The Benefits Of Having A Routine


It can be overwhelming when you step back and think about your day.

Up early, work, hitting the gym, or a run or bike ride, getting the steps in, cooking, kids, housework… it’s a lot! 

The build-up of all the to-do’s and knowing they are there waiting for you adds weight to your shoulders, and the pressure can sometimes be too much. A heavy load can also cause stress, depression, insomnia, and other health-related problems.

So, what can we do? What can we introduce to our daily life to make the whole thing smoother? Of course, we’ll still have daily tasks, but how can we ensure they don’t influence us mentally? Routine, that’s how. 

Routine can sound boring, like it’s no fun; you do the same thing repeatedly, following the same path. But let’s talk about that path.

What if that path took you to a place of comfort, a place where your mind could concentrate on the tasks at hand, the jobs you needed to complete, but could also free you of the crushing weight and pressure that comes with the swamp of the hustle and bustle of life? What if following that path gave you structure, allowing you to make the most of your time and establish healthy habits, which can be important when areas of your life feel uncertain? When you are submerged in strain and stress, what if that path leads you to a place of calm where you can gather your thoughts and have the time to think? The path sounds good!

Creating and following a routine can be invigorating and make you feel powerful! Research has proven that having a structure and a routine can play an important role in ensuring your mental health is on the right track and can help with anxiety and stress. In addition, focusing on the things you can control and manage your behaviours will make your life much easier to handle daily.

It doesn’t have to be difficult.

• Waking up early and exercising start your day off right. Maybe take a fresh air walk in nature.

• Eating healthily at set times throughout the day.

• Set realistic goals and stay positive.

• Make a list, write down the days jobs and take pleasure in ticking them off when you’ve accomplished them.

• Rest. Slow down, maybe read a book. We recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear. This book will reshape the way you think about progress and success and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits into a routine you’ll call your new life.

• Get to bed early. Poor sleep worrying about what you didn’t get done today and what you must do tomorrow is not good for your body or mind. Without a decent night’s sleep, you’re always playing catch up with no energy for what’s ahead. 

Plus, don’t forget to add a bit of ‘you time’ into your daily routine. Make sure you carve out time to do what makes you smile, feel good… and look good!

>Cleanse:

Cleansing is the first step of any good skincare routine. Wake your face up with our Cleansing Face Wash, which will revitalise your skin and hydrate it, ready for the day ahead.

>Exfoliate

Prepare to experience smoother-than-smooth skin. Our Deep Cleansing Exfoliant will rejuvenate and purify your skin, leaving you with a fresh complexion. A deep dive into your pores will leave your skin free of built-up grime and glowing as a result of the essential oils, which will nourish and repair. Use again before bed and allow your skin to regenerate and renew while you sleep.

>Moisturise

After you have cleansed and exfoliated your skin in the morning, it’s time to feed it some moisture. Just a little of our Revitalising Moisturiser in the morning will give dull skin a glow and keep your skin hydrated for the day ahead. That healthy feeling of freshness and nourishment is a winner in making you feel good, and your face look better! Using it again at night before bed will seal the goodness, add moisture, and regenerate your skin while you sleep.
