Now's The Time To Support Small Business

July 14, 2021


Hey Scrubbas, I'm interrupting the Self Care Series because things are getting a bit dire out here. This time of the year is always a bit harder on local and small business, but with the recent COVID outbreaks bringing restrictions and lockdowns, shopping centres are ghost towns, markets, spas and attractions are closing, and restaurants are only able to do take-away. We are so lucky to be in Newcastle and keep our doors open to trade but these are scary times for so many small business owners, so we wanted to talk about some of the ways everyone can help out.

This is not just about money, although that is the root of it, there are ways you can support your small business owner friends, even if you’ve not got a lot going on in the finance department yourself.

You can share their social media posts, and maybe one of your friends or family members will see it, think “Oh, that’s exactly what I need!” and place an order. Woo! When you share our posts, we are so so grateful, it doesn’t matter if you have 23 followers or 23K.

Alternatively, a lot of businesses have at least one sort of buy now, pay later option in place. Maybe start planning for that loved one’s birthday, or why not be super organised and start getting Christmas presents sorted. Even purchasing a gift certificate to be used at a later date is super helpful.

We here at Scrubba Body love the small business community we have around us. From the friends we’ve made at markets around Australia, to our stockists - who are all small businesses, and we want everyone to pull through this year (with most of our mental health in tact and our bills paid!).

 A lot of people are in the same boat and we feel you! But if you do have a bit of disposable income Here are our stockists, anything purchased from them, helps a small business.

Mental Health is a massive part of self care, some would argue it is the most important part. Right now there is a mental health crisis happening in Australia, making it very hard to get into a psychologist or psychiatrist.

When I say clean it up, I don’t mean your language, just your surroundings. This might be pretty self explanatory to some of you, but I know there a few people who might need a reminder. As well as cleaning unwanted dust (which is 75% dead skin cells ew), bacteria and germs, and just plain old rubbish. Cleaning your house is proven to lift your mood as well. You don’t have to do it all at once, but here are a few things to tackle when you get some time. Aim for one per day off. I’ve been doing this over the last few weeks and it’s really helping me enjoy my space and my belongings more.

I feel like it’s something we’ve been hearing for our whole lives, ‘Get more sleep’ but sleep hygiene is an often overlooked part of everyone’s self care regime that we all need to try a little bit harder to conquer. Personally, I’ve had insomnia since I was very very young so anytime there is an article on how to get better sleep, believe that I have read it and tried it. And all the fads, tried them too. Here are the ways that I know will help you on your way to great sleep hygiene and better overall self safe.
