The lead up to Christmas can be a hectic and exhausting time. With Christmas nearly done and dusted, why not take some time to spoil yourself? Set aside some time in the coming days just for you. A little post-Christmas indulgence will see you relaxed and rested, ready to face whatever the new year has to offer. And the best way to do this . . . at MiniJumbuk, naturally we believe this is with some great quality sleep! Good sleep is the ultimate self-care package. If you are unlucky enough to struggle to achieve uninterrupted sleep, a ‘duvet day’ can be a great way to relax, unwind and reset.
What is a ‘duvet day’? For the uninitiated, this is a day of total luxury and selfcare, where it is perfectly acceptable to remain in your pyjamas and in your bed for the whole day! Duvet days are reported to, improve mood and mental wellbeing, boost energy levels, reduce stress, lead to better sleep quality, and help with work-life balance.
With a little preparation you will be set for a day of blissful relaxation - you may even manage a sneaky 40 winks at the same time. The key is comfort! Ensure your bed is so cosy and comfy that you won’t want to leave. Fresh sheets are a must. Change your bed linen the day before. Choose your favourites, and make sure you have enough pillows - you may need extras for napping or to keep you propped up for reading or binge watching your favourite movies. You will also need your quilt or a cosy rug to snuggle down with.
Prepare some scrumptious snacks, you don’t want to spend your day in the kitchen. Strategically position some scented candles or your favourite essential oils ready to create the perfect environment for relaxation. Choose a good book, some soothing music and make your movie selections. A mini spa is also a wonderful inclusion for your day of self-spoiling - think manicure, pedicure and facemask – or any other activity that will enhance your wellbeing.
Then, simply turn off the alarm and enjoy!
