Sisters Gracie and Sophie Tyrrell are the founders of Squirrel Sisters, a health and wellness company on a mission to help people make better and healthier choices more often. Their award winning on-the-go bars double up on flavour and are packed with real, honest, good-for-you ingredients with natural fruit sugars and are available in 4 delicious flavours: Cacao Brownie, Cacao Orange, Raspberry Ripple and Coconut Cashew.
Yes to delicious, no to compromising.
They set up Squirrel Sisters to ‘treat their health’, something we could all do a little more of! So to celebrate this self-care ritual, we asked our community members to tell us how they like to treat their health.
Emma Green – Intuitive Eating Coach
I try to get to a yoga class once a week as I find it so helpful to unwind. Hot yoga is my favourite because the heat helps me to stay present and allows my muscles to loosen up more quickly.
I also like to have a few hours of full-on pampering full once per week. I try to stay off social media, pop on a face mask and have a long shower or bath. It’s a bit cliche but it’s always worked for me.
I also take time on a Sunday to journal and reflect on what went well that week and what I want to work on for the week ahead. Although this helps from a productivity perspective, I primarily do it to ease the Monday morning stress and give me a few key things to focus on to stop me getting overwhelmed.

I adore reading – have done since I was a wee one! I consider this prioritizing health because it is the way I relax, tune out from work and wind down for bed: 3 things that I feel are key for wellness!
I’m currently reading People Like Me by Lynn Ruane and I’ll be keeping a log of my 25 reads of 2019 on my blog.
Siobhan O’Hora – Food Blogger
I prioritise the quality of my food, especially when it comes to snacks. I know how important nutrition is, so even when I’m really busy and can’t make any snacks myself, I make sure I choose the right ones. When I’m really stressed I try to focus on keeping up my immunity so I don’t get run down.
