If you spent the last days of the year listing reams of abstract resolutions, only to know that you'll struggle to keep some (or one) for much more than a matter of days, we're encouraging you to avoid the same trap with our #DailyRetreats campaign - a month dedicated to making small changes that have a big impact on health, beauty and wellbeing. 

So rather than setting yourself unachievable goals - many of which have a negative spin (who's promised themselves they'll 'spend less' or 'lose weight'??) - why not try to enrich every day with something guaranteed to bring the 'feel good' factor? And with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING on all our wellbeing essentials, now's the perfect time to invest in those supplements you read about, or indulge in a special body wash to make your shower like a spa...

If you're stuck for ideas we've compiled a week-by-week 'check list' of suggestions - simple (and sometimes obscure) ways to lighten the January gloom and help cherish mind, body and soul. From switching your mid-morning caffeine fix, to committing to an early night to help ensure you get your full eight hours, our {Instagram} stories are laden with inspiration - some of which are brought to you by Team CB, who're taking a leaf from Cult Beauty's own book and adopting these tactics to ease the post-Christmas come down.

And you needn't spend a fortune! Hold off on buying those sleek running shoes and that branded athleisure (we've all fallen into that trap at some stage) and instead, try to set yourself 'bite size' goals. If you want to feel fitter then why not enrol in a class, go for a jog, or find a free yoga app to see which style of workout suits you and your lifestyle? Set yourself a target and reward yourself when you achieve it - you'll value those snazzy new sports tights much more if they represent three weeks of sweat! 

Or why not dispense with the usual, common-or-garden 'new year new me' philosophy (we quite like the 'old us' thank YOU very much) and instead, make time to actually do the things you love doing the most. If you're a frustrated painter, then diarise time to practise your sketching skills, or if you long to be the next 'Great British Baker' then dedicate a night a week to making cakes (remember, these are promises not punishments!). 

It's all about 'taking a moment'... reminding yourself about what makes you you, and remembering to take your foot off the accelerator every now and then to simply revel in some stillness and allow your mind and body to recalibrate. Life is often overwhelming but a hot bath has the knack of making everything much better (especially when laced with Roques-O'Neil's pink {Himalayan Detox Salts}) and whether you find five minutes or have the luxury of five long, languid hours, we're here to help you make those moments count.

So, ensure you're following us on {Instagram} - don't worry, we won't bombard you (digital downtime is one of our 'things') - and maybe embrace good ol' pen and paper to outline all your favourite pastimes. Free time is scarce and to be cherished so make sure you're spending yours on all the people and pursuits that matter most.

And keep an eye on the {site} and the blog, where we'll be launching a swathe of new supplements, elixirs and intensive treatment masks (we're all about the pampering), as well as interviewing specialists from several different fields - from aromatherapy to nutrition - to bring you tips and tricks for lifting spirits, enhancing energy and restoring your joie de vivre. Here's to a magical 2018!
