Why Now’s The Perfect Time To Hit The Reset Button

In a month that drags on for 1025 days, with sub-zero temperatures and next-to-no hours of daylight, ‘gloom’ is a theme that it’s tricky to dodge. Once the thrill of a shiny new year has (inevitably) dwindled, January feels like a time to survive not to thrive but, we’re nothing if not opportunists and so we are treating this month as a chance to ‘reset’: to revisit our rituals, draw a hot {bath} (laced with soul-soothing salts) and to curl up in front of our 25th viewing of SATC with our feet in resurfacing socks (they’re a thing).

We’re urging you to hit the reset button and to hone the art of making home a sanctuary: take a moment to luxuriate in that {mask}, strike a match with a new {flame} or take your routine to the next level with indulgent {tools} that bring the spaaaaah to your space all year long.

So whether you’re {dermaplaning} from the comfort of your couch, committing to a course of wellness-boosting {capsules} or getting into bed with a new sleep-supporting accessory, there’s no better time to kick-start a good habit.

Need inspiration? These top-rated favourites will give you permission to make time for ‘me time’…
