Space in the Pace

Space in the Pace

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, finding a moment of tranquility and peace can seem like an elusive dream. The constant demands of work, family, and social commitments can leave us feeling overwhelmed and drained. However, it's crucial to carve out some 'space in the pace' for yourself to unwind and recharge. Here are five simple yet effective ways to do just that:

1. Sip and Savour

There's something inherently calming about the ritual of making and enjoying a cup of herbal tea or matcha. Take a break from the chaos and brew yourself a soothing blend to enjoy.  Find a quiet corner, away from screens and distractions, and let the warmth of the tea envelop you. Sip slowly, savouring each moment as the aromatic herbs work their magic, offering a respite from the day's hectic pace.

We love Match Made's premium organic Matcha lattes available in both original, vanilla and cinnamon flavours and Better Tea Co.'s range of delicious herbal teas.

2. A Soak in Serenity

Transform your bathroom into a sanctuary of relaxation by drawing a warm bath. Add a few drops of your favourite bath products, light some candles, and let the calming atmosphere wash over you. As you immerse yourself in the water, allow your mind to unwind and release the tension held in your body. A bath not only cleanses the physical body but also provides a serene escape for your mind.

Try the Wellington Apothecary's Blue Chamomile salt blend to ease muscle tension and encourage deep, restful sleep or Koa Organics calming and detoxifying Epsom and Himalayan Pink salt with organic lavender essential oil for a truly indulgent experience.

3. Mindful Moments

Meditation is a timeless practice that can bring profound stillness to your mind. Take a few minutes each day to sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Let go of the worries and distractions, allowing your mind to settle into the present moment. Whether it's a guided meditation or silent reflection, incorporating this practice into your routine can help create a mental oasis amid the chaos.

Why not elevate your practice with a Body-Space Mist by Plant Potions?  These 100% plant-based mists are a wonderful meditation tool to help settle the mind before a sit, simply spray around the head and shoulders.

4. Harness the Power of Breath

Sometimes, all it takes to find 'space in the pace' is a conscious effort to connect with your breath. Engage in simple breathwork exercises to centre yourself. Deep, intentional breathing can activate the body's relaxation response, reducing stress and promoting a sense of calm. Practice diaphragmatic breathing or explore techniques like box breathing to anchor yourself in the present and regain focus.

Introduce some aromatherapy to enhance the experience with Indie & Mae's range of essential oil roller blends. Simply dab on pulse points and allow the luxurious aromas to bring you unparalleled calm.  

Or wear one of these enchanting gemstone Chakra Bracelets by Cloud Nine Jewellery as a gentle reminder to stop and take a mindful breath during the day.

5. Peace by Piece

Engaging your mind in a non-digital, tactile activity like solving jigsaw puzzles can be surprisingly therapeutic. Set aside some time to immerse yourself in the challenge of piecing together a beautiful image. The focused attention required for this task allows your mind to shift away from the daily grind, offering a mental break while fostering a sense of accomplishment.

We love these premium puzzles by PieceHouse, each captivating design has been exclusively created by a NZ artist.
