With any luck, lockdown will start to ease soon and we can begin to go out again. However, for now it’s all about enjoying time at home, either finding ways to make a little space for ourselves or creating ways to relax with members of the family. So as we head into another bank holiday of social distancing, how can you help take care of your wellbeing at home over the bank holiday…
You don’t have to make a song and dance about bringing aromatherapy into your everyday life. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to a cloth and wipe it across surfaces around the house so that you get a waft of it every time you walk in the room. It’s one of those little things that means a lot.
If you grow herbs in the garden, then you really don’t need to be a scientist to brew a herbal infusion. There is something intensely relaxing about making tea from the garden, and it’s so incredibly simple. Obviously make sure that you know what you’re using and if you’re in any doubt, do not consume it. However, picking a few leaves of mint, a sprig of rosemary or chamomile, or grating a little ginger from the fridge is part of a holistic wellbeing at home ritual that’s deliciously simple. Boil for a few minutes and leave to brew for a further five minutes. Then enjoy a few moments just to yourself, or share the moment with someone you love.
Just because you can’t go out to a spa at the moment doesn’t mean that you can get some of the benefits for wellbeing at home. Set the scene with scented candles, relaxing music, a favourite book or magazine, and a fresh clean robe and slippers to settle into.
When it comes to spa breaks, there are restrictions on the the at which you’re allowed to join the spa, but at home you can start introducing them to the powers of self care, and you can make it inclusive and fun.
