If there was ever a time to embrace self-care, 2021 is it.

Job losses, health scares, financial hardship and loneliness; you name it, the last year has really thrown us some curveballs.

If you’re feeling strung out, tired or simply a little lost, getting back to basics and treating yourself with something as simple as fresh new set of linen or getting into the habit of daily journaling can really make a difference.

With everyday life seeming a lot busier than normal, it’s too easy to ditch our self-care rituals. However, in order to protect our mental health and operate the best we can, prioritising ourselves has never been more necessary.

Here, we round up the best buys to help put a pep in your step
