5 self care ideas for your mind, body and soul

As the weeks’ have gone by I’ve felt the need to take some time out. To find moments just for me, escapism, quiet time, time to think. Time to reflect. As much as life slowed down as the country went into lockdown, life suddenly got really busy. Does that make sense?

 It has been wonderful to spend more time together as a family, so much quality time. What I’ve learnt is that I don’t need much to be happy. I do know that I need my family.

5. Take a break

It feels so good to get rid of things. Download. To let go. Take a lunch break, a break from social media, from being connected.
