An image of a couple of white stones stacked on top of each other has always enticed me; there’s something inherently relaxing about it. So, when I heard about FoodeMag dxb’s special campaign #bringbackbalance in collaboration with Oman Insurance Company (OIC) and Bupa Global (along with THE image, of course), I knew I had to sign up.
Stress is everywhere. All sorts of situations cause stress. All kinds of people undergo stress. High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, infertility, anxiety, depression and more, are often a result of stress. Campaign #bringbackbalance aims to recognize that STRESS is a concern but you can manage it. They intend to do this via a series of bespoke events with wellness practitioners, nutritionists and experiences shared by real people like you and me.
To embark on this journey, they initiated a Farm to Table competition in February this year, giving a few lucky winners (including myself) the chance to unwind. The prize included a trip to the Organic Oasis AE where we harvested veggies along with Chef Aabhas Mehrotra, Chef de cuisine at TAJ DUBAI and on return to the Tesoro Terrace, their life coach and medical practitioner shared some simple techniques to de-stress. What followed was a bespoke lunch prepared by Chef Jitin Joshi, Executive Chef at TAJ, Dubai and the Tesoro team.
Words would do injustice to an experience this like, so I’ve decided to make this pictorial.
In keeping with their word, they are back with an invite to their second #bringbackbalance event series on Wednesday, April 12th 2017 – Retreat & Relax in the midst of desert and dunes! The day will focus on mindfulness and gratitude and they will be running sessions on nutrition and wellness followed by a private lunch at the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa. Want to be a part of this? Join their competition here. I’ve entered and hoping that my Goddess of Luck is benevolent this time around too!
