While these are brilliant ways to spread a little joy, Boots has announced a new lockdown-appropriate present that’s specifically about giving the gift of me time.
Boots has launched an exclusive range of gift cards by Headspace, a global leader in mindfulness and meditation from home.
If you’re not familiar with Headspace, it was one of the first meditation apps in the world and remains a leader in mindfulness training, having reached more than 65 million users in 190 countries.
The Boots x Headspace gift cards, available to buy online from today (10 June), offer six months’ access to guided meditation sessions and are themed into Mind, Health, Sleep and Focus. The gift cards cost £30 and make the perfect present, letting someone know you care while encouraging them to focus on their wellbeing.
Sarah Crawley, Boots UK Director of Wellness, said: “The benefits of mindfulness have become more widely recognised over the years and if you haven’t already started, now is a perfect time to introduce it into your routine. COVID-19 has certainly caused stress for a lot of us so it’s important to take a step back from the chaos and focus on some me-time.”
When we interviewed Clinical Psychotherapist Katherine Ross, who specialises in anxiety, about guided meditation, she told us she’s seeing an increasing number of clients engage with meditation through an online route.
“I'm finding that with the popularisation of a number of apps, clients are actually going out and finding resources for guided meditation off their own backs, having positive experiences and then bringing those experiences into sessions,” she said.
“Obviously it's beneficial broadly for well-being,” she added. “But like mindfulness practice, it focuses attention on the present moment. It takes people out of their heads; out of spiralling thought patterns that they can become caught in.”
