Lacking in the self-care department? Not anymore. It’s time to give yourself the TLC you deserve. This Valentine’s Day, we’re helping you to rekindle the romance with the most important person in your life (you!). We’ve put together our top four self-care activities to try, because you deserve it.
Write an appreciation note
It’s time to appreciate you! Writing yourself a letter allows you to take a moment to pause, reflect and appreciate how far you have come, where you are today, and even set goals for your future. To begin, grab a pen and paper, settle in for the night, and write down all of the positive things you want to say to yourself, just like you would to a family member. Resist the urge to point out your flaws, instead focusing on what you admire, your strengths and your gifts. Keep your letter tucked away for safekeeping and bring out every few months to celebrate how far you’ve come in your self-care journey.
Unwind and relax
Looking for a reason to relax, unwind and recharge? You’re in luck. We’ve just launched the limited edition The Botanical Soak, the ultimate self-care experience consisting of natural magnesium flakes, rose petals, pink French clay, Himalayan salt and rose geranium oil. Add one scoop to your warm bath, put on our ‘The Botanical Soak’ playlist on spotify, light a candle and sink away. Disconnect from the outside world and get ready for a night of pure bliss, wine - optional.
Cooking for self-care
Dinner for one, please! Cooking can be a modern-day form of self-care, a process that not only nourishes the body but your mind as well… and what better way to show yourself some serious love than a healthy, nutritious meal filled with all of your favourite foods! Some of our picks include a ‘nourish bowl’ filled with roast vegetables and falafels, a one-pan roasted chicken or even a hearty lasagna. Take the time to set yourself a place at the table, sit down (putting your phone away!) and be present, enjoying each mouthful.
Gift yourself something
Caught yourself eyeing off a massage voucher or that beautiful new yoga studio? Be your own Valentine and gift yourself something special.
