For The Green Thumbs

You’re a mum. Caring is in your nature, but often are you caring for you?  Take some time out of each day to care for and nurture some plant life. Whether it’s the fragrance of fresh botanicals or the satisfying feeling of a gentle mister, like IKEA’s chic GRADVIS mister, there’s something therapeutic about the plant mum routine. 

We’ve also got our eye on the SUCCULENT potted plant! This sleek, modern pot comes with a succulent already growing, so you get to focus on the soothing ritual of watering, pruning and caring for your plant. These cute, little plants are famous for being incredibly low maintenance. That means this therapeutic ritual is more for your benefit than theirs!

For The Zen Gurus

Your New 2pm Rituals: When The Home Is At Its Quietest And There’s Time Just For You | Stay At Home Mum

You spend all day keeping an ear out for screams and bangs and tantrums, so now’s the time to keep your ears open for silence. Find a comfortable spot in your home, or make one with a sturdy yet cosy BASTUA floor cushion cushion pad from IKEA, and simply sit for a moment. Taking in long, deep breaths, listen to the stillness of the house. Enjoy the absence of any noise, chatter or general kiddy chaos.

If you really want to practise mindfulness, take this quiet moment to the next level and engage all your senses. Brew a soul-calming cup of tea with a RIKLIG Teapot. The integrated infuser ensures you get the full body of flavour in every cup. While waiting, light a JÄMLIK scented candle and let the pleasant scents gently fill your home. Aromatherapy is a great way to manage stress, so make the most of your window of tranquillity and cement this ritual into your afternoon routine.

The storage ladder means you can hang your brushes, yarn, artworks and more to adorn it with an aesthetic based on your own creative pursuits.

For The Nature Lovers
