New Year Self Care + Netflix Recommendations

One of my many goals for 2018 was to take more time out for myself and indulge in self-care activities more often. I wanted to share my self-care routine for the New Year and my recommendations for Netflix, so I thought I'd put the two together in one.

A Clean Space | There's nothing quite like a clean space after Christmas- free of any wrapping paper, left over packaging and no Christmas tree in sight. Although I love the festivities, I feel so much better putting away the decorations once they're over and I feel like I can not only relax, but be much more productive too.

Unplug + Unwind | Although the Christmas break offered me some time off that I don't usually take, I still feel like it's important to take time off during January and the months that follow without feeling guilty. I actually want to take some more moments away just for myself; having a bath, pamper and relax. 

Sleep Better | I've been really struggling with my sleep lately, I think it's due to the stress excitement of Christmas and then not being able to settle due to the sudden storm outside. I've been spritzing my pillow with the This Works Deep Sleep Spray and slathering myself up with the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion to help settle me more at night and so far it's slowly getting better again. 

Cook Yourself Something Tasty | I'm currently making my way through my Christmas chocolate, but it's actually meals that I'm more excited to devour. Sweet potato and chickpea burgers, vegetarian toad in the whole (yum!) and Wagamama's replicas. 

Netflix Recommendations | One of my favourite ways to unwind is by either reading a book (I'm currently reading My Not So Perfect Life) or by switching on Netflix. I've taken to putting on a pair of clean PJ's, pulling out a bundle of blankets and gathering my snacks to sit down to watch a new series. Here are my favourites: 

- Mindhunter 
- The Sinner 
- Marcella
- Santa Clarita Diet
- Black Mirror (The new series is out now!) 
- The Returned
- What Happened To Monday
- Gilmore Girls 

How do you practice self-care?
