This April, we’ve teamed up with Mental Health UK and Secret Sales for Stress Awareness week to help increase awareness of stress causes and cures. Now more than ever, taking care of our mental wellbeing is crucial.
In fact, two thirds (59%) of working women say they feel more prone to extreme levels of stress than this time last year according to Mental Health UK’s recent poll. With more and more of us working from home, taking time out for ourselves to de-stress, relax and unwind should be an integral part of your daily routine. Whether it’s taking a relaxing bath, indulging in a face mask or cooking your favourite meal, taking care of our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing can protect our mental health and improve our mood.
With this in mind, we’ve curated a list of our top self-care picks available at Secret Sales. From yoga mats to foot scrubs, here’s everything you need to take a little ‘you time’. Plus, from 12th April to 2nd May, 3% of every Secret Sales order will go straight to Mental Health UK, so you can give back to a fantastic cause while stocking up on your self-care goodies – read on to find out more about this. And we’ve even thrown in a fantastic 10% off at Secret Sales discount code valid for all new customers to help you save too.
