Your 2024 Wellness Toolkit

Welcome to your 2024 wellness toolkit. The start of a new year is often a time to think about what you’d like the new year to bring. This is exactly what we’re doing at RY. We’re taking time to review our wellbeing offering and reconnect with our wellness ethos. 

With that in mind, our aim is to help you create your own wellness toolkit here at Restoration Yard. Whether that be with retail therapy, social interaction or even a good bite to eat. Let us help you find your wellbeing.

Feel good fashion

Looking good and feeling good tend to go hand-in-hand. By this we don't mean your physical appearance we mean CLOTHES! Putting together a great outfit that exudes your personal style, makes you feel great. If you're in need of some styling inspiration head to our Instagram for fashion reels a-plenty.

It has been scientifically proven that buying something new can increase the release of endorphins, which are your bodies natural painkillers. So show yourself some much deserved love with a self-care shopping excursion to the in store sale at Restoration Yard, with 30% off selected fashion lines!

The power of scent

Do you remember the smell of mums cookies in the oven, the ocean from summer holidays past, or fresh rain on spring grass? Scent is a very powerful tool, it triggers memories and feelings allowing you to re-experience an event in your past. That's why we think the smell of your space should be a key component of your wellness toolkit.

Perhaps you work from home, or are partaking in the January urge to clean and gut out every corner of your house. Add an RY diffuser, candle, soap or essential oil to your toolkit list. The Store is brim-full of beautiful home fragrance options that you won't find everywhere.

Time to re-connect

After the busy festive period many of us find that our January calendar feels a little empty. We say fill it with foodie catch ups galore. Food brings people together, and here at Restoration Yard we have more than one way to enjoy foodie delights with the ones you love.

Head to The Kitchen for breakfast, brunch or lunch with the whole family. Plan a bestie day out with a meet up at The Coffee Bar for a hot drink and big slice of home baking. Come springtime opt for a visit to The Larder with your four legged friend for some takeaway ice cream. Why not pair your foodie excursion with some fresh air? Located within Dalkeith Country Park, Restoration Yard is the perfect start point for a little jaunt in the great outdoors.

Something to look forward to

Activities to look forward to are an absolute must for your 2024 wellness toolkit. Whether that be discovering a new hobby, booking an upcoming event, or planning a self-care day out just for you. If Christmas teaches us anything, it's definitely that looking forward to something can be almost as good as experiencing it!

Numerous studies suggest that having something to look forward to boosts your mood and lowers your stress. So what to get in the calendar you ask? A self care day at Restoration Yard filled with retail therapy, foodie delights and a stretch of the legs is a fail safe. If you're a foodie lover and are looking for a new hobby to tackle at the weekend we suggest trying The Bottled Baking Co or opt for an Italian discovery with one of these delicious hampers.

For those looking to celebrate Galentine's or Valentine's Day, get your plans booked now for a indulgent evening in The Kitchen for Valentine's Day Dinner.
