S L O W life in a busy city.
In this busy city, we all need to slow down once in a while and take time for ourselves. “Make time for your wellness before you have to make time for your illness”. Let’s take a breath and enjoy this little break with ZOAJE.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY
Sweat the toxins away
Doing sports in the morning is a great way to start the day and allow us to have the evening free for other activities. Since the dopamine we secrete in the morning makes us energetic through out the day. Let’s sweat the toxins away and fill our body with positive energy.
Yoga is our ZOAJE choice, we love this ancient practice that brings together mind and body while increasing our strength and flexibility.
Our little tip if you practice Yoga at home is to lighten a candle. The mixed scent of geranium, orange blossom and lavender, for example, makes you calm and delighted.
“You are what you eat”. By taking care of what you eat every day you're nourishing your body and soul. Eating home-made food makes you energetic and healthy and also avoids tons of plastic from takeaway food!
Here is a recipe of an easy-making healthy salad for those warm days.
Chicken, broccoli & beetroot salad with avocado pesto
It’s a good choice for people who want to eat healthily but don’t have much time to prepare food.
PLEASE YOUR SOUL
Slow down after work
It’s time to slow down after a busy working day. What about having a picnic on the grass? Let go of all the hassles and go back to the nature. Simply enjoy the beautiful sunset and gentle breeze with your close ones.
If you just want to spend some time alone, we also have a good idea – watch an old literary film. Immerse yourself into the story and let your mind escape for a while.
You may also try to get a nice relaxing massage or try a floating session in a spa which is an emerging leisure. Fall in a deep sleep, let all the exhaustion go away and wake up with a renewed body.
Our ZOAJE favorite spot in Shanghai is the Subconscious Day Spa located on Fumin road. We’ve known and loved this place for years and decided to team up with them and create a ZOAJE Pop up area in their beautiful and Zen lobby yay! You can now enjoy great health-care service here and choose our dainty jewelries in the same time and place!
Let’s all switch our mindset. By seeing things in a positive way, smiling more often and slowing down our lifestyle we believe that the world around us will also appear sweeter and good things will come back to you.
