Balance ~ Our story to #BringBackBalance

Balance – that’s a tough word.

By Ishita B Saha: Hope you have settled well into 2017! For me, the year has already started in the fast forward mode. This year I have promised myself that I am only moving forward and I am going to ‘work’ on making myself happy. Yes, that has become a work too!

We are very excited to launch our new Wellness category called ‘Balance’ with a special campaign called #BringBackBalance in collaboration with Oman Insurance Company (OIC) and Bupa Global. A series of bespoke events follow at various venues for the next few months, the first one kick starting at Tesoro, Taj Dubai. We are also very happy to have Verve Marketing & Communications on board as our PR & Marketing Partner for this campaign.

Why Balance? I feel that we are ignoring the simple basics that used to bring us happiness. What makes me happy? When I cook for my family, when I listen to my girls’ non-stop chatter, when I plan our family holidays with my husband and the girls, when I sit up cozy with my close friends over drinks and good food, when I see the sun rise and set every day, when I blog and… when I dance! Yet, I am not making time for all of these as much as I should because… in my mind there is too much happening – both in my work and personal life. And not being able to do what makes ME happy, have added up to my guilt, disrupting my happiness even more.

STRESS. Yes, it’s the factor called STRESS that has probably gotten into me just like many of you. We feel we have too many things on our plates. What we really want is for you focus more on yourself, your mind and the surroundings that we live in and happiness shall follow. Come, join us in our gentle crusade on STRESS, a not so gentle issue that’s slowly afflicting our lives, whether we recognise it or not. Let us lend our voices to each other and let’s #BringBackBalance!

What makes you happy? If you have been able to figure that out already, your life’s really sorted then!

It’s all about #Balance and Balance is all about making the right ‘choices’, isn’t it? Pancakes are such a huge breakfast favourite with the Z-Sisters and I have given them the task to ‘choose’ while in the kitchen. So honey and fresh fruits over chocolate syrup and smarties now! #healthybliss #inmykitchen #weekend
