    Well I bake when I am stressed! It takes away the stress in a jiffy. I think when you do something you are passionate about , it takes away the stress! It can be anything, drawing, reading, listening to music ,etc!

    Hi Siddhi, very cool. Did you follow a recipe?

    Hello everyone! Welcome to the forum if you haven’t been on here before.

    We’re using this platform as a way for all of us to speak to one another. If you have anything you’d like to discuss, please feel free to start a new thread.

    This week, as you’ve probably guessed (ha!), is about sharing tips on how to relax, de-stress and generally look after our wellbeing.

    This live chat will run until 1.30pm, but this thread will stay open so if you come back later you can easily join in on the conversation.

    The first question is quite simply: how do you wind down at the end of a day?

    Siddhi, those checkerboard cookies look divine!

    Funnily enough, as much as I love to eat and write about food, cooking makes me a little bit flustered! To clear my head, I like to meditate. It’s not always possible to fit in ten minutes of it everyday; but some days I’ll take 20 minutes of meditation on my lunch break at Khoollect HQ!

    Aside from that, I like to shake it off by hula-hooping, listening to music and/or just opening a good book and take some time out.

    Are there any other meditators out there?

    For me it definitely has to be a soak in the tub. Ideally with plenty of bubbles or some kind of nice salt soak. Combine that with a magazine ideally one which is more about the visuals then the words and some relaxing music in the background. Heaven!

    I must say some good biscuits, like yours @siddhi and a cup of tea is also an excellent relaxation combination.

    Anybody tried some apps? I gave digipill a go but I found the guys voice a bit too annoying after a while.

    A bath is always splendid! You might like this: a floating sauna! I quite like the idea of getting really hot and sweaty then jumping into a lake = super therapeutic!

    That looks fun, Hannah! As for the apps Rachel, I quite enjoyed Head Space. I usually prefer silent meditation, but this is really helpful for a mind that won’t sit still!

    A friend of mine recommended sleeping to a white noise app but it didn’t work as I found it too distracting. Some people love the sounds of the rainforest and lapping waves but it’s not for me.

    Pyjamas, Netflix and a dominos pizza! Think that’s EXACTLY what I’ll be doing after moving house today. Xx

    I hope the move is going well Lara! Sounds like a plan.

    For everyone on the forum right now, just to let you know that we have a nightwear company called Yawn London coming into the office tomorrow morning at 10 am for a Facebook live chat. They’ll be giving us some tips on how to get a good sleep.

    Does anybody have pets that help them relax? There’s scientific proof that interactions with animals can help people be calmer and I’m a true believer in this.

    My Grandad is a guide dog trainer and often takes his dogs in to universities in exam times for students to stroke them. It’s beneficial for the dogs in training and the people!
