Last week it was my birthday … I am not a fan of birthdays per say but what I did promise myself was that I am going to finally get some de-stress and wind down time, which also as it happens will coincide with my ongoing journey to achieve a better work life balance
The hype of the summer holidays and the return to school/work has been quite a complex one with stress, anxiety and with no amount of exaggeration there have even been tears so now I am making a concerted effort to de-stress, reorganise and take care a little more of me it seems the perfect time get to just take a few minutes for me everyday.
For me personally for those that don’t follow me already know that I am stress head, a worry wort and complete nightmare at times with my anxiety so making positive steps to de-stress was only ever going to be beneficial for me and by doing it as naturally as possible is only ever going to have my vote.
So this week I have been putting some of the natural products to the test after the folks at Baldwins & Co sent me a wonderful de-stress package.
Learning to take some time out has really helped me focus over the last week I am starting to regain control over me again and I am hoping that long may it continue …. anything that calms and helps me sleep better and be more focused is totally beneficial in my book so I am totally loveing the candle and the Rescue Night Melts.
I really didn’t expect natural products and taking time to pamper me would be beneficial but after this week I am thinking that maybe looking after me doesn’t really have to be as hard as I first thought?!
Do you use natural products at all to de-stress and pamper?
