Have a bubble bath
A lot of people underestimate the soothing abilities of the humble bath. Not only is it super warm, comfy, and good for any sore muscles but by adding a bath bomb you can take your bath to the next level! Lush have some amazing luxurious bath bombs and bubble bars which make your bath smell and look incredible. The intergalactic bath bomb is especially amazing and makes you feel like you’re floating in the cosmos. So put on some music, grab a bath bomb, and immerse yourself.
Have a day of Netflix binge watching, find a show you’ve been wanting to watch for a while and sit back and enjoy. To bring it to the next level make sure to be wearing comfy clothes, have a blanket, and a hot drink. Here’s a list of our favourite shows to get you started.

Now, I’m not condoning getting drunk, but you might as well treat yourself to a glass of wine or two. Or if wine isn’t your thing a beer. Or vodka. Whatever kind of drink floats your boat.
Colouring is strangely relaxing and these days there’s so many colouring books created for adults with beautiful and intricate designs for you to colour. If you want to get back to your childhood roots invest in some crayons and colour-in for as long as you want.
A lot of the time we forget to take care of ourselves. Even though a lot of these ideas are quite simple, they’re things we sometimes just don’t have time for. But sometimes you need to just do a few little things to make yourself happy.
