In this crazy busy world we all need a bit of chill time. A bit of you time.

Something i have been realising recently is 'you can't go all the time'. we need time to stop, look after ourselves and just take a few breaths.

I am so excited to working with Sentosa “Peace & Tranquility” to offer you two holistic taster days.
Tuesday 25th June and Saturday 13th July 10am- 2pm

A day for you - This will be day for you to take time for yourself, come along and find out more about how holistic treatments can help with relaxation, support you with various health related issues, such as stress, anxiety and muscular tension, or as a support for your yoga or meditation practice, to name a few. Holistic alternative treatments, with the use of natural oils, are a great benefit and support to overall well-being.

The day will consist of a 20 minute time slot for each person, to have a taster treatment, with time to ask questions and gain information for individual health requirements.

You will also be able to enjoy a hot drink and cake for just £3.50, giving you time to sit and relax following your treatment, taking a little time for you, or why not catch up with friends and family, doing something for you and your well-being.

Reducing plastic waste

Tip #5

BUY A REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE!!!

This is a biggy!
It’s something we all know we should do but still we reach for the convenient plastic bottles.
So here’s some facts about the average water bottle consumer.

It might surprise you to know the average person uses 150 a year... that's nearly three a week.

In the UK, it’s estimated that 38.5 million plastic bottles are used every day(yes that’s every day!), yet of these 15 million are not recycled. It’s not only bad for the environment, it’s also bad for your wallet.

How many plastic water bottles do you grab on the go?

Buying a reusable water bottle not only will it save you money in the long run, carrying a refillable water bottle means you’re more likely to drink the recommended one to two litres of fluid a day.

I would recommend splashing out on a good one. A pretty one. One you want to take out and reuse.

I brought mind 2 yrs ago for £20. It’s made of metal and keep its ice cold for hours. Being metal also means I don’t get that nasty plastic taste. Yes that might seem like a big one off spend. But how much have I saved?

3x bottles a week
Average bottle £1

3x£1= £3 x 52 weeks= £156 x 2years = £312😱

And what size plot of Indonesia’s land would 312 plastic water bottles fill??

And let’s just say you are a family of 4.
That could save you £1248 a year!!

You can refill you bottles near enough anywhere now. There are filtered water station all over the country.

And if you don’t want to pop into a random shop to ask them, download this app to find your nearest refil station. Or look for the refill sticker on shop windows.

You will be surprised where does fill up now a-days. You are welcome to come into Eat.Love.Yoga and fill up you bottle at any time of the day.

Reducing plastic waste

Tip #4

Out and about

One of the hardest places to cut out plastics is when your out. Wether it’s a lunch while at work, a festival, picnic or a day out.

With meal deals and takeaway options pretty loaded with plastics. But when you need food and drink on the go there is no other choice.
They have cut back on sandwich wrappers that now come in boxes and takeaway cups that are biodegradable.

But what can we do??

So here at Eat.Love.Yoga we have a ‘heading out survival kit’

Bamboo cutlery
Metal straw
Reusable sandwich bag
Keepy coffee cups in 2 sizes 14oz and 12oz

The sandwich bag isn’t just a sandwich bag. It can be used to keep anything in. Even the cutlery after use.
I had a lady in the shop who used hers for damp reusable wipes for her children.

You can prepare a sandwich before you head out or give it to the shop you are buying from for them to put the product in. (Greg’s is a big one here 😋)
And when you get home wash or wipe it out and then your ready for the next day.

The cups and sandwich bags come in many lovely patterns or plan if you profer.

At the moment I don’t offer reusable water bottles but I will refill at the shop any bottles so you don’t have to buy another disposable bottle. Just pop in and use our sink.
It tastes as good as the bottled stuff, I promise.

Your every day essentials sorted.

One step closer on our reducing waste mission.

Good luck warriors.
