Healthy air for allergy sufferers

Time to take a deep breath – literally

As a working mother of 3, Lara doesn’t treat herself very often. Her new friend Zoe helps her to switch off every now and then and make the most of her me time. The run-up to Christmas is always a stressful time so it’s important to her to take some time for herself.

As a working mother or father, do you find that you get far too little me time? Time just for yourself when you can sit back and relax?

For me as a mother, the family is always my number one priority. Us mothers take care of the children, the house and in my case, the dog too. You make sure that everyone is OK and create a nice, cosy atmosphere at home where everyone can feel good and recharge their batteries. That’s why as a mother, it is so important to recharge your own batteries and build up your own strength. I find that going to the gym or relaxing at home with a good book and a nice cup of tea do the trick for me.

My new best friend

I do that by creating my own special oasis of well-being. And there is only one person who is allowed to share it with me – Zoe, my new best friend. My aroma diffuser has an enchanting amber light that creates a magical feel-good atmosphere in our lounge. I find the dancing bronze-coloured flame both calming and empowering. Zoe indulges my senses with her fine fragrant mist. During the cold winter months, I particularly like the fragrance Recharge: I find it really inspiring. It fills the lounge with a lovely, fresh scent that smells like a pine forest and puts me in a Christmassy mood. Stressing becomes a thing of the past as Zoe gives me the peaceful atmosphere I need to focus my attention on what’s important. And if I come down with a cold, the fragrance Relief makes me feel good again. The warming scent of eucalyptus relieves cold symptoms and strengthens my immune system. Because of her USB connection, I often take Zoe with me to the office* and since I can dim the atmospheric Amber Light whenever I want, she also lets me get a good night’s sleep too.

The run-up to Christmas

Me time has already become a definite ritual for me – in the same way that I go to the gym on a regular basis. Then I consciously take time for self-reflection and yoga or I simply clear my mind of everyday thoughts and immerse myself in a book. Instead of a fire in the fireplace, it’s Zoe that ignites our excitement in anticipation of the Christmas celebrations. Until then, watching Zoe’s dancing flame has a calming effect on me and makes me feel a warm glow of contentment.

I’m already looking forward to giving Zoe as a present to my nearest and dearest so that they can enjoy this oasis of well-being too…

*Lara works in the Customer Service department at Stadler Form and therefore in spite of the coronavirus, she sometimes works at the office rather than from home.

Thanks Lara for this wonderful review in the run-up to Christmas!
