At the end of a long winter, many of us need a wellness recharge. We need the chance to look inward, to reflect on ourselves and to nourish our bodies. How do you do so when you’re so busy and have so many responsibilities? Certainly, you can go for a one time massage in the city, but you’ll find yourself just as stressed as you were before quite quickly.
The best way to really get the opportunity to replenish yourself is with a getaway to a location like Amanoi – Luxury Hotel, Vietnam. Nothing beats the chance to truly get away from it all and to enjoy the breathtaking views, the amazing and healthy food and the pampering that comes with a wellness package at the Luxury Hotel Vietnam Amanoi location.
They have a number of Individual Wellness Immersions that help people to change, grow and replenish. The sessions typically last from 3-14 days and include an initial orientation and wellbeing review at the beginning of the day. Then, the rest of the day allows for bodywork sessions, personalized holistic spa treatments, group movement sessions and more.
They have a weight management program, a movement and stress control program, and a longevity and detoxification program. You select your track and enjoy personalized treatments to meet your needs and desires.
And all of this is set near the Nui Chua National Park on the shores of Vinh Hy Bay. Nothing compares to the chance to truly nurture yourself and to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York City life.
New York City is a great place to be if you’re a woman and focusing on your health and wellness is important to you. There are often many events and opportunities in the area that focus on women and their wellbeing. For example, earlier this month, the NYC Health + Hospitals/King County put together an event entitled ‘GO RED for WOMEN,’ which attracted over 200 people from the community. At the event women were able to engage in activities to learn how to relax, understand more about maintaining mental health wellness (with a focus on Tai Chi and meditative outlets).
In addition, the event (that is held annually in conjunction with the American Heart Association) provided an opportunity to bring up the subject of women and heart disease given that this is the number 1 killer for the demographic and that together with stroke, this causes 1 in 3 deaths for women every year (which is greater than all cancers combined).
And then there was the recent announcement by New York’s Mayor, Cuomo, who said that he was forcing health insurance companies to cover “medically-necessary abortions” along with most types of contraception at no cost for women. He is making efforts to “firmly secure access to reproductive health services in New York State.” In a shout-out of additional support to women in this regard, a nice twist was created at New York’s Fashion Week with the “Fashion Stands with Planned Parenthood” campaign which offered its swag of magenta-colored bold buttons for designers, industry influencers, modeling agencies, PR firms, press and runway locations.
We can all help the environment in so many small ways without really feeling the impact in our own lives. How can we do this? We can consider the things that we throw out, reuse, recycle and purchase and try to make reductions wherever possible. Each of these steps can make a huge difference on landfills like the Bridgeton landfill if you think about it over a one week or one year (or many year) pattern.
Make sure that you purchase items that have been recycled whenever you can. This could include paper goods, clothing and more. You will help to reduce the impact that your purchases make on landfills.
Another creative suggestion is to clean with natural products. Rather than buying floor soap, tile cleaning, toilet bowl cleaner, counter cleaner and more, you can find ingredients in your house for natural cleaning supplies. You won’t be buying plastic bottles and purchasing more things that need to go into landfills.
