Digital Stress – Digital Detox

Arianna Huffington caused a bit of a stir on Facebook this week when she announced that she would be taking an ‘Email Detox’. Nothing wrong with that I thought, I’m a firm believer in disconnecting to reconnect. It wasn’t until I actually read her intention that I understood what all the fuss what about;

For the first time in my life, I have gone on an email detox, courtesy of HuffPost’s new vacation email tool. Anyone who emails me will receive a response explaining that the email will be deleted. If it is urgent they are invited to reach out to an alternative contact. If it is not, they can reach out when I’m back.” (Arianna Huffington Facebook 29th July 2015)

Never one to sit on the fence when it comes to wellness issues, I posted a comment in reply;

I think that whilst many would agree that a disconnect from technology is a beneficial thing, the ‘delete’ comes across as a disregard of others and what they wish to communicate. I’m sure a delayed response message would allow you personal freedom whilst respecting the views of those who are reaching out to you.”

Ask the Experts : Oriental Medicine

Qigong at Como Bali

I’ve been feeling the stress of running a business, being a single Mum of a six year old and going back to business school lately. I knew that my body was out of sync, but I didn’t ‘have time’ to do anything about it. Screech and rewind!

I run a luxury wellness travel company for goodness sake. How am I supposed to inspire others if I can’t keep myself balanced and healthy?  Without further ado, I booked a private consultation in with David Melladew, Oriental Medicine Consultant at one of our favourite wellness sanctuary partners, COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali.

He began the session with a divine tea ceremony. I love people who are passionate about what they do and that shone through with David. Like myself, he has a genuine drive to help others live in health and vitality and by the end of my consultation I had a accurate diagnosis, an action plan of what to do about it which included some easy steps to do at home and he’d inspired me so much on Traditional Chinese Medicine, that I felt like going to college again!

In this Ask the Experts Health Blog I ask David about Stress and how Oriental Medicine can play a part in finding that essential life balance. Chill out and read on…
