The Art Of Slowing Down

A couple of weeks ago, Kendra, owner of our Vancouver franchise, was able to attend an event for entrepreneurs from Vancouver and Squamish at Aika Spa, hosted and organized by Ian Coll. The event was focused on escaping the busyness of their daily lives by fostering a deeper connection with themselves and each other. 
During the retreat, she engaged in various activities designed to rejuvenate their bodies and minds. Movement sessions, included hiking, yoga, and stretching exercises, helped to reconnect with their physical selves. They practiced mindfulness and meditation techniques to cultivate inner peace and clarity.
Embracing the art of slowing down allowed them to be present in the moment and appreciate the simplicity of nature. Immersing themselves in their natural surroundings, they engaged in forest bathing, soaking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest to enhance their mental and physical well-being. Nourishing their bodies with wholesome, nutritious food emphasized the importance of a balanced diet.
They experienced the therapeutic benefits of alternating between the heat of the sauna and the refreshing coolness of nature, promoting detoxification and relaxation. The heart of the retreat was the deep, meaningful conversations they shared. They explored various topics, focusing on understanding and addressing their needs as entrepreneurs and individuals. This open dialogue fostered a sense of community and mutual support, creating a foundation for lasting relationships.
Overall, The Art Of Slowing Down, provided them with a much-needed break from their entrepreneurial endeavours. By reconnecting with nature and each other, they gained valuable insights and renewed energy to bring back to their daily lives and businesses.
