Today marks the birthday of musical hero, reggae master and kind of chill - Bob Marley. In his honour, we'll be trying our best to channel those laid-back feels as we go about our days. Here are 6 ways you can do the same:
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
It’s easy to let the little things get on top of you, especially when it’s Monday morning, you’re running late and you can’t find your keys. But if we’re thinking #WWBD (what would Bob do), the answer might just be to let it all go, and look for the bigger picture. ‘Cause every little thing’s gonna be alright.
Feel the Rhythm
There’s no better way of taking your day up a notch than losing yourself in the music. Go on, stick your headphones in and just go with the beat…
Let's Get Together
At the end of a day of stresses and pressures, sometimes all you wanna do is curl up in a ball as far away from real life as possible. But as Marley taught us, a sure-fire way of raising your spirits is getting together with friends to feel alright.
Get Up, Stand Up
As iconic as Bob was in the world of music, he was just as inspirational in promoting peace and unity, “fighting ism and schism” - as he put it! While it’s difficult to top the power of his music in bringing people together, there’s something we can all do to stand up for love and make the world a little sweeter.
It’s well known that Marley’s true love (other than music of course) was football. Bob thought football was like a whole new universe that made him feel free. You might not have his fast feet, but getting some action, even if it’s just a walk in the park, might just help you capture that sweet escape.
Get Some Love in Your Life
Our latest flavour, One Love, is a tasty tribute to the man himself. Combining banana ice cream, cookie and caramel swirls and chocolatey peace signs, this cool concoction will have you at max relaxation with a single spoonful… and what’s even sweeter is that proceeds help to fund the One Love Youth Camp in Jamaica.
