ESSEX, ENGLAND, December 01, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Chocolate Buddha has gained a great deal of recognition throughout 2016, not only for its stunning athleisure products, but also for the informed lifestyle advice it provides to its customers.
Owners Kerry Doyland and Lyn Long now plan to use their brand platform to encourage stressed patrons to improve their wellbeing via a fast, simple meditation technique.
The company is encouraging its audience to take just one minute out of their day to practice a unique mindfulness exercise that has been proven to lower stress levels and alleviate the symptoms associated with burn-out - symptoms that are unfortunately experienced too often by those caught up in today's fast-paced environment.
Kerry, Lyn and the Chocolate Buddha team are distributing unique meditation cards with instructions on how to practice mindfulness with something as simple as a ball of chocolate.
The cards outline their simple chocolate meditation concept, which is as follows:
- The individual must find a quiet spot, away from noise and distractions, where they can sit and close their eyes.
- He or she will then be asked to follow the instructions on the meditation card, which will teach them how to savour the sound, smell and taste of their food and lose themselves in the moment.
Full instructions for the chocolate meditation session can also be found on the Chocolate Buddha blog.
Those active on social media are encouraged to share their own mindfulness experience via Twitter using the hashtags #HowWasItForYou and #HavingAMoment.
Co-founder Kerry is hopeful that her new initiative will make others aware of the incapacitating effect of stress on the body, and help them discover how they can combat its ill-effects by purposefully taking just a few minutes out of their day to relax.
"Both Lyn and I have first-hand experience of extreme stress and we are fully aware of the terrible long-term effects that a constant state of anxiety can have on the mind and the body," she says.
"I myself am the technical author of a publicly available specification (PAS) on how stress is a catalyst for many critical illnesses, so I am particularly passionate about teaching people about the importance of taking a moment to slow down, switch off and re-calibrate in order to protect their health.
"We hope to distribute our chocolate meditation cards to as many people as possible to help them discover how even the briefest moment of mindfulness can improve their wellbeing."
