After the last 18 months, we’re all in need of some TLC

As things start to get back to normal, we can begin to look forward to getting to the great outdoors, adventuring with friends and family, and simply living life again.

We’ve all experienced strains on our mental and emotional health, especially over the past year, and for many of us, our bodies and minds are ready for a break.


Whether it’s a break from work, studying or just from everyday life, we all need to find that balance to live a healthy and fulfilling life, and sometimes a weekend just isn’t long enough. If you’re finding it difficult to focus, are snappy and irritated, keep making careless mistakes, it may be a sign you need to take some time to relax and recharge.

If you’re constantly feeling out of sorts, whether from a heavy workload and stress or due to a lack of the right vitamins and minerals in your diet, giving yourself a break in the short term will make a massive difference to your overall wellbeing.

Here are a few things you can do to ease the strain and feel better:



Make time for yourself everyone has their own likes and dislikes, and whether you live with a partner, parents, or other friends and family, it’s essential to make time for your hobbies, even if no one else shares them. Whether it’s art, exercise, reading or playing video games, prioritising yourself and your needs every so often will help you feel more like yourself. Exercise 
depending on who you are, a workout is either the best or worst thing to think about when it comes to self-care. But there’s no denying that getting the blood pumping and the oxygen rushing through your body means you feel energised and rejuvenated, not to mention the physical and mental health benefits that come with it.

Spend time outdoors, 
spending time with Mother Nature has proven to improve mental health and reduce stress. Not only will you feel refreshed, but it’s also a reason to connect with friends and family to go for picnics, on hikes, and visit new places.


Take a digital detox
Constantly comparing yourself and your life to that of influencers can become addictive but also creates anxiety, paranoia and depression. It’s hard to remind yourself that no one’s life is perfect, and a lot of what you see online is fake. Taking breaks, whether it’s a month-long digital cleanse or putting daily limits on how much time you spend on your phone, will massively improve how you feel and will help recharge your mind.
Restore your balance
Proper nutrition plays a huge role in defeating fatigue and providing you with energy to go about your day. However, it’s also important to treat yourself and not confine yourself to a specific diet. A meal out with friends or a mouth-watering pudding after dinner is always worth it!
Get more sleep
There’s nothing worse for your mood than when you feel tired. Getting enough sleep will ensure you don’t feel exhausted all the time, which means you can make the most out of the day. Having the same bedtime and wake-up time will get you into a good routine that your mind and body will thank you for.
Go on adventures
Travelling with friends, partners or family to new destinations is great for a sense of adventure, to get fresh air, and to have an overall great time! There are some truly exceptional places here in the UK to visit.
Set boundaries
The pandemic has blurred the lines between work life and personal life more than we could have imagined with many working from home offices. Setting boundaries for the time you finish work will ensure you spend quality time with yourself and those around you.
Now restrictions are lifting, this Spring and Summer is the perfect time to recharge your emotional and physical batteries. So, take those opportunities to explore the UK with loved ones, watch that movie you’ve been meaning to see and don’t forget to prioritise your wants as well as your needs.



The above tips are just some of the ways you can recharge your body and mind this summer. However, for an added lift, Lily & Loaf’s natural, nutritional adult supplements can provide a perfect way of complementing your diet to ensure you get the right amount of energy-boosting nutrients you need every day to help recapture your vitality and zest for life.
