Here at Closer, we know that life can sometimes get on top of you. With everything that is going on in the world right now, it's more important than ever before to look after yourself and take a moment or two.

We're trying to stay zen, while keep up-to-date with enough news and stay in touch with family. It's tough! On top of all that, you're probably working at home for the first time and trying to regain some sort of virtual social life, dating and maybe, just maybe taking a moment out for yourself.

Soaking in the tub is a fantastic way to relax both your body and mind. Unplug from the rest of the world and leave feeling refreshed.

Connect with nature

Sit in your garden or open your window and listen to the world around you.

Light a candle

There's something really relaxing about lighting a candle and watching the flame dance. Just don't leave it unattended at any point!

Do some cooking

If following lists and repetition helps you to chill out, cooking a meal is a fantastic way to achieve this. Best get chopping...

Watch a film

Re-watch one of your favourites and have a moment to yourself.
