Taking a moment for yourself during a busy day is something we should all try to do. Sometimes finding that calming moment to relax and refocus is all we need to continue our day in a happy and positive way. Here are our favourite ways to unwind...
Nothing beats a cup of tea, and we love Relax Loose Leaf Everyday from T2 (RRP £16.50) with its smooth chamomile base and delicate lemon and floral flavours, its ideal for a your tea break.
The Little Book of Hygge The Danish Way to Live Well from Waterstones (RRP £9.99) has taken the world by storm and rightly so. Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world and Meik Wiking (CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen) has spent years studying the magic of Danish life. In this book he will help you be more hygge: from picking the right lighting and planning a dinner party through to creating an emergency hygge kit and even how to dress. He is committed to finding out what makes people happy and has concluded that hygge is the magic ingredient that makes Danes the happiest nation in the world.
For your home we think the Ragdale Hall Sleep Diffuser from M&S (RRP £15) is a must have. It’s a fragrance expertly blended to create soft floral and herbal lavender infusion. The perfect scent for setting a calming atmosphere.
If you want to have your own spa at home we highly recommend products from the Spa of The World ™ collection from The Body Shop (RRP from £7). The collection features massage oils, Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay and Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath, as well as many others to give you the whole spa experience in the comfort of your own home.
The ultimate relaxing moment can be found at the Clarins Spa in House of Fraser. They have a range of treatments to choose from such as Clarins The Energizing Back, Neck & Scalp Massage (RRP £35), Clarins Melting Honey Hot Stone Massage (RRP £62) and the Clarins Face & Eyes Refresher (RRP £39) which is our favourite. It makes the perfect place for some R&R during your busy day.
