Should you be one of those people that frequently fob off this life-changing process, now there is no excuse. Headspace is one of a few apps developed specifically for you – teaching you how to meditate and get in the zone and generally become more mindful. This app is well worth the money and time.

There’s nothing quite like a bit of luxury and pampering to make you feel special, happy and generally uplifted. And there is nothing like slipping back into silk to help you accomplish this incredible state of being. Grab yourself some silk pillowcases and sheets and also the eye mask and PJs.Basically, go the whole hog. I was sent this pillowcase to review a long time ago and it remains my all-time favourite possession (I suspect this will never change).

However, let’s not forget the importance of a cosy blanket. Winter nights are drawing in so to make sure you have all you need, bag yourself an anti-anxiety weighted blanket and keep it at the bottom of your bed for those colder nights (or times when you need that extra comforting).
