RELAX BEFORE YOU HOLIDAY
Book time in for relaxing to ensure you make the most of your holiday

You know how it goes, you book a holiday and almost as soon as you've unpacked you get a cold. What my time as a massage practitioner taught me is to rest before you holiday. Its the simple 'rest and digest' which is opposite to 'fight or flight'/ stress response so often present in our busy day to day lives.

Take some easy steps to make sure all that's beside you on the beach is a good book and a mock-tail instead of a growing pile of tissues.

1. Two weeks before you go away pamper, relax and re-set, whether its a soak in the tub or a relaxing yoga session followed by a relaxing clay mask take at least 2 hours to really allow your stress levels to drop. Our white light soothing salt soak has been formulated with relaxing plant extracts like camomile, different plant extracts have different ways in which they relax your body, camomile sneaks up on you in contrast to a strong lavender.

2. Breathe. It sounds simple but practicing 3 deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth can set you up with a great tool that can drop you into a more relaxed state whenever you need it.

3. A week before you go book a massage or your favourite body treatment, massage allows your body to truly slow down, during the 'fight or flight' or stress response your body does not reset, it does this while you're relaxing, that's why we can so often get ill while we're on holiday.

4. Pamper repeat! Whether it's prepping your skin or applying deep rejuvenating treatments, indulge yourself, holidays are not the only time your allowed self-care, it can be a rejuvenating part of every week. Self love and selfcare are still misunderstood, not a selfish practice but crucial to power up conscious beauty and empowered living. The more you can relax before your holiday the more enjoyable it will be.

5.  Give yourself plenty of time to pack so that it's an enjoyable process instead of a panic.
