Cooking your favorite nourishing meal

 

If cooking is something you enjoy, it can be a great stress reliever. Having to focus on the preparation, ingredients and following a recipe often means there is little time for your mind to drift back to the stresses of the day. Preparing a nourishing dish that is rich in protein and fresh, organic vegetables ensures it is not only nutritious but will also leave you feeling full and satisfied. 

Putting on a podcast you love can also help you unwind. If you’ve listened to all your top podcasts, listening to some uplifting music can be a great mood booster after a busy day. Listening to music has been proven to release endorphins and dopamine, feel-good hormones which also help to alleviate stress and promote a positive mental wellbeing!

A glass of organic wine…

 

Why not pour yourself a glass of your favorite natural wine… Dry Farm Wines offer a more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to conventional wines. Dry Farm Wines only use organic farming, their wines are sugar and additive free, and have lower levels of both alcohol and sulfite than conventional wines. 

Here, farmers rely on natural water sources to ripen their fruit, and do not allow any artificial irrigation to grow crops. This means the roots of the vines grow deep to find a natural water source. It’s better for the planet, better for the vine, and produces nutrient rich fruit. From French villages to the Austrian countryside, all of Dry Farm Wines’ growers use organic, regenerative and dry farming practices.

Evening Skincare

 

Putting aside a small portion of time for your evening skincare routine is the perfect mindful activity that encourages us to slow down, be present and to nourish our skin with natural, organic ingredients. Nighttime is when your skin undergoes its most significant repair and regeneration processes. By applying products like moisturizers, serums, and treatments in the evening, you provide your skin with essential nutrients and active ingredients to support these processes. 

We know the in depth, 10 step routines you see online can be a bit unrealistic for an everyday routine, but even a cleanser, a luxurious moisturizer and an eye cream can go a long way – it can be as simple as that!

1. Cleanse

 

Throughout the day, dirt, excess oil and even environmental pollutants accumulate on the skin, clogging pores which can lead to breakouts and dullness. Cleansers work to dissolve and remove any make up and impurities from the skin, unclogging pores in the process without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Many cleansers also provide an extra boost of hydration, which can be particularly good for those with dry or sensitive skin. 

You can also opt for a targeted treatment cleanser which works to target your specific skin care needs. Featured here is the Vitamin Boost Facial Cleanser by Pelegrims. Ideal for dull and tired looking skin, it’s enriched with Vitamin C to leave you face feeling radiant and rejuvenated. Alternatively the Resurfacing Botanical Cleanser by FaTH Skincare is a deep-cleansing treatment that combines gentle exfoliation with skin-buffering enzymes to thoroughly renew and clarify the skin. Both products are 100% vegan and cruelty free.

2. Moisturize

 

A good organic moisturizer that can be used day and night is a must for any sustainable skincare routine. A moisturizer provides your skin with the essential hydration it needs to prevent dryness, dullness and keeps the skin soft and smooth. Applying your moisturizer on slightly damp skin can help the skin to absorb the product more efficiently. 

The Barrier Restoring Rich Cream by Dr Joseph is ideal for those struggling with a stressed skin barrier and provides immediate relief to particularly dry or irritated skin. By restoring and maintaining a healthy skin barrier, it helps prevent moisture loss and improve the skin’s ability to retain hydration over time.

3. Eye Cream

 

The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, making it prone to dryness, dehydration. Using an eye cream regularly can help maintain the health and appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes. This helps to keep the skin hydrated, plump, and youthful-looking, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

The ECM Advanced Repair Eye Lift featured here by Albiva is infused with caffeine, so is the perfect product for anyone struggling with puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, particularly after a long day!

A Bedtime Tea and Your Chosen Supplement

 

A herbal tea before bed can also help the mind and body to further relax before bedtime. Many herbal teas have natural calming properties and can also help to facilitate a good night’s sleep, while hydrating the body. Herbal teas such as peppermint or ginger can also help to soothe the digestive system and alleviate discomfort or bloating after eating. 

 

Onto supplements – these can be beneficial in promoting a restful night’s sleep and maintaining a resilient immune system. However it’s important to note, they are not intended to replace a balanced, nutritional diet or serve as a substitute for healthy lifestyle practices! 

Sanbera’s wellness range features a daily and nightly dose of wellbeing, designed to improve your habits, create healthy rituals and deliver tangible results for your body and mind. Sanbera supplements are 100% vegan and totally free from animal testing.

Nightly Reload Women is a unique nighttime formula to optimize health while you rest. These nutrient-rich supplements restore the body at a cellular level with powerful antioxidants derived from Cranberry Fruit Powder, Green Tea, Acerola, and Bilberries alongside nine essential vitamins. Each hand-picked ingredient was chosen to strengthen your immunity and regenerate your body, meaning that all you need to do is wake up, feel good, and glow.

Avoiding screens before bed

 

It’s recommended to limit your screen time while you wind down for bed. Actively using phones, computers or watching television before bed means the brain is still being stimulated and kept mentally alert. As well as this, screens emit blue light. Exposure to this can suppress the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. As a result, screens not only make it more difficult to wind down and ‘switch off’ before bed, but it can also disrupt the body’s natural sleep rhythm, leading to irregular sleep patterns.

 

 

Meditation

 

With no phones to distract, this is a great opportunity for one last mindful, self-care activity! This could be some deep breathing or a wind down meditation to further relax your mind and release any tension within the body. By dedicating time to meditation before bed, you signal to your body and mind that it’s time to unwind and prepare for restorative sleep.

 

 

Take a moment to practice some gratitude

 

Other activities such as reading, journaling and practicing gratitude can help you unwind for a good night’s sleep. Research has shown that practicing gratitude has a number of mental health benefits and is a great self-care ritual to get into, when you have time of course! It can be as easy as writing down 5 things you’re grateful for, or 5 things that made you smile that day. It offers an opportunity to reflect on your day and encourages you to appreciate the good things in life, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant! This can help us to stay uplifted, fostering a greater positive outlook on life, while reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety.
