The zeitgeist of wellbeing and mindfulness

N

o longer just for those of the new-age persuasion, meditation and mindfulness are fast becoming leading extensions of the wellness industry; mindfulness is no longer a niche interest but well and truly mainstream. Aided by the rise of the smartphone and meditation apps, mindfulness has grown into a full-blown lifestyle choice, sitting comfortably with other healthy choices such as yoga, clean eating, green travel and spa experiences as well as artisan crafts and handmade activities. With the growing awareness of mental health, mindfulness is now seen as a useful tool that can help people manage their thoughts, feelings and attitude to life, both at home and in the workplace. According to Sensor Tower, there are now more than1,300 mindfulnessrelated apps available; the most popular, Headspace, has been downloaded more than 20 million times. To refect the demands for healthy living, many industries are evolving and transforming their businesses and brands. The consumer trend for ‘experiences’ continues to grow and diversify while purchasing choices are becoming more discerning – quality, health and sustainability are key. The mindfulness industry is reported to have generated $1.2 billion in revenue last year. Four in 10 adults in the US say they meditate at least weekly, and major companies including Google, Apple, General Mills and Goldman Sachs have adopted meditation programmes for their employees. Within the publishing world mindfulness is also making a considerable impact. UK sales of ‘mind, body, spirit’ books are booming, against a backdrop of slowing sales elsewhere on the shelves. In magazines, while there has been a steady decline in mainstream women’s fashion and lifestyle, the mindfulness and wellbeing market is growing.

Modern brands for modern lifestyles

O

ur brands are growing with the trends. Launched in 2016, Project Calm magazine is a natural link between wellbeing and crafts/ creativity – ‘Mindfulness Through Making’.

The emergence of the mindful consumer

M

indful consumption is set to be the biggest consumer trend for 2018. “Today’s consumer displays a high level of mindfulness about wellbeing and the environment,” says Innova Market Insights. “Consumers are becoming increasingly mindful in their choices, wanting to know what is in their products in order to make decisions about health, sustainability and ethical issues. “Consumers have an holistic approach to looking after their wellbeing, which increasingly focuses on peace of mind as well as the body. From health concerns driven by cleaner and overall healthier lifestyles, to environmental issues that responsible manufacturers tackle, bringing ‘peace of mind’ is key. So it is no surprise that consumers are becoming increasingly mindful in their choices, so they can make decisions about health, sustainability and ethical issues.” n Magazine consumers are no longer excited by (or loyal to)

fashion lifestyle magazines; the mindful consumer wants a magazine that gives them peace of mind. n Other interests are more important to readers: health & ftness;

yoga & pilates; walking & gardening; creativity and crafting trends. n Across the age bands, these women have a lot of common ground

in their attitudes to politics, the world, nature and family. n The aesthetic of the products they choose to buy is important to our

readers: their home interiors, the food they buy and make, the beauty products they use, the places they travel to, the magazines they read...

alking into a yoga class for the frst time takes a lot of confdence. There’s a common misconception that you have to be beautiful, bendy and blissed out to do yoga. And let’s face it, most of us aren’t. Yes, we’ve all heard that yoga is good for us and yes, we may even feel tempted to give it a try, but for many of us, we simply haven’t got the selfconfdence and self-belief to give it a go. 'It’s not for me. I’ll never be able to do that. I’m not fexible enough to do yoga.' However, here’s the thing: every body is a yoga body. YOU CAN DO YOGA Yoga is all about connecting mind and body. If you have a body and you have a mind, then you can do yoga. A yoga practice focuses on the breath. If you can breathe, then you can do yoga. Most yoga classes are about connecting the breath to the movement. It’s not about achieving a pose, but moving towards a pose. A good teacher will know the right adjustments to make each pose work for your particular body, and yoga props like blocks, bricks and straps can make each pose more accessible.

Yoga allows you to be comfortable in your body and mind, to feel good in your own skin. You will get to understand and accept your limitations better, but you’ll also discover your amazing potential, as you fnd yourself doing things you never believed were possible. So how can we fnd the self-belief to step onto a yoga mat and open ourselves up to these possibilities? TURNING ‘I CAN’T’ INTO ‘I CAN’ What we believe about ourselves affects everything we do and say. So instead of giving yourself reasons why you can’t do yoga, how about giving yourself the reasons why you can? Discover how wonderfully empowering it is to begin turning ‘I can’t’ into ‘I can’. All things are possible if you believe. That’s the mantra that accompanies the Believe Bar necklace, part of the inspirational Mantra Jewellery collection available at yogamatters.com that inspires confdence and selfbelief. You won’t achieve all that you hope to achieve in your frst yoga class, but if you believe you can do it, you’ll get there in the end.

positive afrmations Just going to a – yogamatters.com yoga class can boost stocks some fantastic your self-confdence. afrmation card decks It shows how much and journals that you care about your can help you. health and wellbeing and that you are worth caring about. That’s such a positive message in itself. You’ll fnd yourself standing taller somehow as you walk out of your yoga class and you take that self-confdence with you into the rest of your day. When you’ve said ‘I can’ to attending a yoga class, you’ll fnd yourself more able to say, ‘I can’ in all sorts of other situations throughout your day too. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Around 50% of UK adults get by on six hours or less of slumber a night, and it’s taking a toll on our wellbeing. “Getting a good night’s sleep is just as important for our health as eating well and getting enough exercise,” says medical herbalist Katie Pande. “But it’s often neglected. As well as killing our energy, poor sleep is linked to more serious health complaints, such as weight gain, depression and even an increased risk of dementia.” Luckily, there are plenty of things that we can do to improve our snoozing, by setting the scene with calming lighting, using a sleep mask and a enjoying a relaxing bedtime brew. Pukka Herbs’ night time 7-day wellbeing kit is ideal to help you have a peaceful night’s sleep. “Whether you’re sufering with sleep troubles, trying to adapt to a new sleep pattern, or just need to get a good night’s rest, herbs can give you a helping hand,” says Katie.

BRAIN BOOST

ometimes creativity comes easy – a simple idea can spark a whole host of ideas, projects and plans. Yet at other times, our creative side seems just out of reach, leaving us feeling tired and sluggish. But what can we do to boost our brain and fnd new inspiration? For medical herbalist Katie Pande, it’s all about creating the right environment. “A calm mind is essential for focus,” she explains. Having somewhere quiet that you can retreat to and let your mind wander is a good place to start. Meditation, too, could be key: “as well as aiding relaxation, it’s been found to help with sustaining attention and improving working memory,” says Katie. Our diet is also an important factor. “Blood sugar peaks and dips can make it difcult to maintain our concentration,” Katie explains. “Focus on eating wholefoods, as well as getting lots of brain-boosting nutrients.” Pukka’s Turmeric Brainwave 7-day kit is the ideal way to feed your creativity. It contains turmeric, a golden spice that is said to boost circulation to the brain, as well as natural botanicals that promote mental clarity and concentration, such as brahmi, rosemary and tulsi. Enjoy some quiet moments, sip on a calming and invigorating tea and let your creativity fow.
