Yawn relaxes with Boho Betty

A special treat for you this Valentine’s Day | Competition in collaboration with Boho Betty

Scroll down to enter your details to win a Yawn ‘House Of Cards’ pyjama set, bed socks and beautiful sterling silver ‘Dreamcatcher’ necklace and earrings from Boho Betty’s collection in gold.

It’s wonderful to be in love. You’re filled with energy, have a positive outlook on life and it comes with the added bonus of an increase of dopamine to lower your stress levels.

Highlighting this special feeling - Valentine’s is a time marketed to couples, although without sounding too cringey, we believe loving yourself is just as important.

With the rise in social media and documenting our lives for all to see, many of us are feel at risk of projecting a false lifestyle, whilst secretly still feeling unfulfilled. 

Whether life is going swimmingly or your feel like everything is completely out of control, it is always important to remember to continue focusing on keeping yourself happy. We recently had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Red Magazine columnist and advocate of ‘self-celebration’ Sarah Powell who shared with us how, “self celebration acknowledges, supports and celebrates who you are right now. It bypasses the modern day pressure to have more and be better and instead offers a quiet and brilliant support tool in your back pocket at all times, cheering you on.”

Rather than focus on everyone else this Valentine’s Day, jewellery and accessories brand Boho Betty have collaborated with Yawn to help encourage you to set aside time to focus on your goals and daily successes this month.

Here are some tips from the team to learn how you can celebrate your wins this Valentine’s Day and the rest of 2019:

Celebrate the small successes in life on a daily basis

“As people we achieve a lot each day. Acknowledging the small wins in life is just as important as the big ones. If your default thinking is negative, positive self-talk on a repetitive basis will override this, leaving you to feel much better in the long run. Caught the train to work just in time, celebrate. Didn’t spill a drop of coffee down your blouse all day, celebrate!

It’s not about huge transformations – it’s focusing on who you are on that day and as you feel better, better things will come.”

Imogen Wallis, Yawn Marketing & PR Manager

Treat yourself and appreciate the journey

“Entrepreneurial life often feels like being on a rollercoaster.  At the beginning of Yawn I was really bad at switching off.  I felt myself getting quite anxious if things weren't going right.  Now I have learnt to be a bit more calm in my response to situations and kinder to myself.   I really just try and enjoy the journey and the people on it with me.  

I also try not to wear "being busy" as a badge of pride - it certainly wouldn't help my kids if I was forever frantic.  I have got better at saying no to things and carving out time for just doing not much at all - nothing days are often my happiest moments with family and friends.

Finally - I feel less guilty about treating myself.  Whether that means half an hour extra in bed in my Yawn pyjamas, seeing a great friend for dinner or going to a gym class these are now the little things in my routine that help me keep happy and well.”

Alice Whiteley, Yawn MD and co-founder

Accept your mistakes and learn from them

“Constantly criticising yourself or reviewing a mistake made in the past is not productive or going to help you learn and move on. As you’d respond to a friend, show compassion and forgive yourself, you are only human. Take what you’ve learnt from the past and apply those lessons to new opportunities that you can grow from and feel better about.“

Marina Norman, Yawn Operations Manager

Keep smiling

“I’m a strong believer in ‘a smile can make a stranger’s day better’ and that goes for ourselves too. I always try to find the humour in a situation. It makes life just a little bit lighter.”

Tania Buckley, Boho Betty Co-founder
