One of the things I learned during lockdown, which I still do today, is to stop to breathe and meditate. I’ve suffered from anxiety ever since I was very young. I’ve always known how to solve this problem but at times, anxiety turned into something more serious, like a panic attack. And we all know that panic attacks are quite complicated to manage.
Obviously, the easiest option is to resort to traditional medicine to calm our body, but it’s not the solution. To learn to master my anxiety and stress, I turned to psychotherapy, which really helped me control my emotions.
Another solution was to listen to my body. For this I simply use my Spotify account (if you don't have this application, you can find several “mindfulness” videos on YouTube). All it takes is 10 minutes a day at home. If you can't do it at home, find a moment to do it in your office with your headphones on.
A playlist on Spotify with various sounds and relaxing music, which help you sleep better.
When you want to think about a relaxing massage with your partner or friend, besides using our Relax body oil, take advantage of this playlist with a mix of new age and piano music.
Nature is definitely a master when it comes to helping us relax and disconnect from our daily stress. Take advantage of this selection of different rain sounds for a moment of relaxation.
One of my favorite playlists and my go-to for meditation. These sounds of Tibetan bowls will help you relax and open your mind, bringing you peace.
During more critical moments of lockdown, I used this playlist which is a mix of sounds and relaxing music. I managed to fall sleep with this meditation.
We talked about this podcast before in a story, but I would like to mention it again because of the work they do to understand emotions and how to deal with certain problems and situations.
One of the advantages of our products is that some of them can help you relax in the most complicated moments. In your shower, use our Relax soap with lavender and rosemary essential oils that help you calm down and relax. Finish by moisturizing your skin with our Relax oil. Its aroma and combination of chamomile, lavender and geranium essential oils help calm irritated and sensitive skin.
Some people amuse themselves with a cup of tea, others sing their favorite song. Both are pleasures that last a few minutes, in the blink of an eye.
Here at Per Purr we believe in the magic of these fleeting moments, which is why we would like to introduce our “5 minute reset shower” manifesto.
Everyone knows that a bath can be refreshing, but we have somehow convinced ourselves that this can only be achieved with a the typical bath with bath salts, candles, ambient music and bubbles – which we love – but realistically, who has time to take a bath like that every day?
Well, here we are, ready to redefine the concept of a refreshing bath, to convince you that 5 minutes is enough to disconnect and recharge your batteries, so you can tackle your day with renewed energy, and the desire for more!
While you’re alone in the shower, here’s our challenge to you: resist the urge to constantly stare at your iPhone screen and shift your gaze inward.
