Bath & Beauty

One of the best things that you can do to help yourself unwind after a long, hard day involves indulging in a few bath & beauty related treats. Running yourself an extra hot bath with a calming lavender bubble cream is the perfect way to release a little stress and tension, and you can even take it a step further by adding a luxurious face mask and a couple of cold cucumber slices to help strained eyes cool down. For those of you who are feeling the burn after a particularly vigorous workout, utilising a CBD muscle rub is the ideal way to release tension and relieve aches and stress pains, and simple cocoa or Shea butter lotion is a great way to provide dry skin with some much needed moisture. 


Meditation is a traditional practice that has been used by billions of people over many thousands of years, and it involves taking some quiet time to focus and relax your mind to let go of stress and negative energy to adopt a more positive mindset. You don’t need any special skills or equipment to start experimenting with meditation, just the determination and patience to stick with it. There are many tutorials online that can show you exactly how to meditate, but the basic instructions describe finding a comfortable quiet place in which you can just let your muscles relax and your mind wander. Try to free yourself of passing thoughts, focusing on a serene location like a white sandy beach. Meditation can teach you how to be a more patient and accepting person, encouraging calmness and a sense of balance. Click here to book a session with me to find out more about my Positive Mindfulness 10-week one to one online course!
