SELF-CARE TIPS IN A POST-COVID WORLD

Around the world we have all experienced what is likely to have been the most difficult few months of our entire lives. Thanks to the outbreak of Covid-19, life as we know it has changed, perhaps irrevocably.
Now that lockdown is easing around the world, you might actually be yearning for new routines and habits. Or perhaps you picked up some new ones over the past few months. I know several people who learned to knit, started painting, making their own beauty products, such as rose water and face masks, while they were stuck indoors.

Psychology of Scent

Psychology of Scent

Smell is pretty unique, compared to the four other senses we humans have. While our other senses communicate directly to the thalamus, which is essentially the ‘switchboard’ in our brain,  scent is processed in the olfactory bulb within our limbic system, which is also where our brain stores memories and emotions, explaining why scent can evoke such intense feelings and vivid memories so quickly.

SLOW LIVING

We designed our products carefully to force people to slow down and take time out of their day, but for years busy women, particularly in metropolitan areas, would tell us they didn’t have five minutes to wait for the Idan oil to melt. I always used to say: “If you can’t find five minutes in your day, you need those five minutes more than you think. Make them".

My lockdown routine as really much followed by general work ethos which is always very much around flow and adapting to what the day brings so I am trying to stick to that.

Abi's Work Home Routine (Of Sorts...)

Abi's Work Home Routine (Of Sorts...)

With Covid-19 changing all our lives I wanted to pen a journal on how lockdown has changed by working and personal life. I’m not as rigid in my work from home routine as some of peeps I’ve seen on Instagram with scheduled water and snack breaks, that’s impossible and improbable with a run year old running around who literally thinks I’m her climbing frame!
