Here at Sanctuary Spa, we believe that a good self care routine shouldn’t cost the earth or take hours of your time. To prove this, we’ve put together 5 simple 5-minute self care ideas to inspire you to take some time for yourself whenever you have a spare moment or two.
What Is Self Care?
First things first, what is self care? Often unrealistic visions of decadent spa retreats and expensive massages spring to mind. However, self care can be as easy as soaking in a hot bath or lighting a luxurious candle and taking a minute to process how your day has gone. Put simply, self care is anything that allows you to focus on yourself for a few precious moments. Whether you have 5 minutes, 25 minutes or 5 hours, there are plenty of self care tips you can try to boost your mood and wellbeing.
Why Is Self Care Important?
Self care is often overlooked or forgotten in our busy lives. However, taking a moment for yourself is really important for boosting your mood, increasing self-esteem and allowing you to unwind. Establishing a regular self care routine can help to prevent burn-out, support your emotional wellbeing and even improve sleep quality.

It contains a sumptuous blend of Sweet Almond and Macademia Nut Oils to leave skin feeling silky smooth. In just 5 minutes, you’ll have that luxury spa feeling for a fraction of the time and cost.
