SPREADING LOVE “Sharing what you have is more important than what you have.” - Albert Wells This year we have decided to make gifting extra easy for you. Our handy gift guide has an abundance of imaginative ideas arranged in categories to spark ideas that match your recipient’s personality. Think yogi, outdoor enthusiast, spa lover, green earth fundi and it makes it easy to select appropriately. I am also mad about the range of DIY gifting our buying team have introduced. All you have to do is grab a big glass jar, fill it with gifts in a theme, and pop on one of our gorgeous gift labels. Try a ‘Spa Junkie’ theme with soaps and body products, a ‘Foodie Fan’ filled with exotic items like vanilla pods and blossom sugar, add one of our gorgeous gift labels and you have a beautiful authentic gift package. All this activity around gifting has made me decide to get super organised this year. I know exactly what I am going to do. I have already made up a list of all the gifts I need to give; mine includes a couple of nieces and nephews, siblings, parents and some out of town guests. I am going to add some extras like candles, soaps and a few bottles of wine – then there is always the opportunity to give a gift to someone that pops up unexpectedly. I am going to order my gifts from our online store. That way all my presents arrive beautifully wrapped and I don’t have to stand in a queue at the till or carry parcels home. I know it sounds a bit like cheating, but our online team always throw in a few samples and free goodies that make the whole experience so rewarding. If you find yourself stressing about the festive season and the obligation to give, change that by seeing giving as a privilege and an amazing opportunity to practice generosity. It doesn’t have to be about spending money, there are so many ways to give. Our article some time back on ‘love languages’ shows that some people feel acknowledged through things like spending quality time with them, showing affection or recognising their deeds. If you know this about the person you love, you can make sure you match your giving efforts to what it is they need most. Besides, there is something in it for you too. A growing body of scientific research shows that giving to others can be good for your health and happiness. A U.S based researcher Stephen G Post says: “The impact of giving is just as significant as not smoking and avoiding obesity.” A study of the brain using functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has shown donating money to charity triggers the same pleasure and reward systems in the brain as food and sex. In another study, students were asked to practice five random acts of kindness a week for six weeks. The study found they experienced a more than 40 percent increase in self-reported happiness levels. So whether buying gifts or doing random acts of kindness, we wish you a festive season filled with gratitude and loving kindness. Yours in festive wellness Dr. Sean Gomes, co founder
