Discover Self-care Sundays

Making space for you

What are Self-care Sundays?

Whether you're short on time or you're struggling to get a good night's sleep, feel the need to reconnect with your body or want a little time where no-one can reach you on your mobile phone. Making space for self-care isn't always easy... but what if you booked out a little non-negotiable time?

Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to overlook our own wellbeing - it’s often the first thing to go when you find yourself feeling too busy or overwhelmed.

Whether it's carving out time for meditation, unplugging from screens or calling a friend we want to make sure self-care becomes a sacred part of all our lives. So, every week we're bringing you ideas to give yourself a break with time dedicated to taking care of your mental, physical and emotional health.

Taking care of yourself isn't another thing to add to your to-do list - it's giving you the rest and recovery you deserve. Give yourself the opportunity to feel like the best version of yourself by putting a date in the diary for you with our Self-care Sunday ideas.

Brought to you by Creative Designer, Rhea Whelan and Marketing Executive, Phoebe Miller.

A gentle reminder

It's very easy to get wrapped up in what we see others sharing online and quickly begin comparing our lives. We are wired to constantly compare ourselves to others and evaluate our lives against those of our peers. Be patient with yourself - we all grow at our own pace.

Spa treatments if you are...

Spa treatments offer time away from our phones, our busy lives - time focused entirely on ourselves. They can be relaxing, invigorating, restorative - perhaps they are targeted treatments to address a skincare issue that we have been anxious about. There are spa treatments tailored for all kinds of needs that ultimately give the brain a little time to relax.
