Remember...And Be Grateful

November is the time to remember the important things in life - beginning with the sacrifices of all the men and women who have fought for our freedom. One way to honour them is by living and appreciating each moment and to be grateful.

Life is hectic. With work, school, family, sports, lessons...and a myriad of other activities, which can leave you feeling stressed and overwhelmed, it's difficult to remember to slow down, take a moment to clear your head, and be present in the moment. 

Before you know it days, weeks, and months pass and the important things in life are put on hold, including family and friends. Your mental and physical health could soon reach the breaking point.

So, we suggest you take a gentler pace this month - create a time-out from your regular schedule. Plan a dinner gathering with friends or family. Organize a girl's day out (or a private getaway for yourself) for a delicious spa experience. Sit back. Relax. Reset the mind and body. 

 
Our Top 5 Ways To Unwind

#1 Exercise. Get moving...take a quick walk with your favourite fur buddy or a short jaunt around the office. Simply standing up to stretch during a break at work can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation. When you get your blood moving you release endorphins, which improves your mood.

 #2 Call/Visit a Friend. There's nothing better than letting off steam by sharing your problems with a friend. Good relationships are important for your health - a reassuring voice, even for a few minutes, can put everything in perspective. (And remember to call and share your triumphs, too.)

#3 Breathe Easy. The advice "take a deep breath" may seem like a cliché, but it holds true when it comes to stress. For centuries, Buddhist monks have been conscious of deliberate breathing during meditation. 

Try it yourself. When you're feeling stressed, sit straight in your chair, feet flat on the floor, hands on your knees. Breathe in and out slowly and deeply, aware of your lungs fully expanding. Repeat with five deep breaths. While shallow breathing causes stress, deep breathing oxygenates your blood, helps centre
your body, and clears your mind.

#4 Laugh It Off. Yes, laughter is the best medicine as it tricks your nervous system into making you feel happy.  Get together with friends and enjoy a game of mini golf or watch a funny movie. Laughter releases endorphins that improve mood and decrease levels of the stress-causing hormones cortisol and 
adrenaline. 
 
#5 Be Mindful. Listen to your body. Get a massage, a facial, or pedicure. Sometimes, taking that hour out for yourself will help you let go of negative thoughts and allow yourself to heal. We often forget our bodies tell us when something's wrong. Skin breakouts, sore muscles, or soft/brittle nails are all signs your body is telling you to slow down and relax.

Honey is nature's sweetest, purest treat and this manicure is pure bliss. We'll help to whisk away life's daily stress as you breathe in the sugary scents to calm the senses.

When cool weather starts knocking, scents of sandy exotic beaches are the perfect pick me up. Start this soothing pedicure with a therapeutic aroma-infused jet tub.  An exfoliating coconut scrub will banish dry and rough skin before indulging in our soothing paraffin wax.
