Do you remember the iconic Calgon bubble bath TV commercial of 1980? In the center of the screen, amidst sounding car horns, a barking dog plus a crying baby, an over-stressed, 35-ish woman shouts above the noise, “The traffic! The boss! The baby! The dog! THAT DOES IT! Calgon, take me away!” In the next scene she is immersed, relaxing in a sudsy sunken bathtub surrounded by palatial white Roman columns. Soft flutes and harps play as the sultry voiceover soothingly suggests to, “lose your cares in the luxury of a Calgon bath”. Well, we now have about a thousand more TV channels, and styles sure have changed, but no matter how many years go by stress seems to remain a constant. You engage in a daily balancing act, trying to keep it all together, giving your time and attention to spouses, partners, kids, career, extended family and much more. In spreading yourself too thin, however, you can lose sight of one very important person – YOU!
Carving Out ‘Me’ Time to Nourish the Soul
It’s so important to take time for yourself to de-stress – to reboot and recharge your batteries so you have the energy to give to all of life’s demands. You’d never operate your car without gas in the tank, would you? The car would sputter and cough and eventually stall out. When life drains your battery and pulls you in dozens of directions it’s easy to become exhausted and feel out of balance. The secret is making lifestyle changes that allow you to take time for yourself to repair the disharmony, increase your sense of well-being and achieve balance in mind and body.
The healing arts of yoga, pilates and meditation all involve physical and mental activities that provide you with a whole new perspective and actually bring a visceral release of stress, anxiety and tension. All of these disciplines will take you on the path to enrichment and knowing your true self. And the best part? There is no fancy, expensive gym equipment needed; all you really need is the right mat! Yoga and pilates are actually forms of meditation that incorporate movement with breathing, and these traditions, if practiced on a regular basis, can help you attain a high level of self-awareness, self-esteem, calmness, mental clarity, balance and strength. By taking the time to engage and renew, you’ll be able to alter your perception of all your emotional and physical problems by becoming more aware and living in the present moment. When you combine and integrate breathing, visualization, concentration, mindfulness and body awareness, these meditative rituals promote healthy maintenance for a harmonious life. Now, Innovative Healing Touch can help you embark on your journey to a more peaceful you – with Jade yoga mats and Yogi Bags mat bags.
Unwind in the Perfect Spot on the Perfect Mat
Create your own sacred space as an oasis of relaxation for your practice of yoga, pilates or meditation. Whether it’s in your home or your favorite serene studio, any of these healing arts should bring a calming feeling to all of your senses. One of the necessary essentials is a comfortable, durable mat, and we’ve found the perfect ones to define your personal space. Jade Harmony professional mats offer exceptional resilience and incomparable cushioning, so you’ll stay comfortable with every position and pose as you journey inward. Try one and you’ll immediately feel the difference! Jade mats are your natural choice, made with eco-friendly, open-cell, natural rubber; a renewable resource tapped from rubber trees. They contain no PVC, synthetic rubber or ozone-depleting substances. Natural rubber is well known for offering unmatched slip-resistance and as a result, you no longer have to worry about losing traction on the mat even if it gets wet with perspiration. They are available at Innovative Healing Touch in different sizes and a variety of gorgeous colors that soothe the soul.
Jade Gives Back
