Seventy per cent of British women feel under pressure to be the “perfect woman”, according to a survey by Sanctuary.

Pressure to be the "perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect friend. Pressure to be successful, to be a boss, a leader".

To combat this, the spa has released a video featuring older women urging the younger generation to "relax, breathe and let go" every once in a while and revealing the things they wish they'd spent more time doing when they were younger.


I’d give myself time to indulge in the things I now understand are the most important.


What I wouldn’t give to extend those goodnight kisses, instead of moaning about having to get up early in the morning.


What I wouldn’t give for an extra second of cuddling my babies before they became too big to hold.


What I wouldn’t give for five more minutes on the dance floor while my legs were still strong enough to hold me.
