Because what this world needs is love, self-love.
- Turn your phone off.
Do it. You know you want to. Accidentally leave your phone on mute for an hour or twelve days. Not looking at it while you’re sleeping doesn’t count. If you’re lucky, when you pick it up again you’ll have fifteen missed calls, two extra Twitter followers and 9,000 Facebook notifications.
Channel your inner Mary Berry. Make some cookies and forget to turn on the oven and then get fed up, throw the bowl out of the window, sit on the floor and eat the raw dough instead, then stare at a picture of Paul Hollywood*.
- Hunt down Snapple.

- Buy yourself some flowers.
Or steal them from someone’s garden.
- Visit Lush.
Go to your nearest Lush store and buy the glitteriest bath bomb you can find. Go home. Run a bath. Drop it in. Become a unicorn**.
