The CBD Has Lunchtime Wellness Activities Like Meditation, Art Workshops & Cuddling With Cats

imPAct@Hong Lim Green’s Lunchtime Wellness

With a hectic work week, it’s no surprise that sometimes you just want to tune out and eat lunch alone at your desk. But your midday meal doesn’t have to be a dabao container of food that you, with your eyes glued to your computer, scarf down in between emails and calls. 

Instead, head to imPAct@ Hong Lim Green’s Lunchtime Wellness activities on selected dates from now till September 2023 to practise mindfulness in a series of workshops. Each session starts from $16/person and runs for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

The Purrfect Paws event is taking place at imPAct@Hong Lim Green on 12th April & 10th May and will involve a lot of cuddling cats. Petting cats has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety. So, expect to feel refreshed and relaxed after the session

BTW, these furry pals from SPCA are looking for their forever home. If you’ve been waiting for a sign to adopt a cat, this might be it. 

Date & time: 12th April & 10th May*, 12pm-12.45pm & 1.15pm-2pm

*Session to be confirmed

Meditate through a sound bath & stitching class

On 26th April, relax your soul and cleanse it of bad vibes with a Cocoon Sound Bath. If you’re familiar with the practice, you’ll know that on top of being able to relieve tension in your body, it can help promote better sleep and a stronger immune system

There’ll be no actual bathing involved. Instead, you’ll be meditating on the sound waves and vibrations from crystal Himalayan Singing Bowls, chimes, and bells. Because you’ll be lying down on a hammock, it might be a good idea to wear comfy clothes.

This form of practice isn’t meant to tone your calves or add flexibility. Instead, it’ll send you into a state of lucid sleep. That means your body and soul will be relaxing in a sleep-like slumber while still remaining awake and aware of the surroundings.

Yoga newbies need not worry because there’ll be a trainer telling you exactly what to do so you won’t be lost in your own breath. Or, fully fall asleep midway through.

Date & time: 16th & 30th August, 12.30pm-1.30pm
