10 simple acts of self care that you should treat yourself to this evening

Let’s be honest, the past few months have been hectic, and we haven't had a chance to properly take time for ourselves and relax.

We've loved the Christmas events and spending extra time with loved ones, but life can still get overwhelming sometimes and we really do like the calmness that January brings. 

That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of 10 simple things you can do this evening, as an act of self care, to help make things a bit more relaxing for you.

1. Paint your nails

2. Re-watch your favourite childhood movie

3. Start a new book

4. Light a scented candle


5. Go on a walk

6. Eat some chocolate

7. Do a face mask

8. Change your bedsheets

9. Write your thoughts down in a journal

10. Have a bubble bath
