There are 101 (possibly more) stresses bound to modern life, so much so that we often don’t even notice the stress we carry around with us every day. From work, home, money and everything in between, it’s easy to find your shoulders hunching closer and closer to your ears, and a lot harder to bring them down again. Since we don’t always physically see the negative effects of stress, we often overlook how detrimental it is to our health. But here at Ashleigh & Burwood we reckon it’s time to make a few changes. It’s time to squeeze in some much needed ‘me time’ (and refuse to feel guilty about it). You can take 10 minutes, you can take whatever time you have, but even the shortest of weekly pampering sessions has got to do us some good, hasn’t it?
Switching the lights off is the easy part, switching your mind off can prove altogether more complicated. Tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep night after night is frustrating and can negatively impact your day. Equally, the day you’ve had can negatively impact your sleep cycle. Making just a few small changes to your daily routine can help you to get the shut-eye you desperately crave (and no, we’re not going to suggest counting sheep).
It’s official, we’re in the fiery depths of autumn, and from the looks of things, there’s no going back anytime soon. The wind’s blowing, the leaves are golden, suddenly an umbrella has become something we can’t leave the house without “just in case”, but it’s time to embrace it! That’s right, we’re immersing ourselves in all things autumn, and do you know what? It’s not all that bad! Snuggly blankets, all the reality TV you could possibly watch, and even better – the perfect excuse to get crafty! With Halloween just around the corner, there are plenty of little ways to prep your home for the season!
