There’s no doubt about it, this year has been a mindf*ck for all of us. And everyone is feeling it in different ways and finding their own ways to cope on a daily basis. As a self-confessed control freak, 2020 has really challenged me in ways I never imagined, and I’ve had to find new things to channel my energy into, to feel like I’m regaining some sense of control and some sense of self.
Paying more attention to my self-care routine has been a sanity saver, and it’s something I now look forward to every day (and is something I’ll take with me post-Rona). Who knew something as simple as popping on a face mask and making myself a hot cup of tea after putting my bebe down for the night, would bring me so much joy? And it has.
My fav brew is Rancho Relaxo from Heart Therapeutics, and apart from tasting yum (thanks to gorge ingredients including lavender, lemon verbena and chamomile), it has the dual benefit of calming my mama mind.
Made in a beautiful boutique apothecary in Noosa, Rancho Relaxo is Heart Therapeutics’ most popular blend (I’m not surprised!). It supports the nervous system, reduces stress related symptoms like anxiety, muscle spasms and insomnia and focuses on a better-quality sleep and a calmer more rested you. Sublime.
Because this beautiful blend is used to invoke peace and calm in the mind and body, it’s also perfect before practising meditation, and obviously it’s a game changer for anyone suffering bouts of insomnia and restlessness.
