The Sunday Times: How I Relax with Kylie Bellard
How do you unwind?
By lounging in bed or on the couch with tea, a good book, and a fluffy TV show. My current fave is Nashville.
Meditation or conversation?
Do you have a home relaxation zone?
Favourite bedtime reading?
What helps you bathe away your troubles?
Mindfulness meditation. Yoga nidra. My favorite relaxation techniques. Very hot showers.
What’s your chillout soundtrack?
Any music that has Alison Krauss’s voice in it.
What’s your idea of comfort on a plate?
What’s your favourite calming fragrance?
Probably lavender, because my eye pillow has lavender in it, as does the body oil that I make and use. But there are lots of other good smells I find calming, like eucalyptus, baking bread, evergreen, and wet dirt (I’m from Seattle, after all). I’m into good smells.
How do you beat stress?
