Guide your wellbeing back to balance with these simple steps, all from the comfort of your home.
1. STRETCH IT OUT
People rave about exercise for health on the constant – but what about stretching? Taking a moment to give your muscles the proper stretch and release they need is a great act of self-care. Whether it be 10 minutes in the morning or at night, stretching is the perfect time to be kind to your body, look after it, and just breathe.
2. DAILY DIGITAL DETOX
It’s hard to switch off with so much changing in the world everyday… but as much as our phones are a great tool of communication, they can also be a great burden – more than we know.
Setting a goal to give yourself at least, 1 hour before bed without a phone is a great way to keep your mind out of the crazy social media world, and more in-tune with your own thoughts and queries.
3. TAKE A MOMENT
This one is a no-brainer, but it’s a no-brainer we seem to keep slipping out on…
With hectic (at home) schedules, it can be easy to just pile, pile, pile more things on the to-do list. Before you know it, you’re running thin on energy, motivation and rest.
We’re making this small act of self-care a total staple this year. Whether it be a bath at the end of a long week, a coffee treat at your favourite cafe, or an easy yoga flow in the morning, each week, make it a priority to take a moment and just slow.

4. GET GROUNDED
Believe it or not, touching the physical earth is something we don’t do enough of – even in life at home.
‘Grounding’ or ‘earthing’ is a practice that looks at touching the soles of your feet onto the grass, sand, or bare earth. Taking your shoes off and walking or standing barefoot for just 5-minutes a days has shown to:
Reduce stress and anxiety
Help ease chronic pain
