Shine bright inside and out. Boost your health and wellness this summer, with these new goodies and tips.
A book to help body and mind
‘Live Well Every Day’ by Dr Alex George, £15.99, sets out seven steps to a healthier life. Waterstones says, ‘Star of Love Island and government ambassador for youth mental health, George provides an invaluable toolkit for both physical and mental wellbeing, viewing them very much as interdependent on each other.’
Do some light exercise
Flying Tiger is full of outdoor games, from this ping pong set, £5, to squash bats with balls, to foldable buckets for playing with sand on the beach. The shop’s full of feel-good factor, with children’s musical instruments (ukulele anyone?), and pet accessories also coming into store.
Oliver Bonas is a hive of wellness: fragrance oils, yoga mat spray, self-care books, not to mention all the picnicware and outdoor living décor. Just a peek inside this colourful paradise will lift the spirits. This Two-Person Natural Willow Picnic Basket (pictured), £59.50, is worth the investment.
Get the buzz
Paperchase’s Bee Happy collection does what it says on the tin. Baking, painting and generally making a mess with kids is fun, plus this kids’ apron, £14, contains a message to save the bees and the trees. The accessories and stationery range lifts hearts.
Get lost in a film
DreamWorks presents 'Spirit Untamed', out at the end of July, which follows a girl's adventure with a wild horse. Julianne Moore and Jake Gyllenhaal are among the cast. Book your tickets at Vue cinema for some much-needed escapism.
