“Living well is practically the entire world’s shared dream.”

Global Wellness Day, an initiative introduced in 2012 in Turkey, originated after founder Belgin Aksoy came to the realization that the desire to live well is dominant internationally and is a dream embraced by virtually the whole world.

Hence on Saturday, June 11, wellness in all its forms will be celebrated in over 32 countries. Heaven on Earth Wellness will be joining this worldwide movement and supporting the event at a brand level, offering activities and health advice throughout the week.

The fundamental purpose of the day is to encourage healthy living. The meaning behind it isn’t to celebrate living a high-cost life; it’s to bring attention to living a life of balance and well-being. Ultimately, it is meant as a journey of self-discovery where people find that they can change their whole lives and are given the tools to do so through exercise, healthy eating, and spiritual teachings combined. This message aligns perfectly with Heaven on Earth’s philosophy, which aims at putting guests in touch with their wellness.

GWD has created “7 Steps Manifesto” for healthy living that will bring a positive impact on your life.

Choosing The Best Spa Services Guide

A few years ago, getting spa treatment was considered something that only rich people did. Today, however, many spa services available are quite affordable. Many spa centers have opened across the country and people are taking advantage of the reasonable prices they charge. The most popular spa treatment is a massage, and this is something that has been around for centuries and has been credited for its health benefits.sommer_buddha

Other popular treatments provided in the spa services include facials, foot reflexology, body wraps and hair & nail treatments. Most spas also offer hair styling services, and the level of treatment available will depend on the type of spa. Some specialize in different types of massage such as reflexology, Thai massage, hot stone massage and other treatments. Whatever beauty treatment you need, you can find a spa that provides the service.

People go to the spa to feel pampered and the atmosphere is one that is relaxing. Many of the up-market spas will have best of facilities. The treatment sessions have different durations depending on the service.

Some hotels offer spa services that last for days, for those looking for a weekend of being pampered. Spas are located at various national & international airports for special Jet Lag. Spas are more popular with women than men are, but now-a-days due to high stress levels & deep awareness for health & wellness, more men are also involving themselves in spa luxury treatments

When looking for the ideal spa, one of the factors you should consider is the ambiance. The environment of the spa should put you in a relaxed mood the moment you walk through the doors. There should be no noise or distractions and the air should smell nice and clean. The amenities available are another important consideration. A spa that is well equipped will offer a wider range of services.

Make sure that the facilities are clean and all the linen provided is freshly laundered and folded neatly. These are small signs that show that the business cares about the clients. The services offered should be consistent, with well-trained staff. Being a masseur requires training and a good spa will make sure that they employ well-trained staff who have good customer care qualities. When you go to the spa, you should expect to be treated in a courteous manner at all times.

Most spas require clients to make reservations for the service. This is important because the facilities usually get fully booked especially over the weekend. A good spa will have a good reservation system, which respects all the clients. The spas that get fully booked are those that offer quality services.

Spas have wide ranging services and in many cases, the costs vary widely. Some exclusive resorts will have very expensive services that target specific clientele. Those looking for a full range of personalized services can end up paying thousands of dollars for it. There are, however, affordable services that are of very good quality. If you are simply looking for a good relaxing afternoon at the spa, there are many options to consider and you can find something that suits your budget.

10 Smart Ways to Be Stress-Free At Work

work stress
Do you ever take a pause in your busy schedule and think if you really like the job you are doing? If you give it a serious thought, you may realize that it’s not about the work at all. All the grumbling, complaints and stress that you have in your job could be merely due to your lifestyle and working style. It might be true that once you are at work you really enjoy your job, but the travelling conditions, unorganized work style or your inability to manage time could be making your job very stressful for you.
Here we have listed down few simple lifestyle changes that can help you manage work related stress and make your life at work really stress-free.

1. Listen to Music On The Way to Work

Music

If you have a long commute to work and travel in car, bus or train, you can tune in to some nice soothing music. Research suggests that music can be regarded as therapy and can have its effects on mental health to improve our mood.

