In the chaotic tapestry of our daily lives, taking a moment for self-care is not just a luxury but a necessity. What if we told you that you could enhance your well-being and strengthen the bond with your family through rejuvenating rituals? Join us on a journey of self-discovery and shared experiences as we explore holistic self-care ideas that combine relaxation, mindful activities, skincare, and the joy of doing it with your loved ones.

1. Home Workout Together:

Physical well-being is a crucial aspect of self-care. Choose a workout routine that suits your fitness levels and preferences. Whether it's yoga, dancing, or a simple home workout, exercising together can be a fun and energising activity. Some families work some magic and even get their three-year-olds to join their yoga practice; however, it's not usually a very restorative flow. You could use the Wii with the kids!

2. Cook and Enjoy a Healthy Meal:

Bond over a nutritious home-cooked meal. Choose a recipe together, gather the ingredients, and enjoy preparing a delicious dinner. If you like, you can pop a bottle of wine, some people even put it in the food! Cooking together fosters teamwork and communication, and sharing a wholesome meal enhances the overall sense of well-being. 

3. Mindful Meditation:

Create a tranquil space in your home for meditation. Sit comfortably with another family member, focus on your breath and clear your mind. You can use guided meditation apps or enjoy the silence together. Meditation not only promotes relaxation but also strengthens your connection.

4. Relaxing Spa Night:

Transform your bathroom into a serene spa retreat. Fill the tub with warm water, add your favourite bath salts or essential oils, and soak away the stress. We suggest a lavender or citrus oil to help you drop into the mood. Invite your partner to join you for a calming bath, complete with soothing music and candles. Cleanse your face before you hop in the tub, and apply our Hydrating Gel Mask to your face while you relax. Let all the Certified Organic goodness work its magic. Afterwards, nourish your bodies with a body moisturiser like Body Balm

5. Memory Lane Journey:

Take a stroll down memory lane by creating a scrapbook together. Gather old photographs, ticket stubs, and mementoes from your time together and reminisce about the moments that have shaped your relationship/family. As you sift through the memories, share stories, laughter, and even a few tears. Get creative with your presentation, adding personal touches and captions to each page. This collaborative project allows you to relive cherished moments and strengthens your connection as you reflect on your journey together.

6. Gardening Together:

Connect with nature by creating a small garden or tending to indoor plants. Gardening is a relaxing and rewarding activity and provides an opportunity to nurture something together. Planting flowers, herbs, or succulents can add a touch of greenery to your home and lift your spirits. Also, if you discover one kid who always finds an excuse to get online, get them to use this time to research. Find out what fruits and vegetables you could have the most success with in your garden considering the way it's facing, the time of year, budget, etc.

7. Creative Expression Night:

Expressing yourself through art can be a therapeutic and enjoyable self-care practice. Set up a designated creative space with art supplies and embark on a joint artistic venture. Whether painting, drawing, crafting or creating terrariums, allowing your creativity to flow can be a fulfilling and mindful experience. You could also step out and join a life drawing class!

8. Tech-Free Quality Time:

Unplug from screens and spend quality time together without distractions. Whether it's playing board games, having a heartfelt conversation, or simply enjoying a quiet evening, disconnecting from technology allows you to be present with each other. A family favourite of ours is Guess the Animal! One person stands up before everyone and pretends to be an animal while the rest of the family guesses! You start without noises, and then if it's still too difficult, you can add sounds. We're not sure there's anything more restorative than shared laughter.


As you can see, self-care and wellness can take many different forms. No matter your choice of activity, we hope that when it comes to skincare, you choose a Certified Organic, 100% toxin-free product like ours.
