When was the last occasion you had for some ‘me time’? Gröden Balance is an opportunity for everyone wanting to improve their wellbeing and joie de vivre this spring. Our select events with experts in the field coupled to awakening to the sound of a thawing nature will provide for all the good disposition you need on your holiday. Our practical tips will inspire readers to achieve a more balanced lifestyle.
Stretch and uplift your spirit
Stand on your tiptoes and take a deep breath of the apple blossom’s aroma on the nearby tree. Reach for the ground to pick up a pretty rock. Lunge across the narrow brook in the forest. And why don’t you try and see if you can get your arms around the powerful chestnut? Stretch out in harmony with nature.
A sports drink with pizzazz
The best sports drink is one made with what nature has on offer: a watered down South Tyrolean apple juice with a pinch of salt replenishes our liquids lost during an intense sport session. Ready for a new challenge!
Top up your energies with a ‘Kneipp coffee’
The ‘Kneipp coffee’ is the perfect solution when suffering from physical or spiritual fatigue, boosting your circulation in a natural manner. Replace your regular coffee and kick off the day by filling a bathtub or washbasin with cold water. Dip your right arm into the tub up to the elbow, followed by the left arm; gently move your arms and fingers in the water. Count to thirty and remove the arms from the water at the latest when it starts to become uncomfortable. Shake the remaining water off your arms and let the fresh, outdoor air dry them off. That’s one way to start the day with a kick!
A good night’s sleep does wonders for your quality of life
Our organism regenerates itself while we sleep. Follow your bio-rhythm during your holiday, integrating simple tricks into your everyday life. Open the windows, air the rooms and make sure the temperature is about 18°C. Relax before going to sleep by going for a walk, taking a warm bath, or listening to peaceful music. Turn your phone off or activate flight-safe mode to reduce the amount of radiation.
Running without being short of breath
Close your eyes and open up all your senses to nature. Listen to nearby sounds and breathe in all the scents you come across. Breathe through your nose. Exhale. Focus exclusively on breathing. Start running and focus on maintaining a calm, deep, and regular breathing. In a few moments, your legs will follow your breathing rhythm, and not the other way round.
