    Love this post! I am definitely going to take inspiration from some of these. Number 1 is my go to every time – but I have been meditating a bit recently with the headspace app and found it really helpful!

    Re-reading a favorite book is definitely one of my faves. I also love a long bath with an audio book.

    Great points. I’ve definitely learnt since doing Yoga that taking care of ourselves is more of a duty than anything else. How can we look after others and be our best selves if we don’t? My favourite self care activities are Yoga and meditation, gaming or watching a series to completely switch off and recharge for a while or having a nice bath!

      It does get difficult looking after the kids if i dont take time out for myself. I love yoga, I must admit I’ve not done any this year so I do need to get back into it. I’m not much of a tv person but I did enjoy a few series on Netflix over Christmas. Thanks for reading Jenny x
