Bed bugs: Prevention is the best cure

Two little words for one very small thing that can cause very, very big problems for the hotel industry.

A Breath of Fresh Air: World Asthma Day 2017

Asthma is a common condition, affecting all levels of society. Olympic athletes, famous leaders, celebrities, and ordinary people suffer from asthma on a daily basis.

According to estimates by the World Health Organization, 300 million people suffer from asthma all over the globe, and it’s the most common chronic disease among children. During an asthma attack, the lining of the bronchial tubes swell, causing airways to become narrow and reducing the flow of air in and out of the lungs.

How your hotel can join the sleep revolution

These days you can’t open a newspaper or magazine without landing on an article about the importance of sleep on our mental and physical well-being.

Sleeping poorly affects our ability to learn, makes us less attractive, causes weight gain, and (not for the faint-hearted!) a lack of sleep may even cause your brain to begin ‘eating’ itself.
On the flip side, good sleep gives you an advantage in sports, helps you see better, speak better, perform better, be happier, and make better decisions, amongst a wealth of other benefits

Unique Ways That Hotels Are Catering to Wellness

If you dig deep enough, the roots of the words ‘wellness’ go back to the 1600’s, meaning simply ‘a state of being well’. It wasn’t until 300 years later, in the 1950’s, that ‘wellness’ began to take off, both in language and, eventually, in lifestyle. Wellness isn’t just the idea of being or living well. It is the decision to actively pursue a healthy and fulfilling life. The concept of ‘wellness’ covers the mind, body, and spiritual life (and can extend to social life, finances, and work).

Yoga for Better Sleep: International Day of Yoga

Yoga is a 5,000 year old practice originating in India which focuses on transformation of the mind and body through concentration, mindfulness, deep breathing, and postures that stretch, realign and balance the body. This ancient practice, once reserved only for the spiritual, is now a global phenomenon that is practiced by millions the world over. Such a phenomenon, in fact, that in 2014 the United Nations declared June 21st the International Day of Yoga, a move which was supported by all 177 UN member states.
