The Small Steps That Make a Big Difference

Posted by Lucy Page 1

I’m writing this at 7.48am from the office, already been for a run, done the school drop off (before school club you total lifesaver) and a dozen emails in. Wonder woman? No. Exhausted? Yes. It’s just been a crazy busy few months chasing my tail to be honest...

It happens I reckon once a quarter, when everything just gets on top of me. You know the moment, when you’re cursing at the dog/washing machine/ kettle/other innate object because you cannot. Fit. Another. Bloody. Thing. In. *sniffs Happiness Reed Diffuser with gusto*

An extra thing on my plate this month, that’s been welcome (I must say) because I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it, is the John Lewis Wellbeing Workshops across the country. They are really fun evenings with myself and some of my wellbeing gurus travelling across the country explaining a little more about Neom, how I started the brand, the story behind it and then moving into a bit of a bigger wellbeing discussion with some great hints and tips on how you can get more out of your wellbeing. The one thing that seems to have resonated with those who have come so far (and if you haven’t got tickets you can do by clicking here I would love to meet you!) is the Neom mantra ‘Small Steps, Big Difference”.

I’ve always believed that wellbeing can start in the small moments. The shower drops that help you kick ass at 6am, leaving you energised and ready to go. The candle that creates a tranquil calm zone in your busy family home.The deeply relaxing bath that prepares you for a perfect night’s sleep. Our fragrances are 100% Natural with true wellbeing benefits: to help relieve stress, aid sleep, boost your energy or lift your mood. Wellbeing. Small Steps, Big Difference.

It’s something that I need to remind myself of right now, when work life balance is pushed to the max. Sure a yoga retreat in Ibiza would be lush but hey the purse and the diary aren’t in agreement so I’m making the little moments work. This mantra is the bedrock of the brand (and my life!) because I really do think you can start your wellbeing journey small.

One of the customers at the Leeds event took me to one side and told me how life with 3 children, working 10-12 hour days and a sick mother in law was taking it’s toll. She’d recently been into the Leeds store and treated herself to a Tranquillity Bath & Shower Oil. She’d learnt the Neom breathing technique and had been following some of our pre-sleep yoga moves. With tears in her eyes she thanked me for opening her eyes to some simple tools she could integrate into her evening routine that gave her just 15 mins of time for herself, that helped her decompress from a hard day and prepare her for a great night’s sleep. This small step has made all the difference.

Moments like this totally make my year because I absolutely believe that even one small step in the right direction, a 5 minute break in the day can kick start this journey for you, so don’t be put off by the size 8 instagramming Goddesses drinking green smoothies in the dappled sunlight….they are wellbeing guru extraordinaires, but you can feel better yourself...today.

Some other fun things happening right now… the King’s Road store is now alive and kicking and looking absolutely stunning. It’s somewhere you can come and hang out for a bit if you want 5 mins to sit down, grab a cup of tea (the kettle is always on) and just relax.  All the Neom shops are offering complimentary Sleep Schools at the moment too which are fab. Grab a friend (or 5) and get yourself booked in, if they have time they’ll book you in on the hoof. It starts with a consultation about your Sleep quality and your pre bedtime routine.
 

We identify patterns that might need either a full overhaul or a small tweak. We talk about food to eat (and avoid), clever tricks to weave into your evening and demonstrate the perfect bath and bedtime routine. There’s lovely teas, an inspiring library and brilliant Neomologists to talk through all your lifestyle queries. It’s a lovely afternoon trip, we would be very happy to welcome you into London, Leeds or Wimbledon (don’t forget to book a lush treatment in this store they are simply the best wellbeing massages and facials in the world!)


So until next month, remember the Neom mantra (it’s going nowhere!) Wellbeing...Small Steps Big, Difference. I’d love to hear from you and how you’re weaving those steps into your life on social.


Have a lovely month, enjoy the sun and look after yourself.
