HNC Goes to a Mindfulness Class – Calm Edinburgh
At GlamCandy, we care deeply about the mental health and well-being of our students.
To highlight this further, we recently took our HNC class to Calm Edinburgh, to attend Lynette Gray’s ‘Mindfulness Meditation Class’, accompanied by tutors Rachael Melrose, Vicky Cameron and Paige Gilbride.
A Calmer Place
Lynette warmly welcomed students to Calm Edinburgh with green tea and water and invited them in to their meditation class. Yoga mats were laid on the floor, each with a card laid on top. Students were given a brief introduction and were then asked to read the cards. Each revealed the answer to the health questions that students had asked prior to the class.
The purpose of this class was to help our students focus on their mental health, and allow GlamCandy to support them in coping with their studies.
Raising awareness of the importance of looking after your mental and physical health, Lynette taught our students how to use a range of de-stressing techniques. Through controlled breathing and guided meditation, students were taught how to manage any unwanted emotions they may have.
Being Mindful of the Benefits
Taking the students to this class was important in their understanding that we treat their physical and mental health as a priority. We want to offer security and stability throughout their studies at GlamCandy, and know that they can always come to us to disclose any issues that may be affecting their performance.
Lynette said, “I was honoured this month to be invited to work with GlamCandy. This is such a positive and powerful move for the make-up industry.
“GlamCandy is an innovative company who care about its employees and students wellness. Meditation will boost mental well-being, reduce stress and create a healthier workforce, as meditating boosts your immune system.”
After the class, the feedback from our students was overwhelmingly positive. Students said that it helped them become more self-aware, and were appreciative of the fact GlamCandy supported their mental development.
