It’s easy to forget to look after yourself when there’s so much going on. Both Claire and I know this only too well. With the added stress of Covid-19 on top of difficult personal circumstances, plus running a business, we have to remind ourselves that looking after number 1 is not only allowed but important.
Here are a few things that have perked us up over the last few months… we hope they inspire you to take some time for yourself too.
It probably won’t come as a surprise to you that food is one of the things that has made things bearable. We both treated each other to some sustenance during lock down. Here are some ideas to spoil yourself.
Baking has provided a great source of comfort and if you need some cheesecake inspo take a look at PLEESECAKES
I sent Claire some Biscuiteers iced biscuits – the perfect special treat with a cuppa.
With spas closed for the foreseeable, there’s one truly spectacular company making it easy to treat your skin at home. Plus their environmental and ethical ethos is second to none. If you’ve not come across Tropic before, now is the time to try them out. I promise you won’t regret it.
It can be utterly disheartening reading and watching the news at the moment. Why not balance this out by subscribing to The Happy Newspaper it truly is a ray of sunshine in these crazy times.
Exercise your right to ‘me time’.
It’s difficult to get moving with the gyms and exercise classes closed but, with all the extra baking and cooking we’re doing, it’s probably a good idea to move a bit more. I’ve found some great ideas on Pinterest and YouTube for exercise routines – but Claire’s gone one better taking part in Free online Yoga classes and Freeletics – an exercise app, with a 3 month subscription option for just over £30 total.
