Wellness Weekly Round-up 

Each week we pull together our top articles on the latest in the spa, wellness and hospitality industries.    

Workplace Wellness: The Wellness Cubicle 

After travelling and studying mindfulness throughout India and Nepal, designer Lee McCormack was inspired to design his product called the “Orrb” which he created in order to fill the gap for private space in our increasingly open world. From open social media profiles to open concept offices, McCormack questioned when humans were getting a chance to be alone, and so, the Orrb Wellness Device was born. This year, the product is emerging in the world of workplace wellness, inclusive of guided meditations, mindfulness and breathing exercise.

Innovation: Nap Spa    

Say goodbye to complicated wellness offerings and return to the number one proven way to improve well-being - sleep. The power of the midday nap is finally being given the credit it deserves, as places like Nap York and Spa Le La are branding themselves as luxury nap destinations.  At Nap York, people can nap and relax 24 hours a day in one of the twenty three pods that await stressed out and tired New Yorkers.  At Spa Le La in Los Angeles, the comfortable nap room is available in the spa itself, complete with a weighted sleep blanket, warmed flaxseed pillows and more.
