Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

How to Shop More Sustainably

T he Fashion Industry is one of the largest contributing industries to the demise of the environment. Issues like Climate Change, Global Warming and Fast Fashion can all sound quite daunting to you and me, however there are easy ways you can make a difference and help; all by just changing the way you shop. This year for Earth Day we’re helping you do your part, by shopping sustainably. 

Avoid the High Street!

Fast Fashion is the cycle of inexpensive clothing that is rapidly produced and promoted to the consumer by retailers, as a response to the latest catwalk trends.  

High Street shops contribute to Fast Fashion by mass producing new clothing every six weeks or less.  

In order to put a stop to this, you can help by investing in higher quality products from more luxurious brands that don’t follow the toxic cycle of mass production.  

Not only is this more rewarding for yourself, but also more beneficial for the environment! 

Shop Second-Hand

Shopping second-hand is much better for the environment as it gives you a chance to repurpose clothes, rather than sending them to landfill.  

Vintage and second-hand shopping can be the source for some beautiful and individual pieces that give your wardrobe an extra bit of edge. 

As well as this, donating unwanted clothing to charity shops and shopping there is a great way to give back to charities and provide help for good causes. 

If you are looking to sell old clothing or just enjoy shopping online, you can use apps like Depop, Vinted, eBay and Vestiaire Collective to find some real gems! 

 Get Creative!

Instead of buying new clothes, you could always repurpose your current ones. 

You can cut, crop, sew and embellish to make an old and unworn piece of clothing like brand new!  

Not only can this be a new and creative hobby, but it also more sustainable to the environment.
