Taking care of yourself is one of the most important aspects of living. It's not just about having a bubble bath with scented candles, it's an approach for nurturing your emotional, physical, and mental health. A main part of self-care is recognising when you need to take some time to focus on it, as well as what you can do to look after yourself.

1. Morning Rituals

Create your own morning routine to set yourself up for a successful day. Whether you prefer an early morning gym session in a cute outfit or simply want to spend 15 minutes alone before the mad rush of the school run to journal and enjoy your coffee whilst it’s still hot. Whilst your journaling and sipping at your warm coffee, instead of listing to the radio each morning, why not spin a record instead from Off the Record. Establishing a routine and fostering a positive start to your day can significantly improve your mindset.
