Inner peace can be difficult to find amongst the flurry of meetings, conference calls, email exchanges, and incessant calendar notifications that plague our everyday lives. How, the modern worker may ask, can I maintain the appearance of elegant tranquility among all this madness?
Well, to those who feel like they’re at the end of their rope, we at Wallpaper* say — fear not! Our wellness retreat will teach you how to feel great and look even better.
For the busiest among us, life often feels like a constant balancing act. Try regaining your equilibrium by sitting on one of these bouncy balls. Its effectiveness is yet to be determined but, either way, those shiny silver spheres will liven up any room.
Coffee and chocolate are quick fixes for fatigue, but for long lasting results try your (very slowly moving) hand at Tai Chi. Your chi will be aligned in no time and, thanks to the steady movements of the practice, you won’t even break a sweat in your wool suit.
As far back as the Ancient Greeks, people knew that a sound body means a sound mind. In an effort to avoid unsightly trouser creases, we prefer to keep our fitness regime low-cardio. Here, you see one of our most popular arm exercises. This workout, known simply as “holding a rope”, allows practitioners to develop just enough upper arm strength to lift two, maybe even three magazines.
Complex wellness practices are well and good, but sometimes…you just need to lie down. When the desire to get horizontal hits, throw on some tasteful lounge wear and take a nap. You’ll feel better in no time.
