Blue Monday is known as the most depressing day of the year and with lockdown rules still in place and the coronavirus pandemic taking its toll, it’s more important than ever to look after your mental health. With that in mind, we’ve collated 5 self care ideas to help you create a relaxing self care routine.
What Is Self Care?
Self care is about putting your physical and mental health first, whether that be eating right, staying active, enjoying a pamper session or being sociable (even if virtually).
By practising self care, you’re then better placed to transmit those good feelings onto others, helping to increase their quality of life too.
5 Self Care Ideas
1. Create a calming environment
A cluttered environment (say a messy kitchen, piled up clothes that need putting away or a stack of unopened bills) can lower your sense of control and increase stress levels. Taking half an hour to tidy up, then sitting back, lighting a few candles and enjoying the new decluttered space can increase your sense of accomplishment and self-esteem.
To create the perfect calming atmosphere after decluttering, explore our range of relaxing candles. Our Pink Grapefruit Candle, for instance, boasts a zesty citrus fusion of Grapefruit, Orange Blossom, Floral Gardenia and Anise that creates a revitalising fragrance. It’s the perfect way to delight the senses and calm the mind.
