De-stressing in the New Year

The New Year is the traditional time for us to set about revitalising our lives – engaging in a little post-Christmas pre-Spring cleaning, detoxing after a season of indulgence and resolving to make changes for the year ahead.

This is a time we often spend identifying the negatives in our lives and resolving to do better in those areas. However, it’s important to remember that self-improvement should be balanced with self-care. The changes we make in the New Year shouldn’t just focus on reducing our clutter or our waistlines, but on shrinking our stress-levels too.

Aromatherapy is an excellent, easy means of introducing a calming influence into your routine. A practice dating far back into our history, aromatherapy uses the therapeutic powers of fragrance to promote wellbeing and stimulate the senses. Drawing its power from natural essential oils, depending on the fragrances in each blend aromatherapy can be used to improve relaxation, concentration or mood.

With an amora Scent Hub, it’s easy to enjoy aromatherapy at home, when it best suits you. Combining technology with pure and natural essential oils, Scent Hubs provide an aromatherapy experience adapted to a busy modern lifestyle.

New Year, Restored You

Lethargic? A bit run down? Still finding Quality Street wrappers and bits of brie down the back of the sofa? Ah, it must be January, the month of the year reserved for feeling distinctly “not quite yourself” following a month of indulging, socialising and generally throwing all caution to the wind. The January blues are a real thing, and they’re taking over. But how do you conquer them? Traditionally, it’s all about adopting that ‘new year, new me” mind-set, promising yourself a shiny new version of ‘you’. We disagree, we think it’s far more valuable to restore the real you, taking the time to focus on how you feel and how you would like to feel.

Bring the Spa Home

There are 101 (possibly more) stresses bound to modern life, so much so that we often don’t even notice the stress we carry around with us every day. From work, home, money and everything in between, it’s easy to find your shoulders hunching closer and closer to your ears, and a lot harder to bring them down again. Since we don’t always physically see the negative effects of stress, we often overlook how detrimental it is to our health. But here at Ashleigh & Burwood we reckon it’s time to make a few changes. It’s time to squeeze in some much needed ‘me time’ (and refuse to feel guilty about it). You can take 10 minutes, you can take whatever time you have, but even the shortest of weekly pampering sessions has got to do us some good, hasn’t it?
