Take A Break This Easter
When there’s so much going on and so many uncertainties, it’s all too easy to put your personal wellbeing on the backburner. When there’s work, studying, relationships and never ending news updates to process, even taking five minutes to yourself can seem impossible, but a four-day weekend is the perfect opportunity to have some ‘me time’.
A long weekend doesn’t mean that you must or even should attempt to get everything on your to-do list done, but if you’re going to set some goals for your Easter break, make sure relaxing is high on the agenda. Adding a few simple, soothing techniques into your routine will help you to de-stress, and hopefully you’ll exit the four days with a renewed energy and a spring in your step! Take a look at our favourite ways to chill out and move yourself one step closer to a relaxing long weekend.
Take a dip
There are more benefits to a good, long soak than you realise. They can help your wellbeing in lots of positive ways like easing muscle pains, improving sleep quality, and depending on what you add to the water, soothe dry skin and eczema. It doesn’t stop there either! You can mix a lovely soak with reading, listening to music or a podcast and even using scented candles for a cosy atmosphere. Make sure a sumptuously soft towel is close to hand and your favourite PJs and slippers are waiting for you when you get out. It’s also a lovely way to help your little one’s unwind, with lots of bubbles and their favourite bath toys all helping to get them ready for a restful night’s sleep.
We couldn’t miss out on mentioning our latest Easter bathroom range. We’re hopping for joy over the latest additions from soothing honey almond handwash, lotion and sanitiser to adorable embroidered towels that will make every-bunny smile. So treat yourself to an extra-bubbly, super relaxing long bath this Easter weekend.
Relax your way
Relaxing doesn’t stop at a fantastic bubble bath, if a long soak isn’t for you and you’re after more tips and tricks to help you unwind, we have plenty of ideas. Whether we realise it or not, we use our mobile phones for everything, from work calls and emails to double-tapping on Instagram. If you can bear to be parted (no joke – it is hard to resist scrolling during downtime), try a phone detox by popping your phone in a drawer. Turn the sound on if you’re expecting a call, or choose silent mode and take some time to focus on something relaxing and technology-free.
Reading, writing, going for a lovely spring walk, playing board games or even trying some crafting are all wholesome ways you can focus on your wellbeing. If you’re a fan of cooking or baking, you could even take this time to try out that new recipe you’ve had your eye on or get the kids involved with a fun (or messy!) baking session. All that matters is that you’re taking a break from screens for a while and experiencing joy in the world around you.
