We know that the news of lockdown 2.0 in the UK and the different restrictions around the world can feel very heavy.
That’s why we want to bring you a little bit of sunshine, over the next month we will send weekly emails and post blogs to help to lift you up. Keep your eyes peeled as we will also be announcing some exciting Instagram events and exclusive discounts too.
This week we are sharing some feel good tips and a tasty recipe...
Lockdown has definitely added more stress to life than usual, and it can be really hard to find the motivation to do things, or feel grateful.
When we’re feeling stressed and anxious it can sometimes feel like our head is spinning, one thing that has been proven to help these feelings is keeping a journal.
There’s lots of different ways to journal, one way is to keep a Gratitude Journal. You don’t have to write a lot but you could try to write three or more aspects of your life you’re grateful for, even the smallest of things.
It’s been proven to be a really helpful way of relieving stress because it helps you to focus on the good things in your life, plus you can also flick back through it and cheer yourself up and remind yourself of these things!
Grab a pen and pad and you're good to go!

Have you tried Mandala practise? Maybe you've seen it on the yoga timetable but you're not sure what it is?
Mandala is a Sanskrit word that translates to circle, essence or competition. They are often seen as geometric circles that can help to focus meditation. The practise combines the elements bringing specific movements designed to help your yoga flow.
We’ve created a new Mandala Mat combining these magical elements, designed for mandala practise that’s complete once you bring your movement it as the fifth element.
The mat brings together earth, air, wind and fire. The fifth key element being you!
Next week we will be sharing more love and also revealing a special offer with a brand that we love...
