Self-care has been a big topic this year and rightly so. It’s a nice way to do little things to take care yourself to reset amidst hectic lives and uncertainty.
Self-care doesn’t have to cost anything and I worry about the commercialisation of this term. Sleep, positive self-talk and eating well are the best forms of self-care and the first two are free!
Here are some ideas if you want to give a self-care themed gift to a loved one.
I’m obsessed with these Daylesford Organic candles. They’re paraffin and GM wax free and smell amazing. Perfect to light just before a yoga or mediation session.
A wood and ceramic diffuser is a brilliant way to clean the air and can be very calming, especially when you add in a few essential oils. And your house will smell amazing too!
A subscription to the Yoga with Adriene Find What Feels Good app. A daily yoga practice can create an amazing sense of health and wellbeing. For me personally, it grounds and calms me, whilst being an incredible workout that has sorted out my dodgy back and right knee.
A health & wellbeing consultation with me! Give yourself or your loved one the best start to 2018 with a personalised gift certificate for a consultation or value towards a package.
I love this body scrub. It’s such a beautiful product that makes the shower feel like a spa. So rejuvenating and the matcha in it helps to give you a healthy glow.
A colourful yoga mat (that can go in the washing machine). There is something nice about having your own yoga mat when you take yoga classes, isn’t there?
A weighted blanket. These are amazing – they ‘trick’ the nervous system into thinking you’re receiving a hug or some form of touch and can help you relax and fall asleep more easily. Perfect for those times when you’re struggling to switch your brain off.
