A New Era Gives Birth to New Values
In almost no time, the world has changed beyond recognition. Rapidly and without much prior warning, we all continue to have to learn to adapt to something we can't yet really imagine.
What this pandemic teaching us?
The biggest challenge that the Coronavirus is throwing at us is nobody knows how life will be post-post-COVID. This induces a lot of fear and anxiety or – at the least it seems – frustration, anger and worry. We are living through a collective change, and although restrictions may be lifted, remnants of the trauma – the scare, the grief and the emotional pain – will be there. Most likely, there won't be a 'life as usual' or a 'business as usual' post-COVID. There will forever be the “before” and “after”.
What can I control when everything seems to be out of control?
Is the silver lining that some long-overdue shifts will have occurred in our innermost being?
To know that when something ends, something new begins.
Throughout life, we have experienced that when something ends, something new also begins. Often, though, this process is accompanied by feelings of pain and suffering. That is what makes us resist change, most often. At Soul Luxury we have made it our mission to help individuals and businesses by offering emotional wellbeing solutions to gain a deeper understanding about that societal shift affecting each of us. Health and emotional wellbeing are no longer a commodity for hotels and spas instead it has become a priority for each and everyone.
