Welcome to the summer edition of CosBeauty Magazine. It’s been a turbulent three months, and if you turn the page of any newspaper today, you’ll almost certainly be faced with images of destruction from around the world. While avoidance isn’t going to solve any major global issues, in these difficult times it is especially important to embrace the sense of sanctuary Christmas affords us by making a conscious effort to acknowledge and connect with the good in our lives. Studies show that positivity builds emotional resilience, so let’s spend time with friends and family, share gifts and gratitude, and set our intentions for the year ahead.

5 steps to improve your wellbeing

While we often find ourselves focusing on working out and losing weight, little focus is placed on improving mental health. You have nothing if you don’t have your health.

Mental health refers to the state of our cognitive and/or emotional wellbeing – it’s all about how you think, feel and behave. Mental health not only enables you to cope with the stresses of everyday life but it can also mean an absence of a mental disorder. Your mental health can affect your daily life, relationships and even your physical health. A study from 2012 published in The…

anti-ageing benefits of meditation

An extensive variety of cutting edge beauty products and procedures are available today to make us look younger, and slow down or reverse visible signs of ageing.

It’s not new; it’s not cutting edge; in fact it’s quite ancient. The way to do this is through the regular practice of a meditation technique that produces a state of very…

harness greater beauty from the inside out

Sometimes we become so busy we barely stop to catch our breath. We are on an endless treadmill, balancing our personal life and career, working on our wellness and fitness goals, planning an adventure, learning a new hobby, as well as finding that vital time to reflect. No wonder achieving life balance can be trickier than doing leg squats on a fit ball. Yes, we ALL want to look our best selves – well rested and rejuvenated, toned and taut, gorgeous and glowing. But what if for all our focus on the gift wrap, we spent as much time and effort nourishing the priceless gift that lies within? With our increasingly connected lives and the pressure we put on ourselves to live the best life 24-7, it’s no wonder meditation is the latest…
