"Bread baking, I've learned myself, is a good thing to do if you are feeling under any kind of pressure," writes Roly.
"The relief of immersing myself in a creative process, of surrendering control to the yeast, of being attentive, without worry or anxiety - and at the end of the day, having made something delicious to eat - was life-saving."
Roly added: "When times are bad, this mental and emotional reset is better than anything."
"Studies show that paraffin candles release harmful chemicals," said a spokeswoman for candlemaker Holistic London. "These can cause problems which affect your skin and health. Many of the fragrances used can be just as dangerous if they're not natural.
"Often overlooked the wick could be another problem as it can leave fumes when made from non-natural materials such as natural cotton. Holistic London searched far and wide for organic and non-toxic alternatives. We realised the need for well-designed, natural and healthy candles."
Candles have long been associated with helping to boost relaxation. Candle-gazing is practised to calm thoughts and emotions, while Trataka - a form of tantric meditation - involves staring at a single point, such as a candle flame, to control a restless mind.
WRITE IT DOWN
"If you are not working at the moment or your weekly hours have been decreased due to COVID-19, you may be tempted to oversleep each morning. Sleeping more than seven to eight hours per night can make waking up on time much more difficult, even if you use an alarm. Oversleepers may also feel groggy, irritable and unfocused throughout the day."
Advice from The Sleep Foundation includes creating a schedule to your day - and that includes showering and getting dressed even if you aren't leaving the house and eating meals at the same time each day.
Other tips are to avoid using electronic devices for an hour before you go to bed. This is because the blue light produced by electronic devices, from mobile phones to tablets, and computers, has been found to interfere with the body's natural sleep-promoting processes.

Making changes to behaviours and your environment can lead to better sleep according to James Wilson - aka The Sleep Geek .
James suffered from insomnia from a young age which prompted him to train as a sleep practitioner as an adult. With his company The Sleep Lab, he now helps children, teenagers and adults solve their sleep issues, providing a programme individually tailored to their personal needs. The Sleep Lab even works with companies to solve employees' sleep issues.
James encourages people not sleeping well to understand their sleep pattern, make simple behavioural and environmental changes to create the ideal environment to sleep in and
build a personal sleep plan. James has some quick tips to help with sleeping during the Coronavirus outbreak in the video below from his YouTube channel.
CONCENTRATE YOUR MIND WITH SCANDI-NOIR
It's easy to multitask while watching a film or TV series. How many times do you find yourself checking social media or browsing a magazine at the same time?
Allow your mind to concentrate on one thing and fully escape by watching a foreign film or programme in a language you don't speak, where it forces you to focus on the subtitles and screen - so you can't do other things at the same time.
You'll not only find you enjoyed it more because you were fully immersed in the story and details but it will help you to relax your mind too.
