Spring Self Care Tips
Spring is in the air here in #AccessibleCornwall and the changing of the season is the perfect reason to indulge in some self care. Today we thought we’d share with you some of our top spring self care tips, enjoy!
Take a Walk Outdoors
We are so lucky to live in Cornwall, with so many beautiful beaches and woodlands to explore. There are plenty of accessible places to visit too! Winter rain, cold and darkness make getting outdoors less than enticing but with spring around the corner there’s no better time to get out and about. Taking a walk in the fresh air does wonders for our mental and physical wellbeing and taking a moment to smell the fresh daffodil fields will always leave you with a smile.
Read Your Favourite Book
It’s easy to get caught up a busy lifestyle, prioritising work, career progression an promotion. It’s important though to make time for yourself, to do the things we love. We all have that favourite book, the one we’ve read hundreds of times. Whether it’s a classic novel, memoir or non fiction, make space in your schedule to read!
Treat Yourself to a Pamper
It’s nice to treat yourself to a pamper every once in a while. Whether it’s a facial, massage, manicure or new hairstyle, it’s great to switch things up. Iconic Hair and Beauty are an accessible friendly salon and the team offer a range of services to suit all your hair and beauty needs!
Cook Healthy Home Cooked Meals
Cooking doesn’t have to be a chore and we all know convenience foods aren’t kind to our waistlines! Even cooking one home made meal a week, using fresh produce can help improve your energy levels and impact on the environment. Plastic pollution is rife and the impacts on our oceans are apparent across the county. Cooking healthy meals as a family enables your children to learn more about different flavours, food and where it comes from.
Journalling is a great way to consolidate your thoughts, particularly at the end of a busy week. There are so many methods to try, from bullet journaling, mind dumping or free writing – there’s something for everyone! Giving yourself time to express your thoughts regularly not only improves your self-understanding, it helps build empathy and consideration for others too.
Catch up with Your Friends
We are all guilty for neglecting our friendships, life just always seems to get in the way! When was the last time you met your friends and caught up, in person, perhaps over a freshly brewed coffee? There are so many quirky places you can visit, including our very own Cafe CHAOS. It’s a great place to meet with friends and they child and dog friendly too!
Create a Summer Bucket List
Spring brings with it an anticipation for summer. We all start looking forward to long evenings spent at the beach. Whether you’ve just moved to Cornwall or have lived here all your life, I’m sure there are plenty of places you still haven’t been. Creating a summer bucket list is a great way to make the most of our county. Dreaming up the crazy things you’ll do in the upcoming months is a great to do with friends and family!
A new season is a great excuse for a fresh start. We’ve all got corners of our homes overflowing with ‘stuff’, floors that need mopping and garages we could probably clear out. Why not take some time to spring clean your home, open the windows to let the fresh air in, hang your laundry outside to dry and roll your marigold gloves up for a deep clean!
