Encourage busy co-workers, clients and business partners to escape the demands of the digital world with thoughtful gifts that refocus the mind.
Rather than frantic multi-tasking, taking time to focus on the present moment is often more productive.
In a hyper-connected world, social media, digital devices, and inboxes are constantly competing for people’s attention. With so much background noise, it’s easy to confuse feeling busy with being productive.
But rather than frantic multi-tasking, taking time to focus on the present moment is often more productive. Neuroscience shows that when people pay attention to their physical state, thoughts, and emotions, brain activity is boosted in areas that control learning and memory. This “mindful” state lowers stress levels and enhances a sense of wellbeing.
Create a Soothing Ambience
The right atmosphere is key to a digital detox. In the home, candlelight is a soothing antidote to the blue glare from computer and smartphone screens. The gentle glow of tealights will bring a sense of calm to any room, adding something truly magical.
The physiological and psychological benefits of cut flowers are well documented. Scent sends messages to the limbic system—the area of the brain associated with memory and emotion, and a splash of color is an instant mood-enhancer. Use vases to turn even the simplest flower arrangement into tranquil focal points at home or on a work desk.

Evoke a Hygge Feeling
There is a growing trend, largely driven by Millennials, for the workspace to be more like an atelier—or even a home from home. Relaxed finishing touches, such as picture frames that reflect available light, will look equally stylish in a work or a home setting. Far more satisfying than scrolling through hundreds of images on a camera roll, it’s the perfect way to evoke a special place or moment.
A growing number of companies are recognizing the benefits of mindfulness in the workplace. Encourage co-workers, clients and business partners to take time out from the digital world with Swarovski crystal gifts that will help them de-stress and refocus.
