging their bouquets at home and every time you see your flowers, it’s a nice reminder of what you’ve achieved.
Listening to music
There’s nothing quite like putting on your favourite album, listening to some music and having a dance! In fact, just getting up and moving about is extremely beneficial in helping to improve your mood. However, there are times where you just want to zone out, whether you’re taking a bath or on your commute home. When it comes to winding down, we love the Time To Relax Album by Classic FM which features the most beautiful music to relax and unwind to.
