Self-Care Tips you can Start Today
Celebrate Wellness Week by introducing some of these self-care tips into your everyday life, you will soon reap the benefits and feel all the better for it.
It’s easy to get swept away in the stresses of daily life and forget to take time for yourself. Now more than ever we need to take care of ourselves and indulge in a little self-care now and again and this is your reminder to do it today.
Self-care is such a personal experience, and no two self-care routines look the same. What soothes your soul might not work for your friends and that is okay. You don’t need to incorporate every self-care tip into your life but small changes to your day can make all the difference. Do remember to only do things that add value to your life and don’t just follow a trend. If the idea of a 30-minute yoga class fills you with dread and not the zen energy you crave that’s okay, a walk could be just as rewarding.
It doesn’t have to be anything too strenuous, and I know daily exercise can seem daunting but getting in at least 30 minutes of light exercise each day is guaranteed to brighten your day and lift your mood.
It’s important to find a form of exercise that suits you. Don’t worry if you’re not a runner, a brisk walk is just as good for your wellbeing. Why not try something totally new and follow an online Zumba class! It might be a little out your comfort zone, but it could be just what you need. Maybe you have always wanted to try yoga but don’t know where to begin? Head over to our Instagram account and follow some of our guided yoga routines (there’s also some meditation in there), it’s perfect for beginners.
Get a Decent Night’s Sleep
Although this is easier said than done, it’s so important to get regular good sleep! Why not start a night time routine and unwind 30 minutes before bed. Pick up a book and stay away from your screen as the bright light can keep us hypnotised.
Have a bath before bed to soak away your worries and light our Aurora candle. Aurora is packed with Lavender essential oils which help aid sleep. Even popping an Aurora Reed Diffuser in your bedroom can have a huge impact, as it gently emits the soothing aromas of Lavender and Ylang-Ylang throughout your room.
Be Kind to Your Skin
Be kind to your skin and the rest with take care of itself. Make your skin care routine a priority and take time out your day to show your skin some TLC.
Our Hand & Body lotion can be the perfect self-care indulgence. Available in our four Classic fragrances it combines the luxurious softness of a cream and your favourite fragrance to keep you smelling amazing all day long.
The next time you’re out at the supermarket why not pick yourself up a bouquet of flowers or treat yourself to your favourite box of chocolates. Indulging in your favourite things once in a while can only be a good thing. It’s guaranteed to make you feel special, and you’re definitely worth a treat. Why not even order your favourite Essence of Harris candle?
Reach Out to your Loves Ones
You feel good when others feel good. Why not share your self-care tips with your friends, you might be able to swap some ideas and find a new step to incorporate into your routine. Even just reaching out and speaking to someone you love can bring a little bit of brightness to your day.
If you’re feeling extra generous then why not send them a surprise in the post. Our cosy blankets are the ultimate gesture to let someone know they’re valued or why not send them a soy wax candle as a little reminder to take some time for themselves.
Just incorporating some of our self-care tips above into your self-care routine could have a huge impact on your mood. Making small changes in your day to day can really impact your productivity and the way you feel. We are no experts, but these are just some of the things that have really worked for us.
