Are you taking care of yourself?
You can do anything, but you can't do everything
Burn-out is insidious and comes with the chaos of modern living in a pandemic. If you stay under continued pressure your system goes down and you can get trapped in that exhaustion. You must make space to rest. Carve out time for yourself and protect that time fiercely.
While there is no substitute for rest, these are the five tips, treatments and elixirs to support your return to wellness...
1. Restore Your Sleep
Sleep is critical to our health and overall well-being including maintaining a healthy weight, resilient immune function and emotional wellbeing. These natural herbal elixirs help to calm a busy mind and relax the body to support falling asleep and staying asleep.
2. Find your Seratoin Triggers
Take a break and ground yourself in the moment. That may be focusing on the sunlight against your skin, exercising, having a laugh, being with loved ones, spending time in nature, or pursuing whatever is life-giving for you. Prioritise this.
3. Trust Your Gut
90% of our feel-good neurotransmitter, serotonin is made in our small intestine, and our gut and brain are connected by a bi-directional superhighway called the vagus nerve. So it comes as no surprise to learn that your emotions and thoughts impact your digestion, and equally so, your digestive function and microbiome affect your mood, thoughts and behaviour. These are our favourite gut-health supplements, all blended to include beauty benefits - of course.
4. Massage Therapy
Like medicine for the body, calming the nervous system can help your body recalibrate. Massage works to reduce tension and anxiety while improving circulation and moving fluid through the lymphatic system.
Relax and rejuvenate your entire body with our signature massages.
5. Skincare IS Self Care
Those 5-10 minutes at the start and end of your day can become a nurturing ritual of self-care. Dedicate the time to nourish your skin while re-connecting breath with your body. Be intentional with your cleansing, serums and moisturizers, adding massage with your fingers or a tool. And once a week, indulge your skin with a mask treatment.
