Take an uninterrupted hour
Use this hour to do something you enjoy you may enjoy sitting down and having a read of your favourite book, catching up on blogs or just having time to do your makeup properly. I love to take some time out to have a bath and a mini pamper. There’s nothing better than that super fresh and pampered feeling after a nice hot bubble bath and it’s one of my favourite things to do. I light a candle or two, use my favourite bath products and usually catch up on some YouTube videos too, I always feel so much better after this and it’s something you can do when little one goes to sleep or when your partner is home to take over for a little while.
My favourite candle of the moment is the Neom Scent to Instantly De-stress candle, this is a 3 wick candle and it’s pure luxury and perfection. The candle itself looks amazing doesn’t it? The white frosted glass is so chic and looks incredible in my bathroom not to mention the scent is divine! The Instantly De-stress range is perfect for us mummies that never get a chance to unwind and relax, I always feel so uplifted after using this candle it contains 24 essential oils to instantly calm and ease stress levels, the perfect scent for the end of a busy day.
Another Neom product I have been using to De-stress and relax is the Bath & Shower oil from the Instantly De-stress range, this luxury shower oil can be used directly on the skin or you can mix a capsule into the bath. I have been putting a capsule of this oil into the bath, it smells incredible and lifts my mood instantly. This unique blend has been coupled with rosewood, a comforting and warming oil with a balancing effect on the mind and body and ultra-relaxing lavender. It’s definitely relaxing and I’d highly recommend if your looking for pure luxury to have that quite moment by yourself.
Wake up before the kids
Waking up before Vinny is one of my favourite things to do, although some mornings it can be a bit of a struggle I really enjoy being able to have my morning cup of tea and breakfast in peace it really sets me up for the day in a positive way. I can also get Vinny and Marks breakfast ready in a nice quiet environment, it makes me feel so much better when everything is done before the boys are up and less of a rush indeed!
I never really thought of using music as a way to unwind and relax but it definitely does get me in a much happier mood, we have been having a little dance and music session most days in our house lately and I can say that moods all round have been great! Having a little boogie releases all of those negative feelings and really makes you forget about the stressful five minutes you just had!
Chocolate & Yummy Food
OK so if your really having a bad day then it’s time to get the chocolate out, I know if I’ve had a bad day chocolate definitely makes me feel better for a little while… The feeling doesn’t last too long because then I think to myself ‘oh I have ruined my diet for the day’ but then I think ‘oh well you only live once’ and carry on eating that chocolate and maybe even a bit of cake too! We don’t have bad days every day so enjoy that chocolate and forget about the diet until tomorrow!
