Calm your nervous system with this 4-7-8 breathing exercise performed whilst sitting up straight. First, place your tongue against your gums right behind your front teeth. Then, completely exhale through your mouth to make a whoosh sound. Close your mouth and quietly inhale through your nose as you begin counting to 4. Following this, hold your breath and count to 7. Finally, exhale completely throughout your mouth and count to 8.

Boost your body, mind, and soul with a little bit of TLC on your Sunday.
“It’s so much easier to maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual good health than regain it” - Megan Larsen, Sodashi Founder.
There’s no one size fits all approach to self-care, but we’ve put together our favourite tips to replenish you for the new week ahead:
1. Digital Detox
If you’ve been a bit embarrassed by your Weekly Screen Time report, we don’t blame you. We could all do with a little digital detox and those notifications can definitely wait. If a Sunday binge watch is essential, remove the distraction of your phone by placing it in another room. See how differently you feel after.
2. Start journaling
Put pen to paper and jot down how you’re feeling or thinking at any moment. Get to know yourself better and keep a diary of how this changes week by week. Drawing or colouring is also an excellent way to creatively unwind.
3. Go for a stroll in nature
Make the most of our beautiful weather with a walk outside to clear your mind and heal from the week that was. The fresh air and sunlight are all you need to reset. Why not listen to your favourite playlist or podcast along the way.
4. Re-create the spa experience at home
We all know the rejuvenated feeling you get after leaving a spa massage or facial. Whilst we can’t visit Spa Lucca at the moment, this homemade face mask uses ingredients from around the house: Add 1 tsp. of honey, 1sp of coconut oil, 1/4 of a ripe avocado and 2 drops of lavender oil (optional) and mix into a bowl. Smooth the mixture onto your face using your fingers or a face mask brush. Leave on for 5 minutes and voila!
5. Nourish your body
Fuel your body with nutritional high-quality meals that leave you feeling energised and happy. It’s no secret that the mind and the body are intrinsically connected and with wholesome ingredients we can optimise how we function every day. Get creative in the kitchen with Teresa’s recipe below.
