I know that most of us are trying to take extra care of our wellbeing right now. For me, lock down has been a fine balancing act of sticking to a ‘normal’ routine at home to ensure that my mind and body stay healthy yet allowing myself to relax without feeling guilty when my weekends aren’t always productive.
Wellbeck Publishing is kindly offering one of my readers the chance to win a bundle of three wellbeing books focusing on different areas, including how to get a good nights sleep, ways to keep your home tidy with minimal effort and a brilliant journal to help you free up some of that mental clutter that we all carry around and encourage you to be a little bit kinder to yourself.
This book is part interactive journal and part step-by-step guide using life-coaching techniques, easy activities and practical tasks. I like the no-nonsense guidance in this one and it nudges you to dig a bit deeper and address some potential underlying issues that could be subconsciously causing you problems.
With visualisation exercises, goal setting and space for journaling, it’s like having your own little cheerleader on the coffee table and one that I’ve taken to reading almost every day to give me a boost when I’m struggling. I’ll be buying a few more copies of this one to give to my girls and like-minded friends.
Cleaning influencers have certainly seen a rise in popularity and Lynsey is up there with some of the best in the industry. She spent years working as a professional cleaner, is now enjoying fame as an Instagram icon and her book focuses on an easy to follow ‘clean regime’ for every season of the year, containing multiple interactive ’smart lists’, tables and charts.
Again, this is also an activity book to help you set realistic goals and I like the way it’s not preachy; it addresses the fact that most of us are already juggling far too much and doesn’t make you feel bad for not being a domestic god/ess. Lynsey shares the point throughout that housework and chores should never fall on just one person in the household and gives advice on how to get everyone involved.
The tips in this book are genuinely useful and it not only focuses on the act of cleaning but showcases recipes for homemade cleaning products minus the chemicals that many shop-bought ones contain, tips on how to reduce plastic waste in the home, ideas for Christmas festivities, planning summer holidays and just about everything inbetween.
When it comes to falling and staying, asleep, I don’t usually have many issues, however, I can fall into the trap of staying up later than I should and feeling exhausted the next day, even more so when my usual routine is disrupted or if I’m feeling particularly anxious. Backed up by comprehensive scientific evidence, this book explores the lifestyle and medical factors that can trigger sleep disturbances from insomnia, sleepwalking and night terrors to apnoea and narcolepsy.
As well as describing symptoms, it offers simple and easy to follow holistic solutions that can help you banish sleep problems gently and effectively whilst fitting around your lifestyle. I like the fact that it addresses all different situations such as shift working, how to ease babies and toddlers in a sleep routine that suits the whole family, foods that can aid slumber, tackling stress and anxiety before bed and addresses issues caused by snoring.
