Poolside table and screen with orchid design

Relaxing by the pool = ” Me time “

I really enjoyed painting this pool side table and screen for a residence in Mayfair.  The calming orchid design and choice of vibrant colours guided by the client, balanced this private little oasis of calm and tranquility in the busting heart of the metropolis.

Relaxing by the pool-" Me time "

Chances are, your ever-growing to-do list doesn’t include one very important task: Relax. But managing stress is the secret to staying healthy. Think you don’t have time to unwind? Here are some stress-relieving tips to get you from OMG to OM in less than 15 minutes.  You can do these in the spa pool.

1. Meditate

A few minutes of practice per day can help ease anxiety. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,” says psychologist Robbie Maller Hartman, PhD, a Chicago health and wellness coach.

Sit up straight with legs crossed or what ever makes you comfortable. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting — out loud or silently — a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Louise Hay has some brilliant affirmations. Empty your mind.

2. Breathe Deeply

Give yourself a 5-minute break from whatever is bothering you and focus instead on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth.

“Deep breathing counters the effects of stress by slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure,” says psychologist Judith Tutin, PhD, a certified life coach in Rome, Ga.

3. Be Present

All day you rushed through dinner, hurried to appointments, raced to finish one more thing on your agenda. Now try something different: Slow down.

Have a look at Oprah’s interview with Eckhart Tolle ( The Power of Now )

4. Reach Out

A good social support system is one of the most important resources for dealing with stress. Talking to others face-to-face is a great way to better manage whatever is stressing you out.  So move over and make space for your partner or friend.

5. Tune In to Your Body

Mentally scan your body to get a sense of how stress affects it each day. Sit in the spa, or with just your feet dangling in. Start at your toes and work your way up to your scalp, noticing how your body feels.

“Simply be aware of places you feel tight or loose without trying to change anything,” says Tutin. For 1 to 2 minutes, imagine each deep breath flowing to that body part. Repeat this process as you move your focus up your body, paying close attention to sensations you feel in each body part.

Identity – an insightful Book by Stedman Graham

Identity – an insightful Book by Stedman Graham

Annie with Stedman Graham, and David Beckham signed England shirt

Identity – an insightful book by Stedman Graham.

A few months ago I was very honored to meet Stedman Graham at a JTFoxx event.

Having presented him and Oprah with a signed England football shirt from David Beckham, another of my clients, I downloaded and read ‘Identity’, Stedman’s latest book, and was suitably impressed by his humbleness and his quiet authority.

Business identity is not what you say about your business, it is what your clients say about your business.

Reading Stedman’s book prompted me to look at my business identity, and read over what my many clients have said about Annie Newman Studio over the years.

Splash out!

Do you like colors? Sometimes it pays to be bold.  I have seen a lot of taupes and creams over the years, and adding splashes of pinks and blues, as seen here on our Limited Edition Table Mats can be inspiring.