2. Use Essential Oils At Workplace

Work related stress has become a burning topic and many experts are constantly searching for best strategies to manage it. Using essential oils in the workplace is one the effective approaches to reduce work related stress. There are several ways in which you can get the benefits of Aromatherapy in your office. You can use an essential oil diffuser on your desk, keep a small bottle for your personal use, or spray the air with essential oils and water.

3. Sit Upright in Your Chair

Sitting upright

Wrong posture of sitting such as slouching while working on computer is associated with neck, shoulder and back pain. Did you know that occupations that require sitting for a long time, have the highest prevalence of back pain? If your job involves sitting in front of computer for a long time make sure to adjust the monitor to your eye level and keep your hands close to the body while using keyboard. To prevent the hazardous effect of prolonged immobility, all you need to do is get up and move around. Make it a habit to get up after every 30 minutes or an hour, and move for at least 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Choose Fruits Juice Over Coffee
Fruit Juice
You might be having several stressful moments at work, when everyone wants something from you urgently. And, this definitely calls for a cup of coffee. If this happens repeatedly, do you keep asking for coffee frequently? Coffee does stimulate your brain but according to experts more than 4 cups of coffee per day is hazardous to health. Bring in some healthy changes in your lifestyle by replacing coffee with water or fruit juice.

5. Put a Desktop Reminder to Drink Water

Ask yourself how many glasses of water do you drink in a day? You cannot really recollect. In fact, some people actually forget to drink water. Water is essential to keep the body temperature normal. It also helps to flush out the toxins and wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movement. Research reveals that dehydration can affect brain and cause lack of attention and memory problems.

6. Park Your Car Away From Your Workplace

Car Parking
With the busy work schedules it may be difficult at times to hit the gym or go for walk before going to work. But, what if we fit physical activity in the work schedule itself? If you look closely there are number of opportunities for some activity in your daily work schedule. One smart way is to park your car at some distance and walk few miles rather than simply stepping out of car into the elevator. So, now stop struggling to get the parking slot closest to the elevator.

7. Take the Staircase Instead of Elevator
stairs
Climbing stairs is a recognized form of vigorous physical activity. Experts suggest that you burn 7 times more calories when you take the stairs rather than taking the elevator. This happens because with every step you climb you burn about 0.17 calories. However, if you have problems with your knee or heart, climbing stairs every day can be unsafe for you.

8. Stand When Possible
standing
Majority of office goers sit for nearly 6 hours in a day. Research has shown that cumulative impact of sitting all day for years is associated with a range of health problems, from obesity to diabetes to cancer. Although not possible in all workplaces, the popularity of the sit-stand desk and stand up workstation is booming. If you cannot have a stand up workstation, make sure you split your standing and sitting time equally. Make sure to stand while you discuss work with colleague or when you talk on cell phone.

9. Eat Foods That Lower Your Stress

It’s natural to get stressed when you see work piling up in front of you. But, craving and eating food to overcome your work related stress is not a healthy solution. Research has found that in stressful situation we tend to crave for fatty, sugary, calorie-rich food because it’s not about physical hunger at all, it’s about the comfort we get through food. You must choose some healthy foods that satisfy your hunger as well as overcome your stress. Here are 5 foods that can reduce your stress Keep them handy when at work.

10. Do Some Desk Exercises

Toning-Exercises-You-Can-Do-Your-DeskExercise is a proven and effective means of reducing work related stress. But, how can you do any physical activity amidst your daily busy schedule? We are surely not referring to any vigorous activity. Instead you can do simple desk exercises as given below.
• Stretch one or both the legs and hold it for few seconds before getting back to ground. Repeat this few times
• Try the neck stretch by touching your ears to shoulders and holding for few seconds
• Stretch both your arms backwards as if you are trying to hold a pen between your hands
• To prevent wrist pain due to keyboard use, place your palms on desk and lower your body till you feel the stretch in your arms
