Self-care is a funny term – to some people it means chugging green juice, while to others it’s all about bubble baths and scented candles.
We think it can mean whatever makes you feel good, so for this week’s Fit List, we’ve rounded up some brilliant wellness-boosting ideas for you to try.
From relaxing facials and gut-friendly goodies to a festival designed to help your mental health, there are plenty of self-care options out there.
