Women’s wellbeing tips for better sleep, reduced stress & balanced menstrual cycles

Pukka’s Herbal Education specialist Holly Huntley, a trained nutritional therapist, shares advice for natural ways to feel your best.

Different routines and lockdown living has brought changes to our lifestyles, some positive and some less so. From different eating habits to reduced sleep (a study by King’s College London found that two thirds of us have been experiencing poorer quality sleep during this time), we felt that it was a good moment for a wellbeing reset. As part of our Make Time with Seasalt and Pukka partnership, nutritional therapist Holly shares her knowledge in a series of short videos.

Feeling calm, uninterrupted nights, balanced menstrual cycles and perfect digestive health: these might all feel like Holy Grail of wellbeing, and for good reason, given the power of stress, insomnia, PMT and bloating to erode our confidence and happiness. There are no magic wand solutions here, but we believe that these tea-break tips contain some gems that might be just the thing you need to feel better.

In our modern lives, with buzzing inboxes and phones, there’s always going to be stress.

From herbal antidotes to quick tips you can practice at your desk, Holly suggests some simple ways to stay calm.
