Resetting After Summer: Embracing Comfort, Calm, and Small Changes

Resetting After Summer: Embracing Comfort, Calm, and Small Changes

by Lisa Levi February 14, 2024

The Summer holidays have drawn to a close, and if you’re a parent like us, the school year has begun! As the days become more structured and routines settle in, there's no better time to embrace a fresh start for your home and mind. From establishing designated spaces for school essentials to reintroducing bedtime rituals and carving out pockets of time for a bit of self care, this is the opportune time to create a serene environment that fosters calm and balance for the entire family. 


There's something therapeutic about decluttering and organising your living spaces. Take this opportunity to clear out the clutter of Summer activities and create a serene environment for your family to thrive in. From common areas like the living room and bathroom to bedrooms, implementing practical storage solutions and decluttering strategies can help to achieve a sense of calm and order. The linen cupboard is one place in our homes that often gets chaotic and overlooked. Repurposing damaged sheets and towels or donating gently used items you on longer need, giving everything its own place and repurchasing items that are missing from your collection, can all help you feel organised.

Now that your living spaces have been Spring-cleaned, it’s time to focus on you! One of the easiest ways to feel calmer and clearer is getting a great night of restorative sleep. Transforming your sleep space into a serene sanctuary for restful nights doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. You could refresh your bedding with soft, breathable fabrics like Bamboo or Cotton or introduce soothing colours and patterns for a tranquil atmosphere. Consider replacing your Pillows if they are due for it, or add layers of comfort with luxe throws and cushions. By prioritising your sleep environment, you can cultivate a peaceful oasis that encourages deep, rejuvenating sleep and overall well-being.

Extend the reset of your bedroom to your bathroom! With our busy schedules, sneaking in those moments to ourselves can be few and far between. If your bathroom is separate to the kids one why not create your own little spa oasis. Consider decluttering and deep cleaning your towel collection, replacing tired towels with super soft and natural Bamboo options. Not only do Bamboo Towels pamper your skin, but they also contribute to sustainable living practices, making them an ideal choice for eco-conscious consumers. They have the added bonus of being antimicrobial, antibacterial and moisture wicking. Little added touches like treating yourself to a luxurious hand and body wash and adding candles, aromatherapy or plants to the space can instantly add a spa-like feeling that invites relaxation and rejuvenation. While you’re there, why not fill the tub, make that cup of tea and take 10 minutes just for you.

Transitioning from carefree Summer days to structured school schedules can be challenging for both parents and children. As Mum’s ourselves we know first hand that a little bit of planning and organisation can make a huge difference to the overall flow of our day. We’ve picked up a few tips and tricks along the way to help this transition such as setting up designated spaces for backpacks, uniforms and homework, resetting the kitchen before bedtime and preparing outfits and homework or lunchboxes the night before. As bedtime routines may have become more relaxed over the Summer months, now is the perfect time to reintroduce consistent bedtime rituals. Whether it's reading a bedtime story, practising relaxation techniques, or simply dimming the lights to signal wind-down time, can make the switch from playtime to bedtime smoother, ensuring a more seamless start and end to each day.

(There’s nothing better than waking up to a clean kitchen to start the day. Pictured above our Cotton Check Kitchen Towels.)



During the busy pace of Summer, it's easy to forget about our own well-being. This is your little reminder to carve out moments for self-care amidst the chaos. Whether it's booking that pilates class you’ve been talking about or stealing away for a solitary dip in the ocean, these small acts of self-care are essential for recharging your spirits.

By focusing on simplicity and making small changes, we can create a sense of ease and harmony in our daily lives. Remember to prioritise your well-being amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Take time to pause, reflect, and nurture yourself, allowing moments of calm amidst the chaos, after all, school holidays will be here again before we know it!
