Stressed About Travel? Try This

While many of us travel to relax and unwind, the reality of travel is that it can be stressful.

From taking time away from regular routine, to creating plans and juggling logistics, travel can lead to increased stress.

When you stay at Novotel during your travels, we want to help ensure your stay is restful and relaxing.

That's why we've partnered with Calm, the #1 App for meditation, sleep, relaxation.

While at Novotel, you'll have access to the Calm Mini app featuring curated mindfulness meditation content to help you relax and sleep better during your stay.

Benefits of Meditation

Meditation has been practiced by people right across the world for thousands of years.

Mindfulness is a central part of meditation. It involves staying focused on the present moment. This is often done through breathing exercises. As our mind wanders to other thoughts, during mindfulness meditation we bring our attention back to our breathing. Mindfulness encourages us to be present and aware of our thoughts and emotions, without judgement.

Practising mindfulness meditation can be beneficial to our health and wellbeing in many ways.

Some of the benefits of meditation include:

  1. Stress Reduction: meditation can help reduce stress and promote relaxation. 

  2. Improved Focus: meditation can teach us to focus on the present moment, enhancing our concentration.

  3. Enhanced Emotional Wellbeing: meditation can promote emotional wellbeing by teaching us to pay attention to our emotions without judgment.

  4. Increased Self-Awareness: meditation can help us increase our self awareness which can lead to personal growth.

  5. Better Sleep: meditation can calm the mind, helping us to unwind and fall asleep.

  6. Increased Resilience: meditation can help us to build resilience by encouraging the development of a balanced perspective.

  7. Enhanced Creativity: meditation can boost creativity by quieting the mind, allowing innovative ideas to emerge.

  8. Better Relationships: meditation can help us improve the relationships we have with others by promoting empathy and compassion.
